Kathryn Field’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the county and in Sydney, Australia. Last fall, her commissioned sculpture “Celebration” was installed in the Shea Learning Center on the campus of Russell Sage College in Troy, a gift from Donna Robinson Esteves, Russell Sage College alumna and member of the The Sage Colleges Board of Trustees.
We present this exhibition in honor of Susan C. Scrimshaw, PhD, who stepped down in June 2017 after serving as President of The Sage Colleges since 2008.
Paper Is Part of the Picture: Strathmore Paper and the Evolution of American Graphic Design
October 3 – December 15
Opening Reception: Friday, October 6, 6 – 8 pm
Exhibition Tour with Chris Harrold: November 3, 6:30 pm
Paper Is Part of the Picture is an exhibition about the evolution of paper promotion over the course of the past 125 years as seen through the archives of the Strathmore Paper Company.
The company, founded in 1892 and now owned by Mohawk, pioneered the notion of paper as an essential visual and tactile aspect of a printed piece, rather than a simple commodity. It did so by embracing artists and designers as collaborators. Strathmore’s paper promotions reflect the changing trends in American graphic design across the 20th century from Arts & Crafts to the digital era.
Among the designers on display are such luminaries as Will Bradley, T.M. Cleland, W.A. Dwiggins, Lucian Bernhard, Lester Beall, Milton Glaser, Seymour Chwast and Marian Bantjes.
