Tang Museum Receives Major Art Donation

Friday, November 14th, 2014

 

“In Out In Out Drawing #16 & #17,” 1993, by Karin Davie.

The Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery has received a generous donation of 75 works of contemporary art from the collection of computer programmer and philanthropist Peter Norton. The gift, drawn from Norton’s personal collection, is the first in a series of donations to university and college art museums across the country–such as UC Berkley, Williams, and Brandeis. This marks the beginning of Norton’s second major series of donations, with his first being in 2000, when he donated over 1,000 pieces to 32 institutions.

Times New Roman. Simple. I like it.

Times New Roman. Simple. I like it.

A message from the editorial board at Folio:

Folio, Skidmore’s oldest student-run literary magazine, is currently accepting submissions for publication on our website (skidmorefolio.tumblr.com) and in our annual end-of-the-year publication. We’re interested in any form of artistic expression, be it writing (poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, or perhaps some indeterminable genre), photography, art, sheet music, and anything else that involves the creative impulses of Skidmore students! Please send any submissions to folio@skidmore.edu as a separate attachment, along with any information you think we should know about the submission(s). Multiple submissions are both allowed and encouraged! If you have any questions, please email folio@skidmore.edu or jlemay@skidmore.edu.

Folio is one of two surviving literary magazines from my freshman year, with BARE being the other (RIP Skidmore Scribe and Palimpsest), so do what you can to keep these two magazines/websites in circulation and send all your artsy junk their way.

Eye Level Photography Show

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

By Lindsay Tucker ’13, from the Eye Level Photography Show

The Eye Level Photography Show will take place tomorrow evening in the Atrium.

Over the course of the semester,  Julia Luckett ’12, Hana Porter ’14, and Lindsay Tucker ’13 participated in an internship with Emma Dodge Hanson, a Saratoga photographer whose work has been featured in The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post, and other publications. During the internship, these three ladies helped out Hanson and completed their own photography projects, the best examples of which are compiled in tomorrow’s show.

These student photography exhibitions are always pretty impressive, so check it out on the way to stuffing your disgusting fucking faces at D-Hall.

Thursday December 13, 6-8pm @ Atrium

CTM Photo Contest

Sunday, October 2nd, 2011

this could be you

If you’re like me, which you’re probably not, you just spent your last $100 dollars on a delicious pony keg, a fiery fifth of scotch and a disposable camera. The investments on the beer and liquor seem to be non-refundable but once I find the camera I’m going to take some amazing pictures so I can win the CTM Photo Contest, which is offering cash money prizes.

This is the 5th year that the contest has been held and it seems the rules have been switched up a little. All photos must contain either the word ‘Skidmore’, a Skidmore logo, or ‘creative thought matters’. Ehh, that seems kind of lame so we’ve decided to provide a free photoshopping service to help you get your favorite images into the contest. All you need to do is send your images to skidmoreunofficial@gmail.com and we’ll be sure to send you a contest acceptable image. Submit your images online and be sure to check out the gallery to vote for your favorites.

Kiki Smith at the Tang

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Smith's Untitled (Head of Kuan Yin)

On September 17th, I Myself Have Seen It—an exhibit of artist Kiki Smith’s photography—will open at the Tang. Though she is mostly known for her work in other media, Smith’s photography is pretty striking and provocative and radical and other artsy words.

“The show explores the way that Smith uses photography to introduce multiple meanings, often broadening or complicating our understanding of her work, as she moves between different media—sculpture, prints, drawing, and photography” says Tang Associate Curator Rachel Seligman.

Smith has a perennial interest in feminist, sexuality, and gender issues, and her work certainly reflects these themes. Take note, guys-doing-Intro-to-Gender-Studies-to-meet-girls.

The show will run through December 30th, with several complementary events scheduled.

  • Wednesday, September 21st, at 12 noon; Tuesday, October 25th, at 12 noon; and Tuesday, November 15th, at 12 noon: Curator’s Tours of I Myself Have Seen It: Photography and Kiki Smith with Rachel Seligman.
  • Saturday, October 15th, 6–7:30 p.m.: Opening Reception celebrating the Tang’s fall exhibitions, including I Myself Have Seen It: Photography and Kiki Smith and Opener 22: Whiting Tennis.
  • Thursday, November 3rd, 7 p.m.: Dialogue with artist Kiki Smith.

Photo by Nicola Beuscher '12

The students that have been doing the Emma Dodge Hanson photography internship this past semester will debut their work in the Atrium of the Dining Hall Thursday at 6pm. I had the pleasure of previewing some of Mrs. Beuscher’s shots earlier in the week and I can guarantee going to this show will be more fun and rewarding than studying for finals like a philistine.

Previews of some of the show’s other work after the jump. (fbook)
