Manny Span, one of the Raiders’ usual starters, was out of the lineup for Wednesday’s win over Mansfield. He was replaced by Dom Sleva, who recorded a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds in his first career start.
Michael Campbell, director of the Kauffman Gallery (left) and Sique Spence, director of the Nancy Hoffman Gallery, opened the exhibit to the general public last Wednesday. Spence walked the community through the exhibit, explaining the artist, background and significance of each piece.
Sique Spence explained "Baroque Biology Series #3" during her presentation on the exhibit. This painting, by Katerina Lanfranco, shows organic growth being quelled by fires of rebirth. In this way, it represents destruction as well as life.
Mark Calderon's "Nocturne" is one piece in a larger set called "Dominion." The piece is a study in balance, according to the exhibit's accompanying catalogue, and strives to draw attention to the relationship between the creatures and our use of the environment.
Joseph Raffael's "Moving Toward The Light VII" is a watercolor portrayal of a single moment in nature painted over the course of several months. The painting itself is a celebration of life, according to the exhibit's catalogue.
"Faith in a Seed" (top) and "Winter Leaves" are both drawings of graphite on paper by Bill Richards. Richards draws without including a horizon, and in these works he focuses on the natural bedding of a forest floor.
