One of the perks of working at Colby is being a few hundred yards from a world-class art museum. From Richard Serra to Winslow Homer. Whistler to Warhol. And Bevin Engman.
Engman is a still-life painter, and Colby faculty member, who recently spent time re-exploring her childhood haunts on outer Cape Cod, in and around Truro. The result is a collection of new paintings now on exhibit at Colby. It's a remarkable body of work. Luminescent. Succinct. I started at the beginning and worked by way around. And then I went around again. And again. Landscapes, but not quite. Studies of the light at the horizon. Rain on a marsh. The wavelength of waves. Great stuff. Through May 31. Check it out.
