BRATTLEBORO — Former Marlboro College visual arts faculty member Timothy Segar, whose artwork is currently on view at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in the exhibit "Character Development," will give a free talk at BMAC on Thursday, August 1, at 7:30 p.m.
"Character Development" is a two-part exhibit consisting of Segar's steel sculptures (in BMAC's Rubinstein-Freed Sculpture Garden through November 5) and works on paper (in the South Gallery through September 23).
"My practice as an artist has hinged on the dynamic between my two-dimensional works and my three-dimensional objects," Segar said. "The two represent parallel imaginations, linked in their references to forms and spaces but wholly separate in their dependence on gravity."
Segar has exhibited work throughout the Northeast, in California, and in France. He served as a professor of fine art at Marlboro College for 20 years, until his retirement in 2018.
BMAC Chief Curator Mara Williams described Segar's sculptures as "powerfully built and pulsing with vitality" and said that his works on paper "reveal Segar's artistic preoccupation with the massing of forms and his exploration of oppositional forces."
The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center is located in the historic Union Station, at the intersection of Main Street and Routes 119 and 142. Major support is provided by its members and Allen Bros. Oil, Brattleboro Savings & Loan, C&S Wholesale Grocers, the Four Columns Inn, Sam's Outdoor Outfitters, and Whetstone Station Restaurant & Brewery.
