After that date, they are $10 for children and $15 for adults. You don't want to miss three days of fun June 11-13 celebrating the imaginative world of David Shannon.       
Abilene has some great events in May. These include the Abilene Philharmonic's Charlie Chaplin concert and the opening of a wonderful midcentury modern art exhibit at The Grace Museum (parts of Seymour Fogel's "American National Bank Mural" are pictured above our header in this issue). Greer Garson will be on the big screen at the Paramount Theatre, H.C. Zachry is unveiling a new book and exhibit and art by Bud Clayton is now on display at the Abilene Civic Center.

Philharmonic to play Charlie Chaplin's music

The Historic Paramount Theatre is the perfect setting for the Abilene Philharmonic to play the straight man to the antics of the little tramp, one of the silver screen's most enduring and loved icons. Charlie Chaplin's favorite film is full of adventure, fantastic characters, and legendary comedic moments, each second orchestrated for the most delightful effect. The Philharmonic will perform music from "The Gold Rush" (1925) during this pops concert at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 2. Tickets are $10 to $42. Chaplin's mother and father both sang and acted. He was a self-taught violinist. When he wrote music, he could sing it and pick out the melody on the piano, but he never learned to write music down. Arrangers wrote it for him. In "My Autobiography," Chaplin wrote, "I tried to compose elegant and romantic music to frame my comedies in contrast to the tramp character, for elegant music gave my comedies emotional dimension." 

Iconic water toys subject of new Center exhibit
If the warm spring weather and recent rain are turning your thoughts to water, check out the new exhibit by Lubbock artist Shannon Cannings at the Center for Contemporary Arts. The Gallery 3 exhibit "Plastic Fantastic" includes paintings, drawings and prints of iconic water toys. Pictured left is her oil painting "Transition" ($2,000). The opening reception for the exhibit is 5-7 p.m. Friday, May 8. This is also the opening reception for the exhibit "Water" by Signature Artist Members and the West Texas Photographic Society annual exhibit. The exhibit "Oops! Make No Mistake About It. Make Life Art." by Cara Hines is on display through May 23. Hines is a self-described "recovering perfectionist." Her exhibit is a metaphor for the way she approaches life, which is to embrace the beauty of imperfection.

Texas journalist recalls friendship with Mister Rogers

It began as another newspaper assignment - a celebrity profile of a children's television icon. But in Fred Rogers, Texas journalist Tim Madigan found more than a fascinating subject. From their first meeting in 1995, at Rogers' invitation, the two became unlikely friends, a deep and abiding relationship that lasted until Rogers' death in 2003.

In that time, Madigan found Rogers to be much more than the calm and compassionate personality of television. He was a person of unique human greatness who embodied love, compassion and wisdom his every waking moment. He was the transcendent being who guided Madigan through periods of life-threatening depression and the tragic death of a sibling and helped him heal his difficult relationship with his father. Madigan will talk about his book in the upcoming installment of the 2015 Texas Author Series at noon on Monday, May 11 at the Abilene Public Library. The program is free. You may bring a lunch or purchase one for $5 starting at 11:45 a.m. Books will be available for purchase and signing. The Texas Author Series is presented by Friends of the Abilene  Public Library and the West Texas Book Festival.

Break out your bobby socks for ArtWalk   

The Thursday, May 14 ArtWalk themed Mid-Century MAYhem will be a celebration of the arts between the years 1950 and 1960.  Choreographed 1950s dancing and vintage cars will kick off the evening, followed by a sock hop on Cypress Street. The Party Doc will play selections from the top 100 pop tunes of the 1950s.  ArtWalkers are encouraged to dress up in ponytails, poodle skirts, pompadours and pedal pushers and rock downtown.

ArtWalk is the second Thursday of each month and hosted by the Center for Contemporary Arts. Downtown Abilene stays open late with free admission to museums and galleries and activities.  

 

"The Nerd" promises to tickle funny boneo

The Abilene Community Theatre presents the Larry Shue comedy "The Nerd" the last two weekends in May. One of the funniest plays ever written, this extraordinarily inventive, side-splitting comedy was first presented by the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, then produced in Great Britain, then went on to Broadway. The action centers on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect who is visited by a man he's never met, but who saved his life in Vietnam. The visitor turns out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly silly "nerd" who outstays his welcome with a vengeance. The ACT is located at 809 Barrow St. For ticket information, call 325-673-6271. 

 

The Grace explores midcentury modern art       

More than 25 important Texas artists who created personalized visions of the modernist aesthetic will be featured in the group exhibition "The Abstract Impulse" at The Grace Museum. Texas Modernists exhibitions will examine the contributions of midcentury modernist artists, architects, decorative artists and designers from the epic modernist era of 1940s through the 1960s in Texas and beyond. The exhibitions are co-curated by Judy Tedford Deaton, chief curator of The Grace Museum, and Katie Robinson-Edwards, Ph.D., curator of the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and Museum in Austin. Robinson-Edwards' new publication, "Midcentury Modern Art in Texas," brings new research to Texas modernism. Deaton's exhibitions and publications on Texas modernist contemporaries Michael Frary and Loren Mozley also informs the exhibitions. The reception for the exhibitions is at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 28
