Mainstage production: Everyman

Everyman is successful, popular, and riding high when Death comes calling. Forced to abandon the life he has built, he embarks on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defense. But Death is close behind, and time is running out. One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives.

Directed by Angela Sweigart-Gallagher.

Gallery Discussion with More is More Exhibition Artist: David Gaither

David Gaither is an emerging, self-taught artist from Atlanta, Georgia, whose paintings are bursting with multicolored, non-objective shapes that create an optical tapestry. Figurative forms occasionally occupy these half-real, half-fantasy worlds of the artist’s own meticulous creation. A wide range of iconographic allusions, both recognizable and nonspecific, are depicted in vibrant colors and geometric forms. Large-scale, immersive triptychs and tondos are expansive and elaborate, challenging the distinction between ordinary pictorial space and that depicted in the abstract work.
