With summer in full swing now, days are full of fun and sun plus all the work that still has to be done.  The same is true for Chuck and I but we are only 10 weeks away from our annual Homecoming Hues Art Conference and we are looking forward to seeing a great group of painters and teachers there!  With our new location this year we are excited to offer our registered painters more classes, more teachers and expanded classrooms.  Wilson Lodge at Oglebay Park is located near Wheeling, West Virginia and we are sure everyone is going to enjoy this beautiful facility.
With three teachers in oils and one in watercolor, there will be a total of 16 different classes offered to choose from!  All paints, medium and surfaces are supplied so we make it extra easy for you to have just what you need for the individual classes. 
Space is still available in all classes although some are close to being full at this time.  To see all that is being offered simply go to http://KittyGorrell.com then click on the Homecoming Hues tab on the menu bar.  All the details are right there for you including a link to open and print a registration form for you to get all signed up.  What could be easier?!!
Can’t attend for the entire event??  Beginning July 15 we will begin accepting ‘part time’ registration on a space available basis and you can sign up for just a day or two.  All the details for how to do that are included on the Homecoming Hues tab of the web site!  We still have a few copies of the full color brochure for the event so if you would like one of those too just drop us an email and we’ll send one right out to you.
Remember,  just 10 weeks to go and that will just fly by!!   Send your registration in today and join the excitement and painters who are already registered.  Bring a guest, they can register too for all the fun!  
See you in September!!!

“Camelot” opens on July 11

The musical classic “Camelot” by Alan Lerner and Frederick Loewe will open on July 11 at the Friederich Theater in the Hermann Fine Arts Center, 500 Butler Street, Marietta, Ohio. The whole family will enjoy the Tony award-winning story of King Arthur’s marriage to Guenevere, played out amid the pageantry of Camelot. Based on “The Once and Future King”, it is the age old tale of chivalry, equality, honor and faith in the court of King Arthur.

Presented by Theatre de Jeunesse with a cast of Mid-Ohio Valley young adults, the show opens with King Arthur nervously preparing to meet his new Queen, Guenevere. While initially, Guenevere tries to escape the marriage, the two young people soon fall in love, to the pleasure of Arthur’s wise tutor, Merlyn. In order to bring peace and stability to the kingdom, Arthur establishes the Knights of the Round Table who would use their might for right. Included amongst these knights, is the most famous of them all, Lancelot. Soon, Lancelot and Queen Guenevere fall in love. Their affair is made public by Arthur’s evil illegitimate son Mordred and his aunt, the sorceress Morgan le Fey. As a result, peace ends and war breaks out as Arthur’s troops prepare to fight Lancelot’s French army.

Performance dates are Fridays and Saturdays July 11, 12, 18, and 19 at 8:00 p.m. with matinees at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday July 13 and July 20. Sign language interpretation will be provided for the Sunday, July 20 performance. Ticket prices are $15.00 for adults and $12.00 for senior citizens aged 60 and above and students through college. Opening night special is a “buy one get one free” ticket offer.
