Producers hope their colorful characters and costumes make a splash on stage in “Once Upon a Mattress,” the spring musical of the Glendale Community College theatre arts department. It’s quite a contrast in tone from last semester’s drama “Savage in Limbo,” said director Melissa R. Randel, co-chairwoman of the department. “It was really dark and serious and dramatic and this is like eating cotton candy and watching ‘I Love Lucy’ or cartoons,” Randel said.

48 HOURS At first glance, one is enchanted by the vibrant color palette of a Gerane Mooney oil. But study a piece and you'll also realize the great detail. The La Canada Flintridge resident prefers painting in oil only. "I tried everything, but oil is more me," she said, "you can play with it without messing it up." Her subjects have been landscapes and animals, but she is more known, she said, for her florals, which have found a perfect backdrop displayed in the Boddy House Gallery at Descanso Gardens.

This just in: A Southern California man has just lifted a half ton of crates and carried them across a warehouse — in his mouth. Not far away, a certain stage show has been deemed so dazzling that it made one reviewer feel as if she were struck by the process of fading. And in the Catalina area, a tourist has learned how to propel himself forward on a bicycle through the sheer power of salesmanship. Welcome to News of the Jeered, a new segment in which we make fun of other people’s mistakes even though they don’t deserve it. The reason the authors of these accidental news items don’t deserve this mockery is that their mistakes are very understandable and very common.

Ireland's hills roll forever, folding over and underneath each other. They are a sea within a sea, this island of grassy hillocks pocked with farms and fences. I had seven days in which to capture them as grandly as I could. My trusty Canon committed these autumn memories to bits and bytes; by the end of it all the castles and rainbows and deeply mossed forest glens told a story of adventure in a perfect glossy palette. It is a palette of surprise. The digital era has made portraitists and landscapists of us all, increasing our appetite and our capacity for photography.

The Burbank Art Association's annual fall art show offers a particularly fine selection of paintings in this seasonal contest. The show is categorized into the customary genres, but it is the landscape class that steals this show. The Burbank Creative Arts Center Gallery opens its doors to the art alliance exhibition and the Don Jarvis and Karen Bauman Memorial Awards are presented to selected winners in two divisions: the Honors Division, which requires that entrants have participated and been award recipients in previous contests; and the Open Division, where Burbank Art Association members begin their contest experience.

The playground at Emerson Elementary School was transformed into an art canvas Thursday, as students used chalk and oil pastels to create original works of art in observance of California Arts Day. Arts Day is a nationwide day that celebrates the importance of the arts in education, said Emerson PTA President Karen Broderick. The school celebrates Arts Day with an annual chalk-art festival that involves not only students, but parents, local artists and community members, she added.

Rubén Procopio’s maquettes of beloved Disney characters, such as Belle and Ariel, stand side-by-side under the watchful gaze of painted dragons, hand-drawn mermaids and other mythical creatures at a new exhibit at the Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale. Procopio’s small-scale statues are a part of the “Visions: The World of Fantasy Art” exhibit and on loan from the Glendale-based Animation Research Library of the Disney Animation Studios. More accurately called maquettes, the statues, ranging between 4 to 20 inches tall, are initially made from polyform or “sculpy” and cast in polyurethane using silicone molds, said Procopio, a resident of Burbank.

Ongoing renovation at the historic Brand Library and Art Center in Glendale forced organizers to secure a new location for this year's annual art exhibition, but they found a willing and generous venue in the Burbank Creative Arts Center. Juror Bonese Collins Turner culled carefully through hundreds of entries from across the United States to choose various award winners for “Brand 41: Works on Paper: Memories,” which remains open through Wednesday. The Burbank Creative Arts Center is much smaller than the Brand Gallery, but there is plenty of room to display the winners and a reasonable representation of the entries, all of which are de facto honorable mentions.
