■ The opening party for the “Bring Your Own Art” show at Studio Bob, upstairs at 118˝ E. Front St., will be held today from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Budding or established artists of any age have already contributed up to three works to this twice-yearly exhibition.
After tonight, the show will be open again from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday and from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays through Jan. 26. For more details phone Studio Bob owner Bob Stokes at 415-990-0457.
■ Hawaiian native Roma Peters, known as Hawaii Amor, sings and plays songs of the islands in a free performance this afternoon. The place is Elliott’s Antique Emporium, 135 E. First St.; Hawaii Amor brings a soprano ukulele for songs in English and Hawaiian from 2 p.m. till 5 p.m. every second Saturday of the month.
■ The Allé Stage, a performance-art space adjacent to Studio Bob at 118˝ E. Front St., presents dancer Merryn Welch, the musical duo Dark Jester and the Noxious Oxalis variety show at 9 tonight.
This event for the 18-and-older crowd features burlesque performances by Miss Daisy Mayhem and Imzadi, a spoken-word offering by Angie Huckstep, dancers M-Deezy and Baby Cakes and a musical playlist by Roman Holladay. Welch and Dark Jester, meantime, blend Gypsy and steampunk influences in their performance.
Producer Sarah Tucker has five words of description for the show: “Sexy, creepy, funny, touching, real.” Food and drink will be available from The Loom bar beside the stage.
■ A new show of photography printed on metal is on display at Oven Spoonful, 110 E. First St., just east of the Conrad Dyar Memorial Fountain at Laurel Street.
Kelly Flynn, an artist, science teacher, math teacher and transplant from Florida, has spent the past two years making pictures of the Olympic Peninsula’s land- and waterscapes. She prints her images by infusing dyes onto coated aluminum sheets, giving the photos a luminescent quality.
Art and nature lovers are invited to enjoy Flynn’s art along with beer, wine, soft drinks and appetizers during Oven Spoonful’s reception from 6 p.m. to
7 p.m. today; her work will stay on display through January.
