Art Gallery at Western New England University to Feature Work of Kim Carlino

Posted August 31, 2014

The Western New England University Art Gallery will host “Possibility of Space,” an exhibit by artist and independent curator Kim Carlino, from September 7 through October 2. The gallery, located in St. Germain Campus Center, will host an opening reception Sunday, September 7 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Carlino will offer insight into her work during a gallery talk on Tuesday, September 9 at 7:00 p.m. General Art Gallery hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. All events are free and open to the public.


“My work begins with the physicality of the process of painting. The materiality of the watercolor and ink pooling onto the surface forming striations and islands of pigment resembling distant galaxies or topography of a fabricated landscape,” says Carlino. “Looking for shapes, gaps and forms that intrigue me or elicit the interaction of line, I begin to assert a dialectic between the organic form and an imposed, self-created geometric language of line. The process is part intuitive and part guided structure of an embodied visual language.”

Carlino received her BFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She also studied at the New School and Drawing Room in NYC. She is a recipient of the Gordon Scholarship for Fine Art, Vice Chancellor’s Purchase Award and a 2011 Art Grant from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Carlino was the winner of a solo competition at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston juried by Al Miner, assistant curator of Contemporary Art at the MFA Boston and was invited to curate the annual Dialogue with a Collection at the University Museum of Contemporary Art at Umass Amherst.

Golden Bears Lend Helping Hand to Springfield Rebuilding Together Program

Posted August 30, 2014

On Tuesday, the Western New England University football team took a break from preseason fall camp to tackle some off-the-field work, helping “Rebuilding Together” clean up Springfield with their Bowles and Pendleton Street projects.


The Springfield affiliate of Rebuilding Together performs critical home repairs to the homes and non-profit facilities of low-income families with children, the elderly, veterans and people with disabilities free of charge.

"There's a real commitment to the Greater Springfield community in the athletics department at Western New England University," said Coach Keith Emery, who enters his 10th season on the sidelines. "We've really taken it to heart within our program as well. The nonprofit groups around the Springfield area are fantastic. Rebuilding Together has made it easy for our guys to contribute to the revitalization of our community.”

For several years Emery's squad has been involved with the Rebuilding Together Springfield organization by assisting homeowners in renovating residences in the city. The Golden Bears participate in the annual National Rebuilding Day project each June by cleaning homes and doing landscaping as part of the Green-N-Fit Neighborhood Cluster Rebuild initiative.


Golden Bears Football is particularly known for community service nationally after receiving the prestigious National Association of Division III Athletic Administration Jostens Community Service Award at the San Diego NCAA Convention in January. Western New England University earned an Honorable Mention in the category of "On-Going Project," receiving a recognition plaque and a check for $1,000 to the University General Scholarship fund.
