This past Friday, Hozier’s second studio album was released, closing a five year gap between his debut album from 2014 and his latest. Given the massive success of the Irish singer’s first album, “Hozier” and five years’ worth of expectation, Hozier’s second album was released upon high anticipation. So does ‘Wasteland, Baby!’ rise to the challenge?
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty, — that is all / Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
Art is a medium that contains within it the passage of time. It is something that remains. A piece of art is how it was, how it has been since its creation. It is the same object seen by innumerable different sets of eyes, through myriad ages, and yet still the lift of the artist’s brush flicked up a peak of paint that rose above the canvas. The paint dried in its miniature topography and the action of an instant was preserved through time. Do you remember standing in a museum to view for the first time a famous piece of art that has been reproduced in countless photographs, on postcards, t-shirts and posters? Did you look closer and imagine the artist painting it, stroke by stroke? Did you retrace the line of their brush with your eyes and follow it up to a peak of dried paint?

“Eating Animals” is an important film. Based on the 2009 book of the same name by Jonathan Safran Foer, the documentary explores the subject of the American agricultural industry, a topic that’s often neglected in public discussions, and focuses on the highly troubling issue of the factory farming of poultry and livestock. It is a system whose bread and butter, so to speak, is the brutal and barbaric abuse of animals. However, it is one thing to know this as a fact, but it is an entirely different thing to see it happen.
Nan Darham is a graduate student in Dartmouth’s Master of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) program whose artwork was most recently exhibited in the Nearburg Gallery of the Black Family Visual Arts Center. Darham’s paintings are a colorful celebration of her life in Bozeman, Montana. Using oil pastel on paper and acrylic on canvas, Darham skillfully illustrated the peculiarities of the places we call home, and how those places are made so much more significant through those who inhabit them with us. In her work, Darham emphasizes the innate connection between human beings and natural rhythms, a connection that is easily remembered in the untouched majesty of Montana, with its backdrop of snowy peaks, glacial valleys and alpine forests. Her subjects range from a buffalo silhouetted by the Montana highlands to a portrait of her daughter baking in the kitchen, as the family dog stands guard behind her. The informal warmth and vibrancy of her paintings temper the clean lines of the voluminous entryway to the gallery.
