    Alice Schille's Miniature Watercolors (1914-1935): Gems Brevity

    This exhibition celebrates the 150th anniversary of Schille’s birth through her miniature watercolors that were produced in a variety of locations from France and England to North Africa, Guatemala and Santa Fe, New Mexico. These tiny paintings range in style from Impressionism to Post Impressionism to Cubism. Schille’s journals, studies, and artifacts will also be on display. This exhibition is curated by Keny Galleries, and in conjunction with the Columbus Museum of Art and the Canton Museum of Art.

    Reception: Thursday, September 5, 5:00-7:00 pm

    Lake Erie: Life on the Edge

    The photographs in the exhibition take the viewer on the 900-mile perimeter journey around the lake. Although Lake Erie’s volume is just 1/46 of the other Great Lakes, its warm and shallow waters produce more life than all the other lakes combined. Through aerial images, one is able to engage the lake as a whole, examining antiquated industry as well as new energy resources. The ground-level shots display the natural habitats, the juxtaposition between industry and recreation, and the plethora of people and wildlife.

    Reception: Thursday, January 23, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
    (Please note: The gallery is closed February 22 - March 1 for mid-term break.)
