     June 25 to July 31, 2013, the Lamont Gallery will present "Dust & Discovery: Works from the Lamont Gallery Collection," an exhibition inspired by "the cabinet of curiosities" (a forerunner to the modern museum). The exhibition will include close to 100 pieces, including works by John James Audubon, Alexander Calder, Amanda de Leon and Kiyoshi Saito. Works from the exhibition, which spans from the Han Dynasty (206 B.C. to A.D. 220) to the 1980s, will include paintings on canvas, silkscreens, wood carvings, poster, glass and skulls. Selections mounted on a designated wall will rotate new pieces each week. A reception will be held on Wednesday, July 10, 5-6:30 p.m. The Lamont Gallery is in the Frederick R. Mayer Art Center on Tan Lane. All events are free and open to the public.

    Independent paintings conservator Elizabeth Leto Fulton will work on-site for several days during the exhibition, analyzing the works and offering her expertise on the condition and restoration needs. On Thursday, July 18, noon-1:30 p.m., the gallery will also host a lunchtime discussion with Fulton on the field of art conservation, the common problems in painting conservation, and Fulton's assessment of selected items in the Lamont Gallery's collection. Space is limited; reservations are required. RSVP by July 12, 2013 to gallery@exeter.edu.
