 Thoughts on the Snowman by Dona Maria

What would Chris Cringle wear in Crete?
Does his dashboard have knobs
for cold and for heat?

What would Chris Cringle wear in Pompeii?
Would he take off his shirt
as he drives in his sleigh?

What would Chris Cringle wear when in Rome?
He would wear frescoes, cathedrals, and domes.

Review: Art House Exhibit "Timebomb" by Biff Bastarache

 Review: Art House Exhibit "Timebomb" by Biff Bastarache


posterIt was a somewhat surreal experience walking to the exhibit. The upper apartments on Saint Anselm campus are well known for a rowdy night life. As one walks towards apartment A-4, one notices the evidence of that reputation scattered about the ground. The pathways on this Ash Wednesday evening were dark and quiet, and a different life was stirring. In one apartment, the Residential Living Community known as the Art House, carpets were being vacuumed, shelves tidied, and shirts tucked in. Among the row-upon-row of identical doors, the one marked A-4 opened onto something different. We were welcomed by Jared Butler, senior philosophy major and organizer of the Art House RLC, into the suite’s front room, which had been  transformed into a gallery. On the floor was a new red carpet with an oriental flair, and along the four walls, at head’s height, ran a series of pencil drawings on paper professionally mounted on red frames, with the room’s temporary status as gallery marked by a large deep red poster: “Time Bomb: Works on Paper by Biff Bastarache.”


The work shown here is by students studying under Prof. Marvin Sweet.

 Sadly, he passed away unexpectedly this summer. For anyone who is interested in knowing more about him, I am posting his website here:
