Oscar Wilde’s “A Woman of No Importance” at the Walnut alnut Street Theatre (WST) continues its 211th season with Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy, “A Woman of No Importance.” Directed by Walnut Producing Artistic Director Bernard Havard, the pro duction opens January 22, and continues through March 1 on the Wal nut’s Mainstage. A beautiful, wealthy, American woman travels to England seeking to marry a titled aristocrat. The incomparable Oscar Wilde employs this deceptively simple plot to masterfully mock British society—and the Englishness of the English. In this classic comedy of manners, Wilde holds an unfiltered mirror up to the bourgeois life of Victorian England, while extolling the virtues of robust – and refreshing – American values. Cultures clash, longheld secrets are exposed, and “A Woman of No Importance” has the final word, as the master of biting wit satirizes the roles we play.


Well known for his mastery of wit and satire, Oscar Wilde penned “A Woman of No Importance” in the height of his career in the 1890s. The play premiered in 1893 at London’s Haymarket Theatre. Wilde pulled no punches when criticizing the social constructs of the Ian Merrill Peakes and Karen Peakes in Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy, “A Woman of No Importance” at the Walnut Street Theatre through March 1. Photo/Mark Garvin Victorian era in which he lived. Women held very few rights compared to men during this time, and Wilde tackled the societal double standards that pervaded the late 19th century. Walnut Producing Artistic Director Bernard Havard leads the cast from the director’s seat for this production. See “A Woman of No Importance” at the Walnut page 8

Theo Anderson’s Landscape Photographs Bring the Eloquence and Awe of the Great Lakes to Haverford College ike the Redwood Forest, the Rocky Mountains, and the “amber waves of grainâ€? immortalized in song, the Great Lakes loom large in the American imagination. These five interconnected bodies of water on the U.S.-Canada border contain more then 20% of the earth’s freshwater and have long been the subject of work by writers and artists from Henry Wordsworth Longfellow and Joyce Carol Oates to William Henry Powell and Theo Anderson’s “Shore, Lake Erie, near Sandusky Ohio,â€? Alexis Rockman. 2015, color pigment print, 20 x 13.33" – is part of the exhibit, Pennsylvanian photographer Theo Anderson has “Theo Anderson Photographs: The Great Lakes Landscape 2010 also found inspiration in to 2016,â€? on view February 1 through April 26, at Haverford College’s Atrium Gallery in Jane Lutnick Fine Arts Center. “the nation’s fourth seaAn opening reception will be held Friday, January 31. coast.â€? A new exhibit in Haverford College’s Atrium Gallery, “Theo Anderson Photographs: The Great Lakes Landscape 2010 to 2016,â€? gathers 30 of his large-format color-pigment photographs of the Great Lakes, part of a larger American Episodes series, as a subject commensurate with his capacity for wonder. “The photographs are not so much about place as they are about transformation,â€? says Anderson. “The context of everyday American life is used in my visual exploration. Working without an itinerary, free of constraints and immersed in the moment, serendipity is my guide. The search began in the early 21st century and is expressed in a myriad of episodes that inform my life.â€? Anderson’s Great Lakes landscapes are known as Gitche Gumee—both because of Gordon Lightfoot’s 1976 song, “The Wreck of Edmund Fitzgeraldâ€? (“The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down/Of the big lake they called Gitche Gumee/The Lake it is said never gives up her dead/When the skies of November turn gloomy‌â€?) and the opening lines of the Longfellow poem “The Song of Hiawathaâ€? (“On the shores of Gitche Gumee/Of the shining BigSea-Water‌â€?). But the lakes themselves are greater than the words of any song or lines of any poem. Touching the province of Ontario and the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York, more than 30 million people live in the Great Lakes basin. (That’s 10% of all U.S. residents and 30% of all Canadian residents!) The square mileage – 95,160 square miles – is larger than the state of Texas. So the artist’s landscape photographs are given a presence by their size and horizontal orientation. The viewer is invited to really take in the grand spaces, his meticulous attention to surface textures, and the qualities of light and sky that define this landscape. The photographs are made in the tradition of American Landscape Painting as much as they are in the tradition of American Color Photography established towards the end of the 20th century. They are in their own right original works of art that respond to a uniquely American place with eloquence and awe. Anderson received an undergraduate degree in political science from Temple University, and though he began a doctorate program in government at Lehigh University, he left to pursue a career in photography. Based in Allentown, PA, he has photographed around the world on self-assignments and assignments for clients. His work is represented in private and public collections including the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Allentown Art Museum, Lehigh University, and Haverford College. He has published over 20 artist books, some of which are in Special Collections at the Lutnick Library Haverford College. “Theo Anderson Photographs: The Great Lakes Landscape 2010 to 2016â€? will be on view February 1 through April 26, at Haverford College’s Atrium Gallery in Jane Lutnick Fine Arts Center.

he Art of Wood-Fired Ceramics,” an invitational international exhibition, curated by Potters Guild members Brett Thomas and Mark


A Peter Callas wood-fired stoneware sculpture titled “Avanti” is just one of the pieces on view at “The Art of Wood-Fired Ceramics” exhibition in the Duke Gallery at Community Arts Center, in Wallingford, PA, which opens with a reception on Saturday, February 1 at 5 p.m. Tyson, featuring work by 40 artists from Japan, France, New Zealand, Indonesia, Denmark, and the United States and featuring the work of renowned artist Peter Callas, opens in the Duke Gallery at Community Arts Center, 414 Plush Mill Road, Wallingford, PA, on Saturday, February 1, 2020, beginning at 10 a.m. An opening reception, featuring live music by Melange Jazz Quartet, wine, and refreshments, will take place from 5 - 8 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to both the public and art collectors. The work in the exhibition showcases the uniqueness, power, and breadth of the wood-firing technique with styles ranging from wabi-sabi to expressionism. The show is anchored by a collection of large expressionist ceramic sculptures by Peter Callas who is celebrating his 50th year as a ceramic artist. After traveling to Japan in 1973 to study ceramics, Peter built the first Anagama (wood-fired) kiln in the United States in 1976. Over the past 50 years, he has exhibited on five continents and received numerous awards and grants including the Pollack/Krasner Foundation Grant in 2018. His work is included in the collections of over 30 museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Sculptural works by many other artists are also included in the exhibition. Additionally, the exhibition includes a very special collection of over 150 Tea Bowls from around the world. This collection explores the significant aesthetic potential of contemporary tea bowls made for or inspired by, Japanese tea ceremony. This collection is an expansive survey of the influences and cross-cultural pollination that has produced interesting and beautiful bowls that transcend their intended utility and can be viewed as works of art. Community Arts Center Executive Director Paul Downie said, “We’re thrilled to present this exhibition which features work by award-winning artist Peter Callas and that embodies the wood-fired aesthetic as we officially announce the next major expansion of the CAC ceramics program and facility. The new project centers on the construction of a wood-fired ‘train’ kiln but also includes an expansion of the ceramics studio parking lot and upgrading of the electrical service in the studio. The kiln will be the newest addition to the CAC’s comprehensive ceramics facility, designed to maximize exposure to a wide variety of firing techniques for the ceramics community at the CAC and throughout the region. We hope to have the kiln completed this summer so stay tuned!” “The Art of Wood-Fired Ceramics” exhibition runs through March 6. Gallery hours are Mon. - Thurs. 9 a.m. - 7:30 p.m., Friday - 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and Saturday - 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. For a complete list of participating artists, info or driving directions, contact Community Arts Center at 610-566-1713, online at or follow on Facebook.

he Lankenau Medical Center Women’s Board has enhanced its commitment to the continued education of Medical Center nurses by announcing the transfer of $39,742.97 to the Board’s Nursing Excellence Fund. The fund



Women’s Board President Anne Becker, left (Lankenau Alumni ’78) of Wynnewood and Board Vice-President Charlotte Mackey, right (Lankenau Alumni ’83 and Lankenau Treasurer) of Kennett Square present the Nursing Excellence Fund check to Board member, Campus Nurse Executive, and Campus Chief Fran Cusick, center, of Sewell, NJ. supports nurses’ participation in conferences and other approved educational opportunities. This was made possible by re-purposing the resources previously associated with the Special Fund for Nursing Education toward the Board’s renewed emphasis on the ongoing continuing education of nurses. Monies will be held by the Lankenau Medical Center Foundation and distributed on an annual basis over the next ten years in accordance with the policies related to Nursing Continuing Education. The Nursing Excellence Fund continues to make a difference with gifts from grateful patients to the Foundation as well as employee and physician annual giving. All awards are managed by Lankenau Nursing Leadership and reported annually to the Women’s Board near fiscal year-end. Continuing Education for Nurses supports Nursing Excellence as affirmed through Lankenau/Main Line Health “Magnet®-Designated” Hospitals (American Nurses Credentialing Center).

PA Public Television, in Collaboration with the United Way of Pennsylvania, Awarded $170,000 for New Books and eBooks by Nonprofit First Book ennsylvania Public Television, in collaboration with the United Way of Pennsylvania, has been selected to receive an award of $170,000 for new books and eBooks. This award will extend the mission of both organizations, providing greater access to books for children in low-income districts. First Book, the nonprofit social enterprise focused on equal access to quality education for children in need, awarded the funds as part of its OMG Books Awards: Offering More Great Books to Spark Innovation, a program that will give more than $4.7 million in funding to distribute 1.5 million brand new books and eBooks to children living in lowincome communities in 33 U.S. states and territories. “Pennsylvania Public Television stations understand the magic of characters like Daniel Tiger, Big Bird and Curious George. We also understand the magic that happens for a child when they read with someone who cares for them,” said Ron Hetrick, President & CEO of WITF, one of the seven stations a part of Pennsylvania Public Television. “In an effort to help our communities live inspired, we are thrilled to work with our partners at the United Way and First Book to help make magic of reading happen for more children in Pennsylvania.” “First Book is helping public media partners and United Ways to resource proven local strategies which get free books into the hands of children of all ages from low-income communities across the state. Reading is the foundation for all learning, and books are the tool to develop those skills. We hope the books also encourage development of positive relationships with adults who will read First Book selections to young children, or help older children choose the next story they would like to read. Together we are changing Pennsylvania communities,” said Kristen Rotz, President of United Way of Pennsylvania. Awardees are using the funding to select books and eBooks from the First Book Marketplace (, First Book’s award-winning eCommerce platform, that best meet the needs of the children they serve. First Book estimates the total value of the books distributed will be more than $12 million. “We know that access to books and eBooks makes a significant difference in a child’s future success,” said Kyle Zimmer, First Book president, CEO, and cofounder. “Children do not thrive in deeply under-resourced environments and too many of the schools and programs have far too little. This deprivation has long-term consequences for the children, their families, their communities and our nation. This could not be more urgent. With the OMG Books Awards, First Book and Pennsylvania Public Television in collaboration with the United Way of Pennsylvania are investing not only in the future of the kids we’re reaching, but in the overall wellbeing of our nation.” Eligible educators, librarians, providers, and others serving children in need can sign up to receive resources from First Book outside of OMG Books Awards at For information, visit or follow the latest news on Facebook and Twitter.

he Walnut Street Theatre continues its 2019-20 Independence Studio on 3 season with the powerful one-man production, THURGOOD. Written by George Stevens, Jr., directed by Jerrell L. Henderson, and starring Johnnie Hobbs, Jr., the production began previews on January 7, opened January 14, and continues through February 9. Meet Thurgood Marshall: Lawyer. Civil Rights Activist. The first African American Supreme Court Justice. In the acclaimed Broadway play THURGOOD, you have a seat at a fictional lecture on his life given by Marshall at his alma mater. Experience his transformation from a young and spirited dissenter to a pensive Justice full of wisdom. From his early days as a civil rights lawyer to his appointment to the highest court in the land, Thurgood Marshall stood for justice while lifting the standing of his race, and all Americans. Before joining the Supreme Court in 1967, Thurgood Marshall made a profound impact for African American rights in the United States – most notably during his long-fought battles against the Supreme Court’s 1896 ruling in Plessy v. Ferguson. The case gave federal sanction to “separate but equal” public facilities for black and white citizens. In a long series of legal cases, Marshall served as chief counsel for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. He successfully ended the sanctioned racism inherent in the Plessy v. Ferguson case in Marshall’s victory in the famous 1954 case of Brown v. Board of Education, which significantly advanced the civil rights movement over the next decade. African American activism is still very much alive in the United States, making the themes and questions THURGOOD poses relevant in the political landscape of today. In response to injustices affecting the country’s African American communities, nation-wide social movements like Black Lives Matter have proven that the country’s conversation surrounding race equality is far from over. Just 54 years removed from the ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, theatre critic Charles Isherwood noted in his 2008 review of the Broadway production that “the play serves as a healthy reminder that separate drinking fountains, to cite one shameful practice, are just a generation or two in the past” (Isherwood, The New York Times). Former WST Acting Apprentice Jerrell L. Henderson makes his Walnut Street Theatre directorial debut with THURGOOD. Henderson is an Assistant Professor of Performance Studies at Chicago State University and serves as an Artistic Associate of Black Lives Black Words, helping black artists develop and produce new works that address social issues affecting people of color. His recent directing credits include The River with BoHo Theatre, Something Like A War: A New Musical with 11th Hour Theatre, and Untitled with Inis Nua Theatre. Playing the role of Thurgood Marshall is Walnut and Philadelphia favorite Johnnie Hobbs, Jr. Hobbs has been seen in the Walnut’s Independence Studio on 3 in Oleanna (2018), The Other Place (2016), and Driving Miss Daisy (2014). He is currently an Emeritus Associate Professor at the Ira Brind School of Theatre Arts at the University of the Arts. In 2015, he won the Barrymore Lifetime Achievement Award for his impact both on stage and in the classroom. As an actor, Hobbs has performed at most of Philadelphia’s major local theatres, including Philadelphia Theatre Company, the Arden, 1812 Productions, the Freedom Theatre, and the Philadelphia Drama Guild. He is a four-time Barrymore nominee. Tickets are $37 and are now available at 215-574-3550 or 800-982-2787. Tickets are also available at or
