Women Illustrators in the Golden Age of Illustration 1880- 1920

Collector’s Reception: Saturday, February 1, 5 to 7 p.m. Women Illustrators in the Golden Age of Illustration 1880- 1920From 1880 to 1920 the American Golden Age of Illustration established American artists as the dominant force in success of the mass publication industry. Ten women illustrators among the large number of contract, staff and commissioned artists are recognized to be among the best. Original publication prints with artist and art documentation present the works of Anna Whelan Betts, Maginel Wright Enwright, Mary Hallock Foote, Elizabeth Shippen Green, Violet Oakley, Mary Wilson Preston, Florence Scovel Shinn, Jesse Willcox Smith, Alice Barber Stephens and Sarah Stillwell Weber. Prints for the exhibition belong to the Jay Williams American Print Collection, based in Clinton, NY. Illustrations for mass-printed publications, books and public works were original works of art in paint, drawing, watercolor, illustration, printmaking, and murals. During the Golden Age of illustration the boundaries between Fine Art and commercial Art were crossed and blurred. Illustrators gave the visual dialogue to the success in market places for newspapers and magazine publications, fashion, industry and items of pop-culture.

Ectomycorrhizal Ecology Under Primary Succession on Coastal Sand Dunes

Ectomycorrhizal Ecology Under Primary Succession on Coastal Sand Dunes Interactions Involving Pinus contorta, Mycorrhizal Fungi and Deer Abstract: The species of ectomycorrhizal fungi (EMF) supporting primary successional pine seedlings and mechanisms for their establishment were investigated. When seedlings germinate near mature trees they are colonized by mycelial networks from a diverse group of EMF supported by the trees. However, seedlings germinating in new areas such as those associated with primary succession do not have this benefit. We collected field seedlings growing among trees in forested zones and away from trees in nonforested zones at the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area near Eugene Oregon. We compare the list of EMF on seedlings collected from the different areas and as fruiting bodies in the surrounding forests. We conclude that Suillus and Rhizopogon spp., the so-called suilloid fungi, are the principle EMF species supporting seedlings on the sand dunes, are dispersed from forested areas across the dunes by deer, and can lay dormant in soils as a resistant spore bank analogous to resistant seed banks. The Asa Gray Seminar Series is sponsored by the Asa Gray Biological Society, and is the longest running seminar series at Utica College. Scientists are invited from throughout the region to present seminars on their ongoing research. All lectures are held in Donahue Auditorium, Gordon Science Center, at 4:00 p.m. An informal reception immediately follows. Call (315) 792-3028 for more information.
