Erik Barnes has been delighting patrons of the Library Bar for more than 15 years, including notables like Bobby Short, Alanis Morissette, Gregory Hines, John Mayer, the Electric Light Orchestra and back-up singers for Gladys Knight. Whether it’s romantic ballads “when love is in the air” or upbeat tunes for business types who need to decompress, Erik says “the room isn’t about me, it’s about the people who inhabit it.” Nevertheless, the Library Bar wouldn’t be the same without its main man. Erik holds degrees from Yale College (B.A.), Washington State University (M.A.), and he conducted doctoral studies at the University of North Texas. He has performed concerts in many of the major cities and played with four orchestras.

My Sister in This House Pay-what-You-can Preview

WingSpan_My_Sister_in_this_House_2__t520

8pm @ The Bath House Cultural Center

My Sister in This House, which often echoes Jean Genet’s The Maids, is based on an actual incident that took place in the French town of Le Mans, France in the early 1930s. It centers on the lives of Christine and Lea, two servant sisters attached to the Danzard household. The Danzards’, mother and daughter, are models of petit bourgeois idleness and severity. While suffocating under the weight of the Danzards’ authority and the rigid lines of class distinction, Christine and Lea have only each other to cling to. This pressure cooker atmosphere – part psychological study and part thriller – results in a haunting and stunning emotional explosion.

Please join the Young Artist Association of Dallas for a fun night of wine and art to benefit The Stewpot of Dallas.

On display will be the paintings of Edgar Cardoze and Page Goss, and the photographs of Christina Kearney, Stuart Palley, Jordan Chlapecka, and myself. Free hors d’oeuvres and half-priced wine during the first hour.

80% of the proceeds will benefit the art program at The Stewpot, which after volunteering for, I can say is a remarkable program that can change lives. For 6 hours, 3 days of week, The Stewpot opens its doors to the homeless community of Dallas to provide free art classes to whoever wishes to participate. These art classes act as a form of therapy, and provide the opportunity to work for an income. Each participant has the choice of his/her personal medium–whether it be from acrylics to oils to jewelry making. Then, the artist can choose to put the artwork up for sale at The Stewpot, with 90% of the proceeds given to that artist. This creates an exciting environment filled with creativity, inspiration, and hope. Our goal is to sell our artwork to raise as much money as possible to provide the program with more freedom and the ability to continue to make such a positive impact on the Dallas community.

Everyday Practice of Science: Where Intuition and Passion Meet Objectivity and Logic -Dallas Philosopher’s Forum

7:30pm @ Chic from Barcelona – $4

Fred Grinnell, Ph.D., Professor of Cell Biology and Founder of the Program in Ethics and Science, UT Southwestern Medical Center. Author of The Scientific Attitude.

Scientific facts often are so complicated that only experts can appreciate the details. However, the underlying practice that gives rise to such facts should be understandable by everyone interested in science. In my new book Everyday Practice of Science, I offer a plain-talk account and demystification of science as world view and life’s work. I describe how researchers bring their own interests and passions to their work. The interplay between these interests and passions becomes the dynamic of the research community. Exploring this dynamic clarifies the philosophical underpinnings and challenges inherent to the scientific knowledge-building project.
