Welcome to the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts at Emory & Henry College.
Inspire, Engage, and Enlighten. As we enter our second season at the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts at Emory & Henry College, we seek to provide our patrons with artists and performers who generate an atmosphere of creative interaction with their audiences. We welcome Jennifer Angus, an artist who creates beautiful floor-to-ceiling installations with exotic insects, to our gallery this fall. Internationally renowned performance artist, Tim Miller, will take our main stage in an intensely personal work entitled Rooted which explores genealogical research and LGBT identity following the landmark 2013 marriage equality federal law. Rounding out the fall season, we will hear the exquisite sounds of New York Polyphony, a Grammy-nominated male vocal ensemble who transports audiences with modern sensibilities back and forth in time from the Renaissance to the contemporary scene. Figurative painter Teresa Pharr will provide a similar update of traditional forms in her exhibition entitled Mirror, Mirror. We are thrilled to present the incredibly popular and engaging Canadian Brass in the new year, followed by a residency and several performances of the Pig Iron Theatre Company’s traveling “Gentlemen Volunteers,” a WWI melodrama which invites audiences to become participants in the production. Micah Bloom, George Lorio, and Joe Page will bring sculpture, installation photography, paper-making, ceramics, and mixed media installations to our gallery in the spring. These guest artists, along with our talented faculty performances and innovative, high-quality student productions will create a vibrant cultural scene with something for everyone to enjoy. Please join us as we continue to bring artists of the highest quality to Southwest Virginia!
