Mosaics and Memoir: Marjorie Kreilick and Allan McNabSeptember-November, 2013
Exhibition Opening, Reception and Book Signing: September 27, 2013 ~ 5:00-7:00 pm.
This exhibition presents a wonderful sampling of mosaics and other art work by Emeritus Professor Marjorie Kreilick. Her engaging works incorporate marble inlay and sculptural elements. A devoted educator in the Art Department, Kreilick taught foundation courses on design and color for nearly 40 years (1953-1991). Kreilick edited the just-published memoir (UW-Libraries' Parallel Press) of her late husband Allan McNab. Witness to an Ending captures his rich artistic and social life in Europe and America, offering astute observations of 20th c people and events that changed the world. The exhibition showcases the memoir and a selection of McNab's engravings and book illustrations. Generously sponsored by the General Library System, the Art Department, and the Friends of the UW-Madison Libraries.
Curated by: Marjorie Kreilick and Lyn Korenic, with the assistance of Gail Geiger.
