ALTERED: Thesis Show 2014

There’s a certain feeling you get when you walk into a really great art show. I’m not one for crowds, but seeing a huge throng of people at an art gallery is an exception, especially when they’re all there to see work done by our friends and fellow classmates. The renovations done to Founders hall in 2012 were met with mixed emotions and opinions, but you can’t deny that the gallery space it allowed for upstairs is a definite step up onRead more

Theatrical and Visual: Mutually Beneficial Arts

“There is magic in the theatre, And the theatre is magic. And blessed are they who can share their gifts.” I have no idea where that originally came from, but I picked it up in high school. My theatre teacher, a fabulous, wonderful, hilarious woman from South Africa, would have us cross our arms, right over left, hold hands while standing in a circle, and repeat each line after her. Sometimes we’d emulate her wonderful accent and cut up aRead more

Adele Wayman Retirement Celebration

<> <><><> <><><><><> If you can remember a few months ago, I wove words together to make rhythm show. A poem was such a good way to display All the things my painting class learned that day.   Adele’s been at Guilford for four decades now, She’s impacted us all and I hope this says how. So as a tie in to that one, here which I’ve linked, A bittersweet wrap-up will do nicely, I think…   This past weekendRead more

First-Year Perspective on Guilford’s Art Requirement

Since Guilford College has been tweeting and sending out congratulations to all the incoming First-Years for fall 2014, I thought I might play up a bit of why the arts requirement is important to take and then share it with all these fresh, new faces via social media. The brick wall I hit was realizing this meant I would have to interview multiple current first-year students. Interviews are weird and awkward. I’ll be the first to admit it. So aRead more

Don’t Forget Layout! Behind the Scenes at The Guilfordian

They’re the ones you might forget about when you’re reading the newspaper, but they also happen to be one of the most important teams behind it’s production. Imagine if no one was there the make sure articles were uniform or pictures were the right size…The Guilfordian would be a hot mess, and it certainly wouldn’t be the award-winning college newspaper we’ve come to expect every Friday. Upon entering the main lobby of Founders, newly renovated in 2012 and updated toRead more

Two Cents from the Soap Box

You may be familiar with the popular statement, “The Earth without art is just ‘Eh’.” It’s one of my favorite sayings.     A few things have influenced my decision to bring this topic back around for discussion: One, it’s almost constantly swimming around in my head. Two, going to the open discussion last Thursday in the gallery got the gears grinding even more than usual. Three, the phase of the project I’ve started in my theatrical design class  relatesRead more

Adele Wayman’s Retrospective – A Deeper Look

“Thinking back about your career for 40 years is rewarding and intimidating at the same time.” That’s the first thing that Adele Wayman, professor and artist extraordinaire, said to me when we started talking about her current exhibition in the Guilford Library gallery. This showing of her works represents her time as our mentor. When I spoke with Adele, we both agreed that this article should appeal more to Guilford art students instead of the general masses – that’s beingRead more
