Spontaneous and intimate artistic expressions are revealed through the dynamic possibilities of performance art. “Assorted Arrangements: A Night of Eclectic Artistic Performances,” at Thumbprint Gallery on May 5th, presents three distinct contemporary performances by Jessica Hirst, Dylan Barmmer and Patricia Maldonado.
Jessica Hirst will be presenting an expressive Avant guard art performance. Typically Hirst works with performance, video, photography, writing, installations, and assemblage.

Spoken word performer, Dylan Barmmer is the raconteur and founder of Word Is Born and the self-proclaimed Poet Laureate of Facebook. When he's not waxing Poetic online, he is out in The Real World committing Random Acts of Poetry, hiking or practicing Yoga (he is also known as The Mad Yogi Poet). Barmmer has self-published two Spoken Word albums, and his work has appeared in the pages of The San Diego Poetry Annual, LA Yoga Magazine, Elephant Journal and The Poetry of Yoga.
