Fine Arts Center hosts two exhibits
Take a break from routine this fall with a visit to the Fine Arts Center, where two exhibits are on display.
Works by 16 ceramics artists from BGSU and Northern Arizona University who have received the Aaron Macy scholarship are featured in the Dorothy Uber Bryan Gallery. The show will culminate on Sept. 17 with an artist panel discussion and reception at 7 p.m. in 204 Fine Arts Center.
Opening tomorrow (Aug. 31) in the Willard Wankelman Gallery is “Re-imagining the Distaff Toolkit.” Each work of art in the exhibit has at its core a tool that was important to women’s domestic labor in the past. The old tool becomes the fulcrum for a contemporary work of art.
Among the 28 artists in the show is Debra Priestley, who will give a guest lecture at 7 p.m. Sept. 24 in 204 Fine Arts Center. Priestley teaches at Queens College, City University of New York.
“Re-imagining the Distaff Toolkit” runs through Sept. 26.
Gallery hours for both shows are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, 6-9 p.m. Thursdays and 1-4 p.m. Sundays.
