Greasy Luck! The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan

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.


Smart Painting

A show of paintings by artists who respond to the institution of contemporary abstraction. Organized by John O' Donnell. Featuring artists: Blake Shirley, Sharon Butler, Deborah Dancy, Zachary Keeting, Ben Piwowar, Jenn Dierdorf, Rob D. Campbell, Derek Leka, Clare Grill, Tatiana Berg.




Perry Obee’s painting process is driven by the formal and material concerns of direct studio practice. As explorations of the abstract, representational and material properties of paint the underling content of his work is the situational context of everyday objects, people and place. In the “Stacked Space” series, precarious vertical and horizontal stacks of books and other objects appear to dissolve into shallow background planes. Modern still-life traditions are engaged here as composition; lighting and color are manipulated to derive a sense of self-referential order and harmony. These arranged views of Obee’s possessions double as autobiographical interactions of momentary space, artistic perspective and the material experience of his own place within them.

Obee is an adjunct art instructor at MxCC. He holds an MFA from Western Connecticut State University and a BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University. See more of his work at Pegasus Gallery is located within the library on the first floor of Chapman Hall. Hours: Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., when classes are in session.



Attend a reception on Wednesday February 5, 2014 from 5 to 7 p.m. and enjoy Karen Barton’s series of tondo paintings, which employ the traditional round panel format and the Italian Renaissance combination of oil paint and gold leaf. Picturesque subjects of reflected water lilies, trees, sky and rippled water dislocate viewer’s sense of specificity as they are composed within closely cropped peephole perspectives. The small scale and circular shapes here similarly reference telescopic and magnified slide compositions in as much as the direct landscapes they represent. Bartone lives in Clinton, Connecticut, and holds an MFA from Western Connecticut State University and a BFA from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. See more of her work at The Niche is located in Founders Hall across from the Registrar’s Office. Hours: Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to  4 p.m.
