Results support the use of music therapy with an emphasis on emotional-approach coping to improve positive affective states in adults awaiting elective cardiac catheterization and electrophysiological study. Statistically significant improvements in positive affect were seen after a single session of music therapy lasting 30-minutes in length. Conversely, participants who received a talk-based emphasis on emotional-approach coping or standard care did not demonstrate improvements in positive affect. Standley, J.M., & Hanser, S.B. (1995).

Her works from the 1950s demonstrate an explorative period with a visual language of largely amorphous shapes tending towards pure abstraction. By the following decade, Dodd had located an instinctive vernacular in fertile transcriptions of branches and skies, and hazy views of buildings. In a longstanding series of windows for which she has garnered much attention, Dodd’s works range from Hitchcockian voyeurism to meditations on opacity and the curiosity in dilapidation. Dodd’s observational painting over the years has become an ode to nature in its short-term flux and long-term rhythms, whether it is witnessed directly or through panes of glass. Consistent throughout her work, however, is the affirmation that she is not striving for illusion, but instead that her images are constructed of paint.

Architecture is my favorite kind of art, but sculpture is right in there behind it. I really like these photos of sculptures, even the strange ones. If I ever get back to Houston I’ll definitely have to check some of these out. You always write such excellent articles on art, and I especially appreciate the articles on your local museums and exhibits. Children’s reading abilities may also improve as a result of musical training. Reading is one of the most important skills a child needs to develop in order to excel in all areas of life. Even mathematic subjects require good reading comprehension skills in order to complete problem-solving questions. A study conducted at Northwestern University found that children who attended music classes regularly, and most importantly, actively participated in those classes, had better speech processing abilities in addition to higher reading scores than children not involved in music class.

The Intaglio Printing Process The image is incised into the plate. After the plate is inked, the upper surfaces are wiped clean, leaving ink behind in the incised lines. Paper is pressed over the plate and into the grooves, picking up the ink to produce the printed image on its surface. In a recent study, thirty-two older adults performed a variety of singing and rhythm playing tasks under the direction of a music therapist. Both new and familiar songs were sung, and questions were asked about the songs. Study participants were introduced to a hand drum, and were asked to imitate rhythms played by the therapist, to chant and play rhythms at the same time, and to make up their own rhythm patterns. Participants also received three mental status tests typically used to evaluate people who have symptoms of a dementia-related illness.

Women and Abstraction at Midcentury takes an expansive look at abstraction, exploring how women artists reshaped the natural world for expressive purposes in a wide range of media including paintings, prints, textiles, ceramics, furniture and jewelry. Among the artists featured in this space are painters Carmen Herrera, Esphyr Slobodkina and Maud Morgan; designers Greta Magnusson-Grossman and Olga Lee; and Clare Falkenstein, Laura Andreson, Margaret de Patta and others who contributed to the development of the studio craft movement. The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2017 Biennial Grants. These unrestricted grants of $20,000 each have been awarded to 30 artists working in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, craft, and new media. The purpose of the funds is to give artists the opportunity to produce new work and push the boundaries of their creativity. Recipients were chosen from a pool of 156 nominees proposed by national nominators—artists, critics, museum professionals, and Foundation trustees. One of the newest additions to Chicago gallery community, Hofheimer Gallery represents an eclectic array of painters, from the bright, geometric canvases of Betty Cleeland to the subtle, textured work of Charles Gniech. The exhibitions you’ll find here are equally varied, including paintings, drawings and sculpture from artists in various stages of their careers. Suites: Recent Prints. Exh. cat. New York: The Jewish Museum, 1968. Ms. Dodd found a different solution: the dispersion, sometimes across nearly empty backgrounds, of discrete brush strokes that sometimes but not always hint at leaves, grass, trees, rocks and streams, along with a couple of tiny fairylike figures. The freest, most notational works are two titled Figure in Landscape” (1962-63 and 1963) and a third, Yellow Pond” (also 1963). But abstraction was ultimately not in Ms. Dodd’s game plan. She circles it with marvelous aplomb in two fuller but still scattered compositions, both titled Pond,” from 1962. The mystery and legend surrounding Leonardo da Vinci probably comes from a combination of factors. To begin with, there has been much speculation about his early life, of which few details remain today. Then there are the relationships that he struck up with the significant contemporaries of his time, including the mathematician Luca Pacioli and Niccolò Machiavelli among others, not to mention his students and pupils. As for his personal life, Leonardo kept everything other than his friendships a close secret. Furthermore, there has been much conjecture about many of his artworks, some of which the authenticity has been debated, while others appear to reveal hidden codes and messages. For all the technological wizardry modern scientists have thrown at his paintings and artworks, the original intentions of the artist still appear to elude us.

Thomas Nozkowski: New Paintings, Max Protetch Gallery, New York, November 8-December 20, 2003. Bob, your observation is actually very astute. McCubbin’s painting of the bush are unique in the fact that he doesn’t just paint a landscape showing the horizon and various features. He seems to paint a story “within” the bush. It surrounds his subjects and makes the viewer feel like they are part of it. I am glad these paintings helped you relive childhood memories. Thanks for reading. Thompson, G., & McFerran, K.S.

In 2010 the Gemeentemuseum acquired Lee Bontecou’s bas-relief sculpture, Untitled (1960). The purchase sparked a desire to show this important work in the context of Bontecou’s rich and varied oeuvre. Although all stages of Bontecou’s artistic development are represented in the new exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum, the focus is not a chronological overview. Rather, it is centered on the coherent interconnections between works from different periods and in different media. Drawings made during Bontecou’s years in Greece and Italy in the late 1950s – never previously exhibited – are shown in relation to an imposing suspended sculpture from the 1980s. A reconstruction of a wall of drawings in her studio illustrates the vital role played by drawings in her artistic practice, both in their own right and as they relate to her sculptures. Carrie Secrist Gallery has focused on established contemporary artists, with a recently renewed interest in adding new, emerging artists to its roster.

Ancient graffiti have traditionally been studied as brief texts, but that is only part of the information they communicate. I propose a more comprehensive approach that considers their content and form and situates them more firmly within their physical and social environment. Engaging more closely with the spatial context of graffiti informs us about the ancient use of space and the human activity within it. It also allows us to see what else, besides text, was inscribed on the walls of Pompeii. The concept of the dialogue offers a flexible model of inquiry and provides a fresh perspective for examining the numerous graffiti of a residential space. From number games to drawings to clever compositions of poetry, the graffiti of the House of Maius Castricius reveal wide participation and a strong interest in the act of writing, a popular activity here and throughout Pompeii.
