The idea of painting all species of North American birds began with John James Audubon in the early 1800s. Other wildlife artists soon followed, embracing his passion and focus.  Arthur B. Singer was among one of those artists who perfected the painting skills and technique required to capture, not only the essence of his subjects, but give his art aesthetic appeal based on scientific observation.

Between 1935 and 1943 the government-funded Federal Art Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) sought to keep artists throughout the country working by creating projects that would benefit the public. In Rochester, the Memorial Art Gallery’s director, Gertrude Herdle Moore, administered the WPA art program, while Isabel Herdle, her sister and the Gallery’s curator, was on the program’s committee. In 1937, Rochester’s WPA art project was called “the most interesting and effective outside of New York City” by the regional director of the Federal Art Project.

A copiously illustrated and scholarly analysis of the single most important collection of 19th century American decorated stoneware. The book is a careful study of ordinary forms and their humble, utilitarian purposes that became vessels for an expression of a person, of a place, or of an event. What started out as an everyday ware was transformed into a work of art and the decorative designs in cobalt blue afford insight into and reflect life in 19th century America.

This book introduces photographers, print-makers, and other graphic artists to the creative possibilities of image editing and presentation. The focus is on how meaning can be created and shaped if the emphasis is placed on the totality of the visual experience rather than by looking at each single image in isolation. In the first instance, there is a discussion of a variety of ways images can be grouped together. This act has implications for how the work should subsequently be presented.

Albert Paley's Sentinel has transformed the face of RIT: a dramatic focal point in the heart of campus, at the crossroads for all RIT community activity. As the largest sculpture at any American university, its presence, while inciting both admiration and debate, perhaps best represents an academic institution's highest ideal: the ability to foster and freely express a creative idea. This important sculpture is now the subject of a book by RIT Cary Graphic Arts Press.
