Upcoming Arts Events

New Plays in Two Days
Student playwrights have 24 hours to write short plays. Student actors and directors have 24 hours to rehearse them. Can’t be done? That’s why we do it! This will be in the Studio Theatre, Tennessee Williams Center, on Saturday, Sept. 9, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

SAS Gallery
Austin Reavis’ exhibition, “flotsam, jetsam, lagan, and derelict,” features his sculpture, paintings and photography. His work will be in the St. Andrew’s-Sewanee Gallery through Sept. 24. A reception celebrating the exhibition will be held in the SAS Gallery on Thursday, Sept. 14 from 4:30–6:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend.

University Art Gallery
The University Art Gallery will open the 2017–18 exhibition season with Anna Campbell’s “Apparatus for a Dream Sequence,” an exhibition of sculpture that takes ordinary objects and materials and presents them in unfamiliar ways.  Materials and objects become metaphor. Pragmatic materials preclude finished or closed meanings, and the difficulties and artifice of gender performances of all kinds are laid bare. “Apparatus for a Dream Sequence” is on view in the University Art Gallery through Friday, Oct. 13.
Campbell will present her work at a public talk and reception at 4:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 15, in Convocation Hall. The public is invited to attend.

‘Brilliant Traces’
On Friday, Sept. 15 and Saturday, Sept. 16, “Brilliant Traces” by Cindy Lou Johnson and produced by the Nashville’s Pipeline Collective will be in the Studio Theatre, Tennessee Williams Center, 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
