The First American Coloring Book(s): Theodore de Bry - America: The Complete Plates, 1590-1602 External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: The Mariners' Museum and Parkl
On a trip to London in 1588, renowned engraver Theodore de Bry met artist John White and mathematician Thomas Harriot, both recently returned from Sir Walter Raleigh's mission to explore the "new found land of Virginia." Inspired by White's watercolors of North American Indians and Harriot's maps of the Carolina coast's barrier islands, de Bry published Grand Voyages, a series of exploration narratives illustrated with his own copper plate engravings. De Bry invited many European artists to hand-color the engravings that essentially became America's first coloring books. Never before have these "complete plates" been published in one exquisite, oversized volume, co-authored by Larry E. Tise. ///// Tise, now a Philadelphia-based historian, spent the last decade traveling across Europe and America, examining all known and accessible copies of de Bry's books in libraries, museums (including The Mariners' Museum), and private collections. Tise holds a PhD from the University of North Carolina, and was a history administrator for many years. ///// To purchase an advance copy of The First American Coloring Book(s) prior to the lecture, go to the Museum?s online web shop at: https://shop.marinersmuseum.org/books/. After you've made your purchase, your book will be placed on hold at the Museum to either pick up at your convenience or prior to the lecture.

Emanation 2019 External Event Page
Millville, New Jersey
Emanation 2019 is on display through December 31, 2019 in the Museum of American Glass at WheatonArts! Emanation 2019 is the third exhibition of contemporary art featuring new works developed and created by artists invited to utilize the resources and facilities at WheatonArts for experiment based exploration. The results are displayed with an emphasis on each artist's creative process. "The artists in this iteration of Emanation have not previously worked in glass, but are creative thinkers and problem solvers, who have embraced the opportunity to experiment in a new medium," notes Julie Courtney, curator of Emanation 2019. The artists she brought to the project each have a unique perspective and aesthetic on the integration of glass into their works, creating powerful visuals (and even sounds) relating to invisible labor, prison incarceration rates, beauty in destruction, and "cartoon violence," just to name a few. Artists participating in the exhibit are Jesse Krimes, Tristin Lowe, Martha McDonald and Laura Baird, Karyn Olivier, Richard Torchia, Allan Wexler, and Jo Yarrington. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is included with general admission to WheatonArts.
Included with General Admission: $10.00 Adults, $9.00 Senior Adults (62+), $7.00 Students, Children 5 and under are free.

SHEILA HICKS - Campo Abierto (Open Field) External Event Page
Miami Beach, Florida
Grouping works of art from various periods, Campo Abierto (Open Field) explores the formal, social and environmental aspects of landscape that have been present, yet rarely examined, throughout Sheila Hicks’ expansive career. Prompting contemplations on collaboration, dialogue and discussion, the exhibition is rooted in the reconfiguration of Escalade Beyond Chromatic Lands (2016-2017), the artist’s vast installation produced for the Arsenale at the Venice Biennale in 2017. The exhibition brings together several large-format installations, as well as more intimately-scaled works, that utilize and transform the architecture of The Bass’ upstairs galleries. The selection of works in Campo Abierto (Open Field) foreground the museum’s context in South Florida, a multilingual locus traversed by complex immigration waves and patterns, alongside environmental concerns.

It is a chance for you to share problems and solutions, exchange ideas and information, and compare your organization with others…. It is an opportunity network. It is late nights spent discussing how many steam fire engines are left in the country, new exhibit techniques, or the merits of the latest museum collections database program. In short, it's… great friends, great food, and a great fun!
