ON VIEW IN THE HOUSE

ARIANA VAETH: NEW WORK
Through December 23, 2020
Admission by appointment only. Make an appointment online.
https://www.lyndensculpturegarden.org/exhibitions/ariana-vaeth-new-work

Ariana Vaeth’s autobiographical paintings are rooted in intimacy. They chronicle formative relationships, honoring the people most important to her in a given moment. In the main gallery, Vaeth displays seven recent paintings. These self-portraits, mostly with companions, find Vaeth participating in the rituals and inhabiting the environments of close friendship: talking, hanging out in kitchens and bathrooms, curled up on a couch. Outside the gallery, Vaeth’s love of pattern overflows in a series of 12 x 12-inch paintings exploring pattern and texture.

The Lynden is venturing back into more in-person programming. All in-person programs take place outdoors. For the safety of all concerned, you must register in advance. Masks are required and social distancing guidelines will be followed.

Different themes will connect Lynden’s environment and learning opportunities with children’s interests, broadening their sense of place as they expand their connections with the natural world and one another.
