Arts Briefs: Human Statues, Lorne Elliott part of TRU series

The Human Statues are far more than their name suggests. The B.C. folk/pop/rock duo returns to Kamloops Thursday, Sept. 22 to open the free TRU Cultural Events series at Alumni Theatre.

Jeff Bryant and Zach Stevenson have been described as a cross between Flight of the Conchords and Simon and Garfunkel. They promise an hour of joyful music, humour and harmonies.

The concert series usually runs every third Thursday of the month from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Other concerts scheduled: The Abrams Brothers, Oct. 13; Trio Hochelaga, Nov. 17; Pentaendre, Jan. 12; Watasun, Feb. 16; and comedian Lorne Elliott, March 15.

Printmakers hold open house

The Kamloops Printmakers Society hosts a show and sale of members' artwork Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24-25, noon-4 p.m.

Formed four years ago, the nonprofit co-operative operates a studio at 102B - 925 McMaster Way, just off McGill Road at the Old Dutch warehouse. The society is the only studio of its kind in the B.C. Interior. Most members are graduates of the TRU bachelor of fine arts program. New members are welcome. They also offer a Friend of the Society membership to non-printmakers, entitling bearers to four original prints per year.

The public is invited to attend the annual studio show and sale, which will include etchings, relief prints and screen prints.
