Phi Beta Kappa Lecture: “Marked and Modern: 20th Century Jewish Artists”
Sep 14 @ 7:30 pm

Marked and Modern: 20th-Century Jewish Artists
Although their careers were extraordinarily successful as modern artists and their work seemingly has no comparable form or content, the works of three great 20th-century painters still convey unsuspected affinities deriving from their common Jewish heritage. Marc Chagall, Ben Shahn, and Mark Rothko were all born in Eastern Europe at roughly the same moment–the turn of the century–yet their careers diverged radically. What do they share? And what does this tell us about the situation of Jewish artists (or indeed, of any “minority” artists) in the art world of the twentieth century?

Larry Silver, Farquhar Professor of Art History at Penn, is a specialist in painting and graphics of Northern Europe, particularly Germany and the Netherlands, during the era of Renaissance and Reformation. He has served as president of the College Art Association as well as of the Historians of Netherlandish Art, and was recently honored with the University’s Lindback Award for Teaching Excellence. Publications include Rubens, Velázquez, and the King of Spain; The Essential Dürer; Rembrandt’s Faith; Marketing Maximilian; Peasant Scenes and Landscapes; Hieronymus Bosch; and a general survey, Art in History. He has organized a number of print exhibitions, among them Grand Scale: Monumental Prints in the Age of Dürer and Titian and Graven Images, dealing with professional engravers of the 16th-century Netherlands.

Art on View: “Skepsis” recent work by Breon Gilleran
Oct 1 all-day

Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, October 1, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., with a gallery talk at 6 p.m.

This exhibition originated when Steven Pearson, associate professor of art and art history at McDaniel and director of the college’s Rice Gallery, suggested that Breon Gilleran collaborate with McDaniel biology professor Katie Staab and students in her comparative anatomy classes. The result is a collection “of sculptural objects and works on paper installed alongside McDaniel students’ scientific works that will transform the Rice Gallery into a cabinet of curiosities,” according to Gilleran. She promises a “freewheeling exhibit integrating art and science in an encyclopedic collection of objects whose categorical boundaries are porous.”

Gilleran grew up in Detroit, and was raised in a family of artists. She began her own formal training at Cass Technical High School, an early prototype for a magnet school for the arts, and left Detroit in 1967 for California, where she was briefly caught up in the counter-culture in San Francisco. She moved to Baltimore with her now-husband in 1978 and continued her studies in painting at Maryland Institute College of Art, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting. She later returned to school and completed her Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture at the University of Maryland in 2002.

Gilleran, an assistant professor of art at Goucher College, maintains an active studio practice and exhibition schedule, as well as works with students privately and in workshops at Area 405 in Baltimore. Requests for interpreters are welcome and can be made up to a week prior to the event by contacting interpretingservices@mcdaniel.edu. Other accommodation requests can be directed to Conference Services at 410-857-2212.

Global Initiatives World Wise Documentary Series “North-South.com”

McDaniel’s Global Initiatives hosts this screening of “North-South.com,” a documentary that relates the stories of hopes, dreams, disappointments and happiness that develop from online encounters between black women from Cameroon and white European men. The film provides a provocative contemporary portrait of the relationship between the “developed” and “developing” worlds. (2009, 53 minutes, not rated).  Call 410-857-2461 for more information.

Art on View: “Skepsis” recent work by Breon Gilleran
Oct 4 all-day

Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, October 1, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., with a gallery talk at 6 p.m.

This exhibition originated when Steven Pearson, associate professor of art and art history at McDaniel and director of the college’s Rice Gallery, suggested that Breon Gilleran collaborate with McDaniel biology professor Katie Staab and students in her comparative anatomy classes. The result is a collection “of sculptural objects and works on paper installed alongside McDaniel students’ scientific works that will transform the Rice Gallery into a cabinet of curiosities,” according to Gilleran. She promises a “freewheeling exhibit integrating art and science in an encyclopedic collection of objects whose categorical boundaries are porous.”

Gilleran grew up in Detroit, and was raised in a family of artists. She began her own formal training at Cass Technical High School, an early prototype for a magnet school for the arts, and left Detroit in 1967 for California, where she was briefly caught up in the counter-culture in San Francisco. She moved to Baltimore with her now-husband in 1978 and continued her studies in painting at Maryland Institute College of Art, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting. She later returned to school and completed her Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture at the University of Maryland in 2002.

Gilleran, an assistant professor of art at Goucher College, maintains an active studio practice and exhibition schedule, as well as works with students privately and in workshops at Area 405 in Baltimore. Requests for interpreters are welcome and can be made up to a week prior to the event by contacting interpretingservices@mcdaniel.edu. Other accommodation requests can be directed to Conference Services at 410-857-2212.
