You think 4 percent of global turnover is a harsh punishment? How about being turned into a stag for your own hunting hounds to chase down and tear limb from limb? Such was the fate of Actaeon in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, after the goddess Diana caught him watching her bathe alongside her nymphs. It’s a story that’s captivated this year’s Summit artist-in-residence, Lincoln Perry, who has used it for inspiration in his Diana’s Baths series. Contemporizing the story, and setting it among a series of New Hampshire watering holes, Perry has played upon ideas of intrusion, childhood innocence, and the natural world in bold, bright colors. Watch for Diana and Actaeon to come to life through his work as part of Wednesday’s opening plenary.
