This collection of the work of Barbara Ellmann is presented as an open book, without words. The exhibition is meant to be "read" via visual or overall aesthetic language so any narratives will arise from viewer response to, and exchange with, the works. Her paintings are discreet works, but they are displayed in grids, in galleries and on her studio walls. The exhibition's emphasis on viewer subjectivity is indicative of Ellmann's merit as an aesthetic educator, and the profound influence her concerns and principles as painter and as instructor have had on one another. All events are free and open to the public. The Monroe-Brown Gallery is located at the Richmond Center for Visual Arts, Gwen Frostic School of Art, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Michigan.
