The Seven Deadly Sins: Pride

The Bruce Museum presents The Seven Deadly Sins: Pride, the sin of arrogance. Join the exhibit which explores the dazzling, dizzying heights of mankind’s hubris and vanity -- as well as the resultant cataclysmic falls -- through objects of art and material culture from the Renaissance into the contemporary period. Humans are not alone in being implicated in the sin of pride; peacocks and lions have also been symbols of the sin. This study of exquisite master prints, drawings, paintings, rare books, and a video installation will demonstrate the breadth and endurance of the imagery of this deadly sin.

Strut: The Peacock and Beauty in Art

We are pleased to announce that the Two Red Roses Foundation is participating in the exhibition "Strut: The Peacock and Beauty in Art" produced by the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, NY. The exhibit runs from October 11, 2014 to January 18, 2015. The TRRF has loaned a beautiful woodblock by William Seltzer Rice that portrays a stunning and colorful peacock. This exhibition explores our fascination with this most glamorous of birds, a symbol of vainglory and the darling of designers and painters. Strutting in its sapphire-blue and emerald-green feathers, the peacock symbolizes all things vain and beautiful in centuries of painting, sculpture, in books and myth, and on clothes that swirl and shine like the iridescent bird itself. Intrigued by the exotic art of Asia that prized and portrayed the peacock, Western artists and craftsmen chose the peacock as a multi-faceted motif for designs on canvas and for objets d'art in the home.
