Gallery director offers insights on Egyptian Art 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 "Places Revisited: Egyptian Art and Architecture" on Wednesday, Oct. 1, at 12:30 p.m. The one-hour talk, the first of four lectures on art from different regions of the world, takes place in the gallery located in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.

In the first slide lecture, Dr. Mille will reconsider pre-Dynastic, Early Dynastic and Old Kingdom Egyptian sculpture, architecture and painting. This region of the world seemed a logical place to start this season's Director's Choice lectures, as it has been highlighted so often in current events. The other three Director's Choice lectures will consider modernism in Europe, the Russian Avant-Garde and the art of Tibet.

Those attending the first lecture can also view the gallery's current exhibit, "Across Time: The Photographs of Cynthia Brumback." Washington, D.C.-based Brumback turns her keen eye to everything from florals and landscapes to intriguing images from her trips to Asia. The exhibit includes composites, two-panel couplets and folding books from the 1970s through the present.

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