Harvest House of Art Show Preview
Denton may have itself a new art haven as Harvest House hosts an inclusive creative experience that could be the beginning of a regular series of art shows. The event was organized by Harvest House staffer Kati Burgess, who wants to get Dentonites and bar regulars supporting local artists.
On the evening of Thursday, October 27, Dentonites can view the works of an impressive array of local artists that will be on display throughout the outdoor area. The stage will be commanded by the avant-pop sounds of Lily Taylor as well the self-described "funeral pop and death disco" of Felt & Fur. Kari Presswood-Perlman made a t-shirt design printed by Pan Ector , and they'll be available for sale. Also included is a diverse set of vendors. Weird Destiny Productions will present blacklight coloring books, Travis Sykes will be live painting, there will be ceramics, and more.
Burgess has been working at Harvest House since it opened, and she sees the potential for utilizing an expansive space to support local artists. At minimum, her goal is to put together at least 4 art shows a year for Harvest House. With the closing of J&J's basement and Rubber Gloves, it's more important than ever for Denton's current spaces to keep showcasing the weird side of Denton.
The event begins at 6pm on Thursday the 27th with music set to begin at 8pm. DJ MoMWoW will be playing tunes in between bands. Artists will be in attendance to talk about their work. Prove that Denton loves art.
