Tiny paintings

“A loosely woven tale of a woodswalking artist in tiny words, paintings and photographs,” an exhibit by local artist Denise Beaudet, will be on view at the A.P.E. Gallery, 126 Main St. in Northampton, for one weekend only.

Beaudet will have on display more than 150 tiny paintings and photos, “full of narrative rememberings and woodland critters.” Proceeds will fund the final leg of the “Roots to Resistance Project,” which uses arts and activism in the Valley to support and partner with women activists across the globe.

Hours are Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be a reception Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m.

Hard at work

‘Transperformance’ is back, for the 26th time, to raise money for arts enrichment in Northampton public schools.

As in the past, organizers at the sponsoring Northampton Arts Council have invited local musicians to impersonate famous ones whose band names or music relate to a specific theme. This year, that theme is “Labor Party,” meaning all the music and/or musicians will relate in some way to a job, an occupation or a type of work.

For example, The Young@Heart Chorus will appear as MGMT; Page Six as The Police; Outer Stylie as Talking Heads; Philip Price as Red House Painter, King Radio as Men at Work, Zip Cody as Johnny Paycheck ... you get the idea.

The show runs from 4 to 9:30 p.m. at the Pines Theater at Look Park in Florence.

Tickets cost $10; $8 for seniors 65 and up, and veterans; and $5 for kids 12 and under.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at State Street Fruit Store in Northampton, Cooper’s Corner in Florence and A.J. Hastings in Amherst, or at the entrance to the Pines Theater, Tuesday, beginning at 3 p.m.
