September Events
Artfully Autistic Molly Rose—Friday Friday night, September 9, was blessed with rain after a long pandemic drought when Lloyd Sax, founder of Artists Matter gallery, held a post-pandemic reopening event, a blend of mocktails, music by Leftover Cuties. (leftovercuties.com) and art. Featured artist Molly Rose, a young adult on the autism spectrum, was also back after the pandemic dry spell to display her fanciful, playful paintings. She is a one-of-a-kind artist who connects with others primarily through her love of art, music and humor. At the age of twelve, she showed her art for the first time at the Faulkner Gallery in Santa Barbara, and in 2020, she won first place in The Art of Autism contest for Women’s History Month. Her art shows up on walls of private collectors throughout the world and has been commissioned to design labels for Ozymandias Wines in New York and Shokrian Wines in California. The exhibit runs to September 30. Artists Matter is located at 129 S. Topanga Blvd., Topanga, CA 90290. Lloyd Sax can be reached at (310) 488.8797; lloyd@artistsmatter.org. —Pamela Mesaros
Topanga Actors Company (TAC) is back with The Watsons, Sept. 24 & 25, 2 p.m. TAC’s first in-person production since the Covid crisis, resumes at the Topanga Library with a staged reading of The Watsons. Inspired by Jane Austen’s unfinished novel, playwright Laura Wade tells the story of Miss Emma Watson.

Since Austen only wrote a fragment of the story, Wade must flesh it out and inserts herself into the story as a character called Laura. Twists and turns ensue as the ‘characters’ of the play start taking control of the story. Who will write Emma’s happy ending now? This sparklingly witty play looks under the bonnet of Jane Austen and asks: what can characters do when their author abandons them? It’s fun and surprising and a grand re-opening play for our live reader’s theater experience.

Topanga Library, 122 N. Topanga Canyon Bvd. Free tickets and open seating. Reception to follow. Info: topangaactorscompany.org. This program is not sponsored or endorsed by L.A. County Library.
