Lecture at the Brooks Museum of Art

Dear MCA teachers and staff, 

Please share and encourage MCA students to attend this FREE talk with Matt Herron, photographer and curator of This Light of Ours. Join us for a fascinating talk about the exhibition from one of the key photographers in the movement. In 1963, Matt Herron moved to Jackson, MS with his family to join the Civil Rights Movement and used his photography in the service of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee.

Perhaps it can be included in a e-newsletter to students. Admission is free for students. Because of the interest in this exhibition, limited seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Information about the talk or lecture: http://www.brooksmuseum.org/Default.aspx?p=68375&evtid=310947:2/26/2015. If you have further questions about this event please contact claudia.towell@brooksmuseum.org or call 901.544.6200. Thank you for supporting the Brooks!

Painting and Printmaking in Skopelos Greece

Join Georgia Deal, Dennis O’Neil, and Steven Cushner on the beautiful island of Skopelos, Greece, a small island many Greeks and Europeans choose to visit for its traditional life and feel. Students will work in the sun filled and well equipped studios of the Skopelos Foundation for the Arts, overlooking the Aegean Sea. Students will have the opportunity to work in woodcut, monoprint, book arts, drawing, and painting. Our daily schedule will include breakfast in the studio each morning, with both morning and afternoon workshop sessions. Demonstrations, individual instruction and critique will take place daily, and group critiques will be scheduled throughout our stay at the Foundation. Students have the option of focusing on one discipline, or may choose to participate in 2 different workshops during the day.

Dennis O'Neil teaches printmaking at the Corcoran School of Art and has been involved in various international programs in Moscow from Spain and Skopelos Greece over the years. Skopelos is a program he's been involved in since it began in 1999. The June program still has space for 6 or 8 students. It was founded by Gloria Carr, an American who got her MFA in printmaking from Pratt many years ago and the studio is heavily oriented and equipped for printmaking.

For more information, please see attached.
