Do It This Weekend

Prolific local artist John Gurbacs presents a solo exhibition of new paintings at Salt Creek Artworks in St. Petersburg. The opening reception is held from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight. On display Nov. 14-Dec. 20, free admission. Pictured at right by Gurbacs: "Speak No Evil."

Rich-voiced Miami Beach songstress Rachel Goodrich — who plays guitar, ukulele, kazoo, banjo, autoharp, tamborine and whatever else tickles her fancy — brings her whimsical, clever (dare I say folkabilly?) stylings to New World Brewery. Also on the bill are Christina Wagner, Ryan Wendell Bauer, The Junkyard Kings, and The Turncoat. Fri., Nov. 14, 9 p.m., $7.

The second in the Studio @ 620's Salon de Danse features Andee Scott, an Austin, Texas-based dancer who performs solos numbers created by choreographers from Italy, South Korea, New York City and Mexico. Sat., Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m., $15 general/$10 students and seniors.

I just saw a show last night where all these glass artists were blowing glass competitively, Dale Chihuly overseeing it all like some sort of oversized neo-pirate. Cool stuff, especially the end result, like much of what's up at The Arts Center in Glorious Glass: Transluscent and Opaque. The new exhibit spotlights a few dozen glass artists, many from Seattle and Chihuly included. The exhibit opens tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14-Dec. 24, St. Petersburg, free admission.

Wanna learn a little something about growing organic? Local experts on the subject at Sweetwater Organic Community Farm present a hands-on workshop, "Organic Gardening 101," that covers all the somethings you need to know. Make sure to bring a bucket if you plan to drop in as all participants will take home some farm-fresh compost. Sat., Nov. 15, 2-5 p.m., $30-$45 suggested donation.
