Color Sprawl: Works by Heather Deyling
August 24 – September 16, 2012

Cochenour Gallery, Ensor Learning Resource Center

Reception on Fri, Aug 24, 12-2 pm, Artist Talk at 12:30pm

Deyling’s felt installations are based on drawings influenced by natural forms juxtaposed with synthetic colors to create a tension between the organic and the man-made. While her paintings constitute a pictorial representation of the takeover of space, her wall-to-floor collages are the physical manifestation of this aesthetic spillover.

Do you have a favorite story about Georgetown College? Do you have a tale you’d like to hear or tell?

We invite you to attend the opening reception of “Georgetown Stories,” a display devoted to narratives about the college – both its factual history and personal anecdotes told by those who remember them. Prepared by Dr. Decker’s Curatorial Studies class, this exhibition features previously recorded interviews and new recordings and textual voices pulled from archival material. All of these narratives will be paired with objects from the college’s archives to provide a visual enhancement to the stories.

Previously recorded interviews were conducted by Dr. Jim Heizer in 1979 with the following alumni and friends of the college: Don and Chris Kerr Cawthorne, Sara Thomas Hambrick, Robert W. Hinton, Ira and Mary Thompson Porter, and George and Carolyn Rogers Redding. Come hear excerpts from these interviews at the exhibition.

New interviews have been recorded this fall by students in this course with: Janie Hill M. Polk ’53; Martha Hagan ’55; George Lusby ’58; Judy Apple ’65; Flash and Carol Williams ’66; Frankie Johnson ’66; Bob Mills ’67; Dave Forman ’72, and Laura Owsley ’92. Email interviews were also conducted with Eugene Enlow ’44; Shirley Bard ’53; Edward Clark ’54; and Rozanna Dalton ’75.

“Georgetown Stories” offers a glimpse into the past. Please join us on Friday, September 21 from noon until 2:00 pm in the Cochenour Gallery for the opening reception where students from the course will be on hand to answer questions about the exhibition. The reception will be complemented by a Fireside Chat at 1:00 pm Both events are free and open to the public.

Spring Invitational Exhibition and Sale

The American Academy of Equine Art, Inc. was established in 1980 by a group of ten distinguished artists, individually famed for their work on equine subjects. Their aim was to maintain a degree of excellence within the genre, and to promote the academic representation of the equine form in drawing, painting and sculpture. Loosely based on the Royal Academy of Arts in London, the AAEA serves to educate and encourage a broad awareness and appreciation of contemporary equine art as a specific and distinctively worthy segment of fine art in America.
