    Visual Arts

    Davis Gallery: Reflector

    This is something to see, all right, as the gallery walls are filled with work by artists tasked with capturing either their whole self or an aspect of self. And most of the artists have depicted themselves via abstractions and symbolic representations. Note that Randall Reid, Jan Heaton, John Sager, Chun Hui Pak, and Caprice Pierucci are only some of the artists represented in this group show, and we reckon you'll be right there with us, viewing the array of wonders on display.
    Through Sept. 8

    Lucy Bellwood: 100 Demon Dialogues

    Huzzah! Bellwood's book of cartoons speaks back to that bothersome inner voice, that nattering nabob of negativism that tries to keep a good artist down. You know that voice, right? And you know that the little demon doesn't need to STFU, really, because maybe it's an important part of you that just needs a little, oh, re-direction every now and then? To cool its discouraging jets? This delightful little book, presented by the author tonight, will show you how it's done. Recommended!

    Theatre

    The One-Minute Play Festival

    No, it's true, plays that are just one minute each! Plays that explore the local zeitgeist and neighborhood narratives! More than 40 of them in this fifth annual showcase – all original, curated by Caitlin Wees and Dominic D’Andrea and written by, well, how about: Lowell Bartholomee, Sarah Saltwick, Elizabeth Cobbe, Reina Hardy, Rupert Reyes, C. Denby Swanson, Laura Freeman, Amparo Garcia-Crow, Adrienne Dawes, Lindsey Lane, Max Langert, and – oh, the list goes on. Good stuff, here: fast, fierce, and engaging AF, from your friends at ScriptWorks.
