The Center for Arts at the Armory is proud to present and host a series of festive and culturally-thematic events for Halloweek 2022. Headlining the week is a concert by Wesli on Oct. 27, the first event in Arts at the Armory’s newly announced Spotlight Series.
In addition to the above, Arts at the Armory is co-presenting with ONCE a screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show with a Live Cast (the Teseracte Players) on Halloween night with doors at 7pm.
Receptions for two thematic visual arts exhibitions in the Armory ROOTED Café will also be taking place during Halloweek. Eliezer Velez’s exhibition features paintings of horror movies and cult classics, and Colette Bresilla, from Haiti, paints the female figure–from Haitian market women with pipes to Japanese geishas. Closing out Halloweek on November 5th will be the annual Banboche event (this year with a Fèt Gede theme) produced by the Cambridge-based Haitian contemporary dance company Jean Appolon Expressions.

Stop by the Armory Cafe to check out our current exhibit, a solo show by local artist Cara Foster Karim. For years, Cara has been using her art to celebrate ordinary neighborhood scenes. She creates her unique paintings with a mix of techniques from traditional oil painting to experimental mixed media collage. Her work explores the beauty and diversity of urban landscapes through color and texture, creating layered cities that represent the diverse people who live in them, create them, and give them meaning.
Closing Reception will be from 2:00pm-3:30pm on Sunday, June 30. Join Armory staff and Cara Foster Karim in the Cafe for light refreshments and to enjoy the final hours of this beautiful solo exhibit.
The exhibit is open to the public during all Cafe open hours!
