November 2016

 November 4 - December 16, 2016Mary Maughelli

Maughelli exhibition opens at Madden Library Nov. 4

“Mary Maughelli: Abstract Expressionism and Feminist Artwork” opens Nov. 4 in the Leon S. Peters Ellipse Gallery in the Henry Madden Library at Fresno State with an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Maughelli, a professor emerita, taught at Fresno State from 1962 to 1998. She died in October 2015. She was a prominent feminist artist, a contemporary of Judy Chicago and a founding member of Gallery 25.

This exhibition, presented by the Department of Art and Design in partnership with the Madden Library, examines Maughelli’s early work.

This exhibition is aimed at educating millennials about abstract expressionism and the feminist art movement in the context of the cultural and political environments of those times. In addition to traditional elements, the exhibition will incorporate elements of augmented reality, allowing viewers to interact with content in a deeper, more meaningful way.

By using a SmartPhone app, Aurasma, and scanning certain trigger images throughout the exhibition, viewers can access additional content at a website, enhancing their experience. Viewers should download the app and create a free account before arriving at the exhibition. Other multimedia components – the film “Womanhouse,” a film about Hans Hoffman and several interviews with Maughelli – will be available for viewing for the duration of the exhibition, on three monitors in the Gallery. 

This free, public exhibition, curated by Nanete Maki-Dearsan and Robert Ogata, will continue through Dec. 16 during normal Library hours. RSVP by Oct. 27 for the reception (enter code LIBMAUGHELLI).
