The Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild presents “Curiosities of History and Science in the Old World and New,” a series of collages inspired in part by the Enlightenment-era ethos of knowledge collection. The Underhill artist uses appropriated texts and other materials to create fantastical narratives and inventories that are like the Wunderkammer remixed. “The work is not meant to teach or preach,” Powell writes in his artist statement, “but to present images from a variety of sources in new configurations that might provoke curiosity, promote reflection on what we know and think we know, and challenge our habitual thinking.”
