Patrick Dorow Productions Presents:  Nunsense

April 8-24

Winner of the Outer Critics' Circle awards for the best Off-Broadway Musical, Nunsense is a hilarious talent show staged by five survivors at the Little Sisters of Hoboken nunnery.

The remaining "Little Hobos" parade their talents at a variety show staged to raise funds so that the last four of the dearly departed can be buried. The score pulses with merriment and an unabashed desire to make you laugh, with songs and spontaneous comic interludes paced at break-neck speed.

ME Paintings:  Kittery to Stonington - Watercolors by Ken Fellows

Noted Maine artist Ken Fellows shares some beautful watercolors in this show.  The public is invited to a free Artist Reception with refreshments on Wednesday, February 3rd at 5:30pm. 

Fellows - Clothesline

“ME Paintings: Kittery to Stonington” is a beautiful exhibit of works in the Morgan Gallery by noted Maine artist Ken Fellows. The public is invited to an Artist Reception with refreshments on Wednesday, February 3rd at 5:30pm. Come hear the artist talk about the works and his process.

Ken Fellows is a retired academic physician who first took watercolor painting courses as something to do in his retirement. Upon retirement and moving to the family home in Kittery Point, he enrolled in a number of local art courses and workshops.  

“For the first time I also began to paint on my own,” says Fellows. “However, through the combined efforts of Dewitt Hardy, Norman West, Sean Beavers, David Dewey and others, at Sanctuary Arts in Eliot, The Heartwood College of Art in Kennebunk, and numerous workshops in the Seacoast area and elsewhere in Maine, my painting eventually progressed to a level that at least was not embarrassing to me, my family or my teachers. I will always be indebted to the local artists whose instruction was both sound and inspirational; theirs is a level of competence to which I can only aspire.”

His works are a blend of whatever interests him at the time. “I switch from outdoor landscapes to portraits to interior-scapes to old magazine covers.” Fellows continues, “Painting is pure pleasure to me and that’s why I do it.”

Fellows has had recent showings at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Café Art Gallery at York Hospital. His works are commonly a part of Kittery Art Association group shows as well. “ME Paintings: Kittery to Stonington” will be shown in the Morgan Gallery through March.

The Morgan Gallery, at the Kittery Community Center at Frisbee Common, is made possible through a generous donation by the Morgan Family of Kittery, ME. The gallery space is prominently located by the STAR THEATRE and provides a new venue for showcasing works by visual artists. The KCC Arts and Culture Committee is responsible for curating the programming and schedules an ongoing series of art exhibits to showcase visual artists. Professional artists are encouraged to submit works for review for future exhibits. All works are reviewed and juried by a sub-committee of the Arts and Culture committee.
