This week we're presenting the Southern Vermont Arts Center, Hood Museum of Art and Hera Gallery

The three shows we're presenting this week look at the world through three different lenses. In Vermont see how different artists interpret their surroundings. In New Hampshire, see a culture's history represented in traditional artworks. And in Rhode Island see how two women shed light on their own lives and those of other women. 

Make sure to update your Artscope Magazine App in the app store and leave a review to get the complete experience for our September/October 2022 issue, out now!

As regulations regarding Covid-19 continue to change, please visit gallery or museum websites to confirm their current hours of operation.

Hood Museum of Art presents Maḏayin: Eight Decades of Aboriginal Australian Bark Painting from Yirrkala. This exhibit showcases over 90 paintings on eucalyptus that "chronicles the rise of a globally significant art movement as told from the perspective of the Yolŋu people." The paintings represent songlines, sung stories, through rich depictions, lovingly rendered in natural pigments. "The stories and the songlines take you back to the time of our ancestors," writes Wanyubi Marika, a prolific artist and ambassador of the Yolŋu people. The gallery is open Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. Hood Museum of Art is located at 6 East Wheelock Street, Hannover, NH.

Hera Gallery presents Body/Image, featuring the work of Tracy Weisman and Sonja Czekalski. These two, concurrent solo exhibits explore "changing body and societal expectations," and "womanhood and women’s bodies through the female gaze." Both women's work, from Weisman's fiber and mixed medium pieces to Czekalski's mixed media and sculptural assemblages interrogate society and culture from a woman's point of view. The gallery is open Wednesday through Friday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hera Gallery is located at 10 High Street, Wakefield, RI.
