Art Exhibit: Scenic Impressions: Southern Interpretations from the Johnson Collection, Richardson Family Art Museum, upper level (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))

Scenic Impressions: Southern Interpretations from the Johnson Collection showcases forty-one artists—both native Southerners who recorded their own region and distant places, and others who were transitory visitors or seasonal residents. The result is a varied assortment of individual approaches, and, in the words of the popular American Impressionist Childe Hassam, “some things that are charming.Many of the painters on viewembraced the central tenets of Impressionism: light-filled natural settings loosely painted in high-key colors with visible brushstrokes; fluidity of form; and an emphasis on atmospheric transience. A “scenic impression” is the evocation of something seen, rather than its literal transcription. In terms of subject matter, it is most frequently a landscape, but it can also extend to a figurative composition set outdoors. The artist’s experience—his or her impression of the scene at hand—is paramount. The earliest paintings in the exhibition date from the 1880s and illustrate a Barbizon-inspired aesthetic consisting of dark tones and simple landscapes. Other works postdate Impressionism and display greater concern for expression and form, along with an awareness of the picture plane.

Exhibit: Japanese Art of the Edo and Meiji Eras, Richardson Family Art Museum, lower level (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))

Japanese Art of the Edo and Meiji Eras (1603-1912) displays a variety of cultural expressions of Japan, including tea ceremony implements, woodblock prints, porcelains, and ink paintings.  The Edo Period (1603-1868), named after the Shogun capital, is one of the most prosperous and thriving in the history of Japanese art.  The political stability established by the Tokugawa family prompted an increase in artistic, cultural and social development, with flourishing and distinctive aesthetics represented in paintings, ceramics, woodblock prints and decorative arts.  The Meiji Period (1868-1912), an era of radical social and political change from feudalism to modernity and adopted Western influences, witnessed a blending of cultures and an innovative interchange of old ideas and new in Japanese art.  This exhibition intends to further enhance scholarly research for students in ARTH 322 Art of Japan, and several of the labels in this exhibition will be written by students. Featured works are loaned from the Shiro Kuma Collection of Edwin and Rhena Symmes in Atlanta, GA, from the Edmund Daniel Kinzinger (1888-1963) Collection of Japanese Prints loaned by David and Barbara Goist in Asheville, NC, and from the collection of Dr. and Mrs. Hunter Stokes ('60) in Florence, SC.

Wofford Theatre presents: The Danube, Jerome Johnson Richardson Theatre (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: Join us this fall in the Jerome Johnson Richardson Theatre as Wofford Theatre presents The Danube, a stirring drama by Obie Award-winning avant garde playwright Maria Irene Fornes.

Directed by Dan Day, The Danube is set in 1930s Budapest, where a young American businessman, Paul Green, meets a Hungarian bureaucrat and his daughter, Eve. Paul and Eve fall in love, but they soon face a dark threat when a mysterious sickness infects them as it spreads throughout the whole city -- and possibly the world.

Longtime Village Voice theatre critic Michael Feingold called The Danube "One of the most startlingly original and devastating things I can ever remember seeing on a stage."

The play runs Nov. 8-10 and 14-17, at 8 PM each night.

Student tickets are $5, faculty tickets are $12, and tickets for the general public are $15. Purchase in advance at or on the Wofford Theatre Facebook page to take advantage of our special online discount!

Seating will be limited and by general admission only, so be sure to arrive early to claim a great seat! Unclaimed tickets will be released to the public five minutes before showtime, and no admission will be permitted after the performance begins.
