Portraits of Emerging Adults
August 18 – October 26, 2014
Artist Talk Friday, September 26 5-6:30 with performances by Dana Yeaton’s Playwriting 1 class
“Passing Through” features 17 over life sized oil portraits paired with audio portraits of seventeen young people who have all come through Middlebury for one reason or another. Ten of the paintings are housed in the Jackson Gallery; the seven remaining paintings are in the Lower Lobby of the Mahaney Center for the Arts at Middlebury College.
The young subjects of Kate Gridley’s astonishing new exhibit will have a chance to speak their minds. But not the real life subjects who posed for Kate, and whose interviews can be heard on her website; instead the Jackson Gallery will become a performance space for short monologues inspired by the portraits, and written by Middlebury College students in Dana Yeaton’s Playwriting 1 class. They will be joined by the artist herself, who will add her own color commentary.
