Eileen Cohen: "The Trophy Room"

November 3-26, 2014
Opening Reception on Thursday, November 6, 6-8pm, Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery (FAC 135)

Eileen Cohen explores the human/animal relationship through hand built ceramic sculptures. Her work comes out of a love of animals and is inspired by their forms.  Reduced to minimal forms, her tactile sculptures explore surface, proportion, and color with a sense of visual humor. Cohen writes, “I approach animals with compassion and empathy, and I am deeply saddened by their suffering. I am disturbed by the mistreatment of animals: how humans exploit animals as objects for our enjoyment, entertainment, and consumption”.

The Cripple of Inishmaan Directed by Mike Ricci

The Cripple of Inishmaan tells the comic tale of life on a small island off the coast of Ireland in 1934. Cripple Billy is a teenaged orphan who wants nothing more than to escape his dreary life. When a Hollywood director comes to their village seeking local actors for his upcoming film, Billy plots to get himself cast in it, but when he does, he comes to realize that he may have given up more than he’s gained. The recent Broadway production featured Daniel Radcliffe as Cripple Billy.
