Artist Timothy Segar to give free talk at BMAC

BRATTLEBORO — Former Marlboro College visual arts faculty member Timothy Segar, whose artwork is currently on view at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in the exhibit “Character Development,” will give a free talk at BMAC on Thursday, Aug. 1, at 7:30 p.m.

“Character Development” is a two-part exhibit consisting of Segar's steel sculptures (in BMAC's Rubinstein-Freed Sculpture Garden through Nov. 5) and works on paper (in the South Gallery through Sept. 23).

“My practice as an artist has hinged on the dynamic between my two-dimensional works and my three-dimensional objects,” Segar said in a news release. “The two represent parallel imaginations, linked in their references to forms and spaces but wholly separate in their dependence on gravity.”

Segar has exhibited work throughout the Northeast, in California, and in France. He holds an M.F.A. in sculpture and an M.A. in fine arts from the University of California at Berkeley, as well as a B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design. He served as a professor of fine art at Marlboro College for 20 years, until his retirement in 2018.

BMAC Chief Curator Mara Williams described Segar's sculptures as “powerfully built and pulsing with vitality” and said that his works on paper “reveal Segar's artistic preoccupation with the massing of forms and his exploration of oppositional forces.”
