`Abstracted Realism’ workshop coming to church in Littleton

Posted

Local painter Victoria Kwasinski will lead a workshop, “Abstracted Realism,” for Heritage Fine Arts Guild of Arapahoe County from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Jan. 6. It will be held at First Presbyterian Church, 1609 W. Littleton Blvd. Kwasinski, who counts 30 years of experience as a working artist and teacher, works in a variety of mediums. She attended Colorado Institute of Arts and received her degree from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design. Pre-registration required. (This would be a fine holiday gift for a local artist!) The cost is $35 for HFAG members and $50 for non-members: heritage-guild.com. A list of materials is found on the website.

New in town

Opera Colorado announced that it has moved its administration and rehearsal spaces to a 1930s industrial warehouse in Englewood at 4121 S. Navajo St. Englewood Mayor Joe Jefferson and other city representatives spoke at an open house celebration on Dec. 14. Performances will continue to be at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in downtown Denver, but this move allows business and artistic activities to be under one roof.

Writers’ Retreat

The Englewood Library will offer a two-day Writer’s Retreat on Jan. 13-14, with authors as speakers. Free, but registration is required: 303-762-2555.

It will debut in theatres nationwide, only on Dec. 19, with eight stories that pay tribute to the celebration of Chanukah, written by Scott Evan Guggenheim, Shannon Guggenheim and Steven Guggenheim. A Klezmerized orchestration of Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” accompanies this musical comedy, set in the mythical town of Chelm. Showing at River Point 14 (Sheridan); Meadows 12 (Lone Tree); AMC Highlands Ranch 24; Colorado Mills 16 (Lakewood); Westminster Promenade 24 (Broomfield); Aurora 20; and Denver Pavilions 15.
