Events for Friday, February 2, 2018

Spotlight: Sharon Grossman
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
A selection of new works by ceramist Sharon Grossman opens in the Heights Arts spotlight gallery on February 2. While the Cleveland Heights artist is best known for her vessels, this installation presents a suite of pieces that are all meant to be wall-hung. Many of the works employ a technique known as "pique assiette" that uses broken shards of dinnerware to create mosaic designs. In a previous creative life, Grossman was a woodworker and furniture maker, and that background informs her approach to ceramics. Join Heights Arts for an opening reception on Feb. 2, 6-9 p.m. On view through March 18.
Heights Arts, 2175 Lee Rd. Cleveland Heights OH 44118

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Dobama Theatre presents the Cleveland produced premiere of GROUNDED by George Brant, directed by Alice Reagan.

An ace fighter pilot’s career in the sky is ended early due to an unexpected pregnancy. Reassigned to operate military drones from a windowless trailer outside Las Vegas, she hunts terrorists by day and returns home to her family each night. As the pressure to track a high-profile target mounts, the boundaries begin to blur between the desert in which she lives and the one she patrols half a world away. GROUNDED is an epic poem that crafts an experience that is timely, human, and vital.
Winner of the Smith Prize for Political Theatre. GROUNDED features Anjanette Hall as the Pilot.

The show runs for 90 minutes with no intermission. Contains adult language and light effects.
