EVENTS/EXHIBITIONS

MECHANICAL HALL GALLERY

Ancestors' Bones #4, 2010–11. Mixed-media drawing including black walnut ink, watercolor, oil, wax, raw pigment, collage, and photo transfer, 20 x 26 1/4 in. Courtesy of Martha Jackson Jarvis Studio

Martha Jackson Jarvis: Ancestors' Bones

September 5-December 9, 2012

Martha Jackson Jarvis: Ancestors' Bones explores relationships and contingencies linking histories and spirits captured in a vintage photographic album and in the physical materiality of nature. Conceptualized as an environment of immersion that blurs boundaries between sequential and spatial narratives,her installation of drawings, digitally enhanced imagery and sculpture, literally and figuratively unearths resonant histories from the photographic record, dislodging the visual fixity of the socio-historic image, and creatively reimagining their stories within the natural world.

MINERALOGICAL MUSEUM

Gerd Dreher, Ruby Mouse, Zoisite, detail.

Stone Carvings by Gerd Dreher from the Herb and Monika Obodda Collection

Extended to July 20, 2012

With his great attention to the detail of the natural object, Master Carver Gerd Dreher brings life and beauty to his hardstone creations. Born in 1943, in the famous gem cutting center of Idar-Oberstein, Germany, he continues the family tradition that began with his grandfather, who produced objects for Faberge. Iguana, pictured here, illustrates Dreher’s mastery as he uncovers and incorporates into the work the multi-colored banding of the Brazilian agate.

New Art at UD

February 1 – July 20, 2012

Showcased in this exhibition are recent gifts that have significantly expanded the University’s holdings in contemporary art, including sculptures and works on paper by Frank Gerritz and Lisa Hoke, paintings by Floyd Coleman, Donald McLaughlin and Peter Williams; and drawings by Felrath Hines and Elmer Bischoff. The acquisitions by these and other artists on view reflect the generous gift from collector Donald Rothfeld of several works, as well as gifts from Dorothy Hines, Floyd Coleman and others. We are also indebted to friends and donors who made possible the acquisition of Peter Williams, Absolutely Hilarious.
