OPENING: Down the Rabbit Hole, ADF 2010 Season, Progression or Recession, Open Studios


Take a tumble Down the Rabbit Hole this Third Friday with the timely debut of Alice in Wonderland-inspired composite photography installation by nationally-renowned artist Tama Hochbaum.

Fittingly trippy, Hochbaum’s photographs take us for a whimsical ride through Alice’s world, along the way encountering a talking caterpillar, a tart-stealing knave, and a Cheshire cat that can disappear and reappear in the blink of an eye. The images hint at a richly textured fantasy world that honors the 19th-century fairy tale while incorporating bits of her trademark style—and her daughter—in a starring role.

Don your tea party finest, delight in some sweets from Danielle Baker, and spend some time traipsing through ROOM 100. Installation runs through April 14.

In The Cotton Room, join fellow American Dance Festival (ADF) fans as the 2010 ADF season "What is Dance Theater?" is unveiled! Be among the very first to learn which companies and choreographers will be presented during this summer's 77th season right here in Durham. Don't miss the 2010-season video montage, the chance to win valuable door prizes, an informal dance showing by local youth, and of course, an opportunity to dance the night away with your friends and family.

LabourLove Gallery's new show Progression or Recession? features artists Luke Miller Buchanan, Michael Mills, Jenifer Padilla and Jeff Bell as they explore the abandoned spaces and objects discarded by people that have either moved on to newer and better things or have vacated due to economic hardships.

In Building 3, shop an eclectic blend of 43 studio artists under one roof. Enjoy food from Only Burger and the new La Carbonera and a wine tasting from the experts at Wine Authorities as you shop the amazing art, jewelry, handmade textiles, and more locally-inspired goods at Golden Belt.
