In this sparkling review of the Colby Museum of Art’s Bernard Langlais exhibition, art critic Sebastian Smee of the Boston Globe lauds the “brilliant, slyly accomplished” Langlais, who challenges assumptions about serious art with his folksy wood animal sculptures.

Curator for Special Projects Hannah Blunt and Director and Chief Curator Sharon Corwin organized not only the exhibition but also the distribution of Langlais’s work throughout Maine, documented in the newly launched Langlais Art Trail website.

Smee is the author of six books and won a 2011 Pulitzer Prize in Criticism.
