We are letting go of a number of ART books that duplicate what we have in our collection. The books have been donated to us over the years by Alumnae and other friends of the program. They include monographs on specific artists, gallery catalogs, instructional guides, and art magazines. The books are free but there will be a donation box to help grow our program.

Harry R. Brooks Complex for Science Math and Technology

Celebrating the Artwork of Frank Netter: Surgeon and Master of Medical Illustration
Dr. Frank H. Netter (1906-1991), was a physician and medical illustrator whose works became standard reference materials in medical school libraries around the world.  Often referred to as “the Norman Rockwell of Medicine”, Dr. Netter was an artist who became a physician and then combined both his passions into one distinguished career. During his lifetime he produced more than 4,000 renderings of human anatomy, physiology and pathology. He illustrated the first open heart surgical operations, the first organ transplants and the first replacements of human joints.
Among his works were “The Ciba Collection of Medical Illustrations,” 13 volumes covering the anatomy, physiology and pathology of all the systems in the human body. “The Ciba Collection” has been translated into German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese and is widely used in medical schools worldwide. More than three million copies have been sold, commonly referred to as his “Sistine Chapel”.
Learn about the life of this accomplished artist and view some of his work on display in the Brooks Complex, First Floor display case through the barrel vault.

Forget Me Not Field

Lenfest Commons, outside of Jensen Dining Hall

Participants will work with WIN Staff and Volunteers along with Wilson College Counseling Center staff to create a field of forget-me-not flowers in memory of the lives impacted by domestic violence, and create a reminder that domestic violence affects everyone in our community.  Participants will be invited to create a personalized flower using fingerprint art techniques in order to create an entire field of forget-me-nots.  The forget-me-not flower symbolizes remembrance of domestic violence victims and their families.  The act of creating a flower using finger prints symbolizes how each person can touch the lives of every victim and survivor and how simple acts by each person in our community increases the awareness of domestic violence issues for our society as a whole.

This event is co-sponsored by the Wilson College Counseling Center and Women in Need.

7:00 – 8:00 PM
Capturing Light, Denise Joyal

Allen Auditorium
Denise Joyal will present her research from her Master of Fine Art’s thesis Capturing Light. The work created for her thesis exhibit focused on functional and sculptural stoneware and porcelain forms inspired by Neolithic Irish stone structures. Ms. Joyal developed high-fire porcelain clay bodies and surface treatments that imitate the stark, angular daylight that is characteristic of the Irish landscape. The research process uncovered the true chemical nature of soda-firing, unveiling the secrets to controlling the hues, values and intensity of the clay’s response to sodium vapor glazing.

Denise Joyal’s work has been exhibited nationally, and she has written for the professional journal, Ceramics Monthly. She has taught ceramics at Wilson College in Chambersburg since 2006 and is a ceramic arts instructor at the Frederick Clay Studio.

Ms. Joyal received a Master of Fine Arts degree from Hood College in 2014, earned her Graduate Certificate in Ceramic Arts from Hood College in 2010, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art from Washington College in Chestertown, MD.
