The lease is up at the Bogard Street Gallery, and to celebrate, owners/husband-and-wife Scott Debus and Janine McCabe are throwing what looks to be one of the best non-Spoleto parties of the season. The one-night-only show, Unaffected Truth, represents a number of Bogard Street Gallery regulars and some the funnest out-of-the-box artists in town, including Johnny Pundt, Sharen Mitchell, Julio Cotto, Phillip Hyman, Seth Corts, Jarod Charzewski, graffiti-master Ishmael, Jeremy Hogan, and Debus himself. The show honors "artists unconcerned with the commerciality of art," and in keeping with the spirit, live music will be provided on Friday night by Omniolgy — the nom de plume of composer Michael Lucas, who will keep things buzzing with a wild variety of tunes. Debus mentions that he and his wife will be spending some time in New York, but they'll be back in a few months to search for another home for the Bogard Street Gallery, although he mentions that "Bogard Street has been an exceptional experience, so it will be difficult to find a space as wonderful."

Established in Aug. 2000, this group brings people of all backgrounds together to honor the living history of the African-American tradition.

The New Music Collective, Ray Evanoff, and the Redux Contemporary Art Center present Exquisite Corpse, an evening of community-minded artwork and music. And what, you ask, is an exquisite corpse? Invented during the Surrealist movement, it's a method of collecting and assembling words or images from different collaborators. Everyone adds to the composition by following a rule or by being allowed to see only the end of what was previously contributed. With this in mind, Redux held an open call for artwork to be exhibited and Ray Evanoff, a local composer and musician, organized his work in combination with seven other composers' individual works. The musicians' final single product will be performed for the first time on opening night. Be there for the reveal of these unique collaborations. FRIDAY
