John Cross

When: March 20-July 8 2018
Phone: 802-388-2117
Sixty years after graduating from Middlebury College with a degree in economics, John Cross is being recognized in town for a very different achievement: his whimsical cast of wooden characters. Now on view on the second floor of the Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History, “American Wood Sculptor John Cross: A Contemporary Figurative Folk Artist” features a variety of figures — baseball players and fans, swimmers, entertainers and even Adam and Eve — rendered with a soft touch and painted in muted pastels. Cross’ ability to capture emotion should not be underappreciated: Eve’s haggard, sagging face in particular speaks volumes of the shame in that Christian origin story.
