We can't believe the 2015 Uncommon Thread Wearable Art Show was only last month! Now you can read all about the 2015 winner, Grace DuVal and her award-winning piece, No Place Like Home. Made of recycled bicycle tires and parts, this homage to The Wizard of Oz stole the show with inventive design, superb craftsmanship, and an imaginative narrative.

Friday, January 22, BRGCCA will host the eighth annual Surreal Salon Soiree (7 - 11 p.m.), an evening of costumes, art, music and more, all in honor of the exhibition itself. This will be an evening of visual art, live music, outdoor installations, and hundreds of attendees in costume, channeling their own pop-surrealist visions.

Advanced tickets for the Soiree are available at batonrougegallery.org/surreal-salon for $20 ($25 if not planning to attend in costume). Tickets will also be available at the door for $25 ($30 if not in costume). 

Entertainment from digital musician DJ Otto headlining musicians, Hank & Cupcakes. “The duo's impressive sound is so big that it's hard to believe that they are only a two piece band if you get the chance to check them out live, you won't regret it." - Examiner.com.
