Meet our new librarian: Amy Hezel

June 13, 2016

Amy is the ILS and E-Resource Librarian at Dayton Memorial Library. She fell in love with libraries working at an art museum library after college. She then embarked on her library degree as well as stints working for various libraries, including public, academic, and digital. These and other adventures in librarianship led her from Buffalo to Iowa City to Oakland and most recently to Denver, where she is happy to wake up to the sight of the Rockies each morning. She enjoys running in Denver’s lovely parks, biking to the local pubs, travelling to familiar and new cities, and cooking for family and friends.

New exhibit: recent artwork by James Dixon

June 8, 2016

Recent artwork by James Dixon – on display in the Hartman Gallery during June

Since “Smoke and Shadow” at Walker Fine Art in 2010, my corporate emphasis remains committed to aesthetically efficient forms of limited physical mass which allude to possess far significant visual space. Textured surfaces, improvised asymmetric orientations, and visceral affectations continue to be the foundations of my design concepts. With much respect towards my earlier bronze period, Life has pointed me in the direction toward equal admiration given to the element of “greater risk taking and diverse material usage”. Rest assured I have not abandoned the bronze metal genre but I must testify that during my recent(five year) journey of omitting previous precedents and turning towards equally rewarding repurposed textiles,wood,plastics and various viscous embellishments, has been a” good fit”. I am forever persuaded that the Arts continue to function as the “avant –garde” vehicle of expression for “free thinkers” in American Society.
