Staff Art Show to Open December 1

The second annual Art@Work exhibition, featuring the work of Mount Holyoke staff, is coming December 1 to the Kendade Hall. Shelley Richard, assistant to the vice president for finance and administration, got the idea for the event from other local colleges, including Smith, that host exhibitions of artwork created by staff. “So many of us create things outside of our so-called nine-to-five jobs,” Richard said. “There are many unseen talents on campus.” To shine a light on these staff members, Richard organized a committee to promote Mount Holyoke’s inaugural show last year, soliciting work from a wide range of departments across the campus.

The first show was so popular that Richard and her committee decided to do another. Many of last year’s exhibitors have submitted new work this year, along with 14 new entrants. So far there are 37 items to display, including photographs, woodwork, and calligraphy. “We try to encourage non-3-D art,” Richard said, adding that she is pleased to have received some poems, one of which is displayed as part of a decoupage over a painting.

Some of the artwork has a special Mount Holyoke connection. Carol Prior, senior administrative assistant in the safety and risk management department, has submitted a quilt she made in memory of Jennifer Landry ’93, daughter of Lorraine Gendron, benefit specialist in human resources, who passed away in 1994. “Every square tells something about Jennifer’s life,” Richard said.

The exhibition will be mounted in the Marion Craig Potter ’49 atrium in Kendade Hall, December 1–12. An opening reception will be held December 1 from 4 to 6 pm. Musical entertainment will be provided by several staff members, including Ivy Tillman, LITS technical support and repair consultant, who will sing accompanied by Cindy Morrell, senior administrative assistant in the physics and astronomy department. In addition, Gerry Marchand, S.E.M. technician, will play Celtic harp, and Andrea Ayvazian, dean of religious life and Protestant chaplain, will sing accompanied by Mark Gionfriddo, director of jazz ensembles.
