Museums as Viewing Machines: Work by Jeffrey Abt @ Ridderhof Martin Gallery

Exhibition runs September 6 – October 14 in University of Mary Washington’s Ridderhof Martin Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday September 6, 5-7pm
Artist Talk: Friday September 7, noon

This exhibition features Abt’s Wandering Gallery project and Museum series. The Wandering Gallery project explores the behind-the-scenes, never-ending cycle of unpacking and packing, installation and de-installation, documentation, and interpretation associated with changing exhibitions.

Abt’s Museum series focuses on the visual parallels between galleries and sacred spaces, particularly religious sanctuaries. Abt is intrigued by environments created to foster contemplation, whether for the purposes of studying artworks or for spiritual introspection.

All events are free and open to the public
Gallery hours: Tues-Fri 10am- 4pm, Sat/Sun 1-4pm

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
