Sharri Paula Phillips: Marvelous Journeys
Yellow Springs -based artist Sharri Paula Phillips has always been drawn to worlds of mystery and magic. Her works take inspiration from childhood memories of exploring the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Mysterious carnival scenes, floating hot air balloons, fairy tree houses, and whimsical woodland creatures all make appearances in Phillips’ colorfully crafted works. Her exhibit Marvelous Journeys will be on display in the Springfield Museum of Art’s Chakeres Gallery through September 9.

Drawn to the worlds of mystery and magic, Phillips has captured fairies, gypsies, and carnival scenes in wall pieces, hanging pieces, 3-D art and more. Phillips’ work may already be familiar to some museum patrons. Her piece “Fairy Dollhouse” earned the Museum of Art’s People’s Choice Award at its 71st Annual Members’ Juried Exhibition in 2017. She works in mixed media including fabrics, papier-mâché, beadwork, found objects, textiles, and other forms. Shapiro points out while there are variations, there is also continuity in works such as the carousels. This “fantastic” exhibition is sure to delight viewers of all ages.

The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders
In partnership with AARP, the Newseum presents “The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders,” an exhibition of 19 large-format portraits of some of the most fascinating members of the influential baby boom generation—one born each year of the baby boom, from 1946 to 1964, taken by renowned American photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. The exhibit runs through June 17.

Visitors will gain insight into the boomer generation through interviews and portraits that focus on exceptional achievement, struggle and identity, telling the story of extraordinary Americans and the history they lived through and often created.

In addition to the 19 portraits, a timeline display features some of the top news events and pop culture moments that defined the baby boom generation, with images of memorable newsmagazines and photos of iconic objects from the period. Visitors can add their own memories at a comment station.

The exhibition also includes an original Newseum-produced film featuring the photographer’s stories about the project. An interactive display allows visitors to explore dozens of candid behind-the-scenes images and videos of the photo shoots, and even a scent station offers memorable aromas familiar to the baby boom generation.

The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders will be on display through June 17. The Springfield Museum of Art is located at 107 Cliff Park Rd., Springfield. For more information about the museum and exhibits, call 937.325.4673, or visit springfieldart.net.

Dayton Art Institute presents Devoted: Visual Performances of Faith
Devotion is a performance: the expression of reverence, love, and wonder from the devotee to the object of devotion. The use of visual art in religious practice is as old as faith itself, and traditions from around the world have made, and continue to make, paintings, sculpture, manuscripts, and many other objects that serve as vehicles for portraying one’s beliefs. They enact memory, recording sacred texts and depicting sacred stories, and serve as mediums for carrying out sacred rituals.

This focus exhibition, pulled from the collection of the DAI, presents artworks from a variety of faith traditions in order to explore how visual objects perform devotion.

Devoted: Visual Performances of Faith will be on display through August 19, 2018 in the Berry Wing of European Art at the Dayton Art Institute, 456 Belmonte Park N., Dayton. For more information about the exhibit, visit daytonartinstitute.org, or call 937.223.4278. The exhibit is free to members, and included in museum suggested admission
for non-members.
