Ancient Greek Vessels
In ancient Greece, ceramic vessels were used to store food and drink, reward Olympic champions, mark graves in cemeteries, and decorate dining rooms. A curatorial project by archaeology major Sarah Eisen ’15, this exhibition considers the nature and function of vase in Greek and Cyprus. These works are on loan from Bryn Mawr and Wilson colleges.

Walter Schofield (1867-1914)
The White Frost
In 1975, Dickinson College acquired The White Frost, a major work by Philadelphia Impressinonsist Walter Schofield (1866–1944). The White Frost represents the scenery around Befordshire, England, and was among the largest and most ambitious paintings in the artist's career.

Goodyear Gallery 
Friday 3-5 p.m.
Saturday 2-5 p.m.
Baltimore artist Amy Boone-McCreesh exhibits site-specific constructions that combine 2- and 3-D mixed media with vibrant collections of paper, textiles, found objects, unconventional materials and digital processes. The work is celebratory and exuberant, expressing the human impulse to push spatial and imagistic boundaries.
