Art Gallery Reception

On Monday, September 4, at 4:30 pm, the Richard F. Brush Art Gallery will present a Poetry for Peace event in the gallery. On of the artists in the papermaking exhibition, Ben Aleshire, will also read a poem. The reading will be followed by a reception with current exhibition curators, Drew Matott and Jana Schumacher, and other local papermakers.

Exhibition: Hand Papermaking

While making paper by hand dates back to China ca. 105 C.E., the practice has only been used as a form of artistic expression in its own right for past century. Dard Hunter is considered a leading 20th-century authority on the craft of handmade paper after his publication of Old Papermaking (1923) and Papermaking by Hand in America (1950), in which he prepared every aspect of each book himself.


The SoundSandBox, an occasionally offered ensemble, is a place to explore ways of making sound together.  This semester's group, directed by David Henderson, presents the fruits of their explorations.  

Free admission.  Open to the public.

Dark Water by David Stallings is a new play about the journey of the animals changed by the Louisiana oil spill as they face the dark water. Angela Sweigart-Gallagher, director.
