Sculptor talk in West Palm Beach

When it comes to the famous (and incredibly artistic) Phipps family, talent comes naturally. It’s no different for Hubert Phipps, who just finished a residency at the New York Studio School, and opens his first solo exhibition at the Center for Creative Education this weekend. The exhibition features preliminary drawings of sculptures-to-be and small-scale works and Phipps, who mostly works in sculpture, will be speaking at the center Saturday to promote the opening. This is for all up-and-coming artists and visual art fans alike.

Hubert Phipps, “Drawings for Sculpture”: Exhibition opens Friday night and runs through March 17. An reception will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday. Entry is $10. A lecture featuring Phipps will occur from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday. RSVP to jonathono@cceflorida.org to secure a seat. Center for Creative Education, 425 24th St., West Palm Beach. Info: 561-805-9927.

‘The Revolutionists’

Putting playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, activist Marianne Angelle and former Queen Marie Antoinette in one room might sound like a Francophile’s fever dream. However, fans of French history and feminism can rejoice this weekend at FAU’s Theatre Lab, where these four women will come together for a comedic performance of “The Revolutionists,” a piece by renowned playwright Lauren Gunderson. This is the play’s Florida premiere, so be sure to support local theaters bringing in this kind of national talent and buy a ticket today!

“The Revolutionists”: Friday through Feb. 25. Tickets are $35 each. FAU Theatre Lab at Parliament Hall, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton. Info: 561-297-6124.

SPLURGE

A night of comedy 

Quotes, jokes and mannerisms from the 1990s hit show “Seinfeld” permeate the cultural lexicon to this day. The show lives on (and on), and no two individuals know that more than comedians Steve Hytner and Scott LaRose. Hytner played Kenny Bania, a “hack” comedian on seven episodes of the sitcom, while LaRose had a brief role as one of Elaine’s potential love interests. Of course, they’ve enjoyed roles in other television shows and movies, plus decades of experience on the comedy circuit. The two join together for “Seinfeld Night at Old School Square” on Saturday. 

Seinfeld Night: 8 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Tickets start at $47. Crest Theatre at Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach. Info: 561-243-7922.

The verdict is in on whether standing desks help you lose weight

Are standing desks really doing us any good? That question has divided workplaces since sitting started going out of fashion about five years ago. Our sedentary lifestyles were killing us, so standing, the thinking went, was the logical antidote. Sitting too long has been associated with diabetes, hypertension, some forms of cancer, anxiety and a generally...
