Through the Eyes of Others: Art in Washington County

October 22, 2022 - February 26, 2023

“The only real voyage consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes; in seeing the universe through the eyes of another, one hundred others – in seeing the hundred universes that each of them sees.” 
– 20th Century French author Marcel Proust

By looking at other people, places, and spaces, especially the natural environment, we can see differently and think differently. Art has a way of getting us to look; and look again. We hope to encourage visitors to see the world through the eyes of others; of artists. This exhibition aims to celebrate the diversity of people and places of Washington County. Taking as a point of departure the notion of “through the eyes of others,” the exhibition hopes to engender a creative investigation into what makes us human. What is important to us? Where do we go to rest, relax, contemplate? What are special places in Washington County?

The exhibition will be juried and curated by international curator Dr. Megan Arney Johnston (Stillwater Class of 1988).
