Stark Galleries, 1st Floor of the MSC, TAMU, College Station
COLLEGE STATION- The J. Wayne Stark Galleries at Texas A&M University are proud to introduce their newest exhibition American Art Nouveau, opening October 12. This exhibition (in conjunction with Inspired by Nature: Graphic Design in the Art Nouveau Period) was made possible by a major loan from the collection on John and Cindy Delulio. J. Wayne Stark Galleries will be hosting a Gallery Talk by John and Cindy Delulio on Thursday October 23 at 5:30 pm.



Spanning from the late 19th to the early 20th century, the Art Nouveau Period spread throughout Europe and beyond in decorative arts as well as architecture. Due to its spread geographically, a number of styles emerged known by various names such as the Glasgow Style or Jugenstil in German. Art Nouveau centered on modernizing design and banishing historical hierarchal notions of art that viewed so-called liberal arts such as sculpture and painting as superior to craft-based decorative arts.



The Art Nouveau style focused on combining from both the unruly elements of nature and ordered, angular precision of geometry. The Style spread across Europe to America in the 1880s mainly through ceramics and glass designs, allowing American Nouveau to pull from different countries’ styles including Japan and Germany. Nouveau artists often took inspiration from different natural subjects such as deep-sea organisms. Nouveau strived to blend the lines between organic and inorganic as well as fine art and decorative art. Although Art Nouveau gave way to Art Deco in the 1920s, it experienced a revival in the 1960s and led to modernism.



The J. Wayne Stark Galleries are located at the northeast corner of the Memorial Student Center on the Texas A&M University campus. Gallery hours are Tues. - Fri. 9am - 8pm; Sat. & Sun. 12 - 6pm. Admission is free. For more information about this exhibition and others at the Stark Galleries, please call (979) 845-6081 or visit our web site at http://uart.tamu.edu/stark

Art Nouveau centered on modernizing design and banishing historical hierarchal notions of art that viewed so-called liberal arts such as sculpture and painting as superior to craft-based decorative arts.



An important facet of the Art Nouveau style was the fusion of nature and geometry that united organic, flowing forms with the sharp angular contours of geometry. This exhibit will focus on these expressed themes, showing how this fusion created what would now be equivalent to graphic design. Although Art Nouveau gave way to Art Deco in the 1920s, it experienced a revival in the 1960s and led to modernism.

The Village Downtown
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to dance salsa, then this is the
night for you. The award-winning lessons on Wednesday nights are
comprehensive and one hour longer than Saturday’s 30-minute intro
lesson. Each week you’re taught all new moves, always beginning with a
refresher of the basics and then moving into new material (no partner
or experience is necessary.)



After the lesson, the dance floor opens up to social dancing. If you
just want to come out for the dancing, then arrive at 9:30 and hit the
dance floor. Just like Saturdays, you can dance to salsa, merengue and bachata. And, if you’re 21+, bring your ID for sangria, wine and beer specials each week!



EVENT DETAILS:



* Wednesday nights weekly


* Lesson: 8pm – 9:30pm = $8 (dancing included after lesson)


* Just dancing: 9:30pm – 12am = $5


* Free parking


* Drink specials (bring ID if 21+)

All Day

George Bush Presidential Library and Museum
George Bush was a successful and pioneering Texas oilman, first on land and then offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. As a tribute to his role in the development and use of the innovative independent leg offshore jack-up rig Scorpion launched by LeTourneau in 1956, the exhibit tells the story of offshore drilling. It focuses on the history, development and future of offshore drilling, with an emphasis on the work of George Bush, emerging technologies and ongoing research at Texas A&M University.



With Shell as title sponsor and supporting sponsorships from Ensco, Schlumberger and Move Resource Group, the exhibit covers all aspects of the search for oil offshore, with a special look at the geology of finding oil, focusing on exploration of the Gulf of Mexico. Industry pioneers recount their personal experiences. Visitors will be taken from start to finish — developing the "play" to platform production — via an interactive display.



A video wall highlights careers and life on board a rig. See models of the various rigs, platforms and supply vessels that are used in the industry, and pieces of drilling equipment. Additional exhibits feature Smart Gulf and Scientific Research from Texas A&M University.



Expertise for the exhibit has been provided by our partnerships with The Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum; Texas A&M University through the College of Geosciences, Petroleum Engineering, Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, Department of Oceanography and Offshore Technology Research; LeTourneau University and PennWell.
