“Call for stories” for Feb. 17 performance

LLCC Arts and Humanities has issued a “call for stories” for a performance the evening of Feb. 17 entitled, “What We Talk About When We Say Love.”

“We are looking for individuals to write and deliver original stories or monologues on any aspect of love,” said Dr. Deborah Brothers, professor of English. “The stories can be about familial, platonic or romantic love – positive or negative – and be up to about seven minutes long.” For inspiration, she suggests listening to podcasts including the Moth Radio Hour, Snap Judgment or This American Life.

Stories should be composed in a Word document and emailed to by Wednesday, Feb. 1. Writers should indicate whether they will read their own story or prefer an LLCC theatre student to read for them.

Dr. Brothers will inform everyone who will participate in the show by Friday, Feb 3.

“It’s Not Just Black and White” runs through Dec. 14

Michelle SmithThe James S. Murray Gallery at LLCC is featuring the exhibit, “It’s Not Just Black and White,” an achromatic work in graphite and charcoal by Michelle Smith, through Dec.14. The exhibit is open weekdays from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

Smith, who teaches drawing for LLCC Community Education, is a member of the Springfield Artist Collective and the Colored Pencil Society of America. She won the Best of Show award twice in the Chatham Area Public Library Annual Winter Art Exhibit.

"Let It Go" by Michelle SmithShe says of her LLCC exhibit, “Life is what inspires me to draw. I believe there is so much in our daily living that just screams ‘put me to paper!’ and that is what I try to portray in my work. Creating art is creating communication: intellectual, emotional and even spiritual communication with the viewer.

“The ‘It’s Just Not Black and White’ exhibit is a very good representation of my artistic inspirations. The title alone lends itself to the deeper issue of life; most things are not as simple as they first appear to be. I believe it is the duty of art to point out those things that we either go completely blind to or take for granted.”
