Four graphic design seniors present theses on Friday Dec. 8

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Arts/Entertainment, Features | 0 comments

On Dec. 8, Kelsey Hanko, Emily Fitzpatrick, Alicia Yarlet, and myself will present our senior theses. Each of us have worked hard these past two semesters to put together some interesting pieces of design work. The showcase will be located in the Blackberry Farm Gallery and the William “Ed” Harmon Gallery in the Clayton Center for the Arts. There will be a reception to follow with all the essential “art gallery food and drink.” The gallery space will be open from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the artwork will be displayed until Dec. 15. Yes, each of us are design majors, but we use our different styles to bring you artwork of all kinds. Kelsey Hanko built a visual identity for a sustainable art shop called “The Sustainable Artist.” “The Sustainable Artist” is an art store that strives...

A Maryville Christmas

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Arts/Entertainment | 0 comments

On Dec. 5 at 7p.m., the MC Division of Fine Arts hosted a performance of “A Maryville Christmas.” This is the second year that this performance was put on by the entire Fine Arts Division. In previous years, each department in the division would put on their own separate performances, keeping the proceeds from those shows for their individual departments. But now, perhaps moved by the spirit of the holidays, the whole division works together to create one massive, festive celebration and splits the proceeds equally. The performance consisted of seven different Maryville College music ensembles including The MC Concert Choir, The MC Orchestra, The MC Community Chorus, The MC3Band, The Scottie Singers, The Highland Chorale and the MC Theatre Department. The participating groups, which include over 150 performers when combined, have been prepping for the event since early...

A match made in heaven: King Gizzard and Mild High Club

Posted by on Dec 6, 2017 in Arts/Entertainment | 0 comments

This new release is one of my most recent favorites to hit the shelves. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard has partnered with Mild High Club to create “Sketches with Brunswick East.” This could be considered one of King Gizzard’s tamer albums. This is King Gizzard’s fourth release this year, and eleventh studio album. As an up-and-coming indie band, the group has been riding the wave of popularity following the festival season this past summer. Even though this is the fourth album released in a year, this one has the most unique feel. The album opens with “Sketches of Brunswick East I,” a mellow opening that reflects an influence from Mild High Club and sets the overall tone. The structure flows like that of 1960s lounge music with influences such as bossa nova and modern electronica. It has more...

An Educational Bar Crawl: An ode to a dirty old bar

Posted by on Nov 22, 2017 in Arts/Entertainment | 0 comments

I was young, didn’t look like a local and didn’t know what I wanted. I’m still fairly new to the bar scene and still technically new to drinking unless you count the hunch punch created by a panel of confused college students. I handed the bartender my ID, and he examined it three times over because I still look like a child. “Rum?” I asked. “Sure,” he said. “You got anything to put in it?” “We only got coke,” he said as he pursed his lips. This was the first interaction I had on my self-titled, “Educational Bar Crawl.” I decided that my first stop would be Brackens, a local blues bar on the downtown strip of Maryville. Dr. Carl Gombert, professor of art at Maryville College who teaches a class I am in, was performing bass there with...
