Minds into Matter: How Creating Art Affects Artists
Monday-Friday, 8:00 A.M. - 7:00 P.M., The Gallery of the Common Experience (Lampasas 407)
Art is a way of externalizing the internal. Artists are compelled by something internal, whether it’s inspiration, emotion, obsession or habit. Often the process of creating a work helps an artist seek relief, find contentment or achieve new understanding. This exhibition will pair works with personal statements about how the creative processes affected the minds of the artists. It will include both multimedia and traditional media works by artists around the world. For More information contact Billi London-Gray at 512-245-2266 or firstname.lastname@example.org

At-Risk for Students: Helping a Friend in Distress
Have you ever had a friend that was struggling? Have you ever wanted to talk to a friend dealing with a problem, but weren’t sure how? Most college students say they would turn to their friends for support during times of stress, overwhelming anxiety or depression.
The Texas State Counseling Center has made a 30-minute, interactive, online course available to students to provide training on how to approach and discuss concerns with a peer who is in distress, and if necessary, refer them to campus support services. In the course, you will engage in simulated conversations with student avatars who are fully animated and emotionally responsive, making this a highly realistic role-play game experience. The course can be completed over multiple sittings, as it saves your progress along the way. Click the link below and use the enrollment key to take the training.

FINE LINE: Mental Health/Mental Illness by MICHAEL NYE
Hours Subject to Change - Click Here for more information
FINE LINE: MENTAL HEALTH/MENTAL ILLNESS pairs photography with audio recording in a documentary project that reveals the courage and the fragility of people living with disorder, confronts stereotypes, and draws attention to the tenuous threshold between stability and unbalance. Photographer Michael Nye spent four years photographing and recording stories, discovering how, in his words, “Mental illness touches the deepest parts of who we are; our identity, self worth, the inability to communicate, confusion and loss of control. It can happen for no apparent reason and at any time. Every person has a chance of becoming mentally ill.” In simple, eloquent detail, 45 black-and-white portraits and the voices of those portrayed speak of denial, fear, stigma and separation, pain, abuse, coping, healing, and humanity. Nye’s Fine Line exhibition is presented in conjunction with Texas State's 2013–2014 Common Experience theme, Minds Matter: Exp loring Mental Health and Illness, and is sponsored by the university’s Wittliff Collections and Common Experience Center, the CFAN Company, and the Central Texas Medical Center.
