Jaffe-Friede Gallery

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.

Award-Winning Alumni Exhibit Their Artwork at the Hop

On a hot day in Hanover, student employee Jessica Venturino ’15 keeps watch in the air-conditioned Jaffe-Friede Gallery in the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

Each week, she works a five-hour shift, monitoring the gallery, where the work of last year’s Perspectives On Design (POD) Award winners is on exhibit. Not surprisingly, she has become quite familiar with the artwork of the four recent Dartmouth graduates—Bogyi Banovich ’11, Do-Hee Kim ’12, Stuart Lantry ’12, and Emily Shaw ’12.

“I really like this one,” she says, pointing to a work by Shaw—an apparent moose antler in the shape of a swing, which hangs prominently from the ceiling. “It’s just such a cool idea. But they’re all pretty impressive.”

Visitors can get a look at the works through September 1.

The annual POD Award was established by David and Judith Collins, the parents of Paul Collins ’90. The award recognizes exceptional work by graduating studio art majors. The winners receive funding to pursue their art for a year, which culminates in the Jaffe-Friede exhibition at Dartmouth the following summer.
