For fans of ekphrasis, SF Emerald Tablet’s “Under the Influence” reading series might just be up your alley, and your salonniere will be reading there, thanks to Dr. Raina León, on 19 February 7:30pm (80 Fresno Street, SF). Mark your calendars, please spread the word and come and enjoy the works of artists Thaisa Frank, Patrick Newson, Abbie Amadio, and Joe Stillwater.
Check out the skinny on the reading series here:
The Emerald Tablet is proud to host the third round of its first homegrown performance series, co-created with and hosted by Quiet Lightning‘s Evan Karp.
Four artists perform work by some of their major influences, followed by original work created for the show that channels that influence. Artists have 15 minutes to perform and will help select the following month’s performers, so that each show is inspired by the one before. In addition, each month an influence will be announced, and we will accept submissions of original work in response; one will be selected to be performed in the next show.
More to come…
