RICHMOND, VA.- The Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art will present Four Seasons: A Print Series by Jennifer Bartlett, on view August 23, 2007 to September 16, 2007. Contemporary painter, printmaker, and sculptor, Jennifer Bartlett (American, born 1941) combines design, pattern, and familiar imagery, while employing as many as 79 colors of ink and screens to make complex images of the four seasons, a time-honored theme in art. This series of screenprints, created between 1990 and 1993, features the weather, flora, fauna, esoteric objects, and even a skeleton to denote each season.
Jennifer Bartlett received her M.F.A. from Yale University in 1965, and has since been very active in both New York and California. Throughout her career, Bartletts work has been dominated by the continued use of systems and grid patterns, which provide a means of exploring lively chaos to themes of variation and repetition. Bartletts work is represented in major museum collections internationally. Four Seasons: A Print Series by Jennifer Bartlett will be on view through July 13, 2008.
The Annual Student Exhibition highlights works selected by the studio art faculty of the University of Richmonds Department of Art and Art History. This exhibition features artwork by studio art majors and minors along with non-majors enrolled during the Universitys 2006-2007 academic year. The Annual Student Exhibition was organized by the University of Richmond Museums and will be on view August 23 to September 16, 2007.
