Scott Shepard presents a theatrical impersonation of the working class impressionist painter who celebrated beauty, especially feminine sensuality. Renoir (February 25, 1841- December 3, 1919) captured the joy of life in his art, while at the same time he endured hardships, criticism and acute arthritis. $10 suggested donation, refreshments follow the program.
The destruction of Atlanta in September 1864 and General Sherman's subsequent march to the sea crushed the heart of the Confederacy and marked the beginning of the end for the Confederate States of America. Retired U.S. Diplomat and Civil War buff Brian Flora juxtaposes the "Gone with the Wind" mythology of the South's glorious "Lost Cause" with Sherman's aggressive campaign to end the Confederacy's ability to stay in the war. $10 suggested donation, refreshments follow the program.
