HUNTINGTON MUSEUM OF ART 6 p.m. to Midnight 1 I am delighted to have arrived here in Huntington and to have taken up my position at the Huntington Museum of Art. As many of you know the museum has a rich collection and an important history as a place for people of all ages to learn about the arts and cultures from around the world. We have a number of interesting and important exhibits and programs soon to open at the museum. First up is Water Water Everywhere Paean to a Vanishing Resource which will include videos created by 41 different artists all that relate to the subject of water. In this day and age when water is quickly becoming a commodity that is fought over this video exhibition will help the visitor understand the changing nature of its use through the eyes of artists from around the world. This will be followed by the reintroduction of the long-awaited Exhibition 280 which will include contemporary works from artists in West Virginia and from the neighboring states of Kentucky Maryland Ohio Pennsylvania and Virginia. This juried exhibition includes nearly every kind of media and will certainly provide viewers with something that will inspire them. Later this autumn an exhibition documenting 25 years of collecting by the Fitzpatrick Society will open. For those unfamiliar with their work members of the Society provide funds for the acquisition of new artworks for the museum collection. Our devoted volunteer Don Harper left an endowment for the Society so that in the future they could acquire even more important works for the collection. This exhibition will showcase their achievements over the past two and a half decades. The end of the year will be rounded out by an exhibit of the work of William Brouillard and a small exhibit of works selected by trustees. Be on the watch for our Halloween-themed tour Harry Potter and the Permanent Collection which takes place on October 27. The ever-popular Holiday Open House which this year is presented by Camden Park will take place on December 6 and will include a performance by the Huntington Dance Theatre among others. I look forward to meeting many of you as you join us at these wonderful exhibits and programs. Geoffrey K.

Throughout the history of the Huntington Museum of Art one of its most important roles has been providing a venue for regional artists. Exhibition 280 is a regional juried exhibition presented by the Huntington Museum of Art in altered versions since 1953 one year after the founding of the institution. Originally the radius for eligibility was small reaching out to artists living in an 80-mile radius of Huntington. Later the boundaries were widened to 180 miles then 280. Now all artists who are 18 years of age or older who reside in West Virginia and her contiguous neighbor states Virginia Kentucky Ohio Pennsylvania and Maryland may participate. We are pleased to work with Patterson Sims our juror for this years competition.

Museum purchase award from Exhibition 280 2007.9. 5 The Fitzpatrick Society 25 Years of Gifts to the Collection The Huntington Museum of Art owes its existence to the generosity of Herbert Fitzpatrick a local attorney who had a strong desire to enrich the cultural life of his adopted hometown. His gifts of 52 acres and an extensive collection of artwork provided the foundation for the effort to establish the Huntington Galleries which opened in 1952. It was thus very appropriate that an organization that was created in 1989 to help foster the growth of the museums art collection was named the Fitzpatrick Society. The Society enlists the help of interested art lovers who pay membership dues to belong to the group. The dues are then used to purchase additional artworks for the collection. A number of potential purchases are displayed at the Societys annual meeting and members are allowed to cast a vote to pick their favorite work. The leading vote-getter is then purchased by the museum and added to the collection. Depending on available revenue some years have seen multiple items acquired through Society funds. The Fitzpatrick Society received a substantial boost in its ability to purchase works of art when it became the beneficiary of a bequest from the estate of longtime docent and museum supporter Don Harper. Mr. Harper a Huntington native enjoyed a lengthy career in government service in Washington D.C. Following his retirement he returned to live in his hometown and became a dedicated volunteer at the museum. The bequest that followed his passing in 2003 specified that a large portion of the funds from his estate should be used as an endowment to benefit the activities of the Fitzpatrick Society. In addition to its primary focus upon enriching the museums art collection the Donald B. Harper Endowment also supports scholarly and educational initiatives at the Museum including publishing and docent education and enrichment. Since its first purchases were made in 1990 more than 30 works have been added to the museum collection through the efforts of the Society. These works mirror the diverse nature of the HMA collection and include everything from a centuries-old Inuit story board to contemporary works on paper old master prints photographs paintings and studio glass. Several of the acquisitions have aided the Museums attempts to collect representative works by visiting artists in the Walter Gropius Master Artist Series. For information on joining the Fitzpatrick Society please contact HMA Development Director Carol Bailey cbaileyhmoa.org. This program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History and the National Endowment for the Arts with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.

Harper Endowment 2010.8AB. 6 Two bronze pieces made while I was in graduate school contain the same references to nest and house as much of my sculptural clay work. I had never worked in bronze and was very interested in exploring it. What I found was the process of bronze casting shares many of the same aspects that I enjoy about working in clay. There are many steps in the process of making things in clay and I enjoy the fact that you have to be both diligent and patient. I also enjoy putting pieces and parts together. Working in bronze shares all of these qualities with many steps to the final piece. To create these particular bronze pieces I began with the building of the nest and house out of sticks. Then I made several investments or molds of the pieces including the legs. The investments were then placed into a kiln where the actual sticks were burned out leaving a void to be filled with bronze. Next bronze was then poured into the investment and allowed to cool. Once cool the bronze pieces were broken out of the investment and cleaned. I then welded the pieces and parts together to create the final forms. You can see how these multiple steps are very similar to the making firing glazing and firing again of clay pieces. The transition from clay to bronze as materials and processes was an easy and enjoyable one for me. Bronze also has the one quality that I love so much about clay. While both materials are very rigid once they are completed works they still reveal the fluidity and softness that they possessed during their making.

His high school did not offer art classes but he found a creative home in the school woodshop. This interest in woodworking led him to Stout State University in Menomonie WI where he recognized a love of functional pottery. After serving in the armed forces Brouillard returned to pursue post-baccalaureate studies at The University of Wisconsin Madison. In 1976 he earned an MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Shortly after Brouillard accepted an appointment as a resident craftsman at The Penland School of Crafts in Penland NC. There surrounded by great functional potters he perfected his skills made utilitarian stoneware and learned the business of being a studio potter. Brouillard joined the faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1980 where he has taught ceramics for the last 35 years. He also maintains a very active studio in an old Cleveland steel- making district a setting which provides continual inspiration. Brouillards work is represented in prestigious collections around the world including the Cleveland Museum of Art the Detroit Museum of Art and the Tokyo National Museum. He has also won numerous grants and awards such as an Excellence in Design Award from the American Craft Museum a McKnight Grant from the Northern Clay Center and the Schreckengost Award for Teaching from the Cleveland Institute of Art. About the Artists Work The functional ceramics of William Brouillard might be best described as uniformly eclectic. He is recognized for his vibrantly colored earthenware pottery executed in the 16th century Italian majolica tradition of enameled and decorated ceramics. While his process is rooted in traditional techniques his subject matter however is very contemporary. Brouillard sources his imagery from the old steel mills and industrial structures that shadow his Cleveland studio. The resulting vessels and platters thoughtfully incorporate elements of both traditional design and modern life. Workshop Description Standard dinnerware is designed and made as a service. Conventional services are made up of multiple place settings. There can be numerous parts to a place setting. The minimum number of parts is usually three with as many as thirty parts in some formal settings. In this workshop participants will explore non-traditional compositions of tableware that encompass variety in their design fabrication and surface. The workshop will begin with a collaborative design session then each student will present designs and prototypes for their Eclectic Table. Images of table-related works from historical and contemporary models will be shown as a reference. Using basic wheel techniques and slab construction participants will originate and fabricate place settings of dinnerware and table-related vessels using earthenware clay with majolica decoration as the basis for fabrication and surface. We will finish with greenware prototypes. Students are encouraged to come to the workshop with a statement of what you want your tableware to embody referencing historical or contemporary source materials in clay and any other research materials such as books websites music or food recipes that are related to your project research. Drawings to scale of at least two approaches to your project will be a starting point for discussion in the design session at the beginning of the workshop.

Image courtesy of the artist. About the Artist Abelardo Morell was born in Havana Cuba in 1948. In 1962 at the height of the Cold War he immigrated to the United States with his parents. Morell received his undergraduate degree in 1977 from Bowdoin College and an MFA from The Yale University School of Art in 1981. In 1997 he received an honorary degree from Bowdoin College. He has received a number of awards and grants including a Guggenheim fellowship in 1994 a Rappaport Prize in 2006 and he was the recipient of the International Center of Photographys Infinity Award inArt in 2011. His work has been collected and shown in many prestigious institutions including the Museum of Modern Art the Metropolitan Art Museum in New York The Chicago Art Institute The Boston Museum of Fine Art and more than 70 other museums in the United States and abroad. His publications include a photographic illustration of Alices Adventures in Wonderland 1998 by Dutton Childrens Books Camera Obscura 2004 by Bulfinch Press and a limited edition book by The Museum of Modern Art in New York of his clich verre images with a text by Oliver Sacks. He lives with his wife Lisa McElaney a filmmaker and his children Brady and Laura in Brookline Massachusetts. About the Artists Work Abelardo Morells images offer clever post-modern commentary on the nature of photography by referencing the mediums beginnings while simultaneously celebrating the ephemeral magic of light and shadow. He is best known for using a camera obscura an optical device that preceded photography and the photographic camera to create images that marry interior and exterior spaces in unexpected ways. Morrell also employs clich verre a technique of reproducing images in which a glass plate coated with collodion is etched and photographed against a black background and photograms pictures produced with photographic materials such as light-sensitive paper but without a camera in his work. 13 HMAs Studio Program Classes Workshops fall 2015 Basic Photographic Techniques Wednesdays September 2 - October 7 6 sessions 6-8 p.m. Instructor Larry Rees Studio 3 95 Members 120 Non-Members IntermediateAdvanced Photographic Techniques Thursdays September 3 - October 8 6 sessions Instructor Larry Rees 6-8 p.m. Studio 3 95 Members 120 Non-Members Creative Darkroom Techniques Thursdays October 15 - November 19 6 sessions Instructor Larry Rees 6-8 p.m. Studio 3 120 Members 145 Non-Members Figure Drawing Tuesdays September 29 - November 3 6 sessions 6-830 p.m. Instructor Katherine Cox Studio 1 180 Members 205 Non-Members Hand Building and Wheel Throwing for Adults Mondays September 14 - November 16 10 sessions 6-8 p.m. Instructor Kathleen Kneafsey Studio 4 180 Members 205 Non-Members First 25 lbs of clay is included in class price.Additional clay is 10 for 25 lbs.

It features tropical and subtropical plants that are warm-growing non-native plants. The plants in the collection fall into four general categories Orchids Agriculturally Important Fragrant and Unusual. In addition the conservatory functions as a mini- ecosystem where plants and animals live together to the benefit of one another. This mutually beneficial relationship is apparent in two of our three fish ponds which function without filtration. Due to the presence of a sculpture the Koi pond does contain a filtration system. The Museums 52-acre property includes more than 40 acres of hillside that is retained in its natural woodland state. This is where youll find our nature trail a well-marked maintained trail approximately one mile in length. The trail has a variety of inclines from nearly flat to gently sloping to steep. HMAs trail tour called a Walk in the Woods takes place spring through fall when the weather is comfortable and agreeable. HMAs Nature Docent program provides training on touring techniques as well as information about the flora and fauna within our wooded trails. In addition Nature Docents help to keep the trails in good shape for touring. Nature camp has taken place at HMA for decades. Campers enjoy walks on the trails learning tree identification and studying root formations among other things. A favorite activity is exploration in the creek. In addition campers enjoy time inside participating in studio activities. Learning how to use a microscope and dissecting owl pellets are just two of the really exciting indoor activities. Shown is a peaceful path in the C. Fred Edwards Conservatory at HMA. Students led by Nature Docent AJ Stovitz view the woodlands from the Othel Rogers Overlook on the nature trail. 17 This poison dart frog is popular with visitors.

The painting which is currently on view in the Herman Palmer Dean Firearms Collection gallery was created in the same year that Huntington was founded. Acquiring the Meeker painting is part of a goal by new HMA Executive Director Geoffrey K. Fleming to create a collection of artwork that either depicts West Virginia and its important River Valleys or that features artwork by West Virginia artists prior to 1940. This collection focusing on depictions of West Virginia and works by early West Virginia artists will help round out HMAs outstanding permanent art collection of more than 15000 works. This painting is an important work and I am happy to say that it has found a home at the Huntington Museum of Art Fleming said. I believe there are many quality works depicting West Virginia or created by West Virginia artists that are affordable and could become part of HMAs permanent collection if funding can be found for this purpose. Fleming noted the Museum is seeking the donation of works that meet the above criteria to also help build this collection. There are few things more enriching than to be able to visit a museum and view artworks that depict the place in which we were raised and live he continued. Meeker was born in Auburn New York in 1827. He moved to New York City in 1845 to study at the National Academy of Design. His first art studio was established four years later in Buffalo New York. Meeker lived in Louisville Ky. for most of the 1850s before relocating to St. Louis. Meekers time in the U.S. Navy during the Civil War gave him the opportunity to study American waterways. Although he was a portrait artist earlier in his career Meeker would later focus on landscapes that included important American waterways. Meeker died in 1887. During his lifetime Meekers work was shown at the American Art-Union the Boston Art Club National Academy of Design and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Meekers artwork will join the permanent collection of the Huntington Museum of Art but it can also be found in the collections of the University of Kentucky Lexington Brooklyn Museum New York the Saint Louis Art Museum and Washington University Gallery of Art among others.
