KALAMAZOO—The exhibit "Caroline Gore: mercurial silence" will be on display at Western Michigan University's Kerr Gallery in the Richmond Center for Visual Arts from Thursday, Jan. 9 through Friday, Feb. 14.

Caroline Gore

Caroline Gore says of her exhibition, "mercurial silence is the culmination of an investigation of how grief and loss manifest in society. Comparative meanings were sought through multidisciplinary research of historical jewelry, Roman myth, and materials and objects as they relate to commonalities across human experience."

Caroline Gore will speak about her work at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, in 2008 Richmond Center. The talk is free and open to the public.

Gallery hours

RCVA galleries are open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.
