Pottery Confessions-Opening Reception

Art can provide us with beauty or even inspiration in our daily life, but what role does functional art play? How does our lemonade pitcher or key bowl reflect our own stories? What secrets do these objects keep? Pottery confessions will display original and hand crafted pottery from our community members’ collections accompanied by a story of that piece and how it has had a significant role in their lives.

The Seamstress @ The Howmet Playhouse

The Seamstress by Cece Dwyer
July 6-8 , 7:30 pm  

It is 1916, a time when women’s rights are far from equal. Cynthia McFarland, attractive and gracious wife of the extremely wealthy, albeit licentious and abusive, Richard McFarland, finds herself in a desperately compromising position. He wants the requisite wife in an attempt to enter politics. She wants to free herself from a brutal relationship. At Richard’s offhand suggestion, Cynthia hires Andorra Hamilton, a beautiful young seamstress, to be a working guest in their home and outfit her for the upcoming social season and political functions, initiating a series of events that unravel the secret lives of everyone in the McFarland mansion.

Not for young audiences
