Tiffin University's Diane Kidd Gallery is featuring John Emery's "Scraps and Fragments" as the opening art exhibition of the new 2009-2010 season. The public is invited to a free opening reception from 6-8 p.m. Thursday at the gallery, located inside the Hayes Center for the Arts on the TU campus. Emery is to speak about his watercolor/collage paintings beginning at 7:15 p.m.
"These places so far distant in miles and cultural experience have distinctly shaped Emery's vision and art," said Marsha Pippenger, Diane Kidd Gallery Director.
Diane Kidd earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Beaver College, where she studied under Benton Spruance and John Hathaway. Under the tutelage of John Cook of Toledo, Ohio, Diane was inspired to move from oils to watercolors for her artistic expression. A nationally known artist, Diane Kidd's watercolors are in numerous private and corporate collections.
