Memorial Celebration for Terrance Cox
Sunday 8 February 2015 2PM-6PM
Niagara Artists Centre

On January 16 NAC member Terrance Cox died of a heart attack. Terrance was a dominating figure, literally and figuratively, in our part of the world. The grandness of his stature was only superseded by a love and appreciation for the arts that he easily and enthusiastically shared. A poet, teacher, and mentor to many, Terrance’s passing leaves an un-fillable vacancy in our community. This Sunday, the 8th of February, from 2PM until 6PM, NAC will host a celebration of Terrance’s life where stories will be shared and music will be played.  All who knew and admired him are welcome.

Friends and family have requested that donations in Terrance’s memory be made to the Niagara Artists Centre and the Al Purdy A-Frame Association.

Under the Arcane Big Top

Photographs by Alex Sobschak
Opening Reception Friday 6 February at 7PM
Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery at NAC

First imagine characters you would see in a traveling circus, now imagine them in an every day setting. What do they look like? How do they live their every day lives? Under the arcane big top is a photographic exhibit that showcases people who used to work in a traveling circus but now have to adjust to the daily lives of modern day society. Although they may be living and working among us, they still resemble their old lives.

From shopping for clothes or having lunch, you can still recognize who these characters used to be.

WINGS OF WAX by Lindsay Price
Presented by Essential Collective Theatre

Sullivan Mahoney Courthouse Theatre

Looking for a snappy, zippy comedy to brighten those long February nights? Essential Collective Theatre continues its 2014/2015 season with Wings of Wax. This brand-new play by Niagara writer Lindsay Price tells the story of twenty-something Daniel who is stuck in his job as a waiter in St. Catharines, and longs to get out and experience some real adventure. He fantasizes about Ken Leishman, the “flying bandit” who pulled off daring robberies across Canada in the 50’s and 60’s and imagines how he might become just as famous. Daniel and his friend Tee challenge each other to see who can be the “real” Ken Leishman, with stakes that could be dangerous for both of them.

Performances Feb. 20 & 21 @8pm, Feb. 22 @2pm (PWYC); Feb. 26, 27 & 28 @ 8pm, Mar. 1 @ 2pm (PWYC). Regular admission $25; Students and Seniors over 65 $20.
