Morning with the Milwards

Due to the cancellation of our opening and other scheduled events for Friday, March 2, we were unable to welcome the community to our galleries. However....

this morning I met with John and Luanne to show them the exhibition featuring works from their collection, "A Passionate Pursuit: The Milward Collection." We were accompanied by Greg Ladd, owner of Cross Gate Gallery (thank you, Greg for coming in from Florida for this visit!), and Jan Crouch, our college's First Lady and host for our reception (scheduled for last night, but to be rescheduled). Intern Julie Jones, class of 2010, and her beau Tyler joined us as well.

We enjoyed a look around together and came up with a few ideas for additional events to host in the coming weeks, including the re-scheduled exhibition opening and reception as well as a guided tour of this collection with Greg Ladd. Students in the course "The Art of Collecting" will be interested in these events particularly. And, props were given to the students for their research thus far on the artists and works in the show.

Stay tuned for further details about more Milward events.

PS: Thanks to prospective student, Emily, and her family for joining us this morning as well.
