EmoryGives campaign goes well beyond $425K goal: The EmoryGives signs posted around campus proudly advertise the campaign’s great success, surpassing its $425,000 goal by more than $61,000. “I think the terrific results are a measure of the extraordinary enthusiasm at Emory that comes with a new president, a new vision and a new sense of moment,” says General Counsel Kent Alexander, who chaired this year’s campaign. This spring EmoryGives will shift its focus to providing volunteer opportunities for Emory community members. Photo by Jon Rou.


Sculptor Chris Drury will discuss his work in the Carlos Museum Reception Hall on Friday, Jan. 30 at 4 p.m. “Pine Circle, Cone Sphere,” the piece shown at right, is part of the exhibition “Tender Landscape,” which opens at Agnes Scott College, Jan. 29. Drury, a native of Scotland, is a “land artist” or someone who works with nature. Rocks, twigs, straw and even ram’s horns have found places in his work. While he produces sculpture for gallery exhibitions (such as “Pine Circle,” completed in 1984), much of Drury’s art is located outdoors. His basketworks, shelters and cairns have been created in forests, on hillsides and along rivers. One of his most visually stunning works was “Tree Vortex,” a 13-meter-high woven cone of sticks that surrounded a sycamore tree in Denmark in 1998. In 2003, Drury traveled to locales ranging from Iceland to Australia to North Carolina to display his pieces. Drury’s talk is co-sponsored by the Visual Arts Program and the Georgia State University sculpture department.
