The course surveys the development of printmaking from the 15th century to the present with reference to the work of many famous artists including Dürer, Rembrandt, Goya, Piranesi, Gillray, Whistler and Picasso.

Postgraduate Show September 2018 – Some Impressions

Our Postgrads have worked hard to create this exhibition and they can be proud of what they have achieved. Here are some impressions of the show and the private view, which was on Saturday, 19th September.

The show is still open Monday, 24th & Tuesday, 25th, 10am-5pm, and Wednesday, 26th September, 10am-3pm. You’re very welcome to visit and explore the postgraduate show and the Sea Change & Discourse: Reynolds to Rego exhibitions in our public galleries! The latter are still on until Friday, 28th, 10am-5pm daily.

Follow-up 5. German Talk

Hello all,

it was great seeing you yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed the little ‘pop-up’- exhibition. While I was giving the presentation, I actually noticed some mistakes that I had made in the text. I hope I found them all now. Below, you find the corrected version.

As this talk was different from the usual format, I also include some photos; some of those who couldn’t attend last night were curious about what would be on show. Apologies for the bad quality of the images; considering that I work at the School of Art, I should’ve borrowed a proper camera rather than make do with my inadequate mobile phone….

The next talk will be on the 7th of November and in connection with one of the forthcoming exhibitions in our galleries. I’ll publish more information closer to the time in the usual places.

I always hesitate to take personal data of people, but if you would like to receive emails about future ‘German Talks’ (and ‘French Talks’, if you like), you’re very welcome to email me your email address on kaw25@aber.ac.uk and I’ll keep you updated.

Best wishes, und bis bald,

Karen

5. German Talk – Powell and German Culture – September 2018

(Click on images to enlarge them.)

‘Travelling Through: Landscapes/Landmarks/Legacies’, School of Art Gallery, 12/10/2018 – 8/2/2019

‘Platform Two’, Steve Whitehead, 1985, oil and alkyd on canvas

Drawn from the School of Art’s extensive collection, Travelling Through traverses five centuries of visual culture ranging from sublime and picturesque landscapes to nineteenth-century travel photographs, twentieth-century London Underground posters and contemporary responses to our environment in a variety of media.

The exhibition, curated by Dr Harry Heuser, explores relationships between tourism and landscape art, between the consumption of signposted sights and the production of personal insights, between the fleeting experience of our journeys and the carbon footprint we leave behind.
