Arts & Culture Guy: Movies and events this weekend

A new exhibit at the Davis Dominguez gallery featuring three prominent Tucson artists capturing the beauty of nature, unique animal forms in bronze and abstract expressionism's riot of colors and shapes.

Works by sculptor Mark Rossi, and painters James Cook and Josh Goldberg, are currently on display at the gallery, located at 154 East Sixth Street. This trio of artists represents a wide range of styles and subject matter, and make for a spectacular show. The artwork is on display through December 29.

The Invisible Theatre is currently presenting "Mesa." The Canadian play, which is having its United States premier, is a comedy that follows an 30-something man and his wife's grandfather on a cross-country road trip that opens both their eyes to the world. The play is on-stage through December 2 at the Invisible Theatre, located at 1400 North 1st Avenue, at Drachman Street.

A benefit and an art show wrapped into one is now taking place at the Drawing Studio, located at 33 South Sixth Avenue downtown. Entitled "Small Wonders" the exhibit features the work of Drawing Studio faculty, students and supporters who have all created smaller works whose sale benefits the 11 year-old institution. All reasonably priced, the Drawing Studio is making holiday gift giving easy for art lovers.
