Today's Events

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

Lectio Divina or Sacred Reading is the slow, repetitive reading of a sacred text that leads one to the ultimate step of resting in God. It is not Scripture study, nor is it spiritual reading. It is an invitation to take a “long, loving look at Scripture,” says spiritual director Teresa Blythe. “It is a time for falling in love with the Word and experiencing the goodness of God.” This four-step process for being with Scripture in a prayerful manner includes: Reading (Lectio); Meditating (Meditatio); Praying (Oratio); and Contemplating (Contemplatio). Using texts for Lent, you will experience this ancient prayer form in a group setting, though it is easily adapted to individual practice and can be incorporated into your prayer life.

Interpretation matters. The insights readers find in the scriptures depend on the questions we bring to the text. The bible can seem hopelessly dated, silencing women, accepting slavery, using male images of God, but as women have become theologians and scripture scholars their new methods actively engage today’s readers in critical and creative dialog with scripture. What really happened is a historical question. Which version of a parable is oldest is a redaction question about how the scriptures were woven together. Which son is lost, the prodigal or the elder brother, is a literary question about characters in a parable. A feminist theologian sees God’s intent for all women in Jesus straightening up the bent over woman. A liberation theologian laughs with Luke at the Rich Fool’s full granaries and embraces Jesus’s mission to raise up the poor. Nine sessions explore the gospel stories and teachings unique to Luke. Two sessions explore its sequel, the Acts of the Apostles, especially house churches and early Christian women such as Tabitha, Lydia, Phoebe, and Priscilla. We’ll also explore ministries today that continue Jesus’s mission to the poor, the imprisoned, the indebted, and oppressed in our midst.

From a farming community in rural Oregon to the big cities of Los Angeles and New York, playwright EM Lewis takes aim at her own complicated relationship with firearms in The Gun Show. Join Combustible Company for a unique perspective and true stories about America’s most dangerous pastime. Poignant yet comedic, this surprisingly-intimate and brutally honest show leans neither right nor left and jumps into the middle of the debate and asks: “Can we have a conversation about this?” While firearms-related suicides continue to spike in Minnesota and across the country, partisan gridlock has largely blocked new policies that might reverse the trend. The diverging cultures of rural and urban America foster starkly different attitudes towards guns, further complicating efforts to find common ground. Against this backdrop, Ms Lewis’ deeply personal stories gives a human voice to both sides of a complicated issue. Performance Dates Friday, March 15th, 7:30pm Opening night Saturday, March 16th, 7:30pm Sunday, March 17th, 2:00pm Afternoon matinee Monday, March 18th, 7:30pm Pay-What-You-Can Thursday, March 21st, 7:30pm ASL-interpreted and audio-described Friday, March 22nd, 7:30pm Post-show discussion Saturday, March 23rd, 7:30pm Sunday, March 24th, 2:00pm Afternoon matinee, final performance
