“Manifest Destiny” Embraced at Hotchkiss

MerillDale Stewart reports from Lakeville, CT.
On Friday, February 22, the Tremaine Gallery at the Hotchkiss School hosted a reception and artist talk with photographer Leigh Merrill, pictured left, and about 60 staff, students, and local artists. The show, Manifest Destiny: Photographic Works by Leigh Merrill, is an exhibition of new photographs and videos. The exhibition is a collaboration between gallery directors Greg Lock and Terri Moore and Melissa Stafford of the Albany-based Stafford Contemporary, which represents artists working in a wide variety of artistic approaches. Featuring a selection of Merill’s works from three different yet connected series (“Into the Sunset,” “Delphinidin,” and “Mockingbird”), the show explores her fascination with themes of beauty, control, class, and romanticism. The exhibition will remain on view through March 8.
