Our Artist-In-Residence program begins in just a few days and we'd like to introduce you to the newest members of our family. First up is André Terrel Jackson, visual artist and writer, currently based in Trenton, New Jersey. Jackson received a BA from Albright College and an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design. The artist uses language to center the voices and images of blackness. Mining personal history, André is able to use poetry, weaving, sculpture and apparel to investigate intersecting identities. The mixing, and juxtaposing, of materials lend humor and beauty to often harsh realities. Jackson recently presented the paper “Self Identification Through Intersectionality” at the Textile Society of America 16th Biennial Symposium in Vancouver, Canada. Bylines include Efniks.com. Recent exhibitions include The Freedman Gallery (Reading, PA) and Artworks (Trenton, NJ). Follow @andreterreljackson and please say hello to your new creative neighbor ❤️

The Bolshoi Ballet is always en pointe. Don’t miss the classic rendition of The Sleeping Beauty on the beautiful big screen from this world renowned Russian dance company founded in 1776. On her sixteenth birthday, Princess Aurora falls under the curse of the Evil Fairy Carabosse and into a deep slumber lasting one hundred years - only the kiss of a prince can break the spell. A resplendent fairytale ballet, The Sleeping Beauty features scores of magical characters including fairies, Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, and a beautiful young Princess Aurora performed by Olga Smirnova, a “truly extraordinary talent” (The Telegraph). The fairy tale begins this Friday at 7pm so get your tickets now at guildhall.org

Join us on an immersive journey through the life, works and struggles of the Italian master Michelangelo Merisi di Caravaggio. Roberto Longhi, a Caravaggio expert, explores the artist's masterpieces and how they mirror his personal experiences both physical and emotional. These evocative moments — thanks to the use of light and cinematic techniques — allow you to go deep inside the mind and soul of Caravaggio, empathizing with his impulses and fears. Caravaggio: The Soul and The Blood screens tomorrow, March 29 at 7pm - get your tickets now at guildhall.org

We begin every Game Night with Happy Salmon and as you can see it’s a lot of fun! Tonight at 6pm Game Master Noah Salaway leads us through this month’s game. “Monikers is pretty simple: get your friends to guess the name on the card. Each team has 60 seconds to get through as many weird names as they can. In the first round, you can say anything you want but the card name. In the second, you can only use one word. And in the third, you can’t say anything at all - just charades. The same cards are used in each round, so by the end of the game, you’ve made a bunch of hilarious jokes together.” Don’t miss this hysterical night of fun for ages 17 and up with free snacks by @cavaniolasgourmetand your first free drink courtesy of @montaukbrewco 😎 Proudly sponsored by @rima.ryan.team The Rima + Ryan Team @douglaselliman ❤️ Tickets at guildhall.org

Learn more about the life, works, and struggles of the Italian master at our screening of Caravaggio: The Soul and The Blood next Friday, March 29 at 7pm.
