Watching the Seasons Change Juried Art Exhibition

June 18 @ 8:00 am August 13 @ 5:00 pm

The Museum of the White Mountains at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, NH invites submissions for a juried art exhibition focused on seasonal change and how are seasons are changing due to climate change. Silver Center Lobby will be open from 10:00am till 4:00pm

When we think of the seasons changing, often we think of spring to summer, summer to autumn and so on, but this pattern becomes more complicated as the markers of change disappear. The cycles we anticipate shift. As the seasons change in the northeast, we all expect certain signs: the bright red of the sugar maple, the crackle of frozen puddles under foot, the sweet smell of fresh growth as the snow melts, the burble of the brook under a thick canopy of leaves. What will our autumns look like when it is too warm for the sugar maples? What will it sound like as our maples are replaced by oaks that hold their leaves much later? What will winter be without frozen ponds? How are we adapting to these changes? This exhibition seeks artistic responses to these changes as well as reflections on how the seasons themselves are changing.
