    SCHEDULE

  • Joy Ike Saturday, September 13 | 7p.m.Roberts Chapel

    In her third full-length album, independent artist Joy Ike offers her most realized work yet. All or Nothing includes 10 songs about giving up everything you have in exchange for everything you need.

    Ikes music, voice and writing has drawn comparisons to female musicians such as Corinne Bailey Rae, Regina Spektor, Norah Jones and Fiona Apple. But her percussive piano-playing and soaring vocals give homage to her African upbringing.

    Leaving her career as a publicist in 2008, Ike has since played more than 600 shows and has had the opportunity to share the stage with many accomplished artists. Her songs have been featured on NPRs All Things Considered and Relevant Magazines The Drop. Her song, Everything You Have, was recently featured on NPRs World Cafe during a segment on emerging artists.

    All or Nothing is more or less the culmination of her hard years of work and a clear articulation of feelings, beliefs and convictions that were once inexpressible. It is a deep dive into the unknown - a definitive statement on life and how one chooses to spend it.

    Free admission.

    drummer David Throckmorton unleash vitality and rhythmic drive in their music and dare to venture past classical expectations.

    Cello Fury has performed on radio and television, in rock clubs, concert halls and music festivals such as SXSW, performing for audiences as large as 67,000 and touring throughout 25 states and abroad.

    PERFORMING ARTS SERIES

  • Guest Art Exhibition: Brian and Laura PlankMonday, September 8 through Friday, October 3Opening Reception: Monday, September 8 | 6 to 8 p.m.Benedum Fine Arts Gallery

    Brian and Laura Plank are married artists who create art side-by-side, yet they have very different approaches to the making of art images. This exhibit will give the Waynesburg University community an opportunity to see how two different viewpoints of art come together.

    Brian creates art that is for anyone to enjoy and that is accessible to all. He injects humor and whimsy into his pieces, while Lauras love for medieval manuscripts, flat textile pattern and bold outline portrays a different perspective. She uses hand-painted lino-cuts, as well as acrylic, ink and gold leaf to explore Biblical scripture and the world surrounding us.

    Free admission.
