This exhibition celebrates the transformative gift of the James Reed Collection of Old Master, 19th-century, and modern prints to the Fairfield University Art Museum. Assembled over several decades by artist, collector and Master Printer James Reed, the collection comprises more than 1,500 prints spanning the 16th through the early 21st centuries. The exhibition presents highlights from the three great strengths of the Reed Collection: 19th-century French etching and lithography; German Expressionist woodcuts and lithographs; and modern and contemporary prints.

Hildreth Meière: The Art of Commerce

Bellarmine Hall Galleries

April 18 – September 20, 2019

Hildreth Meière was a prolific muralist whose commissioned works adorn the walls and ceilings of public buildings from New York to California. Born in New York in 1892, Meière first studied art in Florence, Italy, where she discovered the frescoes and mosaics that were to inform her craft. Continuing her studies in New York, California, and Chicago, she traveled to Europe during the summers where she was introduced to les arts decoratifs, later to be known as Art Deco, of which she became an early exponent.

Rodin Sculpture

Rodin
Truth, Form, Life

Walsh Gallery, Quick Center for the Arts

September 13 – December 21, 2019

This small but powerful retrospective called RODIN: TRUTH, FORM, LIFE is comprised of 22 bronzes. Visitors to this exhibition will come face to face with the powerful emotions embedded in the works of the “father” of modern sculpture. Rodin’s focus on depicting human emotion and intimate moments upended the world of traditional sculpture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His innovative processes of repetition and multiplication broke boundaries, and his influence endures today.
