  • Exhibition: Observations of a Box (View)
    When: All Day - Event ends on Monday, March 6th, 2017
    Where: McCabe Library 0 0 - McCabe Lobby

    McCabe Library features work made by students in Professor Logan Grider's Foundation Drawing course from the fall of 2016. The students were given the problem of constructing a three-dimensional composition inside a box built from recycled cardboard. The compositions were inspired by specific paintings by Giotto, Poussin, Titian, and Caravaggio. The students had to think carefully about how light would play inside the boxes and then create windows for either natural light or artificial light to inform their compositions. To complete the project, students made drawings based on close observational study of the compositions inside their boxes.


  • Alum Performance: Sara Fraker '99 – In Tucson, AZ (View)
    When: All Day

    Secret Gardens

    A performance by Sara Fraker ’99

    Tuesday, Feb. 22 at 6 p.m.

    Holsclaw Hall, in the University of Arizona's Fred Fox School of Music
    1017 N Olive Road (near Speedway and Second St.)
    Tucson, AZ

    As part of the University of Arizona Faculty Artist Recital series, Sara Fraker '99 will perform on oboe and English horn. The exciting program includes work she commissioned from Asha Srinivasan inspired by Robin Wall Kimmerer’s book, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants. Drawing on ideas from the emerging field of ecomusicology, the project explores the intersection of environmental sustainability, soundscape ecology and musical performance. Fraker received a 2017 Artist Research and Development Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts for this project. The performance will also include what she calls “enigmatic chamber music for oboe": Hovhaness’s Koke No Niwa “Moss Garden”; Suite for Oboe and Piano (1939) by Pavel Haas; Hayashi’s “Blue Rock Thrush” Sonata; and Schickele’s Gardens.

    Fraker is assistant professor of oboe at the University of Arizona and has been a member of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra since 2005. She is also principal oboe of the Grammy-nominated ensemble True Concord Voices & Orchestra. 

    Friends and family are welcome to attend. Tickets are free.

    Please contact Laura Markowitz '85 at LMarkowitz@aol.com or 520-990-9582 by Feb. 12 if you plan on attending so we can reserve seats.

  • Alexis Petroff: Floating Drawings (View)
    When: Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017 12:00pm - 5:00pm
    Where: Lang Performing Arts Center 0 0 - LPAC List Gallery - List Gallery

    The List Gallery Presents: Alexis Petroff: Floating Drawings

    January 19–March 12, 2017

    The List Gallery, Swarthmore College is pleased to host Floating Drawings, an exhibition of mixed-media works by Alexis Petroff, the 2017 Marjorie Heilman Visiting Artist. Petroff will lecture about his work on Thursday, January 19 at 4:30 p.m. in the Lang Performing Arts Center Cinema, Swarthmore College. The List Gallery reception will follow 5:30-7:00 p.m. All are welcome and admission is free. A color catalog will accompany the exhibition, which will remain on view through March 12.

    Inspired by diverse sources, including junk mail, newsprint, personal photographs, and the art of Venezuelan geometric abstractionist, Gego (Gertrud Louise Goldschmidt), Petroff translates linear elements observed in art and nature into volumetric paper forms painted with gouache and supported by wire armatures. His three- dimensional forms float in front of and behind cloth grounds that are appliquéd with opaque or semi-transparent silk shapes and through which other layers and elements can be seen. Building upon and moving beyond his experience as a printmaker and painter, he creates a layered space—an imaginative terrain that parallels the gallery walls but challenges predictable boundaries.

    Since 2010, Petroff has also taken inspiration from found satellite images of long docks and boat houses that jut out into tributaries of the Mississippi and the Saint Johns Rivers. Drawing on an iPad, he interprets the long docks as thin, linear sculptural elements and he renders the boat houses as silk panels that float before the gallery wall as if on a river. His most recent work takes inspiration from the ways in which utility lines attach to the facades of buildings and explores the evocative relationships between transparent and opaque cloth panels. Exploring the poetry of light, matter, and space, Petroff conjures diverse associations with art history and the built environment.

    Alexis Petroff was born in 1956 in Bordeaux, France. His family relocated to Jamaica, Queens, where he attended public school before studying with Jack McCaslin at James Madison University and ultimately receiving a BFA from Indiana University in 1984 and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1987. He has mounted numerous one person exhibitions in the Chicago area including at the Art Institute, A.R.C. Gallery, and Klein Art Works Gallery and Evanston Arts Center, Evanston, Ill. His work is held in The Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Ryrerson and Burnham Libraries, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Prints and Drawings Collection at The Art Institute of Chicago, and numerous private collections.

    The List Gallery is located in the Lang Performing Arts Center, Swarthmore College.
