From the basement to the barn, your beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen. After the last of the hotdish is served, the coffee pot is emptied, and the Jello molds are put away, these steadfast, sturdy women head to their farms, peel off their good girdles, and get on with their daily chores. In between picking eggs, milking cows, and dusting knickknacks, they congregate with some of the other lovable folks who inhabit this rural community: Earl, who delivers the mail up and down Rural Route One; Fergus, the hired man; and Tillie, who chronicles the action for the Fish County Weekly. With plenty of crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs, YOU SMELL BARN celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. And, at the center of it all, are your favorite Church Basement Ladies. Whether you’ve seen several versions, or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all.

Chicago artist Caroline Kent is known for dynamic acrylic compositions that reveal an intuitive mark-making process. The Kármán Line, named after engineer and physicist Theodore von Kármán, commonly represents the boundary between Earth's atmosphere and outer space. This reference to the crossing of territories relates specifically to the artist’s wall-sized paintings that, due to their scale as well as their scumbled, black backgrounds and their installation within narrow, niche-like walls, creates an alternate viewing space that invites physical, spatial and emotional interaction. Kent posits abstract painting as a site that can be enacted upon, and this exhibition explores a diverse art practice engaging that site through text, the body and performance. Kent is St. Catherine University's 2018 Amy Marie Sears Visiting Artist. Related Events - Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8, 4-6 pm // Visiting Artist Lecture: Monday, October 15, 7 pm Gallery Hours: M-F 8-8; S-S 12-6

Melanie Pankau’s pristine, geometric abstractions reflect the role of meditation in her painting practice. Her small, acrylic on panel paintings invite intimate viewing and reveal the artist’s methodical hand. About her work, the artist writes: “I am interested in visualizing a contemplative consciousness and producing work that is laborious – embodying a deep, latent or durational sense of time.” In addition to her paintings, the artist will exhibit compositional drawings, color studies, palette records and other relics of the studio, giving viewers insight to her creative process. Related Events - Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8, 4-6 p.m. Gallery Hours: M-F 8-8; S-S 12-6

Two accomplished artists are featured at Textile Center this fall, with exhibitions contrasting divergent approaches to artistic practice. Similarly, both bring their ideas to fruition through the history, processes, and materials of textiles. Portland-based Lee Isbara’s approach addresses the development of a visual vocabulary over time. With this, she communicates concept and emotion in mirroring her own life as a displaced person conversant in the language and culture of two countries, but not considered a full-fledged member of either one. San Jose-based Taylor’s approach references the realm of math as an intellectual point of departure, using an intuitive sense of geometry. Her process focuses on developing complex woven structures on the loom that create imagery through controlled and layered intersecting surfaces of color and texture. Reception for the Artists: Thursday, September 6, 5:30 – 7pm. Susie Taylor remarks at 6:30 pm. Displaced lecture, ACC Salon Series: On the Road, by Jiseon Lee Isbara immediately following the reception at 7 pm in Textile Center Auditorium. Free and open to the public! Exhibit Hours: Monday – Thursday, 10 am – 7 pm, Friday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm.

Our bodies are us. Race, sex and gender, sexuality, and culture make each human individual, particular, different. Beginning with our bodies, the Hedgerow Seminar aims to translate wounds into theological reflection and suffering into the compassionate practice of solidarity. The black body uncovers the suffering body at the heart of Christian belief; it connects the cross with the lynching tree. Reading and reflecting with womanist theologian Shawn Copeland, we will ask how we can become the raced, gendered, sexed, enculturated body of Christ in our world that Jesus was in his. $25.00 per session, $240 for the series
