Summer Study at the Tulane-Siena

Institute for International Law,

Cultural Heritage, and the Arts

Dear Professor Ball,

[I would like to share with you an exciting program that we will offer in Siena, Italy this June. The Tulane – Siena Institute for International Law, Cultural Heritage and the Arts reinvigorates 20 years of cooperation between the University of Siena Facoltà di Giurisprudenza and Tulane University Law School. It offers the world’s best program for the study of the complex and fascinating relationship between international law, art and cultural property that stands apart from all others.  There could be no better place to pursue such studies than in the artistic treasure that is Siena.      Although courses in the conventional sense will be held at the Facolta di Giurisprudenza, Siena and Tuscany will be the true classrooms, providing students with the opportunity to see and experience first-hand the issues that shape this field.  Classroom lectures are supplemented extensively with field trips to museums and private collections, and guest speakers to take full advantage of the program’s location. While the program was designed for law students, graduate students in other disciplines- such as art, art history, archeology, and anthropology-are encouraged to attend. In addition to our diverse faculty, this allows the program to bring together not only international legal scholars, but also scholars with art history, archaeology and cultural heritage expertise in order to give students a multi-dimensional understanding of the subject matter.  In closing, let me encourage you to contact me or our program coordinator, Chana Lewis, personally by phone or e-mail should you have further questions about this terrific program. Please share this wonderful opportunity with anyone you feel may be interested. We would also be very grateful if you would post our attached flyer where it can be seen by interested students. Ci vediamo in Italia!]

Prof. Lenaghan at George Adams Gallery

January 23, 2012

Prof. Andrew Lenaghan exhibition of paintings at George Adams Gallery.

Andrew Lenaghan, East River Park, 2011, oil on panel, 24 x 32 inches




During January and February the George Adams Gallery is presenting an exhibition of new smaller-scaled paintings by Andrew Lenaghan. The exhibition includes 19 cityscapes, landscapes, and interiors (with figures), all painted from life.

In his new paintings of Brooklyn, Lenaghan returned to several sites he previously depicted, notably the once empty lots and abandoned piers around North 8th Street, now East River Park, as well as the streets and yards near his home in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. In addition, Lenaghan has continued to introduce the figure and even narrative into his work. The exhibition includes several paintings featuring his wife and children in and around their house. Finally, there are four views of Santa Fe in the show, the results of a month-long stay and as is often the case, Lenaghan chose to depict some of the least likely sites, including a local cemetery and an abandoned housing complex.

This is Lenaghan’s tenth exhibition with the gallery since his debut in 1995. He is currently an adjunct art professor at Pratt, Brooklyn College, and New York Academy of Art, and is a 2011 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant.

In the Drawing Gallery and concurrent with the Lenaghan exhibition is a show of five figure drawings by Alfred Leslie. The exhibition is comprised of four signature portraits in graphite pencil, including two studies for his 9×24 foot triptych "Americans: Youngstown, Ohio" (1978), and a large charcoal study for an unrealized painting.

Leslie was a highly regarded Abstract Expressionist painter who began working figuratively in 1962. Along with Jack Beal and Philip Pearlstein, Leslie was for many years represented by the Allan Frumkin Gallery in New York.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm and Monday by appointment. For further information, please visit the gallery’s website at
