The Aldrich Benefit Bash is the single most important fundraiser of the year. This event continues the Museum’s tradition of fostering artists who are at the forefront of contemporary art, mounting exhibitions that have a lasting impact in our field, and presenting dynamic education and public programs in our community.

Jessica Stockholder’s career in the visual arts now spans more than thirty years, including over seventy solo exhibitions worldwide and representation in numerous major public and private collections. Her work, which has had a significant impact on contemporary sculptural practice, is categorized by a deep love of color and a focused engagement with the intersection of pictorial space and the physicality of the material world. Stockholder first exhibited at The Aldrich in 1993, and in 2011 she presented Hollow Places Court in Ash-Tree Wood, a major solo exhibition based on the wood from a 130-year-old ash tree that had been removed from the Museum’s Sculpture Garden. Stockholder is also known for her writing on art and her commitment to teaching, which includes her appointment in 2012 as Chair of the Department of Visual Art at the University of Chicago.

Generous support for The Aldrich’s 2018 Benefit Bash is provided by Crozier and U.S. Trust. The official media partner for this event is Connecticut Cottages and Gardens (CTC&G).

New Limited Edition Jewelry by Beth Campbell

Posted 07/27/17

These pieces of conceptual jewelry mark Beth Campbell’s first time working in wearable art. Based on two of her mobiles, both currently on view at The Aldrich, My mother’s house (necklace), and You’ve really fucked up this time (earrings), they provide another form for her “drawings in space” focusing on the structure and lines from her Potential Future Drawings and Potential Past Drawings series. These are a diagrammatic exploration of the potential latent within everyday experience rendered in solid 14K gold. Both the earrings and necklace were produced in an edition of ten with one artist’s proof and a prototype.
