(Im)Possibilities of Landscape
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | When we think of the Stone house, we visualize both the interior—where Robert Frost lived and worked—and exterior—the environment which informed many of his most famous works.
(Im)Possibilities of Landscape will explore representations of landscape, domesticity, and sense of place. This project is motivated by an interest in providing accessibility to Bennington’s unique collection of art; selected pieces, like Wallace Putnam’s 1959 “Horse and Cart on Beach”, and Charles Burchfield’s 1915 studies for paintings, diverge from characteristic representations of Bennington’s collection. The shared history between Frost and Bennington College, which dates back to the 1930s and spans into the future, allows for a reexamination of the possibilities of both the work and the space.
The show will be up May 9-September 1, with an opening reception (see above for date and time).
