    This show presents works of Madara Tropa created in multiple media, drawing, watercolor, and sculpture, and reflects upon her meditations while living along the Connecticut River. In her work, nature is the main source of observation and inspiration. Through contemplation of its forms and landscape, flora and fauna, she works through notions of being, the temporal space which we inhabit, and our ultimately common fragility.


    Madara Tropa (1987, Latvia) is a visual artist based in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, United States. She completed her studies at “La Esmeralda” National University of Art in Mexico City. She has participated in group shows at the Pier-2 Art Center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, the Winzavod Contemporary Art Center in Moscow, Russia, the Equity Gallery in New York, the Museum of Mexico City, and others. Her artwork probes between the limits of fiction and reality, in search of her most profound understanding of being. In her paintings, Madara transforms her visions of places into a meditative journey where contemplation and memory are the main keywords of reference.


    Admission to the Gallery is free.

    An exploration of Pompeii, a city cloaked in mystery and depicted through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced and imagined it over the course of history: from Pliny the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau.  Famously known for the catastrophic volcanic eruption which buried Pompeii along with its inhabitants over 2000 years ago, Pompeii: Sin City hosted by Isabella Rossellini offers audiences an extraordinary snapshot of Roman life, frozen at the moment of burial, showing how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and ultimately, their fate.

    Admission:  $8 Adults / Tillotson Members & Students $4.

    Florence in the era of the powerhouse Italian statesman, politician and patron Lorenzo de' Medici, was the heart of Renaissance art and culture. One artist, above all others, was able to evoke the lights and shadows of this unforgettable era: Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). Through Botticelli: Florence and the Medici, we re-live Florence and all its art workshops through Botticelli's life, his collaborations, his challenges and successes. From the outset of Botticelli's career under the wing of the Medici family, he established himself as the inventor of an ideal beauty, seen in works such as The Allegory of Spring and the Birth of Venus. The death of Lorenzo de Medici marked the downward spiral of the Florentine master, who was destined to be forgotten for over three centuries, but the rediscovery of Botticelli by the Pre-Raphaelites reignited a genuine fascination with the artist and sparked a Botticelli-mania which continues to this day.

    Admission:  $8 Adults / Tillotson Members & Students $4.

    A dancer paralyzed with a spinal cord injury tests the limits of her recovery while adapting to life with a disability.

    Beneath the waters of Lake Superior, off the shore of Wisconsin, Kelsey Peterson underwent a transformation. On the eve of Independence Day 2012, she dove in and hit the lake bottom headfirst, suffering a life-altering spinal cord injury that takes away both function and sensation from the chest down, essentially robbing Kelsey of her self-identities as an athlete and dancer. Alongside peers and allies in the spinal cord injury community, she seeks to answer the question “Who am I now?” As she grapples with the ebb and flow of hope and acceptance, Kelsey talks to researchers and meets with people who belong to this community and who help give her the strength and the will to return to dance. When a cutting-edge clinical trial surfaces, it tests her expectations and her faith in the possibility of a cure, forcing her to evaluate the limits of her recovery—in body and spirit.

    Admission is free, concession stand will be open
