I KILLED LAURA PALMER!
Though technically last year marked the 20th anniversary of David Lynch and Mark Frost's seminal, televised art-house meisterwerk Twin Peaks, one can hardly argue the worthiness of continuing the celebration at least until this June (the 20th anniversary of its final episode.) It is virtually impossible to imagine how the landscape of dramatic television might look today had Twin Peaks not blazed through our consciousness (and telly sets) over the course of 14 amazing months at the top of the 1990s, with its indelible cross-section of wholesome Americana and unspeakable horrorâ¦ the former of which makes the old-fashioned, log-cabin flavor of Clifton's Brookdale cafeteria the perfect location to exhibit "In the Trees: Twin Peaks 20th Anniversary Art Exhibition." Opening this weekend at the downtown eatery, the show features tributes to Peaks' unforgettable world and characters from 15 participating artists, plus work from co-creator Lynch and actors Grace Zabriskie and Richard Beymer. The clear upside to a Clifton's art show?: The cherry pie and damn fine coffee are just a quick stroll downstairs. Clifton's Brookdale, 648 South Broadway; Opening reception Saturday, February 12, 8 p.m.-11 p.m.; open to public on a first-come basis. For more information: www.twinpeaks20.com
