PALMDALE – Local residents are invited to celebrate Black History Month with two special events in February at the Palmdale Playhouse, located at 38334 10th Street East.
Art exhibit reception
Expansion: Exploring Evolution and Expansion Through Hair, by artist Ashley Khan, opens Thursday, Feb. 2, with a complimentary reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. No reservations are required, and light refreshments will be served.
Ashley Khan is a multidisciplinary artist exploring art within illustration, hand lettering, fiber arts, and wardrobe design. In this exhibit, she focuses on “expansion” — always building to develop and matriculate into greater creative works. Her exhibition will be on display through Feb. 28. Additional viewing opportunities can be scheduled by calling 661-267-5684.
Dance, Music, Paint, Poetry, and Peace: Celebrating Community through Creativity will start at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Palmdale Playhouse.
Mosaic Performances will be hosted by poetry and spoken word artist, author, and actor Sean Hill. The evening also will include a dance and music performance from Got Rhythm!, based on the indigenous American art form of rhythm tap dance. The evening will conclude with a meet and greet with Sean Hill and Ashley Khan.
This event is complimentary, but reservations are required and available on a first-come, first-served basis (limit four patrons per reservation). Once a reservation is made, an email confirmation will be sent to the email address provided and serves as the event entry ticket. To register, visit: https://www.palmdaleplayhouse.com/f/18 .
