Tim Segar: Character Development
Saturday, June 22, 2019 - 5:30pm • Brattleboro Museum and Art Center
Part of six new exhibits opening at BMAC, this exhibit by longtime visual arts faculty member and now faculty emeritus Tim Segar consists of steel sculptures on view outside the museum (May 1 – November 1, 2019) and works on paper displayed in the South Gallery (June 22 – September 23, 2019). According to BMAC chief curator Mara Williams, "Segar’s two-dimensional works on paper are not preparatory drawings for his sculptures; they are fully realized works in their own right. They reveal sculpture Segar’s artistic preoccupation with the massing of forms and his exploration of oppositional forces. The accumulating shapes develop organically and pulse across the paper surface as deeply satisfying abstract compositions, each retaining the energy of the artist’s hand in every mark and gesture." All are welcome to a free reception celebrating the opening of this and five other new exhibits. At other times all Marlboro students, staff, and faculty with ID get free admission to the museum.
