Don’t Call Me Princess: Orly Cogan

“To Another Place” is the first museum survey of the work of acclaimed 86-year-old abstract artist, Emily Mason, who divides her time between New York City and Brattleboro. The exhibit consists of fifty paintings and drawings created over a period of sixty years, from 1958 through 2018. (image: March Is Heard by Emily Mason (60″x54″; oil on canvas; 1998))

Heaven, Earth, Home: Elizabeth Turk
Through February 10, 2019

“Heaven, Earth, Home” is a collection of sculptures and drawings by California-based artist Elizabeth Turk. Turk’s sculptures feature sinewy ribbons of hand-carved marble nested within natural materials: Baja beach stones, Idaho quartzite, or the gnarled roots of a Redwood. Her ink-and-graphite drawings echo her sculptural forms. Together, the sculptures and drawings explore the boundary between art and the natural world.
