Gallery exhibit and lecture: Thomas Mann – "Mann's Mind"

1/10/2013 —

The Gallery at Penn State Lehigh Valley will present "Mann's Mind," a new exhibit featuring the sculptural objects of Thomas Mann, from Jan. 28-March 16, 2013. On Jan. 31, an artist lecture, "An Artist Re-Invents…Re-Imagines…Re-Creates to Survive," will be held from 12:15-1:30 p.m., and a reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

Mann’s style of jewelry object, known as Techno-Romantic, combines high-tech materials and romantic imagery. He currently exhibits his jewelry and sculpture in more than 200 galleries nationwide and internationally in Canada and Australia.

In addition to his exhibition, Mann will present a special lecture, "An Artist Re-Invents…Re-Imagines…Re-Creates to Survive." As a self-employed practicing art professional for over 42 years, Mann uses this show-and-tell session to recount his experiences from 9/11, to Hurricane Katrina, to surviving the economic crisis, and other bumps in the road. He will share some of his tricks on working every angle to keep his business and career successful and invigorated in the tumultuous American economy.

The exhibition, reception, and lecture are free and open to the public. The gallery is located on the third floor of the campus at 2809 Saucon Valley Road, Center Valley. For current gallery hours, visit www.lv.psu.edu/gallery online.
