Schedule of Events

The grand opening of the Roanoke Valley Reef was on January 25, 2013!  Paul Selgrove gave an excellent presentation on the status of the ocean in Olin Theatre at 6pm, followed by an opening reception from 7-9. Craig Voligny had an exhibition showcased in Smoyer Gallery. The Reef exhibit remained in Olin Gallery through March 4.  Paul Snelgrove is a Professor at the Ocean Sciences Centre and Department of Biology and Canada Research Chair in Boreal and Cold Ocean Systems at Memorial University in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. He chairs the Synthesis Group of the Census of Marine Life. Craig Voligny's exhibition Phenomenal Indicators will show work from his 2010-2011 Fulbright Program exhibition Meridians and Parallels: Painted Abstractions of the Kenting Reef which was held at the National Museum of Biology and Aquarium in Taiwan in 2011.

Regular meetings at the Monterey House at Roanoke College energized a large number of expert and novice crocheters, inspired some very creative and beautiful work, and created several new friendships.
