earlymaysThe Early Mays are comprised of Emily Pinkerton, Ellen Gozion and Rachel Eddy. This is the final show of the year and there is no better way to end the season with this wonderful trio of musicians. 

Friday, December 2, 7pm  $15, RSVP in advance to the Gallery. BYOB.

From a previous show by The Early Mays: “WOW… What an evening… To say that I am truly impressed with The Early Mays would be such an understatement … The musical talents of these women leaves me awestruck! They are each gifted with beautiful voices, but when they weave together in harmony, it becomes a tapestry whose beauty left me deeply touched…” Casey Deely of Common Threads. http://www.theearlymays.com/

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.
