Art Exhibit: A Life in Focus: Selected Photoworks by Phil Grout
Sunday, Feb. 15 – Thursday, March 20
Phil Grout began to hone his craft as a photographer in 1966, working as a photojournalist covering naval operations in Vietnam. He quickly discovered it wasn’t the images of war he was seeking, but more the face of humanity as he roamed the back alleys of Saigon, Hong Kong, Japan and the Philippines.
With pictures and words he became a gatherer of the threads, which bind us together as human beings. As the images in this exhibit attest, he approaches his subjects with compassion and clarity of purpose, bringing heart and essence to the surface. Learn more.

Hiram Williams: A Curators Tribute
Monday, March 2 – Friday, April 10
This exhibit is a tribute to Hiram Williams’s work, his indomitable spirit, and the intelligence and passion of a life lived fully.
For those who never understood his work because of its abstraction, look again to see that you are the audience about which he painted, full of complexity, joy, darkness and brilliance. He was ever hopeful:
“Please look at the work! My hope is that there will be rewards as my imagery touches upon the human condition. There is considerable joy in recognizing our fate, the absurdity of life and how we, as audience, seek to create meaning in a hopeless situation. It takes courage to do this. Be kind to other members of audience, after all, you are one of them!” Learn more.
