Trove Arts presents:
TWISTED & TORTURED
An evening of tales and art history from the macabre.
TWISTED & TORTURED
is an intimate, immersive adventure through art history, a bit of historical fiction, a few ounces of decadent themed N.A. elixirs, a dash of a fun art lesson, and one eye of newt!
This “Halloween show for grown-ups” is hosted in the Trove Arts ART PARLOUR – a redesigned lower bungalow flat in Wauwatosa created to immerse small audiences deep into art-history themed experiences with 10 channel surround-sound, theatrical lighting, custom video, and a variety of special effects!
TWISTED & TORTURED Is approximately 2 hours and includes:
Exciting, multi-media storytelling.
Tasty themed N.A. libation breaks.
Fun art lesson and art supplies

Is that a storm rumbling off in the distance?
Something scurry underfoot?
The shadowy, skeletal raven above the door shudders to life and beckons you to find your seat...
Your journey is about to begin!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
WHAT KIND OF SHOW IS THIS?
TWISTED & TORTURED is part One-person-SHOW, part ART HISTORY LESSON, part HANDS - ON ART LESSON and an EXPERIENCE we guarantee you'll talk about for some time!
SO... IT'S NOT AN ART CLASS?
You WILL be painting. But... You'll not be leaving with a finished knock-off of Van Gogh's “Starry Night” or a barn board sign about “Living, Laughing, or Loving.”
You will, however, experience a rich, immersive evening of fun art history and professional guidance through some hands-on techniques in a unique venue that is purpose-built for this type of intimate, and exclusive event.
While you WILL be creating art, that is just one aspect of your time spent at The Art Parlour.
WILL I BRING A PAINTING HOME?
I REALLY LIKE BASIC PAINT-AND-SIP CLASSES. WILL I LIKE THIS?
I'M LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MORE SERIOUS THAN PAINT-AND-SIP CLASSES. WILL I LIKE THIS?
We think “paint-and-sip” events can be a great deal of fun, and there are plenty of places that do that very well.
However, a fair complaint sometimes about “paint-and-sip classes” is that they are streamlined, and simplified box mix activities geared more towards boisterous, wine-fueled fun without much depth.
Again, nothing wrong with that.
At the opposite end of the spectrum are in-depth art classes for people who are focused solely on improving their craft. These lessons can and should be rather serious and not necessarily a great deal of “fun.”
TROVE ARTS SHOWS BRIDGE THE GAP between splash-and-dash paint-and-sip parties and deep-diving serious art lessons.
We have worked hard to create events that are absolutely fun and enjoyable for both the serious artist and someone just “looking for something unique new to do.”
