Gallery to Display Works by Local Printmaker

"Passages," an exhibit featuring work from local printmaker Adrian Rhodes, will be displayed through Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the Student Union Art Gallery. A free reception with the artist will be from 5:00 - 7:00 PM, Thursday, Sept. 25.

Artwork in the exhibit explores internal conflict as reflected in the tension between rigid structural forms and organic, intuitive mark making.

"I am interested in studio practice as a way to question-I am interested in the act of making," said Rhodes. "I don’t try to illustrate an idea, rather I let process guide the piece and find meaning in the method used to create it."

University to Host Mass CPR Training

UNC Charlotte will host a mass cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training exercise for students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM in the Student Activities Center (SAC). The training is designed to increase the number of people on campus who know how to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest. Each training session will last for 30 minutes.

This is the second year the University’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety has partnered with Mecklenburg EMS Agency (Medic) to promote a mass CPR training. Last fall, over 250 students, faculty and staff learned hands-only CPR at the event. EH&S hopes to increase that number to 350 or more. Medic personnel will teach participants proper hand placement and how to perform compressions on a CPR manikin. Participants will be able to ask questions and learn the importance of quick action during a cardiac arrest.
