3/20/2012 12:07:00 PM by PCA&D



If you’re a fan of out-of-the-box artwork, you must come to April First Friday. 


On April 6, you can see two exhibits of works by PCA&D students, while here at the college, meet photographer Osamu James Nakagawa during his artist talk and gallery reception.


The First Friday fun begins at 4 p.m. at PCA&D, as Nakagawa presents an artist talk about his work, which is part of a three-person exhibit of large-scale photography, “Landscapes of Conflict” in our Main Gallery.


From 5 – 9 p.m., Nakagawa will meet the public at the reception for “Landscapes.”


Each event is free and open to the public.

Meanwhile, PCA&D photography majors are hosting a one-night only exhibit entitled “Daydreams and Fevers” at the Demuth Museum.  This one-night event features a video and photography installation created by Kate Frese, Leah Kolakowski ‘13, Briana Major ‘13, Steve Purdham ‘13, and Rebekah Shultz ‘13.  The event is open from 5 – 8 p.m. and is located at 116 E. King Street, Lancaster.


The “Buzz Worthy” exhibit that opened at PCA&D on February First Friday is now on display at the North Museum.  These illustrations are interpretations of bug puns, and will be on display inside the Museum from 5 – 7 p.m. through May 13.   Check the North Museum website for admission information.  See below for a list of PCA&D students who contributed to this exhibit.


In addition, bug-themed banners (a detail of one banner is shown above) created to promote the bug-related exhibits at North Museum are also on display through May 13.  They were illustrated by Kelly Geiges ’12 and Drew Nowacoski ’12, and were designed by Nick Belcher ’12 (as part of his internship with the North Museum, where they now hang). 


“Buzz Worthy” was created to promote the “Wicked Bugs” and “Bugs…Outside the Box” exhibits which are on display at North Museum of Natural History & Science, Lancaster, through May 13, 2012.
