Pradip Malde, The Third Heaven, Photographs from Haiti 2006-2012
Pradip Malde, The Third Heaven: The series of photographs deals with the environment, population and development, water and food, health and education, and transparent and sustained government of Haiti. Malde visited campus for a public lecture at 3 p.m. on October 7th and met with students of art and design.
Melissa Wilkinson, ABMASTERS: This series of paintings relates to Wilkinson's interest in dichotomies: obscuring and revealing, attraction and repulsion, good and evil, the past and the present. She appropriates imagery from a variety of sources in order to develop a pastiche that fractures the conventional male gaze and positions art historical models as both subject and spectacle. Wilkinson chooses to dismantle epic narratives from the past to create a schizophrenic perspective. The images break from their original sources into fragments, creating a complex visual experience that both irritates and seduces.

October 25th, 2014
Kids ages 5-12 are invited to tour the current exhibitions, explore mini-museums by UCM students of Art Education, and create our own collages! Each student participating will leave with his or her own collage, created with the assistance of UCM art education students.
Enrollment is open on a first come, first served basis, with the class limited to 20. There is no charge for the event.
"Our Gallery Kids events have been hugely popular," said Christian Cutler, gallery director ."We created Gallery Kids as a way to reach out to the community in an effort to bring more community members into the UCM's Gallery of Art and Design, which is a wonderful space to experience regional, national and international visual art and design."
Cutler added that gallery exhibits change every three to four weeks. In addition to Gallery Kids, the galleries will be open for visitors. Currently on display is Melissa Wilkinson's painting series, ABMASTERS; Pradip Malde's photography from Haiti entitled THIRD HEAVEN; and PROCESS WORK! curated by Professor of Art, John Malta.
