a solo exhibition

Stonington features works by Wiyot artist Rick Bartow (1946-2016) this March with a solo exhibition of his haunting and uncanny paintings, monotypes, and drypoint etchings, many of which were created using hand-crafted Japanese paper in collaboration with master printer Seiichi Hiroshima. This exhibition will explore the symbolism of coyotes, dogs, and wolves as tricksters and omens within Bartow’s body of work and encourage new ways of seeing. We look forward to showcasing these evocative and thrilling works.

Journey to Alaska–The Ways of the North: Heather Johnston

a solo exhibition

This April, Stonington will be showcasing the work of Unangan (Aleut)/Alutiiq artist Heather Johnston. Johnston has said that her work directly responds to her surrounding environment, and that she uses everyday experiences as a starting point for her pieces. Often, her works depict and converse with ordinary objects, such as maps or sheet music–objects that, outside of the context of being a framed “piece of art” in a gallery, might go unnoticed.
