Opposites Attract Exhibition
Main Gallery
October 6 - November 16, 2017
This show opens in conjuction with a campus wide Open House

The concept of balance is necessary for a “successful” work of art. Movement, dynamism and energy compliment the quiet, subdued and calm. Artists are asked to look for elements or concepts that establish visual harmony in a work of art. Visual tension captivates us to watch the sparks fly!

Current Exhibition - Center for Performing Arts

The Art of Bean, Camargo and Pascovici
August 24 - October 14, 2017

These three artists believe in the power of arts education and self-expression. That is why in one way or another, each of them has dedicated their life to the arts. Kathleen Bean was a public school art teacher and has seen the transformation of young minds through the power of the arts. Her sculptures display a range of expression and freedom through their witty personalities, narratives and gestures. Hilarion Camargo is an accomplished puppeteer who teaches students how to make and perform with their creations. Alexander Pascovici has successfully re-invented himself many times but has found his most rewarding accomplishments in his poetry and abstract paintings. Don’t miss this exhibition loaded with color and whimsy!
