Upcoming Fine Arts Events At PJC

Published or Revised March 28, 2018


Shifting Sights / Shifting Sites

PJC Department of Art
January 26 - February 23 , 2018, Exhibit Reception February 13, 4 - 6 p.m.

The Foyer Gallery brings together two artists working in photography and painting: Caroline Roberts and Lane Cooper. Roberts is based in Houston and works in alternative photography processes such as cyanotype, using landscape as metaphor. Her work does not represent a single location or time but is a metaphor for place, thinking about the way that landscapes form and change, our traces on its surface, and our complicated relationship to the natural world. Cooper is based in Cleveland, Ohio and develops her paintings from photographic sources. As one comes closer to the surface, there is a high degree of tactility and the substance of the paint become more evident while the image falls away. The exhibition is open from Jan. 26 to Feb. 23, during regular building hours: Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., and Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The Feb. 13 reception will be held in the Foyer Gallery in the Art Building located on the southeast corner of the Paris Junior College campus.

Noises Off!

PJC Department of Drama
Thursday-Saturday, March 1-3, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 4 at 2:30 p.m.
Ray E. Karrer Theater

Called the funniest farce ever written, "Noises Off" presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearsing a flop called "Nothing's On." Doors slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play.
Tickets $15, $10 for senior citizens and high school students with ID, or free with current PJC ID.

Spring Choir Concert

PJC Department of Music
April 3, 7 p.m., J. Emory Shaw Recital Hall, Music Building
