For more information, contact Jennifer Wadsworth at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (208) 360-6255.
“Above the Cataclysm” curated by Gabriella Warnick
Art now has cause to question its own authenticity. Diffident conjecture abandons habit as mark-making becomes neglected in favor of permanent erasures. Unfinished thoughts and self-effacing bones of a painting raise the question, “When is a work of art finished?” In this exhibition, the pieces express this discord in what might be called the death of painting. This exhibit shows Thursdays–Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through March 31 at the DiFiore Center. This even is free and open to the public. For more information, email email@example.com, or call (435) 673-4206.

Cedar City Junior Ballet presents “The Sleeping Beauty”
Cedar City Junior Ballet will perform Tchaikovsky’s full-length ballet “The Sleeping Beauty” Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Heritage Center Theatre. “The Sleeping Beauty” begins with the king and queen celebrating the birth of their first child, Princess Aurora. The evil fairy Carabosse arrives, and in her anger at not being invited, she curses the baby so that at age of 16 she will prick her finger and die. However, the Lilac Fairy intervenes and changes the curse from death to a peaceful 100-year sleep for the princess. The ballet is appropriate for children over the age of four. Tickets are $10 and available at the Heritage Center box office or from any cast member. More information is available on Facebook, by emailing email@example.com, or by calling the Heritage Center box office at (435) 865-2882.
