Box 1017 A showing of paintings and drawings by portrait artist Linda Vise will be pre- sented Saturday, October 18, from 6-9 p.m. at Wild Hare Gallery, 208 Lee Lane in Covington, LA. "In my portraits I attempt to capture the moment, to reflect something of the individuality of the person, to capture that on canvas for others to share." Ms. Vise's paintings have attracted a great deal of interest since first being displayed, having already received several commissions in less than two months. "People respond so powerfully to her work," says Pierre Friedrichs, owner of Wild Hare Gallery. "We are all so excited about what Linda is doing and want her to have the best possible exposure. The show is intended to acquaint her to the local art public." One of the features that contribute so much to the attraction of her paintings is Ms. Vise's use of grisaille, an old Masters' technique. The initial mono- chromatic underpainting provides a foundation to create an unusually beau- tiful depth and dimension. "I am very excited at the resurgence of realism in art. For a long time realis was considered old fashion and out 0 step with modem thought. I sense a new vitality is its restoration to a plao 0 honor that is ultimately liberating." Her portraits begin with a photo session, another photo session if neceei sary, a full scale drawing Of theportraitS, and then finally, the painting in 0il i many stops along the way for input and approval from the person being painted. "I have found people are very interested in the process of painting a portrait Being able to see themselves in t;e preliminary photos and drawings help us come with a portrait that meets with their satisfaction. Mine is very much a collabortive art." Paintings and drawings by Linda Vise will be presented October 18 thrU October 31, 1986. The opening reception will be October 18, 6-9 p.m. For further information contact 893+ 5984.

The public is invited. coliseum stage into "black box" SLU theatre professor Kay Butler and student volunteers are giving the unused stage area of the old Nic Cefalu Coliseum new life as a setting for experi- mental theatre. They are converting the stage, which was covered with dust and pigeon feathers and had been doubling as a storage area, into a "black box." The black box is as simple as it sounds. It s an empty, unadorned area that can accommodate any type or shape of stage presentation. 'Every theatre of any worth has' one, ' said Butler. Determined that her students would have one too, Butler has been keeping her eye out for an appropriate location. The stage area of the old coliseum, unused since the new University Center took over many of the coliseum's functions, is perfect, she thinks. Getting it in shape for its scheduled debut, the Oct. 30-31 and Nov. 1 run of the musical review "Pump Boys and Dinettes," is a huge job which Butler has tackled ,with characteristic energy. Also characteristically, she has inspired some of her students to work alongside of her. Debra Westmoreland and Mary Powe, two students in Butler's Theatre 131, Introduction to Theatre, class, were perspiring in the coliseum's heat and dust last week helping haul some 700 large lights off the stage. The light had to be moved before the cleaning, clearing, painting and rigging of the black box could begin. "Mrs. Butler has so much energy and desire for this black box," said West- moreland. "We're really doing this because of her." Laughed Gaff O'Heeron, a student who is auditing Butler's class, "l miss my housework and this is the closest thing to it around here." Butler estimates that it will take about three weeks to get the black box ready. The small experimental theatre should eventually have room for approximately 175 chairs, she said. Tickets for ':Pump Boys and Dinettes" are available at the Theatre Box Office in the lobby of D Vickers Hall and at the communications and theatre department office. Tickets are $5 general admission and $3 students and senior citizens. Patrons can also attend a pre-performance barbeque dinner and the show for a combined price of $10 general admission and $8 students and senior citizens. Southeastern l.D.s will not be honored.
