Exhibit Announcements



Circle, Sinew, Fly: Shapes of Grace
opens at the Latchis Theater in Brattleboro on Friday, February 6, 2015 during Gallery Walk. The exhibit will stay in the main theater gallery until after the New England Center for Circus Arts annual Circus Spectacular on February 28th and March 1st.

The photographs are the result of a school year I spent getting to know the professional track students at the NECCA. They trace the physicality, love, determination, beauty and pain the students demonstrated as they developed and polished their technique and performance skills. The accompanying sestina by Melissa Whalen Haertsch captures practice studio dynamics in a poetic form chosen for its rigor and obsessive quality.




Love, Labor, Worship: the people of Basin Farm will open in the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 11 a.m. The exhibit includes photographs and writing made during a two year period beginning in April of 2012.

Basin Farm is part of a much larger, far-flung Messianic community called the Twelve Tribes. Forty people live together at the 120 acre farm in Bellows Falls, VT. They grow organic produce, bake bread, make yogurt, operate a commercial woodworking business, raise children, and devote themselves to their Messiah and master, Yashuah.
