The Donna Beam Art Gallery kicks-off the Fall term with an exhibition of work by the most recent professor of the department of art. Marcus Civin, Cara Cole, Ashley Doughty, Kay Leigh Farley, Michael Fong, Frederic Bonin Pissarro, and Sean Slattery each will reveal examples of their present work.
An emphasize of the evening will be an efficiency piece by Marcus Civin, the new art department chair. The piece is called, “Complete Orchestra,” and it is part sculpture, part puppet program, part experimental performance. The installation will include: an ordinary-looking work table that works as a giant drum; bronze hats that work as bells; columns to include the noise of glass breaking; and hand-held props for additional percussive effects. Specifically crafted wooden feet will be used to play the drum, and the bronze top hats will be played with hammers.
Please join us for a reception in their honor 5:30 -7:30 p.m. Friday, August 31.
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.– 5 p.m.; Saturday Twelve noon– 5pm. Closed Sundays and vacations.
The gallery lies in the Alta Ham Fine Arts Structure and is complimentary and open to the public.
