Katherine Fahey’s Crankies at the Greenbelt Community Center, Oct 7

Katherine Fahey presents Crankies

Katherine Fahey will present a series of intimate, table-top shadow puppet shows. Fahey creates exquisite, narrative “crankies” – backlit, hand-cranked panoramas with cut paper imagery combined with live-animated shadow puppets and music. The program will open with a visualization of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and a childhood memory of Baltimore’s arabber produce vendors and their colorful horse-drawn carts. Additional pieces will include a remembrance of the artist’s father and his love of birds, and two ghost stories to kick off the Halloween season.

Performance at 3pm.
Studio open house and sale, 1-4pm, with the Community Center’s Artists in Residence.
