'The Gazette' adds four-color printing, redesigns Web
With the first issue of the 2003-2004 academic year,
the 33-year-old Gazette is moving to four-color printing on
a regular basis. In addition, several design changes have
been instituted, including the use of a more
reader-friendly sans serif typeface, which appears in
captions and several other regular usages.
On the Web (
www.jhu/edu/~gazette), readers will find a new, lively,
easy-to-navigate Gazette home page that provides access to
all the paper's current editorial content, back issues,
electronic forms for submitting calendar events and
classifieds, and links to Blue Jays athletics, local
weather and frequently used Johns Hopkins Web sites,
including the universitywide calendar. A link to the search
engine is provided on all pages.

Art historian looks at landscape tradition in American
Susan Ross, a doctoral candidate in the
Art History Department, will
present a gallery talk titled "The Landscape Tradition in
American Art" on Sunday, Sept. 7, at
Evergreen House. The talk is presented in conjunction
with Maggie Thomas: The Evergreen Paintings and Mary
Woodall: Elements and Other Work, a dual show exploring how
two artists use different media to examine encounters with
the natural world.
In her talk on the development of American landscape
painting, Ross will examine the ability of landscape
imagery to evoke in the viewer a sense of national identity
and shared experience. By surveying the evolution of
landscape imagery from the 19th century to the present day,
Ross will explore the change from realist depictions of the
American landscape to more abstracted ones alongside
related shifts in the organization of American society.
The gallery talk, to begin at 2 p.m. in the Bakst
Theatre, is free and open to the public. Admission to the
museum is free for members of Evergreen House, $6 for
adults, $5 for seniors and $3 for students and children
over 6; admission to see only the exhibitions is $3. The
Thomas and Woodall exhibitions are on display through Sept.
