A Quarter Million Hours in the Theatre… Give or Take

Chuck Sheffield
September 7-  October 14, 2011

Lago Vista Gallery, Richland College, Dallas
opening reception: Wednesday, September 7 from 12-1 PM

Richland College’s Lago Vista Gallery presents A Quarter Million Hour in the Theatre, featuring the set designs, models, and sculptural works of Chuck Sheffield. The exhibit displays several scale models used as physical tools for understanding design and composition related to the theatre, while also showcasing the breadth of experience culminated in Sheffield’s forty-plus years in the field. The exhibition will open Wednesday, September 7 and run through October 14th, 2011 with an opening reception and artist talk on Wednesday, September 7th from 12-1 PM.

Sheffield recently retired from thirty-seven years in the Theatre department at Richland College. Remaining creatively active, Sheffield has allowed Richland to exhibit his models, as both a documentation of his impact on the college and as singular objects requiring consideration. The pieces, developed by hand in an era of digital manipulation and laser-cutters, offer an alternative for familiarization of design and space, preferring physical manipulation and time as elements of complex synthesis.

A Quater Million Hours in the Theatre… Give or Take and all related events are free and open to the public. The Lago Vista Gallery, located in the Library at 12800 Abrams Rd, Dallas, is open from 9AM-9 PM Monday through Thursday, 9AM-4PM Friday and Saturday 12-4PM.
