1879 events

  • The American Water Color Society held its Twelfth Annual Exhibition during February and early March at the National Academy of Design. “The Black and White Room,” as it was identified in the exhibition catalogue, featured some seventy-five works of art. Etchings were shown by New York Etching Club members A. H. Baldwin, Frederick Dielman, Henry Farrer, Charles Henry Miller, R. Swain Gifford, James D. Smillie, George. H. Smillie, and future member J. M. Falconer. Additional works of graphic art from the Art Students League, F. Hopkinson Smith, Frederick S. Church, Robert Blum, and Winslow Homer were also displayed in the gallery.
  • The founding in Boston of American Art Review by its editor, Mr. S. R. Koehler. Significantly, each ensuing issue of the publication was illustrated with original etchings—mostly by members of the New York Etching Club. This unique publication inspired widespread public attention to the etching medium newly popular among American artists.

Several proofs of etchings by messrs Blum&Brennan were also shown by a member.

At 10.15, there being no further business and, being duly moved&seconded the meeting was adjourned.

A proof of an etching by Mr. Blum after Fortuny, presented by a member, was much commented upon. There was also a very informal discussion without result about an Etching Club excursion, to take place as soon as the weather should be sufficiently pleasant. The idea being that the plates should be taken&etched out of doors from nature.

what are the products of Nano chemistry?
Maira Reply
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level
no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
I think
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.
