Mathers Museum Exhibits

Cherokee Craft, 1973
Cherokee Craft, 1973 offers a snapshot of craft production among the Eastern Band Cherokee at a key moment in both an ongoing Appalachian craft revival and the specific cultural and economic life of the Cherokee people in western North Carolina. The exhibition showcases woodcarvings, masks, ceramics, finger woven textiles, basketry, and dolls. The works presented are all rooted in Cherokee cultural tradition but all also bear the imprint of the specific individuals who crafted them and the particular circumstances in which these craftspeople made and circulated their handwork. Exhibits runs through June 12th.

MONSTERS! are extraordinary or unnatural beings that challenge the predictable fabric of everyday life. This exhibition looks at monsters from around the world, discovering who they are and what purposes they serve in various cultures, as different images of monstrousness emerge from the dark recesses of human imagination. Exhibit is open through December 18th, 2016.

Gallery is open 9am-4:30pm Tues-Fri and 1pm-4:30pm Sat/Sun. Sponsored by Fall 2015 Themester @Work: The Nature of Labor on a Changing Planet.

Featured Exhibit: Hattie Stanton & Thom Robinson

Brown County Art Guild

Hattie Stanton & Thom Robinson will be the featured artists at the Brown County Art Guild during the month of June.

Thom C. Robinson, OPA grew up in Flint, Michigan. He was raised in an artistically inclined family—his mother enjoyed painting, and his father practiced woodworking. Robinson attended the Flint Institute of Art. Following his studies, Thom joined the Navy. While stationed in San Diego, he traveled extensively, painting Southwest desert and mountain scenes.

After his Navy stint in southern California, Thom and his family were returning to Michigan from California, when they stopped to visit family in Bedford, the heart of Indiana’s limestone country. Intrigued by the southern Indiana landscape, Robinson changed his plans and settled down to paint the Hoosier hills. With just a knapsack and the naked eye, Robinson paints outside, in all kinds of weather, any time of day and hikes or boats for miles to find scenes that inspire him.Thom has been a member of the Brown County Art Guild since 2011.

Hattie Stanton was born in the coal mining region of the Southeastern hills of Kentucky in 1937. She moved to Richmond, Indiana in 1953 and graduated from B.S.U. with a B.S. in art and English and a Masters in German. She now lives in Muncie, Indiana. Hattie began painting in 1995 and is one of the painters included in the book Hoosier Painters of the 21st Century by Mark Butterfield. Hattie has been a member of the Brown County Art Guild since 2006.

Located in the heart of Nashville, the Brown County Art Guild is open Tuesday-Saturday from 11-5 and Sunday 12-4. A reception for the artists will be held on Saturday, June 11, from 5-8 p.m. Pianist Cheryl Kaldahl will perform. For more information, call 812.988.618 or visit www.browncountyartguild.org
