Leading off this week’s edition of Found Objects is the Texas Pete Twin City RibFest, a four-day food festival event at the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds in Winston-Salem beginning on Thursday and running through Sunday, June 14. Last year’s event attracted approximately 30,000 people. There will be 11 nationally known ribbers at the event, including Winston-Salem favorites Dr. Brownstone’s BBQ and Bibs Downtown. The festival will also include performance stages with regional and national music acts. Admission is $6 for adults ($4 in advance at Lowes Foods, or bring a can of food for the Northwest NC Food Bank); children 12 and under get in free. For more information visit www. Also on Thursday, Triad Stage’s production of Moliére’s classic comedy Tartuffe takes the stage at the venue located at 232 S. Elm St. in Greensboro. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sunday. Tartuffe will hold 8 p.m. shows on Fridays and Saturdays with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee as well. Translated by Curtis Hidden Page and directed by Preston Lane, Tartuffe tells the story of a hilarious hypocrite Tartuffe who shakes up the very comfortable life of Orgon. At Lyndon Street Artworks, Karen Bjork Dischell’s series entitled One Tree One Month has been continued through June and July. Come see works by some of the area’s top painters and sculptors, including Charlotte and Erik Ström, Angela M. Jamison, Emmett Williams, Anne Marie Davis, Ernie and Lois Rich, Jim Petersen, Lida Witherspoon, Susan Ridenour, Julie McKnight and many more. Formerly Crutchfield Plumbing, Lyndon Street Artworks houses over 25 working art studios with more than 40 resident artists in more than 15 mediums and one gallery. Its goal is to “emphasize the creative process of making art and to make the artist as relevant as the art.” On June 16, Seniors Reaching Out hosts auditions for new performers at the Community Theatre of Greensboro, Studio 413 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The group will begin a program that will perform a once a week for fiveweek program at five senior facilities run by the Adult Center for Enrichment. Participants will perform songs, skits and other performances and will also lead the workshop exercises at the facilities. No experience necessary.
