CONNECT: The College of Arts and Sciences Selects from The Maslow Collection is a celebration of the interconnectivity between all fields in higher learning and the recent reformation of the University’s College of Arts and Sciences. A faculty representative from each of the 10 disciplines within the College of Arts and Sciences curates a work from The Maslow Collection into the exhibition, then writes about the artwork’s relationship to their area of study. Unexpected and fascinating dialogues are generated, showing how critical, creative, and collaborative we all are in this environment. The exhibit will be on display through November 2, 2018. The Maslow Gallery is on the first floor of the Shields Center for Visual Arts.
Hetty Baiz: This Very Body, Mahady Gallery, Shields Center for Visual Arts, November 3 - December 1, 2018
Opening Reception: November 3, 5-7 p.m.
Gallery Talk: November 7, 3 p.m.
The exhibition features a series of figure paintings executed in mixed media on large wooden panels, and a group of portraits created from woven jute on canvas. The works are powerful presences, as ambiguous and ephemeral as they are haunting and visceral. The figural subjects of the paintings are absorbed into the deep materiality of Baiz's process, appearing to be both emerging from and dissolving into the rich surfaces. Through these paintings, Baiz is exploring the nature of the body, gender and spirit, asking questions about identity, mortality and time, and examining the transience of being in the world. The works convey a deep existential vulnerability that invites and rewards close examination.
Marywood University's Student Art Therapy Association is pleased to invite the Marywood community to Forward Toward Growth, an art exhibition celebrating personal growth and development.
The exhibition is taking place during First Friday events in Scranton, Friday, November 2, 5-8 p.m., on the basement floor of the Leonard Theater, 335 Adams Ave, Scranton, PA. Our inspiration derives from Abraham Maslow, a well known humanistic psychologist, who said, "One can choose to go backward toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again."
