Ani Art Academies - Capturing Realism 2017

Capturing Realism 2017

The Pauly Friedman Gallery at Misericordia University and the Ani Art Academies are excited to announce the upcoming academy-wide exhibition, Capturing Realism 2017. The wildly popular biennial event will bring together Ani Art Academies’ artists from multiple countries around the globe. The highly anticipated show will captivate audiences with a breathtaking showcase of artwork from instructors, apprentices, and alumni of the Ani Art Academies.

Ani Art Academies is a non-profit organization that provides an intensive multi-year art skills education to aspiring artists around the world. Utilizing the highly successful training system developed by artist Anthony J. Waichulis, the Ani Art Academies Program is designed to promote creative freedom through logic and discipline.

A collaborative project conceived and founded by Tim Reynolds, Ani Art Academies empowers students to create, express, and communicate in new and exciting ways. In the beginning, the students' limits are constrained by skill- in the end they are only bound by their limitless imagination. Sponsored by the luxurious Ani Villas and the Tim Reynolds Foundation, full-tuition scholarships and financial aid are given to every student so that they may concentrate on their education.

  • Ani Art Academies Waichulis
  • Ani Art Academies Anguilla

Deadly Medicine: Creating The Master Race

A traveling exhibition from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington D.C.

From 1933 to 1945, Nazi Germany carried out a campaign to "cleanse" German society of people viewed as biological threats to the nation's "health." Enlisting the help of physicians and medically trained geneticists, psychiatrists, and anthropologists, the Nazis developed racial health policies that started with the mass sterilization of "hereditarily diseased" persons and ended with the near annihilation of European Jewry.

Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race traces this history from the early 20th-century international eugenics movement to the Nazi regime's "science of race." It also challenges viewers to reflect on the present-day interest in genetic manipulation that promotes the possibility of human perfection.

Dr. Otmar von Verschuer examines twins at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute

Dr. Otmar von Verschuer examines twins at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute. As the head of the Kaiser Wilhmer Institute's Department for Human Heredity, Verschuer, a physician and geneticist, examined hundreds of pairs of twins to study whether criminality, feeble-mindedness, tuberculosis, and cancer were inheritable. In 1927, he recommended the forced sterilization of the "mentally and morally subnormal." Verschuer typified those academics whose interest in Germany's "national regeneration" provided motivation for their research. -Archiv zur Geschichte der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin-Dahlem

Ansel Adams: Masterworks

This exhibition features a collection of forty-seven works by Ansel Adams (1902 -1984), which constituted nearly two-thirds of a selection Adams made late in his life to serve as a representation of his life’s work. Called “The Museum Set,” these works reveal the importance Adams placed on the drama and splendor of natural environments. Included are many of Adams' most famous and best-loved photographs, which encompass the full scope of his work: elegant details of nature, architectural studies, portraits, and the breathtaking landscapes for which he is revered. The exhibition also includes a photo portrait of Ansel Adams by James Alinder.

Pablo Picasso - 25 Years of Limited Edition Ceramics from the Rosenbaum Collection

These ceramic plates, bowls, and vases were created by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), the internationally known painter, sculptor and graphic artist, in collaboration with Georges and Suzanne Ramie and the artisans at the Madoura Pottery in Vallauris, France from 1947-71. Together, they produced 633 different ceramics in limited editions ranging from 25 to 500. A prolific artist throughout his career, he was no different as a ceramicist as he produced, invented and discovered thousands of unique creations during his years at Vallauris.

This exhibition, which features 46 original and limited-edition ceramic works, will be complemented by the lecture, "Picasso: Art & Psyche", by Elisa Korb, J.D., Ph.D., assistant professor and chair of the Department of Fine Arts at Misericordia University.
