‘Do You…You Feel Like I Do’ and ‘Hypostyle Low Tide’ at Tipton Gallery
The ETSU Department of Art & Design and Slocumb Galleries, in coordination with the Urban Redevelopment Alliance, present these two art exhibitions, each created by a single artist. The first is entitled “Do You…You, Feel Like I Do” by Carri Jobe, and the second is “Hypostyle Low Tide” by Brian R. Jobe. Carri Jobe’s work includes a series of paintings, while Brian Jobe’s exhibit focuses on photography. The works will be on display at the Tipton Gallery in downtown Johnson City from Sep. 2-23, with a reception for both exhibits being held on Sep. 2 from 6-8 p.m.
An Afternoon with Tim Easton and Porter Block
Tim Easton is a singer/songwriter and guitarist known for his folk-style music and personable original songs. He has released over 100 singles and is now beginning a world tour to celebrate the release of his new album “American Fork,” which will be available for purchase as of Sep. 2. Tim Easton, accompanied by special guest Porter Block (a pop band out of New York City), will stop by Johnson City for one day only to play at The Willow Tree Coffeehouse and Music Room on Sunday, Sep. 4 from 2-5 p.m. For more information on the musician or his tour dates, visit his website at www.timeaston.com.
Zorb Ball Soccer
This athletic and hilarious game will be set up for students to play in the Quad on Wednesday, Sep. 7, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. According to Buctainment Secretary Rachel Smith, Zorb Ball was chosen as an activity due to popular demand. “Every semester our members bring it up and want to do it, so we finally got the opportunity,” Smith said. “What makes Zorb Balls more fun than soccer is the fact that you get to be surrounded by a big plastic bubble that protects you from getting hurt, making you able to run into each other as much as you want.”
‘At Play in the Fields of Our Stuff’ at Slocumb Galleries
“At Play in the Fields of Our Stuff,” an exhibit by North Carolina artist Rob Laborary, is currently on display at ETSU’s Slocumb Galleries until Sep. 16. It features multimedia artwork — from paintings and sculptures to everything in between — which looks to experimentally explore visual narratives. A gallery talk and reception for the exhibit will take place at Slocumb Galleries on Thursday, Sep. 8 from 5-7 p.m.
Free S’mores Night
This event will take place Friday, Sep. 9, at 7:30 p.m. at Tri-Hall Field between Governors, Centennial and Davis Halls. Sponsored by Buctainment, Sigma Kappa and RHA, S’mores Night provides students with a relaxing environment to kick back and socialize outside of the classroom. All s’mores making supplies will be provided for free. There will, of course, be a fire pit as well as music, corn hole and Frisbee. “We’re expecting a large amount of people,” said Rachel Smith, Secretary of Buctainment. “Students don’t need to bring anything, unless they’d like to bring outdoor activities or blankets to sit on.”
