Marilu Swett: Bump and Swag at BSG

May 8 - June 9

In her exhibition Bump and Swag, Marilu Swett’s new work reflects recent stresses in the natural and cultural realms. Biological entities have physical reactions to stress. People think about hitting the road.
Walking the wooded hills of New England and observing the flora have long influenced Swett’s artwork. Last summer she had the opportunity to work in rural Minnesota. The heavily worked agricultural landscape, contemporary farming practices, and old and new farm equipment evoked new imagery for the artist. Proximity to freight trains continuously hauling goods provoked curiosity about train travel. Recent ongoing political news made those thoughts of travel appealing. These themes are embedded in the work featured in Bump and Swag.

Preview and Artist’s Talk: Wednesday, May 8, 6-7:30 pm

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 11, 3-6 pm

First Friday Reception: June 7, 6-9 pm
