The Aliens  
Stage West - The Aliens
Performance: May 6 through June 4, 2017
By Annie Baker
"Looking at the sun helps you sneeze." Just a typical piece of life-advice from KJ, one of a pair of disaffected yet engaging slackers we meet in Annie Baker's gentle, touching, and funny Obie Award winner The Aliens, beginning a 5-week run on Thursday, May 4 at Stage West. KJ and Jasper have been hanging out in the employee break area behind a Vermont coffee shop for ages-it's where they discuss music, failed relationships, Bukowski, and, well…life. Then their territory is invaded one day by Evan, an awkward seventeen-year-old new employee...

Between the Lines: Gego as Printmaker  
Amon Carter Museum-Between the Lines:Gego as Printmaker
Exhibition: February 7, 2017 - August 6, 2017
From zigzags and curves to diagonals and scribbles, this small exhibition of prints by abstract artist Gego (1912–1994) celebrates the vibrant diversity of line. While primarily known as a kinetic sculptor, Gego explored the printing process's potential for creating intricate linear patterns while working at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1966. Drawn from the Amon Carter's collection, these richly saturated lithographs reflect Gego's interest in the intersection between line and space. Her choice of dramatic blacks and reds, contrasted with the lightly colored paper sheet, highlights the images generated by negative space, or what Gego called, "the nothing between the lines."
