STACY SCIBELLI – Artist Talk, “Suit Yourself”
Wednesday, April 5th, 11:00 – 1:00 pm
Fine Arts Gallery
Blurring the boundaries between abstract art and wearable designs, Stacy Scibelli’s Work exemplifies the hybrid approach taken by many artists working in the 21st century. On Wednesday, April 5th from 11:00 – 1:00, Stacy will discuss her work in the gallery and the influences that have shaped her practice. Lunch is provided.
The afternoon section of ART 100 is cancelled tomorrow Wednesday, February 22nd. Please go to the weekly schedule page of this site to find your homework assignment– the Weekly Calendar.
We will begin class next week with a discussion of your completed calendars.
Feel free to e-mail me any questions and I look forward to seeing everyone next week.

HOLLAND, Mich. — At some point during my freshman year in college, I went to a church in town with a friend. When the service was over, I stood up and an elderly man who sat in the pew in front of me shook my hand. I’m not sure I’d even gotten his name before he fired off, “So I suppose you’re from one of those Oriental nations, right?”
I was more shocked than offended. He’d meant it, I’m sure, without malice; I’d certainly heard worse before. I launched into a two-minute spiel about Where I’m Really From, trying to explain what it was like to be born in Montana, raised in Malaysia and going to college in Michigan. By the time I was done his eyes were glazed over and I was fumbling for the door.
Every semester, I see the tweets and Facebook posts. My professor friends, they are annoyed. Their students do not know how to write emails, they say. What they really mean is that their students don’t know how to follow the conventions of email etiquette in the academy. I used to be exasperated by student emails too. Until I realized that there was a simple explanation for why they didn’t know how to write them — they’ve never actually been taught how.*
But now, clueless students have no excuse, because they can read this post. Profs, share it with your students. Students, share it with your friends. Or don’t, and be the one person in the class your prof enjoys receiving email from. Click her to read the full post.
Both Professor Ferranto and Professor Tschampel’s sections of ART 100 will be meeting in the Gateway Center room 225 THIS coming Wednesday, November 30 from 1:00 – 2:50.
