Over the course of many years, artist Rafael E. Vera has been slowly undergoing the process of renovating his home. The architectural development within his home has come to be the inspiration for Vera’s newest collection: Nothing Concrete.
This exhibition strives to highlight “the underlying reality of domestic building structural elements.” The seemingly mundane characteristics of building materials are transformed and given new meaning through Vera’s exceptional work.
Friday, March 9th will mark the opening of Vera’s exhibition held at the Bert’s Green Fine Art gallery. There will be an Artist’s Reception the following day on Saturday March 9 from 5-8PM. The last showing of this collection will be on Saturday, April 27 and will include a closing reception from 5-8PM with an Artist’s talk at 6PM.

The war in Iraq had just started, and a Bengal Tiger was shot and killed after it bit a soldier’s hand off. Not only did this cause world-wide uproar, it also inspired Rajiv Joseph to write his Pullitzer Prize winning story.
In this play, the tiger can speak and interact with the humans on a deeper level. With the action happening in the very beginning moments of the plot, the rest is dedicated to the existential questions of this big cat who struggles to understand death just as he struggled to understand life.
The show is playing now through March 17 at the Lookingglass Theatre Company. Many showtimes are available throughout the week so don’t miss it! Tickets range from $36-$70.
