“Thompkins’ relaxed virtuosity, suave legato, variety of attacks, and vibrant sound, rich and full from the basement to the balcony of his instrument, were all wonders. Of course the trombone is hard to play; the trick is to make it look easy. Thompkins does.” —Mark Stryker, Detroit Free Press “DSO principal trombonist Ken Thompkins was an exceptional soloist, playing with a buttery sound and liquid legato that connected the widest melodies into arcs of lyricism. He then played the darting rhythms so gracefully it called up the ghost of the late jazz trombonist J.J. Johnson.” —Mark Stryker, Detroit Free Press

Sept. 10, 8 p.m.

The Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries Fall

2012

Jon Michael Turner, Prayer Boots

Jon Michael Turner, Purple Heart

Eli Wright, Open Wound

4509 Monarch Way at 45th Street (757) 683-6271 Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. Experience outstanding works of contemporary and self-taught art in the intimate state-of-the-art Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries located in University Village. Special exhibitions and frequent changes in display of the permanent collection mean that there’s always something new on every visit to the galleries.

Continuing through Sept. 9

Issues of Style in Self-taught Art Examining works from a variety of artists in the collection, the exhibition focuses on a concept that traditionally organizes our thoughts on art. Self-taught art employs many diverse characteristics of expression related to issues of style. Artists such as Phillip Travers and Melissa Polhamus use space in specific ways in their compositions. Polhamus densely populates the picture plane, filling it with images that appear to present sequential events. Travers fills the picture plane but also plays with scale, ambiguous space and text to create cartoon-like narratives reminiscent of story boards. By examining these common characteristics that define a style, we obtain new insight into their work.

July 7 – Sept. 9

The Combat Paper Project This exhibition features selected work from the Combat Paper Project. The project utilizes art-making workshops to assist veterans in reconciling and sharing their personal experiences as well as broadening the traditional narrative surrounding service and the military culture. Through papermaking workshops, veterans use their uniforms worn in combat to create cathartic works of art. The uniforms are cut up, beaten into a pulp and formed into sheets of paper. Veterans use the transformative process of papermaking to reclaim their uniform as art and begin to embrace their experiences in the military.

Annie Blandings, Barn Lewis Smith, Three Women

Karolina Karlic, The Dee Series

Greta Pratt, The Wavers Series

Sept. 15 – Feb. 10, 2013

Woman, Image and Art The majority of known, collected and discussed self-taught artists are men. Images of women in culture often express artists’ idealization, ambivalence or wariness – a force to be controlled. The woman may be seen as a seductress leading men to sin and ruin. These complicated roles ascribed to women defy easy explanation. Lewis Smith’s “Three Women” are circus performers demonstrating their skill and strength. Their costumes are form-fitting and seductive. Though strong, they must be feminine and alluring, never masculine or dominating. In contrast, Annie Blandings’ “Barn” portrays couples dancing, rapt in each other. The woman is an adored partner that holds the family together. The drawing itself is pure and ethereal. Opening Reception: Sunday, Sept. 30, 3 – 5 p.m.

Sept. 15 – Oct. 14

Photographs With Teeth

in conjunction with the 35th Annual Literary Festival, “Words With Teeth” Poet Sean Thomas Dougherty said, “How can we wake up if the words don’t bite us—hard — sometimes?” The same is true for photographs. “Photographs With Teeth” brings together works by Yunghi Kim, Cori Pepelnjak, Karolina Karlic and Greta Pratt. These internationally recognized photographers explore the working class, the 99 percent, socioeconomic inequity and the costuming of patriotism. Kim’s photographs of the Occupy Wall Street movement garnered a World Press Award and Pepelnjak’s series “By the Week” documents individuals who live in motels by the week. “The Dee” (slang for Detroit) series, by Guggenheim fellow Karlic, uses vacant automobile factories and single-family homes stalled in construction standing silently as metaphors for economic crisis and its effect on a community. Pratt’s “Liberty Wavers” brings together the issues of labor and the rhetoric of patriotism. Taking place on the eve of the Presidential election, this exhibition creates a timely conversation about contemporary America. Opening Reception: Sunday, Sept. 30, 3 – 5 p.m.

Ralph Slatton, Goya’s Rabbits

Barbara Duval, untitled

Oct. 19 – Nov. 25

East/West: A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking “East/West: A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking” reflects and celebrates the diversity of printmaking practice and education in the United States. Organizers asked 100 of the most prominent printmakers/educators to embrace their current image-making techniques and conceptual concerns. The result is a portfolio of prints that are diverse in image. These artists embrace tradition as well as alternatives in printmaking techniques found in lithography, intaglio, woodcut, silkscreen, archival pigment, hybrid, intaglio types, and photo-relief prints. The artists were chosen based on their distinguished careers as both artists and teachers. They practice the art of printmaking derived from the tradition of “the artist/teacher in residence” as developed by many major Midwest universities in the 1960s. This portfolio celebrates these artists as innovators, for their continued development of the printmaking medium and their own unique artistic visions. These printmakers have had and continue to have dramatic impacts on printmaking education, their institutions and printmaking workshops. Opening Reception: Friday, Oct. 19, 7 – 9 p.m.

Dec. 1 – 16

Fall Senior Show Opening reception to be announced Selected by a committee of faculty members, graduating students will be awarded an exhibition of their work before graduation.

Words with TEETH

35th Annual

Literary Festival

Sept. 30 – Oct. 5, 2012

G

iven the complexities of being human—the inward skirmishes with self and the more visible conflicts with the world we inhabit—it is easy to think of one’s own odd sensibility as rooted in some kind of perverse misunderstanding. This can result in a life defined by an apologetic silence. We turn to literature for three things: clarification, affirmation and courage. The authors who dare to challenge the given script, who ask vital questions and make bold assertions, give us a new chance to live, an opportunity to revise ourselves.

Their words are not simply entertaining; their words have teeth. Through precise utterance and expansive imagination, their words give us the means to cut through the filmy stupor that pervades our daily lives. It is a literature that nudges, maybe knocks us, from complacency. It seems that this power marks the best of literary endeavor.

The writers and artists of Old Dominion University’s 35th Annual Literary Festival, through fiction, poetry, memoir, visual media, music and essay, will offer an opportunity for a more electric wakefulness. Poet Sean Thomas Dougherty has said, “How can we wake up if the words don’t bite us—hard—sometimes?” We hope this year’s lineup of world-renowned authors and artists will offer a refreshing sense of what words and other forms of expression can do. John McManus and Tim Seibles 2012 Festival Directors
