The Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University will feature paintings by Makoto Fujimura and Bruce Herman beginning November 29, 2012. Fujimura and Herman, along with composer Christopher Theofanidis (Yale University) and theologian Dr. Jeremy Begbie (Duke University), have collaborated on this touring exhibition and concert, which responds to the generative poem Four Quartets by T. S. Eliot -- a masterpiece that is still able to transcend its era and social location, generating fresh response and inspiring artists of this generation. The artists and composer have each created new work in response to the imagery, emotion, and allusion in Four Quartets, and have collaborated with Dr. Begbie to initiate scholarly and theological discourse that underscores Eliot's relevance for this new generation. A gallery talk and reception for both artists will be held at the Martin Museum of Art on January 15 at 2pm. The artists will also participate in a panel discussion of Faith & the Arts at 4pm that afternoon in the Alexander Reading Room at Baylor University. That evening, there will be a Baylor School of Music concert in Jones Hall of a newly commissioned piano quintet by composer Theofanidis at 7:30pm.

The artists, exhibiting their work under the Fiber Revolution name, use fiber as their medium - dying it, painting it, cutting it, tearing it, stamping it, fusing it and embellishing it. A gallery talk and silkscreen demonstration by fiber artist Carolyn Lee Vehslage will be at 1-3pm on July 19 at the Martin Museum of Art. This event is free and the public is cordially invited.
