First Friday with the Arts at the Crisp Museum with Caroline Kahler

Oct 31, 2017

This week is first Friday, friends, and we know what that means: food, drinks, and new art. 

Caroline Kahler has spent 37 years making art. Her work has appeared in 15 publications, and she’s been chosen as a juror in multiple states. And, you get to see that work, right here … for free.

Compelled to Make, A Retrospective of Work opens at the Crisp Museum at the River Campus on Friday, November 3, with a reception starting at 4 p.m. and an artist talk at 6 p.m. Kahler says what you’ll see is in fact art reflecting life in a wide variety of work.

"So what we're seeing here in my work is a need for me to always be making art. It's something that I feel compelled to do and depending on my circumstance, it has  created a unique opportunity for me to make art in a new way."

 Transitions Spaces 17.3 also opens this weekend and also in the Crisp Museum. Hannah Sanders’ unique work displays an expression of complex femininity. And to see work by some up and coming artists, head over to the River Campus Art Gallery for the Foundation Expo to view the work of the Holland School of Visual & Performing Arts students.

Rounding out your weekend is Family Day at the Museum. This entry into the series will see participants making their own artistic book covers and learning about printmaking.

The year may quickly be coming to an end, but the entertainment at the River Campus is just getting started. For more, visit I hope to see you soon at the Box Office!
