Date: March 4

A showing of recent works including kinetic sculptors, landscape paintings, propogandist paraphenelia and performance




Time: Doors 7:00pm



Vancouver artist, Mr. Fire-Man brings a display of unique natural horns to the
walls of Ironworks Studio. Hand crafted from locally sourced natural materials,
these trumpets represent an eight year sculptural/musical exploration that began
in the woods of Roberts Creek and culminates with the orchestra called the
Legion of Flying Monkeys.

Each horn is crafted for a specific purpose, whether for playing into a
microphone on stage, or for ceremonial moments and parades. Thus, some are
simple hardwood branches made hollow, while others are built with complex bends
to accommodate mutes and tight spaces. Materials range from hardwoods like
empress, elderberry and cherry to obscure plant forms like the invasive giant
cow parsnip (an exceptional natural tube).

Mr. Fire-Man's band, the Legion of Flying Monkeys Horn Orchestra (LFM) performs
interactive shows for the Super Robertson Supper Show at the Railway Club and
other local events. More than an orchestra, the LFM expects the audience to
play along, sing, dance and willfully cross that barrier between observer and

Please be invited for the opening night, Friday March 4th from 7 to 10
(with a performance from 8 to 8:45 by the LFM Horn Orchestra).
Entrance is free. Drinks available.
