Exhibition: In the Round: Ancient Art from All Sides

This exhibition examines the geometry and design of ancient art and the efforts by artists to represent depth and movement by influencing the vantage point of the viewer. By simply flipping a coin, rotating a vase, or walking around a sculpture, the composition changes and new perspectives emerge. Using artifacts from the ancient Mediterranean, In the Round explores early innovations in representational art.

Exhibition: Chinese Ceramics, Jades, and Paintings

Rarely seen masterpieces from Bowdoin’s collection offer insights into the materials, technologies, and changing tastes that shaped Chinese art over the past five centuries. Selections range from a Ming-dynasty porcelain box and an eighteenth-century jade bowl from the Qianlong Emperor’s personal collection to a recently acquired work by one of modern China’s most revered painters, Chen Yifei.

BHS Players present Mamma Mia!

On a small Greek island, Sophie dreams of a perfect wedding — one which includes her father giving her away. The problem? Sophie doesn’t know who he is! Her mother Donna, the former lead singer of the 1970s pop group Donna and the Dynamos, refuses to talk about the past, so Sophie decides to take matters into her own hands. Sneaking a peek in her mother’s old diaries, she discovers three possible fathers: Sam, Bill, and Harry. She secretly invites all three to the wedding, convinced that she’ll know her father when she sees him. But when all three turn up, it may not be as clear as she thought!

Join BHS Players as they present Mamma Mia! which showcases the legendary songs of ABBA, with music & lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and some songs with Stig Anderson, and the book by Catherine Johnson.

Performances are March 21-23 at 7 pm and March 23-24 at 2 pm in Crooker Theater at Brunswick High School.  Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3911390 ~ Premiere Seating (allowing you to select your seat ahead) are $15 each, while General Admission is $12.
