Hello All, your friendly Executive Director Preston here with an invitation… As most of you know, the Triton Museum of Art was finally able to reopen this past March, after a year of closure due to COVID-19. (You may have heard something about that.) Fortunately, we are once again open to the public and are thrilled that many of you have visited and enjoyed our exhibitions. So … here is the invitation:

One of our current exhibitions — “Chun-Hui Yu: Poetic Sentiment, Chan Spirit” — closes on Sunday, June 6, and we would like for you to be able to enjoy this stunning show before it leaves. Sadly, we were not able to host a public artist reception during the run of the show due to covid protocols, so we invite you to visit the museum on June 6, from noon to 3:00 p.m. for a celebration viewing of the exhibition. Though we cannot hold a reception with all the bells and whistles, we can welcome you as a regular museum visitor to see some amazing Chinese brush paintings and to meet the artist!!! I hope to see you there.

For a sneak peak at Chun-Hui Yu’s art and exhibition, and for a complete playlist of the Triton Museum’s Pocket Exhibitions, please visit:

What a year! Sheltering-in-place, Zoom meetings, an over-familiarity with Netflix, and — if you are like me — books. A LOT of books! And now with things opening back up, the availability of vaccines, and a big desire to re-experience some of our favorite activities (like going to the Triton and its wonderful art history lectures), we thought it was a good time to announce the kick-off of the Triton Museum’s year-long monthly book club: The Stories of Art.

We invite you to read selected novels about art or famous artists before we meet, and then join us beginning July 7, 2021 on the first Wednesday morning of each month, for an art history presentation about that month’s novel, the portrayed artist, and related art, as presented by Triton Museum Executive Director, Preston Metcalf. Learn how the novel does — or doesn’t — comport to the actual history of its subject, and hear more about the artwork and the artists’ times in which they were created. Join Preston as he takes you on a journey, rich with the details and stories that will help illuminate both the art and the novel.

Admission to the monthly book club art history lectures is free for Triton Members ($5 donation requested for non-members), and all are welcome, whether you have actually read the book or not. Coffee and pastries will be served, so please order your first book(s) of the series, get your read on, and you will be set for our first gathering on July 7.

And to get you started, here are the first three books we will be reading and exploring:

July 7, 2021:
My Name is Red
by Orhan Pamuk

August 4, 2021:
Leonardo’s Swans
by Karen Essex

September 1, 2021:
The Way to Paradise
by Mario Vargas Llosa

We are excited to read with you! For a complete list, go to our website, link in bio.

Over the millennia, humanity’s view of itself and our role in the great scheme of life has changed. Many — most — of those changes reflect the different stages of human achievement, historical events, and the ever changing values we adopt as societies. The BIG changes in how we see ourselves, however, namely who and what we are as a species, have occurred only a few times throughout homo sapiens’ time on earth, and these changes established our relationship to all life on earth. It has ever been the artists’ role to portray the world and our place in it.

In this series, art historian and Triton Museum Executive Director Preston Metcalf will take us on a journey through time as we explore the art that reveals who and what we are: as we saw ourselves in millennia past and up to the present day. And those who are familiar with Preston’s encompassing approach to art and history, know that we can expect some unexpected surprises and insights along the way. Please join us Thursday evenings, June 3 - 24, 2021, from 7:00-8:30 p.m., at the Triton Museum of Art for this grand tour through time, to see how perceptions of ourselves on the big scale also influenced and dictated the many smaller changes we experienced in the art of being human.

Please note: Lectures will be held in person at the Triton Museum of Art. Socially distanced seating and the wearing of masks will continue to be observed, per State, County, and CDC guidelines. Due to the limited availability of socially distanced seating, advance registration is strongly recommended.

An Exhibition in Your Pocket: Chun-Hui Yu

Now on view until June 6, Chun-Hui Yu’s art is an integration of philosophy, painting, and calligraphy, with nature, poetry and Ch’an (Zen) serving as vital sources of inspiration. Her ink paintings, which include many abstract landscapes, are a contemporary reinterpretation of the classical Chinese art form.

Raw Mind, Vulnerable Soul: Journey Through a Teen Mind 🧠🧐

This fascinating new show was curated by four TEEN curators. It helps to bring a light to mental illness, a subject that should be embraced because it affects many of our peers. We are so elated to be able to have a display of work that has so much thought and meaning behind it.

The teens selected works from our Permanent Collection to show the many aspects of mental illness, giving them an opportunity for expression and community inclusion. Each piece in the exhibition has a thoughtful statement from one of the teens in order to give the viewers a small peek into the mind of a teenager today. Come check it out 🙂
