Meet The Faculty

This series features members of the Canisius Fine Arts Department faculty in recitals, lectures and art exhibits.

Meet-the-Faculty Art History Lecture
11:30 AM RR
"Redirecting the Gaze: Self-Portraits by Women Artists"
Yvonne K. Widenor, Visiting Assistant Professor

 When first exploring a publication entitled 500 Self-Portraits, I was struck by the very low number of self-portraits by women illustrated in the book. This led me on an exploration of self-portraiture and they continue to intrigue me: whose self-portraits do we "value" more as a society? What motivates an artist to create a self-portrait? To whom is the gaze directed? Does the gaze look back at the artist or towards the viewer?


The BPO ConnectionConductor

Informally~Formal Chamber Recitals: These recitals provide an intimate setting where BPO musicians share their favorite chamber works through stories and music.

BPO on Campus: The tradition of the Canisius connection with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra continues with the annual BPO performance in the Montante Cultural Center.

Please check back for updates on future BPO events.
