BMAC presents online talk by artist Michael Abrams

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC) will present a free online talk by artist Michael Abrams on Thursday, Jan. 6, at 7 p.m.

He will welcome viewers to his Jamaica studio via Zoom and Facebook Live for a conversation about his installation “Arcadia Rediscovered” and his work as a landscape painter. Register at

Abrams, who works primarily in oil on canvas, panel, and prepared paper, “is known for misty, layered vistas suffused with light,” said BMAC Chief Curator Mara Williams, who invited Abrams to create an installation for the museum that would surround the viewer. “His ability to capture atmospheric conditions imbues each painting with such tactility that the mist seems to extend between the painting and the viewer.”

Since Abrams' move to Vermont over a decade ago, the vistas of the Green Mountains, the unique quality of light, and the richness of the atmosphere have become integral to his work.

As described in a news release, “these experiences are layered upon bucolic images of the fertile land, scenic beauty, and awe-inspiring sunsets of his childhood home, perched above the Hudson River Valley.”

Abrams' works are in numerous collections throughout the United States.

“Arcadia Rediscovered” is on view at BMAC through Saturday, March 5.
