When curiosity got the better of Alice and she set about exploring that old rabbit hole, she opened up not just a new reality for herself, but for the rest of us as well. In that topsy-turvy world she met characters who tested her mettle, and her imagination was stretched to the limit. But that's just the beginning of the story. Since the publication of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, creatives of all stripes, sizes and media have been drawn to further interpreting the tale. In Through the Looking Glass, the new exhibit presented by the Skeleton Krewe at Mad Art Gallery (2727 South 12th Street; 314-771-8230 or www.madart.com), artists including Crystal Rolfe, Gina Simon and Charity Tovrea offer up depictions of wonderful Wonderland characters (such as that infamous Cheshire Cat) through visual performance art. Like the White Rabbit, you don't want to be late for the opening of this exhibit, which runs from 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday, April 6. Admission costs $10, and the show remains on display through Monday, April 30.
Tuesdays-Fridays, Sundays. Starts: April 6. Continues through April 30, 2012
