Urban hiking, architectural photography, graffiti, and transgressive film—if any of these interests sound appealing, there’s an event for you this weekend or in the week ahead.
The Cinema of Transgression
Whitespace runs its final underground film screening, featuring the black humor and notorious eroticism of filmmakers Richard Kern and Nick Zedd. More from Whitespace:
Convulsive, controversial and strictly over-the-top, the works of both Richard Kern and Nick Zedd have long been considered the sine qua non of in-your-face film making. Not for the faint of heart nor weak of stomach, this is film for connoisseurs of the dank and the dangerous. Frankly and stankly erotical.
The screening starts at 9PM tonight, Fri. April 10 at Whitespace Gallery.
EMILY AMY GALLERY
Paint as Subject group show
Featuring work by Dorothy Goode, James Leonard, Melanie Parke, and Carl Plansky, this exhibition meditates on the medium of paint as such:
By studying their application, manipulation, and removal of paint from the canvas with brushes, trowels, palette knives and other tools, it is clear that each of the artists featured in this upcoming show value the importance of paint. In fact, it becomes what the painting is all about.
The opening reception is from 7-10PM at Emily Amy Gallery, and the exhibition continues through May 6.
Vishnu: New works by SAINT
In what may become a continuing graphic novel, SAINT’s “Vishnu” drawings will be on display from 7PM-close at Kavarna coffee bar.

The show continues through May 3.
