Planters Bank to display Amber Wallace Mixed Media Americana in September

 

Planters BankClarksville, TN – The Planters Bank-Hilldale Gallery will feature mixed media art by Amber Wallace from Thursday, September 3rd – Wednesday, September 30th.

Amber Wallace is an artist that likes to pay homage to the past. Her work is often executed on recycled/upcycled materials such as barn wood, vintage doors and windows, abandoned drawers and cutting boards, etc. By repurposing these materials, they are given a new life and new story, thus preserving a little piece of what came before us. Her work incorporates lots of color and texture, and she draws inspiration from nature, history, and from her little girl Posey.

Personal observations on Cats at the Roxy Regional Theatre

 

Poster for Cats at the Roxy Regional TheatreThe opening night performance of “CATS” sold out at the Roxy Regional Theatre.  All the pay-what-you-can night hopefuls were disappointed because so many fans paid full price to reserve and get in to this extraordinary show, which will only get better.  Those who wish to see CATS are encouraged to get their tickets early; the show runs Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Saturday, April 18 at 2 p.m. through May 2.

Artistic Director John McDonald opened the show by telling our audience that this production is a “dream come true” for the Roxy. It is a dream unfolding for lucky Clarksvillians who get to enjoy this ambitious live theatre production.  We’ve watched the Roxy take on bolder and more expensive productions like this, giving year after year of continuous shows of quality in our community.  We, the audience, can help them by going to the shows and supporting this artistic endeavor.

The live theatre experience is different each time we go.  Performers make it different; so do the audience. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Our review of Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story

 

The Roxy Regional TheatreThe Roxy Regional Theatre is now showing Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story. I attended the opening nights show and here is my review of the production.

I walked into the theatre and was immediately transported through time to the late 1950’s by this incredible Amber Wallace set. I have never been disappointed with any Roxy set, but my favorites are all Amber Wallace’s creations. Her best work in my opinion, was the sets that she did for last years Miss Saigon and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

This show covers Buddy Holly’s life from his rise to success in 1957 to his death in the 1959 plane crash which also took the lives of Rock and Roll legends Ritchie Valens and J. P. Richardson who was also know as the Big Bopper. This plane crash was immortalized in the Don Mclean song American Pie. «Read the rest of this article»
