Opening Artist Reception: Ellen Salk's 'Shaker Loops' And 8th Annual SDSU Art Council Scholarship

The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library invites you to join us on Friday, May 21 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. for the public unveiling of our Main Gallery exhibition "Shaker Loops" by local artist Ellen Salk.

Ellen explores repetition, pattern, and movement in her beautifully rendered drawings and paintings. Her exhibition, "recalls both a tendency towards simplicity and ecstatic movement within the Shaker sect and also references the composition of John Adams of the same name"- Ellen Salk.

In the Rotunda Gallery, the Athenaeum is proud to present for the eighth consecutive year, an exhibition of artwork by scholarship winners of the San Diego State University's Department of Art, Design, and Art History. Students from the upper division of the undergraduate or the graduate programs will be selected, based on scholarship applications, by the SDSU Art Council. Each of the four receives a monetary award and the opportunity to present their artwork in this exhibition.

A special musical performance featuring Bay Area artists Ellen Webb, dance; Scott Walton, bass; and Cecilia Engelhart, voice, will take place in the Main Gallery at 7 p.m.

Location: Athenaeum Music & Arts Library
