An exhibition of recent artwork by alumnae Kerri Rosenstein (Psychology '98) and Torrey Stifel Kist (Art '00).   Since graduating from Gettysburg, Rosenstein and Stifel Kist both successfully completed graduate programs, continued to produce and exhibit artwork, and obtained positions as art educators.  In addition to similar professional paths, the two artists are each exploring how themes of nature, biology, and chance are achieved through abstract forms and meditative installations.

Noelle Tan: Photographs

October 22 - December 4, 2010

Gallery talk: October 22, 2010, noon

Opening reception: October 22, 2010, 5 to 7 pm

Noelle Tan's work challenges the customary expectations of photography and question what can be seen in a photograph.  The works do not use a full palette of grays to become a "photograph."  Rather, through the use of white space and black space, the subject matter and composition become difficult to discern.   Scatterings of trees, people, birds, or pieces of a building, a road, a wall appear like pencil drawings or charcoal sketches rather than traditional silver gelatin prints.  Tan's work is widely collected and in permanent collections such as the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, the Albright-Knox Gallery, the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and the Corcoran Museum.

The Sol LeWitt Project

 

October 22 - November 10, 2010

Under the direction of Studio Art Professor Jim Agard in the Department of Visual Arts, at Gettysburg College, advanced drawing students orchestrated the design of large-scale drawings, which were executed by introductory drawing students and inspired by the renowned Minimalist and Conceptualist artist, Sol LeWitt (1928-2007). LeWitt, a major artist who established the Minimalist and Conceptualist art movements in the 1960s and 1970s, argued that the most important aspect of a work of art was the idea behind it rather than its form. In Professor Agard's classes, Gettysburg College students learn about LeWitt and follow his ideas to create designs, with carefully articulated instructions, that result in large drawings of their own.
