READ­ING » The Miller Gallery at Alvernia Univer­sity wel­comes artist Brent Brown. His ex­hi­bi­tion “Free Imag­i­na­tion” opens with an artist re­cep­tion from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 24. The ex­hi­bi­tion runs through Oct. 19.

Brown is a pro­lific artist us­ing found ma­te­ri­als, who re­cently won third place at the 2018 Gog­gle Works 12th An­nual Ju­ried Ex­hi­bi­tion.

He also had a ex­hibit along­side Sy­bil Roe Thomp­son at Philadel­phia’s Mag­i­cal Gar­dens in 2017 and a group show in the Co­hen Gallery at the Gog­gle Works in 2016.

Cur­rently, Brown is a stu­dio artist at the Gog­gle Works Cen­ter for the Arts. He is rep­re­sented by the Out­sider Folk Art Gallery.

Brown is liv­ing in a place for peo­ple with emo­tional dis­abil­i­ties and he is not able to use many of the ma­te­ri­als he would like to make his art. He is now work­ing with pa­per, card­board, glue and acrylic paint to make his won­der­ful pieces. He refers to his pieces as pup­pets be­cause he has de­vel­oped a way to give them mov­ing arms, legs and heads with the use of card­board pegs. He would love to find a way to get back to work­ing with clay.

Ex­hi­bi­tion hours are Mon­day through Satur­day, 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The Miller Gallery is lo­cated in Fran­cis Hall at Alvernia Univer­sity, 400 St. Bernar­dine St., Read­ing.
