BRATTLEBORO -- Art historian and curator Jason Rosenfeld will give a talk on the art of Stephen Hannock at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center on Friday at 7:30 p.m.
Presented in connection with the exhibit "Gathering Light: The Art of Stephen Hannock," Rosenfeld’s talk explores the recent work of the Williamstown, Mass. - based painter and uncovers in Hannock’s singular and original method of producing grand, luminous landscapes, a process that involves a filmic sensibility in terms of its panoramic scope and distinctive form of narrative.
Admission to the talk is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, $4 for students, free for BMAC members and children under 6. Visit www.brattleboromuseum.org or call 802-257-0124, ext. 101 for more information.
On view at BMAC through Oct. 21, "Gathering Light: The Art of Stephen Hannock" features 25 works -- paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs -- spanning the past 33 years of the artist’s creative output, as well as a wall installation and Process Room that elucidates Hannock’s innovative technique.
The majority of works in "Gathering Light" are on loan to BMAC from the artist’s personal collection, with several others made available to the museum at Hannock’s request. The artist’s hands-on involvement in the exhibition stems from his relationship with the late S. Lane Faison,
Rosenfeld is Distinguished Chair and Professor of Art History at Marymount Manhattan College, New York.
