Gallery III – Growing Pains: Alyssa Ackerman & Human Condition/Artist Sanity: DarRen Morris
Alyssa Ackerman and DarRen Morris use portraiture to reveal the countless emotions of humanity. Ackerman utilizes nontraditional and craft materials to examine human vulnerability and isolation. As a former gang member, Morris paints from the wounds of his life in hopes of inspiring young people to better versions of themselves. Art is his sanity during incarceration.
Join guest speakers Judy Adrian and Neil Heinen with students from Edgewood College in a discussion about this exhibit, TUE APR 4, 2:30-3:00 PM.

Playhouse Gallery – “Photographing Creativity” – Dick Ainsworth
SAT, JUN 3 – SUN, JUL 9
When Dick approached the Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society, it was not with the usual photographer’s request. Instead of wanting to shoot performance images or posed studio shots, he is interested in capturing the process of creativity itself — a process that begins with the first rehearsal and continues up to and through the opening performance. As a silent observer during rehearsals of the last ten seasons, Dick has visually documented the creative process that is integral to a live concert, but never witnessed by the audience.
Playhouse Gallery is sponsored by Madison Community Foundation and by contributions to Overture Center for the Arts.
Monday – Thursday, 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM
Friday, 9 AM – 9 PM
Saturday, 10:30 AM – 9 PM
