    At the Singer Gallery, Ary Stillman gets his moment in the light

    The story is well known in art circles and taught to students in art schools. Fifty to sixty years ago, a group of painters in New York began to develop the first truly American style of art: abstract expressionism. As a result of their efforts, for...

    Paragon's Love Song makes for a lovely evening

    Paragon Theatre's production of Love Song represents the best kind of marriage between a script and a theater company: The play provides fascinating, quirky roles that make actors look good, and where it has flaws, the production counters them. T...
