Susan Barnett: Thought Patterns

July 7 - September 16, 2007

Susan Barnett was a second year Masters of Fine Arts student at the Meadows School of Arts. Her paintings on display in the Hawn Gallery explored systems of the mind.  Initially this body of work originated with paintings based upon a specialized type of Latin Square popularized by the Sudoku puzzle. The properties of a Latin Square result in a balanced repetition of all the elements, numbers which she translated into symbols.


Printing in Color


October 1, 2007 - December 16, 2007

In the fall of 2007, Hawn gallery visitors were treated to a special exhibit designed to support the Meadows Art History Curriculum. The gallery was set up to display original color prints from the Bywaters Special Collection along side the original carved blocks or matrices used to create them. The students of ARHS 3364: History and Theory of Prints had assignments coordinated to the exhibit which highlighted some of the techniques and developments of this art form. The featured prints were selected by Dr. Lisa Pon with the assistance of Sam Ratcliffe and Ellen Niewyk, curators of the Bywaters collection.

The Art of the Caricature: Prints from Vanity Fair, 1869 – 1900


February 13 - April 26, 2007

Vanity Fair was first published by its founding editor, Thomas Gibson Bowles, on November 7, 1868. Bowles took its title at the suggestion of a friend, Colonel Fred Burnaby, from John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress and perhaps from William Makepeace Thackeray’s novel of the same name. He was a privileged, well-connected man, and his ambition for Vanity Fair was the desire to establish a periodical defining the social and cultural life of London in Victorian England. The caricatures came about within a few months of the initial publication and, as a particularly popular feature of the magazine, they were reprinted annually as albums.
