“Two Men and a Truck”

H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art

Join us for the gallery exhibit “Two Men and a Truck” from Thursday, Feb. 4 through Friday, Feb. 26, in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art. This exhibition is open to Carthage students, faculty, and staff only. Tickets are required and must be obtained in advance.

Yes, you read that correctly — this gallery exhibition title refers to the affinity that artists/makers Justin Shaw and Marco Rosichelli share with the afore-mentioned moving company, Two Men and a Truck. With their history of packing, loading, and moving, they are no strangers to the conveyance of valuable objects, except now they will be moving their own hand-crafted sculptural wares. What’s in the truck is to be determined, but it will be lovingly delivered, well crafted, and very important — to the makers, anyway.

Virtual Artist Talk
Members of the Carthage community and the public are welcome to attend a Virtual Artist Talk with artists Justin Shaw and Marco Rosichelli from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18, on Zoom.

“Grounded”

H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art

Join us for “Grounded,” a gallery exhibit from Monday, March 8 through Friday, April 9, in the H. F. Johnson Gallery of Art. This exhibition is open to Carthage student, faculty, and staff only. Tickets are required and must be obtained in advance.

In “Grounded,” photographer Stephanie Burke presents a visual exploration of lost opportunities. Founded in Cahokia, Ill. in 1927, Parks College was a nexus of aviation development throughout the 20th century until the program moved across the Mississippi River to St. Louis in 1997. Ms. Burke’s images document the loss — and the unexpected growth — that resulted when the original campus was deserted and descended into ruin.


The gallery is open to Carthage students, faculty, and staff only. For more information, contact the Fine Arts Administrative Office at finearts@carthage.edu or 262-551-5859.
