Welcome to the Inaugural Season in the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts at Emory & Henry College.

As we journey down NEW PATHS, we hope you will join us on what promises to be an exciting adventure. The first season of guest artists is both a nod to our history and a vision for our future. We open with the dynamic Broadway talent Liz Callaway for an evening of unforgettable cabaret. Homecoming will be celebrated in grand style with a showcase of our own talent in both theatres and the art gallery. By late fall we will give you a glimpse of world class piano competitions when we host the Van Cliburn Gold Medalist for 2013, Vadym Kholodenko. We kick off spring with the creative, original talent of PUSH Physical Theatre, showcase the dynamic choreography of Paul Taylor’s Taylor 2 and lift the roof off with the diverse musical styles of the Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass. 

In our new art gallery, we feature this fall two mixed media group shows including our Art faculty Biennial and the all female exhibition A Woman in Her Place. In spring, we invite you to see the unique pen and ink work of Ben Sack, photography of Colleen Fitzgerald, and the sculptures of George Lorio.

It is an exciting time for the arts at Emory & Henry College. As our neighbors, alumni and friends, please join us in carving NEW PATHS in Southwest Virginia.
