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.

Ninth regular monthly meeting – n. y. etching club, held in j. d. smillie’s studio monday evening _ jany. 13” 1879.

There was no quorum until after 9 o’clk. At that time a telegram was received from the Pres.’ Dr. L. M. Yale stating that he could not be present at the meeting. Mr. Saml. Colman was then requested to take the chair, and by him the meeting was called to order at 9.30. The Secty. Called the roll – Present Messrs Colman, Bellows, Gifford, Baldwin, Miller, Farrer, Dielman, Shirlaw and Jas. D. Smillie – Later, Mr. T. W. Wood came in. 10. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. The election of members then being in order, messrs Farrer&Baldwin were appointed tellers. They declared as the result, the unanimous election of Wm. M. Chase&F. S. Church. The Secty then proposed the name of Geo. H. Smillie for membership, seconded by Saml. Colman&A. F. Bellows.

Mr. Hy. Farrer presented pfs. of 13 etchings

“ A. F. Bellows “ ‘ 3 “

“ J. D. Smillie 1 ____ 17 pfs of etchings

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.

At 8.30 the meeting was called to order by the Pres.’ Dr. L. M. Yale. The roll was called by the Secty. Present messrs L. M. Yale, Baldwin, Tiffany Farrer, Bellows Church Gifford and Smillie_8_ The minutes were then read and approved. The first regular

business was the election of members. Messrs Church&Baldwin were appointed tellers and after the balloting announced that Geo. H. Smillie was unanimously elected.

Dr. Yale presented 6 proofs of etchings

Mr. Chas. Miller presented 3 pfs of etchings

“ F. S. Church “ 2 “ ‘ “

“ L. C. Tiffany “ 3 “ __ 14 pfs.

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 is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?

of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
On having this app for quite a bit time, Haven't realised there's a chat room in it.
what is biological synthesis of nanoparticles

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
