feMINIsts: New Exhibit of Drawings at Matthews-Fuller Library

Drawing of Alice, Age 6, Future Botanist

Alice, Age 6, Future Botanist

The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is proud to host a new exhibit of drawings by Geisel Medical Student, Erin D’Agostino.  This exhibit will be on display until August 31, 2017.

Artist’s Statement
Erin D’Agostino is currently a third year medical student at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. Erin’s art training started formally in high school, with primary emphasis on Life Drawing. She majored in Visual Arts and Neuroscience at Bowdoin College and completed an honor’s project that focused on the overlap between the two fields. She then taught high school students with learning disabilities prior to applying to medical school.

The “feMINIsts” gallery is intended to celebrate the right of little girls everywhere to pursue the future career of their choice, whether that future career is as a Botanist or as a Rock Climber or as a Princess Activist.

The proceeds from any work sold in the gallery will be donated to the project “Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls,” which is a series of stories that reinvents fairy tales to inspire little girls to dream big.

Erin draws portraits by commission and can be reached at edagosti@gmail.com

Art for Kids 2017 Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

Mixed Media #1The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is pleased to host a new collection of artwork made by children in the Art for Kids program. Art for Kids is a monthly art program at the AVA gallery in Lebanon, NH, for children with chronic medical conditions and their siblings. The children work with medical student volunteers from the Geisel School of Medicine. These dynamic and creative kids work one-on-one with medical students to create fun and magical pieces of artwork. Stephanie Castillo, Emily Johnson, and Travis McCain, all students at the Geisel School of Medicine, have been working with artist Chris Orcutt Henderson to lead the program for the 2016-2017 academic year.

Mixed Media #2The exhibit will run from April 20, 2017, until the end of June and will display selected pieces of artwork made by the children over the past year. The collection is eclectic including everything from paintings to mixed media.

Digital Photography Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

River and SkyDave Izzo kicks off our Spring Art Exhibit in the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library with a beautiful collection of nature photographs featuring many locations in the Upper Connecticut River Valley. These images are part of our digital exhibit and can be viewed on the large display screen located near the entrance of the Library.  Dave has been shooting film and digital images for many years and is a long time employee of the Biomedical Libraries.  We are excited to feature this collection of his work until the end of July, 2017.

About the Artist: Photography by Dave Izzo
I am the Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries’ Manager of Computing and Media Services. I have been with the Biomedical Libraries since 1986, when media meant audio cassettes and 35mm slides. I studied photography in California, and I taught Digital Photography classes at Lebanon College for several years.   I have a lifelong love of making images.  I am drawn to beautiful landscapes and intrigued by details.  When I see something that makes me go “hmmm” I can’t resist capturing it with my ever present camera.
