Another Look -- The Eye Learns Opening

Thursday, 3/25/2021
9:00AM-9:00PM  
On View March 25th - August 1st, 2021

In 1992, Louis de. K Belden (1926-2017) came to the realization if he wanted to continue collecting art, he would need a stronger focus to become a true collector. He shared his internal conversation with himself, “Look, if you are going to do this, you have to do it with a purpose, not just go around buying anything you see but to have boundaries, and my boundaries became prints - American and European, which dated from 1965 on.” His three criteria – medium, geographic region and period of time—framed the boundaries Belden placed on his practice of collecting, offering a boundless range of expression, experimentation and expansion of the terrain of postwar modernism.

This new exhibition of work from Belden’s collection reads like a who’s who of modernist and postmodernist prints and includes work by Judy Chicago, Richard Diebenkorn, Sonia Delaunay, Helen Frankenthaler, David Hockney, Howard Hodgkin, Robert Mangold, Kasimir Malevich, Robert Rauschenberg, and Frank Stella, among others.

Live@CAM: Emily Burdette

Thursday, 3/25/2021
6:00PM-8:00PM  
Emily Burdette grew up in the small town of St. Albans, West Virginia. She began exploring music at a young age. Her mother and father always had music on in the house and encouraged listening to a wide range of artists such as The Beatles, Madonna, The Beach Boys, Elton John, & Linda Ronstadt. She began writing lyrics when she was fourteen years old. After having tried piano lessons and deciding that wasn’t for her, she picked up the guitar.

While attending Belmont University in 2002 in Nashville, Tennessee, Emily decided she truly wanted to pursue a career in singing and songwriting. Her style emulates her influences including Jewel, Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, and Sheryl Crow. She has a singer/songwriter style that invokes sounds of both pop and folk music.

Our Place in This World: Frederic Edwin Church

Sunday, 3/28/2021
2:30PM-3:30PM  
Virtual class- Our Place in This World: American Landscape Artists- Frederic Edwin Church with instructor Luc Travers
The goal of this series is to immerse ourselves into the worlds created by these artists, sensually, emotionally, and intellectually. We'll learn techniques for getting the most out of enjoying landscape paintings (including the use of music to enhance the mood of the landscape). We'll look deeply into each artist's world and examine what they had to say about our relationship with nature and our relationship with the universe. And we'll explore how the ideas in their landscapes reflected their personal lives and philosophies.
