    Where: List Gallery in the Lang Performing Arts Center

    https://www.swarthmore.edu/list-gallery/jan-baltzell-drawings https://www.swarthmore.edu/list-gallery/sue-hettmanspergerThe List Gallery, Swarthmore College is pleased to present concurrent exhibitions: Sue Hettmansperger, Iterations: Painting and Collage and Jan Baltzell: Drawings.

    The Department of Art and Art History is pleased to celebrate Sue Hettmansperger's long career by naming her the 2019 Marjorie Heilman Visiting Artist. She has already been recognized with fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts for elaborating traditions established by early 20th century American Modernists such as Marsden Hartley, Arthur Dove, and Georgia O’Keefe. Using a limited palette, abstracted forms, flattened spaces, and inventive gestures, she creates transcendental and emblematic representations of nature. Her varied sources of inspiration include southwestern deserts, human anatomy, botanical forms, topology and mapping, Photoshopped images, and the by-products of industrial technology. Studying such diverse imagery through the lenses of drawing, printmaking, painting, and collage, she has developed an idiosyncratic vocabulary of forms, textures, and gestures. 

    Comparing her collages with their painted counterparts, we see her ideas evolve through translations of scale, media, and color. Her complex grids of similarly sized canvases simultaneously read as still lifes, landscapes, and successive states of mind. Intimate in scale, but ambitious in scope, her works offers elegies in response to our lost connection to nature.

    During the past forty years, Jan Baltzell has exhibited her vibrantly colored paintings in more than twenty solo exhibitions in the Philadelphia region, and her works have been featured in group exhibitions both regionally and nationally. Her masterful compositions reflect varied artistic influences, from the gestural abstractions of Joan Mitchell and Willem de Kooning to the structured geometries and soft surfaces of frescos by Piero della Francesca. Although she has been rightly celebrated for her compelling use of color, Baltzell's List Gallery exhibition calls attention to the way drawing has been fundamental to her creative practice. Comprised of ten drawings made during the past three years, Jan Baltzell: Drawings and an accompanying catalog offer viewers a chance to understand the expressive immediacy and elasticity of the artist's drawing.

    Since 1985, Jan Baltzell has taught at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where she has served in the B.F.A., Post-Baccalaureate, and M.F.A. programs. She has also taught art as a visiting instructor or critic at diverse institutions, including Towson State University, Drexel University, and Art Institute of Philadelphia.

    When: Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 4:30pm - 6:30pm
    Where: Lang Performing Arts Center Lobby (LPAC)

    Doug Varone and Dancers Residency

    This residency brings together award- winning choreographer Doug Varone, his company of dancers, and Swarthmore dance students in a weeklong residency of classes, discussion, and performance. Twelve students will have the opportunity to share the stage with the company in the culminating performance. The Varone company will perform Lux (2006). The Washington Post describes Lux as, “Luxuriant. Lux is all about freedom. It is what dancing really feels like, the kind of dancing I might dream about: loose and sweeping in a spirit of exultation. Varone puts the beating heart at the center of his work. Lux sates you with dancing, but you’re still reluctant to leave the feast.”

    The students will join the company for “Mass”*, from their celebrated work in the shelter of the fold (2016). According to a recent review of the work from Broadway World, “Doug Varone and Dancers’ in the shelter of the fold is a transcendent and transfixing inquiry into public and private relationships to faith through seven vignettes that intermingled fluidly. It would be nearly impossible not to walk away without feeling inspired, uplifted, and moved on a deeper spiritual level.”

    Doug Varone and Dancers continues to be among the most sought-after ambassadors and educators in the field. The company’s multidiscipline residency programs take audiences deeper into the work, with a hands-on approach that moves beyond the studio to speak directly to people of all ages and backgrounds, both dancers and nondancers alike.

    When: Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 7:00pm - 8:30pm
    Where: Kohlberg Hall Scheuer Room - Multi-Purpose Room

    "Half-Mile, Upwind, On Foot" tells the story of communities who are working to challenge two different pipeline projects in Pennsylvania that they believe are disruptive, dangerous, and unnecessary. Through use of eminent domain, billion-dollar pipeline projects are being developed close to homes, schools and community centers--all for the delivery of natural gas and "highly volatile liquids" overseas. The film shares stories of people who are rising up to assert their basic right to a clean, sustainable environment and a safe community as they are confronted by extraction companies and an unfriendly system that often favors corporate power over the rights of people."--from publisher
