On October 29th through 31st 2015 in Detroit comes the 8th annual assemblage of extraordinary artists from across this world to display their most introspective creations:

DAMNED – An Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness

From the infamous to the freshest of local and international talent, this prodigious congregation will allow us a glimpse within the diverse shadows of id and ego…of overall mind and encompassing soul guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, inspire or repulse. Rising from within the ashes of Detroit’s historic institution of Devil’s Night, this is not Halloween-themed art but an immersion within the immeasurable realms of consciousness through an elegant ambiance of live ethereal music and cirque/butoh-inspired performances.

There are 3 nights of DAMNED, each with its own distinct theme for the ambiance and performances that flourish within the exhibition:

– Thu 10/29 “The Darkness” – A night of introspective exploration within the shadowed and primal essence of self. This opening night features an intimate VIP Preview/Artist Reception, a formal absinthe tasting, an on-site chef preparing hot hors d’œuvres and experimental aerial and butoh-inspired performances.

– Fri 10/30 “The Enlightenment” – A night of the extrospective self enlightened through light, fire and the ethereal. This gala night features a VIP sampling of internationally-inspired tapas with with paired libations and exotic fire performances.

– Sat 11/31 “The Masquerade” – A festive celebration through a menagerie of exotic cirque, sensual rhythms and masquerade. This closing night features the formal mask-mandatory Masquerade Ball, an elegant seated 6-course aphrodisiac-inspired dinner, sensuous dance performance interludes, the aural ambiance of DJ Mikey and DJ Zumby from Strangeways Radio with DJ Slofu from Happy Endings and a menagerie of strolling cirque performances all night.

All nights feature a sensually lush VIP Mezzanine with live televised performance simulcasts all night, the gallery store to purchase a diversity of art and merchandise, our lovely Devil Girl hostesses and, of course, the art.

‘Satori Circus Theater Series’ : The Unveiling, by Brett J Lawrence

Introducing the unveiling of the ‘Satori Circus Theater Series’ Photography Project which I have been working on for the past 4 years. This will be the first time all these images will be displayed together in their entirety.

These images will be on display at the Klemm Gallery at Siena Heights University in Adrian, MI, during the ‘2015 Alumni Exhibition’ from October 1 – 29, 2015.

The Artists’ Reception takes place on October 16th, 2015 from 6-8pm in the Gallery.

Entrance to Klemm Gallery is FREE; food and drink reception is a ticketed event on the second floor. Please contact the Alumni Office to purchase your ticket ($12): +1 517 264 7143 or email at alumni@sienaheights.edu. AGAIN, YOU CAN COME SEE THE ART FOR FREE, BUT THE FANCY HORS D’OEUVRES AND DRINKS ARE TICKETED AND LOCATED ON THE SECOND LEVEL OF THE STUDIO.

All images are 8×12″ in size, floated on a 16×20″ Fuji Deep Matte archival print, framed, signed and dated. Each print is priced at $125.00, and may be purchased prior to the Exhibition. The complete set of 15 framed prints may be purchased in its entirety. All pre-purchased prints will be displayed as “From the private collection of “your name” during the Exhibition. Each print may also be purchased unframed, as well.(Please contact me privately for price.)

Originally conceived over a few drinks with my dear friend, Satori Circus, this project was able to come to fruition with the combined efforts of a variety of very open-minded individuals who understood my vision and were willing to allow access to these beautiful venues. To those individuals, I thank you. I couldn’t be more proud of these results.
