First of all let me apologize for not getting this up sooner. Life this week has been a frantic mess.
There was a great turnout at the opening Tuesday evening. Thank you. I hope you enjoyed the show as much as I did. Very well done! After helping hang some of the work last Saturday it was amazing to see everything in place. Professor Pauls work helped me gain a better appreciation for abstract sculpture.
Dr. Orel’s exhibition Vessels of the Past was also a resounding hit. It is hard to believe that sitting it the Truman Art Gallery, right here in Kirksville, Missouri you can view pottery which was created in 5,000 BCE! Thank you Dr. Orel and the Royal Ontario Museum for the incredible pieces they are remarkable. Don’t forget the opening reception for Vessels of the Past Tuesday Feb. 16 @ 6 pm.
During January – April Kirksville will also host the National Endowment for the Arts event “The Big Read.” The project encourages communities to come together through reading and discussions. Kirksville has chosen to read Tim O’Brien’s book about the Vietnam War entitled, The Things They Carried. There will be many events happening throughout the community relating to this event and I will try to keep you posted on all of them. If you would like to read the book you can contact Mona Davis @ 785-4383. I also believe they will be handing them out at different locations throughout the city, I will let you know where as soon as I hear something.

I will post some pictures of the opening as soon as I get them.
