ONE DAY + THREE EVENTS = EXTRAORDINARY ART @ THE BEMIS CENTER & bemisUNDERGROUND

Days are shorter in winter, but on Saturday, January 19th, a triple roster of events made for a day long of extraordinary art experiences. First, Open Studios brought art lovers in from the cold to visit with Artists-in-Residence in their studios and learn about their creative processes. At 8:00, resident Jamie O�Shea joined the crowds in the �future� as he returned to the here & now following almost three weeks of living a thirty-six hour day. Longer sleep cycles and lack of human contact made Jamie happy to return to the present, but provided everyone with some fascinating insights into how we perceive and experience time. And last but no way least, Tugboat Presents showcased a one-night-only exhibition in the bemisUNDERGROUND that featured visual art created by musicians. Proving that good things really do come in threes, bands Flowers Forever, Coyote Bones and 4th of July played to the eclectic crowd, bringing a phenomenal end to the Three Saturdays Art Series. And if you missed all this, don�t worry. All these events kicked off the upcoming season in the bemisUNDERGROUND, where cutting-edge art will show throughout 2008!
