Black Productions Presents: Steel Magnolias @ Capitol Theatre
May 25 @ 7:30 pm – May 28 @ 5:00 pm

Black Productions is back with our fifth offering to the Kootenays! Robert Harling’s comedy-drama STEEL MAGNOLIAS, will run May 25th-28th, 2017 at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson BC.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS focuses on the camaraderie of six Southern women who talk, gossip, needle and harangue each other through the best of times- and comfort and repair one another through the worst. The play is alternately hilarious and touching with six female characters that are delicate as magnolias yet as strong as steel.

STEEL MAGNOLIAS is directed by Heather Shippit and showcases a powerhouse cast featuring Lisel Forst (M’Lynn), Molly Strachan (Shelby), Pat Henman (Ousier), Patti Humphries (Clairee), Jenna Skidmore (Truvy) and Krista Lynch (Annelle). Costumes are designed by Kyla Hurst and sets are by Eric Galbraith.

Tickets are available at the Capitol Theatre box office (421 Victoria St), at www.capitoltheatre.bc.ca or by calling 250-352-6363.

7th Annual Oxygen Art Market @ Oxygen Art Centre
May 27 @ 2:00 am – 5:00 am

The 7th Annual Oxygen Art Market will take place on

May 26, 27, 28, 2017

Hours:
Friday 7-10pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 10am – 5pm

320 Vernon Street (back alley entrance) in Nelson

Every year, the Oxygen Art Market attracts hundreds of art-lovers to the Oxygen Art Centre and it’s no wonder! Over 40 established and emerging Kootenay artists submit their paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and other 2D work for this weekend-long event. The work is hung “Salon” style, in the manner of the Académie des Beaux–Arts exhibitions in Paris at the turn of the century, where work was hung on every available wall space from ceiling to floor. With over 150 pieces on display, the hanging is a major undertaking for the volunteer committee, and it makes for a striking event.

Oxygen Art Market is an opportunity to experience first-hand the breadth of work made by West Kootenay artists, and to get yourself a piece of original, locally-made art! With fifty percent of the sales given to the Oxygen Art Centre, the Art Market has become an important fundraiser for the Centre. Oxygen is governed by a collective of professional visual artists, filmmakers, theatre artists and writers. As one of Canada’s 100 or so artist-run centres, Oxygen shares the common mandate to provide an alternative forum for contemporary art, outside of commercial constraints and interests, while recognizing artists through the payment of professional fees. Oxygen Art Centre gratefully acknowledges the support for this event from Columbia Basin Trust and our Business for the Arts sponsors; Hall Printing, Nelson Star and Juice FM, and organizational support from BC Arts Council and Province of BC.

2017 Oxygen Art Market artists include:

Brent Bukowski, Natasha Smith, Carol Wallace, Susan Andrews Grace, Brian Kalbfleisch, Deborah Thompson, Yvonne Munroe, Micheal Graham, Carol Reynolds, Lindsay Dew, Rachel Yoder, Sally Johnston, Boukje Elzinga, Erica Konrad, Stephanie Kellett, Courtenay Anderson, John Cooper, Kiera Zaslove, Sergio Santos, Marilyn McCombe, Heather MacAskill, Sue Parr, Nicole Hobbs, Deirdre McLaughlin, Kate Bridger, Jennifer Lount-Taylor, Selda Canoglu, John Stegman, Michelle Colley, Rick Foulger, Karen Guilbaullt
