Gallery Information: “We Are The Simulacrum” with the following artist: Jeremy Sims, Lauren Griffin, Samantha McCurdy, Justin Rothshank, Rhiannon Ewing James, Aleksander Bohnak, and Bethany Rusen.

More images have been created in the last ten years than in the entirety of human history. This startling fact has been made possible by a proliferation of technology that has been made image creation easier and more readily available to an ever-widening population. It is clear that we are moving through a world that is intensely, overwhelmingly visual, and we believe  that as visual artist coming of age in this time we have a unique understanding of this visual culture and a responsibily to interpret and critique it.

These Artist draw together working with familiar pop culture images or with objects of potent symbolic meaning.They strove for diversity of content and materiality, while at the same time identifying a common sensitivity to how these artist dealt withh images and symbols. Come by the Chesapeake Art Center and view their work. It’s something you don’t want to miss!


Pasadena Theatre Company Presents “A Christmas Carol”

Friday, December 6 and 13, 2013 at 8:00pm

Saturday, Decemeber 7 and 14, 2013 at 8:00pm

Sunday, December 8 and 15, 2013 at 3:00pm

Pasadena Theatre Company is renewing its own holiday tradition of presenting “A Christmas Carol” for a total of six performances at Chesapeake Arts Center.

“Set in Victorian London, “A Christmas Carol” tells the story of stingy merchant Scrooge, who chases carolers away in the plays opening scene and in another Christmas Eve scene counts the number of coals his beleaguered clerk, Bob Cratchit, burns to take the bitter chill from his office.

Dickens depicts the abuses of industrialization, including merchants’ greed and inhumane working conditions, with children being forced into harsh labor and deprived of education.

The message of “A Christmas Carol” is that miserly Scrooge is redeemable as he learns the lessons taught by visiting spirits of past, present and future Christmases, undergoing a transformation that enables him to celebrate the holiday. In the process, Scrooge also learns how to live the other 364 days of the year and realizes that his miserliness may have deprived and impoverished him as much as it has others.”

PTC will be offering a beautiful Christmas concert prior to the production under the direction of David Merrill. What a fabulous way to jump-start your holiday season with not only a concert but a fabulous production of “A Christmas Carol”.  We sincerely hope that you will join us in the festivities by attending this year’s Holiday Classic!

Oh, Boy, It’s Christmas

Saturday, December 21, 2013

8pm in Studio 194 Theatre


Buddy Holly and the Crickets never made a Christmas album. But we started thinking – what would it have been like if Buddy had recorded holiday tunes? Hence, OH BOY! It’s Christmas. The show isn’t ALL yuletide fare, about half is our favorite OH BOY! rockabilly/tex-mex classics with the other half being holiday fare done in a way that’ll make you say OH BOY!
