Baber Room Exhibitions


works of 
Aimee Brasseur

 January 8 - March 6, 2015

CMU alumna Aimee Brasseur returns to campus to present her unique photography 

in an exhibit  titled: Self-Reflected.


The show will consist primarily of the artist's composite photography work, including pieces centered around the themes of memory, time and emotion. Two-parts storytelling, one-part catharsis, each image is an allegorical representation of a page in her personal history. In addressing the challenges she has faced, Brasseur strikes a rich and universal chord as she transforms the negative into a positive by way of her stunning and unsettling imagery. The process of engagement, intuition and transformation is a personal credo for Aimee and she manages to work her artistic alchemy to her benefit as well as our own.




Corby Blem

March 16 - April 10,  2015

Exhibit opening & artist talk

Monday, March 16, 6-8pm, Park Library Auditorium

The artist's paintings feature characters looking forward to the Next Big Thing:  

The 21st Century.   But now that we are here, what have we got?

What is it we now hope for?​


Blem's work is nostalgic, 

a tad melancholy and mostly ironic 

when viewed through the lenses of 21st century reto-vintage frames.
