Ongoing Exhibits at the Colby College Museum of Art

February 11–April 24

Garry Mitchell
Every year the museum features a one-person exhibition by a member of the Art Department studio faculty. This year the museum presents 25 recent paintings by Garry Mitchell, who has taught at Colby for seven years. Mitchell’s paintings combine a calligraphic quality of line and atmospheric space with his unique sensibility as a colorist.

February 24–April 24

Richard Serra: Large Scale Prints
(Organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art)
Richard Serra is among the most ambitious, influential, and challenging artists working today, producing sculpture as well as two-dimensional works that are rigorously abstract, physically unsentimental, and aesthetically confrontational. 4-5-6, the three-part steel sculpture that frames the museum entrance, has become a touchstone of the museum’s identity since its installation in 2000. In addition to his monumental, site-specific steel sculptures, the artist has also pursued a parallel body of work as a printmaker. This exhibition brings together 37 of his large-scale prints executed between 1972 and 2001, principally drawn from the collection of Colby Trustee Paul J. Schupf.

The Colby College Museum of Art is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free, and the museum is accessible to people with disabilities. For more information call 207-872-3228 or visit http:www.colby.edu/museum/.
