Today's Events

3/19/2019
Monica Rudquist and Judy Onofrio share an interest in materiality, repetition of form and redefining space through an assemblage of smaller parts. Obvious visual parallels can be drawn between their work, including a monochromatic palette, large-scale installation methods and an aesthetic rooted in vessel-like forms. Each artist also explores the concept and role of accumulation in her art practice: Onofrio assembles structures made from found and cast animal bones, creating complex structures out of individual parts; Rudquist cuts down her wheel-thrown pieces and reassembles them into dynamic compositions she mounts on the wall. For both artists, the objects that make up their works are imbued with power that both Onofrio and Rudquist harness in distinct ways. Opening Reception: February 9, 6-8 pm // Gallery Hours: M-F, 8-8; S-S noon-6

Five short plays by Cristina Florencia Castro, Casey Llewellyn, Oya Mae Duchess-Davis, Philana Omorotionmwan & Aamera Siddiqui Directed by Noël Raymond TWO WEEKS ONLY: March 13 - 24 Wednesdays – Saturdays at 7:30 PM | Sundays at 3 PM In 2018, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court amid allegations of sexual assault. For the first time in years, Roe v. Wade fell into constitutional danger. At the same time, the #metoo movement sparked a national dialogue around power and consent, and record numbers of women ran for public office and won. In a country continuing to fracture along political fault lines, women were on the frontlines of the divide. Following the tradition of The Great Divide I & II, Pillsbury House Theatre has commissioned five short plays on the state of women in the current political climate. Featuring all-women playwrights, actresses, and production staff, She Persists: The Great Divide III is a theatrical experience by, for, and about women.
