Fans of American folk art will be happy to know that a new exhibit, “Warren Kimble All-American Artist: An Eclectic Retrospective,” is on display through mid-October at the Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury.
The exhibit highlights the career of the internationally-known Brandon-based artist, who came to prominence for his folk art, but since has concentrated on diverse themes, inspired in part by his residencies at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson. These themes include his “Sunshine” series, his “Widows of War” paintings and sculpture and more recent “House of Cards” and “Into the Box,” which featured open faced boxes with found objects and architectural assemblages.
In addition, Kimble and his wife Lorraine have agreed to display their personal collection of folk art by other artists, which will be located throughout the Sheldon’s historic rooms, providing a unique opportunity to enter the private world of Warren Kimble.
The Sheldon Museum exhibit runs through Oct. 18. The museum is located at One Park Street in downtown Middlebury across from the Ilsley Library. Museum hours: Tues.-Sat. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Sun. 1-5 p.m.; Admission is $5 for adults; $3 youth (6-18); $4.50 seniors; $12 family.. For more information, call 388-2117 or visit www.HenrySheldonMuseum.org.
