"All Jazzed Up" Art Reception 

Friday, August 27, 2021 / 7PM - 9PM

Artist Rebecca Ross has lived and worked in the Reading area for the past 28 years. She is a studio artist at GoggleWorks Center for the Arts.  For the past three years her artwork has focused on musical performances in the Reading area.  Rebecca is an expressionistic  colorist.  The challenge of the series has been making figurative sketches on-site and further refining them into detailed, full-color paintings and drawings.   Many works are based on performances at Reading's Jazz Fest and Blues Fest.

Dates:  August 4 through August 30, 2021

 

Public Reception:  Friday, August 27, 2021 7 to 9 p.m.

The Amish Project  

Friday, September 17 - 7:30PM

Saturday, September 18 - 7:30PM

Sunday, September 19 - 3:00PM

The Amish Project, directed by John Gancar, is a fictional exploration of the 2006 Nickel Mines schoolhouse shooting in Lancaster Pennsylvania. It explores the Amish community and the path of forgiveness and compassion forged in its wake. The play, which was first produced at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2008, was originally performed by the author as a solo piece. The WCR will be producing the ensemble edition with eight well known and talented local actors. 

The Amish Project is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc a Concord Theatricals Company.
