September 24th - IRWIN: NSK State in Time, Opening Reception
Initiated by the Slovenian art collective IRWIN in 1992, NSK State in Time is a collective body of people, their actions, and experiences that has evolved through a series of collaborative art practices. The exhibition presents a selection of IRWIN's projects that examine relations between art and ideology, and address the issues of non-territorial identity and participation of NSK citizens in the activities of this conceptual state.
The exhibition opening was followed by an artist's talk by the IRWIN member Borut Vogelnik in the Folk Hall Auditorium at 7:00 PM.

September 12th - John Puglia Memorial Show, Closing Reception
The Emily Davis Gallery hosted an event that included a lecture, silent auction, and reception in honor of the John Puglia Memorial Show. Folk Hall Auditorium also held a lecture by Mary Street Alinder, former chief assistant of Ansel Adams and author of several books about the photographer. The lecture was held in conjunction with the "Fragile Waters" exhibition showcasing Adams' work displayed at the Massilon Museum through Sept. 14th.
Following the lecture, there was a silent auction of regional artists' work. Bidders could purchase works by well-known, local artists. Proceeds from the auction will go to the Puglia Scholarship, which enables UA students to expand their education by traveling to New York City.
Thank you to all who came out for this event and contributed to the silent auction! We hope to see you in the Myers School of Art and the Emily Davis Gallery soon.
