Discovering the Chattahoochee Valley: Silk Paintings by René Shoemakerdetail +

The Columbus Museum map map

Sun., Aug. 23, 2015 – Sun., Jul. 31, 2016

In August, artist René Shoemaker will transform the Galleria with an exhibition of large-scale silk paintings, on view until the following July. Shoemaker, a long-time resident of Athens, Georgia, creates hand-painted silk works that celebrate the distinctive character of a city or place. For her exhibition at The Columbus Museum, the artist has created site-specific works about the Chattahoochee Valley after visiting here and immersing herself in its sights, sounds, and smells and making preliminary sketches of buildings, spaces, and people. Shoemaker solicited responses from the Columbus-area community through social media to decide which buildings and locations could be used in the paintings. The silk paintings on view in the exhibition thus truly capture the characteristics that make the Chattahoochee Valley unique. Shoemaker explains that the project was “about discovering what makes the city and valley unique to its citizens and visitors. What patterns in the landscape are distinguishable, and how can I tease out the beauty of these sites great and small? What memories are held by the people there; what locations do they like to visit the most? Where are the neighborhoods they drive through without really seeing, and where do they like to meet with friends? What do the children remember as they grow up in Columbus?” Shoemaker’s medium of hand-painted silk has dye applied directly to the material. For this project, she used silk twill, a midweight silk that billows gently as the air moves. Shoemaker received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia and a degree in library sciences (M.L.I.S.) from the University of South Carolina. She lives in the woods in Oconee County, Georgia in a handmade octagon house.

Discovering the Chattahoochee Valley: Silk Paintings by René Shoemakerdetail +

The Columbus Museum map map

Sun., Aug. 23, 2015 – Sun., Jul. 31, 2016

In August, artist René Shoemaker will transform the Galleria with an exhibition of large-scale silk paintings, on view until the following July. Shoemaker, a long-time resident of Athens, Georgia, creates hand-painted silk works that celebrate the distinctive character of a city or place. For her exhibition at The Columbus Museum, the artist has created site-specific works about the Chattahoochee Valley after visiting here and immersing herself in its sights, sounds, and smells and making preliminary sketches of buildings, spaces, and people. Shoemaker solicited responses from the Columbus-area community through social media to decide which buildings and locations could be used in the paintings. The silk paintings on view in the exhibition thus truly capture the characteristics that make the Chattahoochee Valley unique. Shoemaker explains that the project was “about discovering what makes the city and valley unique to its citizens and visitors. What patterns in the landscape are distinguishable, and how can I tease out the beauty of these sites great and small? What memories are held by the people there; what locations do they like to visit the most? Where are the neighborhoods they drive through without really seeing, and where do they like to meet with friends? What do the children remember as they grow up in Columbus?” Shoemaker’s medium of hand-painted silk has dye applied directly to the material. For this project, she used silk twill, a midweight silk that billows gently as the air moves. Shoemaker received her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia and a degree in library sciences (M.L.I.S.) from the University of South Carolina. She lives in the woods in Oconee County, Georgia in a handmade octagon house.

“One of the great New York night-outs!” -New York Post The quintessential backstage musical comedy classic, 42nd Street is the song and dance fable of Broadway with an American Dream story and includes some of the greatest songs ever written, such as “We’re In The Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off To Buffalo,” “Dames,” “I Only Have Eyes For You” and of course “42nd Street.” Based on a novel by Bradford Ropes and Busby Berkeley’s 1933 movie, 42nd Street tells the story of a starry-eyed young dancer named Peggy Sawyer who leaves her Allentown home and comes to New York to audition for the new Broadway musical Pretty Lady. When the star breaks her ankle, Peggy takes over and becomes a star. With a book by Michael Stewart and Mark Bramble, music by Harry Warren and lyrics by Al Dubin, this sparkling new production will be directed by co-author Mark Bramble and choreographed by Randy Skinner, the team who staged the 2001 Tony Award-winning Best Musical Revival.
