Artist Chad Farnes takes a non-traditional approach to his art, using only duct and masking tape to create his images. This painstakingly slow process involves layering strip upon seemingly insignificant strip of tape, which produces stunning images of the national parks. His goal in Tape•ography is to explore the intersection between humanity and federal land preservation. He questions what exactly is preserved with the creation of a national park. Is it simply to protect an endangered species or a spectacular vista that otherwise could not be enjoyed? Or is the purpose of national parks to preserve the wild that exists in each of us that otherwise could not be explored?
Veteran artists Kristina Lenzi and Darryl Erdmann exhibit their works together in the exhibition Counter Points. Both are abstract artists, but each finds a different source of inspiration for his or her work. Lenzi is inspired by her Muppet muses Kermit the Frog and Yoda. In Lenzi’s imagination both Kermit and Yoda are influenced by the work of abstract artist and color theorist Wassily Kandinsky and also the mesmerizing beauty of Miss Piggy. The results are happy, colorful paintings.
In contrast, Darryl Erdmann’s work explores the deep passion he has for space, color, line, and their relationship to life. His paintings explore the meaning of openness, closure, and how people react subjectively to them. He creates an open space that helps remind viewers of peace, communication of who we are, and lend understanding to our existence. He believes his paintings also give definition to our everyday lives.
The artists will present a gallery talk about their work on Tuesday, October 13 at 7:00 p.m.

In her devastating 2006 documentary “Deliver Us From Evil” and last year’s controversial Hollywood expose “An Open Secret,” director Amy Berg brilliantly uncovered the face of sexual deviance in corridors of power. She does it again to deeply disturbing effect in “Prophet’s Prey,” a gripping, authoritative account of the myriad abuses of Warren Jeffs, the currently incarcerated leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Berg’s interviews with past members of the polygamy-practicing Mormon denomination make for damning testimony, but the lasting power of “Prey” is its grim insight into the mentality of the deceived, and its despairing recognition that spiritual and psychological bondage doesn’t end simply by putting a monster behind bars.

Dr. Mary Jo Hinsdale, Director of the McNair Scholars Program at Westminster College, will speak on October 8 in the Unitarian Church concerning mentoring “outsider” students (i.e. those low-income, first-generation, and/or ethnically underrepresented undergraduates who wish to pursue doctoral studies). These students come from groups long excluded from higher education, who have been marginalized and minoritized by society and academia. The ultimate goal of this U.S. Department of Education TRIO program is to diversity the professoriate. 77% of the graduates of the McNair Scholars Program have either attained advanced degrees or are in graduate programs. Eight alumni have already attained the PhD, and seven have earned professional doctorates. She will bring copies of her book Mutuality, Mystery, and Mentorship in Higher Education should anyone desire to purchase it after hearing her discussion.
Rare Books presents books, pamphlets, newspapers, and magazines that were banned, forbidden, censored, redacted, expurgated, published anonymously and otherwise attempted to be kept from public consumption.

On display are first editions of Galileo’s Dialogo (1632), Hobbes’ Leviathan (1651), Swift’s Travels (1726), Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884), Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye (1951) and others, too hot to handle hot off the press.
