Ken Leslie Exhibit to Open at Feick Arts Center
The Campus Community is invited to an opening reception for artist Ken Leslie's exhibit, "Top of the World" at Green Mountain College's Feick Arts Center in Poultney on Thursday, April 19, from 4-6 p.m.

The paintings in Leslie's 'Top of the World' exhibit were inspired by two residencies he took in the Arctic. In his work exploring the light at the arctic extremes, he has also found himself 'creating a visual record of the arctic.' "No one I met in the Arctic argues whether or not global warming is happening. They see it every year as the fjords freeze later and thaw out earlier."

In the past few years he has specialized in making limited edition and one-of-a-kind artist books, ranging in size from two inches to ten feet and larger. He paints and writes on a variety of themes including humans' place in the universe, a layman's theory of relativity, and the battle between nature and technology.

Ken Leslie has taught painting and drawing at Johnson State College since 1984. He holds an MFA in painting from the University of Pennsylvania and has received numerous honors and awards for his work, including visual artist fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Vermont Arts Council.
