Come join us at this week’s Philosophy Club meeting on Thursday, December 13th from 12:15 to 1:45 in 421 Auerbach Hall as University Art major Edward Baxter shares his portfolio with us presented as a narrative of life, love, and cosmic equilibrium.

It is not always the case, and perhaps it is even rare, that artists are able to talk about or effectively explain their art to others. Some have even suggested paradoxically that the ability to do so would obviate the need for their creating the art in the first place. Ed Baxter is a counterexample of this claim. With Ed, talking about his art is as natural as doing it. It’s almost as if his narrative is part of the art he creates, bringing together paint, canvas, and other physical media in a metaphysical mélange, a dialog empowering us to dream and create with him.

The University of Hartford Philosophy Club has an informal, jovial atmosphere. It is a place where students, professors, and people from the community at large meet as peers. Sometimes presentations are given, followed by discussion. Other times, topics are hashed out by the whole group.

Presenters may be students, professors, or people from the community. Anyone can offer to present a topic. The mode of presentation may be as formal or informal as the presenter chooses.

Food and drink are served. Come and go as you wish. Bring friends. Suggest topics and activities. Take over the club! It belongs to you!
