The event creator says
Did you know the Rep gives local professional artists space to display and sell their work, commission free in our Gilda Lobby Gallery? Every play on the Rep stage means a different artist in the Gallery. We also give them a Champagne Reception on a night when the Theatre does not have a production on the stage.

The artist in the Gallery during DEVIL DOG SIX is K. Guillory.

Meet her and the Curator, Jocelyn Rainey, Tuesday, April 26 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm and have a glass of Champagne as you learn about the art and the artist.

The Champagne Reception for the Artist is always free and open to the Public.
See below for more information about Ms. Guillory and SEE YOU AT THE REP!

"In K. Guillory's artwork, you're given a glimpse of how society views the modern female through the wide yet shallow lens of the world wide web. "It's a reflection on women, the Internet and how relationships have changed," says Guillory, a 33-year-old artist with roots in Houston and Detroit. "I'm hoping the audience thinks about how women interact with the Internet and it's ability to promote feminism and a positive self-image of black women to empower themselves." Guillory is a writer, graphic artist and founder of the Ashur Collective, an all-female comic company based in the Grand River Creative Corridor."

K. Guillory is a controversial author, painter, graphic designer, and comic publisher. She is part of Ashur Collective, with whom she has published eight previous books and anthologies, including Blood Money: the Road to Detroit, Bartkira Volume 4, and Love In All Forms: The Big Book of Growing Up Queer.

About the Rep -
The oldest professional (Union) non-profit theatre
in the State of Michigan, the Detroit Repertory Theatre's mission is guided by the belief that the sense of community
is stronger than the forces that splinter and that efforts to preserve unity deserve the same attention and support as the justly cultivated efforts to retain diversity. The implicit goal in all the theatre's efforts is to produce the best possible professional theatre while fostering cultural democratization of the arts, and fighting by example, the disturbing level of racism that still exists.


Detroit Repertory Theatre is located in the geographical heart of the city at 13103 Woodrow Wilson, Detroit, MI 48238
Parking is Attended, Lighted, Fenced-In and Free.
