Coming Soon: A visit from local artists and editor Gavin Edwards of The Beautiful Book of Exquisite Corpses

Gavin Edwards, editor of The Beautiful Book of Exquisite Corpses will be visiting Ross Gallery on Central Campus on Wednesday October 31, 2018 from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Accompanying Edwards will be local artists and book contributors Dustin Harbin and Holly Keogh. Be sure to stop by as the first 200 visitors will receive a FREE copy of the book!

The game of Exquisite Corpse is simple: two or more people create an unpredictable artwork by folding the paper to hide each contribution, leaving only small connective lines for clues. The unfolded page reveals a finished collaboration—sometimes wacky, sometimes twisted, and always unique. With this book, you can create your own Exquisite Corpses, with friends or on your own, because the pages are already packed with potential collaborators.– Penguin Random House

Don Peeler’s Magnified View

Image

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you ever wondered how a bumblebee feels while going about the business of collecting nectar? You need wonder no longer, as Don Peeler has brought to us the view of our beloved pollinators. These oil on canvas paintings make us look at the iris and hibiscus in a new way. It is common enough to see floral photographs and paintings, but Don invites us inside the flower itself to see a very magnified view of the petals. Our busy bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds certainly have a lovely office to work in.

These are large paintings and their colors will draw you in making you want to pull up a chair and sit for awhile. To get the full experience come by the Pease Gallery Monday-Thursday 10am-2pm. These paintings will be on display until October 4th.

Don is also represented by the Shain Gallery
