Professor Judith Aronson's photographs on display at Christ Church


Design Professor Judith Aronson's intimate portraits of poets and artists from her book Likenesses caught some major attention this summer when she was asked to showcase her work at Christ Church - one of the largest colleges in the University of Oxford. Deirdre in the communications department tells us more:

Aronson was amazed when she arrived at Oxford to help hang the show and saw where her photographs would be shown. The curator, Jacqueline Thalmann, pointed at a famous Salvator Rosa and said that it was going to be replaced with two of Aronson's color photographs. She then watched as Thalmann directed gallery workers to move all of the Michelangelo and da Vinci works out of the drawing gallery to make room for her show.

The exhibition runs until October 19, but since many of us can't make it to the UK (bummer!), Judith is holding a reception and book signing for Likenesses on Wednesday Nov. 3 at 5:45 p.m. in the Trustman Art Gallery.
