Since 1st Stage mounted its first production, the gallery has featured more than 60 artists! Twelve of those are featured in this anniversary exhibit, and each of their works was inspired or somehow connected to a particular play produced at 1st Stage over the last 10 years.
Deb Crerie, a founding artist of 1st Stage, created the gallery and mounted the first exhibition of her series; Yakku in Edo. Shown in the Gallery during The Suicide. Her series, Bud, Blossom: BOLD curated by Ivonne Chand O'Neal was shown in conjunction with The How and The Why. Maine Trail Shrine represents the production of Almost Maine, which was the first "in the round" play staged at 1st Stage and for which Deb Crerie and Kay Rzasa designed the props.
The contributing artists to the10th anniversary show include Lorrie Bouhaouala, Chica Brunsvold, Teresa Castracane, Jane Coonce, Deborah Conn, Jean Gill, Robin Harris, Susan Lamont, Elaine Nunnally, Terri Rea, and Theresa Wells Stifel.
Meet the artists at a reception on Sunday, February 25, 5:00-7:00
