Looking for some fun plans this weekend? Look no further than right here in Erie. Here is a list of some great activities that are taking place this weekend!
Kellar’s Modern Magic and Comedy Club presents Matt Donnelly
Matt Donnelly – The Mind Noodler. Matt Donnelly has no business being a magician… The Mind Noodler was spawned when Penn Jillette (Penn & Teller) dared the comedian and head writer for Penn & Teller: Fool Us to “learn a goddamn trick.” That dare lead Matt to call in every favor he had and have some of the undisputed powerhouses of the Las Vegas magic scene (Johnny Thompson, Mac King, Teller and Piff the Magic Dragon…just to name a few) to each teach him one trick. Astonishingly, they did! The Mind Noodler was born. From that initial Las Vegas run Matt has garnered tremendous success touring comedy & magic venues and theaters across the country. In Las Vegas, he opens for Piff the Magic Dragon and is a regular fill in for Mac King and Vinny Grosso. Long before he ever thought of dipping his toes into magic, Matt crushed the Las Vegas comedy world. He played the Las Vegas strip alongside Wayne Brady in the smash-hit improv comedy show “Making It Up” at the Venetian, he played Christian Grey in the ridiculously funny “50 Shades the Parody” at Bally’s, and he hosted the innovative and hilarious show, “Executive Monkeys” at The Palms. You can catch Donnelly at Kellar’s Modern Magic and Comedy Club on January 28th and 29th at 7 p.m. For more information on these shows or to purchase tickets, please call 814-461-0911 or visit their website.

Made by the Lake Woodworking by Regional Artists
The Erie Art Museum is proud to display the Made by the Lake Woodworking by Regional Artists exhibit. This exhibition of fine wood art, the first to ever show at the Erie Art Museum, presents an in-depth exploration into the craftsmanship of woodworking artists from, or currently based in the Erie area. For decades, the growing community of wood working artists has continued to flourish in the region. Their technical execution exemplifies the versatility of a local, natural resource that is deeply intertwined with society. Their influences range from travel and nature to mentors from local universities and internationally recognized artists abroad. From utilitarian forms used in daily living to narrative objects that tell a story, these works show the strength and intricacy that can be achieved with wood as its central medium. The exhibit is open during regular museum hours and can be found at the Erie Art Museum. For more information on this exhibit please visit the museum’s website or call 814-459-4077.
