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”.

Grounded by George Brant

November 11, 2014 — 07:00 PM

From the award-winning playwright George Brant, comes the story of an ace fighter pilot whose career in the sky is ended early due to an unexpected pregnancy. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away.

The Capital region tour of GROUNDED is being produced by Women Against War in conjunction with The Theater Institute at Sage College. It is being directed by Russell Sage College Teaching Artist Leigh Strimbeck and is featuring Katelyn Burrello.

Reading: Monday January 26th 2014 at 7pm

The longest month of the winter is near its end. Slowly the sun’s light and the length of the days begin to return. We in the Northeast tolerate, survive and thrive through these days with the hope of a coming renewal both literally and metaphorically. Words and stories emerging from the souls of writers both novice and accomplished are set to paper during these times. Come share with all as we gather to welcome back the light with humor, candor and self appraisal or maybe, just a good story well told and read aloud.

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.
