Drury Gallery

A wing of Whittemore Theater, the Drury Gallery was designed by architectural sculptor Michael Singer while he was Marlboro’s visiting artist. Installations by Marlboro students and faculty and a wide range of national and international artists fill the Drury each year. It also serves as a visually compelling space for lectures and literary readings.

The Drury Gallery is open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday through Friday while the college is in session. For more information, call 802-257-4333.

Cocoons

Art show by senior Kirsten Wiking
On Exhibit Sunday, May 11 to Wednesday, May 14
Reception Wednesday, May 14 at 4pm

Drawing from Japanese culture and aesthetics, Kirsten Wiking makes work that seems not of this world. She uses the cocoon as both object and environment, as a portal to the mysterious. Removed from ordinary time, the cocoon appears suspended in a state in which everything is transmutable.

Kirsten writes, "I imagine that beneath the surface of my everyday environment is a world supernatural. I long to discover, like Alice, a doorway to this hidden plane, and exit from the ordinary. This daydream informs my attraction to Japan, a place I have lived and to which I will soon return, where existence is shaped by fantasy. There, young women especially use fantasy to envision other realities for themselves in response to rigid gender roles."

Kirsten graduated in May 2014 with a degree in visual arts and Asian studies, as well as a certificate for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
