Brossman Gallery at York College of Pennsylvania is hosting “The Lettering Office,” a solo exhibition of works by faculty member Melanie Rodgers (MFAST ‘02.) In this exhibition, Rodgers explores how the graphic design form can be used to convey a personal narrative, and how this content is interpreted by the viewer. This selection of paintings, publications, and objects is also an investigation into the mechanics and aesthetics of the hand-lettered form.
“The Lettering Office” will be on view from August 24 through September 19, 2015. A reception will be held on September 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the Evelyn and Earle Wolf Hall lobby, preceded by Rodgers’ lecture, “Stop Learning New Things,” at 5:30 p.m. in DeMeester Recital Hall.

Ortega y Gasset Projects is hosting “The Gaps Between Us,” an exhibition of work by MFAST candidates Damon Arhos (2017), Sarah Clough Chambers (2017), Suzy Kopf (2016), and Kirk Daniel Palmer (2016). Working from traditions of painting, these artists explore themes related to contemporary American culture, including leisure, personal histories, queer identity, and the nature of perception. A unifying theme is the relationship to traditional painting approaches while simultaneously pushing the limits of the medium’s scale and material presence.
This exhibition is curated by Ortega y Gasset member Eric Hibit. An opening reception will be held on Friday, August 21 from 6-8pm. The exhibition will on view Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment through August 30.
