An Evening with Judith Brodsky on Sept. 30
Judith Brodsky in the Benton Spruance Art Center drawing studio in the mid-70s.
In celebration of its 30th anniversary in the Benton Spruance Art Center, Arcadia University Art Gallery invites you to an evening with artist, printmaker, and arts advocate Judith K. Brodsky.
Brodsky is a Distinguished Professor Emerita in the Department of Visual Arts at Rutgers and Founding Director of the Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper (renamed the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions in her honor in September 2006). She is also a founding director of the Rutgers University Institute for Women and Art and currently Chair of the Board of the New York Foundation for the Arts.
Brodsky’s lecture will take place on September 30, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the Great Room of the Commons and will be followed by a reception. Her talk coincides with two exhibitions. The first, on view at the Arcadia University Art Gallery through October 18, is “Threading the Maze,” which includes work by Lee Krasner, Faith Ringgold, Elizabeth Murray, and Miriam Schapiro, all of whom presented solo exhibitions at Beaver College between 1974 and 1984.
The second, on view in the Great Room Lobby Gallery through October 4, is “The Richard E. Fuller Art Gallery (1962-1985): A History of Arcadia University’s First Exhibition Space.” Featuring archival images and published materials, it chronicles the evolution of the gallery, then located in the campus library, up to its relocation to the Benton Spruance Art Center in 1985.
Before her distinguished tenure at Rutgers University, Brodsky was a professor of art at Beaver College from 1972 until 1978, and was integral to the development of the school’s exhibition program. In addition to authoring its first successful grant proposals, she and Jack Davis, chair of the art department, organized the first solo exhibitions in the Philadelphia region for many of the artists presented in “Threading the Maze.”
Her talk will include reflections on this period as well as the impact these artists had on the art world of that era.
The lecture and reception are free and open to the public.
