  • MassoniArt presents “SCALE – A Matter of Perspective”

    Exhibit Dates: January 19 – March 4, 2018 Opening Reception: Saturday, January 20, 11-4 pm Chestertown First Friday: Friday, February 2, 5-8pm and Friday, March 2, 5-8 pm Why does an artist choose a particular scale when creating work? Will it be large or small, or somewhere in between? How is this related to the way we measure the importance of things, i.e., on a scale of one to ten or by concepts such as greater or lesser? The work of many of the artists we are showcasing reflects significant environmental concerns, concerns shared by many other disciplines worldwide. The scale of the problems we contemplate is enormous, but artists are bound by physical realities to a relatively small physical scale. Can something very small still convey a “greater” meaning? Artists bring their individual skills and creativity to provide a response to this question. Transforming perceptions of the world and our place in it serves as a catalyst and a vast canvas for the voice of the artist. Blake Conroy, Heidi Fowler, Karen Hubacher, Michael Kahn, Alessandra Manzotti, Grace Mitchell, Greg Mort, Jon Mort, Anne Nielsen, Ken Schiano, Eve Stockton, Marcy Dunn Ramsey, Vicco von Voss, Zemma Mastin White, and special guest artists.

  • Pippin

    With an infectiously unforgettable score from the four-time Grammy winner, three-time Oscar winner and musical theatre giant, Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Children of Eden), Pippin has been successfully produced on stages ranging from High School to Broadway. Sweeping the New York Awards circuit (Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle) in 2013, Pippin continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world. Heir to the Frankish throne, the young prince Pippin is in search of the secret to true happiness and fulfillment. He seeks it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptations of the flesh and the intrigues of political power (after disposing of his father, King Charlemagne the Great). In the end, though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day. […]
