Please join us for this special exhibition featuring student artwork, a collaboration between the Stone House Center for Public Humanities and the Slippery Rock University Art Society in conjunction with National Arts and Humanities Month.

National Arts and Humanities Month (NAHM) is a coast-to-coast collective celebration of culture in America. Each year since 1993, NAHM has helped give millions of Americans the opportunity to explore new facets of the arts and humanities in their lives and has encouraged them to begin a lifelong habit of active participation.

The SRUAS is a professional development group for emerging artists attending Slippery Rock University. We focus on giving our artists information and opportunities to grow and develop as young artists. This exhibition collectively showcases the different talents our artists possess, across a multi-medium spectrum.

Refreshments will be served.  No admission fee. We hope to see you!

Laura’s show will be on display from 11am til close on Saturday, October 8 with the show reception from 3pm-6pm,  live music and refreshments. . If you can’t be in Harmony that day, Laura’s show will be on display until October 23rd. Stop in and see her fabulous work during Gallery hours.

To encourage creativity and fun, a table will be set up with coloring sheets with crayons and markers for anyone to make their own sugar skull art.

Show Description:
When we think of skulls we often think of death and mortality. Within American culture, the artistic evolution of the skull has often represented scary concepts and rebellious ideas. The skull can be both fascinating and gruesome. However, in recent years, the sugar skull has gained in popularity within American culture as an attractive symbol that in some ways has counteracted the skull’s traditionally ghoulish nature.

Laura studied Visual Communications at both The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and Westminster College where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts Communications.

Rod Picot says, “Went to the Mountain Stage post show hang at The Empty Glass and listened to The Carpenter Ants…best gospel/bar band you’ve ever heard and yes, Gospel/Bar Band should be a Grammy category…”

Aug 12: House Concert with Tom Mason. There’s a Pirate in the house!

Posted on 01 August 2016 (0)

tom mason
Tom Mason is an amazing musician, song-writer, and actor. Growing up in the Twin Cities Mason found an early love for music and theater. Watching his brothers and grandfather play guitar lit the flame early for Mason. He received a banjo at age seven, but by age eleven he was playing guitar in open tunings with a wine bottle neck. He practiced everyday and decided early in life that he wanted to be a performer.

At this time the acting bug bit Mason and he started taking acting classes. He has continued to act in plays throughout the country. Vaudeville and old Marx Brothers movies made a huge impression on Mason and he has continued to play the crafts and antics of these performers in his own shows and music.
