Renovations Continue in the Matthews-Fuller Library

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn addition to getting a fresh coat of paint over the holidays, the Matthews-Fuller Library (DHMC, 5th floor) has a couple of big projects left:

  • Starting Monday, January 21, DHMC Engineering staff will be working in the ceiling over the unbound journals section of the library to repair the HVAC system. This will take most of the week.
  • Also starting on Monday, January 21, new carpet installation will begin in front of the circulation and the reference desk.  The carpet crew will arrive around 9:00 AM, Monday morning to begin the removal of the old carpet.  They plan to spend the entire day in that space.  From there, they will begin to remove the old carpet and install the new carpet behind the circulation/reference desk. Once that area is completed, they will proceed to move throughout the library over the course of approximately two weeks, removing the old carpet, and installing the new carpet.

There will be a significant amount of shuffling around books, furniture, etc., during this time.  We apologize for the disruption this will cause and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, etc.

Thank you for your patience.

Flower MarketCut-Paper Drawings by C. A. Santa Maria on display until April 1, 2013

Artist Statement: 
C. A. Santa Maria
My papers come from around the globe:  made of mulberry bark, rice, silk.  It can be smooth, transparent, subtle, screeching.  Paper allows me to add and take away at the same time.  I have worked with paper long enough that I can sense where it “wants” to go.  Sometimes it falls into place in ways I would not have imagined and thereby changed the mood of the art.

After living in Togo from 1972-1975 I returned to Vermont for several months before leaving for Cuernavaca, Mexico where I remained for the next 20 years.

Mexican and African cultures thrive on personal connections.  Mexico’s artisans are among the most diverse in the world:  paper makers, potters, silversmiths, embroiders, mask makers, lacquer-workers, wood carvers.  The patterns, collections of goods and the ability to speak to and work directly with Mexican craftspeople led me on a journey Mexicans call a “life of many turns.”  The wide richness of colors in people, their clothing, plants, wildlife, market-place foods and spices endlessly filled my senses. There is a wonderful pandemonium of life in Mexico and West Africa that calls to me.  That cacophony of colors, sounds, smells still fills my senses and flows into my art.  Major influences have been Huichol yarn paintings:  the techniques the Huichol use to outline figures and how they compose apparent “chaotic” themes that come from visions and dreams.  This “art” for the Huichol is their prayer.  Evident in my work too are the intense colors of the Gullah people, their flowing skylines and endless seas.  The poetry of their language and daily lives is clear in the movement of their art.

I received my MA from Dartmouth but I learned how to be a human being in West Africa and Mexico.  These cultures allow differences that embrace life on a scale that nurtures the most “human” parts of our beings.
