*Make time to stop by the Eric Dean Gallery in the Fine Arts Center to see the 35 Retro: Doug Calisch exhibit. This retrospective exhibition celebrates the distinguished teaching and artistic career of Professor of Art Doug Calisch. Calisch has taught ceramics, sculpture, and photography at Wabash College for 35 years. The exhibit encompasses a broad range of his art, including significant ceramic, mixed media, wood, and painted woods constructions, along with his recent wall-relief constructions using found objects and photographs. His work embodies the delicate ballance between preserving an object's history and creating new ways of looking at and thinking about forms and images.
