Award-winning painter Frank Bruckmann and sculptor Gar Waterman will exhibit their most recent work at the Kehler Liddell Gallery: "Nudes and Nudibranchs," from February 7- March 10, 2013. Frank Bruckmann and Gar Waterman are both traditionalists who use direct observation of nature and carefully applied technique to craft their work. Bruckmann's brushstrokes caress oil paint with an expert and familiar hand into the eternally complex landscape of the female figure, while Waterman's sculpture bends the liquid sheen of polished stone into impressions of rhythm and grace from the marine environment.

“Remodeling Zilkha” (2012) is a site-specific, two-channel video installation (8:16 min.) by Janne Höltermann, the Luther Gregg Sullivan Visiting Artist in Wesleyan's Art and Art History Department, that shows the filmed gallery space within the same gallery space. The two videos of the installation extend, compress and mirror the room using the inherent architectural characteristics of the gallery (repetition, segmenting, mirroring) to reconfigure space.

The world-famous British a cappella group Orlando Consort performs a concert of music from Medieval Europe. Show begins at 7pm.
A senior thesis production by Emily Hunt '13, “The Kindness of Strangers” is a solo performance exploring the psychological journey of an actress struggling to find herself in the infamous character of Blanche Dubois (“A Streetcar Named Desire”). Konstantin Stanislavski's and Bertolt Brecht's philosophies and methodologies of theater, in particular, will be closely examined in relation to cognitive dissonance--how does one rationalize acting as a different person, a universal form of deception in the normal world, as "moral" on the stage? These performances are in partial fulfillment of Ms. Hunt's Honors Thesis in Theater.
Shows begin at 8pm.
Without inner peace, there is no real happiness at all. The more we control our mind, the more our inner peace increases and the happier we become. By training in meditation, we can learn how to free ourselves from mental discomfort, worry and negative states of mind. Understanding this, how can we now gain experience and begin or improve our meditations? In this series, we will learn about the steps to making progress in our meditation practice. Each week, we will focus on an aspect of improving concentration and will apply it to our meditation during that class. Each class includes guided meditation, practical advice from Buddha's teachings and time for questions. No experience necessary… Everyone welcome! Light refreshments provided.
