Christians call it the Way of the Cross. A contemporary Buddhist author calls it “going to the places that scare you.” It is the darkest of times. It is a journey of transformation. To whom can we look as models who conquered the fear of transformation by going through the experience of death and come out “new?” Award-winning artist Janet McKenzie will exhibit fifteen oil on canvas paintings depicting The Way of the Cross and the Resurrection.

Artist’s Talk: March 28th 3:30 PM

Regular Gallery Hours: Mon.-Sat. 10 AM-4 PM

In THE 39 STEPS, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! THE 39 STEPS cast includes Dick Terhune, Holly Martin, Joe Harding and Daniel R. Willey. The Warner Stage Company production of THE 39 STEPS is directed by Katherine Ray.
