  • Jun 4, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 8:51PM

Indianola by way of England artist Elizabeth Reed Smith works with some of the most formidable symbols on Earth. Yet her style is so delicate that she counts a magnifying glass as just another piece of equipment. With magnifier in one hand, crow quill ink pen in the other, she endeavors a visual celebration of nature, one stroke at a time, through painstaking sketches of some of the planet’s most magnificent plant life — trees.

Bainbridge musical theatre to give itself, community an 'Ovation' on fifth birthday

  • Jun 4, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 8:48PM

Birthdays ending in zero or five tend to up the ante. So Ovation! Musical Theatre, on the cusp of its fifth, wants to celebrate big. “We’re having a party for ourselves, that we’re inviting the community to,” co-founder Marijane Milton said. Ovation, run by a board of directors and a dedicated group of volunteers, is typically extremely disciplined about staging its shows. After all, it’s lasted this long in large part through diligence and frugality. “All bootstraps,” said co-founder and board member Peter Denis of the group’s humble origins. “That was the thing of it. We’re ardent, we’re creative, and we have no money. How can we do something fantastic?” But on Saturday night at the Bainbridge Commons, they’ll let loose a little bit with “Saturday Night Safari – Singers Gone Wild.”

Edwards’ story of musical discovery mimics that of four other young musicians who will appear at Bainbridge Performing Arts on Sunday in the next Declassified Chamber Music concert.
