This month we’re spotlighting the Thorne Sagendorph Art Gallery on the campus of Keene State College in downtown Keene New Hampshire. The gallery is always free admission - a great place to spend an hour on a cold winter afternoon. We spoke to Thorne director Brian Wallace to learn more about the gallery:
Currently on exhibit at the Thorne is a show of Mark Hogancamp’s work. Hogancamp is the subject of a nationally released feature film, Welcome to Marwen, in theaters now! The exhibit, Mark Hogancamp: Women of Marwencol and Other Possible Histories, features photographs and photo-series by an upstate New York artist who, as a mode of recovery from a violent assault and as an art practice, customizes and arranges 1/6 scale figures in miniature settings of his own design to tell an ongoing, looping, personal, epic story of conflict, loyalty, love, loss, and stockings.
