Looking Back, Looking Forward

Did you catch Leticia Bajuyo while she was here last week?  Thanks to Professor Daniel Graham and Kappa Pi Prez Kelsey who assisted with the de-install!  Note to the pink slinkys:  we will always remember you!

Speaking of Kappa Pi, the club's first meeting is happening TODAY at 12 noon.  Please check it out!  Speaking of checking things out, Art Tigers--they're GRRREAT!--- will be meeting Tuesdays in the Jacobs Gallery, 12:15-12:45, beginning next week.

And, you know you don't want to miss the Closing Reception and Panel Discussion for the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery exhibitions, El Grabado Mexicano: Prints from Mexico and Derechos en Tierra Ajena: Works by Rosa Angelica Gomez Mier, Thursday evening, September 2 from  5-7 p.m. with a panel discussion (NEXUS credit) from 5:30-6:30.  Two distinguished art faculty members are participating:  Professors Daniel Graham and Jamie Ratliff.  

On Sunday, I attended a sort of retrospective event, "DENNIS FEST,"  a party honoring an artist who has spent most of his distinguished career assisting other artists.  Dennis Harrington is a friend and respected advisor of countless numbers of arts professionals.  I encourage you to check out the space he has curated, designed, and directed for around 15 years now, the Alice F. and Harris K. Weston Art Gallery in downtown Cincinnati:  http://westonartgallery.com/   The "Fest" event was full of looking back, at Dennis's contributions to the regional arts community and at artists, young and old, whom he has nurtured throughout all stages of their lives.  Far from being subdued, the crowd was upbeat and positive, for Dennis's future is bright: he's at the midpoint of his career, not the end.  The arts live on, through our mentors and through us!  Keep the arts moving forward, fellow travelers--get involved in your arts community!
