Art

Blissful Ignorance

The Georgetown Art Center has revealed its newest exhibit, Blissful Ignorance. The show is an exhibit of graphite drawings by artist Mayuko Ono Gray that hybridizes traditional Japanese calligraphy with Western drawing practices and aesthetics. Traditional Asian art forms have often integrated word and image. Ms. Gray draws upon literary artifacts ranging from proverbs to poetry to influence her calligraphy and creates unique word images that are reflections on human nature and universal wisdom. The Art Center is currently open Saturdays only. Address is 816 South Main Street. Through September 26

 

Theater

Steel Magnolias

Steel Magnolias is coming to the Georgetown Palace Theatre this fall as an outdoor production. Truvy’s salon is in Chinquapin, Louisiana’s go-to place for a beauty fix with a hearty side of gossip. Along with her overeager assistant Annelle, Truvy pampers her small-town clients with hairdos, manicures and all kinds of unsolicited advice. Anybody who’s anybody is a regular: There’s the doting M’Lynn and her soon-to-be-married daughter Shelby, the moody Ouiser and the well-to-do widow Clairee. Through witty banter and wisecracks, this hodgepodge group of women form friendships as strong as steel, friendships they lean on when tragedy strikes. The play by Robert Harling is directed for the Palace by Emily Taylor. The show features 2 separate all-star casts, each performing half of the scheduled performances. Steel Magnolias will be held outside in the Palace Courtyard, behind the theater. Performances will start after sunset. Groups will be socially distanced from one another and masks are required. Ticket prices are from $24-$34. The Palace Courtyard is behind the Palace at 810 S. Austin Ave. October 9 - November 8
