Somewhere Else and Almost Never Here.  Aguapanela, mogolla, ruana, amapolas. Green mountains, blue mountains, orange mountains mountains of trash, mountains under mountains of bodies and sights. My grandfather’s grandfather never got down from the mountains, my grandmother’s grandmother didn’t move farther than one kilometer from the beach. I live somewhere else and almost never here.     About the Artist: Laura Lucía Sanz was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. She received her BA in Visual Art from Javeriana University in Bogotá in 2012. Later that year, Laura moved to the U.S. to pursue an MFA in Painting at Syracuse University, graduating in 2015. She currently works out of her studio in Corning, NY were she maintains daily practice that consists of painting and drawing, but also explores sculpture and ceramics. She has exhibited her work locally, and all over the U.S., from New York City to San Francisco, as well as abroad in Bogota, Colombia; Hamburg, Germany; and Barcelona, Spain. Her main artistic interest is in the process of painting – using color and texture to create moments of contemplation, play, and connection. Dreamy images of nudes, animals, gardens, and exotic landscapes are a bridge for the viewer to enter the images, before falling into the visceral nature of the painted surface.

Join Elmira Little Theatre at 171 Cedar Arts Center for a 2 week, all day camp for kids and teens! Students will warm up with theater games to improve confidence and develop elements of performance like tone, voice, movement, character, and presence on stage. Students will work together to create the set and dress in costume for a final performance at the end of the camp. Since this production has musical elements, students should be willing to sing in a group at minimum. Students will also have the opportunity “audition” for a lead role, a great way to build experience for aspiring actors and actresses. This year’s production has many opportunities for teens to take lead roles and act as role models for younger children in the production. This year’s performance will be “Summer Camp” by John Jacobson and Mac Huff. This playful musical explores themes like friendship, belonging, overcoming personal doubt, and living life to the fullest! Click here to register!
