FLINT — This month, the exhibition at Buckham Gallery explores the world of Shakespeare where power, lust, betrayal, vengeance and magic come together. Through the intricate pairing of live performance and art installation, In the Round brings one of Shakespeare’s most haunting visions to life.
The In the Round exhibition presents an art installation that reflects themes explored in William Shakespeare’s MacBeth, which will be performed by Flint City Theatre and directed by Dan Gerics.
The opening reception for In the Round is 6-9 p.m. May 13 at the gallery, 134 W. Second St. The show is in conjunction with Second Friday Art Walk in downtown Flint. The gallery will except donations and provide refreshments.
The exhibit will feature artist members Todd Onweller and Amanda N. Simons of Flint, who will be creating the sweeping art installation that will provide the background for Flint City Theatre’s preformances of MacBeth.
Gallery hours are noon to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. In the Round will remain on display until June 4.
Buckham Gallery is an artist-run, not-for-profit exhibition and performance space. The gallery was established in 1984 as a center for innovative and diverse contemporary visual and performance art for Flint and surrounding areas. The artist-member volunteers who run the gallery are eager to exhibit artists from as many diverse locations as possible. It is the philosophy of the gallery to create an open atmosphere which allows both emerging and established artists to take charge of their own creative pursuits. — G.G.
