Transformations & Reflections: Chinese Paper Cuts

This exhibition in the Down Jersey Folklife Center at WheatonArts features the paper cuts, paper cut collage works and an installation created by the internationally celebrated Chinese artist, Xin Song. Many of her paper cut collages, installations and public works are presented in both China and the US, including Beijing, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. Reflections on cultural heritage and the challenges of present-day life; the search for new answers to old questions and new understandings of old wisdom are all intertwined in Song's creative exploration of cultural meanings, human values and universal connections.

Exhibition Opening Reception on Friday, October 12, at 5:30 p.m. Live demonstration by the exhibiting artist Xin Song, along with a Chinese musical performance by Qin Qian on Erhu (Chinese Two-String Fiddle) and Kurt Jung on Yangchin (Chinese Hammered Dulcimer).


East Lynne Theater Company presents ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET

“Hey Big Spender,” and “I’m in the Mood for Love” are just two of many popular songs with lyrics written by the incomparable Dorothy Fields. The award-winning Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company is presenting a world premiere musical revue, "On the Sunny Side of the Street," the title taken from another Field's hit.

The idea for this exciting production celebrating Dorothy Fields came from Charles Gilbert, who arranged the luscious tunes and is accompanying the cast of four. He headed the Musical Theater Program at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia from its inception in 1990 until 2008 and served from 2008 to 2013 as Director of the Ira Brind School of Theater Arts at UArts. He is a two-time Barrymore Award nominee for his music direction at the Arden Theater.
Another Barrymore Award nominee, Karen Cleighton, is the choreographer. She currently teaches at Chartertech High School for The Performing Arts in Somers Point, NJ.

The director is Gayle Stahlhuth, who has produced over 100 shows since becoming ELTC’s artistic director in 1999.

The exceptional cast-of four includes Joilet F. Harris, Scott Harrison, Annemarie Rosano, and Melissa Zimmerman. Harris had the recurring role of Detective Massey in "The Wire." Harrison has performed in a variety of regional theaters in shows including "Cabaret." Rosano is a founding member of "America's Sweethearts," an ensemble specializing in musical vintage entertainment. Zimmerman’s television appearances include "Royal Pains."

During her almost 50-year career, Dorothy Fields wrote lyrics for more than 400 songs, worked on 15 Broadway musicals, and almost 30 Hollywood films. Her film music with Jerome Kern included them winning the Academy Award for Best Song in 1936 for “The Way You Look Tonight” from Swing Time.

Please note that the location is THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF CAPE MAY, 500 HUGHES ST., CAPE MAY, NJ 08204.  New York is listed as the location because there is no listing for anywhere in the state of NJ.
