Art Talk: Elise Whittemore

Art Talk: Elise Whittemore
Description:

Elise Whittemore discusses her new body of work created for her current exhibition focused on printmaking multiples, books, and installation developed over the course of the past year as part of the 2017 Barbara Smail Award. Free Admission.

About Elise:
Elise Whittemore, BCA’s 2017 Barbara Smail award-winner, has made important contributions to the vibrancy and excellence of Vermont’s arts community as an artist and arts advocate. In her beautifully designed prints, Whittemore is drawn to the physical labor of art making and how it challenges her to pursue different ways hand and material can create meaning together. The artist’s use of pattern develops a narrative that explores the physicality of printmaking as well as formal constructs that are inherent to the natural world.

Montshire Talks: Frankenstein and the Philosophy of Science

Montshire Talks: Frankenstein and the Philosophy of Science
Description:

Frankenstein and the Philosophy of Science, featuring Michael Ashooh
Montshire Talks: Frankenstein200 is a Montshire conversation series that celebrates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s "Frankenstein”. From a philosopher’s perspective, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein operates on several levels: a philosophical exploration of what it means to be human and the nature of moral responsibility, the nature of science and scientific knowledge—at a pivotal and transitional moment in the history of science—and of the role of the scientist in society. Contextualizing these philosophical and scientific issues helps us see Frankenstein as a fascinating and provocative exploration of questions about human nature and the human condition, the quest for knowledge, and the nature of moral responsibility. Dr. Michael Ashooh specializes in the philosophy of science and explores the context in which Frankenstein was written, and the lasting scientific and moral questions raised by this modern myth. Dr. Ashooh is a lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Vermont. Free and open to the public. Sponsored by Ledyard National Bank.

Time: 3/6/18 6:30pm - 7:30pm
