“Chronic Hyperreality” closed out a successful series of senior shows on April 18. The six participating seniors presented an extensive collection of pieces of various themes and mediums.

Lydia Craddock, Megan Stucky, Allen Love, Lisa Co, Fiona Johné and Kayla Van Sice are all art seniors graduating in less than a month, and this show served as their capstone requirement.

“Chronic Hyperreality is the fusion of fiction and reality,” Craddock said.

What do you do when a fight breaks out in the middle of a play? Do you rush up onto the stage to help break up the fight, join in with the cast as they cheer or simply sit back and enjoy the show?

The answer is quite obvious when it’s the Armstrong Masquers presenting “Godspell” – you just let the pieces fall where they may.

“I’ve seen a version of Godspell before, but this one was way better,” Catherine Rice, a Liberty County High School student, said. “It was fun and I liked the music.”

There are many who do not care for Wes Anderson’s films. They are non-mainstream, quirky and weird films that often revolve around unflattering individuals usually in the midst of some mid-life crisis. His films have a very specific aesthetic that can easily annoy some viewers with their repetitiveness and character-alienating features.

Though he does not appeal to many moviegoers, Anderson’s loyal fan base has stuck by him since his film debut “Bottle Rocket” in 1996 and enjoyed the six offbeat dramedies he has made since. His latest film “The Grand Budapest Hotel” features a huge ensemble cast and one of Anderson’s most energetic and madcap story lines yet with a film that is bound to reach all audiences.

There are not many places in Savannah where one can find Bowie-inspired sequential art, giraffe sculptures and a giant ceramic bust under the same roof. Fortunately for lovers of the eclectic gallery show, Ashmore currently has all those pieces and more.

The third of four Armstrong capstone exhibitions, “At This Rate,” hosted its reception at Ashmore Gallery on April 4. The five graduating seniors showing their work were Adam Uhlig, Jud Wichers, Sarah Sexton, Morgan Zilm and George Papadopoulos.

Immediately upon entering the gallery, Uhlig’s giant ceramic head was the first thing visitors saw. “Breakthrough” is a massive clay bust that took over 40 hours to make and was first revealed at last fall’s Raku Pizza Night.
