Dalí BY DEANNA ALLEN STAFF WRITER deanna.allen@gwinnettdailypost.com

The 1940s ushered in an artistic era in which one of the most famous — and most controversial — painters of the 20th century reinvented himself as an artist. The body of work created by eccentric Spanish painter Salvador Dalí during the last 40 years of his life are a visual exploration of science, psychology and religion and the subject of the exhibition “Salvador

Dalí: The Late Work,” now on display at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art. Comprised of more than 100 works — about 40 paintings and related drawings and prints as well as film, sculptures and photographs — it’s the first major exhibition to re-evaluate the final era of Dalí’s artistic life. Presented in collaboration with the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Fla., the exhibit includes several works that have not been seen in the U.S. in

IFYOUGO • What: “Salvador Dalí: The Late Work” • When: Through Jan. 9 • Where: High Museum of Art, 1280 Peachtree St. N.E. in Atlanta • Cost: $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and college students, $11 for children ages 6 to 17 and free for children younger than 6 • For more information: Call 404733-4437 or visit www.high.org

Stage star DeGarmo comes close to home for latest project BY DEANNA ALLEN STAFF WRITER deanna.allen @gwinnettdailypost.com

She went from the city where everybody’s somebody to the “American Idol” stage and then on to Broadway. Now, Snellville’s own Diana DeGarmo is returning to Georgia as Doralee Rhodes in “9 to 5: The Musical,” a role made famous by Dolly Parton. DeGarmo, runner-up on the third season of the reality TV show “American Idol” and whose Broadway credits include “Hair,” “Hairspray”

and “Brooklyn: The Musical,” will take the stage at the Fox Theatre as Doralee from Sept. 28 through Oct. 3. The musical comedy, which follows three unlikely friends who conspire to take control of their company and learn there’s nothing they can’t do, even in a world dominated by men, is presented by the regional theater company Theater of the Stars. Tickets for “9 to 5: The Musical” are on sale now and can be purchased through Ticketmaster outlets by calling 800-9822787 or visiting www.ticketmaster.com.
