Keller Gallery Schedule for 2014

It's that time of year again!

I'm working on some new ideas for my three-year Keller Gallery plan.  Dates are set for next year, so I thought I'd share them with you now.  Exhibit openings happen on the first date the exhibit is on view from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.  They are always FREE, so mark your calendars now!

(PS -- If you have a great idea for an underwear exhibit title, leave me a comment!!)

Black Wings: American Dreams of Flight      
February 7 - April 27, 2014

The dreams of flight, freedom, and the view from above inspired by the Wright brothers were not segregated, but for almost 50 years after they took to the skies, the paths to the training and expertise necessary to become a pilot were.  This Smithsonian traveling exhibition explores significant figures, events, and themes associated with African Americans in aviation and aerospace history.

May 23 - August 17, 2014

Charles Schulz touched on many aspects of the natural world during the nearly 50 years he created the Peanuts comic strip (October 1950 to February 2000). During the 1950s and 1960s, Schulz’s characters explored aspects of the natural world with wonder and delight, and their cockamamie understanding of the world around them afforded many opportunities to introduce readers of the strip to fun facts about the natural world.

Underwear Exhibit (working title)      
September 5 - November 30, 2014

This new exhibit will examine the history of what we wear under our clothes – from underwear and petticoats to corsets and crinolines.  A fun and entertaining look at a forgotten part of fashion history!

The Legacy of Ferdinand Brader 
December 5, 2014 - March 15, 2015

View the magnificent drawings of itinerant artist Ferdinand A. Brader in the galleries of three museums. Visit the Canton Museum of Art, the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum and the Little Art Gallery in North Canton as they simultaneously celebrate the work of Brader.
