Wake Forest University professor and artist Leigh Ann Hallberg will lead the workshop on observational drawing. “The retreat will focus not only on the artist’s relationship with subject matter,” say Hallberg, “but also on the subject matter’s relationship with materials and methodologies.” Chiaroscuro, careful observation, blind drawing, visual communication and line quality are a few of the topics that will be discussed throughout the evening.

American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience

ski.bookjacketThe Z. Smith Reynolds Library is hosting a lecture and book signing for Margaret Supplee Smith, professor emerita of art, on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 4 p.m. in the library’s auditorium (Room 404). Smith will discuss her book “American Ski Resort: Architecture, Style, Experience” (2013, University of Oklahoma Press).

Skiing is all about freedom. Yet, paradoxically, the experience of skiing for most Americans is inextricably linked to architecture, for our journey down the mountain begins at the ski resort. The evolution from wilderness outpost to the massive, theme-oriented, multipurpose enclave today will be explored. Following the lecture, copies of Smith’s book will be available for purchase.
