Asian Art Association Wed @ Noon: Embracing Ryoan-ji

Andrew Svedlow, Professor of Art History and formerly Dean of the College of Performing and Visual Arts at the University of Northern Colorado, explores the history of the revered rock garden at the Ryoan-ji Temple located in Kyoto, Japan and the aesthetics which underlie this iconic stone garden. Unfolding the significant connections between aesthetic theories at the time of the creation of the garden and the resonation of those ideas provides some insight into a contemporary sensibility about nature, art, and the place of contemplation in the aesthetic experience. Participants will be encouraged to share their aesthetic and contemplative responses to the visual representation of the garden.

Mayer Center Symposium - Gold Circle

Portraiture was an important art form in the Spanish colony of New Spain (Mexico) and in the British colonies of North America. Today, details in portraits – such as clothing, jewelry, and decorative arts – often reveal clues to the lives of both artists and sitters. At the symposium, scholars from both fields of study will present tandem talks addressing the evolution of portraiture as well as the similarities and differences in the colonial experience of the two regions.

Preston Singletary on Contemporary Glass: "A yáx áwé daa yoo tuxaatánk: How I'm Thinking About It"

Preston Singletary's work with glass challenges the notion that indigenous artists are only best when traditional materials are used. He has helped advocate on the behalf of all indigenous peoples through his art, connecting ancient Native styles to current modern art movements. His artistic style continues to evolve and develop, keeping the work fresh and relevant while pushing the boundaries of the material. Hear him speak about his process, inspiration, and the new direction his work is taking.

 

Tickets are $5 for Douglas Society members, $10 for DAM members, $12 others, free for students with ID. Tickets available at the door subject to availability (by cash or check).

Screening of "William Matthews: Drawn to Paint" documentary

William Matthews: Drawn to Paint

2014, 50 Minute Running Time

Documentary

Produced by Amie Knox

Co-directed by Amie Knox and Chad Herschberger

 

William Matthews - masterful watercolor painter, globe-traveler, passionate collector of friends, generous participant in life, and occasional screw-up, is the subject of our documentary. As a keen observer of the changing west, Willy has managed to poetically document the cowboys of Nevada, known as buckaroos, as well as the stunning landscapes they inhabit. The architecture of the west, whether functional or obsolete, has long intrigued him, and he is gravitationally drawn to certain man-made locations year after year to observe their changing relationship to the land and to himself. Willy’s great gift is that he is able to capture the particular spirit of a place or a person with a minimalist’s eye and an intensely human connection.

Western Character: Expressions of Identity and Place in Portraiture

Four prominent American art scholars will take a close look at the subjects, settings and symbolism of significant western American portraits. Whether photographs, bronze busts or oil paintings, portraits of people from the American West can function as windows into the region’s culture and history. From the famous to the nameless, each face of the West tells a unique story.
