Opening Reception | Mattias Sellden and Thaddeus Wolfe: Art, Craft, and Design


A joint solo exhibition of work from Mattias Sellden and Thaddeus Wolfe, two artists whose practices converge at the intersection of art, craft, and design. Working with ancient materials, Sellden and Wolfe each pair traditional process methods and radical, out-of-the-box approaches to create one-of-a-kind, angular, geometric forms that defy easy categorization. Embracing the happenstance irregularities of their chosen mediums—emphasized by an explorative and playful application of color that is layered and contrasted to either highlight or occlude form—both artists elevate their respective material beyond preconceived ideas of what form they should take. With no formal urgency to be pushed into any typological category, both artists’ work presents an opportunity to renegotiate value systems in the field.

Opening Reception | Philip Akkerman: Decades of Self-Portraiture


A solo exhibition of paintings by Dutch artist Philip Akkerman, featuring selections from his decades-long project of self-portraiture. Although the works are comparable in their intimate scale, Akkerman’s variety of styles, colors, and compositions reveal the infinite possibility within his chosen genre.   Akkerman has exclusively been painting self-portraits since 1981. Confounded by the enigma of existence, he turned to self-portraiture as a means of comprehending. His inclination was validated by German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer, who professed that existence demands examination, and that “the more unintelligent a man is, the less mysterious existence seems to him."

Opening Reception | Public Private: Group Show


An exhibition of work by five MFA Art Practice students, curated by the program’s Director of Operations and faculty member Jacquelyn Strycker. Artists are tasked with simultaneously looking inward and outward, of translating and transforming seemingly personal experiences into something greater. In this exhibition, the artists—all members of the MFA Art Practice class of 2023—eloquently intertwine life and art, using private moments, inner monologues and identity as catalysts for creation. The private is broadcast, made public as a way to tap into a greater collective consciousness.

Discussion | Bernd and Hilla Becher and the Photographic Afterlife of Heavy Industry


Artists Bernd and Hilla Becher focused on a single subject: the disappearing industrial architecture of Western Europe and North America that fueled the modern era. Their photographic typologies of industrial architecture can be seen as, among many other things, a memorial to places of modern industry and the monoliths it imposed on the landscape. Scholars and writers have a discussion about interpreting these photographs in the present day and how they might be perceived in the future.

Author Reading | Fellowship Point: Women's Lives and Class Differences


Alice Elliott Dark's novel reads like a classic 19th-century novel in its beautifully woven, multilayered narrative, but it is entirely contemporary in the themes it explores; a deep and empathic interest in women’s lives, the class differences that divided us, the struggle to protect the natural world, and, above all, a reckoning with intimacy, history, and posterity. ..........................................

Author Reading | Peep: Primal, Magical Stories


Danielle Blau's debut collection invites you into a world so strange it is utterly familiar, a world from our ancient past that could also be the future--or a twisted version of the present. It is a mirror world where the husk of our culture shows starkly, and yet it is lit by joy, in the words, the verses themselves. Peep is uncanny, primal, magical, capturing hopelessness, gridlock, our impact on the environment and those around us, questioning progress and the language we use to speak to each other, each little peep a little life desperate to not pass unnoticed.

Play | The Winter's Tale: Rarely Staged Shakespeare Drama


The Drilling Company returns with this unique offering or ourdoor Shakespeare. The Winter's Tale is a rarely-produced curiosity of the Shakespearean canon. Director Hamilton Clancy is re-envisioning the story of kings who are cruel without cause into a modern-ish tale of a highly dysfunctional dynasty in Manhattan and upstate New York. Clancy has couched the play in the modern world to reflect the tensions of our time. Jealous King Leontes, the play's central character, cannot accept truth that is self-evident and issues of probity and deception dominate the play, as in America today. Clancy asks, "What proof do you need to know something is a lie? And how easily will we accept a lie if it suits our expectations?" He asserts that the January 6 Committee's hearings made this aspect of the play impossible to ignore.

Play | Richard III: Shakespeare Drama Outdoors


Tony Award nominee Robert O'Hara (Slave Play, The Public's Barbecue) brings his sharp wit and storytelling genius with a bold new production of Richard III. One of Shakespeare's most indelible villains, Richard is determined to be King. Following his lust for power and the throne, he manipulates, kidnaps, and kills all who stand between him and his throne, using brilliant words and dark charm to conceal his dismantling of government and justice. This masterful dive into the muddy middle between political genius and violent power grab arrives with piercing relevancy and electrifying drama.
