Weekend Arts Agenda: The Letters Festival November 06 2014
The Letters Festival is returning for its second year at the Goat Farm, with a kick-off on Thurs., at 7 p.m. (at BURNAWAY), and continuing through Sat., Nov. 8. Here's what we had to say about its debut in 2013: "The people who created the Letters Festival are very passionate about books and authors and readers. They are also a little terrified. Festivals require money and participants. First-time festivals require an extra infusion of good will and publicity." Looks like they got enough of both. (Buy tickets here.)

Bill Lowe Gallery opens two exhibits on Friday night: Ed Nash's Transcience and Susannah Zucker's Avian — the former a collection of new two-dimensional works; the latter, lifesize (and sometimes lifelike) ceramic sculptures. With opening receptions from 6-9 p.m.
PSA: Sandler Hudson is turning 25 — with drinks, dancing, the like — and, simultaneously, will open Mario Petrirena's in the remembering with an opening reception from 7-9 p.m.
Jane Garver will open a new solo exhibit, Floor Plans on Napkins, at MINT. Garver's work is "is a culmination of collaborative soundwalks" created at Iceland's Fljótstunga Residency earlier this year. According to the gallery, it's both a performance and a sound composition, incorporating "spoken visual imagery," and was created using two directional microphones (one for dialogue and one for sounds). The result aims to be both absorbing and meditative. With an opening reception from 8-11 p.m.
On Sunday night, CL building neighbor C4 will host Autumn + Art, a mixer — plus conversation, plus snacks — benefiting its mission to connect local artists with local resources. From 4-6:30 p.m. at the Fuse Arts Center. RSVP here.
