'Locker Room' Opening

News & Events

"Locker Room" is the work of Nathan Vincent, who explores gender permissions and the challenges that arise from straying from prescribed norms. The exhibition, which opens Sept. 3 in the Wallace L. Anderson Gallery at Bridgewater State University, questions the qualities of gender by considering what constitutes masculine and feminine. It critiques stereotypical gender mediums by creating "masculine objects" using "feminine processes" such as crochet, sewing and applique.

'Clipped Wings' Exhibition

News & Events

The Maxwell Library will open Emmanuel Jose's "Clipped Wings" Exhibition on Tuesday, Sept. 3. Jose decided to use his longtime fascination with playing cards to set a personal challenge: create a single giant paper-cut card each week. This challenge was done using traditional paper-cutting techniques and transformed the suites and pips of a standard deck into an imaginative display of our favorite birds. Cockatoos, pelicans and songbirds each have been rendered into the Jack of Clubs, the Three of Spades and the Two of Diamonds.

Repousse Work Featured

News & Events

Works of Linda Kindler Priest will be on display in Maxwell Library's Rare Book Room on the third floor from Sept. 3 through Oct. 31.

Each sculpture is a critical observation on our environment and to our relationship with the living world. They are developed by carefully combining imagery, textures, shapes, colors and chased surfaces, which are then finished with the selection and setting of precious stones and crystals.
