Live Edge Furniture And A Live Comedian: This Weekend In Downtown Fargo (Mar 22-24)

Once again, it’s a weekend of two exhibit openings!

The Rourke Museum opens the University of North Dakota’s fourth annual national juried photography exhibition featuring 23 artists at 5:30 p.m. today (March 22).  According to the Rourke, “the theme of memory and myth remains consistent each year.  Memory implies a sense of nostalgia with a dusting of sentimentality viewed through an empathetic lens.”  Learn more on our website.

Steve Revland opens at ecce gallery Friday, March 22 at 6 p.m.

After that opening, at 6 p.m., head over to ecce gallery in Downtown Fargo for live edge furniture artist Steve Revland’s opening reception.  There’s something very special about live edge furniture, and this is an event not to be missed.  Kris Kerzman from ARTSPulse has a great write up on Revland.  Here is a snippet:

“I want there to be a psychology in this work,” Revland said, “a connection to the process of wood gathering and the creation of these pieces.” He adds that he hopes that story, along with the organic shapes of the wood, also serves to remind people of their connection to the Earth.

For more information about ecce gallery and tonight’s opening reception, check out our website’s event page.

Walk down Broadway after checking out the Revland event for some live music at the Listening Room.  Peter Mayer, guitarist, will start at 8 p.m.  According to the folks at the Listening Room: “For those of you who know Peter Mayer, you can attest to the quality of his concerts. Seldom will you hear Peter in the intimate atmosphere of The Listening Room. Don’t miss this unusual opportunity to her him up-close!”  For more information, click here.

Tracy Morgan, one of the stars of NBC’s “30 Rock”, visits the Fargo Theatre Saturday night, as part of his “Excuse My French” tour across the Midwest.  Tickets are still available for this very popular event.  Click here to go to our website for more information.
