Start the day at the Sparrow Gallery! This R Street gallery plays host to the pocket-sized works of Robert-Jean Ray in “Exploring Possibilities.” Ray says the scale of his work allows him to store his artwork in small tins and cigar boxes and to create spontaneously, anywhere from in a café, at the library, or on a train. This retrospective contains his observations over 30 years, focusing on urban environments and human plight.
Right down the street sits the Axis Gallery who plays host to an exhibition from Oakland’s GearBox Gallery this month for “Switching Gears.” The contemporary art gallery in Oakland hosts Axis’s work, in turn! Artists featured include Tamera Avery, Irene Nelson, and TaVee McAllister Lee.
Since you’re in the neighborhood, you can’t go wrong with Iron Horse Tavern especially during Dine Downtown! Access a special three-course meal off the eatery’s inspired menu for $35. Book your table in advance here.
Aptly named “Introductions,” the Archival Gallery in East Sacramento is hosting a group show featuring four new gallery artists. Works include collage, fabric, watercolor, pastel, and this one pictured below!
How could one go wrong with a musical murder mystery that claims to “put the laughter in manslaughter?” In this two-man play, one actor plays investigator while the other plays every single zany suspect present during a surprise birthday party for the victim. Oh, and both play the piano. The Sacramento Theatre Company rounds out a great 2nd Saturday with Murder For Two.
