THE NAKED EYE Exhibition of Paintings by Paul Richmond

Faust Salon (map)

Paul has felt at odds with traditional notions of masculinity his entire life. What it means to be a man in 2018 is different than what he was taught growing up in the early 1980’s. Since painting is his way of understanding the world, this series of all-male portraits is an exploration of masculinity in a variety of manifestations - from the toxic to the fragile. The expressive application of pigment reduces the literalness of the depiction, engaging with an exploration of color, form, shape, and pattern as windows into the psyche. By deconstructing and rebuilding the figure, his goal is to invite understandings that reach beyond the immediate surface and reveal the complexity of each individual.

 Pride & Joy: Reading and Discussion with author Kathleen Archambeau

The Diversity Center (map)

Kathleen Archambeau is the award-winning author of Pride & Joy: LGBTQ Artists, Icons and Everyday Heroes, with stories of luminaries, from Tony Kushner to Emma Donoghue, from Bill T. Jones to Colm Toibin, with a Foreword by Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Dustin Lance Black (MILK). The book promises LGBTQ citizens of the world a bright and fulfilling future.

The Gay and Lesbian Review (Nov. - Dec. 2017) has said, "Kathleen Archambeau's study profiles thirty individuals who represent the full spectrum of the LGBT rainbow. Each subject comes across as a complex person and not just a checked box...This book would be especially appropriate for teenage readers in search of gay role models." The book has been nominated for a Lambda Literary Award and a Publishing Triangle Award.

Kathleen will be at the Diversity Center to do a short reading, show videos from her website, and conduct interactive mini-discussions on the topics that arise from the videos.
