Sherri Rosen-Mason is head of the admissions department at a New England prep school, fighting to diversify the student body. Alongside her husband, the school’s Headmaster, they’ve largely succeeded in bringing a stodgy institution into the twenty-first century.

Michael Stevenson will direct this 2018 Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards Winner for Outstanding Play. The cast will feature returning Capital Stage favorite Amy Resnick, and debuts from Michelle Champoux, Elizabeth Dimon, Jacob Flekier, and Richard B. Watson.

The James Hunter Six are back with another sublime offering of no-nonsense rhythm and blues. Recorded and produced by Bosco Mann, Nick of Time is a shining example of how a master song-smith can continually draw fresh water from a bottomless well. In addition to the uptempo, swinging R&B that has put The James Hunter Six on the map, Nick of Time explores so much more! The opening track and lead single, "I Can Change Your Mind," is a beautiful, mid-tempo rumba that tips the hat to the sound of many early King/Federal releases, but executed with a vibrancy that propels the tune into the 21st Century. The lush arrangements on "Till I Hear it from You" and " He's Your Could Have Been" sound like lost tracks from an early 60s Burt Bacharach session. The straight forward soul of "Brother or Other" (whose timely message is only tantamount to its groove), and the sparse "Paradise for One" (that finds James channeling his innermost Nat King Cole), enrich the album with sounds one may not readily associate with James and Co. -- culminating in James' most exciting full-length release to date.

Due to the current Public Health Order 3/19/2020 Photography Month(s) Sacramento events and our Open Show Sacramento: Alumni Collection exhibit will be rescheduled. Stay tuned!

What better way to celebrate Photography Month Sacramento, than with an event that embraces the artistry of photography in its many forms? Welcome to: Open Show Sacramento an Alumni Presentation.

Open Show Sacramento was launched in July of 2016 at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center by local photographer and event producer, Juliet Haas. Since 2016, Ms. Haas has produced 11 shows throughout the Sacramento region offering an opportunity for photographers to share a complete body of work, or one in progress, with an audience in an informal setting.

The concept for Open Show began in 2008 in San Francisco and has now evolved into an international event platform for photographers, filmmakers and multimedia artists. Sacramento's Open Show focuses on the art of photography creating a supportive and exciting opportunity for artists to meet one another and exchange ideas.

The way Open Show Sacramento comes together is through an Open Call for photography projects which includes a body of work which has been completed or is in process. Once submitted, Haas selects five presenters to share their work at the next Open Show. The build up to the presentation is labor intensive, but Haas handles it like a pro. First she secures presentation venues, and then, working with the established Open Show brand, she creates the marketing outreach and social media posts. Finally, she organizes and presents the show.

This exhibit represents images from the Alumni of the past 11 Open Shows over a three year period of time. Each of the 44 photographers has one image from a current project or from their original Open Show presentation.

Participating artists:
Steve Abbott, Jo Ann and George Aiello, Iva Bartley, Laszlo Bencze, Jaya Bhat, Todd Bischoff, Susan Bovey, Angela Casagrande, Harvey Castro, Angel Chea, Doug Dertinger, Kate Farrall, Elisa Fernandez, Juliet Haas, David Harlan, Dan Herrera, Robert Jensen, Linda Clark Johnson, Lewis Kemper, Aniko Kiezel, Joan Carroll Kudin, Tori Lee, Justin Marsh, Tim Messick, Zach Miners, Marlo McClurg, Aniko Meszaros, David Nasater, Roberta Neidigh, Mircea Ouatu-Lascar , Jessica Pena, Dianne Poinski, David Ruderman, Farrell Scott, Anna Skacel, Megan Sinclair, Neal Snidow, Peter Sutherland, Jason Tannen, Steven Tze, Gary Wagner, Ken Walton, Dennis Wickes, and Jim Wilson.

The James Hunter Six are back with another sublime offering of no-nonsense rhythm and blues. Recorded and produced by Bosco Mann, Nick of Time is a shining example of how a master song-smith can continually draw fresh water from a bottomless well. In addition to the uptempo, swinging R&B that has put The James Hunter Six on the map, Nick of Time explores so much more! The opening track and lead single, "I Can Change Your Mind," is a beautiful, mid-tempo rumba that tips the hat to the sound of many early King/Federal releases, but executed with a vibrancy that propels the tune into the 21st Century. The lush arrangements on "Till I Hear it from You" and " He's Your Could Have Been" sound like lost tracks from an early 60s Burt Bacharach session. The straight forward soul of "Brother or Other" (whose timely message is only tantamount to its groove), and the sparse "Paradise for One" (that finds James channeling his innermost Nat King Cole), enrich the album with sounds one may not readily associate with James and Co. -- culminating in James' most exciting full-length release to date.

Due to the current Public Health Order 3/19/2020 Photography Month(s) Sacramento events and our Open Show Sacramento: Alumni Collection exhibit will be rescheduled. Stay tuned!

What better way to celebrate Photography Month Sacramento, than with an event that embraces the artistry of photography in its many forms? Welcome to: Open Show Sacramento an Alumni Presentation.

Open Show Sacramento was launched in July of 2016 at Viewpoint Photographic Art Center by local photographer and event producer, Juliet Haas. Since 2016, Ms. Haas has produced 11 shows throughout the Sacramento region offering an opportunity for photographers to share a complete body of work, or one in progress, with an audience in an informal setting.

The concept for Open Show began in 2008 in San Francisco and has now evolved into an international event platform for photographers, filmmakers and multimedia artists. Sacramento's Open Show focuses on the art of photography creating a supportive and exciting opportunity for artists to meet one another and exchange ideas.

The way Open Show Sacramento comes together is through an Open Call for photography projects which includes a body of work which has been completed or is in process. Once submitted, Haas selects five presenters to share their work at the next Open Show. The build up to the presentation is labor intensive, but Haas handles it like a pro. First she secures presentation venues, and then, working with the established Open Show brand, she creates the marketing outreach and social media posts. Finally, she organizes and presents the show.

This exhibit represents images from the Alumni of the past 11 Open Shows over a three year period of time. Each of the 44 photographers has one image from a current project or from their original Open Show presentation.

Participating artists:
Steve Abbott, Jo Ann and George Aiello, Iva Bartley, Laszlo Bencze, Jaya Bhat, Todd Bischoff, Susan Bovey, Angela Casagrande, Harvey Castro, Angel Chea, Doug Dertinger, Kate Farrall, Elisa Fernandez, Juliet Haas, David Harlan, Dan Herrera, Robert Jensen, Linda Clark Johnson, Lewis Kemper, Aniko Kiezel, Joan Carroll Kudin, Tori Lee, Justin Marsh, Tim Messick, Zach Miners, Marlo McClurg, Aniko Meszaros, David Nasater, Roberta Neidigh, Mircea Ouatu-Lascar , Jessica Pena, Dianne Poinski, David Ruderman, Farrell Scott, Anna Skacel, Megan Sinclair, Neal Snidow, Peter Sutherland, Jason Tannen, Steven Tze, Gary Wagner, Ken Walton, Dennis Wickes, and Jim Wilson.
