Readings of Rembrandt

by Rebecca Tucker and Tip Ragan

Rembrandt Van Rijn’s fame as a painter was exceeded in his own lifetime by his renown as a master etcher. In an age and a culture dominated by the intellect, Rembrandt’s patrons treasured his ability to communicate the profoundly spiritual beauty of the earthbound and the tangible. He is greatly esteemed today for his sensitivity to the psychology of the common man. This deeply felt empathy is embodied in the thirty-five etchings that comprise this exhibition from the permanent collection of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. Through a range of subjects—self-portraits, landscapes, depictions of Biblical stories and everyday life—Rembrandt captured the essence of mankind’s sense of the spiritual and personal, all portrayed within the context of the dynamic, contemporary society of seventeenth-century Holland.

Unique to America, reader board signs dot sidewalks, highways and roadsides all over America and reveal an authentic, quirky, funny, individual and very real America – one untouched by corporate promotion and ubiquitous blandness. But it might all be disappearing as the digital sign takes over.

A photographic exhibition by ANDREW MANLEY, Associate Professor in Theatre & Dance, who has been hunting reader boards for 20 years marveling, as only a foreigner from England can, at their unsung barmy brilliance.

Reception and Artist Talk

 

Emma Powell (Assistant Professor of Art) introduces her photography to Colorado College with this one-person exhibition. Powerfully interested in the history of photography, Powell incorporates historic processes and devices into her contemporary practice. Past projects have included archaic technologies such as wet plate collodion process and old Kodak cameras. Her recent work navigates the fine line between reality and fantasy, using self-portraiture to articulate personal narratives. Using a cyanotype process, Powell creates a backdrop in which archetypal universal symbols combine and collide.
