All Day
The George Washington University’s Luther W. Brady Art Gallery will showcase paintings, small ceramic objects and works on paper by Glenn Goldberg—a prolific Brooklyn-based painter—in its exhibition “Of Leaves and Clouds.” The exhibition focuses on the artist’s intimate relationship with nature, a theme present throughout Goldberg’s decades-long career. It features his most recent paintings completed within his Brooklyn studio. The works in the exhibit have a common feature: his ever-present dots over light washes of color creating multiple layers within each composition. Goldberg’s signature marks not only structure the space, but also are a record of Goldberg’s concentrated attention, time and devotion. His work ethic is apparent in the extraordinary details of layered textures he achieves. This, in addition to their intricacy and layers of meaning, makes Goldberg’s work appeal to many. Looking at a signature work such as Forever (2016, detail, above right), one finds elements such as birds, flower forms and leaves, all delineated using dots and stencils that even reference Australian aboriginal painting. Well-versed in European and American art from his studies at the New York Studio School and Queens College, Glenn Goldberg also draws inspiration from African and Asian art, textiles and decorative art. His works are in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the High Museum of Art, Atlanta; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, MO. Goldberg’s recent solo exhibitions include shows at the Jason McCoy Gallery in New York; the Betty Cunningham Gallery in New York; and the Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles. An exciting addition to the exhibition is a new relief print, featuring one of his signature birds, recently completed in 2016. This represented the first time Goldberg gave h...
Although the road trip may be a quintessentially ‘American’ idea, people have been making journeys since the beginning of our existence. Increasingly efficient modes of transportation have made long distances possible in shorter amounts of time, but whether by car or by carriage, some experiences remain the same – traveling with a companion, stopping at wayside inns to replenish energy and supplies, the trouble of a flat tire or a sick horse. Capturing this shared human experience is also something that endures: we feel the need to hold onto the journey. This exhibit presents a sample of paintings, drawings, prints and photographs from the GW Collection that represent the quintessential elements of the road trip. This exhibition complements and was inspired by the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery’s current exhibition Along the Eastern Road: Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido, (thru Dec. 2, 2016) featuring prints made from the drawings Hiroshige completed during his journey along the Tokaido road that connected Edo to Kyoto. Now through January 31, 2017 Media and Public Affairs Building 805 21st Street NW First Floor Display Cases, H Street side MPA Building Hours:
During the 2016 election season, rare campaign flags and patriotic textiles from the Collection of Mark and Rosalind Shenkman illustrate how presidential campaigning developed in the nineteenth century. Additional pieces from the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection broaden the story. Learn more at
From the 15th century until 1879, Okinawa was the independent Ryukyu Kingdom, with its own language, art, culture, and religion. Among its most famed fabrics were those patterned with bingata, a uniquely Okinawan dyeing technique noted for bright colors and bold designs that evoke the lush island landscape. Organized in partnership with the Okinawa Prefectural Government, this major exhibition brings to GW masterpieces of this artistic tradition and contemporary works by Okinawan artists and designers.

The book is a vital means through which cultures sustain memory, disseminate knowledge, and perpetuate ideas. Books of Life: Resilience and the Written Word from 1933 to Today draws on materials from the Kiev Judaica rare book collection and the Corcoran Artists’ Books collection to explore both the book’s resilience in the face of persecution and its potential to give voice to the range of human experience. This new exhibit on Gelman's 7th floor is a collaboration between the GW Libraries and the Corcoran School of the Arts + Design’s graduate student collective, DesignCorps.

Tuesday, January 24 2:00-3:00pm Science & Engineering Hall Room 2000 Abstract: Non-destructive characterization of steel microstructure using electromagnetic (EM) sensors and/or techniques can be used for process control during fabrication or damage monitoring in service since microstructural features, such as grain size, phase balance, precipitation etc, affect the magnetic responses. Major/minor loop measurements have the potential of being used to look at selected microstructural features of interest, for example, through minor loop measurement with different bias fields. The major challenge is to correlate the measured major/minor loop parameters and/or magnetic properties with the microstructural features of interest. Ultimately, it is possible to inversely evaluate the microstructural parameters from the magnetic measurements by modelling. Therefore, it is of great significance to be able to model the effects of microstructural features on BH loops. I will present a novel Preisach model with the Preisach function formulated based on microstructural feature distribution and probability theory to model major/minor loops of ferromagnetic materials. Two microstructure features of great engineering importance, including ferrite grains and precipitates within the grains have been selected to demonstrate the model. The model has proved capable of capturing the different effects of these features on the different parameters of the modeled major/minor loops. I will also briefly introduce other relevant work on the evaluation of microstructural features using EM sensors at the University of Warwick in the UK and their industrial applications. Biography: Dr Jun Liu is a Research Fellow working on Magnetic Evaluation of Steel Microstructures with Professor Claire Davis at the Warwick Manufacturing Group of the University of Warwick in the UK. He was awarded the Overseas Research Studentship and obtained his PhD at the Loughborough University in the UK in 2010. H...

In response to the high cost of textbooks for students, GW Provost Forrest Maltzman has encouraged faculty to consider the cost of course materials when developing syllabi and work to use open-access materials and materials readily available through the GW Libraries. Join GW Librarians Dorinne Banks and Zachary Elder, and GW Instructional Designer, Tara Lifland, for an informational session on the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) in higher education. Together we will explore questions commonly asked about the use of OERs: · What does Open Educational Resources mean? What quality indicators are used for these resources? · How are these resources licensed? · How can I find a low-cost replacement for my current course textbook? Come learn more about OERs before the deadline to choose textbooks for your courses next semester! This workshop is part of the Teaching & Learning Fundamentals Series hosted by the University Teaching & Learning Center. Learn how to design courses and assignments for significant learning, as drawn from the Course Design Institute. Other workshops in this spring 2017 series are Open Educational Resources for Faculty, Connecting Student Motivation and Teaching Strategies, Creating a “Promising” Syllabus, A New Twist on Teaching Goals: Dreaming Big, Assessing Learning Part I - “Backward” Design, Assessing Learning Part II - Opportunities and Challenges, How to Design Macro Assignments, Staging and Pacing Course Assignments, Learning Activities: Expanding the Repertoire, and Feedback and Grading. All sessions will be first-come, first served.
