St Francis De Sales’s PSALM Chapter Returns To MAC This February

                   Nora Sheets Card Front                             

St. Francis de Sales School’s PSALM (Proud Students Against Landmines and Cluster Bombs) chapter returns to Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) for another February exhibition in the Benedum Gallery. This collaboration happens each February, with St. Francis students turning Morgantown’s attention to human rights tragedies around the world. Led by Nora Sheets, the organization’s history includes 19 years of generating public awareness and moving towards the subsequent elimination of landmines and cluster bombs.

 

The Road To Ottawa is inspired by the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty, signed by 122 nations in Ottawa, Canada. Student artworks are dedicated to the countries, campaigns and members of civil society that created the legislation and the continued efforts to rid the world of atrocities associated with landmines. MAC invites all to witness this powerful and eye-opening exhibition.

 

The exhibition will be available for viewing by the public from February 2 to February 24, 2018 in MAC’s downstairs gallery. There will be a public opening reception on February 2 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, which will include the students who made the exhibition possible, along with Nora Sheets. MAC is located at 107 High Street, Morgantown, WV. Inquiries should be directed to info@monartscenter.com or 304-292-3325.

Bare Form 2017

Possible Bare Form Image 2MAC Bares It All For Nude Exhibition

Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) will celebrate the human body this November with the return of Bare Form to the Benedum Gallery. This exhibition features non-erotic pieces from an amalgam of artists and styles.  The exhibition is intended to capture the human spirit by showing it in its most exposed and vulnerable state, an art tradition as old as Western Civilization. As executive director, Rosalie Brooks says: “The beauty and lines of the human form has inspired artists from the dawn of history yet remains an inextricable part of the human experience.  Our intimate familiarity with the human body bears the challenge to the artist…..transforming that which is known into an expression of emotion.”

There will be a Public Opening Reception this Friday, November 3 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. MAC welcomes all students, local residents, and tourists alike to attend and share in the celebration of the artists’ work. The exhibition will be available for viewing during operating hours until December 2. MAC is located at 107 High Street, Morgantown, WV. Inquiries should be directed to info@monartscenter.com or 304-292-3325.
