WHERE: Abend Gallery, 2260 E Colfax Ave., Denver, CO 80206Abend Gallery Presents: Contemporary Figuration May 13 – June 18, 2016 Opening Reception: Friday May 13, 6-9 pm In its second year running, Abend Gallery presents Contemporary Figuration featuring a large survey of works from artists who exhibit some of the most exceptional perspectives on figurative painting today. The exhibition opens Friday May 13 with the reception from 6-9pm, and runs through June 18. From emerging to well established, the range in artists is just as wide as the subjects they capture. Even more so, stylistically there are works which embody more traditional methods of execution while others tend towards the contemporary. From the moody, hyper-realist works of Daliah Ammar to the gestural; haunting portraits of Britt Snyder, to the technologically inspired works of Valentin Fischer, there is something for every viewer. While some pieces highlight the beauty and physicality of their subjects like those exemplified in the works of Anna Rose Bain, others have more psychological overtones, such as those seen in the work of Zack Zdrale. With paintings crossing genres, styles, themes, and even continents, these differences serve to highlight the rich, multi-faceted world of figurative painting.

WHERE: @ The John Hand Theater, 7653 East 1st Place, Denver, CO 80230Firehouse Theater Company presents "The Boys Next Door" Written by Tom Griffin Directed by Katie Mangett May 14 - June 11, 2016 Firehouse Theater Company presents "The Boys Next Door" May 14 through June 11 at the John Hand Theater/Colorado Free University, 7653 East First Place in Lowry. Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $22 Adult; $20 for Students/Seniors and are available by calling 303-562-3232 or on line at www.firehousetheatercompany.com. The place is a communal residence in a New England city, where four mentally disabled men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly 'burned out' young social worker named Jack. Norman, who works in a doughnut shop and is unable to resist the lure of the sweet pastries, takes great pride in the huge bundle of keys that dangles from his waist; Lucien P. Smith has the mind of a five-year-old but imagines that he is able to read and comprehend the weighty books he lugs about; Arnold, the ringleader of the group, is a hyperactive, compulsive chatterer, who suffers from deep-seated insecurities and a persecution complex; while Barry, a brilliant schizophrenic who is devastated by the unfeeling rejection of his brutal father, fantasizes that he is a golf pro. Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where we are reminded that the disabled, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time on this earth.
