GRACE Showcase
September 11 through October 5

A variety of artworks created by students who attended the summer GRACE (GRoton Accelerate Challenge Enrich program)

"Looking" by Kevin Pomerleau
October 14 through November 17

Kevin Pomerleau, an artist/printmaker from West Springfield, Massachusetts, brings works representing contemporary textiles to the Brodigan Gallery. Inspired by spaces throughout Western Massachusetts, the textiles are represented "both literally and as exaggerated motifs from my imagination," according to Mr. Pomerleau.

"My intention is to give the viewer a glimpse of these intimate instances without ever letting them fully enter the scenario," he said. "This work is my pursuit to understand the life that has come before me as well as prepare myself for what I have yet to learn."

The artist has shown his works at various locations, including at the International Print Center in New York. He currently is an administrator and curator for the Art Salon and a shop technician at Zea Mays Printmaking, both in Northhampton, Massachusetts.

Fall Exhibit

The Fat of the Land

Metal sculptures by Gints Grinbergs
September 16 through November 18

Sculptor Gints Grinbergs welds metal into natural forms and creates entire environments with them. "The Fat of the Land" transforms the de Menil Gallery into a world of metal flowers and found-object creatures, a geometric and contemporary homage to nature.

Grinbergs' sculptures—many of them large-scale, outdoor works—have been on display in various museums and galleries, including the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Massachusetts. The artist earned a BFA and a BA in architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design and also studied at Massachusetts College of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
