A reception Friday, April 19, at the Art Gallery of Windsor will celebrate the opening of Dispose, an exhibition of sculptures by UWindsor instructor Zeke Moores.
A 48-page catalogue will accompany the show, Moores’ first major solo exhibition in a public gallery.
Friday’s reception runs 7 to 10 p.m. and will feature live music, a cash bar, studio activities and a chance to meet Moores and other artists with exhibitions opening. Admission is $7, free for gallery members and children 12 years and under.

Students in a class taught by visual arts professors Rod Strickland and Zeke Moores are finding out. A course assignment for the students in Studio Practice and Ideas: Space involves the creation of an “ugly” lamp.
The exhibition of their works is currently on display in the LeBel Building’s SoVA Projects gallery.
The International Sculpture Center has conferred upon recent UWindsor grad Teresa Carlesimo (BFA 2011) its Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award for 2012.
The annual award recognizes young sculptors to encourage their continued commitment to the field. It also draws attention to the sculpture programs of the participating art schools.
“I was very flattered and very thankful,” says Carlesimo, who notes her interest in examining the idealism of twentieth century architecture and planning as well as related political, social and economic issues.
The public is invited to a couple of events on Thursday, September 15, celebrating the opening of Collaboration, the 2011 faculty exhibition in the School of Visual Arts.
Both events are set for the LeBel Building’s SoVA Projects Gallery. Participating artists will be on hand for a lunchtime discussion starting at noon and a reception will run from 5 to 7 p.m.
