The Chapel Art Center is hosting two concurrent exhibitions this spring season.
Lotte Jacobi’s America: Images of Her Adopted Land
Lotte Jacobi’s America: Images of Her Adopted Land features the work of renowned German-born photographer Lotte Jacobi, who made New Hampshire her home in 1955. Her friendship with New Hampshire photographer Gary Samson led to the establishment of the Lotte Jacobi Archive at the University of New Hampshire’s Dimond Library. This exhibition features a selection of Lotte Jacobi’s photographs from the Milne Special Collections and Archives, featured in an exhibition last year at the University of New Hampshire Museum, curated by Gary Samson. This subset of works presents an opportunity to celebrate both the treasure of the Lotte Jacobi Archive, and the artist’s collaborative friendship with New Hampshire Artist Laureate Gary Samson.
Lotte Jacobi’s America will be on view March 20 through May 1, 2020.
Pathways to Home: Vision and Narration
Pathways to Home: Vision and Narration presents a selection of works from the permanent collection to complete this year’s focus on interpretive intentions in the curating process. Drawing upon a wide range of art objects, this exhibition reflects upon the relationship between the artist’s vision, the viewer, and the subtle narrative in works of art. Engaging the viewer with remarkable visual content, each work opens a path to an interesting dialogue and new resolve.
Pathways to Home will be on view March 20 through May 1, 2020.
