Mannish, a solo exhibition by NYC visual artist and costume designer Thom Heyer, will open with a reception on Friday, January 18th at 6pm and remain on display through January 31st.
The evening will also feature a performance from Lexington based ensemble EnVaGe, accompanied by dancers from the Lexington Ballet.
Heyer’s work explores and questions notions of gender and sexuality through religious imagery and iconography, heavily influenced by Byzantine and Haitian Voodoo art of the saints.
EnVaGe is a variable geometry ensemble dedicated to championing repertoire from both the standard practice and contemporary fields of Western art music. For this performance EnVaGe will be performing works by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzola, joined by dancers from the Lexington Ballet under the direction of Artistic Director Luis Dominguez.
Those who arrive early for the reception can attend the performance free of charge, admission after 7pm will be $10.
