THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
WHEN: November 6-22, 2015; Friday and Saturday at 8 pm; Sundays at 4 pm. Pre-show begins 30 minutes prior to curtain. Come join us for contemporary music with show themes and other fun entertainment.
WHERE: St. Mary’s Community Center
TICKETS: $20 – Adults; $15 - Students/Teachers/Artists/Seniors; Free Admission for Children Grade 5 and below
Baltimore Shakespeare Factory (BSF) will present The Taming of the Shrew for its final production of the 2015 season. We are also pleased to announce that this play is again part of the Charm City Fringe Fest this year (November 13-15).
A rough-and-tumble farce centered around a lively battle of the sexes, The Taming of the Shrew brims with action and bawdy humor. The unconventional romance between a lusty fortune-hunter and a feisty sharp tongued daughter of privilege unfolds to the accompaniment of witty, fast-paced dialogue and physical humor in this excellent introduction to Shakespearean comedy.
One of the Shakespeare’s earliest and most popular plays, The Taming of the Shrew is rife with subplots involving his customary devices of disguise and mistaken identity. The vivid language, studded with elaborate puns, is an engaging complement to the play’s slapstick humor.

SCOTT PONEMONE: Up In Arms
(Scott Ponemone, Saw, watercolor on paper, 39 x 27 inches framed)
statement | Up In Arms
Up In Arms began in 2013 as a yet another variation in my lengthy watercolor series of hands where I explored how the many ways hands exemplified what it is to be human. But I soon realized that in Up In Arms paintings are much more than a celebration of our physical capacities to hold things aloft. These paintings examine our relationships to our possessions, our jobs, our fears, our fantasies, our hopes, our talents, even our most mundane objects.
I believe the paintings can be quite powerful individually. Yet I always suspected that a dialog would occur between paintings once they are presented formally in a gallery. But not until recently did I realize how magical groupings of Up In Arms paintings would be. And groups of threes-triplets-seem to work best. The selection and order within the groups are very interchangeable, and each variation instantly creates a new dynamic, a different energy, a change in tension. —Scott Ponemone

WHERE: front gallery

ABOUT ERIN FITZPATRICK
Erin Fitzpatrick, Baltimore native and graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, began her current series of portraits in mid 2008. This body of work now contains hundreds paintings and drawings of notable artists, musicians, business people, Fitzpatrick's peers, and commissioned subjects. Exhibiting extensively in solo and group shows, she has gained collectors throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
Portraits Patterns Plants: New Paintings by Erin Fitzpatrick, a collection of 18 - 48 inch oil paintings, depict models placed in interior spaces, layered with clashing patterns, textiles, and plants. Taking inspiration from interior design, fashion magazines, and textiles from around the world as well as her own collection, Fitzpatrick creates a scene rich with pattern in its wallpaper, upholstery, and rugs. Establishing a focal point amidst the layers of line shape and color, each carefully selected model is dressed in a wardrobe that is planned and curated specifically for each setting. A great departure from her earlier paintings, portraits in found settings, or devoid of background entirely, Portraits Patterns Plants... represents a visual culmination of Fitzpatrick's personal aesthetic, as well as her artistic pursuits in fiber arts and textile design.

SIGHT UNSEEN presents
A film by Su Friedrich (81 minutes, color, USA, video, 2012)
Su Friedrich in attendance
WHEN: Thursday, October 15, 8 PM
WHERE: The Red Room at Normal's Books & Records, 425 E. 31st St, Baltimore, MD 21218
A documentary of small changes evolves into an historical record of New York. The resulting film is a melancholy, essayistic requiem for a neighborhood and an entire way of life; it also provides a case study of the rapid gentrification of our cities.
In 1989, together with a group of female friends, Su Friedrich rented and renovated an old loft in Williamsburg, an unassuming working-class district of Brooklyn. In 2005 this former industrial zone was designated a residential area and the factories, manufacturers and artists’ lofts were priced out by property speculators lured by tax breaks. Friedrich spent five years documenting with her camera the changes in the area between East River and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. She shows the demolition of industrial buildings and the construction of trendy new apartments for wealthy clients, watching old tenants leave and new inhabitants arrive. As she keeps meticulous record of developments, the extent and speed of the upheaval becomes clear. Her own tenancy agreement expires too and so her documentary images and trenchant commentary become the tools of her growing anger.
ABOUT THE FILMMAKER
Su Friedrich has produced and directed twenty 16mm films and videos, including Gut Renovation (2012) her newest release. Other notable films are Hide and Seek (1996), which screened at the Berlinale and at Sundance in 1997, and Sink or Swim (1990). Her work is widely screened around the world and has been the subject of retrospectives at numerous museums and festivals including The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Rotterdam International Film Festival, The National Film Theater in London, the Bios Art Center in Athens, The Cork Film Festival in Ireland and The Stadtkino in Vienna. Her work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Royal Film Archive of Belgium, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the National Library of Australia, as well as many university libraries. The films are distributed by The Museum of Modern Art, Outcast Films, Canyon Cinema, The Canadian Filmmaker’s Distribution Center, Light Cone in Paris and the Freunde der Deutschen Kinemathek in Berlin.
Sight Unseen is a nomadic moving image series showcasing avant-garde film, video and expanded cinema. We are based in Baltimore, Maryland and have been inviting artists to perform and project since June 2012.
This screening is funded in part by The 2015 Contemporary Grit Fund Grant.

Dark and Creepy Americana Music
WHEN: Friday, October 16, 9:30 PM
WHERE: MUM’S, 1132 S. Hanover St., Baltimore
ADMISSION: $3 cover at the door and copies of the new album will be only $5 this night only
Baltimore-based songwriter, Adam Trice, and his band Red Sammy release their latest album, Creeps & Cheaters. The album is gritty, heartfelt, and soulful and delivers nine songs with lyrics that are poetic, poignant, and fresh. With the accompaniment of a full Americana-style rock band, the songs on this album erupt in all the right places.
MUM’S is a great little dive bar that is very supportive of independent music along the lines of alt-country, roots, Americana, and rock. On this night Red Sammy will be performing the album in it's entirety, revisiting older Red Sammy songs from previous albums and performing with a variety of local musician friends
“‘Sometimes You Forget What’s Real’ (a track from the new album) is a long, walking-speed tune that relies heavily on a world-weary mood to compel listeners’ ears. There’s a genial, earnest feel to the guitar that calls up August and Everything After-era Counting Crows, while the weeping electric guitar gives the tune a big ‘ol “alt-country” stamp not too far from the Jayhawks’ work. Extra bonus: Mountain Goats-quality yawps at the end of the vocals’ contributions. The whole tune comes together so beautifully that it’s hard to believe that it’s over 6 minutes long. If you’re into old-school, loose folk/country jams or any of the previous acts, this tune will perk your ears up,”
