Gettysburg Times, Arts & Leisure


An exhibition featuring sculptures that suggest antique scientific devices will open Nov. 3 in the Schmucker Art Gallery at Gettysburg College.

Titled "Christy Georg: Instruments of Calibration and Ascertainment," the exhibition will continue through Dec. 3. Open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 1 to 4 p.m. weekends, the gallery is in Schmucker Hall on North Washington Street, just north of Water Street. The main entrance is on the building's west side, away from the street. Admission is free.

Georg, of Boston, Mass., will present a gallery talk at noon and attend an opening receptionat 6 p.m., both on Nov. 3. Both events are open to the public without charge.

"Georg's devices are not high-tech experiments, but instead are based upon low-tech tools and inventions- objects that might more appropriately be displayed in a museum today as past relics to be studied," said Schmucker Art Gallery Director Molly Hutton.

Georg developed the work to be displayed during her recent tenure at the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program in Roswell, N.M. She earned a master's at the Massachusetts College of Art, studied glassblowing at he Pacific Northwest College of Art, earned a bechelor's at the Kansas City Art Institute, has received numerous grants and fellowships and has shown her uniques works throughout the country.
