A&AH Newsletter

Brian Kreydatus, ChairAlumni and friends:

I am writing to introduce myself and extend a warm welcome from the department of art and art history.

I have been at the college since 2001. During my time at William and Mary, I have primarily taught printmaking (intaglio, lithography, monotype, relief) and life drawing. I am in the enviable position of spending most of my working day overlooking Lake Matoaka.

I took over as chair from Barbara Watkinson this past July. Barbara has been an important part of the department and college for many years. During this transition she has been a tremendous help and resource.

This has been an eventful year in the department. We have hosted international exchange exhibitions, added new faculty to our department, celebrated tenure promotions, and are recognizing Professor Joseph Dye as he retires after twenty-two years of service to the department.

Please read about these stories (and more) in our newsletter or better yet, come to our homecoming celebration on Friday October 23rd and we will tell you all about them in person.

Keep in touch

Brian Kreydatus
