Art shows to be held in Tipton and Slocumb Galleries
Your argument is faulty on numerous and agree gouts levels. But most fundamentally, there is no such mandate. Freedom of speech is not always equivalent to freedom of expression. Nudists are not allowed to freely express themselves. But they can talk about it all they want. The choice of the Redskins as an example is another example of poor insight. Again, no mandate compels them to consider a name change. But rather, it is their moralality coupled with a keen perception of public opinion that allows them the RIGHT to rename their club if they so choose. Arguing against political correctness based on some thin grounds of free speech is completely ineffective when using this exact point to stifle the free speech of those who wish to change the name of a football club to something more massively appealing and less offensive. It undermines your very point. We won't even get into the numerous errors in fact regarding your whole argument for a Christian foundation of this country. Let it suffice to say that there are a great many books which you should show more interest in and several right wing talk shows in which you should show less. Aaron Gong #comment 2
"Fibers: Fiber Art and Artists' Book," an exhibition curated by East Tennessee State University professor Patricia Mink, will be on display from through Dec. 13 at Tipton Gallery in downtown Johnson City. A reception will be this month's "First Friday" Dec. 7, from 6-8 p.m. at the gallery.
ETSU undergraduate and graduate students from Intro to Fibers, Intermediate Fibers, Advanced Fibers, 3-D Fiber Constructions and Book Arts, all classes taught by Mink, are represented in the exhibition.
The students include Joanna Barnett, Dayna Bruell, Heather Burke, Suzanne Clemons, Kyle Darnell, Rima Day, Emily Eversgerd, Michelle Gilley, Lyn Govette, Betsy Johnson, Li Ju, Derek Laurendeau, Kim Leland, Paige Tidwell and Brooke Wedding.
The work features a variety of techniques and artistic processes in fiber surface treatment and book arts.
Mink says the methods that are used include hand-dying, shibori, digital printing on fabric, quilting, weaving, hatmaking, embroidery, free-motion stitching, felting, crocheting, working with alternate materials, book arts and 3-D constructions.
At the reception on Friday, members of the ETSU Student Fiber and Textiles Association will have hand-dyed silk scarves available for sale.
The Fiber and Textile Association is a group whose focus is to expand knowledge in the fiber and textile medium and is open to the entire ETSU community, regardless of discipline.
Those interested in learning more about the organization or about the exhibition can contact Mink at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit her office on the fourth floor of Ball Hall.
Also taking place this week is the "Slocumb Holiday Art Show & Silent Auction."
The reception and announcing of auction results will be tonight from 5-7 p.m. at the gallery.
The show features art and craft work by faculty, students, local artists and alumni ranging from painting, prints, photographs, jewelry, fibers, ceramics and other works in various media.
Several non-art items will be auctioned off courtesy of local establishments and Friends of the Slocumb Galleries.
The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
