Exhibition and Reception at Catamount Arts

By camilla @ 6:27 am

catamount-film-artsCatamount Arts is pleased to announce the opening of Our Domestic Resurrection Circus, an exhibit of selected work from the Bread and Puppet Theater Museum in Glover, Vermont. On view in Catamount Art’s Main Gallery from July 2-August 2, 2015, the exhibition explores the rich complexity of artist Peter Schuman’s vision, which combines avant-garde sensibility with the older traditions of folkloric storytelling and medieval passion plays. In celebration of the pageantry associated with circuses, the exhibition will run concurrently with a week-long screening of the new documentary film Circus Without Borders. Catamount Arts will host an Artist Reception on Thursday, July 30 from 5:30-7:30 pm, just prior to a premier screening at 7:30 pm. All are welcome to attend.

Screening of film Circus Without Borders at 7:30 pm
