From the Ground Up: Georgetown College Spaces and Places

Sep 23, 2011 — Oct 12, 2011

Cochenour Gallery

This exhibition has been prepared by students in Dr. Decker’s Curatorial Studies course, which is offered every fall at Georgetown College. This show takes a look at the college’s buildings and structures — those that stand and others that have withered away. Items from the college’s archives and other primary sources that tell the story of our campus and some of its buildings will be on view. “From the Ground Up” offers a glimpse into the past and aims to connect campus buildings and structures with cherished memories of these spaces and places. Attention will be paid to Giddings, Pawling, and Rucker Halls, Hinton Field, the Old and John L. Hill chapels, as well as  newer construction, including the Student Center, the LRC, and the soon-to-be-completed Rucker Village.

The following GC art and history majors are involved in the preparation of this exhibition: Jordan Gill, Katie Mann, Sarah McIntosh, Shawn McPeek, Dana Sabato, Jen Stephenson, Devon Stivers, Terrell Taylor, and Portia Watson. Each student will be present during the exhibition opening and will, also, share some of the human interest stories from our buildings and their past. Join us for this afternoon event where we’ll be joined by historical interpretations of Professor Jonathan E. Farnam and Issachar Pawling, as well as a “Rucker Girl” and other friends.

Reception from 12-2 and Fireside Chat at 1:00 pm on Friday
(The Chat is a GC NEXUS Event)

Una Vision de la Mexicanidad – Harold Winslow

Jan 12, 2012 — Feb 16, 2012

Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery

Reception on Thursday, February 9 from 5-7PM with Talk by Art Historian Jamie Ratliff at 5:30 PM

Harold Winslow was an African-American painter born in Dayton, Ohio in 1918. In 1940, frustrated by his limited opportunities to develop as an artist in the United States, he traveled to Mexico, drawn by the work of muralists Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Jose Clemente Orosco. Winslow spent the rest of his life in Mexico, working on projects as varied as illustrating the Treatise of Human Anatomy (1940), painting watercolors (he won a national watercolor competition in 1942), and painting murals. He became a Mexican citizen in 1951, and continued to produce art and mount exhibitions until his death in Mexico City in August, 2001. Now, the Harold Winslow Foundation has selected 31 of his 1300 extant works to recognize his achievement and allow others to experience his art. Georgetown College is pleased to be working with the Kentucky Institute for International Studies (KIIS) to share this exhibition with the central Kentucky community.

Deeper Into the Presence: Pictures from Red River Gorge by Michael Winters

Reception on Thursday, January 26, 4:30-6:30PM with
 Artist Talk at 5:30PM

The title of Michael Winters’ exhibition is taken from a personally inspiring passage by noted Kentucky author Wendell Berry.  In the way Berry uses words, Winters uses his camera to create pictures of his favorite place, the picturesque Red River Gorge.  Winters’ photographs pay homage to not only his humble ambitions of capturing the sublimity of the Gorge, they also reveal that beauty can often be found in the details.

A Passionate Pursuit: The Milward Collection

Exhibition Dates:
 March 2 – April 20

Reception:
Friday, March 23, 2012 6-8 pm

Georgetown College Art Department and Galleries have dubbed 2012 the Year of the Collector. As one of several events in this year-long celebration, the Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery is presenting the exhibition A Passionate Pursuit: The Milward Collection. Over the past 30 years, Lexington resident John Milward has acquired a large group of artworks, often working with Greg Ladd of Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington. Milward started with sporting prints by Alfred Munnings and paintings by George Claxton, but since 1987 has focused primarily on contemporary members of the New English Art Club, which was founded in London in 1886. Among the 75 works on view are paintings, prints, and other works on paper, plus 19th-century French bronzes. Milward hopes that through exhibitions like this, someone else “might get bitten by the [collecting] bug.”

Dialogue with Friends of Irene Corey at 5:30 p.m.

During her fifty-plus year career, artist Irene Lockridge Corey (1926-2010) was a veritable force in the world of theatrical makeup and costume design.  Perhaps best known for creating the guise for the friendly purple and green dinosaur Barney, Ms. Corey served as chair of the Georgetown College art department from 1952 to 1960, where she and her first husband, Orlin Corey (then theatre department chair), collaborated on numerous theatrical productions, including The Book of Job, 1957, which was produced off Broadway and around the world and was a summer attraction for twenty years at Pine Mountain State Park in Kentucky.

Visual Theatre: Celebrating Irene Corey features works of art by Irene Corey as well as archival materials from Georgetown College’s permanent collections.  Paintings and sculpture from the personal collections of Georgetown residents Maribeth Hambrick, Carolyn Johnson and Sis Curry, and Lexintonians Mary and James McCormick, will also be on view.   During the opening reception on March 8, several friends of Irene Corey will be present to reminisce about her time at Georgetown College and to celebrate the contributions of this remarkable pioneer in the field of theatre.

The Hanover Connection: Installations by Leticia Bajuyo and Deb Whistler

May 24 – September 14, 2012

Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery

Closing Reception 
Friday, September 14, 12-2 p.m. with Artist Talk at 12:30 p.m.

This summer, Hanover College, Indiana, art faculty members Leticia Bajuyo and Deb Whistler bring their unique, contemporary sculptural installations to Georgetown College’s Anne Wright Wilson Fine Arts Gallery.

Bajuyo’s work focuses on the society’s quest for the latest and greatest digital technology. Composed of an item that is still functional but becoming increasingly outdated, Bajuyo combines CDs into the shape of a Victrola horn in her quest for the viewer to create “new memories that fall outside of technological economies of desire” and to acknowledge “overlooked complexities” like deciding you need to buy another, newer smart phone. Whistler has created a new body of work inspired by Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice in Wonderland. Through direct references to characters and scenes from the story, Whistler reinterprets the tale as a “survival guide,” spurring the viewer to consider how curiosity and pushing through failures helps one navigate a chaotic world.

Leticia Bajuyo creates, lives, and teaches in Southern Indiana where she is an Associate Professor of Art at Hanover College. After earning a BFA in 1998 from the University of Notre Dame and an MFA in 2001 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, she came to Hanover College to join the Art and Art History Department.

Deb Whistler is professor of two-dimensional art and chair of the Art/Art History Department at Hanover College. She received her BFA from Miami University and her MFA with a concentration in printmaking from the University of Cincinnati. As a child, Deb was fascinated by the natural world discovered in a creek bed near her home. Her early childhood interests in the fragility of life continue to influence her conceptual work as an adult.
