'Focus on the Sheldon: Five-Point Perspective'

When: March 7-May 13 2017

“The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled,” wrote the late author and art critic John Berger. What can we learn from studying artifacts, next to pictures of those very same objects? What objects capture whose attention, and how? This exhibition at the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury offers the results of an original experiment in pairing five local artists with the institution’s storied collection. Suki Fredericks, Paul Gamba, Kate Gridley, Kirsten Hoving and Eric Nelson each trained their camera’s lens on objects that appealed to them in some way, and revealed something about themselves in the process.
