Marquand Mini Exhibit
Sept 2019

Many students, including me, associate September with the beginning of another academic year, but Marquand’s newest exhibit is timely for more reasons other than the end to summer vacation. Here is a collection of photographs and paintings put together to celebrate farmers everywhere. Amid the business of classes and the excitement of reconnecting with old friends, it’s easy to forget that as we transition into autumn, harvest season approaches. How often are we idle enough to consider what’s beyond the things we see on our plates, like the curious stages in the life of an apple that grows on a tree and of the person who picks it, too? Or how it feels to work the land side by side in the hot sun tending plants and harvesting the fresh food we eat? Ever wonder about the intricate geometry required to frame and raise a barn by hand? One of my favorite images from the selections here can be found in Jamie Wyeth’s (1946-   ) book, which presents paintings from his exhibition Farm Work. About his experience of portraying an animal he says, “Pigs stare at you while you paint them. They have very human eyes.” How about that?
