Oct 6-20: Book-Not-Book International Collaboration Exhibit

Posted on 03 October 2017 (0)

We are proud to host two exhibits this October. The first is “Book-Not-Book,” an exhibition of unique and handmade books created by students in the Fiber Art Studios at Slippery Rock University and Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland. The collaboration between these studios has spanned 4 years, initiated by Barbara Westman, Associate Professor of Art at SRU. Every year, students from both schools work on the same assignment and, later, both collections of artworks are presented in an exhibition in Poland and in the US. It is a unique opportunity for the students involved and for the community to see how the same assignment can be interpreted by students from different countries and cultures. The exhibit will be on display from October 6-October 20. There is no admission charge.

Sept 30: Kim Richey (7pm show)

Posted on 19 September 2017 (0)

Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life’s truths, Kim’s songs transport you to her world, where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul. Richey’s still dreaming up fetching melodies that arc and bend in unexpected ways, and still discovering fresh angles from which to articulate matters of the heart. http://www.kimrichey.com/

 

Saturday Show – September 30, 2017  7pm, $20.  Limited Seating – RSVP Required.

May 19: Malcolm Holcombe (North Carolina) House Concert

Malcolm Holcombe has a knack for exploring the depths of the working class life, good and bad. He is a storyteller, and his songs have history. “Papermill Man” in particular captures the gritty banalities of mill work in a vivid, descriptive way: “Smoke blowing up in the air/One room shack/One room school…Sawmill sawdust stuck in your lungs/And your head can’t hear the thunder,” he sings, transporting us to this one-horse town that sucks its people in. Holcombe has always been a classic troubadour, a little rough around the edges, no frills and as authentic as it gets.
