Special Event:
Gallery Talk by Aliza Augustine at Douglass Library

February 4, 2010 at Noon

This Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series exhibit brings to the galleries two artists selected by a panel of visual arts professionals. Aliza Augustine and Ashley Watson create photographic narratives drawn from personal histories, social/political commentaries, and contradictions between what has been deemed as "good and evil." Their work provides a visual component to the Institute for Research on Women's 2009-10 interdisciplinary seminar, "Gendered Agency", that is exploring how women and men respond to conditions such as impoverishment and globalization in ways that are gendered and/or resistant.

"The Art and Science of Happiness: Patricia Dahlman"
September 7 - December 10, 2010

Mabel Smith Douglass Library Galleries
8 Chapel Drive, New Brunswick, NJ 08901
Gallery Hours M-F 9am - 4:30 pm; Weekends by Appointment
Directions

Patricia Dahlman's multimedia work was selected by a panel of visual arts professionals to provide a visual component to the Rutgers Institute for Research on Women's 2010-11 interdisciplinary seminar, "The Art and Science of Happiness." The theme explores how economic security, political stability, family, careers, health, community involvement, and other domains contribute (or not) to ones sense of being "happy." Dahlman's subject matter ranges across the political, social, and economic spectrums, while addressing issues of nature and society. She uses sewn and stitched forms made from canvas and colorful fabric to create both sculptural and 2-dimensioal works that are playful or serious, and sometimes both. The works selected for this exhibition include landscapes, abstract forms, narratives and figural works that comment on the environmental destruction in her community as well as recent political events in America. They represent her visions and hopes for an improved future for society and the world. These pieces also illustrate the University's 2010-11 Global Initiatives theme, "Ecologies in the Balance: The Way Forward."
