1 | Political Party Nov. 8

Save the Date! Again!

Put the party back in politics with Elsewhere's third quadrennial election palooza: Political Party hosted by Triad City Beat on Tuesday, November 8th at 8pm.

Follow the returns with persistent punditry and "50 Pies for 50 States" donated by local businesses and neighbors representing the 50 states- we cut them as they call'em! Only $5 at the door.

Elsewhere's 8th Annual Extravaganza featured the Grand Re-Opening of our Living Museum with 3 floors of artworks, music, food, cocktails, and performances. We celebrated Elsewhere’s new era with the wildest art party and it couldn't have happened without some amazing friends.

You can check out the Extravaganza photos on Facebook. #ElsewhereRevolves!

4 | Artist Talks

Look at those beautiful, autumn pumpkins! Our 2016 artist interns are in the photo, too (From left: Poulos, Bartman, Roper, Vogel, and Gallagher. Photo: Luke Hodges).

Join the 2016 fall intern artist as they present their past work and discuss their creative, individual practices. Afterward the presentations, meet the interns and staff for drinks. Only $1 - 5 admission fee and cocktails by donation. RSVP here.

Hannah Bartman (Operations) makes art installations and site-specific work when not searching for ghost towns or trying to find and make friends with the elusive Big Foot

Milo Gallagher (House) loves plants, sewing, reptiles, queer theory, houses (preferably the doll and/or haunted variety), sugar snap peas, and the moon.

Luke Hodges (Media) enjoys painting his toenails, listening to the music of Fiona Apple, and eating pimento cheese.

Benajmin Poulos (Communications) dreams nightly of finding lost zippers under beds and not getting a foot wet after sticking his waterproof shoe in a puddle.

Bailey Roper (Programs) enjoys denim, glitter, crafting, cheese, and a self-composed form of comedy entitled “poop feminism.”

Josie Vogel (Production) is dancing, doing headstands, or petting dogs in all sorts of unexpected locations when not contemplating vertical storage solutions at Elsewhere.

Make sure you also save the date for the October Artists-In-Residence Talks on Saturday, October 22nd from 5-6pm!

5 | Elsewhere In The News

On October 30th, #BlackLivesMatter: Greensboro, the Queer People of Color Collective, and Elsewhere hosted a READ-IN to disrupt racism and heal from the killing of Keith Lamont Scott and the #CharlotteUprising. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro's The Carolinian recapped it; read the article here and see our photos on Facebook.

#MiamiGoesElsewhere artist Matthew Evan Taylor was interviewed for VAN Magazine where he talks about Elsewhere, improvisation, and all things music.
