Marigny memoriam

Posted By on Fri, Oct 8, 2010 at 5:58 PM

An appropriate theme for this upcoming art show might be (to paraphrase Faulkner): "Our departed loved ones are never dead. They aren't even departed." The Skull Club (1003. N. Spain St.), an alternative gallery in the Marigny, pays full-on homage to the dead with its Resurrection and Remembrance art show at 9 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 9. Created by performance artist Andrea Duhe and Skull Club proprietor Lord David, the 21+ show features an altar, art by Molly McGuire, Mattie Stillwell, Mardi Claw, Valery Milovic and others, and live music by Ratty Scurvics and Doc Otis.

Duhe says she conceived of the show as a way to honor her best friend, artist and costume designer Noah Vasilchek, who died last year at age 33 of complications arising from Marfan syndrome. "Noah was one of the best artists I have ever seen," Duhe says. "He was a genius and a true inspiration to me. Why not show people a glimpse of Noah through art dedicated to him? And why not allow other artists to do the same with their loved ones on the other side?"
