In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow: Outdoor Sculpture
Through Oct 31, 2019
Museum Grounds

Shelburne Museum is thrilled to present In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow, an outdoor installation featuring the evocative work of three contemporary artists on view across the museum’s expansive campus. These captivating sculptures complement and amplify one another through their shared engagement with fire, wind, and earth; subjects of fascination since antiquity. Exploring themes ranging from the anatomy of wildlife to the buoyancy of inflated steel forms, and the relationship between site-specific stone structures within the natural environment, Ebinger, Nava, and Snow push the boundaries of their respective materials and processes, revealing new experimentation with these classical elements.

Ink + Icons: Album Quilts from the Permanent Collection
Through Oct 31, 2019
Hat and Fragrance Textile Gallery

Drawing from Shelburne Museum’s extensive historic textile collections, Ink + Icons: Album Quilts from the Permanent Collection brings together 9 exquisite bedcovers to investigate the ways quiltmakers and communities created lasting material memories by reproducing meaningful symbols and taking advantage of technological developments like reliable indelible inks to tell their stories. Objects range from carefully inscribed friendship albums and botanical compendia to red-work storybook albums, the iconic “Major Ringgold” Baltimore Album quilt, and more.

Ogden Pleissner and the Working Landscape
Through Oct 31, 2019
Museum Grounds

Ogden Minton Pleissner (1905-1983) created hundreds of views of the American working landscape from the 1920s to the early 1980s. In step with larger trends in American narrative painting reflective of national events like the Great Depression (1929-1939) and the effects of New Deal era federal funding programs for American art, some compositions reveal ordered, productive sites, while others frame a rural landscape decimated by waves of technological change, economic hardship, and regional migration. View the scope of his work in the beautifully renovated Pleissner Gallery at Shelburne Museum.

Harold Weston: Freedom in the Wilds
March 23 - August 25, 2019
Colgate Gallery, Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education

Harold Weston: Freedom in the Wilds presents American 20th-century painter Harold Weston’s early Adirondack views and selections from the “Stone Series,” alongside diaries, letters, photographs, and related ephemera that make a case for the connections between spirit, nature, and Weston’s art. This is the first exhibition to pointedly illuminate the links between the artist’s written words – much in his distinctive, lyrical handwriting – with Weston’s prodigious body of work.
