Hello. Thanks for coming. Why don’t you take a seat? I have something to tell you. It’s important. It’s going to be hard to put it into words, but I’m going to do my best. Please keep an open mind. Don’t be scared, it’s nothing bad. It’s just... important.

"I'm Trying to Tell You Something Important" utilizes the gestural composing language of Soundpainting to combine acting, music, movement, and storytelling to create a spontaneous, ensemble-based improvised performance about how hard it can be to say what we feel.

Late Night at the Lehman Loeb: Exhibition opening reception for "Tim Youd: The Hudson Valley Retyped"

When: Thursday, September 13, 2018, 5:00-9:00pm

Where: Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

Enjoy extended gallery hours in an enlivened atmosphere with creative happenings every week. This week beginning at 5:30pm we celebrate the Focus Gallery exhibition, Tim Youd: The Hudson Valley Retyped. 

At Vassar College in April and May 2018, performance artist Tim Youd retyped The Group by distinguished novelist, essayist, and critic Mary McCarthy (Vassar College, class of 1933). This performance was the 56th novel to be typed in his 100 Novels Project  and is one of several that Youd is undertaking in the Hudson Valley during spring and summer 2018. The culmination of these performances will be an exhibition in the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Focus Gallery titled Tim Youd: The Hudson Valley Retyped. The exhibition, which will run from August 30 through October 14, 2018, will include a diptych of each novel typed over the summer as well as related drawings and a Remington No. 2, the model typewriter used by Mary McCarthy to type The Group.

Employing the same make and model typewriter used by the author, Youd types each novel on a single sheet of paper, which is backed by an additional support sheet. The artist loads the two-ply paper through the typewriter repeatedly, until the entire novel has been retyped. As the typing progresses, the top sheet becomes saturated with ink and perforated from overuse, while the sheet underneath becomes embossed from indentation. Upon completion, the two pages are separated and mounted side by side as a framed diptych, recalling two pages of an open book with the words obscured. The diptych remains as a relic of the performance that embodies the novel, even though it is completely illegible. During the opening reception Youd will type poems by Elizabeth Bishop (Vassar College, class of 1934).

Exhibition Opening Lecture and Reception: Past Time: Geology in European and American Art

When: Friday, September 21, 2018, 5:30pm

Where: Taylor Hall 102 & Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

Rebecca Bedell, Associate Professor of Art, Wellesley College, will present the opening lecture for Past Time: Geology in European and American Art, an interdisciplinary exhibition that weaves and blends the distinctive interests of art and science. Much of Rebecca Bedell’s research and scholarly writing has focused on the relationship between art and science. Her first book, The Anatomy of Nature: Geology and American Landscape Painting, 1825–1875 (Princeton, 2001), explored the ways that a number of prominent landscape artists, including Frederic Church and Thomas Moran, were engaged with the then fashionable science of geology. She also was part of the team that produced the international exhibition Endless Forms: Charles Darwin, Natural Science, and the Visual Arts (Yale, 2009). After the lecture, a reception and exhibition viewing will follow in the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center.
