The Caestecker Fine Arts Series:

An opening reception will follow in the gallery. Fauerso’s work playfully projects her take on nature, culture and gender by critically rearranging discourses of the art historical past.

  • Beth Winterfeldt and Nicole Hoiland will offer a collaborative presentation at 7 p.m. Nov. 1. in Demmer Recital Hall.
