Eileen Cohen: "The Trophy Room"

November 3-December 19, 2014
Opening Reception on Thursday, November 6, 6-8pm, Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery (FAC 135)


Eileen Cohen explores the human/animal relationship through hand built ceramic sculptures. Her work comes out of a love of animals and is inspired by their forms.  Reduced to minimal forms, her tactile sculptures explore surface, proportion, and color with a sense of visual humor. Cohen writes, “I approach animals with compassion and empathy, and I am deeply saddened by their suffering. I am disturbed by the mistreatment of animals: how humans exploit animals as objects for our enjoyment, entertainment, and consumption”.

John Gregor: "The Eternal Lake" January 12-30, 2015

Doctor Faustus
Directed by Alexandra Gould

One of Western culture's most enduring myths recounts the tale of a doctor who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge and power.  Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe transformed the Faust legend into the English language's first epic tragedy, a vivid drama that abounds in psychological insights and poetic grandeur.
