Light in Line – work of Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner @ Claymakers Gallery
May 26 @ 1:00 pm – Jun 30 @ 6:00 pm

Artists Lisa Stinson and Tim Turner combine strengths in this two-person show. Stinson is exhibiting selections from several bodies of work, including illustrative pieces from her “Time Marking,” “Arabesque,” and “Textere” series. Hung as wall pieces, these works complement a collection of Turner’s functional pottery. Both artists prefer unassuming forms on which to work surface inflections and layer painterly glazes. Both often choose treatments that convey a sense of inner luminosity emerging through strata. A multi-part installation from the “Textere Series” – collaborative work by Stinson and her husband, glass artist Ken Carder (above) – seems almost a three-dimensional extraction of the intuitive, gestural linear decorations found throughout the show.

Loud Color Luminous Sound: Parasol B @ The Carrack
Jun 21 @ 11:00 am – Jun 24 @ 5:00 pm

Memo from the desk of Curator, Kerry Crocker:

Please join me in June for “Loud Color Luminous Sound”, an exhibit of interactive, colorful, noise-making skulpturs and assemblages which were rescued from imminent demise in the parallel timeline which we designate as Timethread “B”. Until recently these artwerks had been misplaced in storage since the time they were transported to my timethread, in late 1971. The artist signed these werks using the name “Parasol”. For the exhibit of these artefakts we will attribute the pieces to Parasol “B”. The artist states through the werk, clearly, that art should be touched, interacted with, played with, to be fully experienced.

Come visit to experience these werks and learn more about their history.

Don’t Dress for Dinner @ Raleigh Little Theatre
Jun 21 @ 8:00 pm – Jun 24 @ 3:00 pm

“Don’t Dress for Dinner” (Comedy), by Marc Camoletti.

Bernard is planning a romantic weekend with his mistress in his charming converted French farmhouse, while his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a Cordon Bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights and has invited his best friend, Robert, along to provide the alibi. It’s foolproof. What could possibly go wrong? Well… Suppose Robert turns up, not realizing quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret lovers and consequently determined that Jacqueline will not leave for the weekend. Suppose the cook must pretend to be the mistress, and the mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone’s alibi is confused with everyone else’s. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and Robert improvise at breakneck speed.

Pilobolus @ Durham Performing Arts Center
Jun 21 @ 8:00 pm – Jun 23 @ 1:00 pm

“Pilobolus embodies a large part of what the best in contemporary dance is all about: discovery. Making something new with the same standard body parts the rest of us have”—The Washington Post. Pilobolus began at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire in 1971. Moses Pendleton, an English literature major and cross-country skier, Jonathan Wolken, a philosophy science major and fencer, and Steve Johnson, a pre-med student and pole vaulter, were enrolled in a dance composition class taught by Alison Becker Chase. In that class, they created their first piece, which they titled “Pilobolus”—and a legacy of movement and magic was born. This perennial crowd favorite will present an evening of work based on the five senses including “Gnomen,” a quartet for men with its lyrical exploration of relationships emerging from an unusually inventive physical vocabulary and “Day Two,” one of the company’s most amazing works set to a soundtrack from Brian Eno and Talking Heads that captures the awe of evolution and the wonder of existence. Additionally, Pilobolus teams up with Indie rocker Thao Nguyen in a new ADF commission to create the company’s first all-woman trio. Working in the mode of collage, the darkly comic, physically theatrical piece begins with myriad movement cliches that surround us every day, and then chisels away at them to reveal the nuances of power and the contradictions of identity. Members of Pilobolus will be in residency at ADF Samuel H. Scripps Studios the week of May 21. Evening performances contain nudity.
