The Henry Luce the Third Center for the Arts and Religion
would like to wish all of you a
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
2017 has been quite a year. Construction on campus created many challenges that disrupted many of our normally scheduled events and projects. In October, the artwork and pianos that had been temporarily stored in the gallery to protect them during the process were returned to their proper places. Our curator Kiki McGrath took the opportunity to rotate the collection. If you are on campus and are looking for a favorite piece, the arts staff will be happy to direct you to its new location. We invite you to take some time to get to know unfamiliar works that you may not have encountered in the past.
A day in the life of Wesley. Returning a piano to Oxnam Chapel.
With the art and pianos out of the gallery, we were able to open for the first show of the year on October 16th. ReFORMation is a juried show looking at impact of the Reformation on artists today. Images of the exhibition along with artist statements and interviews can be found on the show page. The next show, featuring our recent Artists-in-Residence, will open on January 17th. We are pleased to announce with this new show the gallery will be open on the 2nd Saturday each month. Look for details in the New Show announcement in January.
In November, we had two special events on campus, To Be Known and The Power of Spirituals. To Be Known was a dance workshop led by Catherine Sparks and Josie Hoover. It was the first of The Workshops@Wesley, a new series of half-day arts related Saturday workshops that will continue in the new year. Look for information on these Spring workshops in the January
