"We are excited to show the work of Jim Lard in the Life Sciences Building gallery as part of the University's Arts on Campus initiative," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "DelVal is planning to offer additional exhibits, and we hope to enrich the campus and the community by bringing in a variety of artists."
Lard, who is from Carlisle, Pennsylvania, earned his MFA from Louisiana Tech University, where here studied both furniture design and ceramics. He has taught at Harrisburg Area Community College since 1993, where he was a department chair from 1995 to 2002. Lard's work can be found in numerous public and private collections. His most recent commission, for a wall relief, can be seen at the Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Lard considers himself a "maker." He is known for his keen material sensibility and an appreciation for fine craft. His aesthetic sensibility and visual vocabulary are informed by the incredible wonder of nature, as well as music, dance, and architecture. Lard said he appreciates and seeks to convey visually, things that simply cannot be communicated otherwise.

Artist reception- Friday, September 7th from 6 PM - 9 PM
Some energies shroud in the shadows while some shine strong Show More...and brightly, such are the forces that push and pull amongst us. From toxic foes to altruistic Samaritans, we are surrounded by other's motives, left to our own volition in the aftermath. It is up to us to wither under, thrive on, possibly even pass along.

Poisons and Antidotes present the duality of the damages and the remedies. A collection of artist portrayals of malicious intents and selfless healers throughout history, in the myths, as well in our contemporary times. From symbols to epic stories to iconic embodiments of the deeper workings within the human spirit and the physical. The rain can heal and nourish some, while others writhe in pain.

Open to the public; please join us for the opening reception for a first look and to meet the artists for personal insights into their striking work. Wine and light fare will be served compliments of awarding winning JPM Catering.

ART OF BRYN ATHYN'S NISHAN YARDUMIAN

Glencairn Museum mounts an exhibition of 20 paintings and drawings by the late Bryn Athyn artist and arts instructor Nishan Yardumian (1947-1986). "A Show More...Window to the Soul: Nishan Yardumian's Biblical Art" opens Sunday, April 22, during the Museum's annual Sacred Arts Festival and continues through Sunday, November 4, in Glencairn's Upper Hall exhibition space.
Yardumian taught painting in Bryn Athyn for many years, at both the Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools and Bryn Athyn College. A painter as well as a teacher, he was passionate about both professions. According to Yardumian, "Painting aims at the universal with the hopes that each individual can find his identification with it. Teaching aims at the individual with the hope of developing the universal."
Siri Hurst, Nishan Yardumian's widow, who owns many pieces of her late husband's work, says, "For the past five years, as I've taken a day each summer to archive Nishan's remaining art work, I noticed how he was drawn to the subject of 'heavenly appearances.' This theme coincided with my own philosophic reflections on how appearances reveal but also conceal, and this led me to suggest to Glencairn an exhibit that could include this theme.
"Two pieces in this exhibition are favorites of mine. I love 'Bethlehem' because it illustrates a story we can all relate to, of an idea-something of God-that is born within us. 'Annunciation to Shepherds' shows movement: Nishan saw the angel as 'appearing' and changing us, and the drama such change can represent.
"When I modeled for Nishan, I would watch his eyes. The intensity made me feel he was probing an idea beyond the observation. He often said, 'In the end it is not what we paint pictures of, but what we paint pictures from.' I think the key to understanding his art is to realize from what he painted.
"Nishan was deeply spiritual, and saw the discipline of painting and drawing as analogous to the struggle to see the truth. He said, 'Paintings don't re-direct the wind; they realign the heart.'
"He loved to paint stories from the Bible because of what they mean in our lives. Although religious imagery wasn't popular in the art world of his day [1970s and '80s], his work found a receptive home at Glencairn Museum whose mission supports an appreciation for our common spiritual history."
"Yardumian liked the idea that just as an artwork reflects and shapes the values of a home, a museum reflects and shapes the values of a community," says Dr. Martha Gyllenhaal, a close friend of Yardumian and currently Associate Professor of Art and Art History and head of the Art Department at Bryn Athyn College. She was exhibit coordinator for Glencairn's first solo Nishan Yardumian exhibition in 1987, a year after his death.
"So it is fitting that a number of homes have lent their cherished Biblical paintings to Glencairn Museum [for this exhibition]. Yardumian thought that attending an art exhibit is a reciprocal act between the artist and viewer: each brings their best self to the process, which results in a marvelous exchange of insights."
While there is no charge to view "A Window to the Soul," donations are accepted and access is included in tour and event admission.
Besides stated times, visitors may call for an appointment and when attending the Sacred Arts and Medieval Festivals. The exhibition is closed April 29 and May 26 for two concerts and on July 4.. ...Show Less
