Grace the walls of TRTC’s new theater

Submitted photoA rendering of the new Thunder River Theatre Company's new theater in downtown Carbondale.

A themed and juried art show will celebrate the grand opening of Thunder River Theatre Company’s new theater in downtown Carbondale.

The theme of the contest is centered around TRTC’s first play in its new facility, “Lysistrata,” Aristophanes’ bawdy, ribald and lewd comedy written in 411 B.C. that is still appropriate today.

The story focuses on Athens and Sparta, at war for years with no end in sight. Lysistrata unites the women in a sex-strike to force the soldiers to come to their senses. And she succeeds.

In celebration of “Lysistrata” and the theater’s opening, Carbondale Council on the Arts and Humanities is asking artists to expand their imaginations and submit their work. If their art is chosen, artists will be among the first to exhibit in the Thunder River Theater’s Alpine Bank Gallery Dec. 30 through Jan. 14.

Deadline for submission is Tuesday, Dec. 13. Artists will be notified by e-mail on Friday, Dec. 16 regarding acceptance (if e-mail is not available, call CCAH to make other arrangements). For more information or to obtain an entry form, call CCAH at 963-1680.
