In the Wake of the Butterfly/Reflection­s and Undercurrents-Fairfi­eld University

On view concurrently at Fairfield University, please join us for two opening receptions, lets start at the Bellarmine Gallery at 6:00. Details listed below.


In the Wake of the Butterfly: James Abbott McNeill Whistler and His Circle in Venice

Bellarmine Gallery
200 Barlow Road


January 23 - April 4, 2014

As a mature artist, the great American expatriate James Abbott McNeill Whistler [masked]) began using a stylized butterfly in place of a signature to maximize his work’s aesthetic qualities. Whistler’s concern with an immersive visual experience is highlighted in this focus show, which features works on paper from his Venetian series together with related images by Frank Duveneck [masked]), Otto Henry Bacher [masked]), Mortimer Luddington Menpes [masked]), Joseph Pennell [masked]), and Clifford Isaac Addams [masked]). This exhibition complements Reflections and Undercurrents: Ernest Roth and Printmaking in Venice,[masked], on view concurrently at the Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery.

Reflections and Undercurrents: Ernest Roth and Printmaking in Venice,[masked]

Walsh Gallery at the Quick Center


January 23 - April 4, 2014
Reflections & Undercurrents features prints by the German-born American painter and etcher Ernest Roth [masked]) and his contemporaries, including John Taylor Arms [masked]) and Joseph Pennell [masked]), exploring the connections between the art they made in early 20th-century Venice. The exhibition includes over ninety works and embraces a range of media, including etchings, drawings, sketchbooks, and photographs as well as Roth's original print making tools. Organized by Dr. Eric Denker (Senior Lecturer, National Gallery of Art) and Dr. Philip Earenfight (Director, Trout Gallery, Dickinson College), this show complements In the Wake of the Butterfly: Whistler and His Circle in Venice, on view concurrently at the Bellarmine Museum of Art.
