Here are a few events on tap for this weekend:
“WaterRIP” at Kerf International Gallery, Wallingford Center
Kerf International Gallery is opening a new show in the Wallingford Center. Healing Rain is a four artist extravaganza that is unusual and relevant. “WaterRIP” installation links water to humans using recycouture gowns as metaphors. “And Now Behind Door #2” is a spiral with a game about activism to play in the middle, so bring a friend or two. A room of beautiful wooden assemblages and paintings complete this large and unique show. It is the artists gift to the community. Opening parties are Saturday from the 8th 5-8 and Sunday the 9th from 3-5, hope to see you. Gallery hours will be 1-8 weekdays and Saturday and 1-5 Sunday, the show runs thru Jan 1 2013
