“The Longest Winter” comes to FAU

FAU’s University Galleries will present “The Longest Winter,” from Sept. 19 through Oct. 26, in Schmidt Center Gallery on the Boca Raton campus.

“The Longest Winter,” an exhibit selected by Miami-based art critic Gean Moreno, brings together artists from the Southeast and other parts of the U.S. whose works collectively explore and reveal how strange domesticity can be.

The exhibition will open Thursday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m., preceded by a gallery talk and dialogue at 6 p.m. by guest curator Moreno and W. Rod Faulds, director of FAU’s University Galleries.

“The Longest Winter” asks for a reexamination of our notions of the domestic, which is not the “normal” place it is often depicted.

The 2002/03 University Galleries exhibitions are made possible in part by a grant from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, Florida Arts Council; Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters; Student Government through student activities fees; and the University Gallery’s Friends.

The exhibition, reception, and lecture are free to the public. Exhibition hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 4 p.m., Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Tours for children or adult groups can be arranged at alternative hours.
