February’s First Friday includes artwork on exhibit of Millersville Art & Design Faculty members. The Art & Design studio offerings include ceramics, metals and jewelry, sculpture, painting, graphic and interactive design, photography, printmaking and drawing. Faculty from each of these areas and those that offer coursework in art education will present a wide range of media and approaches to making art. These personal investigations are a result of ongoing bodies of work that have been exhibited in greater depth nationally and internationally. There is no charge to browse the exhibit, which will remain on view throughout the month.

5 – 8 PM
Cherished Friends and Intimate Spaces – The Annual Demuth Invitational Exhibition: This year’s Invitational includes new works from over thirty-five contemporary artists from Lancaster and the surrounding region.

This Tuesday, a presentation at F&M on “Contested Space: Witness to Place”

F&M Professor of Art History Richard Kent will lecture at Franklin & Marshall College’s Phillips Museum of Art in the Rothman Gallery at 5 p.m. February 3rd on “The Engaged Eye: The Work of Robert Lowing and American Landscape Photography,” in which Kent will discuss the tradition of activist photography.

“A lot of photographers are responding to the question, ‘What is the landscape we’re living in? How is it affected by development or industrialization?'” Kent said. “They are exploring how best to represent and document that landscape.”

A very special opportunity! Come if you can.
