Michele J Garcia: Idiosyncratic @ The Kemp Center for the Arts
Feb 29 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Michele J Garcia is an artist who works with photography in a digital environment. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, Garcia tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations. Her photos are presented with the intention not to provide a realistic view but to identify where light, color and the environment are important.

Garcia’s work has been shown at Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Charles Adams Studio Project, Kell House Museum, Wichita Falls Art Association Gallery and 9th Street Studios.

Michele J Garcia lives in Wichita Falls Texas.


The NorthLight is on the first floor of The Kemp Center building located at 1300 Lamar, Wichita Falls, TX 76301.  Call for further information: 940-767-2787 or email galleries@artscouncilwf.org.

Traveling Exhibition: Negro Leagues Beisbol @ Museum of North Texas History
Feb 29 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is designated by the United States
Congress as America’s Home for Negro Leagues history. Through multi-media
displays, films, hundreds of photographs, artwork, and artifacts, the museum
teaches and preserves the history of African Americans in baseball from the
1800s through 1960s. The professional “Negro Leagues” were a series of
baseball business structures established in the face of segregation from Major
League Baseball. These leagues produced some of the greatest baseball players
in history, serving as the highest level of professional baseball available to
African Americans and Hispanic players in the United States from 1920-1960.

Negro Leagues Beisbol was developed by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
in 2014 to honor and explore the connections of African American baseball
history to Hispanic cultures, communities and countries. This is a deep, rich
history with origins in the late 1800s. The exhibition features profiles of
significant baseball players, a timeline of American and Hispanic baseball history,
and detailed baseball histories of several countries.

The Plays: 

 

The Miracle Worker by William Gibson presented by Hirschi Theatrical Society 

Directed by Brandi Walker 

“…this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water.”-Concord Theatricals 

Performance at 6pm 

 

The Tempest by William Shakespeare presented by WFHS Theatre 

One of Shakespeare’s last plays sent into a post-apocalyptic future where women rule as Matras, robots talk, and clones are still abominations. Sorceress Prospera was once one of those Matras, leading Milan, but a coup by her sister Antonia had her sent out and left for a dead on a desert island. Many years later, through pure luck, Antonia and the others who conspired against Prospera end up near the Island, and Prospera uses magic to have the ship crash. Now shipwrecked on the same Island, Prospera comes up with a.series of tricks and pranks to teach them a lesson and get back her Matrondom, and craziness ensues through this timeless classic..  

Adapted and Directed by Christopher Turner 

Performance at 7pm 

 

Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale presented by Rider Theatre Department 

“A moving, comical and eye-opening story of four young women fighting for education and self-determination against the larger backdrop of women’s suffrage. In Swale’s play, Tess Moffat and her fellow first years are determined to win the right to graduate from Girton College (the first college in Britain to admit women). But little do they anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them. The Girton girls study ferociously and match their male peers grade for grade. Yet, while the men graduate with degrees, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a ‘blue stocking’ – an unnatural, educated woman. As our story unfolds we watch each girl battle with the choice between love and knowledge and how that choice affects the rest of their lives.” -Nick Hern Books 

If you had to choose between love or knowledge, which would you choose? 

Directed by Tabitha Cahanin and Sarah Jarvis 

Performance at 8pm
