Description: To whomever it may concern at KPR, We personally would like to invite you to join us for our next event…an opening reception for "Symbiosis," a solo exhibition by Kansas City ceramicist, Rachel Hubbard Kline. Below please find our latest press release. Please call or e-mail us with questions or comments. -------------------------------------- Cerbera Gallery's solo exhibition by Rachel Hubbard Kline seeks "Symbiosis" in the relationship of surfaces to forms and addresses the hierarchy of importance between the form and the image or decoration. Based in Kansas City, Rachel Hubbard Kline’s work explores the wistfulness of personal connections to historical domestic objects and material culture. Objects both functional and ornate, factor into the banality and mundane of daily life. As the current political and social climate continues to shift, Hubbard Kline seeks to compare past and present means of production for goods and labor. -------------------------------------- Exhibition Date:: March 6 – March 28, 2020 Location: Cerbera Gallery 2011 Baltimore Ave, Kansas City, MO 64108 Collector’s Reception: THU, March 5, 6-8pm [Please R.S.V.P.] Opening Reception: FRI, March 6, 5-9pm Closing Reception: FRI, March 27, 5-7pm Phone: +1-844-202-9303 E-Mail: info@cerberagallery.com Event URL: https://cerberagallery.com/cerbera-gallery-presents-symbiosis-by-rachel-...

In the Mood

Get more info about this event »

Description: IN THE MOOD celebrates America’s Greatest Generation through the music of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra and other idols of the 1940s. IN THE MOOD takes a look at America’s Swing Era, the last time when everyone listened and danced to the same style of music. It recreates defining moments from the 1930s/1940s — from the happy-go-lucky era before WWII – to the start of the war when thousands of our youth were going abroad to defend our freedoms — and longing for the end of the war when loved ones would be reunited. The famous LIFE MAGAZINE picture “The Kiss” by Alfred Eisenstaedt epitomized such a moment. The music arrangements of these American songs evoke powerful emotions even in people who were born decades after WWII. Swing Music inspired America with a vision for the future filled with hope, promise and prosperity. This music moved the Nation’s SPIRIT and helped to sustain the nation’s morale during World War II, arguably the pivotal event of the 20th Century.

Description: Flying Buffaloes Hot off of a performance-packed 2019 and the release of their debut LP, Loaded & Rollin’, Flying Buffaloes continue gaining momentum with their nostalgic, rock-leaning Alt-Country sound and high-energy live shows. Based in East Nashville, TN, the band has been steadily touring the US with headlining dates throughout the midwest as well as supporting renowned rock veterans, Drivin’ N Cryin,’ and acclaimed red dirt country artist, Wade Bowen across the south. Flying Buffaloes staked their claim as an Americana act on the rise at their 2019 AMERICANAFEST showcase performance. The positive reception of Loaded & Rollin’ in music press outlets like Pop Matters and Glide Magazine and mainstream radio play on stations including Nashville’s Lightning 100 and Chicago’s Big 95.5 bode well for the future of the band. A deeply personal album, Loaded & Rollin’ explores the isolation and depression associated with immigration, the ups-and-downs of love, relationships, and the essence of what it means to be a working Nashville band. Recorded at Battle Tapes Studio in East Nashville by engineer/mixer/producer Jeremy Ferguson (Cage the Elephant/Steelism/Andrew Combs), Loaded & Rollin’ harkens back to classic rock and outlaw country albums of the 1970s. The production captures the band’s raw energy in-studio and aims to give the listener a taste of Flying Buffaloes’ captivating live performance. Don’t miss Flying Buffaloes on the road in 2020.

Get more info about this event »

Description: In the throes of unprecedented challenges to privacy, truth, and personal expression, Aquila Theatre brings “1984,” George Orwell’s cautionary novel, to the stage for the 19-20 season. As our modern world grapples with the threats and benefits of technological integration, Aquila Theatre’s production of “1984” provides a space to appreciate the value of individual thought — an evocative and timely narrative of personal freedom against political repression. Today, Orwell’s prescient story resonates around the globe as individuals, systems, and governments clash. Written in 1944 near the end of World War II, “1984” depicts a society controlled by a perfectly totalitarian government bent on repressing all subversive tendencies. “Big Brother” is always watching and technology is wielded as a weapon to inundate citizens with propaganda and to monitor thoughts and actions. Imagined before the existence of computers, this dystopian future explores the power of technology as a mental manipulator and source of curated information. The resurgence of “1984” marks a widespread desire to understand the present moment by looking back… as a means to look forward. How far are we from realizing Orwell’s nightmare? Are we already there? Can there be more than one truth, more than one set of facts? Parental Advisory: Some material may not be appropriate for children under 14.

Homer's The Odyssey

Description: Homer’s “The Odyssey” is the epic tale of one man’s decade long struggle to return home. One of the most famous tales in world literature, “The Odyssey” remains an influential and moving portrait of Odysseus’ monumental journey — one fraught with obstacles, dangers, and temptations. A testament to perseverance and the human spirit, “The Odyssey” was originally performed by highly-skilled bards across the ancient Mediterranean world. Aquila Theatre now presents a thrilling new dramatic adaptation of this timeless poem in 2019/2020. Odysseus is the great strategic mind of the Greek army at Troy. He is at first reluctant to leave his wife Penelope and newborn son to go to battle, but his masterful tricks of deception helps defeat the Trojans and end the 10-year-long war. His homecoming is just as long and treacherous as the war itself. As Odysseus sails across the seas, forced to confront a fantastical array of mythical creatures, sorcerers, monsters and divine forces, he must use all his strength, skill and intellect to survive. When he finally returns home to Ithaca, he comes disguised as a beggar. His own halls are plagued with gluttonous suitors determined to force Penelope to choose a new husband and king.

The Age of Eisenhower: America and the World in the 1950s

Description: In a 2017 survey, presidential historians ranked Dwight D. Eisenhower fifth on the list of great presidents, behind the perennial top four: Lincoln, Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Teddy Roosevelt. Historian William Hitchcock shows that this high ranking is justified. Eisenhower’s accomplishments were enormous, and loom ever larger from the vantage point of our own tumultuous times. The Dole Institute welcomes Dr. William Hitchcock, the William W. Corcoran Professor of History at the University of Virginia, as he shares his insights about one of the most highly regarded military and presidential figures in American history. Hitchcock’s book, The Age of Eisenhower, a New York Times Bestseller, has been hailed as the “definitive account of this presidency,” drawing extensively on declassified material from the Eisenhower Library, the CIA and Defense Department, and troves of unpublished documents. In his masterful account, Hitchcock shows how Ike shaped modern America, and he astutely assesses Eisenhower’s close confidants, from Attorney General Brownell to Secretary of State Dulles. The result is an eye-opening reevaluation that explains why this “do-nothing” president is rightly regarded as one of the best leaders our country has ever had. This program will include a book sale and signing. This program is free and open to the public. No ticket is required. William I. Hitchcock is the William W. Corcoran Professor of History at the University of Virginia. His work and teaching focus on the international, diplomatic and military history of the 20th Century, in particular the era of the world wars and the cold war. He taught at Yale for six years, and served as the Associate Director of International Security Studies there. He published France Restored: Cold War Diplomacy and the Quest for Leadership in Europe and co-edited a volume with Paul Kennedy titled From War to Peace: Altered Strategic Landscapes in the 20th Century. He moved to Wellesley College in 1999, where he taught for five years, and then took a position as a dean and professor of history at Temple University in Philadelphia. After publishing The Struggle for Europe: The Turbulent History of a Divided Continent, 1945-present, he went on to write about the experience of liberation at the close of World War II. His book, The Bitter Road to Freedom: A New History of the Liberation of Europe was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, a winner of the George Louis Beer Prize, and a Financial Times bestseller in the UK. In 2010, he moved to the University of Virginia. His most recent book is The Age of Eisenhower: America and the World in the 1950s, which was a New York Times bestseller.
