Focalpoint: Personal Objects: Art from Eastern and Southern Africa
January 14–May 11, 2014 Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Arts of Africa, the South Pacific, and the Americas, Focalpoint, third floor From jewelry and headdresses to household objects such as containers, headrests, and spoons, the art of eastern and southern Africa for the most part is intimately connected with the individual. Though these regions of Africa do not have the large numbers of masks and figural sculpture for which western and central Africa are known, the personal objects found there frequently reflect the deep cultural significances and attention to form and detail seen elsewhere on the continent. This installation has been organized to coincide with the A352/A552, Art of Eastern and Southern Africa, a course being taught during the spring 2014 semester in the Department of the History of Art.

New in the Galleries: ‘Max Beckmann’s Woodcuts’
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Doris Steinmetz Kellett Endowed Gallery of Twentieth-Century Art, first floor
February 4–June 22, 2014
Although the German Expressionist artist Max Beckmann was a prolific graphic artist (producing 374 prints during his lifetime), he created fewer than 20 woodcuts. Most were produced during the 1920s, when Germany was experiencing a revival of interest in the medium. Seven prints from this period will be featured in this installation.

Exhibit: Ed Bernstein – ‘Almost Illuminated’ at the Grunwald Gallery of Art

12:00 pm
Grunwald Gallery of Art (1201 E 7th St.)

The Grunwald Gallery of Art is pleased to announce Ed Bernstein: Almost Illuminated, an exhibition of works by Ed Bernstein, Professor Emeritus at Indiana University. Ed Bernstein: Almost Illuminated Is an exhibition that features work from Bernstein’s long career as an artist and educator. His artistic style displays a spectrum of qualities that engage and challenge the viewer. Bernstein writes, “My work is prefaced on ideas using object, history and memory. Though centered in printmedia, this retrospective includes sculpture and mixed media drawing. Common threads include dramatic play of light and dark; references to and reverence for historical Western art, particularly Italian, within a contemporary post-modern context, which hopefully adds timelessness, irony, and on occasion, humor. I am interested in the interface between technology and tradition both aesthetical and technical so I am continually pushing the boundaries of printmaking. “ A catalogue of the exhibition will be made available.

Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 12 to 4 pm.
