Recent Acquisitions: Prints by Robert Kipniss, Opening Reception
Maier Museum of Art

'Recent Acquisitions: Prints by Robert Kipniss,' Opening Reception - This exhibit is comprised of a group of prints by Robert Kipniss that were recently given to the Maier Museum of Art by James F. White, who has collected Kipniss’ work since he was a young adult. After an almost random discovery of the artist, Mr. White also discovered that they lived close to one another, and ultimately they established a friendship. Kipniss, whose parents were commercial artists, intended to be a poet, but devoted himself to painting, once he realized one could get college credits for art classes. He became a printmaker later, and his attention to light and dark is well suited to the mezzotint in particular. In addition to 20 prints, Mr. White also donated a copper plate of one of the works, in order to show something of the process of creating a print. In the catalogue for the exhibition Regard at his San Francisco gallery, Rowland Weinstein said, "It is impossible to mistake a Kipniss for something else." The artist puts it this way: "Seeing provokes feelings, if you are open to feeling something." Reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided

"Once More unto the Breach: The Art of War before, during, and after the Fight" - Lecture Series by William A. McIntosh - War and the Creative Impulse: Searching for Sense in the Senseless

"When war is declared, it will be impossible to restrain the poets. Rhyme remains the most effective drum" (Jean Giraudoux, La Guerre de Troie n'aura pas lieu, 1935). This lecture posits danger and destruction as muses inspiring the eye, hand, and voice of the artist at war, whether at work on the frontline or homefront, in the ghetto or death camp. Joe Rosenthal's Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima and Ugo Giannini's drawings of the Normandy D-Day Landing are among the works at issue in this lecture. Lecture at 10:30 a.m.; doors open at 10 a.m. for refreshments.
