Visual arts and shows

BRATTLEBORO Artist Talk: Fafnir Adamites' Interfere (with)": Adamits discusses the ways in which her sculptures act as "monuments and reminders of trauma, intuition, and the legacy of emotional turmoil."

However, the use of highly tactile materials and repetitive, contemplative techniques allows the work to function as a tool for acknowledging, examining, and making sense of painful memories and experiences, thereby diffusing them." . 7 p.m. (This installation is on view through 3/7/2020).
