Pathways & Vessels
Explore the concept of sentimentality through installation artwork by JD Sell and Jasmine Dillavou. Through examining everyday objects, they ask: How much of a memory is in our heads and hearts, and how much is in the object itself? Need another reason to check it out? Dillavou and Sell are also the founders of the Non Book Club Book Club, a group that meets monthly to discuss artistic and cultural concepts of all sorts. Friday, Sept. 15, 6 p.m. to midnight, and Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m., through Sept. 30, Aaron Graves’s Studio, 210 Willow St., tinyurl.com/pathwaysandvessels.
Hear Here Poetry: Black Voices Matter
With a reprise of this successful event, Hear Here is kicking off its new season of spoken-word poetry, and they have some big plans. The goal: fewer poetry slams (competition-oriented events) and more workshops, focusing on building community in the coming years. Part of this goal involves open mics focused on marginalized communities, with this all-black open mic starting them off on solid ground, and Poets Against the Patriarchy on Sept. 22 continuing that work. Friday, Sept. 15, 6-9 p.m., The Gallery Below, 718B N. Weber St., $5 suggested donation, hearherepoetry.org.
