□ Biennial Art Faculty Exhibition □

Creativity swirled through the Guilford College Art Gallery on February 3rd, as this year’s Art Faculty Exhibition had opened its doors. This year focused around the diversity ideas, materials and imagery as mediums ranged from paintings, sculpture, and collaborative ceramics to graphics, photography,  and a mixed-media sound installation. Students’ eyes lit up throughout the room as they were finally able to see some of their professors’ most current endeavors in art. As an art major, I felt especially inspired as I was able toRead more

“All You Knit is Love”

Knitting needles tirelessly click away to the beat of energetic bluegrass ensemble, Zinc Kings. A slew of knitters, old and young, knit and purl merrily to the upbeat twang of the fiddle.

Besides that, Photothon is an event that presents an opportunity uniqueRead more

Initially, I was told that the Painting I students had been assigned to appropriate a classical portrait.  This means changing the face of the subject in the portrait to be their own. Pretty cool, right? When I walked into the classroom though, there was already a team of photographers there. Apparently word got around that it was an exciting morning toRead more

Are You There Guilford? It’s Us, Hand Eye

△▽ First off, kudos to our new President Jane Fernandes. On August 26th an inauguration was held in her honor, as she was named Guilford’s 9th– and very first female president. She is also the first deaf woman to lead an American college or university. Following the ceremony, sticking to Guilford’s quaker roots set in simplicity and responsible stewardship, a club and talents fair engrossed the quad. As Jane rolled her sleeves up to plant a celebratory oak tree, I saw sculpture instructor, Mark Dixon‘sRead more
