Connections: Diane Fox | Beauvais Lyons

Downtown Huntsville June 27 – September 27, 2015 This new series is focused on regional contemporary artists with shared sensibilities.

Lyons creates exquisitely crafted lithographs that parody the pedantic scientific prints of the nineteenth century and hint at new truths. Organized by HMA.

Performing Arts & Film Hollywood, 1939, and mogul David O. Selznick has just shut down production on the most eagerly anticipated movie in history, Gone With The Wind, scrapping the script and sacking the director. Hollywood is abuzz.

With his reputation on the line, and nothing but peanuts and bananas to sustain them, Selznick locks the three collaborators in his office, and a marathon creative session begins. Come see Moonlight and Magnolias, starring George Kobler, Joel Yalowitz, Brian Beck, and Amy Landreneau! July 24-26, July 30 - August 1 and August 6-8.
