Art a la Carte

Welcome to Art a la Carte. I'm Journal-World arts editor Mindie Paget.

A miracle unfolds tonight at the Lawrence Community Theatre with the

opening of "The Miracle Worker." The play tells the story of Helen

Keller, who was stricken blind and deaf in infancy and later learned to

communicate with the help of a motivated teacher. The show is sponsored

by Bill and Janet Muggy, whose late son Nate worked as a signer for the

deaf. The lights go up at 8 p.m., and the show continues for three weekends.

Lamenting the fact that fantasy art gets a bad rap, Gary Shainheit has

started a gallery at his downtown businesses, The Sacred Sword. The

first exhibition opens with a reception from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday

and highlights the work of three artists in addition to Shainheit, who

specializes in acrylic paintings that feature swords.

And Saturday evening at 6 p.m., the Lawrence Art Auction party returns

to the Lawrence Arts Center. More than 236 works donated by nearly 240

artists are available in both the silent and live auctions. Live bidding

begins at 7:30, and all proceeds benefit the Lawrence Arts Center's

gallery program.

I'm Mindie Paget with Art a la Carte.
