Hosted at the Wigle Whiskey Barrelhouse & Whiskey Garden, 12 percent of cocktail, beer and merchandise sales will go to nonprofit organization Grounded.

ART

From Groucho Marx’s furry eyebrows and specs, to the scream face thing from Scream, to the Mexican Day of the Dead skulls, masks are an underappreciated

component of cultures all over the world. They’re used for holidays, religious ceremonies, theater, film and bank robberies. Local artist Danielle Robinson taps into this fascination with her aptly named show Masks, at Botanica & Occult Shop in Garfield. The masks, handmade and painted by Robinson, meld influences from assorted cultures and while they tend to be a little creepy, it’s hard to look away from them. The exhibit will be up through July. Alex Gordon Opening reception at 6 p.m. 4901 Penn Ave., Garfield. daniellerobinsonart.com
