The Wandering Ghost Pop Up Art Show features more than 30 local artists hanging work at Drekker Brewing Co. this Thursday and inviting the public in for a look and a chance to buy starting at 4 p.m. At 6 p.m., Fargo artist Punchgut will host Monster Draw Club, inviting artists of all ages and talent levels to pencil in some sketchy characters.

‘Love, Loss and What I Wore’
Thursday through Saturday, May 14
The stage is set at West Fargo’s Thunder Coffee for a reading of “Love, Loss and What I Wore.” The collection of monologues, written by sisters Nora and Delia Ephron, based on the book by Ilene Beckerman, looks at significant articles of clothing in the lives of five women, from a prom dress to a bathrobe. Starring Mitzi Trooien, Benita LeBlanc, Aimee Klein, Brenda Jo Gillund and Emily Engebretson, the play is directed by Toni Gredesky with assistance from Brenna Lahren. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and again May 20 and 21. Specialty coffee drinks, wine and cocktails are available. Tickets are $23.
Joe B. Milosevich
Sunday, May 15
Sculptor Joe B. Milosevich is back at the Rourke Art Gallery + Museum this week for a new show, “The Collected Object.” The artist’s assemblages create new life out of odd and assorted items, bringing about a childlike sense of play, wonder, excitement, exploration and questioning. A public opening will be held from 1:30-3 p.m. Sunday, with Milosevish giving an artist’s talk at 2 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. Masks are strongly recommended.
Benefit Concert for Ukraine
Fargo-Moorhead bands are armed and ready to rock for Ukraine with Sunday’s benefit concert at Fargo Brewing Co. The show’s title, I Don't Need a Ride, I Need a Beer, is a play on Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s now famous response to a suggested evacuation, “I need ammunition, not a ride.” Music starts at 4 p.m. with sets from Hiahli, The Forefeathers, The Moody River Band, The Cropdusters and Elon Busk & the Electric Miracle Workers, with a Ukranian menu served by Lunchbox eatery. Live paintings by Nate Luetgers will be auctioned off. This event is all-ages with a $10 donation at the door, with all proceeds going to globalgiving.org to assist in the Ukranian refugee crisis,
