Alice In Wonderland Event “Voices in Wonderland”
Dive down the rabbit hole this Saturday for your own foray into wonderland. Whether you’re an avid fan of the latest blockbuster or the books, local artists are bringing new perspectives of the fantasy land that have lately bombarded the billboards.
Voices in Wonderland, an art show turned adult tea party of sorts, will take place March 13th at the Blonde Martini in downtown San Diego. It will feature works by 20 local artists, all inspired by Tim Burton’s latest interpretation of Alice. The works of art that will be featured are a fusion of the worlds described by Lewis Carroll and Tim Burton, interpreted by artists in the form of mixed media, paintings, and film.
The works featured are by San Diego artists Todd Sanders, Tracy Johnson, Matt Lorentz, and True Delorenzo. Also included in the program is the work of Mark Richmond, whose works have been hung in the San Diego International Airport and Harney Sushi in Oceanside, and Los Angeles film artist Gato Blanko.
“Voices,” the last of a series of monthly local art-inspired events, was established in 2009 in an effort to involve the local culture into the Gaslamp. Traditionally held every second Saturday at Onyx, this underground art event has decided to abandon the Saturday night dance crowd in favor of the recently opened Blonde Martini.
Planner Jon Block hopes that the new location will revive success in the “Voices” series, explaining Blonde Martini’s appeal as “a blank slate, (and) that’s the most attractive thing about it. They’ve got that extremely mysterious underground flair which suits our Alice theme so well.”
The $15 cover will include entertainment by circus performers, pop-rock band Stealing Love Jones, beats from DJ Dennis J, an open vodka bar, and hors d’oeuvres until 9pm.
