The Odyssey Project: An Old Story for Modern Times  

Fifteen women artists, all members of a long-running book group, were inspired to create art in response to Emily Wilson’s remarkable new translation of The Odyssey; the first English translation by a woman. The artists explore in different styles and media, the characters and topics covered in Homer’s ancient poem: the meaning of home; the near impossibility of returning home; loyalty; families; migrants; war; poverty; identity; transformation.

 

Emily Mason: To Another Place

This exhibition traces the artistic arc of a career of a painter who encounters the world as a seamless aesthetic experience. Mason revels in the beauty of paint itself. She explores and exploits it materiality, pushing technique to the edge. She possesses a remarkable constancy of vision supported by an increasingly nuanced mastery of paint and form. Organized by the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

Exhibitions are on view October 24 — December 14, 2019
