American Art Nouveau

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

Inspired By Nature: Graphic Design in the Art Nouveau Period

Stark Galleries, 1st floor of the MSC, TAMU, College Station
The J. Wayne Stark Galleries at Texas A&M University are proud to introduce their newest exhibition Inspired by Nature: Graphic Design in the Art Nouveau Period, opening October 12. This exhibition (in conjunction with American Art Nouveau) 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.



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.
