"They Wait", by Kay Malouff

The 2014 Adams State University Autumn@Adams Week will feature Dr. Carol Guerrero-Murphy, poet; and Kay Malouff, Celadon Studio stained glass artist, discussing their creative process at 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 9, in McDaniel Hall room 101. The discussion is free and open to the public. Free refreshments will be served.

Malouff came as a student to Adams State in 1969 and Alamosa has been her home since that time. "I have worked as a professional artist for forty years. Although I do work in several mediums, stained glass remains my preferred choice. I have always been fascinated by the brilliance created when light travels through pure color, as in glass." Her work has been installed in three National Parks during Artist-in-Residences and in many churches, businesses and homes throughout the United States. She is currently working on a commissioned piece to be shipped to Florida.

Guerrero-Murphy will talk about the place of art and beauty along with her service/activist orientation. She will read poetry from recent manuscripts: After Lives and Birth, Death, and Other Pastures, and maybe a thing or two from "Table Walking at Nighthawk" (Ghost Road Press 2007).

Autumn@Adams Week is September 8 through September 13. Events compliment the 2014 theme, Great Expression/Gran Expresión, including dance and music creative processes; a Last Lecture by President David Svaldi; an Autumn Color 5K; the second annual HPPE Open House; a presentation on the language of the SLV; and the annual cook-off.
