St George Art Festival

The 39th Annual St. George Art Festival, held as always on Easter weekend – this year March 30-31- is a testament to what visionary leadership can do to take a small idea and turn it into something amazing and grand.  What began 38 years ago as a way to showcase the work of local artists has evolved into an event attracting more than 100 artists – in every venue, including oils, water color, ceramics, photography, jewelry and the broad category of “other” – juried from hundreds of submissions from across the United States.  Not only will festival-goers enjoy incredible, one-of-a-kind works of art, over 30,000 residents and visitors to our red rock community, will also enjoy live entertainment on two stages, a children’s area full of interesting and fun activities for your little ones, and a variety of food items from which to choose.

The Art Around the Corner Foundation here in St. George is “dedicated to supporting the arts, enhancing the community’s lifestyle through art; and, displaying fine art on nearly every street corner in historic downtown St. George.”  This organization – which has changed names a few times since its formation in 1988 – was a driving force in restoring the long-abandoned St. George Opera House to its former glory, and building the St. George Art Museum and Social Hall in the Pioneer Center for the Arts complex on the corner of Main Street and 200 North.

For the Love of Art Home Tour

The St. George Art Museum’s 10th Annual “For the Love of Art” Home Show is a “little bit of mystery and a whole lot of fun,” scheduled this year on the mornings of Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23.  The mystery is the location of the three upscale homes, each with impressive, one-of-a-kind art collections.  To protect the privacy of our homeowners, the location of each home will be revealed only when art lovers arrive at the address.  The fun is getting to share the ride with friends and neighbors – also on the tour – or get acquainted with other art lovers on one of three comfortable and air-conditioned buses.  There is also the opportunity for interesting conversation about the homes and their art on the bus and later, during lunch at the Painted Pony restaurant.

the tavern

The world premiere of “The Tavern,” a satirical comedy written by the 1930’s most famous song and dance man, George M. Cohan and adapted by Joseph Hanreddy, is certain to be a memorable evening of fun, laughter and edge-of-the-seat anticipation.  The story line tells of the happenings on “one dark and stormy night when a wild wind blows all sorts of oddball characters into a remote Utah tavern—a mysterious vagabond, a damsel in distress, a politician, his daughter, and her fiancé. A thief is on the loose, suspicions abound, and no one is who they seem! Everyone tries to solve the crime, which only multiplies the laughter as this melodramatic farce rolls to its madcap ending.”

Anes Does Shakespeare’s Long First Play

The regional premiere of the highly imaginative, vaudeville-infused William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (Abridged) tells the marginally-true (well, actually not true at all) story of what is claimed to be a long lost manuscript of William Shakespeare’s first play.  Playing on alternating days from July 28 to October 21, this fast, funny and frenzied performance finds a trio of comic actors using their questionable knowledge of The Bard and their street sense to do the convincing.  Audiences in the Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theater on the campus of Southern Utah University will be delighted with this show’s unadulterated hilarity.

Jones Theater on the campus of Southern Utah University, provides professional repertory theater in a small town setting.
