Gallery director considers early photography at the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery at Fairfield University


Diana Mille, Ph.D., director of the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery at Fairfield University, will present "The Expanding Domain 1854-1918" on Wednesday, Dec. 1, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the gallery, located in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. Dr. Mille will introduce the world of early photography and its subjects, including portraits and documentation of travel, architecture, nature, science and war. She will also discuss the various processes of early photography.

The talk is the second of four Director's Choice lectures on selected topics in modern and contemporary art scheduled for the 2004-05 season.

Those attending can view the gallery's current exhibit, "Photographs of the Athenian Acropolis: The Restoration Project," which will be on display through Sunday, Dec. 5. The collection of nearly 100 black-and-white photos includes a section of the Parthenon's marble floor and details of architecture and sculpture. It documents about a quarter-century of restoration and conservation work on the site, one of the most recognized and revered examples of High Classical architecture in the world.

Admission to the Director's Choice lecture is $5. For more information, call (203)254-4000, ext. 2969.
