“Contrast” Gallery Underground Art Exhibition in July
Dates: July 1-31, 2020
No opening reception this month due to health safety regulations
Gallery Underground presents Contrast, on view during the month of July. There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast, goes a quote by Charles Dickens. Slowly emerging from sheltering at home, artists have submitted works that create drama and command attention through the use of contrast, both in color and subject. The show features works in a variety of media including mixed media, paintings, sculpture, wood, glass, and ceramics.

West Side Story @ Thomas Jefferson Community Theatre
Jul 17 – Jul 26 all-day
West Side Story @ Thomas Jefferson Community Theatre

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is transported to 20th century New York City as two young, idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence, and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching, and relevant musical dramas of our time. Dance and sing to favorite numbers including “Maria,” “America,” and more!

We recommend this production for ages 10 and older.
