All Day Imbolc
Wiccan/Pagan holyday in the Northern Hemisphere, begins at sundown the evening before. Imbolc is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of spring, held about halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.  It was originally a pagan festival associated with the goddess Brigid, during which feasts were held, holy wells were visited, and Brigid was invoked to protect homes and livestock.  Although many of its customs died out in the 20th century, it is still observed as a religious holiday by Celtic Neopagans and Wiccans today. 
All Day Lughnasadh (Southern Hemisphere)
Wiccan/Pagan holyday in the Southern Hemisphere, begins sundown evening before. Lughnasadh is a Gaelic traditional festival marking the beginning of harvest season, held about halfway between the summer solstice and the fall equinox (making its placement dependent on whether you live in the northern or southern hemisphere).  The festival itself is named after the god Lugh, and involved great gatherings that included religious ceremonies, ritual athletic, feasting, matchmaking, and trade. Although many of its customs died out in the 20th century, it is still observed as a religious holiday by Celtic neopagans and Wiccans today.

11:00 AM - 7:00 PM Juxtapose: Art & Design Faculty
The theme of the exhibit is played out in the curation, that is, the juxtaposition of the work of one artist with another provokes a conversation between the pair. This will open up a different kind of dialogue with the viewer as well.  The notion of juxtaposition is one we all know well and use to make sense of what we encounter in our everyday lives. Artists of all kinds use this notion to create works that are both thought-provoking and evocative. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Suffolk community and the public to see the artwork of our Art and Design faculty which is as varied as the subjects they teach.

Opening reception Thursday, January 25, 5:30 – 7:30, Gallery talk 6 pm
