Artist-in-Residence Serena Bates
September 6 - September 24Free with Admission
Mystic Seaport Museum is excited to welcome Artist-in-Residence Serena Bates, from September 6 – 24, Tuesday to Saturday, in the John Gardner Boat Shop Annex. Serena’s sculptures bring stories to life, incorporating ideas and visions from people around her, various materials she works with, and her physical environment. And, it’s stories that define her work, what drive her vision, and what inspire her hands and life.
In the age of the Internet, fast food, and instant gratification, Serena hopes to engage her audience with an idea and let them take the time to use their imaginations, filling in the blanks to create a story for themselves. This residency provides a fantastic opportunity to meet the artist and learn about her wonderful art. Be sure to stop by the Burrows House and say hello!
