Get a Life
















This is absolutely, definitely, certainly the last chance for you to see It's a Wonderful Life at the Dolphin theater in beautiful, downtown Empire.

Now you know you are sick to death of the Jimmy Stewart version and to tell the whole truth did you every, really buy Jimmy as George? No of course not, the Marlo Thomas version, It Happened One Christmas is so much better and besides it has Orson Wells as Potter and that's enough said.

But now you have a chance to see a live theater version right here in the beautiful Bay area and it would be a terrible shame to miss it and you wouldn't want people to say that YOU don't support local theater and you can take the Long Sufferin and get some extra points which will come in handy when she finds out what you bought yourself for Christmas and you can get away from the kids with all that sugar energy making even the dog hide and then when you get home no one will yell and scream when you turn on the football game which comes on after the 2:00 showing and you'll look like a big hero and not just the thing on the sofa.

So crack open the wallet, it's good for the moths to get a breath of fresh air every now and then and shell out the twenty bucks which you were just going to spend on beer and take the Long Sufferin and see a really great show and start the New Year as a good guy and not the dork you were all last year and wouldn't that be nice for a change, so go see It's a Wonderful Life and remember no beasts, no breasts, angel-foo, bell-foo, merriment-foo, Trawler-Bob says check it out!

It was a dark and stormy night

Why sit around waiting for the power to go out when you can join the Dolphin Players for their production of It's a Wonderful Life. You know you're going to watch it anyway so why not enjoy the excitement of live theater?

Theater is life
Film is art
television is furniture!


Besides if you come tonight you get to see The Ole Trawler himself taking the tickets and helping around the theater.

Now what could be better, great theater and seeing The Ole Trawler working, a sight seldom seen this century!

And you can do all of this and eat popcorn and drive in the rain and for only $10.00! You'd blow that on two lattes. Even less if you are a certified old fart or a small child. Children are $5 dollars and the senile rate is $8 so don't miss a chance to get something for letting your arteries harden!

And if you claim to be a small child you'd better be accompanied by a responsible parent. Try to find one of those on short notice.

And the Answer is...

Water : A transparent fluid which forms the world's streams, lakes, oceans, and rain. It's a major constituent of all living things. The human body is 90% water. It drips from our taps, it can be purchased in bottles (with or without bubbles), it fills swimming pools. It is plentiful in some places, scarce in other. 

Open to all media: Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture, and Video.

Submission deadline is February 10, 2015; entries can be submitted online or by mail. 

Juror Drew Lantrip: Drew Lantrip's work is inspired by his studies of 19th century painters. His interest is in painting as a visual language and its ability to evoke and express feelings and ideas universally. He studied classical drawing and oil painting at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. After graduating in 2010, he has spent time painting in Italy, the Netherlands, Portland, Oregon, and Tokyo, while he currently lives in Connecticut. He paints figurative works, landscapes, still lifes, and portraits in oil and teaches figure painting at the Wethersfield Academy for the Arts. For more information on the Juror: drewlantrip.com.
