Join Guild Hall next Saturday, June 12
for a full day of incredible programs
in celebration of the opening day of ALEXIS ROCKMAN: SHIPWRECKS, curated by Executive Director Andrea Grover. The exhibition features new paintings and works on paper and looks at the world’s waterways as a network by which all of history has traveled. SHIPWRECKS is on view through July 26 and Gallery hours will be Thursday to Monday, 12-5PM and Saturday, 12-8PM.
Opening day begins with a Saturday Family Workshop focused on micro-plastic collages with Erica Cirino from 12-1:30PM. Kicking off at 6PM is our brand new series Guild Hall After Hours, featuring a live sound installation by artist Cliff Baldwin and a participatory art installation with Aurelio Torres.
Guild Hall After Hours continues at 7PM with Art and Cinema: A Conversation with Alexis Rockman and Carter Burwell, moderated by Andrea Grover, and the evening will close out at 8:30PM with a special outdoor screening of Ang Lee’s Life of Pi. The film will be introduced by Alexis Rockman, whose watercolor drawings were the first stage in the development of the fantastical, imaginary, and visually stunning world of the film.
Food and drink will be available for purchase from our new eAT Coffee Bar, and can be enjoyed in the lobby and on the grounds.
