You are invited to an evening of rites of passage, rituals of affliction, communal feasting, art-magic, and dancing yourself clean. January 14 is an evening on the cusp–between the old year and the new, between a full moon in Cancer and a day of inauguration and outcry. Join us as we mark this transit with a subdued Saturnalia at Open House Contemporary. We’ll treat you to cocktails by Jonathan Sommer of B!TCH3Z Drinking Project, ten courses of heavy hor d’oeuvres from Chef Cesar Medina-Maldonado, performances, artist-made talismans, self-care, and acts of cathartic release.

About Open House Contemporary:
Open House Contemporary offers a unique vision on the role of art in the life of the viewer, home, city and the community. By bringing together a diverse collection of contemporary artworks in residential settings, OHC places art front and center in our lives, while at the same time recognizing that art can be just as compelling in a living room as in a gallery.
Believing artistic expression to be a powerful opportunity for communication, connection and change, founders Matthew Kellen and Britt Skaathun formed Open House Contemporary with the idea that this venture would provide a platform, with art at its core, to reach out and connect with our communities in creative and compelling ways. ohc-gallery.com
