Storrs, CT - Sunday, October 14th is the last day to see the current exhibitions at The William Benton Museum of Art on the Storrs campus at the University of Connecticut.

The Dark Side of Life: 19th-Century Narrative Cycles by Rethel, Klinger, and Kollwitz is a selection of works that present the modern world in an unconventional, often times searing light, eschewing the traditional reliance on religious or mythological premises.

The 46th Annual Art Department Faculty Exhibition showcases a broad range of works created by art department faculty members from the Storrs and Torrington campuses. This year’s featured artists are Monica Bock, a sculptor and installation artist who is showing a collection of glazed porcelain figures; Pamela Bramble, an abstract painter who is exhibiting a compelling selection of her newest works in oil; and Cora Lynn Deibler, whose series of digital prints is a brief narrative of the life and work of Anatole Deibler, the artist’s very, very distant cousin and the last public executioner in France (1885–1939).

A special addition to the faculty exhibition is a series of four mixed media works by Sally Smart, an internationally renowned Australian artist and the 2012 Raymond and Beverly Sackler Artist-in-residence in the School of Fine Arts. The Pedagogical Puppet: Projects by Sally Smart is on view through October 27 at the Contemporary Art Galleries in the Art Building, 830 Bolton Road, Storrs. Hours: Monday–Friday 10-4, Sunday 1–4.

The William Benton Museum of Art galleries are open Tues–Fri 12–4:30, Sat & Sun: 1–4:30. The Store and The Beanery: Tues–Fri 8:30–4, Sat & Sun 1–4.

The William Benton Museum of Art is the Connecticut's State Art Museum, located at the University of Connecticut, 245 Glenbrook Road, Storrs, CT 06269.. Accessible. 860.486.4520. www.thebenton.org / www.facebook.com/benton.museum
