Lecture: Tapping History External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Presented by Harry Warren and Brian van Eerden. Tar, pitch, turpentine, and rosin - known collectively as naval stores - were as important in the era of wooden sailing ships as petroleum is today. The South once dominated the naval stores industry, which tapped vast longleaf forests for resin and ultimately decimated them. Uncover the history of our region's naval stores and ghost forests with Harry Warren and Brian van Eerden. Learn the myths behind the term "Tar Heel." Discover how conservationists are bringing back the majestic longleaf as part of Virginia's heritage and our resilient future.
FREE for Members; $5 for guests

2019 SAVE THIS DATE for the Ice Harvest Festival External Event Page
East Meredith, New York
The Region’s Coolest Tradition: held each year on the first Saturday in February. Come enjoy a day of hands-on history and winter fun. Ice harvests were once an essential part of winter in rural communities. Before there was refrigeration, ice was needed to preserve agricultural products and to keep food cold in the warmer months. Each year on the first Saturday of February, Hanford Mills Museum celebrates this rural tradition with the Ice Harvest Festival. Using historic tools and techniques, visitors can cut and maneuver blocks of ice from the Mill Pond, and then transport the blocks to the ice house by sled. The Ice Harvest Festival also features ice sculpting and ice fishing, a hot soup buffet, bonfires, and exhibits by local farmers and businesses.

Trees, Paper, Styx - Art Reception External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Linda Colnett's art has long been inspired by nature, and in particular trees. A recurring theme in her work involves the paradox of the many benefits humans derive from trees - oxygen, shelter, food, clothing, medicines, fuel and other materials - versus the devastating impact of deforestation around the world. The process is often an evolution from photographs to paintings, paintings to prints or to mixed media and sculpture. This series is a tribute to the products that are derived from trees, as in wood panels, wooden dowels, and paper. ///// January 29–February 23, 2019 exhibition dates

SOUTHBOUND: PHOTOGRAPHS OF AND ABOUT THE NEW SOUTH External Event Page
Charleston, South Carolina
Southbound embraces the conundrum of its name. To be southbound is to journey to a place in flux, radically transformed over recent decades, yet also to the place where the past resonates most insistently in the United States. To be southbound is also to confront the weight of preconceived notions about this place, thick with stereotypes, encoded in the artistic, literary, and media records. Southbound engages with and unsettles assumed narratives about this contested region by providing fresh perspectives for understanding the complex admixture of history, geography, and culture that constitutes today’s New South. Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South is an unprecedented photography exhibition co-curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, and Mark Long, professor of political science, both of whom are on the faculty of the College of Charleston, in South Carolina. Southbound is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. The exhibition will debut simultaneously at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the City Gallery at Waterfront Park.

The Sausalito Renaissance and the birth of Mid-Century Modern in Sausalito - Art Exhibition External Event Page
Sausalito, California
The Artists, Poets, and Impresarios of the Late 1940's in Sausalito. //// When World War II ended in 1945, men and women who had fought to overcome tyranny abroad came home and sought to create lives with renewed purpose. The upheaval that changed the sleepy town of Sausalito to an industrial factory for the war effort was winding down. Aspiring artists, writers and musicians began returning home and enrolled in schools like the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Academy of Art) to study and enter their chosen vocations. Sausalito was primed to host this post-war "avant garde" and play a key role in influencing the San Francisco Renaissance. Sausalito was about to have its own artistic Renaissance. This collection from the Sausalito Historical Society displays Sausaltio's own Renaissance.

The Neoclassical Gaze: Myth and Reality of Ancient Sculpture  External Event Page
Waco, Texas
The Martin Museum of Art at Baylor University is pleased to announce the opening of our 2019 exhibition year with The Neoclassical Gaze: Myth and Reality of Ancient Sculpture from January 22 through March 8, 2019. This exhibition features Wilhelm Gottlieb Becker’s Augusteum (1804-1811), a three-volume publication of engravings illustrating ancient Greek and Roman sculpture. These engravings will be displayed alongside plaster cast reproductions of ancient sculpture on loan from the Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin. These compelling works will be examined from the perspectives of both the ancient world, as well as that of the Neoclassical Revival at the turn of the nineteenth century, as presented by guest curators, Baylor Art Historians, Dr. Sean DeLouche and Dr. Nathan Elkins. The Augusteum is a grand publication dedicated to the ancient sculpture collected by Augustus II, the Prince Elector of Saxony, in Dresden, Germany, during the mid-eighteenth century. Published in German and French editions from 1804 to 1811, and again in 1837, the books, Augusteum, Dresdens antike Denkmäler enthaltend and Augusteum, ou Description des Monumens Antiques qui se trouvent à Dresde, include elaborate textual descriptions of the sculptures accompanied by 154 intricate engravings. Most of the illustrations depict sculptural figures from both front and back views. Beginning in 1723, Augustus II established the “Collection of Antique and Modern Sculptures” as part of his larger campaign to transform Dresden into a center for art and architecture in Germany. Many of the works he acquired came from the Chigi and Albani collections of Italy, whose antiquities originated predominantly from excavations in Rome and surrounding archeological sites. The Dresden Collection, currently housed in the historic Albertinum Museum in Dresden, is one of the oldest collections of ancient sculpture found outside Italy.

California Association of Museums 2019 Conference External Event Page
San Francisco, California
Venue: Hilton PARC 55
Changing the Narrative: People and communities use narrative–stories built around core values–to understand the world and their place in it. As narratives become more inclusive and encompass a broader range of perspectives, museums are looking for ways to deliver these new stories to provide a narrative that represents as many voices as possible. Museums are working to change the narrative around their collections in order to fulfill their responsibility to better serve the public. The 2019 CAM conference will take place at the Parc 55 hotel in downtown San Francisco. The hotel is adjacent to the Powell St. BART station and within walking distance to 11 museums. Many conference activities will take place at the hotel’s 4th floor meeting space. There are also abundant public transit options to points throughout the SF Bay Area via MUNI and BART near the hotel.
