April 15 – May 20

CardCoverDraft Intertemporalist Steampunk Exhibit Today’s “Steampunk” cultural aesthetic draws from the parallel social angst of early industrializing 19th Century’s ‘awe struck’ impact of the overwhelming power of stream-driven technologies, and 21st Century overwhelming digital-internet revolution impacting us today. Steampunk’s sensibilities are constantly evolving, with adaptations through all the arts.

Carnival Ball_Poster-2

GasLight Circus

Tickets: $12 available at door
Door opens at 8. Show starts promptly at 9 p.m.
An all ages show.
“Be cordially invited to The Carnival Ball! An event for the ages that rolls through your town only one night a year! Come lose yourself in the lights and sounds of The Carnival, and find where you belong amidst the musical and circus talent in a show so big that a single stage can barely contain it!”

Witness The GasLight Circus’ brightest and most talented stars put on a theatrical circus spectacle featuring juggling, acrobatics, belly dancing, sideshow, clowning, comedy, and live music as they tell the story of a man who leaves his ordinary life behind and finds himself at the heart of a mysterious carnival, looking to find his place amidst the stars that travel with it, as well as his place within his own heart.

The show will feature a full theatrical circus performance by The GasLight Circus full of juggling, sideshow comedy, singing, dancing, and more. There will be carnival games, live music, prizes, raffles, an appearance by Tempe Arizona’s Flow Shop, and more to be announced!

Most importantly, all proceeds that The GasLight Circus makes at their biggest show of the year will be donated to the “Arizona Veterans Helping Veterans” charity foundation, which raises funds to establish community outreach centers in the form of veteran-based coffee shops as apart of “Operation Veteran Prosperity”.

Come and see your favorite GasLight Circus performers old and new as we work to raise money for the AZVHV! See with your eyes, hear with your ears, and give with your heart at the Carnival Ball!

  1. What Empty Nesters do at Easter.
    I got a great lesson, Sunday, in how other people cope with empty nests. In this first year of 25 that I’ve had neither husband nor kids at home, holidays have been ….difficult. This Easter, it was my privilege to participate in a “Magnum Opus” by chef and architect, Dana Johnson.
    8 guests, 8 courses, 4 hours.
    4 desserts.
    After the 3rd course, the salad (more like a Theme Park), we had to have a break and walk around.
    Susie spent quality time with BunBabe, the Real Easter Bunny. Eli gave impromptu massages. Dave got ice slipped down his shirt (on purpose) and au jus from the crown roast (by accident). Crystal wore an outrageous retro outfit complete with carnation hat and red fur purse. (the matching red fur muff had disintegrated). It’s the first time I ever heard Brian wax poetic! Carol and I discovered a mutual passion for egg painting and the pre-Raphaelite brotherhood. Sandra talked about palate cleansers, Kim twinkled at the foot of the table, and we all needed coffee and chocolate to fend off a food coma.
    After the creme de cassis and vanilla cordials, the ice cream sandwiches made with rock sugared egg cookies, and the giant blueberry and cherry cream cheese cake tart, we just stared at dessert number 4. So the poor little Sacrificial lamb cake (red velvet with secret frosting) got beheaded, and a piece sent home with each guest. Reverently, for breakfast.
    Dana has a waiting list of adopted family and friends, willing to sell their firstborns for a place at his table. It is rare to be invited to an event like this. I ‘m privileged not only to have had the experience, but also to have learned a truism:
    You create a temporary family from whomever happens to be there – and a memorable feast celebrates the adoption.
    Very clever, those Alwun House boys.

    I love this place haven’t been there in years but exotic art shows and parties are some the best I’ve ever been to,, Great Fun open minded People,,,A+++

  3. We just held an event at the Alwun house 1/17/14 for Gabriel’s Angels and the Gabriel’s Angels Board of Young Professionals and overall we couldn’t be any happier with the result. Dana and Kim were great to work with and our plan is to make this an annual event at this location. Overall just an awesome experience and a great venue. Thanks again Dana and Kim for a spectacular night!


  4. Happy Exotic Art Show, you amazing Phoenix heartbeats!!! This achievement is truly Awesome!!! I get goosebumps thinking about the first day the art begins to arrive, and the bright allure that the buzzing vibrations bring to downtown. The House has been a sanctuary for so many, a support for art-lovers of all ages and backgrounds, and a beating heart for the Phoenix arts community.
    Thank you thank you thank yooooooo!

  6. Lighthouse artist, Baron Dixon review: Well, this last Friday’s “Lighthouse!” exhibit opening was, in my opinion, the best one yet! Artistic inventiveness was on full display (and WILL be all through December as the show will be lit up for evening viewing hours) in this truly multimedia experience. And the only thing that could distract us all from the pretty lights was the BAND on stage, the Haymarket Squares. They played three sets, and at the end unplugged themselves from their amplifiers, and roused us with a couple of songs amongst us, the audience. They are awesome singer/songwriters with lyrics in their original songs worthy of the Broadway stage, like the anthem, “Buy My Vote.”

  7. Pleasure being part of the Exotic Show experience these last couple of years.

    Thanks all visitors for the Viewers Choice Award!
