Washington, D.C.-based artist Stephanie Williams will deliver the opening lecture in the latest Wriston Art Center Galleries exhibition at 6 p.m. Friday in the Wriston auditorium.

Williams explores themes of body topography, play, home and pose in her installation, "Homegrown," in the Kohler Gallery. Her work focuses on reconfiguring the familiar into alien territory.

The new exhibition on the Lawrence University campus runs through Nov. 27. A reception follows the lecture and both are free.

The Leech Gallery features works from the Wriston's permanent collection as well as copies of fashion plates from Europe and America in "Capturing Modernity: Art, Fashion, and Artifice." Curated by Elizabeth Carlson, associate professor of art history, the collection examines the correlation between turn-of-the-century fashion and emerging modernity.

Sculptor Alison Stehlik's installation "Where-House" in the Hoffmaster Gallery explores the relationship between the architectural space that is a home and the products and possessions that fill that space.

Art discussion opens UWFV series

Four area artists will kick off the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley's 2013-14 Scholars Series as part of a panel discussion and presentation titled, "A Journey: A Life in Painting," at 6:30 p.m. Monday in Perry Hall in the Communication Arts Center. Panel members and presenters include Sarah Boge, Kate Bradley, Lynn Ann Sauby and Lynn Zetzman. They will discuss the influence that Biganess Livingstone had on their own work.

A 50-year retrospective exhibit of Livingstone's work, "A Journey," will be on display in the Aylward Gallery, adjacent to Perry Hall, through Sept. 27. Prior to the panel discussion, the public is invited to a reception beginning at 5 p.m. in the Aylward Gallery.

Physicians to show musical talents

Also, Hillary Reynolds, an Appleton native who fronts a band in the Boston area, will perform as a guest artist.

PAC honored for hearing-loss efforts

The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center has been honored by a national hearing loss organization for its efforts to improve the experience for those dealing with hearing loss.

The PAC has been awarded a national Get in the Hearing Loop Award 2013. The honor was awarded by the Hearing Loss Association of America at the national HLAA annual convention earlier this summer.

.

The Fox Cities PAC invested in t-coil hearing loop technology. A t-coil hearing loop is a wire that encircles a room or space that is connected to a sound system and transmits sound electromagnetically. The signal is picked up by a t-coil upon flipping the t-switch in a hearing aid or cochlear implant, which in turn allows a person with a hearing impairment to easily adjust their hearing device and enjoy a performance without distortion.
