11/14/2019 - Linda Blair Lectures on Jan Van Eyck
Athenaeum Music & Arts Library welcomes back art historian Linda Blair with a new lecture series, Dreams and Enchantment: Jan van Eyck.

The three-part Thursday evening lecture series is designed to transport us to an otherworldly realm of noble knights and dreaming ladies, caparisoned steeds, and fairy-tale castle--all our reveries of the Arthurian knightly dream--in short, to 15th century Burgundy and the last glow of late medieval art.

November 7: Van Eyck as Influencer
How could Jan van Eyck possibly relate to Leonardo? The insights and inventions that made his genius possible were born not in Renaissance Italy, but far away, beyond the Alps in Northern Europe, in small, patrician Bruges, center of the dukes of Burgundy and their court painter, Jan van Eyck. We will plumb Van Eyck's discoveries to look afresh at Leonardo's art.

November 14: Burgundy, Chivalrous Ideals, and Van Eyck's Paintings
Burgundy, a tiny sliver of land, politically powerless but made persuasive as one of the most romantic, poetic, and refined of all the European courts, was so elegant it was slavishly emulated across Europe. It elevated the ideals of knightly cultur--art, architecture, costuming, pageantry, tournaments, courtly ritual--captured in Van Eyck's luminous paintings.

11/01/2019 - Maki Ishiwata Exhibition Opening Reception
JFG is proud to present an exhibition of Japanese fiber artist Maki Ishiwata from the Chiba prefecture. After receiving her BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute in California, Ishiwata worked as an art instructor at the local elementary and middle school for 14 years. During Ishiwata's 25 years in America, her potential in various creative fields grew. Since returning to Japan in 2007, and under the influence of her mother who worked with the lore of the traditional Japanese handmade paper (washi), Ishiwata became deeply charmed by its beauty and started to create original "plant figures" using washi. Development of the technique with paper strings and ligature became her characteristic style.

Pre-sale opening reception admission includes JFG entrance fee.

Admission/Cost: $5

11/02/2019 - Sacred Object/Sacred Wisdom Exhibit Opening
Sacred Objects: Sacred Wisdom showcases seventy five objects from more than a dozen tribes across eight countries in West Central and Southern Africa. Just as spirit entities can speak through a diviner, they can also communicate through designated inanimate objects. The range and breadth of the pieces in the exhibit-made primarily of wood, beads, bronze, and iron-attest to their importance in daily living and the diversity of the divination process. From hakata (dice) and oracles to divination trays, spirit figures, and abodes for ancestral spirits, the objects are the vehicles through which insight, interpretation, and mediation flow. Divination encompasses some of the most important aspects of daily life. When divination is carried out, the diviner relies heavily on the aesthetics of an object to bring about changes in fortune, improved health, conflict resolution, etc. This is form and function taken to a higher level; an object's design is often the reflection of a shared effort between artists and ritual practitioners. The result is nothing short of spectacular. Sadly, the sacred wisdom, among the younger generations, is not being maintained. The opening reception will include a short presentation, light refreshments..
