WATER Exhibition

The 4th Floor

EXHIBITION ON VIEW: May 20th 2024-July 28th 2024

The 4th Floor at the Trinity St Playhouse presents the exhibit Water. This collection features work by nine local Austin artists and explores climate change and its impact on water as a resource using paint, photography, and stained glass. 

Kornyan Bailey, James Dean Jay Byrd, Deke Cameron, Carol Hawkins, Clara Newby, Jac Smith, John Weik, Jonthy Williams, and Steve Williams

On June 8th 2024, 3-5pm we will host a reception for the exhibiting artists. The reception is free and open to the public. 

The reception follows the 2pm performance of Death by Bad Jokes: Stop, Stop You’re Killing Me by jkjk. The dark comedy, presented by Trinity St Players, invites the audience to question their water consumption and to examine one’s personal accountability and complicity in our care for ourselves, each other, and the planet. 

The 4th Floor is the lobby space of the Trinity St Playhouse. The work will be on display May 20th to July 28th on The 4th Floor. The exhibit is available to view by appointment on Tuesdays 11am-4pm, email to plan a visit. Or in the evenings when you attend a performance at the Playhouse.

TICKETS: The artists reception on June 8th is free and open to the public, no RSVP required. It begins at 3pm.

Get ready to laugh your way to the afterlife at Death by Bad Jokes: Stop, Stop, You’re Killing Me by jkjk, a hilarious performance that will leave you gasping for breath.

It’s the mid-2030s, and we find our perfect family enjoying dinner on a perfectly perfect night when a terrible secret is revealed. An unsuspecting party clown is forced to confront their wife about her shady affairs before one more person has to die. Part comedy, part drama, part musical, part absurdist theatre. In a world on edge Death by Bad Jokes asks, are we seeking justice? Revenge? Or would we all rather just look the other way?

June 5-8 2024, Wednesday-Saturday at 7pm, plus Friday at 10pm & Saturday at 2pm @ the Trinity St Playhouse | 901 Trinity St. 78701 | 4th floor of the First Baptist Church of Austin
Tickets are Pay-What-You-Can. $5 minimum online. Click here for reservations.
