Art: It’s encouraging to see Mulry Fine Art reopen in Palm Beach's Paramount building after closing its gallery space in West Palm Beach last fall. Fecia Mulry has been in the gallery business for 18 years. The focus of her galley, she says, is to "exhibit the works of emerging artists working in all media.” Opening Saturday is Summer at The Paramount, featuring the work of Brooklyn painter Lucy Fradkin, Tequesta photographer Wheaton Mahoney, Armory Art resident and sculptor Bethany Krull, and bead work by Gulf Stream resident Peg Mulry. The show will run through July 31.

The gallery is located in the courtyard of The Paramount Building, 139 North County Road in Palm Beach. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. and by appointment. For further information, call (561) 832-8224 or e-mail -- K. Deits

in FAU's summer production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.

Theater: Florida Atlantic University opens its summer repertory season this weekend with Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, an often-boisterous comedy of secret identities, gender confusion, thwarted love, and a pompous manservant who unwittingly plays the fool. Director Jean-Louis Baldet has switched the original Illyrian setting to that of Hollywood in the Roaring Twenties, which ought to give the play the same kind of manic energy successful productions seem to need. FAU will mount a preview of its summer rep season, which includes Stephen Sondheim's great 1970 musical, Company, in a free show at 7 p.m. Friday at Mizner Park in Boca Raton.

Twelfth Night can be seen at 2 p.m. Fridays (June 26 and July 10); 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturdays (June 20, 27 and July 11); and 2 p.m. Sundays (June 21 and July 12). Tickets: $15-20. Call 1-800-564-9539 or visit
