Sept. 29 – Dec. 16, 2007
Almost as old as the University itself, the art collection has contributed to the education of many generations of students. The anniversary exhibition will highlight the founding collections, the initial 1937 gift from the Reverend Andrew J. Kelly and the 1966 bequest of the Reverend John J. Kelley, as well as the many subsequent major gifts and purchases that have shaped the collection. In addition to the collections' best-known works, such as the paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe and Thomas Hart Benton, a number of less familiar works will be on view, including old master prints and drawings and a selection of recent acquisitions. The exhibition is an opportunity to reflect on the collection's history and glimpse its future through a selection of promised gifts.

Needle/Knife/Burin features etchings, engravings and relief prints by major British printmakers of the early twentieth century. In the wake of the nineteenth-century etching revival spurred in Great Britain by James Abbott McNeill Whistler and his brother-in-law Francis Seymour Haden, many British printmakers and collectors of the early twentieth-century were particularly drawn to etching. From portraits to landscapes, British artists such as Gerald Leslie Brockhurst and Graham Sutherland created works characterized by fine detail, superb craftsmanship, and sensitive treatment of tonal effects. Some printmakers, like Robert Sargent Austin, looked elsewhere for inspiration, however. Austin chose to work in the precise and demanding technique of engraving, drawing from late medieval sources of inspiration. Others, including Eric Gill and Clare Leighton turned to relief techniques such as wood engraving, which exploits the stark contrast between areas of black and white.
This exhibition is drawn from the permanent collection of the University of Saint Joseph Art Gallery. Among the artists featured are Robert Sargent Austin, Edmund Blampied, Gerald Leslie Brockhurst, Eric Gill, Frederick Landseer Griggs, Clare Leighton, Graham Sutherland, Robin Tanner, Charles Tunnicliffe, and Walter Sickert.
