Calligraphy for Beginners
January 13, Tuesday
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Sally Wightkin of the Calligraphy Guild of Pittsburgh will host two informal calligraphy demonstrations in the Gallery Space. Sally will write out your name in calligraphy, answer questions and provide information if you are interested in the further study of calligraphy. There will be resources available for your perusal and some calligraphy tools to try. This isn't a formal workshop or lecture, just a chance to stop in for a few minutes and see what different types of calligraphy pens can do and perhaps pique your interest in further study.
Readers Theater Presents: The Cocktail Hour
January 21, Wednesday
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Please join Readers Theater Presents for a special performance of The Cocktail Hour by A. R. Gurney. John, a playwright, is visiting his parents and sister in a WASP enclave in upstate New York. John has written a comedy called 'The Cocktail Hour', which includes characters based on his family. He wants their approval before he goes ahead with the proposed production, which deals with the archaic rituals and beliefs of the socially and financially privileged. The obligatory family secrets come tumbling out, with an autocratic father and a miffed sister led by John's mother Ann, who polices her emotional boundaries with the help of a few too many cocktails.
