From Press Release
The Bath House Cultural Center presents Art Beyond the Stage, an art exhibition featuring a collection of renderings, costumes, art, and other theater objects created in recent years by regional designers for Dallas theatrical productions. The exhibition, which is presented in conjunction with the 11th annual Festival of Independent Theatres, will be on display July 11-August 8, 2009. An opening reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, July 11, 2009 from 7 to 9 p.m. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public.
Applause and cheers by delighted theater patrons often aim to express satisfaction for a well-acted, well-directed play. Indeed, actors and directors seem to receive a great amount of recognition during a theater production. A theater connoisseur, however, is quick to point out that the success of a theater show is heavily dependent on the collective vision, talent, and drive of an ensemble of artists, technicians, and stagecraft masters. Art Beyond the Stage shines the spotlight on the world of theater stagecraft and applauds regional theater artists and designers by displaying a collection of set designs, props, costumes and other scenic art.
The DFW Metroplex is privileged to have a large number of highly talented, award-winning theater designers who have collaborated with regional theater companies to create exceptionally memorable stage experiences. Some of the designers featured in this exhibition include: Jacob Climer, Bruce Coleman, Barbara Cox, Christina Dickson, Clare Floyd DeVries, Rodney G. Dobbs, Wade Giampa, Bob McVay, Jennifer Owen, Andy Redmon, Claudia Stephens, Giva Taylor, Aaron Patrick Turner, and Randel Wright, among others.
