About the Gallery
The Thagaste Gallery is named for the small North African town where St. Augustine was born and later established as a small community dedicated to prayer and good works. Community, in the Augustinian sense of the word, is a gathering of people of one mind and one heart intent upon God, who take joy in the development of friendship, intellectual exchange and the beauty of creation. In that spirit, the Thagaste Gallery is a place where artists from the Greater Merrimack Valley and its neighbors, as well as student and faculty artists, can share their talents, dreams and ideas of beauty.
Balik Kampung: A Village Return
A Mixed-Media Art Installation
Join us in exploring the life-long, cross-cultural, love affair between Andover resident and Merrimack College alumna, Emily Kearns, and her Malaysian host family, with whom she lived for one year as an American Field Service (AFS) foreign exchange student in 1977.
Their special relationship is brought to life through photos, film, collage, and storytelling. The installation celebrates the power of cross-cultural experience to impact our lives and generations to come. It invites and incites us to consider and remember the universality of our human experience.
