The Other Mozart was a one woman play recently showing at the Rubicon Theatre. The work of local artists are on display in the new downstairs gallery and can be viewed when attending events at the Rubicon. The gallery will be open to visitors an hour before the show starts and directly after the performance.
The paintings will constantly be changing.
Mary-Gail King displayed 15 of her painting in the gallery some inspired by the other Mozart. She stated “When I first heard the story of Mozart’s sister, the saddest thing about it wasn’t that she worked in obscurity but that none of her music survived. Women’s work has often been seen as less important than men’s. In creating new work for The Other Mozart I wanted to explore feminine creativity. As the work unfolded I rediscovered that creativity is about human potential which encompasses all genders.”
