Exhibition: Daniel Heyman: Artist in Residence

Sept. 24- Nov. 24 2013

On view in the Jaffe-Friede Gallery this fall Daniel Heyman presents 5 monumental print projects as well as sketches and studies that lead to their creation. In 3 of the projects Heyman explores non-traditional supports for prints, most notably wood veneer and plaster. The earliest of the works on display is the monumental anti-war etching on plywood, When Photographers are Blinded, Eagles’ Wings are Clipped, 2009-2010 stretching to almost 11’x12’ when fully displayed; the other four works are more recent and consist of four large-scale, seasonal self-portraits, entitled: Summer: Artist Sleeps 2010; Fall: Artist Eats Pho 2011; Winter: Artist Engages 2012; Spring: Artist Contemplates (Inheritance) 2012. Using unusual printmaking materials, Heyman has explored etching and woodcut on plaster in the monumental 75 plaster tile work Winter: Artist Engages as well as etching on wood veneer in Spring: Artist Contemplates (Inheritance). Preliminary sketches, notebooks and working drawings for “When Photographers are Blinded…” and the self-portraits will also be on view. An illustrated exhibition catalogue with essay by John Yau will be available.

Artist-in-Residence Daniel Heyman ’85 Bears Witness

“For me, a big part of how I see being an artist is trying to be a witness of my time. Not in a journalistic way, but in a poetic way that will speak to future generations about what happened when I was here,” says painter and printmaker Daniel Heyman ’85, Dartmouth’s fall term artist-in-residence.

Heyman, who just two days after his arrival on campus already had some new paintings lining the walls of his studio in the Black Family Visual Arts Center, will deliver a public lecture at 4:30 p.m. on September 24 in the Hood Museum of Art Auditorium. His talk will be followed by an opening reception in the Hopkins Center for the Art’s Jaffe-Friede Gallery, where his exhibition, “Attention,” will be on view through November 24.

Artist-in-Residence John Newman’s Sculptures Employ the ‘Beauty of Surprise’

“John Newman makes serious happy sculpture and happy serious sculpture—without ever losing track of either of those qualities,” wrote a Wall Street Journal reviewer last March of Newman’s solo show at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York City. The celebrated sculptor, whose often-playful pieces combine such disparate materials as glass, tree bark, and tulle, now brings his talents to Dartmouth as the winter term artist-in-residence.

Studio Art Professor Brenda Garand, who took a Queens College sculpture course taught by Newman in the 1980s, is delighted to have her former teacher on campus. “John’s complex work draws from many sources, which include his knowledge of art history, his travels, and his own voice as a contemporary sculptor,” she says. “His work embraces differences through the beauty of surprise; for instance, gourds and gold leaf might rest on a marble pillow. And John’s sharp mind will add to the intellectual life of our students. It is an honor to have him here at Dartmouth College.”

Exhibition: Ying Li: Artist-in-Residence

Apr. 3 - May 6

The Studio Art Exhibition Program at Dartmouth College presents "Paintings and Drawings," an exhibition of work by spring Artist-in-Residence Ying Li.

For two decades now, Ying Li’s paintings have impressed for their fevered, slashing brushstrokes and raw textures. It’s easy, though, to confuse the look of passion with genuine fervor. The qualities that truly elevate Li’s paintings derive from keen and original observations, and a grasp of the language of painting. In her second exhibition at Lohin Geduld, color and gesture – bold, yet surprisingly nuanced – impart a full-blooded presence to her exuberant scenes of nature.

Exhibition: Laylah Ali: Artist-in-Residence

Jan 10 - Mar. 4

The Studio Art Exhibition Program at Dartmouth College presents Drawings, an exhibition of work by winter Artist-in-Residence Laylah Ali.

In Drawings, critically acclaimed artist Laylah Ali (b. 1968, Buffalo, NY) presents meticulously rendered and ornately patterned black and white images of characters culled from an imaginary anthropology. As an extension of her distinctive gouache paintings, Ali's new works in ink and colored pencil engage traditions of identification and classification based on observable physical traits. Deceptively whimsical, Laylah Ali's paintings and drawings offer keenly suggestive analyses of power, oppression, and subjugation -- often in ways that implicate gender and racial identity. While the artist's earlier work (1999 to 2004) delved into the moral turpitude and physical violence of group dynamics and power-plays, Ali has recently shifted focus to the myriad ways in which identity becomes manifest -- through clothing, hairstyle, skin color, physical prowess or limitation.
