The Mystery of Edwin Drood @ Noorda Regional Theatre & Heritage High School Performing Arts Center
Jan 29 @ 6:30 pm
The Mystery of Edwin Drood @ Noorda Regional Theatre & Heritage High School Performing Arts Center | Orem | Utah | United States

This wildly warm-hearted musical kicks off when the Music Hall Royale “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery. Edwin Drood disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve – but has he been murdered? And if so, whodunnit? The giddy playfulness of this play-within-a-play draws the audience toward one of Drood’s most talked-about features, the audience votes on the solution as prelude to the most unusual and hilarious finale!

Jena Schmidt Exhibits at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery

Jena Schmidt Exhibits at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Jena Schmidt paints what she is seeks in her imagination or from her own experience in nature. Through her artistic practice, she explores concepts of direction, wilderness, spiritual guidance, and exploration. When her grandfather passed away, her family inherited his old camping gear. One of the items was a brass compass. Inside the lid, her grandfather had etched the words, “Black North.” This phrase led Schmidt to imagine it as a clue to an undiscovered place, one only her grandfather knew about. She later found out the words were just a reminder that the arrow for North on the compass was black, yet the notion of Black North still influenced her toward wild and mysterious landscapes, which she creates in her paintings. Schmidt will present a gallery talk on Friday, February 20 at 7:00 PM.

Remapping the Natural World in Black and White at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery
Jan 30 all-day
Remapping the Natural World in Black and White at Finch Lane Gallery @ Finch Lane Gallery | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

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.

Letter to the audience:
Welcome to You. As our guest, please make yourself at home. Wander, be nosy, open drawers, thumb through diaries. The more curious you are, the more you will discover, just be sure to put things back the way you found them. You will enter a
nightclub, but the environment and point of focus will change around you frequently. Any space not occupied is available to you, providing you do not impede the performers. Feel free to sit on any of the chairs or furniture when not
in use, just be aware that you will eventually need to yield them to the performers. As seating is limited, we ask that priority be given to those of need. Your experience will be most heightened if hands are free so travel light and take advantage of our complimentary coat/bag check upon entrance to the club.

Enjoy!
