    Peter Milton: Etching Enigmas
    March 20, 2016October 9, 2016
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour or $3 exhibition only.

    Peter Milton is an internationally respected titan of etching who has enjoyed a long and fruitful career in printmaking. His large-scale, multilayered images defy visual logic while telling fantastic stories about life, loss, music, and art. Over the course of more than 50 years, Milton has created intricate visual worlds in more than 130 prints, many of which took well over a year to make. In this exhibition, his copper plates and preparatory materials—being shown for the first time alongside the final prints—shed light on the innovative techniques Milton devised to give visual life to his enigmatic tableaux.

    Eda Sterchi: Embodying the New Woman
    March 20, 2016October 9, 2016
    Location: Evergreen Museum & Library Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour.

    This focus exhibition highlights a recent gift to Evergreen Museum & Library of Two Women in an Interior by the twentieth-century American painter Eda Sterchi, a highly independent woman for her time. Trained both in Chicago and Paris, Sterchi was profoundly influenced by Japonisme and European modernism, particularly the Nabis—Bonnard, Denis, and Vuillard. The installation explores Sterchi's aesthetic choices and subject matter, partiularly in relation to the emergence of the bold and free-spirited "New Woman" from the role of obedient Victorian housewife.

    An Invisible World Made Visible: The Infrared Landscapes of Phyllis Arbesman Berger
    May 17, 2016September 11, 2016
    Location: Evergreen Museum Library Price: Included with paid museum admission and on view as part of the guided tour.

    Infrared photography can appear dreamlike or mystical, sometimes even lurid. Infrared’s radiant energy documents a world beyond what is before us at first glance, beyond the visible spectrum of light. This solo exhibition showcases Baltimore photographer Phyllis Arbesman Berger’s sensitive mastery of infrared techniques through the theme of landscapes—natural and manmade—in France, Ireland and Panama.
