This exhibition will feature signature examples of these works, drawn from the Farnsworth’s collection, the second largest collection of Nevelson’s work in the world.


Ellis Paul & Sophie B. Hawkins

Ellis Paul is one of those gifted singer/songwriters.Though some may refer to him as a folksinger, he is more, for lack of a better word, a singular storyteller, a musician whose words reach out from inside and yet also express the feelings, thoughts and sensibilities that most people can relate to in one way or another, regardless of age or upbringing. After a stretch in Los Angeles, iconic singer-songwriter and New York native Sophie B Hawkins, is back on the East Coast with a new album- a rich compilation of beautiful tunes, each telling its own powerful story through soaring melodies and evocative lyrics.
