This exhibition brings to the Quick Center a new and diverse view of women and religion. McKenzie explores diversity, children and symbolic imagery in her work.
In her paintings, McKenzie pays tribute to women as sacred individuals, leaders for positive change, and mothers.
Reproductions of McKenzie’s art are regularly carried in demonstrations and marches across the United States as visual testaments in support of racial equality and as a voice against prejudice, women’s rights and the LGBTQ community.
McKenzie has received many awards throughout her career and most recently was the subject “The Divine Journey: a Painter’s Mission,” a short documentary about the artist’s work and the creation of a commission for Memorial Church at Harvard University.
The artist will visit campus for a gallery talk at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, which will be followed by dessert with the artist at 7 p.m. Both events will be at the Quick Center and are free and open to the public.
Originally from New York City, McKenzie now lives and works in northeast Vermont. Learn more about the artist via her website, www.janetmckenzie.com.

Artist's Gallery Talk: 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18
In “Adrift,” Michael Kunzinger presents photographs of water, light and color. The three elements isolate and at the same time come together to present the essence of abstraction.
“I look for images in reflections that occur on the surface of water,” said Kunzinger. “Although the dreamlike designs are reminiscent of modern abstract paintings, they are entirely real.
"The effect is achieved by a combination of ripples in the water, the angle of light, water clarity, and other factors. No oils or digital touch-ups are used; the process begins and ends organically with the art created around us by nature.”
Kunzinger will visit the Quick Center on Tuesday, Sept. 18, to give a gallery talk about his work. The talk is at 4 p.m. in the Print Study Room of the Quick Center and is free and open to the public.

André Brasilier is a French painter and printmaker whose work often depicts nature and is typified by a breezy lyricism, wherein real-life subjects are transposed into dreamlike settings.
Brasilier’s images portray a peaceful world, with delicate compositional and color harmonies bathed in soft, cool light.
His lithographs are a blend of abstraction, expressionism, and something distinctly his own.
He takes significant aesthetic and philosophical inspiration from Japanese prints, with his paintings often featuring pastoral scenes, musical instruments, the sea, women, and horses.
Born in 1929 in Saumur, France, to an artistic family where both of his parents were painters, Brasilier attended the École des Beaux-Arts at the age of 20. He now lives in Paris.
The Brasillier pieces in the University Art Collection were presented by the F. Donald Kenney Foundation.

We see and use symbols in everyday life. They are often so commonly used that our minds do not distinguish them from the written word.
As visual elements, symbols are often used as shortcuts in describing more complex concepts, actions or ideas, such as love or hope for eternal life. Symbols have been a proponent of language since the beginning of history. In fact, the English language, as we understand it, is simply a system of symbols.
In Figures of Speech, we bring together artifacts from many varied cultures and history to explore the concept of language and communication, juxtaposing them with those we more commonly employ today.
