Thomas Xenakis pairs abstract paintings with more traditional imagery in Gold Rush.
June 19-July 27: Gold Rush
Gold holds significant meaning for many cultures. In Gold Rush, Marita Liulia and Thomas Xenakis present large-scale works that explore the relationship of gold to spirituality and religious iconography. While Finnish artist Liulia channels her time spent in Hindu and Buddhist cultures, Fulbright Fellow Xenakis displays contemporary, abstract works alongside Greek Orthodox iconography that he creates using traditional, Byzantine techniques. The exhibit will be on view at the Mansion at Strathmore through July 27.
June 19-29: Grounded
Studio Theatre ends its New British Invasion Festival with the London-based Gate Theatre’s production of Grounded, by American playwright George Brant. This one-woman play is about a hot-shot fighter pilot whose unexpected pregnancy grounds her in a trailer outside Vegas, where her new assignment is to fly drones in Afghanistan. Directed by Christopher Haydon, the show runs through June 29.
