Gallery Show: Technician/Artist, Beyond the Stage

 The Washington Center Gallery presents

 Dates: May 13 - July 10
Reception: May 16, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Olympia is a town with a strong artistic magnetism but living in our corner of the theater world is not for the weak of heart. Love and passion drive us forward but having a vast array of skills, discipline, strength of vision and soul is what gets a true artist where they need to be. This exhibition features the work of local theater artists that live beyond the walls of the theater.

The irrepressible Moses Pendleton presents Alchemia, his new work for the dazzling dancer-illusionists of MOMIX. It's all about the art of alchemy and the alchemy of art. Pendletons latest creation is an enchanting, phantasmagorical multimedia spectacle full of invention, beauty, sensuality, and humor. Just as he led audiences on a surreal journey through the four seasons in Botanica, in Alchemia, Pendleton manipulates the four classic elements of earth, air, fire, and water to produce a show full of aesthetic thrills, surprising metamorphoses, and the sexuality of nature itself. It's MOMIX at its most magical.
