On loan from a private collector for a May 28 – August 20 Main Gallery exhibition, this extensive collection of prints traces the development of printmaking through one of the most influential periods of art from 1870 through 1914. Considered ground-breaking in their time, artists in the last decades of 19th century France developed radical new ways to paint and their experiments continued in the creation of their lithographs, etchings, drypoints and mezzotints.

FROM IMPRESSIONISM TO BELLE ÉPOQUE includes the work of master printmakers Edgar Chahine (1874-1947), Edgar Degas (1834-1917), Paul César Helleu (1859-1927), Edouard Manet (1832-1883), Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919), James Jacques Joseph Tissot (1836-1902) and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901).

Artist Bio


Anna Marie Pavlik was born in Pennsylvania. After many family moves Minnesota became home until relocating to Austin, Texas where she spent 25 years.  She now resides in Frankfort, Kentucky. Her college years were concentrated in Duluth, Minnesota, attending the St. Scholastica, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Wisconsin, Superior, resulting in a Bachelor in Fine Arts.  A Drafting Certificate from St. Paul Vocational School led to a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering during employment with Minnesota, Mining & Manufacturing. She worked as a Product Development Engineer for 3M and holds a patent for a wire holding device.

 

Wanting to become more involved with art, Pavlik joined Flatbed Press, a print publishing studio in Austin, TX where she participated in various projects and workshops. She began learning the printing process Inspired by her experiences Pavlik opened her own studio.

 

Pavlik focuses on etchings (an intaglio process) and stratographs (a monoprint technique) and have resulted in several bodies of work with a narrative theme. “Personal Poems” is a series of small biographical etchings dealing with issues of adulthood.  “Ideal Mechanical Advantage” presents the transition from the factual world of engineering to a sensory perspective.  “Global Fables” is a collection of pieces that study of the tradition of a short story with a moral from diverse cultures.  Currently, Pavlik is focused on work which involves the perilous future of the natural world.

Anna Marie Pavlik speaks of her “growing concern for the survival of natural areas and our need to understand the relationship of people to their environment.” She says of her art, “In my work I visually explore concepts developed from my observations of natural sites and the study of science publications and maps. It is my hope that these works will direct viewers’ attention to the irreplaceable value, sublime beauty, and mystery found within our natural environment.”

Event Details

Born in New York City in 1957, Ira Reines has been interested in art since childhood. He was hired at age 19 by the Medallic Art Company of Danbury, Connecticut to sculpt medallions and there he learned and honed advanced plaster-working skills. In 1980, the iconic Art Deco artist Romain de Tirtoff, known as Erté, hired the young artist to translate his celebrated couture designs, drawings and paintings into sculpture. Their collaboration, which lasted 11 years until Erté’s death, produced 70 bronzes. Since that time, Reines has explored in his figurative sculpture the relationship between humans and the cosmos, order and chaos, and the sublime beauty of the divine. His work is included in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, England, the Shanghai Duolon Museum of Modern Art, Shanghai, China, and the Four Arts Botanical Garden in Palm Beach, Florida. A private collection of his recent work, including a series entitled The Five Elements, will be on exhibition from July 23 – October 1 in the Museum’s Old Gallery.
