Gallery director offers insights into 20th century art criticism at the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery


Diana Mille, Ph.D., director of the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery at Fairfield University, will present "Rising Above Our Fears - Criticism in the Twentieth Century" on Wednesday, Dec. 4 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the gallery located in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University. The talk is the secDond of four Director's Choice lectures on selected topics in modern and contemporary art scheduled for the 2002-03 season.

Dr. Mille will explore and simplify the more difficult methods of analysis or criticism used to describe art in the 20th century.

Those attending can also view the gallery's current exhibit, "Sal Sirugo - From the Intimate to the Infinite." The exhibit, which closes Dec. 8, includes works by Sal Sirugo, a highly original abstract expressionist who considered abstract spaces, landscapes and semi-abstract heads, often on canvasses only a few inches in height and width.

Admission to the Director's Choice lecture is $5. Participants are invited to bring a brown bag lunch. For more information, call (203) 254-4000, ext. 2969.
