This exhibition brings together the work of Williams College art faculty Mike Glier (American, b. 1953) and Amy Podmore.
Painter Mike Glier’s project “Along a Long Line” refers to his journey to four separate places along the 70th line of longitude: the Arctic circle, the rainforest of Ecuador, the subtropical environment of the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the city of New York. The exhibition features 44 of Glier’s paintings, produced using the en plein air technique employed by both French and American expressionists. Alongside the painted works are a collection of photographs, blog entries, and stories from his journey.
“Predicaments” is a selection of new work by Amy Podmore and includes a range of sculpture, video, and installation. Podmore animates the bizarre, ironic, and perplexing facets of life through her often humorous, yet poignant, work. Often, her art flip-flops between the absurd and the rational, the somber and the whimsical.
