Award of the Saint-Gaudens Medal to James B. Atkinson

Award of the Saint-Gaudens Medal to James B. Atkinson

In honor of his long standing commitment and outstanding contribution to the legacy of American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens and the Cornish Colony, the Trustees of the Saint-Gaudens Memorial will present The Saint-Gaudens Medal to James B. Atkinson on Sunday, July 13, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. The presentation will be followed immediately by the concert – Occasional Music for Early Winds and Plucked Strings.

The Saint-Gaudens Medal was established in 1988 and intended for, “such persons who, by their talents and beneficence, have made a distinguished contribution to the arts in America in the high tradition of Augustus Saint-Gaudens,” including efforts that add to our knowledge, understanding and appreciation of Saint-Gaudens and the Cornish Colony.Medal 1

 

The medal has been given eight times in the past, last in 2006 to Earl A. Powell, III, Director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., which helped conserve and now exhibits the plaster Shaw Memorial on loan from the park. Other medal recipients include artists, such as Walker Hancock; author Burke Wilkinson; and benefactors, including Eric Lagercrantz, who made possible the preservation of Blow-Me-Down Farm, now part of the park, and New Hampshire philanthropist Rosamond Putnam.

James Atkinson is a historian and scholar, collector and donor, Friend of the Memorial and the Park. He is author (with the late Virginia Colby) of the book Footprints of the Past, a definitive encyclopedia of Cornish Colony artists, and a colleague and collaborator with Park staff in his capacity as president of the Cornish Historical Society. A prodigious collector of Cornish Colony art and historical material, Mr. Atkinson made the Park beneficiary of a significant portion of these works, greatly expanding the Park’s Cornish Colony collection.
Mr. Atkinson and his wife, Gretchen Holm, will also be remembered for their portrayals of Mr. and Mrs. Saint-Gaudens in the 2005 production of “A Masque of ‘Ours’, The Gods and the Golden Bowl,” segments of which appear in the interpretive film about Saint-Gaudens shown at the park, and in the PBS film, Augustus Saint-Gaudens: Master of American Sculpture.

Elaine Bradford: Ceremonial Concealment

May 24th-July 6th, 2014

opening reception May 24th, 4:30 to 6:00 PM

artist talk 5:00

Saint Gaudens is pleased to kick off our summer picture gallery exhibitions with Elaine Bradford’s Ceremonial Concealment. Bradford is based out of Houston, TX, and has exhibited her work across the United States and at the Musée International des Arts Modestes, in Sete, France. Bradford has also received a number of public commissions and awards spanning from 2005 to 2011, and served as an artist in resident at the Houston Center of Contemporary Craft in 2010, and at the Skydive Artspace in Houston in 2011.

Bradford’s work toys with our notions of identity through elaborate, crocheted pieces that she creates to fit taxidermy animals. Bradford describes this process, saying that “what began as an act of consoling these truncated forms progressed into giving them new, colorful lives.  I am creating original species each with their own specific narratives.  I am seeking to reveal hidden worlds and enable people to reevaluate realities.  I present viewers with objects that enable them to glance into a different universe.”  This otherworldliness has continued into Bradford’s most recent work, which hones in on the elusive nature of human identity and reality.  By manipulating physical appearance with crocheted masks and headdresses, Bradford forces us to see past the obvious, and to question how our true identity might manifest itself.

We hope you will join us for the opening reception, and come back to see the show while it remains in the picture gallery, which is open daily from 9 AM to 4:30 PM.

 

The Picture Gallery is sponsored annually by the Trustees of the Saint-Gaudens Memorial in cooperation with Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.  The Saint-Gaudens Memorial is a non-profit partner of the National Park Service, helping to support the mission of  Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.

Elana Herzog

2012 Saint-Gaudens Fellow

Re Constructions: Sculpture and Works on Paper

May 25 – July 14, 2013

Closing reception July 13, 4:30 – 6 PM

Artist Talk 5 PM

Scratch the Surface, detail, 2013

 

Elana Herzog lives and works in New York City. She has a BA from Bennington College and an MFA from Alfred University. Solo and two person exhibitions include Into the Fray, at Lmak Projects in New York City, De-Warped and Un-Weft, a survey of Herzog’s work since 1993, at the Daum Museum of Contemporary Art in Missouri in 2009, the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Connecticut, Smack Mellon in New York, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University, in New York, Morgan Lehman Gallery, PPOW Gallery, New York City, Diverse Works in Texas, and the Zilkha Gallery, Wesleyan University, Connecticut. Her work has been exhibited internationally at the Reykjavik Art Museum, Reykjavik, Iceland, in Sweden at Konsthalle Goteborg and at Konstahalle Gustavsbergs, and Tegnerforbundet in Oslo, Norway, among other venues.

Elana will be showing several new sculptural projects, as well as hand-made paper works made at Dieu Donne Papermill. The pieces play with the relationship between sculptural and pictorial space, invoking landscape, aerial views, and strata. The artist works from an interest in found and accumulated form, repetition and variation, and relationships between positive and negative space.

 

The reception is free and open to the public.

Open daily 9 AM – 4:30 PM

 

The Picture Gallery is sponsored annually by the Trustees of the Saint-Gaudens Memorial in cooperation with Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.  The Saint-Gaudens Memorial is a non-profit partner of the National Park Service, helping to support the mission of  Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site.
