Margaret Sutton: Face to Face @ Convergence Gallery, Simpson Library 2nd floor Tickets
Apr 19 – Sep 18 all-day
Margaret Sutton: Face to Face @ Convergence Gallery, Simpson Library 2nd floor | Fredericksburg | Virginia | United States

Margaret Sutton, a 1926 graduate of the State Teachers College, now UMW, was a prolific artist, and most of her drawings, paintings, and correspondence is in the collection of UMW Galleries. Students in Professor Och’s ARTH 317: Laboratory in Museum Studies have curated an exhibition from this extraordinary archive. The works span much of Sutton’s career, from 1936 through the 1970s, decades of remarkable developments in American art centered in New York City, Sutton’s home for this entire period.

Margaret Sutton: Face to Face opens April 19 in the Convergence Gallery of Simpson Library. The opening reception is from 5:00 to 7:00 pm and is free and open to the public.

This exhibition is made possible with support from the Department of Art and Art History, UMW Galleries, the Museum Studies Program, Simpson Library, the Convergence Gallery, Alfred Levitt, and the students in ARTH 317.

The Amish Project – Pay What You Can Preview @ Klein Theatre Tickets

The Amish Project - Pay What You Can Preview @ Klein Theatre

Actors take the stage to inhabit the lives of the Pennsylvania Amish community brought to its knees by unimaginable tragedy. In October of 2006, a shooter entered a one room schoolhouse in the Old Order Amish community and took aim, leaving five young girls dead and five injured before he turned the gun on himself. Playwright Jessica Dickey’s fictional story exploring the aftermath of this real-life event explores the unthinkable concept of forgiveness in the face of a senseless and violent act. Standing on either side of the oft-blurred lines between fact and fiction, The Amish Project is a hauntingly elegant and timely study of compassion and its rightful place in today’s changing world.

“Extraordinary . . . compelling . . . a remarkable piece of writing.” –The New York Times

1 hour, 30 minutes

*This is a Pay What You Can Preview Performance. Patrons pay whatever they wish for each ticket. Tickets available one hour before performance.
