Women have played an integral part in the American studio glass movement from the beginning and in today’s global world of communication and collaboration, women continue to excel. This exhibition, Part 1 of a series, begins to portray the multiplicity of working styles and concepts that women working in the fluid medium of glass, share with the rest of us. Reaching from cultural or historical perspectives, past innovations, or sharing technical and aesthetic content, they are creating new approaches of versatility; holding, emitting, or reflecting light while creating works of extraordinary diversity, stirring beauty and intellectual purity.This exhibition is organized by Palm Springs Art Museum and supported by generous funding from the Brautigam Kaplan Foundation.Exhibition Season Sponsors: Carol & Jim Egan, David Kaplan & Glenn Ostergaard, Dorothy C. Meyerman, Marion & Bob Rosenthal, and the Herman & Faye Sarkowsky Charitable Foundation.

This upcoming season we have a slew of shows that will tickle your fancy. First we have… “Election Day” a comedy by Josh Tobiessen and directed by Rosemary Mallet. Its Election Day, and Adam knows his over-zealous girlfriend will never forgive him if he fails to vote. But when his sex starved sister, an eco-terrorist, and a mayoral candidate willing to do anything for a vote all show up, Adam finds that making that quick trip to the polls might be harder than he thought. Election Day is a hilarious dark comedy about the price of political (and personal) campaigns. February 16-18 and 23-25. Friday and Saturdays at 7pm, and Sunday at 2pm. Next up… “The Thespian Radio Hour” written and directed by our Founding Artistic Director Tony Padilla. DETC’s in-house, award-winning playwright delivers his latest comedy. In 1940s, the production team and cast of a Chicago radio soap opera will go to any lengths to procure a new sponsorship from The Heavenly Body Brassiere Company. “I always look forward to seeing a new play by Tony with great anticipation.” CV Independent March 9-11, and March 16-18. Friday and Saturdays at 7pm, and Sunday at 2pm. and to close out our season… “The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife” Written by Charles Busch, and directed by Don Cilluffo Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side Doctors wife, is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA and evenings at BAM. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, shes shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend. “An intelligently funny and satirically relevant uptown comedy.” New York Magazine April 13-15, and 20-22. Friday and Saturdays at 7pm, and Sunday at 2pm.
