The ArtiFacts of Life
May 12 noon-5pm May 13 Noon- 5pm with a reception 5-7pm in the Jackson Gallery at Town Hall Theater
An African sword, a perfume bottle, a tattered Chinese lantern. What stories do these and other “regular” objects tell? The ArtiFacts of Life is a mini-museum at the intersection of art and storytelling that showcases objects with compelling stories contributed by regular folks. This time, the focus is on serendipity: objects and stories about chance, coincidence and luck.

The Jackson Gallery is located in the lower level of Town Hall Theater, a community and cultural venue located in the center of Middlebury.

The Jackson Gallery is pleased to present Full Circles: Emerging Images Within Handmade Paper, a solo exhibition by Deborah Sharpe-Lunstead opening May 20, 2016. This collection of pulp paintings made with hand made paper invites the viewer to travel through the seasons and the landscape, from fields, forests and farmland to waterways and the seaside. The process of creating a pulp painting begins with water and plants, which become paper and fibers in the paintings. The show explores the cycles of the seasons; the wonders of plants, which just keep giving; and water, which is necessary for plants and paper and all living things.
