Twists and Turns

Twists and Turns

Accomplice, written by Rupert Holmes, is a whodunnit shell game that switches intended victims and motivated murderers at every turn. Just when you think you know who is doing what to whom, the tables turn and a new scenario and context are introduced.

Lush strokes

Two new exhibits, “DeGrazia Paints the Jungle” and “DeGrazia Downtown,” feature never-before-seen paintings by Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia.

Drawing on Experience Phoenix artists at Bernal Gallery honor immigrants in bright and bold ink paintings

Artistic Benevolence, is a dazzling suite of 15 oversized paintings, mostly in colored ink on paper. Bold and stripped down—like brothers Gabriel and Isaac Fortoul's outdoor murals—the works picture simple figures, drawn in black lines and colored a flat white.

Ring of Fire

America is suffering through an openly racist period right now, but the forgotten histories of African Americans are finally being told, by scholars, by journalists—and by artists, like the team that brought us The Royale. And new ATC director Sean Daniels deserves kudos for choosing this provocative play as the first show of his tenure.

Contested Terrain

An architect-turned-artist who specializes in “reimagining the environment we inhabit,” put together a two-day event that mixes performances with workshops and talks.

When the Moon Comes to Oracle

GLOW: A Nighttime Art Experience, the brainchild of artist and ranch owner Sharon Holnback, annually transforms the Triangle L into a luminous arts wonderland.

Course Correction

Most people have choices in their lives that, upon reflection, have the potential to change its course; which college to attend, what career path to follow, who to spend their lives with. In the case of the play Now and Then by Sean Grennan, playing at Invisible Theatre, this theme plays out in showing us a couple who consider changing the direction of their relationship, but to what end?
