The Utah Cultural Celebration Center and Mary Atwater Weaver’s Guild presents a gallery exhibition of handmade fiber arts. Textile artists have created contemporary fiber arts inspired by traditional ethnic textiles — including the textiles’ techniques, styles, colors, and designs. These contemporary expressions have been inspired directly by the ethnic textiles fiber artists have encountered. The exhibition will also include these examples of traditional handmade textiles from around the world.
Three artists who work primarily in black and white, are brought together to explore the natural world devoid of color in the exhibition “Remapping the Natural World in Black and White.” Elise LaJeunesse creates bromoil images which have their root in photography. A black and white photograph is printed on special paper, and the silver removed from the image through a bleaching process. Lithographic ink is then applied manually to the bleached image, creating a painterly image of the photograph. Printmaker and mixed media artist Nancy Steele-Makasci creates monochromatic images based on elements she finds inspiring in nature. Matt Kruback’s black and white drawings are his attempt to understand his personal disconnection with the natural world as well as giving him an exercise to regain that awareness and perspective.
Calling all coffee lovers — this in-depth course provides insight into what goes into every quality cup of joe.

When all is said and done, gather for a tutorial on brewing, cupping, and tasting the roasted blend created in week one.

Pygmalion Productions is delighted to present Brian Richard Mori’s “Hellman v. McCarthy” at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center from February 27 through March 14. “Hellman v. McCarthy” is based on the greatest literary feud in modern American history. In January 1980, Mary McCarthy appeared as a guest on “The Dick Cavett Show” and declared that “every word [Lillian Hellman] writes is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the.'” Hellman went ballistic and sued McCarthy. The suit spanned more than four years and was the talk of the literary community. The play is a dramatic reenactment of the $2.25 million slander lawsuit Hellman brought against McCarthy.
The play features Reb Fleming as Lillian Hellman, Barbara Gandy as Mary McCarthy, Allen Smith as Dick Cavett, William Richardson as Ryan Hobbs, Jeffrey Owen as Lester Marshall and Jeremy Chase as Burt Fielding. Tickets to “Hellman v. McCarthy” are $15/20 and are available from Arttix.org or 801.355.ARTS (2787)

Hidden Tuscany is a book of exploration. It takes the reader into a part of Tuscany far beyond the usual tourist haunts of Chianti, Florence, or Siena. Author John Keahey urges travelers to abandon the autostrada, shake off preset itineraries, and follow roads barely two lanes wide, discovering seaside communities and fishing villages along the Tuscan sea that have long lured Europeans, but few Americans. Then move with him farther inland into rolling foothills rich in chestnut forests, cherry orchards and ancient olive groves, expansive fields of wheat and sunflowers, and vineyards that sweep far to the horizon. It is still possible to follow the paths of Etruscans, Romans, Crusaders, the Florentine sculptor Michelangelo, great armies, and pilgrims from throughout the western world eager to get to Rome.
