Fall semester is winding down but check out the activity in the Art Galleries! Art Tigers Interactive Meeting at Noon on Tuesday, December 13 in the Jacobs Gallery and then on Thursday:

Of Liberty, copyright 2011 Marjorie Guyon
Cochenour Gallery, Ensor Learning Resource Center
Thursday, December 15
Opening Reception, 5:00-8:00 PM with
Artist Talk at 5:30 PM with Special Guests, The Glendover Nation:
children from the YMCA of Central Kentucky's after-school program
Part of Georgetown's Antiques & ArtWalk

Artist Marjorie Guyon has created a public art project examining the question, "how do we form a more perfect union?"  Nation of Nations is by definition a local, regional, national and finally an international endeavor.  Guyon has selected Georgetown College as the first venue to host the traveling exhibition of her project. 

The ten panels printed on canvas in this exhibition echo the original works on view at the University of Kentucky's William T. Young Library through May 2012.  Guyon's mixed-media work features life-sized figures and provocative text.  Across the top of each panel the phrase "Have Mercy on Us" appears in the actual handwriting of our country's global citizens.   Intended to move people to consider how "we, the people" can create a more perfect union,
Nation of Nations poses a powerful question for our time.
