Good afternoon, friends. Welcome to the month of September on campus!
We certainly experienced a week of beautiful weather that seemed to invite an autumn-like spirit. The local coffee shops launched their pumpkin-spice items, the hammock park was full yesterday, and I even saw a few students in sweaters!
I have just a few short updates to share this week:

Laurin Notheisen Exhibit now Featured at the Harcum Art Gallery
Wilmington College's Harcum Art Gallery kicked off its 2023-24 season Thursday evening with an exhibit of paintings by Laurin Notheisen.
A Chicago native, Notheisen received her bachelor of fine arts degree in painting and a master of fine arts degree in lithography from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. She was hired in 1975 by Western Kentucky University, where she continues to teach basic design and printmaking.
Notheisen has presented her works in numerous juried competitions and has participated in solo, group and invitational exhibitions over her career. Her works are part of private, public and corporate collections.
The exhibit will run from August 31 through October 20. The gallery is located within the Boyd Cultural Arts Center adjacent to the theatre. Be sure to stop in!
