September's Arts Events are Eye Catching

September 7, 2011

One of the goals of the Arts@Averett Series is to provide our students and the surrounding community with activities and events that are both interesting and enriching. This month, there are two events scheduled that should suit people of all ages.

On Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m. photographer Jose Galvez will share some of his photographs and discuss his most recent project in which he is photographing the impact of the Latino population on communities in the North Carolina and Virginia that previously had few Hispanic citizens. Galvez is a former photographer for the Los Angeles Times, where he was part of a team of reporters and photographers who won a Pulitzer Prize for a series on Latino life in Southern California. His lecture, which is free and open to the public will be in Blount Chapel.

Following Galvez's visit is the Averett theatre department's Theatre for Young People Show, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black Forest," which will be performed in Pritchett Auditorium Sept. 22-23 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 24 at 2:30 p.m. For those who love this classic fairytale, be aware this is not your traditional "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." While the majority of your favorite characters are here, there are some new additions like Miss Time, whose father, Father Time, started the whole Once Upon a Time business.

Tickets for the theatre production, which are general admission, are $9 for adults and $7 for students/senior citizens. They may be purchased in advance or at the door. For more information call 434-791-5712.
