Events for Friday, March 1, 2013

Andy Curlowe + Mark Slankard
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Opening reception
through April 13

Andy Curlowe and Mark Slankard, both recipients of Creative Workforce Fellowships, are the featured artists at Heights Arts’ gallery from March 1 through April 13.

Slankard’s evocative photographs from the Toplu Series capture the rapidly changing landscapes in Turkish suburbia, developments that Slankard began to document in 2008 after several years of travel to the country. His work reflects “landscape as a physical manifestation of those who live there, and their values and the power structures that basically shape the place.”

Curlowe’s paintings similarly explore themes of civilization and relationships between built environments and the contours of natural landscape. His paintings “confront the ever-changing relationship between these realms. Focused on suggestive landscape, my work is a fusion of curved lines and blurred contours of natural forms which counter the sharp geometry of industry and calculation. Whether in conflict or harmony, these works emphasize the power struggles between both worlds.”

“Stretch and Unwind” *FREE* Loving Hands Yoga
6:15 PM - 7:15 PM
Stretch and Unwind *FREE* Loving Hands Yoga - This Friday class is a perfect way to end the week. We combine basic yoga poses with deep stretching to help relax tired bodies and busy minds. This is a slow moving class, perfect for beginners as well as advanced yogis. We learn how to use bolsters and blocks to support us while we deepen into a comfortable stretch, and we also learn how to use our breathing to help deepen the stretches. These supported poses also give us an opportunity to practice methods for relaxing our minds and letting go of our to-do list. A great way to get rejuvenated for the weekend!

Disney's Jungle Book at Heights Youth Theatre
7:00 PM
directed by Treva Offutt
music directed by Joanna Li

DIG THAT CRAZY BEAT, MAN! The elephants are marching madly and the jungle is jumping with jazz in this exciting, HYT first! Raised by wolves, Mowgli must decide between the jungle he has always known, and the village just beyond. Mowgli journeys towards his decision through the help of some very colorful characters: protected by a parental panther, led astray by a sly snake, befriended by a laid-back bear, snatched by some swinging monkeys, and tracked by a terrifying tiger. Join Mowgli, Baloo, King Louie and the gang as they swing their way through zany adventures and avoid the ferocious Shere Khan in this Disney classic. With live action, hot music, acrobatic acting, and a mob of madcap puppets, we’ll go way beyond “The Bare Necessities”, to bring this crowd-pleasing musical to life for audiences of all ages.
