An elderly woman wanders into Central Park, perches on a bench and imagines everything happening around her is part of an elaborate opera. That's the bittersweet storyline of "Strawberry Fields," half of a K-U Opera double bill opening tonight in the Black Box Theatre. K-U voice professor and mezzo-soprano Joyce Castle will reprise the leading role, which won her critical acclaim at the opera's East Coast premiere. Also on the bill is "Faces on the Barroom Floor."
Young artists in Van Go Mobile Arts' SuperJAMS program are hoping you'll 'Have a Heart' as Valentine's Day approaches. They've created handmade gifts that will be for sale at the gallery through February 14. The work is being unveiled at a reception that lasts until 8 this evening.
And an exhibition called "Vires Fati," which is Latin for "The Forces of Destiny," opens tomorrow at ad astra galleria. The show features paintings and a multimedia retrospective by Clay Center artist Robert Pearson. Weather will keep him away this weekend, but the artist is scheduled to be at the gallery February 14.
