The Scientific Narrative of Leonardo’s Last Supper

PRESENTED ON FEB 07, 2019
IN DAYTON @ VOL 38

Amanda Grieve is a graduate of Wright State University, recently earning her BFA with a focus in studio painting. She is the new Gallery Director at the Dayton Society of Artists and is thrilled to be part of the great art scene in Dayton. Amanda hopes you’ll be as enthralled with art history as she is. The Scientific Narrative of Leonardo’s Last Supper is an introduction to Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. It delves into how and why Leonardo created it, looking at conventions during the Renaissance and Leonardo’s desire to elevate the status of painting. It argues that Leonardo was using every ounce of his intellect in the creation of this wonderful painting.

Since We Saw You Last Year

BY JULIA GOURLEY
@ VOL 12 ON APR 19, 2018

Julia Gourley grew up in a picture-perfect rural Indiana household with her Mom, Dad, brother and a menagerie of pets. Following a midwestern college tour, with multi-year stops in Kansas and Ohio, Julia landed in SJ/BH, Michigan on her birthday in 2005 to begin work at the Krasl Art Center. Life took some wild turns when she ended up being a single mom to then 5 year old Isaac while simultaneously assuming the role of executive director of the Krasl Art Center. An incredible network of friends and family helped keep life afloat during a rather turbulent time. Then a few years later, a girl's night out led Julia to meet Duane Donohue, who continues to seem too good to be true... this PK is the story... of what they've been up to "Since We Saw You Last Year".
