Join us at Gallery Flux to view the new show, ‘Subtle Reality’ by Christaphora Robeers, along with sculptures, paintings, jewelry, and prints by local and regional artists! Starting at 5:30 in the Gallery Flux Annex (302 England St.), Robeers will be demonstrating and discussing the process of creating a monotype. In the main gallery, you will be able to view her full body of work along with other pieces by local artists. A monotype is essentially ONE of a kind: mono is a Latin word which means ONE and type means kind. Therefore, a monotype is one printed image which does not have any form of matrix. On the other hand, a monoprint has some form of basic matrix. The process of creating a monoprint or a monotype is the same, but when doing monotypes, the artist works on a clean and unetched plate; with monoprints, however, there is always a pattern or part of an image which is constantly repeated in each print. Artists often use etched plates or some kind of pattern such as lace, leaves, fabric or even rubber gaskets, to add texture. In this case, having a repeated pattern, we have a monoprint.

Reynolds Community College will host an “Around the World Through Books” discussion on Thursday, February 5, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Gallery of Georgiadis Hall on the Parham Road Campus, located at 1651 E. Parham Road in Richmond. This event is free and open to the public.
The book discussion will feature “Smile as They Bow” by Nu Nu Yi. In her first work translated into English, Yi gives a fascinating glimpse into the life of a gay, transvestite spirit medium caught up in a midlife crisis amid the currents of an annual summer Buddhist festival.
Reynolds Professor Jason Lira and guest speaker and Humphrey Fellow Yu Yu Aung of Myanmar will lead the discussion. Dr. Aung specializes in AIDS/HIV research and has worked to strengthen the leadership capacity of young people of Myanmar who are at a higher risk of HIV infection. The culture and folklore of Myanmar (Burma) will be the focus of the event.
The program is a free community event sponsored by Reynolds’s Multicultural Enrichment Council for the purpose of encouraging cultural diversity throughout the Reynolds campuses and communities. For more information about this event please contact Lisa Bishop (email@example.com) or visit www.reynolds.edu.
