Roadshow Series: Riki Kuropatwa’s new exhibition is warm and awkward, painted with beautiful, chunky strokes — the scenes borrowed from Antiques Roadshow. “It offers a very rich array of humans interacting in a gentle and awkward way,” she explains. “When I began, I was more interested in the relationships between the people and the objects or the public and the experts, but it evolved into more universal themes such as communication and social behaviour. I also love how they relate to historical paintings, especially when they take place outdoors.”
Details: through Dec. 1 at Bugera Matheson Gallery (1B 10110 124 St.), no charge
All Is Bright: It’s a very warm November, which should make the annual All Is Bright festival on 124 Street extra pleasant this year, musical highlights including Alicia Cardinal, Manny Y Su Esquina Latina, Jess Stokes, Rellik, The Dice Cubes, Karella and King Muskafa. The Light Up the Night Ceremony is at 5 p.m. in Helen Nolan Park, and down the strip will be the usual inviting fare of immersive light installations, dolled-up shop windows, cookie decorating, taffy-making, food trucks, beer and wine and even good ol’ socialist Santa Claus ho-ho-hoing!
Details: 4 p.m. — 8 p.m. Saturday on 124 Street between 107 and 109 avenues, no charge
Depeche Mode: Back in town Tuesday for the first time since October 2017 — and tragically down another founding band member after keyboardist Andy Fletcher died last year, Depeche Mode’s tour is appropriately called Memento Mori — “remembering death.” One of the greatest sensitive-men bands in musical history, DM formed in Essex, U.K., in 1980 and responsible for such semi-goth earworms as Blasphemous Rumours, Everything Counts, Never Let Me Down Again and the Johnny Cash-covered hit Personal Jesus. Should be memorable!
