    Lamont Gallery at Phillips Exeter Academy to Host[E]MISSION[S]: CRITICAL  
     
    On view March 29-May 18, 2019
     
     
    Exeter, NH (March 19, 2019) — Phillips Exeter Academy’s Lamont Gallery will feature the work of four artists: photographer Evan Anderman (Colorado), mixed media artist Lucinda Bliss (New Hampshire), painter Tom Hall (Maine), and sculptor Jim Sardonis (Vermont).
     
    [E]MISSION[S]: CRITICAL is an environmentally-themed exhibition featuring contemporary artists reflecting on the state of our natural surroundings in light of climate change. Through an intertwining presentation of diverse mediums, these four artists share different aesthetic perspectives: from a ‘macro’ view of the planet and her resources photographed in Colorado from the air at 3,000 feet, down to the more ‘micro’: intimate and personal journeys through the woods and waters of northern New England. By the experiences reflected in these works, the artists offer compelling personal insights into the drastically transforming environment that we all share.
