Cal Shakes' Summer Shakespeare Conservatory for ages 8-18 offers a theater experience rooted in the same passion for artistic exploration and excellence that guide our award-winning Main Stage productions. We foster self-expression and artistic discipline to engage students in the theater-making process. Participants spend the morning playing and creating in a wide variety of theater disciplines, taught by working theater professionals. Afternoons are spent in rehearsals. The experience culminates in Shakespeare performances for family and friends at the end of the program.

"Primal Visions": New Artwork by Lou Bermingham
“Primal Visions”, recent paintings and mixed media works by Lou Bermingham, opens on First Friday, August 1 and continues until September 6. A reception for Bermingham will take place Saturday, August 2, from 2 to 4 pm, when he will be available to meet gallery visitors.
Lou Bermingham was raised in the Sierra Foothills outside Sacramento. He moved to the Bay Area and attended San Jose State University, where he received his degree in Fine Arts. In 2011, Lou had a solo exhibition of his paintings at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara, for which the museum published a catalogue. Preston Metcalf, Chief Curator at the Triton Museum, says of Lou's work, “His art springs from that inner well of symbol and metaphor to which we all have access but from which only a few of us draw."
Says Lou, “I'm constantly reworking shapes, symbols, or totemic animals which I've explored over time… for me, art is a continuum stretching back to prehistory and is an investigation into light, life, and consciousness itself.”
