September3 - Thu^5:00 pmThe 104th Annual Exhibition, "Breath/Breadth: Contemporary American Black Male Identity" Opening Reception
Maier Museum of Art
The 104th Annual Exhibition, "Breath/Breadth: Contemporary American Black Male Identity" Opening Reception - The 104th Annual Exhibition, "Breath/Breadth: Contemporary American Black Male Identity," explores wide-ranging visual expressions, defying the impulse to hone in on singular, cohesive definitions because it is precisely the impulse to categorize that encourages racial profiling. While focusing on a particular demographic, "Breath/Breadth" demonstrates the complexity of this demographic. Artists include Kevin Beasley, Mark Bradford, Nick Cave, Todd Gray, Barkley Hendricks, Rashid Johnson, Titus Kaphar, Kerry James Marshall, Toyin Odutola, Hank Willis Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley. Breath/Breadth aims to be intentional about revealing diversity, while also making reference to recent racial strife embodied in the concept of ?breath? as it refers to the now very charged quote ?I can?t breathe? resonating with the current dialogue over how we identify and value black lives. At the same time, our collective concept of breath is poetic and meditative, ultimately common, life-sustaining, non-racial. Reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments and a cash bar (beer/wine) provided.

Lecture by Evie Terrono, who has a BA from the University of Crete in Greece and MA from Queen's College.

Smith Hall Theatre, Smith Memorial Building
Sir Nicholas Penny, former director of The National Gallery in London (February 2008 ? August 2015), will trace the fascination that artists have had with rock structures and marble patterns which seem to mimic architectural or sculptural forms or have been taken to be representational pictures. It will be argued that this topic connects with important stands in the history of European ornament and in abstract art.

November6 - Fri^5:00 pm'Venetian Visions: Selections from the National Gallery in London' Exhibit Opening Reception
Maier Museum of Art
'Venetian Visions: Selections from the National Gallery in London' Exhibit Opening Reception - The inaugural exhibition of the partnership between the National Gallery in London and Randolph College explores the richness and variety of Venetian painting in the Renaissance and offers three themes for visitors to consider: friends and heroes; art, poetry, and the pastoral; and the Madonna and Child. Cima da Conegliano?s 'David and Jonathan' represents two heroes of the Israelites, but departs from the biblical narrative of their military exploits and seems instead to highlight their friendship. Cima?s 'Madonna and Child' is exhibited with two paintings from other collections to illustrate how Venetian artists responded to the demands of changing tastes and different contexts in the representation of Mary and Jesus. The 'Homage to a Poet' by a follower of Giorgione intrigues us with its still-unidentified subject. It embodies the spirit of ancient poetry celebrating nature that was eagerly collected and emulated by Renaissance scholars, poets, and artists. It demonstrates the contribution of Venetian painters to the development of the pastoral, an important subject to European art and literature for subsequent centuries. Free and open to the public. Cash bar (beer/wine) with refreshments provided.
