Woodlawn Arts Academy will host virtual events at the beginning of December to open its annual art show and premiere its fall musical theatre performance.
The Winter Art Exhibit features comic art from Greg Wallace’s “Nothing Is Not Something” series. The comic strip now appears on the GO Comics website, a division of Universal Uclick. “Nothing Is Not Something” is a view of the world as seen through the dirty glasses of a boy named Wally. He’s a bit of a loner, a bit of a daydreamer and he has a bit of an attitude. Armed with his trusty pen, he fills his sketchbooks with scribbles and doodles forming a potpourri of ideas. With this collection, he hopes one day to become a world-famous artist, or at the very least, a cartoonist, the drunken-uncle of the art world.
The art show will open on Woodlawn Arts Academy’s Facebook page at 5pm Friday, Dec. 4. Wallace’s artwork will be on display at the Academy through Feb. 5 and is free to view during office hours. Woodlawn Arts Academy is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. In accordance with health department and CDC guidelines, face coverings and social distancing are required in the Academy building.
The same weekend will show the premiere of the Academy’s fall musical theatre production, “2020: The One Where We Did a Musical Revue.” The show features area students in first through eighth grade performing songs and scenes from “The Jungle Book Kids,” “Shrek Jr.,” “The Little Mermaid Jr.,” “Mulan Jr.” and “Seussical Jr.” Directed by Faith Morrison and Mardi Huffstutler, the production will premiere online at woodlawnartsacademy.com and Warrior TV at 7pm Saturday, Dec. 5. The recording will remain online at least through the end of the calendar year, and is free to view.
