Two Vanderbilt art gallery exhibits will be open for viewing through Commencement Day, closing at 4 p.m. on Friday, May 11.
Reflections of the Dutch Golden Age: Etchings by Adriaen van Ostade from the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery is housed on the main floor of Cohen Memorial Hall on the Peabody campus. After Rembrandt, Adriaen van Ostade was the major Dutch etcher of the seventeenth century. The etchings are representative of Ostade’s range of subjects: images of rural tradesmen, parents with their children, village fairs, itinerant peddlers, and quack doctors.
As a complement to the works by Ostade on view, a selection of prints by several of his contemporaries, including Nicolaes Berchem, Ferdinand Bol, Cornelis Dusart, and Rembrandt van Rijn, are featured, along with a sixteenth-century engraving after Pieter Bruegel the Elder.
Senior Show 2012, on display in Space 204, the second-floor gallery in the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Art Center, at 25th and Garland avenues on the Vanderbilt campus, includes paintings, drawings, ceramics, installations, and performances.
The 13 participating seniors are Rosie Andrews, Grace Burnworth, Xi Chen, Stephanie Falcone, Kathryn Jaramillo, Lauren Jopling, Wei Kong, Patrick Louis, Katherine Manire, Hannah Stahl (the 2012 Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet Award winner), Ricky Don Taylor Jr., Yeon-Sil Yi (second-place Hamblet Award winner), and Lucia Alvarez Zeevaert. ~Fay
