Christina Seely - The Hour of Land

Assistant Professor of Studio Art Christina Seely has work showcased in an exhibition of photographs in correlation with those curated into Terry Tempest Williams' new book The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America's National Parks that is up at EUQINOM projects in San Francisco.

"Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, this book is a literary celebration honoring the centennial of the National Park Service. This is a meditation and a manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America and includes a collection of photographs evoking an emotional landscape in parallel with Tempest William's writings about each national park." (from Euqinom projects Gallery)

A reception that includes a reading by Terry and a panel discussion with Christina and other artists from the book will take place on June 8 from 6-8pm.

Art Contest Winners Receive Awards From Class of 1961

 Originally published in Dartmouth Now, May 24, 2016 by Charlotte E. Albright

Sheltered by a grove of trees in College Park near Bartlett Tower, immortalized in bronze, sits Robert Frost. Over the past few months, artists studying or working at Dartmouth have made pilgrimages to this quiet spot, creating their own artwork based on the statue, which was donated in 1996 by the Class of 1961. Nine Dartmouth artists recently won awards in an art contest marking the 20th anniversary of the $50,000 gift.

The alumnus who came up with the idea for the contest, Victor Rich ’61, made the award presentations on May 19 in the lobby of the Black Family Visual Arts Center, where the winning work was displayed. Entries were invited from four media: sculpture, painting, photography, and drawing.

Esmé Thompson - Recent Paintings
March 1 - March 26, 2016
Opening Reception: 5-8pm on Thursday, March 3, 2016

In Esmé Thompson’s paintings and multipanel wall reliefs the use of color and pattern create a dynamic and engaging viewing experience.  Colorful and bold, the paintings attest to a lifelong interest in decorative designs as diverse as those found in Islamic textiles and ceramic tiles to those of medieval paintings and illuminated manuscripts.  The Bowery Gallery announces the opening of an exhibition of Thompson’s new paintings. The exhibition will run from March 1 – March 26, 2016.  There will be an opening reception on Thursday, March 3 from 5:00-8:00 pm. 

Student Gallery Exhibition - Cycles

In this show, artists are encouraged to explore the cycles they have witnessed or experienced in their lives. These could include cycles of life and death, destruction and rebirth, or journeys and destinations. Of particular interest are the areas where the cycle's elements intersect or break- periods of transition.

The show will run from October 1 - 29, 2015 in the Student Gallery at the VAC.
