Abecedarius 26 + 1 Recent Works by Colin Boyd + Michael Oatman

October 31, 2014 to December 23, 2014

Reception: Friday, October 31, 5-9PM

Recipients of the First Annual Arts Center Emerging and Established Artist Awards, Boyd and Oatman have teamed up to present an exhibition and book that looks at the natural world and the roles humans have in misshaping it.

Using the literary format of the Abecedarius (e.g., “A is for Apple”, “B is for Bear”, “C is for Crops Patented by Monsanto”, etc.), the two artists will turn the gallery into a walk-able cautionary tale – with a few nervous laughs for good measure.

Opening on Halloween – a holiday that honors monsters – Abecedarius will usher viewers into historical realms of extinction, scientific mishap and mythology; Abecedarius will feature encounters with ideas unknown, undercooked and just plain stupid; and finally Abecedarius will import/export the violence and majesty of worlds labeled “out there”, “in here” and “the future”.

Saratoga Opera Presents “The Three Little Pigs”

March 14, 2015 — 10:00 AM

Saratoga Opera’s version of the story of The Three Little Pigs is based on scenes from operas by W.A. Mozart. While brother pigs Don Giovanni and Cherubino set off the make homes of sticks and straw, their sister, Despina, goes to the library to read up on “huff-proof, puff-proof” home construction. After Wolfgang Bigbad blows down the boys’ flimsy homes, they run to their sister’s sturdy new brick house quite ready to admit that going to the library and reading books is a pretty smart thing to do after all.
Age Range: K-6 and Kids of All Ages
