Connections: Exhibition Guides

Connections: Exhibit Guides are a comprehensive visitor resource that provides insight into the exhibitions in the galleries. They can be used in conjunction with a visit to the galleries or for those who are visiting remotely, as a guide for independent study. The guides include extensive information and images of the exhibition including the artist’s biography and statement, video links and provocations. Exhibition guides are provided in an interactive pdf format located in the exhibitions section of this website. The current and archived exhibition guides are also available below.

The Artist Spotlight Series is part of An Appalachian Summer Festival and features interesting and informative virtual programming that provides a behind-the-scenes view of the festival’s offerings in the visual arts, music, theater and dance.
