• Press Here: Atlanta Printmakers Process 2020

    The Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College partnered with the Atlanta Printmakers Studio to bring together 15 artists for an exhibition on view in Spring 2021. It is undeniable that 2020 was an unprecedented year, the effects of which we cannot yet understand.

This centuries-old persecution brought millions of people out into…

  • The Designs of Nature: Form, Matter, and the Making of Art in Early Modern Europe

    Bettie Allison Rand Lectures in Art History: Rebecca Zorach, Northwestern University The Designs of Nature: Form, Matter, and the Making of Art in Early Modern Europe This series of lectures explores the idea of the agency and creativity of a sometimes personified “Nature” in late medieval and early modern Europe. Often seeming to operate with surprising independence from the Christian God, Nature was understood as both a creator of artists and a powerful generator of images that served as inspiration to those same artists. The series of lectures traces a set of ideas that shaped the work of artists and art theorists, scientists and theologians in both northern and southern Europe, looking…

  • Imagining the Artifact: Harley Ngai Grieco

    Harley Ngai Grieco will give a Brown Bag Lunch presentation on Thursday, January 28, at 12:15 pm. Her talk is entitled “Imagining the Artifact: Collaging Blue and White Chinese Pottery.” As a style of porcelain decoration, Chinese blue and white is globally ubiquitous. How did this occur and what are the effects of its pervasive design? Through this inquiry, Harley Ngai Grieco will share her research into the dissemination of Chinese porcelain imagery and its many histories. She will then present on-going artistic projects, which combine her photo-sculptural practice with her current research at the Bard Graduate Center Library.
