Michael Stowell "Freezer Burn"

October 2-27, 2017
Opening Reception on Thursday, October 5th from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery, FAC 135

"Freezer Burn" - Stowell is most interested in that which he does not know. "Slight oddities of the natural world catch my attention, the tree that grows out of a rock cliff or the branch that grows the wrong direction. I look at such phenomena, but I am not trying to recreate them. My attention is not to make objects that imitate but rather works that have a life of their own."

 We Won't Pay

We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay! by Dario Fo

October 27-November 4, 2017
Mainstage Production, Fine Arts Center Theatre, FAC 178
Directed by Mike Ricci

Written by Nobel Prize winning playwright Dario Fo, this laugh out-loud farce has been described as 'The Honeymooners meets I Love Lucy'. When the women of one town refuse to pay higher prices for their groceries, they start a protest, which starts a series of hilarious twists and turns for Antonia and her friend Margherita, who stay one step ahead of their husbands. Dario Fo has something to say about the government, labor practices, the health care system, religion, the police authorities, and economic disparity. There will be a food drive accompanying each performance. Ticket-holders are requested to bring in a non-perishable food item.

  • Friday, October 27, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
