Marty Kalb Retrospective
August 17 – October 8, 2017
Featuring paintings that span the 50-year career of the accomplished artist, a retired Ohio Wesleyan professor and Delaware resident. Kalb taught painting, drawing, and modern art history in OWU’s Department of Fine Arts from 1967 to 2007. His early work has been described as having “a strong representational figural element with an experimental abstract expressionist background.” His later work includes powerful pieces inspired by the Holocaust, combining his figurative and historical interests.
With These Hands

A juried exhibit of art quilts created by Quilt Surface Design Symposium artists.
With Radical Love and Fierce Resistance
February 20 – June 2, 2017
An exhibition by Minneapolis-based artist Sam Gould that rebrands the museum as a site for questioning and collaboration in response to the division surrounding the recent North American election. Individuals and groups are invited to participate by hanging questions on the walls of the museum, reserving museum space to hold a conversation, or sharing audio recordings with the artist to broadcast over a streaming FM radio platform. This is the first installation in the Inside/Outside exhibition series.
