In The Lyceum Gallery Local Theatre Artists : Artist Reception
Monday, November 4 - Saturday, December 7
All over the theatre scene in San Diego, the technical craftspeople are creating magic - building exotic scenery, coaxing a mood with light and sound, evoking a time and place with the detail of period costumes. Actors take their bows as the skilled craftsmen and women toil on, unseen but driven by pride in their work and a passion to create. Free from the desires of producers and directors, what artistic visions do these artisans personally cherish? This exhibit of Paintings, Sculpture, Photography and Installation Art represents the personal artistic expression of the unsung heroes of San Diego theatre. Carpenters, Electricians, Technicians and Seamstresses by day, muses and creative innovators by night. A one-of-a-kind exhibit curated by HERBERT SIGUENZA and KRISTIN FLORES.
