'The Ladies' opens at RLS this Friday

Robert Lange Studios | The Ladies
Oil painter Karin Jurick presents her latest solo exhibition, The Ladies, opening this Friday at Robert Lange Studios. The Ladies is a collection of paintings depicting women in a gallery or museum setting. Jurick builds up her compositions by layering oil paint and creating various thicknesses to compose unique interpretations. “I got the idea for the theme when I painted a smaller piece with Alice Neel’s self-portrait as the subject. She made no excuses, no apologies for her aging body,” said Jurick in a press release for the show. “I titled the piece ‘To Tell the Truth’ and proceeded to make notes of those paintings I’ve admired with women as the subject. My personal favorites like Michelle Obama’s official portrait by Amy Sherald and the self-portrait by Romaine Brooks.”

Fri. Aug. 2, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Robert Lange Studios, 2 Queen St. Downtown. robertlangestudios.com

Woolfe Street Playhouse | Need to Know
Need to Know is a comedy written by Jonathan Caren and directed by Jay Danner. It tells the story of Lilly and Steven, who after moving into a new apartment, meet a not-so-nice neighbor with whom they share a wall. Little do Lilly and Steven know — you can hear pretty much everything through the wall. The play asks, “in this age of online transparency, should we share everything, or are there some secrets worth keeping, including those of the people closest to us?”

Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. $15+. Woolfe Street Playhouse, 34 Woolfe St. Downtown. woolfestreetplayhouse.com
