Gallery director explores Early Modernism 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 "New Directions: A Study in Early Modernism" on Wednesday, Dec. 10, at 12:30 p.m. The one-hour talk, the second 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.
Dr. Mille will consider the sculptures of French master Auguste Rodin (1840-1917). World famous for his often-reproduced works "The Thinker" and "The Kiss," Rodin was known for his strength and realism, as well as thoughtful depictions of human beauty, passion, distress and moral weakness in such sculptures as "The Burghers of Calais," "Eternal Springtime" and "The Gates of Hell."
In future Director's Choice lectures, Mille will consider the Russian Avant-Garde and the art of Tibet.
Those attending the 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.
