June 2018 Featured Partner Events

Each month, we gather information about our Featured Partners  and their upcoming events in one spot so that it’s easy for you to see what’s coming up.  That spot is right here!

 

Unique HCAA Juried Artist Members’ Exhibit

The Birdie Gallery of HCAA, 5th & Cherry St., Noblesville                     
FREE!

Some may say artistic people are a little “different,” and this exhibit will give Juried Artist members the opportunity to display their Unique styles. Perhaps they see the world as abstract, perhaps they see the world as opposite to their personal vision, perhaps they just are a little off-center. Whatever the Juried Artist members display in this exhibit, the work will be FUN. This one-of-a-kind art exhibit continues through July 21.
Opening Reception: TBD, postponed due to renovations

Brighton Beach Memoirs
June 1-17, Fri. & Sat. at 8 p.m. and Sun. at 2 p.m.
The Belfry Theatre, Noblesville
$15 adults, $12 children 12 and under
Directed by James H. Williams. A dramatic Comedy by Neil Simon.
Fifteen-year old Eugene Jerome is desperately trying to uncover life’s mysteries, but his family keeps hiding the clues. Even so, he manages to keep his priorities – baseball and girls – firmly in order throughout Neil Simon’s hilarious play of his Broadway hit about growing up in Brooklyn during the late 1930’s. Life is definitely never dull with seven people living under the same roof. Dad works two jobs to make ends meet, older brother Stanley is eager to dispense sage advice, and Aunt Blanche tries to cope as a single parent. Brighton Beach Memoirs is a wonderful, semi-autobiographical comedy with heart, wit and hysterical insights into family life and growing up-just a little off-center. This production is rated PG-13 and may not be suitable for younger audiences.
Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Kristina is a Juried Artist Member of the Hamilton County Artists’ Association (HCAA) and also serves on the HCAA Board as VP of Programming. Additionally, she is an Artist Member of Nickel Plate Arts. Kristina has solo/duo exhibited, as well as had individual pieces in galleries throughout central Indiana.
