Lost Stories, Found Images: Portraits of Jews in Wartime Amsterdam by Annemie Wolff @ Ridderhof Martin Gallery Tickets
Apr 5 – Jun 28 all-day
Lost Stories, Found Images: Portraits of Jews in Wartime Amsterdam by Annemie Wolff @ Ridderhof Martin Gallery | Fredericksburg | Virginia | United States

This powerful exhibition moves beyond the art world. Here, we find opportunity to examine the work of German-born Dutch photographer, Annemie Wolff, who was working at a pivotal moment in history. This exhibition features never-before-seen portraits of Jewish people living in South Amsterdam between January and October of 1943, three years into the five-year German occupation of the Netherlands.

Amazingly, these photographs were not discovered until 2008, fourteen years after Annemie Wolff’s death. Dutch photo historian Simon Kool discovered 100 rolls of film in the attic of Wolff’s heir. On these rolls of film were portraits of 434 individuals. Once discovered, the search began to locate those pictured or find family members of those pictured. To date, over half of the people photographed have been identified through research and interviews.

This dynamic exhibition includes 26 photographs, as well as didactic materials that allow us to examine Wolff’s work through not only the lens of the history of photography but also the lenses of history, religion, sociology and cultural and personal experiences.

Opening Reception: Thursday, April 5th, 5-7pm
Exhibition on view: April 5th- June 28th

The Ridderhof Martin Gallery is free and open to the public Tuesday  through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. The UMW Galleries are closed on University holidays and breaks.

Margaret Sutton: Face to Face @ Convergence Gallery, Simpson Library 2nd floor Tickets
Apr 19 – Sep 18 all-day
Margaret Sutton: Face to Face @ Convergence Gallery, Simpson Library 2nd floor | Fredericksburg | Virginia | United States

Margaret Sutton, a 1926 graduate of the State Teachers College, now UMW, was a prolific artist, and most of her drawings, paintings, and correspondence is in the collection of UMW Galleries. Students in Professor Och’s ARTH 317: Laboratory in Museum Studies have curated an exhibition from this extraordinary archive. The works span much of Sutton’s career, from 1936 through the 1970s, decades of remarkable developments in American art centered in New York City, Sutton’s home for this entire period.

Margaret Sutton: Face to Face opens April 19 in the Convergence Gallery of Simpson Library. The opening reception is from 5:00 to 7:00 pm and is free and open to the public.

This exhibition is made possible with support from the Department of Art and Art History, UMW Galleries, the Museum Studies Program, Simpson Library, the Convergence Gallery, Alfred Levitt, and the students in ARTH 317.
