This Week @ Marywood

Art Gallery Events

Hetty Baiz: This Very Body, Mahady Gallery, Shields Center for Visual Arts, Now through December 1, 2018
The exhibition features a series of figure paintings executed in mixed media on large wooden panels, and a group of portraits created from woven jute on canvas. The works are powerful presences, as ambiguous and ephemeral as they are haunting and visceral. The figural subjects of the paintings are absorbed into the deep materiality of Baiz's process, appearing to be both emerging from and dissolving into the rich surfaces. Through these paintings, Baiz is exploring the nature of the body, gender and spirit, asking questions about identity, mortality and time, and examining the transience of being in the world. The works convey a deep existential vulnerability that invites and rewards close examination.

Gadabout Film Festival (December 5)

The Gadabout Film Festival 2018 is coming to Marywood University on Wednesday, Dec 5, from 6-8 p.m., Swartz Center for Spiritual Life, Conference Room B. This event is FREE and open to the public.

The Gadabout Film Festival is an internationally-touring short film program with a unique style and energy. A Gadabout screening is an experience accessible to everyone, from film aficionados to film novices, with a selection of high-quality, well-paced films diverse in genre, medium, and content. The program will include documentaries, animations, narratives, and just plain fun films. You’ll leave inspired and curious, having laughed, pondered, and possibly teared up. The first hour will be the screening of 14 short films. During the second hour, the co-producers, Eric Ayotte and Charlie Jones, will open the floor to the audience for Q&A and discussion about the festival, short films, and animation shorts.
