Event Image Exhibition | Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions | Feb. 11 - April 30, 2017
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to feature the ceramic work and drawings of nationally recognized Port Townsend, Washington artist Anne Hirondelle (née Harvey). “Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions” opens February 11 in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center and continues through April 30, 2017.

John Olbrantz, the Maribeth Collins Director says, “Throughout her long and prolific career, Hirondelle has pushed the boundaries of the ceramic medium, making functional vessels and abstract sculptures that are warmly alive and visually engaging. This exhibition explores a period of time during the past six to eight years where her work evolved into an intriguing exploration of abstract vessels where function gives way to sculptural possibilities.”

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

This play — Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy — is brutally quick, and is at once elemental and mercurial. It tells the story of a passionate couple, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, whose overwhelming will to power moves them to obliterate all obstacles, transgressing boundaries of fealty, family and fundamental human kindness. Come and experience the meteoric rise and tragic fall of one of theatre literature’s original power couples.
