Come celebrate the month of March and two of its most famous symbols—the wild weather and the Hare—this month in the Gallery at Washington Street. Originally inspired by English musician Maddy Prior’s “The Fabled Hare,” this exhibit’s themes espouse shapeshifting; the Hare’s endurance amid danger; Carroll’s March Hare; a Cheshire smile; and wild, oppressive weather giving way to the first signs of Spring.
March is a favorite month of Gretchen Graham, the exhibit’s producer. “March is a wild time, a larger-than-life time, a magic month with an edge. Its weather, weird air and fantastic light; the sense that something big is happening all around, and even in, you and that if you don't pay attention and get on board, you'll be left behind—I love it all. It's a physically uncomfortable month, and a spiritually stirring month. I’ve never lived in a place without the extreme transitions that March embodies, and wouldn’t wish to!”
This multi-media exhibit features photography, illustration, painting, and poetry by Tara Lumb, Vanessa Thompson, Lee Kilpatrick, Peg Graham, Gretchen Graham, Kristen Packard, Jill Comer, and Erin Zuniga. The opening reception is Saturday March 14th, but if you’re late, you’re late, for this very important date, don’t worry! There will be a closing reception at the end of the month, from 5–6 p.m. Or you can view the work later that evening during a concert in the gallery, with music by Alex Lumb.
