Passing Through: Portraits of Emerging Adults

Passing Through: Portraits of Emerging Adults
Description:

Through painted canvasses and “sound portraits,” artist Kate Gridley marks the passage of 17 emerging adults as they come to realize their selves and claim their voices. Passing Through is an installation that uses the images and voices of many characters to expand the notion of portraiture, beyond capturing moments of an individual life to noting psychological presentations of self in a particular time, culture, and place. Sponsored by the Middlebury College Museum of Art, Mahaney Center for the Arts, Director of the Arts, Town Hall Theater, Vermont Community Foundation, and the Growald Family Fund. Free

Hyper! Works by Greg Haberny

Hyper! Works by Greg Haberny
Description:

Artist Greg Haberny describes his own style as “completely loose and out of control.” He uses an array of materials, refusing to conform to a single medium. Melted crayons and Band-Aids add a vital texture to his work, while appropriated images of pop culture, like the iconic Mickey Mouse, create a tone of cultural and political critique. Free

Picturing Enlightenment: Tibetan Tangkas from the Mead Art Museum

Picturing Enlightenment: Tibetan Tangkas from the Mead Art Museum
Description:

This exhibition highlights 18 centuries-old scroll paintings of Buddhist figures from the collection of Amherst College’s Mead Art Museum. So fragile that they have remained largely inaccessible to scholars and museum visitors for nearly six decades, these tangkas, primarily from Tibet, have recently been gently cleaned, stabilized, and repaired.
