Malone University Announces Spring Galleries Now Open

January 24, 2014 | Release # 6824

Michael Weiss

College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences – Department of Art. Malone University announces the following spring galleries:

Fountain Gallery

The Fountain Gallery continues to feature Malone students in the Fourth Annual exhibit of R.S.V.P., a Writing and Visual Art Exchange through February 18. R.S.V.P. involves students, half of whom are visual artists with the other half being writers. Participants are randomly paired in artist/writer duos. Each writer is to respond to a visual artwork with a piece of poetry or prose. Each artist responds to a written work in a visual medium such as paint, fiber arts, or photography.

The Fountain Gallery is located on the Malone University campus in the Johnson Center for Worship and the Arts. The Johnson Center is located at 2600 Cleveland Ave NW in Canton, Ohio. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. through 6 p.m.

McFadden Gallery

The McFadden Gallery is featuring Whimsical Worlds of Wonder mixed media digital photographs by Canton-based artist, Michael Weiss, through February 4. Through a combination of drawings, photography, painting and digital artistry, Weiss' works create a world where words tumble off pages, children transform into angels and boats soar through the sky on journeys into the unknown.

Weiss writes of his work, "It is my job as an illustrator to compliment, not compete, with a story. This body of work is like a storybook. Each piece is like a page from a book, only the beginning of the story nor the ending isn't always clear. . . . My inspiration comes from book titles and quotes, as well as song lyrics and movie taglines."

Weiss' work has been published in Stark Arthology, Somerset Magazine, and Incite: Dreams Realized. He has permanent gallery space at Evolution Art on Fourth Street in Canton's Arts District. He has won numerous design and illustration awards as the Associate Graphics Editor at The Repository. Find more of his work at michaelweiss.carbonmade.com.
