MARLBORO, VT - A series of recent paintings and prints by
artist Joel Janowitz is featured in the exhibit "Freefall,"
which will run at Marlboro College's Drury Gallery from Monday,
March 27 to Friday, April 14. A gallery talk with the artist will
take place at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 5.
Loosely based on images of teens swimming at a quarry, the series combines "humor and anxiety, exuberance and terror, depending on one's point of view of water and height," says Janowitz. The recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, Janowitz teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and has taught at Clark, Harvard, and Princeton.
Janowitz's paintings, drawings, and prints have been exhibited in museums and galleries across the country, including, in 2000, a one-person exhibition of "New Work" at the Bernard Toale Gallery in Boston and a group show called "Visual Memoirs" at the Rose Art Museum in Waltham, Massachusetts. His work can be seen in collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Brooklyn Museum.
The gallery, which is fully accessible, is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday through Friday. For more information, please call (802) 257-4333. The Marlboro College events calendar can be found on-line at www.marlboro.edu/calendar/calendar.html.
