With the semester starting back up on the 13th of January, our galleries will be occupied and Marywood will be hosting many interesting art events on campus. This is also my last blog post before our new On Campus Art News blogger Kelly takes over. I don’t want to steal too much of her thunder, so for now I’ll give a quick preview of some events coming up this semester!
Terezin and Kurdistan-A Journey
The first gallery show when we get back serves as the introduction to the virtual Holocaust and Genocide Studies Center at Marywood. It will be in the Suraci Gallery from January 23 to February 28, 2016. It is an exhibition of photographs taken by Communication Arts professor Michael Mirabito in 2014 in Terezin and Kurdistan, which are areas plagued by genocide.
Clipped, Ripped and Reassembled
Starting March 19th, 2016 in the Suraci Gallery, this show featuring the work of Associate Professor Pamela Parsons will be up on display. Her new collage work consists of small pieces of “visual history” including diagrams, magazines, and children’s books.
On April 6th, 2016, the “Get Your Masters With The Masters” MFA program is holding its first ever open house in the Learning Commons. This Masters program at Marywood is for designers and illustrators, mostly for those who want to pursue full time jobs with their degree. Director Steven Brower will be giving a tour and there will be talks by different leaders in the industry.
This year’s Senior Exhibit will be held on April 16th, 2016. It serves as a fun farewell and opportunity to showcase all the undergraduate seniors’ efforts here at Marywood. Work will be shown from art education, art therapy, graphic design, illustration, painting, and photography majors.
It looks like we have a great lineup of interesting events for this semester, and there are plenty more to come. Kelly will be keeping you up to date with those as well as bringing you some new alumni updates. Thanks for reading my posts this past year, and hope to see you around campus! 🙂
