The Art of Uli : “I’m not a quitter, I’m still learning,” says Uli Rossier, a captivating ink and oil pastel impressionist, and happily Nina Haggerty’s 2021 Artist of the Year. Look at her art, and you can get blissfully lost in all those lines and colours. The gallery’s Janice Easton notes, “We normally celebrate our Artist of the Year with a huge party in February, but we’ve had to postpone it again and again due to COVID. We decided to just put it up before the year ended and have a small gathering for Uli’s family and close friends — but we’d still love for more people to see it!” You have been summoned!

Ms. Pat : The Degenerates and The Cabin with Bert Kreischer on Netflix, as well as Comedy Central’s This Is Not Happening all have one thing in common: Atlanta-born comedian Ms. Pat, born to a single mother of five, Ms. Pat learned early on she would have to fend for herself in this world, at one point dealing drugs under the name Rabbit. But luckily she escaped the streets and is now a tough-as-nail comedian, here for a run at Rick Bronson’s venue in the awesome sprawl mall.

Belladonna of Sadness (1973) : Screening as part of Not Your Final Girl Film Series, a peasant woman is assaulted by the local lord on her wedding night. To take revenge, she makes a pact with the Devil himself who appears as an erotic sprite and transforms her into a black-robed vision of madness and desire.
