This exhibit of rich mixed media nature based work, focuses on themes of memory, loss and the passage of time. Trees serve as a metaphor for the cycle of life; symbols of dormancy, growth, strength and renewal.
The themes for this exhibit revolve around domesticity, including topics such as identity, sexuality, gender and care giving. The tactile domestic inspired sculptures map the artist’s emotional and physical space, using a monotonous process in which she connects her internal and external landscapes.

In celebration of the relaunching of the last surviving wooden whaleship, Lyman Allyn presents Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan.
The exhibition, which runs from September 21 through June 8, 2014, will look at how whaling—its myths and reality, risk and reward—left its mark on Connecticut and American identity.
In the 1800s, friends and family gathered on the docks to wish “greasy luck” for a successful voyage to departing whaleships.
To most people, whales were mysterious creatures. Yet whaling was big business.
The thousands of barrels of oil the whalers brought home made ports like New London and Mystic some of the wealthiest places in the young nation, supporting a wide array of dockside occupations.
he Glass House is pleased to announce its first site-specific exhibition: SNAP! by E.V. Day. Conceived for the building known as Da Monsta - designed by Philip Johnson in 1995 as a visitor center and now a gallery - SNAP! interprets the pavilion's peculiar geometry and atmosphere both inside and out. Day has roped the exterior of Da Monsta with massive climbing webs and populated the interior with an ensemble of recent sculpture that tease out the noir qualities of Johnson's late work.
