PUTNEY: Landmark College to Open Fine Arts Gallery

Inaugural Art Gallery Open House to Feature the Work of Artists Tim Segar and Craig Stockwell
OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, March 6th, from 4 – 6 p.m.
EXHIBITION RUNS: March 6th through April 20, 2013

PUTNEY – The Landmark College Fine Arts Gallery’s opening reception, featuring the work of sculptor Tim Segar and painter Craig Stockwell, will be held Wednesday, March 6th from 4 – 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Both Segar and Stockwell will be on hand to talk about their work.

Tim Segar is a sculptor trained at Rhode Island School of Design and UC Berkeley. Segar began his career making ceramic sculpture focused on theatrical groupings of forms called “Box Theaters.” After a period of working in steel and bronze also displayed in staged groupings, he has been involved with finding intersections between sculpture and drawing. The work on display at Landmark College, made of steam-bent arcs of oak and ash, becomes at once a drawing and a sculpture. He teaches at Marlboro College.

Craig Stockwell
began his studies at Dartmouth College and Rhode Island School of Design. His work has been widely reviewed, including by The New York Times, The Village Voice, Newsday, and The Soho News. He has shown his drawings and paintings extensively in New England and nationally, including the Nielsen Gallery in Boston, the Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts, Marlboro College, New England College, the Fitchburg Art Museum, The Painting Center in New York, and the Spheris Gallery, among other venues. His work is in many permanent private and public collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Stockwell lives in Keene, New Hampshire where he teaches at Keene State College.

The exhibit runs from March 6th through April 20th. The Landmark College Fine Arts Gallery is open to the public Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. through 6 p.m.

The Art Department is excited to launch this gallery as both a place to showcase curatorial projects in contemporary art and as a dynamic pedagogical tool supporting its curriculum.
