  1. Kim Cadmus Owens | Main Gallery

    January 22, 2024, 8:00 AM - March 16, 2024, 5:00 PM

    Main Gallery

    Kim Cadmus Owens grew up in Texas, studied fine art on both coasts and Japan, and returned to Dallas in 2006. Upon her arrival, she faced a city evolved. Recollecting Dallas architecture and other environs, her paintings and drawings convey a moment of retrospect and depict vernacular spots hovering between past and present. Owens recently stated, “Drawing is a materialization of my thoughts, memories, dreams, and even nightmares that allows me to process and consider their significance. Subjects that repeatedly enter my mind or that appear while I move through landscapes are the catalysts for all of my work.“

  3. Mesquite Arts Theatre presents " She Loves Me"

    February 24, 2024, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
    @

    Black Box Theatre inside the Mesquite Arts Center

    She Loves Me is a euphoric romantic-ish comedy with a soaring score. Amalia and Georg work together at a modest Hungarian parfumerie, and have disliked each other from the very beginning. He thinks she’s stuck up, and she thinks he’s arrogant and mean. But each rapturously writes to a lonely-hearts pen pal when the workday is done, and it doesn’t take long for the audience to see that they’re in love without realizing it. Inevitably through some of the most iconic songs in the musical theatre canon ("Vanilla Ice Cream", "She Loves Me", "Will He Like Me?"), Georg and Amalia discover the truth as well and rejoice in their love for each other at the story’s sweet and musically delightful conclusion.
