Wabash College Theater presents A Lie of the Mind
by Sam Shepard
8 p.m.—Ball Theater, Fine Arts Center
Tickets are required
 
Arguably our greatest living playwright, Sam Shepard’s impact on the American theater is both profound and enduring. His magnum opus, A Lie of the Mind, is a masterpiece of poetic and theatrical brilliance that looks unflinchingly at love and family in the West. It is a depiction of American life that is at once hallucinatory and dirt real.
 
February 28–April 8
Art Exhibit: Unveiled Layers: Exhibitions by Orie Shafer and Nhat Tran
Opening reception: Monday, February 28, 8–9:30 p.m.
Eric Dean Gallery, Fine Arts Center
Gallery Hours:  Monday–Friday 9 a.m.–5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–2 p.m.
 
Orie Shafer’s colorful, energy-filled hybrid paintings combine digital technology with the materials and methodology of traditional art. Shafer’s abstract work has a sense of landscape. His initial complex images originate as small glimpses from digital macro photographs, which provide the matrix for freehand application of oils, colored pencils and oil pastels. These small hybrid paintings are then redigitized for enlargement and overpainting again and again to produce large scale canvases.
 
Nhat Tran studied oil painting at the University of Fine Arts, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where she earned her BFA. After immigrating to the United States, Tran began to explore the ancient Asian art form of layered urushi (lacquerware). Urushi has been her primary medium of artistic expression since mastering its complex processes. Through non-traditional usage of urushi techniques, she achieves stunning visual effects unobtainable in other media. Her sense of esthetic embraces the Asian soul. Nhat Tran’s works are in numerous public and private collections including the Renwick Gallery, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Indianapolis Airport Authority, and Indiana State Museum.

Wabash College Theater presents Our Country’s Good
by Timberlake Wertenbaker
8 p.m.—Ball Theater, Fine Arts Center
Tickets are required
 
Australia 1789. A young married lieutenant is directing a rehearsal of the first play ever to be staged in that country. With only two copies of the text, a cast of convicts, and a leading lady scheduled to be hanged, conditions are hardly ideal. Winner of the Laurence Olivier Play of the Year Award in 1988, and many other major awards, Our Country’s Good premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1988 and opened on Broadway in 1991. “Rarely has the redemptive, transcendental power of theatre argued with such eloquence and passion.” Georgina Brown, Independent.
