10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is pleased to feature the ceramic work and drawings of nationally recognized Port Townsend, Washington artist Anne Hirondelle (née Harvey). “Anne Hirondelle: Small Revolutions” opens February 11 in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center and continues through April 30, 2017.

John Olbrantz, the Maribeth Collins Director says, “Throughout her long and prolific career, Hirondelle has pushed the boundaries of the ceramic medium, making functional vessels and abstract sculptures that are warmly alive and visually engaging. This exhibition explores a period of time during the past six to eight years where her work evolved into an intriguing exploration of abstract vessels where function gives way to sculptural possibilities.”

A Stone-Age Complex in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site

(AIA Kress Lecture)

Nick Card
University of the Highlands and Islands

Off the northernmost tip of Scotland lie the Orkney Islands. It is said that if you scratch their surface, the Orkneys bleed archaeology! This is nowhere truer than in the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site that is known for some of the most iconic prehistoric monuments of Atlantic Europe: the great stone circles of the Ring of Brodgar and the Stones of Stenness; Maeshowe, the finest chambered tomb in northern Europe; and the exceptionally well preserved 5,000-year-old village of Skara Brae.

Recent research and excavation in this area are radicalizing our views of this period and providing a sharp contrast to the Stonehenge-centric view of the Neolithic. In particular, the stunning discovery of a Neolithic complex at the Ness of Brodgar that was enclosed within a large walled precinct is changing our perceptions. The magnificence of the Ness structures with their refinement, scale, and symmetry, decorated with color and artwork, bears comparison with the great temples of Malta. Our excavations are revealing a 5,000-year-old complex, socially stratified, and very dynamic society that may have been a major hub of Neolithic Britain.

The Ness excavations were recognized by the American Institute of Archaeology as one of the great discoveries in 2009; named the 2011 Current Archeology Research Project of the Year; winner of the international Andante Travel Archaeology Award in 2012; and featured in cover article in National Geographicin 2014.

The excavations are directed by Nick Card who has lived and worked on Orkney off the north tip of Scotland for more than 25 years. He is Senior Projects Manager of the Orkney Research Centre for Archaeology, University of Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute that he helped to establish. He is also a Member of Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site Research Committee; an Honorary Research Fellow of the University of the Highlands and Islands; Chair of the Ness of Brodgar Trust and Vice-president of the American Friends of the Ness of Brodgar.
