SMC Emeritus College “Pen & Brush” Opening Reception & Reading Announced:

Emeritus College has announced the Fall 2014 launch of “Pen & Brush,” a journal of original art and writing created by Emeritus College students in the writing class taught by Monona Wali and the art class taught by Catherine Tirr.

The exhibition will run Nov. 21-Dec. 3 at the SMC Photography Gallery, located on the second floor of Drescher Hall on the Santa Monica College main campus at 1900 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.

Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The gallery will be closed for Thanksgiving Nov. 27-30.

A free opening reception will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 21, and includes a special reading. For details, call (310) 434-4306.

The theme of this year’s issue is “The Incognito Self.” The stories and artwork in the journal “invite us into a wealth of incognito selves,” said Wali. “They invite us to share dreams, disappointments, discoveries, travels, childhood trauma, love, and loss. In each case, the writer and artist engage with the act of storytelling on a level of revelation, revealing the self that is both deeply personal and universal and ultimately allows us into the greater human experience.”

Copies of “Pen & Brush” will be available for purchase at the reception. The cost is $10 per copy.

Emeritus College is SMC’s widely praised program offering more than 120 free classes and special programs of interest to older adults. Dedicated to lifelong learning, Emeritus College serves more than 3,000 students annually.
