A collection of places where art inspires and lives in each of us. Whether wandering a gallery or sitting on your front porch, art is there if you look closely. Let this inspire you to look a little longer at the beauty and awe in the everyday-ness of life.

Chad Erpelding & Megan Moore: Prizewinners of Boundless April 1 - 22, 2013 Opening Reception Friday, April 5, 5 to 7 pm
Please join us this Friday from 5 to 7 pm for the opening reception for Chad Erpelding & Megan Moore: Prizewinners of the 2012 National Exhibition Boundless: New Works in Contemporary Printmaking, with Juror Anne Coffin.
Chad Erpelding: Sister Cities Chad Erpelding's work investigates the physical and mental spread of culture on a global scale through references to maps and charts. He is interested in the movement of people, business, and organizations, and the effect this has on contemporary perceptions of place. He emphasizes globalization's role in producing greater connectivity between increasingly complex environments through political systems, individual travel, and international business organizations.
Megan Moore Megan Moore's work is an investigation of the effect of restructuring a collection that occurs through the process of collage. Her collages contain representational elements of plants found in the 'natural world,' that through a process of sampling, deconstruction and reconstruction, come together to form something new.
Spring is the season of fresh beginnings. The new artworks in The Aldrich's galleries, like the flowers blooming around town, present new forms to pique our curiosity, and the Museum's current calendar offers a bouquet of programs that provide access to and interpretation of the exhibitions on view. The Extreme Drawing projects feature a variety of works which explore this universal means of mark making. The Extreme Draw On! community festival is in full swing, offering an exciting line-up for visitors of all ages. Plan your visit today!
