Event Details

Join us on the rooftop at Lillstreet Art Center Thursday, June 21, 2012 for a rare summer Salon featuring the multi-diciplinary work of sculptor Allison Wade and a BBQ by the ever-inventive X-marx.

Comprising multiple materials, techniques, colors and textures, Allison Wade's seemingly delicate pieces work through formal concerns and private editorial processes to arrive at their final structure. Displayed together in a room, Wade's pieces invite a broader reconsideration of space, boundary and gravity that speaks to, in her words, "hope as well as physics."

That "room" is the rooftop of Lillstreet Art Center and that reconsideration will be had by 40 of us as we discuss Wade's work over casual BBQ by the ever-inventive, always delicious X-marx.


  • Roasted Slagel Farms pork loin with Rhubarb and lavender.
  • Selection of bright early summer salads.
  • Buttermilk strawberry "shortcake" with anise, hyssop and Sicilian lemon curd.

As befits a summer BBQ service, seating and everything else is strictly casual. Wines by Vinejoy and beers by 5 Rabbit will be available for tasting.



7:00 - 7:30PM: Champagne aperitif reception

7:30 - 7:45PM: Introductions by JC Steinbrunner, Allison Wade and Abraham Conlon

7:45 - c. 9:30PM: Discussion and dinner cycle until we are full and out of things to say


The Lillstreet Art Center gallery on the ground floor will also stay open for browsing during the reception period from 7-7:30.


NOTE: At this time the rooftop is not handicapped-accessible. Rooftop is accessed by a steep stairway from the third floor. Ticket proceeds are used to purchase food, amenities and other event overhead, therefore all ticket sales are non-refundable.
