The Rotch-Jones-Duff House & Garden Museum in New Bedford, MA, invited me to create a solo exhibition in response to the historic home and its collections. My project examines and reinterprets the history of the house and its inhabitants. Artworks will be exhibited in a gallery room and as interventions within traditional museum displays.
You can visit the home and explore the exhibit in person March 18 through June 20, 2021.
Thursday, March 11: The Rotch-Jones-Duff House hosts an online artist talk and you’re invited to attend! I’ll discuss my creative process and how I reinterpret history through altered images of the past.
VERMONT UTOPIAS: IMAGINING THE FUTURE
When Bennington Museum invited me to imagine the future of Vermont through my art, I was flummoxed. What could I do with old photographs to speak to the future? When my husband, Greg Scheckler, made these awesome drawings for the exhibit, I found my idea.
Here’s one of Greg’s drawings imagining a Smool Robotics Corporation that’s basically overtaken Vermont:
My contribution imagines the 19th century progenitors of Smool Robotics and and one of their first inventions:
This exhibition took place in December 2020 as a Bennington Museum fundraising auction featuring work by 25 contemporary artists. It’s a great annual show you might want to put in your calendar for 2021 🙂
