New American Theater Presents: 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
<www.newamericantheater.org>

F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C! - That's the only way to spell this smash-hit musical comedy! The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is the story of how six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. This hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicles the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award-winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a roller coaster of music and fun.

Pastels are Not Subdued at the Dunedin Fine Art Center

If your definition of pastel, includes the idea of hues that are pale or soft in color, three exhibits opening May 13th at the Dunedin Fine Art Center might have your changing your vocabulary.

The Pastel Society of Tampa Bay has organized its fifth exhibit entitled Possibilities in Pastels V. This Southeastern U.S. juried exhibition features works from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North & South Carolina, as well as from members of regional pastels societies from throughout the region. The exhibit, judged and juried by internationally- known Master Pastelist, Doug Dawson offers over 65 contemporary pastel works.

Mr. Dawson will also offer a 3-day workshop on May 12, 13 & 14. The workshop will combine both studio landscape and plein air instruction highlighting: artistic technique, thumbnail sketches, composition, color usage, texture and depth. There will be time dedicated to demonstrations, individual attention and group critiques.

DFAC is thrilled to offer an exhibition of Master Pastelist and beloved DFAC faculty member Brooke Allison. Brooke Allison: A Retrospective, shows her life's work as never seen before-drawings, paintings and pastels spanning over 40 years of creative study.

The third exhibition, You Are Here: Pastel Artists of DFAC, features superb pastel works of DFAC's faculty and students.

Where: Florida Holocaust Museum
Saturday, June 25, 2011
The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes
On view through Sun., Aug. 28, 2011
This exhibition is a collection of the best works of art from children's art competitions of the Terezin Memorial's Education Department in the Czech Republic. Its title indicates that the paintings are very special because the artists are young, 11-17 years old. As one views the particular paintings, it is seen that despite their youth, the children know exactly how to choose the subject to depict the theme of the Holocaust accurately, what color to use to express certain atmosphere and mood, and how to make the artwork more interesting. Although they are young, they try to look at the Holocaust events without averting their eyes.
The paintings of The Holocaust Through Czech Children's Eyes follow a line, and this line is like a narration to a very sad story. The story of lost childhood, lost toys, lost mothers and fathers, lost families, lost freedom - almost all of the tragedies are described here. Despite all the terror, one can visualize a small glimmer of hope hidden in the pictures, hope actually being the theme of the last painting.
