Two events this Saturday at Artspace in New Haven:

We Are Pleased to Inform You

We Are Pleased To Inform You is a Saturday grant writing workshop from 12—3 p.m. The workshop will be led by guest artist, Brainard Carey. Carey has exhibited in the Whitney Biennial and numerous solo museum shows and is the co-founder of the art collective known as Praxis, which he created with his wife Delia Bajo.

Praxis is an internationally acclaimed art collaborative whose works have been featured in the Whitney Biennial, MOMA, PS 1, The Reina Sofia, and most recently in a solo show at The Whitney Museum. Currently Praxis has several traveling shows in progress. Carey also works as a career coach and mentor to artists.

Artspace is pleased to invite Carey to speak about his professional practice, his extensive research in the grant-writing field, current trends in the art market, and his own artist consultation business. The three-hour workshop will reveal the diverse approaches to guide artists in their own pursuits and refine their written materials. The workshop will cover a broad spectrum of topics from how to understand arts organizations and their staff to customizing application packages to submit to galleries, museums, and foundations.

For additional information, please contact Laura Marsh, Communications and Program Director: lauralmarsh [AT] This Artspace workshop is $30; the proceeds of your order will help to fund a workshop series in 2011. Please reserve your seat today:

Just got out of a Bad Romance? Can't get off the Telephone? Well, put on your Poker Face, play the Love Game, and Just Dance at Artspace Underground on Saturday, Apr. 17, 2010, from 8—11 p.m.! Think you can wear those McQueen platforms better than the Lady, herself? Then walk, walk, fashion baby because the most inspired Gaga look will win a gift certificate from 116 Crown! Try your best, but dress to impress.

Or, if Gaga isn't your thing, no big, we've got two bands and a multi-media puppet show performance right up your alley. SHARK, a three-piece ethereal rock band from both New Haven and Boston, are, according to The New Haven Advocate, great candidates "for listening in the car late at night or putting on the headphones and drifting off to wherever you want to go." Drift over to Artspace for Saint Bernadette, a five-piece erotically-charged aural accord that meshes a disparate template of psychadelic-meets-arena rock with a peppering of jazz and candy-coated sing-along choruses. Kamikaze puppeteer Kim Mikenis promises to tickle your senses with her unique and always original live performance pieces.

So there you have it, SHARK and Saint Bernadette will get you woozy, Kim Mikenis will perform a doozy, and DJ Sofia Cavallo will keep you schmoozy. If you arrive between 8 and 9 pm, get in for $2 with your school I.D. After 9 pm, $5 admission includes free spiked-punch until it's gone. $6 drinks from 116 Crown. Be there or be square.
