Dresser Foundation Gallery
of European and American Paintings
The Dresser Foundation Gallery of European and American Paintings displays works of art from the University art collection, from the Italian Renaissance through the early part of the 20th century.
Here you will find many works given to the University by the Col. Michael Friedsam Foundation, such as the “Portrait of a Rabbi” attributed to the Workshop of Rembrandt. Works by American artists such as Theodore Robinson and Ernest Lawson are from a gift of the T. Edward Hanley Collection.
From September 25th through November 15th there will be a special addition to the Dresser Gallery, a collection of historic brass instruments.
The Marianne Letro Laine Gallery displays the University collection of Asian art. Objects from 17th through 19th century Japan are on display from a gift of the Col. Michael Friedsam Foundation.
The Arthur M. Sackler Foundation gift includes a head of Bodhisattva, possibly 6th century, and smaller objects of Asian antiquities.
Currently the gallery has a special exhibition of Japanese 19th century Woodblock Prints curated by St. Bonaventure University art history professor Dr. Chisato O. Dubreuil.
John Rogers (1829–1904) was an American sculptor who produced very popular, relatively inexpensive figurines in the latter 19th century. He became famous for his small genre sculptures, popularly termed "Rogers Groups," which were mass-produced in cast plaster. Approximately 80,000 copies of almost 80 Rogers Groups were sold across the United States and abroad.
At the height of their popularity, Rogers' figurines graced the parlors of homes in the United States and were found as far away as Chile and Australia. The English novelist Charles Reade furnished his home with all the Rogers figurines available to him, and in the Dakota Territory, Lt. Col. George Custer and his wife had one. Often selling for $15 apiece, the figurines were affordable to the middle class.
The Quick Center exhibition now 16 groups on display.
People and Portraits celebrates the expressiveness of the human face in stunning quilts created by an international array of 20 artists.
The diverse designs focus on a variety of both emotional states and the ways in which people interact: contemplation,joy, community,work and play.
The exhibition of 40 quilts comes to the Quick Center from the Studio Art Quilt Association, an international organization that promotes the art of quilting.
