Have you noticed that Kresge Library is a patron of the arts? One wall in the current journals reading area, near the back entrance to Burke, now features displays of original art by Dartmouth students, faculty, staff and other members of the community. Our plan is to showcase new exhibits every 3 to 4 months, to brighten our wall space and to refresh and delight our study-worn minds.
Through fall term, we have enjoyed the photographic artwork of senior Courtney Hammond, — evocative images that are a mix of landscapes, portraits and still-life scenes. You still have a few weeks to appreciate their rich colors, arresting detail and play of light and shadow, before this exhibit comes down. Next up is an exhibit by senior Caroline Moore, a black-and-white photographic portfolio with a literary theme, inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
Both Courtney and Caroline are long-time Kresge student assistants, and we of course take FULL credit for their remarkable accomplishments. (OK, maybe that one’s a little much. But we still claim bragging rights.)
Interested? Are you, or perhaps is someone you work or study with, a visual artist, looking for a place to show your work? Send us an email and we’d be happy to provide more information on our exhibits program. Your comments and suggestions are also welcome!
