In celebration of the relaunching of the last surviving wooden whaleship, Lyman Allyn presents Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan.
The exhibition, which runs from September 21 through June 8, 2014, will look at how whaling—its myths and reality, risk and reward—left its mark on Connecticut and American identity.
In the 1800s, friends and family gathered on the docks to wish “greasy luck” for a successful voyage to departing whaleships.
To most people, whales were mysterious creatures. Yet whaling was big business.
The thousands of barrels of oil the whalers brought home made ports like New London and Mystic some of the wealthiest places in the young nation, supporting a wide array of dockside occupations.
he Glass House is pleased to announce its first site-specific exhibition: SNAP! by E.V. Day. Conceived for the building known as Da Monsta - designed by Philip Johnson in 1995 as a visitor center and now a gallery - SNAP! interprets the pavilion's peculiar geometry and atmosphere both inside and out. Day has roped the exterior of Da Monsta with massive climbing webs and populated the interior with an ensemble of recent sculpture that tease out the noir qualities of Johnson's late work.

Futurecast features a diverse group of artists who have made work for this exhibition addressing the unprecedented weather patterns that have become a new reality for Americans.
From the flooding in New York City, the coastal devastation in New Jersey and Connecticut, relentless rain and forest fires on the West Coast and the droughts, tornados, fires and floods testing the middle of the country there exists a new anxiety about the future of our homes, businesses and infrastructure.
Many of us have learned to accept, rapidly, that there is no certainty about the future of our landscape. Drowning out the voices debating the existence of climate change is the glaring reality that change is already here. Featuring: Hilary Wilder, Bryon Finn, Sabrina Marques, Kevin Van Aelst, Lynn Palewicz, Stacy Fisher, Katya Kirilloff, Paul Duda and Noelle King. Curated by Ihrie Means.
Jennifer Davies, Karen Dow, Alisa Dworsky and Martha Lewis all create vibrant multi-dimensional paper works that exist beyond the flat plane.
They will present this work alongside their flatfile entries.
The “Not Flat” portion of their exhibition will reflect each artist's process and body of work. Organized by Jeff Bergman
