Art Costa: Sounds Deep
On view October 14 through March 9, 2024
Brattleboro Museum & Art Center
Brattleboro, Vermont

Ceramics, textiles, fantastical cardboard sculpture — the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) welcomes museum members and the public to celebrate the opening of four new exhibits on Saturday, October 14th. Each of the exhibits makes “unique use of materials and methods,” according to BMAC Director of Exhibitions Sarah Freeman. They all “attempt to make sense of our world and our place in it, whether that’s the physical world around us, or our own interior worlds.”

The group exhibit uses the seemingly simple medium of paper to express ideas and images from nature, ritual, cultural exchange, and consumerism. Art Costa uses reclaimed cardboard to shed light on the deep sea, where so much remains unknown and undiscovered.

There is surprise, and hope, within each of the exhibits, Freeman observes. “To put something you have made out into the world is brave, and inherently optimistic,” she says. “I think people will see lots of things that provoke questions and conversation.”
