'Changing Gears' Paintings by Marjorie E. Arnett , April 5-26
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
05 Apr 2008
Artist Reception Saturday April 5, 6 to 9 PM. Exhibit continues through April 26, 2008.

Marjorie Arnett recently retired as Assistant Dean of the College of Fine Arts, Indiana University of Pennsylvania to work full time from her home studio in Leetsdale, PA. Arnett is an interdisciplinary artist, a published playwright and poet. Represented in private and corporate collections she has exhibited throughout the United States and Europe.

If there has been a pattern to Marjorie’s work and life over 40 years of painting, it has been one of Changing Gears, forcing styles to converge and cross pollinate onto the canvas.

In Arnett’s flower paintings one sees the interplay between natural forms and abstract semblances of these forms; from this the appearance of something altogether unexpected dawns.

Other new works are playful, color filled compositions, reflecting the silliness of Dr. Seuss meeting the soberness of Ayn Rand in the parlor for tea. The viewer is often asked to recognize part of oneself as a child in these playful color filled compositions.

The final group of paintings represents Changing Gears toward simplicity and a look toward the future. Large bold shapes speak of a straight forward energy through the placement of color, line and form.

Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
05 Apr 2008
Wired to Win, an extraordinary new film in IMAX®, showcases the amazing ability of the human brain to overcome adversity, accomplish the near-impossible, and power each of us to victory and success in life.

The brain’s abilities are illustrated through cyclists racing in the Tour De France. Over the course of the event, they are caught up in hair-raising crashes, dramatic battles over the Alps and Pyrenees and action-packed descents down steep mountain roads. Their ultimate goal? The finish line on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

The film raises the questions "how do they do this?" and "why do they do this?" Ultimately the answers lie within the mind and the human brain itself.


$8 adults; $6 children 3-12 and seniors 62+

$7/$5 for members

BIG LOVE by Charles Mee
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
05 Apr 2008
America’s most innovative playwright re-imagines the western world’s oldest play in Big Love, a chaotic juxtaposition of poetry, dance, music, and violence inspired by Aeschylus’ The Suppliant Maidens. Fifty reluctant brides seek refuge in Italy from their fifty insistent suitors. What’s a girl to do when her would-be spouse won’t take no for an answer? Kill him. Brutally. Charles Mee’s acclaimed play plunges us into a rollercoaster war of the sexes and rhapsodizes sisterhood, independence, and rare true love.
This production contains violence, profanity, and some nudity.
