Tonight, Thursday April 7th at 6:30 pm, in conjunction with Deborah Oropallo's "Tale Spin" exhibition at Gallery 16, the gallery will host a special performance by dance, theater, and drag artist Fauxnique followed by a conversation between Oropallo and local author and critic Glen Helfand.

"Tale Spin" runs through April 30 at Gallery 16; the works in "Tale Spin," several of which incorporate elements printed at Magnolia Editions, find Oropallo drawing from traditional fairy tales to explore themes of fear, fantasy, and eroticism.
