The Good Wife, an exhibit of garments and accessories from the Brenau Historic Clothing Collection, explores the changing persona of “the wife” throughout the years through a series of vignettes. Lori Gann-Smith will briefly discuss the many roles of women represented in the exhibition.

Brenau Family Ties showcases artwork from the Brenau Student Purchase Awards in the Brenau University Permanent Art Collection, which range from mixed-media and paintings to photographs and etchings. 

Brenau Family Ties closes July 7, but The Good Wife is open through September 1.
