Study Gallery and Print Study Center

Organized by the Bellarmine Museum of Art at Fairfield University in Connecticut, this exhibition features 35 drawings by Katherine A. Schwab, an archaeologist and professor of art history at Fairfield. This exhibition explores how Schwab has used unique drawing techniques as a fundamental component of her investigations in studying the East and North metopes from the Parthenon, a series of marble panels with relief sculpture which suffered devastating damage in post-Antiquity.
