Opening Night of ‘Don Juan the libertine’ at Ghent Playhouse, May 24

Based on Dom Juan or Le Festin de Pierre by Moliere, newly translated by Daniel Hoyt Daniels.

Don Juan’s life of insolence, debauchery and philandering ways have left his valet believing that such behavior will only bring his master to an evil end.  While actually detesting Don Juan’s actions, the valet has remained faithful, frequently cautioning his master.  But how will God tolerate Don Juan’s insolence and arrogance?  This is one of Don Juan’s greatest escapades.

Directed by Barbara Leavel Smith.

Katherine Bernhardt’s ‘GOLD’ Exhibition Opening at Art Omi

Art Omi’s latest exhibit, Katherine Bernhardt’s ‘GOLD’, is a collection of seven large paintings of the enigmatic yet illustrious Pink Panther. The paintings are not dissimilar to Bernhardt’s early work, which focused on supermodels such as Gisele Bündchen and Kate Moss. Over the past decade, Katherine Bernhardt’s subjects have expanded to include pop cultural icons (e.g. Darth Vader, Garfield, E.T., the Pink Panther, etc.), as well as more quotidian objects (cigarettes, toilet paper, MTA MetroCards, sharks, watermelons, Scotch Tape, ice cream, pizza, etc.).

Opening Reception – Saturday, April 6, 2019: 2 – 4pm
