Old Time Radio Group
Meeting every Monday at 10 am
Group Leader: Connie Martin
Senior theatre provides older adults with an ideal opportunity to display their acting, singing, and dramatic talents. For some, it’s an opportunity to revive and reprise their skills. For others, it’s the chance of a lifetime to take center stage. No memorization, read from a script. No experience necessary, singing optional.
So far we have about a six members but would welcome more to help with research, reading scripts, sound effects, commercials, music, voice coaching, and announcing. Look in the near future for their debut show – be sure to tune us in!
Art Center Tour
Thursday, August 14, leaving Center at 11:40 am or meet us there for Noon tour.
Tour of visiting art exhibition: Lamar Peterson: Suburbia Sublime, the first survey exhibition of his work that includes painting, collage, drawing, and a newly commissioned outdoor sculpture.
This exhibition is a comprehensive overview of the artist’s career since he completed graduate school in 2001 and considers the vibrant painted images that poignantly examine American middle-class culture through a re-contextualization of both historical and contemporary racial stereotypes. With adroit handling of ink, gouache, acrylic, and oil paint, a distinctive color palette combined with surface treatment ranging from the super flat and hard edge to expressive and loose brush, Peterson confronts black expression, iconic and non-iconic representation of American masculinity, and the incongruity of all.
Cost: $3, members only
