Opening Reception is Sept. 5
Valparaiso University’s Brauer Museum of Art continues to grow its permanent collection with major acquisitions from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. These, along with prints, sculptures, paintings and other works from artists from around the world comprise an exciting 2014-2015 season, which kicks off with an opening reception Sept 5.
The fall exhibitions run through Dec. 14, with selections from the permanent collection on display in the Sloan Gallery. In the Wehling and McGill Galleries, “Orange Meditations: Recent Sculpture by Herbert George” features technically exquisite and formally inventive stone sculptures that reflect the artist’s ongoing interest in themes of justice and humanity.
Andrew Nunemaker ’91, an influential entrepreneur and philanthropist who serves on Valpo’s Board of Directors, has assembled a remarkable collection that demonstrates his interest in both the diverse approaches of the contemporary scene and the Modern masters. The West Gallery features selections from this impressive collection.
In the Ferguson Gallery, “From 2/11 to Today: Recent Work by Ted Halkin” showcases new paintings and works on paper by legendary Chicago artist Ted Halkin that explore gesture and surface.
The final fall exhibition, “Uniforms, Outfits, and Accessories: Photographs by Joel DeGrand,” highlights the Northwest Indiana photographer’s insights and masterful handling of his medium in the Education Room and Gallery 1212.
