Handcrafted Auguries will be on view in The Milliken Art Gallery beginning January 8, 2015. In this solo exhibition, Asheville artist Bridget Conn will present a large selection of her work. Conn says, “This body of work deals with my evolving themes of ritual, tradition, and inheritance, as they blend with nature and science. I find equal wonder in the traditional “women’s work” activities of baking and cooking as I do in studying geography, astronomy and biology. These images are created to express the wonder I see in the every day; the lurking sense of order and sacredness that imbues even the most mundane of objects. I strive to cross-breed the spiritual and the analytical, rather than separate them into two distinct languages.”

Conn is currently the Photography instructor at Blue Ridge Community College in Flat Rock, North Carolina. She also teaches Photography at The Asheville Darkroom, a non-profit art educational facility which she founded in 2012 and serves as Director. In addition to teaching, she continues to make her own artwork, and write stories about other artists and their work for regional magazines such as Verve and Bold Life.

Handcrafted Auguries will run from January 8- February 5, 2015. Conn will present a Gallery Talk on January 8th at 6:00 pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00 pm.

The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are 9:00 am–5:00 pm, Monday-Friday and 2:00-5:00 pm, Sunday. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.

Praised by the New York Times for her "sweet-voiced soprano," 24-year old lyric soprano Heather Engebretson is quickly becoming known for her "overwhelming power" (ITÄ-SAVO, Savonlinna) and her "long lines and beautiful sound" (Helsingin Sanomat, Helsinki).

Based on Greek and Roman Mythology of the Trojan War, the two-act epic war opera-oratorio creates a look into the eyes and suffering hearts of the women of Troy. Hecuba, the Queen of Troy, serves as the ultimate protagonist by representing a woman of strength and courage when a devastating fate has engulfed her nation, family and home. The plot portrays the fragility of a powerful civilization when reason is abandoned and the enemy is underestimated.

Troiades is a world premiere and a collaboration of the Converse School of the Arts, Converse Opera Theatre and distinguished alumni. It is unique with its focus on the women's perspective during massive destruction and tragedy, while portraying the story in a modern graphic novel style that creates completely original and colorful sets. Contemporary lighting techniques, new to the Upstate, enhance the work created by Dr. David Berry, Professor of Musicology and Composition at Converse College, and Dr. Ronald Boudreaux, former Director of Converse Opera Theatre.

Troiades is directed by Elizabeth Margolius 1990, a Converse alumna and professional director from Chicago. In addition, the work showcases Converse alumnae Taylor Johnson Brown 2007, 2014 winner of the Jenson Foundation Competition, as Hecuba, and Eranga Goonetilleke 2008 as Helen. Returning to the Converse Opera Theatre stage are Jason McKinney as King Priam and Matias Mariani as Paris. The production promises action, love, hurt and loss, and we are proud to add it to Converse Opera Theatre's 2015 season.

Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, January 23 and 24, 2015, at 7:30 pm and Sunday, January 25, 2015, at 3:00 pm.
