On Saturday, January 25th from 1:00 to 3:00 PM, enjoy the reception for January’s art show (which runs throughout the month of January). The Crowell Gallery presents “Bricolage”:  construction or creation from a diverse range of available things, something constructed or created from what is at hand. The word suggests collage, the medium of Jim Tober and Carole Hendrickson’s artwork.  The Crowell Gallery is pleased to show the work of two educators whose love of creative reconstruction has cohabited with a life of academia, and has come to the fore in their combined exhibit this January.
