APSU hosts 40th annual student exhibition

 

Austin Peay State UniversityThis 40th Annual Student Exhibition is on display now through April 13 at the Trahern Gallery Austin Peay State University.We offer a mere tease of the exhibit, a sampling of what our artists have to offer. Hopefully it will entice you visit.

This annual student exhibition is an inspiration and a source of pride to me. Viewing this show gives me that other kind of food that is as necessary as air to a prosperous nation.

Art is a technique of communication. The image is the most complete technique of all communication.~Claus Oldenburg

In Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, she says that to recover our own sense of creativity and well-being we need to make “artist’s dates” with ourselves.

Theatre Row arrives at APSU with ‘Paradise’

 

Paradise“Allah Akbar!” is the cry of Jihadists around the world. This motto of holy rollers shall soon be heard on Austin Peay’s Trahern stage. Glynn O’Malley’s Paradise will open in the Trahern Theater Wednesday November 14, exactly one year after the New York and former APSU resident artist’s death.

Paradise is the second part of O’Malley’s famous war trilogy and is set amidst the horrifying conflict between Israel and the Palestinian terrorists. The play follows the lives of two young girls, one Israeli and one Palestinian who in another place could have been friends. O’Malley follows their lives, their teenage crushes, their dreams as the cloud and horror of war looms over them and colors their world.

The show was first requested by The Cincinnati Playhouse as part of its educational outreach, but in the Post 9-11 world, the tour was cancelled and a threat was made to cease the production. However, the play eventually opened to a sold out opening night at the Kirk Theatre on New York’s Theatre Row in March 2005 for a limited run, and has since played to standing room only audiences through out the United States. «Read the rest of this article»
