Rodin: Truth, Form, Life at Fairfield University Art Museum
in Fairfield, Connecticut through December 21

Auguste Rodin, Study for Torso of Walking Man, 187879.

Fairfield University Art Museum is showing Rodin: Truth, Form, Life through December 21. This exhibition displays 22 bronze sculptures by renowned sculptor Auguste Rodin, who lived and worked in the second half of the 19th century into the early 20th century. He rejected the academic traditions of "proper" art in his time and made art in pursuit of his belief that art should be true to nature. He used a variety of materials to create his sculptures, but all utilized modeling to emphasize his personal response to the subject and explore the vitality of the human spirit. His sculptures are fragments by design: Many of the works displayed in Rodin: Truth, Form, Life are heads, hands and torsos lacking the rest of the body. Rodin embraced these fragments as complete works in their own right. His unique take on art and sculpture heavily influenced the development of 20th-century modernist sculpture. Though Rodin's works are over one hundred years old, they still have the power to influence artists and captivate viewers. The theme of human vitality in his sculptures is something truly timeless. Fairfield University Art Museum is located at 1073 North Benson Road in Fairfield, Connecticut and is open TuesdaySaturday 11:00 a.m.4 p.m. For more information, visit

Hidden Treasures 5 at Phillips Exeter Academy's Lamont Gallery
in Exeter, New Hampshire through December 14

Lamont Gallery

Currently on view at Phillips Exeter Academy's Lamont Gallery through December 14 is Hidden Treasures 5. This exhibit features the work of Phillips Exeter Academy employees, faculty, and students across departments. The pieces span across media as well, including stained glass, watercolor, photography, fiber arts and more. The artists use their different media to reflect on exploration, expression, and the role of the arts at Phillips Exeter Academy. For some artists, these themes are inextricably tied together. Fermín Pérez-Andréu, instructor in Modern Languages, shares excerpts from his project Historietas de la Historia, which will eventually serve Spanish students. Also present throughout the exhibition is a sense of mindfulness and intention with each piece. Kelly McGahie, a "mindful adventurer" who's worked in Student Activities for twenty years, uses landscape photography to highlight the peacefulness of the natural world and how it invites contemplation and reflection. Many of the artists in Hidden Treasures 5 have pursued opportunities to learn and experiment within a reflective art-making community, resulting in creative, heartfelt pieces. Hidden Treasures 5 brings together a vibrant community of artists and reveals the treasures that they've created. Phillips Exeter Academy's Lamont Gallery is located at 20 Main Street in Exeter, New Hampshire and is open TuesdayFriday 9:00 a.m.5:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m.4:00 p.m. For more information, please visit

Draw the Line and Highlights from the Permanent Collection: Nocturne at The Art Complex Museum

Art Complex Museum
Henri Eugene Le Sidaner, The Music Pavilion at Versailles, Moonlight, 1921, oil on canvas.

The Art Complex has two exhibitions on view through January 12, 2020. Draw the Line features drawings in a variety of media, from pencil on paper to graphite on wood. The artists in this exhibition include Shona Macdonald, Shane Savage-Rumbaugh, Lesley Cohen, Zach Horn, John Roman, Michele Lauriat, Cobi Moules, Stephen Cipullo, Brian Grimson and Tim McDonald. Although each artist approaches drawing differently, they are united by the use of a simple mark as a point of contact, the first of many that take shape around each artist's idea. Highlights from the Permanent Collection: Nocturne is a compilation of Nocturne paintings curated by Collections Curator, Juila Courtney. "Nocturne paintings" were originally defined as those that depict scenes evocative of the night, or portray subjects in a veil of light or at twilight. Nowadays, the term tends to refer to any paintings of nighttime scenes. Nocturne paintings are moody and alluring, capturing the unique tranquility that nighttime brings. Nocturne features works by a variety of artists across different countries and times, including Lowell Birge Harrison, Suzanne Hodes, Kawase Hasui, George Inness, Johan Barthold Jongkind and Martin Lewis. Both Draw the Line and Highlights from the Permanent Collection: Nocturne show artists at the top of their craft, displaying their evocative and finely-crafted works. The Art Complex Museum is located at 189 Alden Street in Duxbury, Massachusetts and is open WednesdaySunday 1:004:00 p.m. For more information, please visit

What Comes Next: Imagining Future Worlds

Juror: Allison Maria Rodriguez

April 6May 1, 2020

Deadline to apply: February 9, 2020

What does the future hold?
The Chandler Gallery invites artists to submit work that in some way imagines, depicts, explores or suggests a future. Artists are encouraged to interpret this idea in many waysfrom creating a whole new universe to illustrating the possible outcomes of particular social and political trajectories. Is this vision of the future idealistic and poetic or dark and apocalyptic? Is there another perspective of our future that is less divisive, gentler and sustainable? Or can we imagine a tomorrow that is so far removed from today, that all we know is erased and forgotten? All mediums are welcome including works on paper, prints, drawings, photographs, collages, books, paintings, and sculpture. Video/moving image work is also welcomed and will be looped on a screen in the gallery. If you are a moving image artist and prefer your work to play alone you must supply your own AV equipment. Work should not exceed 24 inches on the longest side, no matter the medium.
