Wrapped Hands


Works by Maureen France

July 27 - August 26, 2016

Artist Statement
Boxers are mentally and physically tough, disciplined and tremendously fast.  They stand alone in the ring and they blame no one if they fail. I have tried to photograph what I have seen- the commitment of the athletes, the dedicated staff and the respect that everyone shows for each other.  – October 2014.

Sure Shelter

Works by Kelly Frigard

September 1 - October 24, 2016

Opening reception: September 21, 12:15-1:15p.m.

Artist Statement
Sure Shelter is a series of drawings of dogs and one cat, all of whom have been rescued from local animals shelters or picked up as strays. This exhibitions explores how animals help humans form bridges and seek relationships of connection. The series of drawings reveals the sensitive nature of animals and our human bonds to them. Sure Shelter seeks to question the positions of both the rescued and the rescuer as transformative roles which encourage empathy and compassion for both creatures and humans alike. All proceeds from this show will be donated to a local rescue non-profit organization for the protection and aid of animals.

Works by Susan Deaton

Closing reception- February 2, 12-1p.m.

Artist Statement
My drawings take a critical view of society and its relationship to the environment.  My underlying vision is to resolve the separation of human beings to the natural world.  My ultimate hope is to influence individuals’ perception so that over time policies and practices will emerge that protect the natural environment.

decades of the twentieth century, making significant contributions
to modern art and literature. Old Modern is a series of portrait
paintings documenting these women in their elderly years
since many lived long and productive lives. The exhibition is an
extension of UCC Associate Professor Kim Taylor’s research of the
women of the modernist period, examining their careers within the
framework of gender and aging. It coincides with Women’s History
