Join us for these exciting events this March! Featuring the works of Michael Alfano.
A new sculpture exhibit, featuring the works of acclaimed artist Michael Alfano, opens at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts (HCA) this March. The exhibit, titled Ever Evolving, features Alfano’s surreal and philosophical figurative-based sculpture. The collection spans a decade of his work and premiers several new pieces. The free public exhibit runs March 1 to March 26 at the HCA Gallery (98 Hayden Rowe St., Hopkinton). For gallery hours and more information, visit www.hopartscenter.org/gallery.
Alfano’s work will also be highlighted in two unique events. In Art 3 = Dance x Music x Sculpture, Alfano’s over-sized participatory sculpture, ‘Cubed,’ will be the centerpiece of a collaborative performance event on Friday, March 3 at 6 p.m. at the HCA. Art 3 features composer, musician, and New England Conservatory faculty member Ben Shwendener and choreographer and dancer Shari Repasz. Schwendener’s nonprofit organization Gravity Arts, presents creative music and dance events around the world. A meet and greet with all three artists will follow the show. Both events are free and open to the public. Small bites and a cash bar will be made available during the event by the HCA.
Providence-based artist David Lee Black will host a meet and greet and present a Photography Workshop as part of his “Creating Your Vision” series on Saturday, March 11 from 12:30 to 3 p.m. at the HCA. In the session Black guides participants as they shoot innovative compositions with dancer Heather Seabird Brown and Alfano’s sculptures. Registration fee is $50, due in cash or check the day of the event. Attendees should bring their own equipment and cameras.
