Art Openings & Closings

Dawn Surratt Photography, Opening Reception, at the Horace Williams House

Preservation Chapel Hill is proud to host artist Dawn Surratt in its June 2017 exhibition. For the past 20 years she has spent her life working with hospice patients in rural and urban settings and grappling with the duality of both the tenacity and fragility of the human spirit.

She exclusively uses toy lenses to capture her images because they are unpredictable and surprising---almost as much as life itself. The exhibit runs through Monday, June 26. Details: Sunday, June 4, 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. Free. Preservation Chapel Hill, Horace Williams House, 610 East Rosemary St, Chapel Hill. www.preservationchapelhill.org. 919-942-7818.

Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass play two utterly ubiquitous male characters. But as female performers, they can never become these characters. In their persistent failure to become these icons, we can see something more special—two individuals desperate to wrest new meaning from our most familiar ideas of ourselves. Hosted by Robbie Saenz de Viteri, Happy Hour is a hybrid, part office party, part dance show, and part karaoke event. Details: Thursday, June 8, 6:30 p.m. $10-$21.50. PSI Theatre, Durham Arts Council, 120 Morris St, Durham. www.americandancefestival.org/events/happy-hour-2, 919-684-6402.
