"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Castleton University Art Galleries are excited to share "Living With The Earth," three collections of paintings by Joan Curtis, at Rutland City Hall. The Sunken Treasures group was engendered by abstracted still-life studies from Joan’s sculptures, which in turn suggest under-the-sea imagery. The panel group At One with Nature’s Wiles refers to humans living with dramatic changes in the world of nature. The Peaceable Kingdom series expresses the hope that we can continue to live with the wild animals of the Earth. All three collections were created between 2008 and 2015.

Time: 10/2/17 8:30am - 3/30/18 5:00pm

Creating art outside lends itself to dynamic lighting and compositions, and we hope this show will lift spirits as we welcome the arrival of spring!
Opening: March 2, 2018 ~ 5-7 pm Reception to meet the artists
The Norwich Public Library is located at 368 South Main Street, Norwich, Vermont.

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
