Queering Our World

In anticipation of the Annual Mid-Atlantic LGBTQA Conference that will be held on campus Nov 7 & 8, 2015, assistant professor Dave Kube, Graphic Design, has juried a show entitled Queering Our World.

The group show will be held at The Gallery at Greenly Center, 50 E Main St, Downtown Bloomsburg, from Tues, Oct 12 to Fri, Nov 6. There will be a reception on Nov 6, 6-8pm. Queering our World features 13 artists from various locations who explore and expose voices of the queer community, bringing visibility to the spaces, aesthetics, and challenges. Through the exploration of domestic spaces, simple objects, queer fairy tales, and other visual aesthetics, these artists work to carve out a space in which queer can find representation through varying degrees of visual language.

Machines Bearing the Weight of Delicacy

The work of Chad Andrews of the Department of Art and Art History is currently on display at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, CT (through October 25). The museum's website describes Mr. Andrews' work as follows.

Using silicone and a caulking gun, artist Chad Andrews creates wall drawings of trucks, tractors and implements taken from his life on a farm for Machines Bearing the Weight of Delicacy. The physicality of materials, process and assemblage play a vital role in his imagery. These ephemeral, one-time installations are destroyed at the end of the exhibition, and will never be displayed again. Catch them before they’re gone!
