Franklin Stage Company Presents 'Marjorie Bradley Kellogg: Drawings And Maquettes'
Franklin Stage Company presents the final art show of their 22nd season, Marjorie Bradley Kellogg: Drawings and Maquettes, generously supported by the Erna McReynolds & Tom Morgan Artists-in-Collaboration Fund.
The exhibit opens with a reception Thursday, August 2nd, 6:00-8:00pm at FSC's historic home, Chapel Hall in Franklin, NY. The show features work from the award-winning scenic designer's distinguished career.
The exhibit will be on view August 2nd-Sept 2nd and will run in conjunction with FSC's production of Doubt, a Parable, by John Patrick Shanley, with set design by Ms. Kellogg.
"To have a set designer of Marjorie Kellogg's caliber right here in Delaware County is such a gift," said Co-Artistic Director Patricia Buckley. "When she graciously agreed to design the set for Doubt, we thought it would be an excellent opportunity to present an exhibit of her models and drawings to run in tandem with the play."
The exhibits will feature sketches, renderings, and 3 dimensional models from past sets designed for Broadway, regional theater and opera. "To see a play's scenic drawings and models is to map the designer's journey from idea to opening night," said Co-Artistic Director Leslie Noble, "We're thrilled to give viewers a slice of Marjorie's fascinating process."
Ms. Kellogg has worked on Broadway and in top regional theatres all over the country, as well as in London and Moscow. In addition to the stage, her work has been featured in opera, film and television. Broadway credits include AMERICAN BUFFALO, DA, REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT, A DAY IN THE DEATH OF JOE EGG, ARSENIC AND OLD LACE, STEAMING, THE BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS, HEARTBREAK HOUSE and PRESENT LAUGHTER. Off-Broadway, she has worked for New York Shakespeare Festival's Public Theatre, Signature Theatre, Second Stage, Manhattan Theatre Club, Playwrights Horizons and Roundabout Theatre.
The show runs August 2nd through September 2nd, with an opening reception August 2nd, 6:00-8:00pm. Admission is free. Donations accepted. For more information: www.franklinstagecompany.org or 607-829-3700.
