Foer shows her complex collages in the Gershman Gallery this fall. The public reception for the artist is on the exhibition's opening day: Thursday, Sept. 14, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Foer is a BFA graduate of the Philadelphia College of Art, now the University of the Arts.

Foer now lives in Annapolis, Maryland. On view through Dec. 15.
GayBINGO is a fabulous, irreverent, campy, wildly popular monthly event that has been entertaining Philadelphia audiences for 20 years. Celebrating a different theme each month, hundreds of people pack the hall in Center City's Gershman Y for a night of good old-fashioned Bingo - with a decidedly different twist. GayBINGO is hosted by the infamous Bingo Verifying Divas - a wild bunch of drag queens who entertain the crowd with their wacky humor and always outrageous costumes. It promises to be an evening of unbridled fun, complete with ridiculous musical numbers, hilarious drag queen antics, chances to win fabulous prizes and more. GayBINGO was named "Best of Philly (Gay Event)," won PGN's Lambda Award for Best Fundraiser, and was the subject of a popular WHYY documentary. It has also been featured in the LA Times, Washington Post, and USA Today. GayBINGO events have raised over $3.5 million to date in support of HIV/AIDS services.
