MEET THE ARTISTS!

New Mexico artist Alan Paine Radebaugh will be at the Lincoln Center to discuss his Ghost of Sea series. Join us for the reception on Friday, January 11th at 5:00 p.m., and stay for the Gallery Talk at 7:00 p.m. in the Founder's Room. Radebaugh's large scale paintings depict the North American Great Plains as influenced by ancient inland seas. Waves of tall grasses and oceans of scrub sage grace these beautiful and haunting geographies.

Then on February 7th at 6:30 p.m., Terry Schupbach-Gordon will come for a Gallery Talk about her prints and hand-made books featured in the exhibit Bent Like a River. There will be a meet and greet reception before the Gallery Talk at 5:00 p.m. With Terry being a professional story-teller, it's sure to be an interesting and entertaining evening. Hailing from North Carolina, Terry will exhibit woodcuts, intaglio prints, and hand-made artist books that examine and celebrate the strength and fragility of the human condition.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays, 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Saturdays, noon – 6:00 p.m. The Gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays, and is open for most evening theatre performances. Admission is free.

Age-old Tale Gets Fresh New Look



Disney's Beauty and the Beast, playing four lavish and magical performances February 21-23, is indeed "a tale as old as time." This classic story--of a beautiful girl, Belle, who is first repelled by, then attracted to a gruff yet big-hearted Beast--has been visually re-imagined for this new national tour.

After the success of the Oscar nominated 1991 animated movie, Disney soon started working on the stage adaptation. The stage version opened on Broadway in 1994 and became the seventh longest running production on Broadway.

Rob Roth, who directed the Broadway premiere and is back at the helm for the new tour, says that the "story is about seeing past the exterior of a person and into his or her heart." What's fresh about the tour, he adds, is not just the timeless moral but a new approach to the visuals.

Stan Meyer, the scenic designer both for the Broadway version and for the new production, says that the original staging was, essentially, the 1991 movie made live. The new production is "a departure from that." He explains: "The new version is an illuminated manuscript come to life."

Audiences will delight in the eye-popping storybook shapes and colors that Meyer and the other designers have re-imagined. The production's look, adds Meyer, "is more evocative of whimsy and very, very romantic."

Young Stars Set to Shine

The 68th annual Stars of Tomorrow Youth Talent Show, presented by the Kiwanis Club of Fort Collins, will be held Saturday, February 2 in the Performance Hall. This year, performers are competing to win a grand prize of $1,000 cash. In addition, the 1st place winner in each age category (elementary, middle, and high school) wins $200. Audience members are encouraged to participate by voting, via cell phone, for The People's Choice Award and there will also be a special performance by Wendy Woo.

Competition to get into the show this year was tough with 115 kids competing to fill only 21 spots. Previous shows have attracted audiences of over 600 people and boosted everything from jam skating and martial arts to original songs, rock n' roll and the classical violin.

The Stars of Tomorrow is a national and internationally recognized youth talent competition. Nationally/Internationally known folk singer Judy Collins and classical violinist Eugene Fodor have won past Colorado "Stars of Tomorrow" competitions.

The Stars of Tomorrow program was designed to give elementary, junior high and senior high school students an opportunity to perform before a live audience. It's the perfect evening out for the entire family. You don't want to miss what the youth of Fort Collins have to offer.
