Taylor Art Department faculty members Suzie Dittenber’s and Josh Welker’s art exhibition, PORTMANTEAUX, September 17 – October 13, will close on Tuesday, October 13. A closing reception will be held in the Metcalf Gallery at 6 p.m.

Dittenber’s paintings explore the way books and magazines interact with water and the elements, while Josh Welker’s pieces “are pages in themselves,” rich in color, pattern, and movement. Art writer Erik Wenzel writes of Dittenber’s and Welker’s work, “The visual and the linguistic seem at odds, but oddly, they also fit together. Not exactly a portmanteaux, but close.”

Please join us next Tuesday evening at 6:00 p.m., as we celebrate the art of these two Taylor Professors, and hear them talk about their work.
