February Gallery Stroll: Aleta Boyce

A look at the mixed-media exhibition currently on display at Art Access
An unusually warm February brought out people in droves who didn't mind walking around in the mild rain to see what was on display for this month's Salt Lake Gallery Stroll. That was both a blessing and a curse for a Friday night, as many galleries chose not to participate this month and instead took the night off, but it gave some opportunities for people to get around to other galleries they may not visit on their standard route.

Plan-B Theatre: Virtue

The playwright and lead actor chat about Plan-B's latest production.
The latest production to come out of Plan-B will take an interesting turn down the road of religious exploration with Virtue. The play focuses on  Hildegard of Bingen, an interesting figure in the Catholic Church from the 12th century who managed to have the ear of the Pope, wrote the first Western world's first opera and questioned whether or not they could bridge the gap between spirituality and sexuality. Today we chat with playwright Tim Slover, who is making his Plan-B Theatre debut, and actor Christy Summerhays, who will be playing Hildegard, about the production and bringing it to life, as well as their thoughts going into opening night.
