Krotzer Paintings Installed at VCSU Art Gallery

James Krotzer's paintings are now installed in the VCSU Art Gallery. James is an outsider artist who taught himself how to paint by working with his father in building furniture. He started painting on canvas ten years ago. Each painting is a short story of James and his dog Tubby. Mr. Krotzer says, "Tubby was a very special dog, she was my first boxer and my best friend." The exhibition tells of all of the fun times James and Tubby had together. Mr. Krotzer is also breeder of boxers.

We have left the paintings untitled and to allow you to read Mr. Krotzer's comments and title the work yourself. Enter the Title the Paintings contest and you could win one of three small prizes.

Contest roles and forms will be available on Wednesday. A reception with the artist is scheduled for 3:00 – 4:30 PM, Friday, February 26. Come up and spend time with the paintings that tell fun stories. The Exhibition runs through February 26.


Working Papers Project Meetings Set

Join your colleagues for the Working Papers Project each Wednesday at 12:00 noon in McFarland 426.

The purpose of these gatherings is to share past, current or future research or topic of study, innovations being tried in teaching at VCSU, and general topics of academic interest that you would like to discuss with others.

If you are in between research projects, come anyway and see what others are doing. This is an informal setting and is a chance to share what you are passionate about and receive some useful feedback.

If this scheduled time does not work for you, please contact Dan Clark. If there are many conflicts, an alternative time may be arrange.
