The Martin Art Gallery at Muhlenberg College is pleased to present Michael Ananian’s On Looking; the exhibition will feature paintings and drawings in our main exhibition space. The work will be on view November 17 through December 11, 2015 with a public reception occurring Wednesday, October 7, from 4:30 – 6:00 pm. Additionally, the public is invited to a preview of the exhibition, including a talk featuring the artist, on Monday Nov 16, from 4:30 – 5:30pm.

Michael Ananian is a figurative, narrative painter. He explores how narrative frameworks and narrative ideas influence each other. Often the main concern in most contemporary narrative painting is how the form of the painting, that is, its narrative framework or structure, conveys the ideas of the story. Michael is equally interested in how the narrative ideas can express and create aesthetically exciting pictorial frameworks. His paintings give equal importance to the specific ideas expressed in narrative form and to the resultant form and visual structure itself.


‌The Martin Art Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of creative research by Muhlenberg students in the Baker Galleria Exhibition Space.  Works produced in Les Fletcher's Drawing from Nature class during the fall of 2015 will be on public display from November 23rd to December 8th.
