The Malone University College of Theology, Arts & Sciences - Department of Visual Arts presents a guest artist visit with a poetry reading and gallery talk by Danielle Vogel on Tuesday, March 15 in the Malone Art Gallery, located in the Johnson Center at 2600 Cleveland Ave N.W. in Canton, Ohio. Vogel also will be in the gallery from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., working on a memory project - guests are welcomed to watch her in action. Her work is on display in the Malone Art Gallery until March 24. The gallery is open weekdays 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Tracing the writer-artist’s thinking over the last decade, “Ceremonies for a Book” covers the breadth of Danielle Vogel's practice and highlights the hidden histories embedded within a finished manuscript. What does it take to write a book? What goes unrecorded? The works on display are not interested in answering these questions; instead, the artist aims to celebrate, slow, and bring into focus the complex, often solitary, gestures of reading and writing. Illustrating the art of archiving and the conductive power of language, the installation features works in ceramics, paper, photography, metal, natural debris, sound, textile, and wood. Various work by art and creative writing students will be displayed alongsideVogel’s.
