TWU student art shown at University of Dallas
Students from the Texas Woman’s University School of Arts collaborated with two art history seniors at the University of Dallas. The result is an exhibit, “Through a Different Lens: Looking at the Ordinary From a Unique Perspective.”
This show features undergraduate and graduate work from TWU students, as curated by UD students Monica Holman and Rachel Hiser. Don’t be fooled by the word “lens” in the title, because paintings figure prominently into this exhibit.
The exhibit closes at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
The exhibit is in the Upper Gallery in the Painting and Printmaking Building, in Haggerty Art Village on the University of Dallas campus.
Harris’ ‘Lady Revealed’ to be staged in Dallas
Playwright Andrew B. Harris, a member of the theater arts faculty at the University of North Texas, will see his latest play get a second staging.
The Lady Revealed had its premiere on the UNT University Theatre stage last year. The play will open for a limited workshop run in Dallas this spring.
The Lady Revealed tells the story of Oxford historian A.L. Rowse and his controversial discovery of the identity of William Shakespeare’s mistress, the “Dark Lady” of the Bard’s sonnets. Using the casebooks of Elizabethan astrologer Simon Forman, Rowse discovered a woman who in many ways epitomized the qualities found in Shakespearean heroines. This Faustian tale plays out in The Lady Revealed.
Jac Alder, founding director of Theatre Three in Dallas, heads a cast of professional actors, which includes three UNT undergraduate students: Caroline Dubberly, Evan Scott and Kasey Tackett. The workshop production will be directed by George Boyd.
This workshop will culminate in two free performances of The Lady Revealed at 7 p.m. March 18 and 19 at Theatre Three.
