This is War! The Pain, Power, and Paradox of Images

October 5 to April 4, 2008

Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art and Print Study Center

Introduction

If "war is the father of all things," as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus lamented many centuries ago, then perhaps art is the mother. War continues to be a perennial subject in all of the arts, often symbolizing mortality and struggle and illustrating the triumphs and degradation of humanity. Our exhibition comes at a time when many museums are presenting war imagery in their galleries, from historical explorations to contemporary artists contending with ...

Ilgim Veryeri-Alaca: Recent Prints and Drawings

January 16 to March 25, 2007

Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art

Introduction

Most Turkish names have functional meanings. By an auspicious quirk of chance, occasionally by determinism, some names provide an apt characterization of the bearer's talents or personality. So it is with the artist llgim Veryeri-Alaca, whose given name signifies "mirage" and married name denotes "speckled" or "spectral." Her variegated pieces, embracing such norms and techniques as collage, lacework, engraving, ebru (marbled paper), and watercolor, wondrously integrate her Middle Eastern (or specifically Turkish) aesthetics with her mastery of Western craftsmanship ...

Leaded: The Materiality and Metamorphosis of Graphite

August 23 to September 30, 2007

Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art

Introduction

In a sense it is highly appropriate that a university museum organize an exhibition about graphite. After all, the pencil is one of the essential tools in foundation drawing classes. In fact the pencil is perhaps the most familiar of all tools to students taking their first steps at making art, as opposed to charcoal or chalk, or the brush loaded with oil or watercolor. To others, the pencil and the graphite it holds symbolize the essence of ...

September 28 to December 11, 2005

Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art and Print Study Center

Introduction

Pierre Daura (American, born Spain, 1896 - 1976) was a member of a radical generation of artists who shaped the development of European modernism from the 1910s to the 1930s. The richness of his art reflects the diverse experiences of his life - growing up in Catalonia, Spain, maturing as an artist in Paris, moving to the small French village of Saint Cirq-Lapopie, participating in the Spanish Civil War, and finally relocating to Rockbridge Baths, Virginia ...

One of America's most innovative writers, John Dos Passos (1896-1970) also completed more than four hundred paintings and drawings that chronicle his life's journeys.

(published together in 1938) provide a panoramic social history of the first three decades of the twentieth century.

American Prints from the 1920s and 1930s: Selections from the Permanent Collection

February 20 to March 25, 2001

Marsh Art Gallery, University of Richmond Museums

Introduction

American printmaking experienced a surge in popularity during the 1920s and 1930s, when many artists began looking to their own environments as subject matter. Urban and country life, realistic or idealized, appeared in the work of Social Realist and Regionalist artists. Their images were used as illustrations for novels, poetry, short stories and advertisements. Influential to the style and quality of printmaking at this time was the immigration of artists from Europe. Of the ...

Erling Sjovold: Recent Paintings

October 16 to December 11, 1999

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

Erling Sjovold's exhibition features his recent watercolors and oil paintings, works where the artist's desire to "slow down time" for reflection is the basis for images that even include the element of time as subject matter, both literally and figuratively. Like many artists that are described as "second sight artists," he creates images that require careful looking beyond the surface realism, works that do not reveal their full statements at first sight. His paintings are rich with layers of meaning that lead the viewer ...

October 16 to December 11, 1999

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

How do you read a painting? A sculpture? A print? Can they be studied the way that we study books? We live in a very visual culture, but we seldom study why a particular form, color, or image has an effect upon us. Visual art has a language, or series of languages, just like written texts. The languages can be more immediate than words, and they can tell us things about ourselves, the world around us, imaginary and supernatural worlds ...

Anthony Panzera: The Big Picture, Life-Size Scrolls and Drawings

January 28 to March 6, 1998

Marsh Art Gallery, University of Richmond Museums

Introduction

Anthony Panzera's remarkable series of monumental scrolls and drawings of the nude is impressive in its scale and startling in its immediacy. Large and beautiful, the life-size drawings present a contemporary perspective that carries forward a genre of drawing with a long and rich tradition.

The nude figure is an aesthetic theme of endless variation and can be traced to the very beginnings of art. The desire to depict the human form has been the source ...

Art of the Scholar-Poets: Traditional Chinese Painting and Calligraphy

April 01 to May 09, 1998

Marsh Art Gallery, University of Richmond Museums

Introduction

Chinese culture developed one of the world's most enduring artistic traditions, literati painting, based upon a unique idea about the purposes of art. The art of the scholar-poets is centered in calligraphy and poetry, which the literati learned at an early age as part of their basic education. Painting was done with the same tools as poetry and calligraphy - brush, ink, and paper - and it was an easy step to express poetic sensibilities in visual as ...

Interiors: Recent Paintings by Duane Keiser

February 26 to April 04, 1998

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

Duane Keiser's exhibition features his recent oil paintings dealing with interiors. Evoking the psychological intensity we often feel when we find ourselves alone inside silent architectural spaces, whether domestic or public, his paintings investigate this "intimacy of the room." Although devoid of people, his interiors are very much about the people who inhabit these seemingly ordinary spaces, about the haunting presence of humanity that remains, even as we catch tantalizing glimpses of the world outside. His paintings elicit our own experiences of such ...

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

Abstract art is stripped bare of other things in order to intensify its rhythms, spatial intervals, and color structure, a process of emphasis. - Robert Motherwell

The renowned Abstract Expressionist artist Robert Motherwell (1915-1991), best known as a painter, produced a remarkable body of works on paper. His drawings, prints, and collages show an intimate side of his visual sensibility and reveal the very personal "handwriting" of the artist as he responded to the subtleties of paper, both as a medium and a ...

Haiga: Takebe Sōchō and the Haiku-Painting Tradition

March 3 to April 16, 1995

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

There is an old saying in Japan that "the nail that sticks out gets banged down." This shows how the Japanese tend to perceive themselves in a social context, as opposed to Western individualist perceptions. Japanese society is seen as a community of human relationships; its performance depends critically upon the quality of these relationships. Therefore, Japanese are constantly trying to reach a harmonious balance between individual aspirations and social responsibilities.

There is great admiration in Japan for the balance which is evident ...

J.J. Lankes (1884-1960): Woodcuts of Rural America

1994

Marsh Art Gallery, University of Richmond Museums

Introduction

In 1917, while working at the Newton Arms Company factory in Buffalo, New York, Julius John (J. J.) Lankes created his first woodcut. His only implements were a graver, used to score rifle stocks, and a block of apple wood he had cut from a fallen tree. The experiment proved a turning point in the life of the thirty-one-year-old laborer, draftsman, and erstwhile art student. Rapidly mastering the difficult white on black woodcutting technique, he went on to produce some 1,300 designs ...

Daniel Serra-Badué: Dreamt Reality

1994

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

Daniel Serra-Badué is an artist of uncompromising vision who dwells upon memory as if it were tangible. "All that we see or seem - Is but a dream within a dream," wrote Edgar Allan Poe , and Serra-Badué seeks to place his audience within that dream. His evocative images compel us toward experiences that combine described reality with surreal impossibilities and dreamlike remembrances. Serra-Badué's world is a world of dreamt reality.

The lithographs in this exhibition, ranging in date from 1964 to 1992, demonstrate Serra-Badué's mastery of clarity of line, exactitude ...

Ukiyo-e: Japanese Prints of the Floating World

March 3 to April 17, 1994

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

This ukiyo-e exhibition reveals the tantalizing range of images in Japanese prints of the floating world. A seventeenth-century Japanese writer described that world as: "singing songs, drinking wine, and diverting ourselves just in floating, floating ... like a gourd with the river current." Reflecting a sense of the world as an ephemeral place of no lasting value, the floating world was an escape from the present into fantasy and pleasure. Hopefully, our exhibition will entice you to pursue your own escape into that floating ...

Introduction: Rilke and Rubenstein

The first time I met Ephraim Rubenstein, some eight years ago, and looked at his early paintings I immediately sensed a powerful poetic quality coming out of his paintbrush. This ambitious exhibition not only confirms my initial feeling, but surpasses anything I could have thought of at that time. It is rare these days to find a young artist inspired, not by pop culture or the mass media, but by a classic of literature. I find it interesting and refreshing to see ...

Ray Ciarrochi: Landscapes 1978-91

November 15 to December 15, 1991

Marsh Art Gallery, University of Richmond Museums

Introduction

While apparently showing us a particular place, Ray Ciarrochi's landscapes are more about the exquisite moment of being in that place. His landscapes are at once aesthetic and metaphysical, achieving a unity of viewing nature with the transcendent power of that experience. His light, color, and paint carry us into a reflective mood where nature is calm and triumphant and we stand in harmony with our environment.

This exhibition covers the artist's involvement with the landscape over a span of ...

February 14 to March 07, 1991

Marsh Art Gallery

Introduction

For both William Bennett, sculptor, and Elizabeth Schoyer, painter, art is a voyaging: invoking, acknowledging, celebrating the forces and mysteries of life's passages.

Bennett builds up, with stone, glass, copper, lights, and wood, exquisitely crafted monumental forms: The Voyage, The Boat over Ocean over Ocean, Stigmata, Bed of Dreams, Belly Scepter among them. The titles signal the theme of quest, while axial forms draw the viewing into ritual alignment. One come to Bed of Dreams as an altar; Stigmata, part anchor and part ...
