John Briggs: Casting For The Unknown
Jan 19 – Feb 22 all-day

Delve into the mysterious coastal landscapes of John Briggs on January 18 at 7:00 PM at the Melvin and Burks Art Galleries.

This spring, we invite you to delve into the mysterious coastal landscapes of John Briggs. Simultaneously realistic and uncanny, familiar and eerie, and inhabited by inexplicably nude fishermen casting nets in open water, the artist’s latest series invites viewers to question the simplicity of the paintings before their eyes, What exactly is going on here? How are the paintings connected? Is there a symbolic story underlying these works? Finding the deeper meaning if there is one is just a start for the intrigue. Event is Free.

The Piano Guys
Feb 18 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Hailing from Utah, The Piano Guys became an Internet sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos. They’ve made over 65 since joining forces in early 2011, including their hit video, an innovative 10-handed version of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.” But it’s the Guys’ highly original blend of classical music with pop that has really been the cause of an internet phenomenon that brought them to their major label self-titled debut album released on Sony Music Masterworks in 2012. This release was followed by their sophomore album, The Piano Guys Live! And recently released the Uncharted album all available now on Portrait, an imprint of Sony Music Masterworks.
