Trickhouse Live is an integrative arts series that brings together people working with words, images, sounds, videos, and a variety of performances. The series serves as a venue for visiting artists to interact with local artists and for the borders between genres and mediums to be permeable. Trickhouse Live is a physical world extension of the online cross-genre arts journal, Trickhouse.org which is based in Tucson.
Lauryn Bianco would live her life to a soundtrack of music from the 70s and 90s if it were possible. This bio, in fact, should be read to the tune of Salt-n-Pepa’s “Shoop” or any track recorded by Queen. She is obsessed with all things camp and kitsch, most notably, Karen Carpenter, glitter, Calamity Jane, Fire Island, Laugh-In, Todd Haynes, Mommie Dearest, patterned tights and Alexander McQueen. Lauryn is a displaced New Yorker – which you might not notice until you’re in a vehicle with her – who loves Tucson’s charm, grit, and artistic community. Behavioral health program development and grant writing pays the bills, but Lauryn would much rather swing on a trapeze at ZUZI, where she dances as a company member. Lauryn holds a bachelor’s degree in English from SUNY Fredonia, a master’s degree in Gender and Women’s studies from the University of Arizona, and a black belt in femme fatale from an undisclosed credentialing agency.
Andy Burgess is a London born painter, collage artist and sometime photographer currently searching for a meaningful body of water in the hot and dusty desert that is Tucson. Andy is known for panoramic cityscape paintings, renditions of modernist architecture and elaborate mosaic-like collages made from vintage ephemera collected over many years. He describes these as “Pop Geometry”. Represented by galleries on both sides of the pond, Andy’s work can be seen at many International Art Fairs. In January he will have his first museum show at The U of A Museum of Art.
