The Carol Shen Gallery

2010-11 PAST Exhibitions


Grid-lock, 14" x 11" (detail), acrylic on woven strips (1980).

The distinctive artwork of Thor Rinden (1937-2009) spans almost five decades and is represented in both private and public collections, including The State University of Iowa Museum of Art and the Smith College Museum of Art.  His major series of “Wovens” and “Slabs” serve as counterpoints to his intimate figurative subjects.  Thor and his wife, Jane, were beloved members of the Packer community from 1967-1981, when she was an English teacher and department chair here.  She returns with Thor's work to celebrate many of the pivotal artistic periods during his art-filled life. See Thor’s work at: www.thorrinden.com.

 Co-curated by: Jane Rinden, Maggie Levine, and Ken Rush.

April 20 – May 13, 2011
Exhibit hours: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Packer’s Science and Arts Departments invite you to celebrate the opening of a school-wide interdisciplinary curricular exploration inspired by the exhibition Digital’09: Mysteries in Science.  

Digital'09: Mysteries in Science is organized by Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI), as its 11th international, digital print competition-exhibition. Entrants submitted images that addressed the fact that no matter how many scientific breakthroughs there are today,
life in our universe and on planet Earth is still full of mystery.

Originated and first exhibited at the New York Hall of Science, Digital'09: Mysteries in Science was co-jurored by: Dr. Arthur P. Molella, Director of The Smithsonian's Lemelson Center; and artist/curator Cynthia Pannucci, Founder/Director of ASCI.
