The Art Lab in Old Town is opening an exhibit of Sage Helperman’s abstract art in an eight-day event, the July Jubilee, from July 3-11.


Helperman uses India ink, markers and colored pencil to create artwork described as “eclectic, abstract and sometimes visionary” on the Art Lab website. Alongside his exhibition, Helperman will perform experimental music on electric guitar, ukulele, hand drum and iPad.

Helperman will debut his DJ alter ego, “MC Sage,” at the exhibition, according to his Facebook page.

On the first night of the exhibition, the Art Lab space will be shared from 6-11 p.m. with Six Degrees Dance Collaborative, a dance company. The company will choreograph select dance pieces to Helperman’s music.
