Organized by painter John Newsom, “EXPEDITION” features works by a diverse group of artists, many of whom have never shown in Vermont before: Donald Baechler, André Butzer, Ann Craven, Matt Dillon, Inka Essenhigh, Torben Giehler, April Gornik, Andy Hope 1930, Richard Jacobs, Michael Kagan, John McAllister, John Newsom, Erik Parker, Raymond Pettibon, Alexis Rockman, Ouattara Watts, and Wendy White.
“To discover the new is what we as painters strive for daily,” said Newsom. “This is the ‘call to adventure,’ the starting point of inspiration and wonderment. The 17 artists in “EXPEDITION” heed that call and invite you to join them on their journeys.”
“EXPEDITION” marks the first time that artwork by Matt Dillon, well known as an actor and filmmaker, has been included in a museum exhibition.
