When 9-year old orphan Shula is accused of witchcraft, she is exiled to a witch camp run by Mr. Banda, a corrupt and inept government official. Tied to the ground by a white ribbon, Shula is told that she will turn into a goat if she tries to escape. As the only child witch, Shula quickly becomes a local star and the adults around her exploit her supposed powers for financial gain. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom. A hit at over 50 international festivals.  

Location:  Historic Yuma Theatre

Exhibits:
 
Central Gallery:
CARRYING ON - Works by George Strasburger
"In general, these paintings depict humanity in I hope a noble and respectful way. These are people, alone and in groups "carrying on" through their situations, in a manner that represents us all as we carry on. Walking and carrying are metaphors for living and the emotional "baggage" that make us who we are. In addition, some figures represent our ways of relating to each other, or not relating. And other paintings are single character studies, all with a life and a story."
 
West Gallery:
THE ARCHITECTURE OF SILENCE - Works by Pepe Belmonte
Pepe Belmonte’s Art Exposition “La Arquitectura del Silencio“(The Architecture of Silence), is a one-way ticket trip to the strings of our own soul membranes. It helps us understand that the soul, silence, and God are not separate elements and that one without the other cannot exist. In fact, it is very possible that they are made of the same materials. Each work is named after the Shriner Hospitals for Children, where the artist will donate all proceeds from art sales. 
 
North & South Gallery:
RE-invited to AT-TEND - Works by Cheryle Marine
“As I was taking a rubbing in the street of a manhole cover, a street woman stood over me and said, after a few moments of observation, ’Finding what is hidden within?’ Perception creates reality. By tracing, rubbing and casting the objects I surround myself with, I have an intimate opportunity to AT.TEND my reality and examine them in form and composition. This work investigates objects that contain memory in shape, purpose or a moment in time.”
 
Installation:
COSMIC KALEIDISCOPE - Works by Sandy Kaminsky
We collect things along the journey of life. Mirrors reflect the image of how others see ourselves, but to also let us truly look and see who we are. Decorated with bobbles from our past to remind us of who we were, are and who we can become.
 
he Yuma Art Center is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Gallery exhibits are free to view without admission charge.
