One of our primary goals as a community theatre is to find ways to engage directly with our neighbors and the surrounding community Not only through our productions, but in other areas of outreach and connection. To that end, we have invited local artists to create and display their work right here in the theatre!
Here is an introduction to some of the pieces on display. But, you'll really want to stop by the theatre to see these in person!
The incredibly talented Kathleen Stanberry painted this gorgeous mural in the seating area of our theatre. You'll be able to enjoy her art while you're munchin' popcorn and waiting for the curtain to open!
A note on the work:
"Kathleen Stanberry is a true Sierra Vista native. Surrounded by the transient military population, she developed a strong Arizonan identity. Her lifelong dedication to volunteering grew her love for her community and, through her passion for cooking and education she hopes to continue to make her mark alleviating food insecurity. While this is her first mural, she knows it won’t be her last. Courtney Wahlstrom, to whom this piece is dedicated, was Kathleen’s biggest motivator and supporter. Courtney’s use of witty stand-up comedy and impassioned activism pushed Kathleen to strive to better herself; in education, art, life and love. May she rest in peace."
Kathleen completed this mural, start to finish, in less than a week!
Follow Kathleen on her Facebook page.
Originally from Tunisia, North Africa, Sara is a military spouse currently stationed with her husband at Fort Huachuca. Sara energetically works black & white acrylic & marker on her canvases to bring exciting modern abstractions to traditional southwestern imagery.
From the artist's website:
"Military spouse and artist. Not far from home and from the heart, is where I find my inspiration to paint. Daily life scenes, the southwestern sceneries, and the memories I have from my place of birth Tunisia, North Africa. I use mainly black and white acrylics and markers to dress my canvases."
Sara's work is available for purchase through her Etsy storefront.
