William Daniels
WILLIAM DANIELS

EXHIBITION

William Daniels is a multidisciplinary artist who works primarily in textiles, combining the contemporary and the archaic. His fine art quilts and accessories feature traditional quilt blocking and paper piecing techniques, which he combines with nontraditional components and materials. Daniels derives inspiration from anthropology and urban art practices that confront contemporary issues, and is always experimenting to integrate modern archetypes with historical, societal, or spiritual topics.  September 24 –  October 26, 2018

KEN WOOD: ARGONAUTS

EXHIBITION

Ken Wood combines complex color relations with bold, sweeping gestures to explore the unfolding relations of space, shape, and color. This exhibition features prints from the Argonauts Quarto, a new series that integrates Wood’s long-standing interest in iterations of color and shape with various types of temporal and conceptual constraint—a combination that lends the work a powerful urgency.  November 530, 2018

Kench Lott
KENCH LOTT: THESIS EXHIBITION

EXHIBITION

Working intuitively with such basic materials as hollow steel piping and solid steel rods, Kench Lott creates visual paradoxes in order to generate a mindful form of escapism.

Bug
BUG
By Tracy Letts

PERFORMANCE

This dark comedy takes place in a seedy motel room outside Oklahoma City, where Agnes, a drug-addled cocktail waitress, is hiding from her ex-con ex-husband. Her lesbian biker friend R.C. introduces her to Peter, a handsome drifter who might be an AWOL Gulf War veteran. They soon begin a relationship that takes place almost entirely within the increasingly claustrophobic confines of her motel room.  Tracy Letts’s tale of love, paranoia, and government conspiracy is a thought-provoking psycho-thriller that mixes terror and laughter at a fever pitch.

The Master and MargaritaMASTER AND MARGARITA
By Mikhail Bulgakov
with a new adaptation specifically for Georgia Southern by Stacia Saint Owens

PERFORMANCE

Combining two distinct yet interwoven parts—one set in ancient Jerusalem, one in contemporary Moscow—the novel veers from moods of wild theatricality with violent storms, vampire attacks, and a Satanic ball; to such somber scenes as the meeting of Pilate and Yeshua, and the murder of Judas in the moonlit garden of Gethsemane; to the substanceless, circus-like reality of Moscow.

April 17 – 24, 2019

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. There will be no performance Sunday or Monday.
