If you have some free time and have always wanted to visit an art gallery, a start is the Art Sacré exposition. Just do not expect high quality art. Running from October twenty-third to December eight-teenth at Les Salles de Gesù, the exposition features four artists depicting spirituality and inner self.
The first artist in the exposition is Hannah Alpha. Born in Egypt, she’s a McGill alumni who uses the minimalism style of painting, which is the art of using simplistic design to create maximum impact. The paintings grab your attention due to their abstractness. However they fail to portray the artist’s meaning. Her collection, called “La danse cosmique” (The cosmic dance), is her search to “attain a state of supreme serenity, a state where everything is calm, pure, wholesome” according to Alpha.
I found myself attempting to interpret what the paintings were trying to represent but always came at a loss. The fact that most of them were almost identical to each other except in the variation of color did not help much. Overall, I found Alpha’s cosmic dance coll...

- The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) had three different artists work on display. It was split up into three different rooms the first room was Design 99 To Much of a Good Thing and in the next room is Latoya Ruby Frazier Mother May I and in the last room was Jef Geys Woodward Avenue. The art that was on display was not traditional art work. All of the artist’s work displayed in the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit was out of the box thinking. The flow in each exhibit made it easy to move from one piece of art work to another piece of work.... [tags: Art Gallery Review]

- Review #1: New Generation Detroit I went to visit this art exhibit on Friday September 7th, the opening night. I had never been to the Meadowbrook Art Gallery so I had no idea what to expect. It was a smaller gallery than I thought it would be, but it didn’t matter when I took a look at the pieces that were on display. This exhibit was definitely edgy and not really what I’m used to seeing. I could tell that these are new artists that are beginning to start a new trend in today’s modern art world....

- Feminist art history-A literature review This paper aims at exploring the works of some famous feminist art historians such as Linda Nochlin, Norma Broude, Griselda Pollock, and Rozsika Parker, who focused their literature on the issue of women and art history from the 19th century through the 20th century. Broude states that female feminist art history students are of the belief that they have to rewrite art (Broude & Garrard 1982, 183). However, Broude and Garrard challenges this assumption by inquiring the “what and how” female feminist art history students would go about achieving the task of rewriting art, and what led to this notion of rewriting the history of art and what they intend...

- The bilingual cognitive advantage Recent research has posited beneficial effects of bilingualism on linguistic cognitive abilities in two major areas: metalinguistic awareness and EF (Bialystok, et al., 2012). However, these major areas are not unitary systems; they include subcategories. This paper shed lights into them, while discussing cognitive control extensively in the next section. Metalinguistic awareness Metalinguistic awareness refers to ‘the ability to manipulate linguistic units and reflect upon structural properties of language’ (Kuo et al, 2011)....

- The Gallery presented a set of bronze sculptures made by a French artist called Valerie Andrianoff. Val’s works of art can be perceived as a search for balance and stability as the heading of this exhibition has already suggested “The Balance of Life” (Byrs-Lasquier, n.d.). In the following, a few of her works will be selected to illustrate what kind of ideas she is trying to express and how I feel about these sculptures. Most of the human figures created by Val are small. We can rarely see their facial expression.... [tags: Valerie Andrianoff]

- ARTICLE REVIEW 2 “Great art relies on the mastery and application of foundational skills, learned individually through diligent study.” (Lemov, 2010, p. 1) This quote appealed to me as a teacher in training, it addressed one of my main concerns. Will I become a proficient teacher. Like Picasso, I too want to refine my skills; to persistently hone my abilities so as to someday acquire professional prominence. The article “The Art of Teaching And Its Tools” commenced with conveying professional advice to teachers on how to improve their teaching skills, more so teachers of public schools, primarily those in inner city constituents....

- History is usually written by those in the higher classes of society which has led to a very white-ethnocentric version of history. In “Criteria of Negro Art” Dubois talks about the way that Blacks are not fully represented in history, even when they have played major roles. He uses the example of the conquest of German East Africa where thousands of Africans fought for the Allies, far outnumbering white soldiers. However whenever this event is referred too only credit is given to England and Belgium for conquering the land.... [tags: Black people, African American, White American]

- Expressionism Movement Jackson Pollock developed his unique style of ‘action painting’ during the 1940s - 1950s and belonged to a group of artists soon to be known as the abstract expressionists (Smith 2010). Pollock and his colleagues rejected representational art as being too unemotional for the times. This was a time that brought the end of World War II along with the invention and explosion of the atom bomb. The abstract expressionists broke with the conventional art of the time and through new methods of expressing themselves were able to bring prominence in the art world to America and placed New York in the position of being a leader in the avant-garde (Smith 2010)....
