Stage HANDS: A Gallery Art Showing

Curated by Kristen E. Flores, Presented by Chinese Pirate Productions

Featuring the personal works of the unsung heroes of San Diego Theater

Stage HANDS is an unusual concept for a Gallery Show.  Using the Gallery Space in the lobby of the Lyceum theatre in Horton Plaza, we will feature artists who usually spend the majority of their time in complete anonymity, applying their skills in support of other's art.  We will feature over 30 paintings, sculpture, and installation pieces created by craftsmen, artisans, engineers and technicians in San Diego's theater community.

Comprised of Carpenters, Electricians, Sound Engineers, Scenic Painters, Seamstresses and other stage hands who support their own artistic goals by contributing their craft to some of the most renown theatrical institutions in the country!

Why Support this Gallery Show?

You may MARVEL at the magical designs and scenic transitions in the latest  musical or theatrical production! Perhaps you might applaud the the efforts of the Director or scenic designer, but rarely does the public witness the skill and craft of the artisans who actually execute the construction and engineering involved.  Rarely does the public consider the scenic painter who is charged with simulating wood grain, or making a newly assembled floor appear to be old and worn, or making carved foam appear to have the weight and solidity of marble.  Rarely does anyone consider that the stagehand dressed in black, hiding back stage.  Mean while, they are developing their own artistic voice through their own individual works!  Now is the time for them to seen and heard.

Your contributions will go towards the hanging and installation of the art show itself, as well as funding our marketing, and seeing to it that these unsung heroes of the theatre finally see an audience of their own!
