Atmospheric Water Exhibition Reception

May 10, 5:30 PM7:30 PM


Atmospheric Water, the L.C. Bates Museum’s 2019 summer exhibition, will open Friday, May 10. A free public opening reception is set for 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Atmospheric Water will showcase representations of the Maine landscape as it is affected by water. Leaving aside depictions of the ocean, lakes, rivers, and streams, this exhibition will consider the many forms water takes as atmosphere transmutes it so it can, in turn, transform the landscape. Displayed in a non-traditional museum with a strong focus on natural history, works in a variety of mediums and styles from contemporary Maine artists will be featured, giving visitors a fresh perspective on how local artists view and portray nature in their home state.

Co-curated by Colby students Alison Obstler ’19 and Sarah Rossien ’19 under the supervision of Professor Véronique Plesch and organized with generous support from the Colby College Center for the Arts and Humanities, this exhibition is on view through October 15.
