Red River (Fiction)

For the newly freed black residents of Colfax, Louisiana, the beginning of Reconstruction promised them the right to vote, own property, and at last, control their own lives. But in the space of a day, angry whites would take back Colfax in one of the deadliest incidents of racial violence in Southern history, In the bitter aftermath, the Tademys and the Smiths will have to deal with the wreckage, push on, and build a better life for their sons and daughters over the next seventy years.

Burtynsky makes large-scale photographs of ‘manufactured landscapes’ – quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, dams.

Sutton Gallery in Sutton
On March 31st Arts Sutton presented its first member's show of the year. Recent works of about thirty artists will be featured, all created with the theme of "Awakening" in mind. Arts Sutton is proud to offer its members the opportunity to take part in two annual exhibitions. Drawing, painting, sculpting, photography, ceramic, and mixed media are all represented. Brigite Normandin, the curator of the exhibition, mentions that the theme was chosen to celebrate the arrival of spring. She invites visitors to witness how the artists interpret the theme of awakening as a double entendre, and in turn awaken our senses with their own brilliant renditions. This exhibition is on display until May 6th. Make way for imagination...
