    1. ART EXHIBIT: “Seeing Christ in the Darkness: Georges Rouault as Graphic Artist” at Apostles Anglican Church
      8:30 am – 12:30 pm

      Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the few modern artists whose work was clearly religious, according to Bill Dyrness, Professor of Theology and Culture in Los Angeles. But even though Roault was a life-long Roman Catholic, his work was resisted by the church for much of life, due its dark nature. The graphic art in this exhibition, which was created at the height of the artist’s powers, reveals how deeply the artist identified with peoples’ sufferings. This exhibit focuses on Rouault as printmaker, as it was especially in his graphic work that his religious vision took shape. The exhibit includes eighteen pieces from the “Miserere” series, five from “Fleurs du Mal I,” several colored pieces from “The Passion and Fleurs du Mal III,” along with two signed works and several other prints. The exhibit will be on display Feb. 18 – May 15, 2015. Gallery hours:  Tues. – Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sunday Services 8:30 & 10:55 a.m. or by appointment.

    1. ART EXHIBIT: “Seeing Christ in the Darkness: Georges Rouault as Graphic Artist” at Apostles Anglican Church
      8:30 am – 12:30 pm

      Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the few modern artists whose work was clearly religious, according to Bill Dyrness, Professor of Theology and Culture in Los Angeles. But even though Roault was a life-long Roman Catholic, his work was resisted by the church for much of life, due its dark nature. The graphic art in this exhibition, which was created at the height of the artist’s powers, reveals how deeply the artist identified with peoples’ sufferings. This exhibit focuses on Rouault as printmaker, as it was especially in his graphic work that his religious vision took shape. The exhibit includes eighteen pieces from the “Miserere” series, five from “Fleurs du Mal I,” several colored pieces from “The Passion and Fleurs du Mal III,” along with two signed works and several other prints. The exhibit will be on display Feb. 18 – May 15, 2015. Gallery hours:  Tues. – Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sunday Services 8:30 & 10:55 a.m. or by appointment.

Artistic Director Norbe Risco uses a cast of nearly sixty dancers in this production highlighting his choreographic creativity and his dancers’ technique and style. Risco crafted his version of this story in 2012, developing a unique musical composition including Adams, Mahler and Strauss among others, to give audiences their spin on the classic love story. Due to popular demand, the production will return to the Opera House stage. In the story, Belle is an intelligent young woman living with her father, Marcel, the inventor. The egotistical Gustav is determined to marry Belle, but she has no interest in him. Her life changes drastically as she saves her father taking his place as prisoner in the Beast’s castle, after finding his scarf on a treacherous journey through the dark forest. Enchanted characters such as Lumiere, Mrs. Teapot, Mr. Horlodge and Ms. Featherduster are portrayed by KBT’s professional company members. Young academy students grace the stage as teacups, plates, silverware, napkins and more, welcoming Belle to their home. Villagers, Gustav and his sidekick, Beauty’s father Marcel, tavern folk and fearless wolves complete this high-energy cast. Principal dancer Kelsey Van Tine will dance the role of Belle while Allan Rivas is the Beast and principal dancer Jorge Barani will perform as both the high-leaping Gustav and as the enchanted candlestick, Lumiere. Tim Lamm, of the Vintage Dance Society, will portray Marcel. Custom built, three-dimensional costumes complement the multimedia scene changes created by Cincinnati visual artist, Mark Patsfall. Audience members are taken to and from the Beast’s home at the magical castle and everywhere in between: the village, Marcel’s home, the tavern and the dark forest. Gustav and the Beast vie for Belle’s love and duel as the ballet concludes. The Beast ultimately triumphs, professing his love for Belle by giving her the magical rose which returns him to human form after true love’s transformation. Advanced students from Kentucky Ballet theatre perform as wolves. Guest dancers from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati are tavern men.

    2. ART EXHIBIT: “Seeing Christ in the Darkness: Georges Rouault as Graphic Artist” at Apostles Anglican Church
      8:30 am – 12:30 pm

      Georges Rouault (1871-1958) was one of the few modern artists whose work was clearly religious, according to Bill Dyrness, Professor of Theology and Culture in Los Angeles. But even though Roault was a life-long Roman Catholic, his work was resisted by the church for much of life, due its dark nature. The graphic art in this exhibition, which was created at the height of the artist’s powers, reveals how deeply the artist identified with peoples’ sufferings. This exhibit focuses on Rouault as printmaker, as it was especially in his graphic work that his religious vision took shape. The exhibit includes eighteen pieces from the “Miserere” series, five from “Fleurs du Mal I,” several colored pieces from “The Passion and Fleurs du Mal III,” along with two signed works and several other prints. The exhibit will be on display Feb. 18 – May 15, 2015. Gallery hours:  Tues. – Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sunday Services 8:30 & 10:55 a.m. or by appointment. An Art Talk in March will be announced soon;  for more information call 859-245-1318.
