Sordid & Sacred:  The Beggars in Rembrandt's Etchings 

White Gallery | June 3 - September 24

Rembrandt Van Rijn, widely recognized as the greatest practitioner of the etching technique in the history of art, created a body of work unparalleled in richness and beauty.  Rembrandt repeatedly chose beggars as the subject for his etchings.  Says Gary Schwartz of Dover Publications, “…Many of Rembrandt’s etchings are of biblical scenes with biblical figures portrayed as beggars.”

Luster:  Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting

White Gallery | Summer 2019

The birth of the modern car occurred over 150 years ago in 1860 in Germany.  In the United States, Henry Ford Company was established in 1901. A year later it morphed into Cadillac Motor Company which Ford left, along with the rights to his name. A new Ford Motor Company emerged in 1903 in Detroit with backing from a dozen investors, including the Dodge brothers. The same year, 1903, Harley-Davidson, was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Much has changed since those early automotive years, but perhaps nothing more so than America’s love affair with cars and motorcycles, which has expressed itself culturally and artistically in so many ways.
