Next up at sTudio 6 Gallery is "Emerging: Paintings by Christina Sarquiz." Running from June 5 through June 27, this is an exhibition of small luminous oil pastels and larger abstract oil paintings that explore fictitious landscapes through subtle color harmonies and invite the viewer into their search for balance, depth and emerging forms.

"Nunsense" is the very funny musical being presented by the Rockaway Theatre Company June 4 through June 19 at the Post Theater in Fort Tilden. Written by Dan Goggin and directed by Peggy Page, it is the story of five nuns who put on an evening’s entertainment to raise funds for…well, I won’t reveal that just yet. Rockaway Theatre Company and the Rockaway Music and Arts Council, in partnership with Gateway National Recreation Area, invite you to a special 7 p.m. performance on Saturday, June 5. The performance of "Nunsense" will be followed by a Gala Champagne Cocktail Party in building T-149. Featured will be hot and cold hors d’oevres, decadent desserts, free-flowing champagne and a vow-of-silence auction. You can dance to the big band sounds of Walt and the Family Jewels. There will be raffles and prizes. Tickets are $40. Reservations are limited so respond now. Log onto the RTC website for details: www.rockawaytheatrecompany.org. I have it on the word of Reverend Mother – this will be a blast.
