You've got three days left to visit the Chinatown Yacht Club. Huh? Surrounding a weathered dinghy suspended from the ceiling are banners scrawled with the names of every establishment in Chinatown. "It's a full survey of ground-level shops showing the diversity, potential, tensions and flavors of this quickly changing urban treasure," says artist Rich Richardson, The ARTS at Marks Garage creative director. He created the work for a show in Houston put on by Shifting Sands Communities: Art, Culture and Neighborhood Change, which supports neighborhood-based arts and cultural organizations as stakeholders in neighborhoods experiencing economic and demographic shifts. At The ARTS at Marks Garage, 1159 Nu'uanu Ave. at Pauahi Street, 521-2903.

USING DANCE AS A VEHICLE

Want to "tap into the ancient hermetic science of alchemy"? Robin Sol, who has studied as a shaman's apprentice, searches for new ways to use rhythm, movement and connection to alter everyday consciousness. "We will use dance to transmute our lead into gold," she says of her two-hour class at 6:45 p.m. Sunday at Ong King Art Center, 184 N. King St. No dance experience is necessary, and live musicians will accompany the class. Call 737-3786 to reserve a spot. Fee: $10 to $15.
