A few arts-related events to brighten a rainy first day of November:

–It’s First Thursday, which means galleries in and around Pioneer Square stay open later (usually until 8 p.m.) and many host opening receptions for new shows.

–Also on Nov. 1, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Experience Music Project, all recent winners of Artist Trust grants and fellowships will be honored, including Arts Innovator Awards, Grants for Artist Projects and the Twining Humber Award. Cellist/artist/activist Paul Rucker, recently named winner of the Garboil Conductive Grant, will perform at the party. Ticket info here.

–And from 8:30-10:30 p.m. at Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts, #508, is 4Culture’s Conductive Garboil Grant After-Party, honoring Rucker and finalists, panelists and others involved in the grant.

How to describe Rucker? We’ll let 4Culture do it:

“His music (created on cello, from improvised to strictly composed) and visual artwork (incorporating infrared beams, lasers, touch pads, glass instruments, sound, video, photography, animation, and large-format prints) embodies the innovative spirit of the Conductive Garboil Grant.”
