Don’t miss the Summer Mystery Art Hunt

Courtney Egan: Cultivarcereus_singleDoc

New Orleans based electronic-media artist, Courtney Egan, is known for her projection-based sculptural installations on botanical themes.  These works, described as ethereal, lovely, and poetic, are the result of Egan’s investigation of the natural world as experienced through media.  Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Egan was drawn to nature as a source for her work.  Yet, the artist was intrigued by the frequency with which we experience nature indirectly, through the mediated screens of computers and television.  Egan describes her work as “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” and “pretty trickery” that asks the viewer to consider our relationships to the natural world and technology.  Egan’s exhibition is part of the Critic and Artist Residency Series, sponsored by the FUNd at CSU.

Visiting Artist Lecture with Courtney Egan

Wednesday, September 17, 5 p.m. Griffin Concert Hall, UCA

Reception for The Garden in the Museum exhibitions to follow in the University Art Museum

 

  Nancy Blum: DrawingsOrange Blossoms

New York based artist, Nancy Blum, creates large-scale and extremely intricate botanical drawings, dense with the energy and activity of the natural world, but influenced by a plethora of artistic traditions.  Blum’s sometimes fanciful and fantastic interpretations draw from Eastern and Western cultures. Utilizing a variety of sources, from Chinese plum blossoms to Germanic botanical renderings to and more recent technological references, Blum creates thriving, seductive, and beautiful floral images.

Visiting Artist Gallery talk with Nancy Blum

September 3, 1 p.m. University Art Museum

 

The Illustrator’s Garden: Botanical Images from CSU Libraries Special Collection (through September 20)BOTA_001

Artists have long explored the botanical world, creating beautiful illustrations published in books and portfolios.  Many of these illustrations were scientific in nature, recording the world’s flora in detailed and accurate images meant to further botanical knowledge.  Yet, the use of the botanical illustration falls into wider contexts.  In this exhibition, selected from the rich holdings of the CSU Libraries Special Collections, well-known artists such as Walter Crane and Aubrey Beardsley as well as anonymous artists, draw from the botanical world for a myriad of purposes.  Scientific illustrations, garden manuals, literary collaborations, and children’s books are featured in this exhibition, co-curated by Janet Bishop, Coordinator for Archives and Special Collections, Ann Schwalm, Special Collections and Preservation Technician, and Linny Frickman, Director, University Art Museum.

Date: July 30, 2014 10:00 am
Cost: FREE and open to the public

June 3 – August 16; Museum Hours: Tuesday – Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Back by popular demand, children visiting the University Art Museum can take part in the SUMMER MYSTERY ART HUNT: a fun, interactive hunt for clues in the museum and surrounding areas. Age appropriate activity guides will be provided to all participants and all participants will receive a small prize. Drawings for other prizes will happen weekly. Parents and chaperones will also have the opportunity to enter their names for weekly prize drawings. For more information, contact Keith.Jentzsch@colostate.edu.

The Illustrator’s Garden: Botanical Images from CSU Libraries Special Collection (through September 20)BOTA_001

Artists have long explored the botanical world, creating beautiful illustrations published in books and portfolios.  Many of these illustrations were scientific in nature, recording the world’s flora in detailed and accurate images meant to further botanical knowledge.  Yet, the use of the botanical illustration falls into wider contexts.  In this exhibition, selected from the rich holdings of the CSU Libraries Special Collections, well-known artists such as Walter Crane and Aubrey Beardsley as well as anonymous artists, draw from the botanical world for a myriad of purposes.  Scientific illustrations, garden manuals, literary collaborations, and children’s books are featured in this exhibition, co-curated by Janet Bishop, Coordinator for Archives and Special Collections, Ann Schwalm, Special Collections and Preservation Technician, and Linny Frickman, Director, University Art Museum.

Don’t miss the Summer Mystery Art Hunt

Courtney Egan: Cultivarcereus_singleDoc

New Orleans based electronic-media artist, Courtney Egan, is known for her projection-based sculptural installations on botanical themes.  These works, described as ethereal, lovely, and poetic, are the result of Egan’s investigation of the natural world as experienced through media.  Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Egan was drawn to nature as a source for her work.  Yet, the artist was intrigued by the frequency with which we experience nature indirectly, through the mediated screens of computers and television.  Egan describes her work as “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” and “pretty trickery” that asks the viewer to consider our relationships to the natural world and technology.  Egan’s exhibition is part of the Critic and Artist Residency Series, sponsored by the FUNd at CSU.

  Nancy Blum: DrawingsOrange Blossoms

New York based artist, Nancy Blum, creates large-scale and extremely intricate botanical drawings, dense with the energy and activity of the natural world, but influenced by a plethora of artistic traditions.  Blum’s sometimes fanciful and fantastic interpretations draw from Eastern and Western cultures. Utilizing a variety of sources, from Chinese plum blossoms to Germanic botanical renderings to and more recent technological references, Blum creates thriving, seductive, and beautiful floral images.

The Illustrator’s Garden: Botanical Images from CSU Libraries Special Collection (through September 20)BOTA_001

Artists have long explored the botanical world, creating beautiful illustrations published in books and portfolios.  Many of these illustrations were scientific in nature, recording the world’s flora in detailed and accurate images meant to further botanical knowledge.  Yet, the use of the botanical illustration falls into wider contexts.  In this exhibition, selected from the rich holdings of the CSU Libraries Special Collections, well-known artists such as Walter Crane and Aubrey Beardsley as well as anonymous artists, draw from the botanical world for a myriad of purposes.  Scientific illustrations, garden manuals, literary collaborations, and children’s books are featured in this exhibition, co-curated by Janet Bishop, Coordinator for Archives and Special Collections, Ann Schwalm, Special Collections and Preservation Technician, and Linny Frickman, Director, University Art Museum.

Courtney Egan: Cultivarcereus_singleDoc

New Orleans based electronic-media artist, Courtney Egan, is known for her projection-based sculptural installations on botanical themes.  These works, described as ethereal, lovely, and poetic, are the result of Egan’s investigation of the natural world as experienced through media.  Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Egan was drawn to nature as a source for her work.  Yet, the artist was intrigued by the frequency with which we experience nature indirectly, through the mediated screens of computers and television.  Egan describes her work as “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” and “pretty trickery” that asks the viewer to consider our relationships to the natural world and technology.  Egan’s exhibition is part of the Critic and Artist Residency Series, sponsored by the FUNd at CSU.

Courtney Egan: Cultivarcereus_singleDoc

New Orleans based electronic-media artist, Courtney Egan, is known for her projection-based sculptural installations on botanical themes.  These works, described as ethereal, lovely, and poetic, are the result of Egan’s investigation of the natural world as experienced through media.  Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, Egan was drawn to nature as a source for her work.  Yet, the artist was intrigued by the frequency with which we experience nature indirectly, through the mediated screens of computers and television.  Egan describes her work as “subtly impossible, hybrid tableaus” and “pretty trickery” that asks the viewer to consider our relationships to the natural world and technology.  Egan’s exhibition is part of the Critic and Artist Residency Series, sponsored by the FUNd at CSU.
