Learn more about our current exhibit featuring the works of artists Angie Quick and Heather Verplanke.

The paintings of Angie Quick and Heather Verplanke investigate how the physical body is studied in contemporary painting; more specifically, how bodies are rendered and understood in terms of portraiture, symbolism, and digital imagery. On the one hand, Quick’s large-scale oil works represent mounds of abstracted flesh that reconsiders the traditional nude body in recent painting; on the other hand, Verplanke’s recent portraiture employs symbolic devices to animate her sitters while imparting layers of meaning to their lived history. Here is the body seen in other ways through other worlds, turned inside out, then put back together again.

The tour will also include the history of the house and it's many eras!
