Center for the Arts, Holtzman MFA Gallery. Friday, October 5- Saturday, October 27. Gallery Hours: Tuesday- Saturday, 11 a.m.- 4 p.m.

Master of Fine Arts candidate Dan Keplinger was born with Cerebral Palsy. He says of his work, “I include images of my wheelchair and other objects that help me through life because they are a major part of my daily life. I morph these images of my body to create my own vocabulary. However, these pieces are about much more than my disability. Obstacles and challenges are a universal part of the human condition. We all face them in everyday life, although we have a choice as to how to deal with them. Many of us are likely to get discouraged during difficult times in our lives. In my work I hope to show everybody that they have the ability to persevere.”

Ron Klein creates sculpture with objects found in nature and from the urban environment, which he combines with constructed forms inspired by these two sources. For this installation, he will work with Towson University students to place thousands of sweet gum pods on the walls of the gallery, integrated with seed pods from the Amazon. The artists plans a gallery space that is celestial and liquid, appearing as if underwater and simultaneously the night sky.
