Fixed/Fluxed: Sage Lewis

Fixed/Fluxed: Sage Lewis Vermont Arts 2016
Description:

Burlington City Arts and the Vermont Metro Gallery presents Fixed/Fluxed: Sage Lewis on view through October 1st, 2016. Lewis, who is a Vermont native currently based in Tunbridge, has recently returned from teaching university students in Doha, Qatar. Her work in the Vermont Metro Gallery includes 18 pieces that were made in Doha, London, Vermont, and most recently in Rochester, New York during a residency at the Visual Studies Workshop in May of 2016. This is her first exhibition in Vermont.

Fixed/Fluxed: Sage Lewis, located on the 4th floor of BCA, dovetails with the group exhibition, also titled Fixed/Fluxed on the first and second floors celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Seven Below Artist Residency Program. Lewis was an artist in residence at Seven Below during the summer of 2014 and much of the work she produced there traveled with her to Qatar and was exhibited at the Virginia Commonwealth University’s branch campus there. Lewis works in a range of media making connections between material process and concept as she translates images across multiple surfaces of paper and fabric. Her experimental photo-based works establish a tactile relationship between methods of drawing and marks of photographic processes. This body of work takes well-known methods of image making such as inkjet and laser copy prints and uses them in unconventional ways to evoke the perceptual phenomena of the desert landscape. The exhibition also includes three examples of carbon prints, a lesser known historic photographic process, which Lewis produced with the help of a faculty research grant from VCUQatar.

About her time in Qatar, Lewis says she was influenced by the landscape and architecture of the urban environment. “Throughout my time in Doha, I was continually observing a wide range of architecture from the ‘starchitect’ mega-contemporary buildings to the aging vernacular structures from decades earlier, as they are being torn down and constructed as something new. The urban landscape is constantly changing due to rapid construction and Qatar has set out to create an international hub for education and research where I was located in Education City, Doha. My fascination with the desert and notions of scale and orientation became a rich source of imagery from which I am still working. Texture and grain which are present in paper and images relate directly to the surface of the desert. Perceptual interferences from heat waves and dust have also left their mark on my work.”

DAVID BREWSTER: QUIXOTIC ENCOUNTERS, Vermont Paintings 1996-2016

DAVID BREWSTER: QUIXOTIC ENCOUNTERS, Vermont Paintings 1996-2016 Vermont Arts 2016
Description:

Hadrien Redouin, gallery director at the Southern Vermont Arts Center says: The visionary work of David Brewster is a modern dance for the eyes, an all-at-once evolution of abstract expressionism from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. From my first encounter with David’s painting, I was committed to bringing a retrospective of his remarkable oeuvre to the Southern Vermont Arts Center where you will discover his work.

 

David jBrewster writes:

  • I'm in the process of opening a retrospective of paintings created primarily in the remote, hardscrabble surroundings of Halifax Vermont, where I’ve lived in an enchanted 200-year old farmhouse perched on a wind-swept mountain reminiscent of Wuthering Heights. Throughout my career I’ve sought out a kind of theater, often choosing opulent interiors and sylvan landscapes that are somehow distressed, threatened, disintegrating, forgotten or abandoned. Throughout my development I have continued to revisit these same scenarios, with their heightened sense of drama, movement and collapse, inviting the spectator to cross a threshold to confront aspects of our culture that are evolving or perishing. 
  • My paintings sit within a tradition the French call premier coup, meaning “all at once.” They are most often executed in one swift pass, with the graphic urgency of improvisational response underscoring all decisions and informing the energy of the mark. The main tool in my work is the foam paint roller, which is the perfect match for the exuberance I bring to my work, the energy and velocity of how I move paint increasingly becoming a subject in itself. Letting the mark expand and travel and become something more in its own right, I’m able to liberate from descriptive tendency and come closer to my ideal of working as nature works, with the marks blooming and evolving of their own accord.

The Francis Colburn Gallery
University of Vermont
72 University Place
Burlington, VT 05405

Exhibition: Wednesday, September 21 - Friday, October 7th
Artist Talk: Wednesday, September 21, 5:30 - 6:30, Fleming 101

The Francis Colburn Gallery at the University of Vermont is pleased to announce the opening of R*O*Y*G*B*I*V, a one-person exhibition by New York based artist Eric Hibit. There will be a public lecture in Fleming Museum 101 at 5:30 pm on Wednesday September 21. The exhibition runs until October 7th. Mr. Hibit is a recipient of the Mollie Ruprecht Fund for Visual Artists.

R*O*Y*G*B*I*V is a comprehensive exhibition that includes three distinct approaches to art-making that comprises Mr. Hibit's practice. Intimately-scaled paintings on paper and masonite panel are meticulously rendered in small dots of acrylic paint, depicting imagery culled from popular culture. Included in this exhibition is a wide selection of these pieces from 2014-2016. In conversation with these works, Mr. Hibit makes sculptural paintings - his so-called armature paintings - that are made by stretching fabric over uncoiled wire. The undulating Baroque-esque forms are support for abstract paintings that engage color, gesture, and pattern. Rounding out the exhibition is a floor-to-ceiling installation of ink brush paintings that demonstrate the artist's spontaneous response to imagery.

Eric Hibit is a visual artist based in Queens, New York. He attended The Corcoran College of Art + Design (BFA) and Yale University School of Art (MFA). He has exhibited in New York at C24 Gallery, Zurcher Gallery, Field Projects, and Underdonk Projects; nationally, at Geoffrey Young Gallery in Great Barrington, MA, The Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, MA, and Curator's Office in Washington, DC.; and internationally at Zurcher Gallery in Paris, France and at The Arctic Circle Residency in Slavbard, Norway. He has taught studio art at Tyler School of Art, NYU, Hunter College and is currently teaching in the Department of Continuing Education at Cooper Union. In 2014, he joined the artist-run gallery Ortega y Gasset Projects.

Adelaide Tyrol and Joseph Lupiani: Instinct & Attitude

Adelaide Tyrol and Joseph Lupiani: Instinct & Attitude
Description:

Adelaide Tyrol’s surreally reimagined paintings of real-world flora and fauna signal a distinct departure from her previous life as a natural history illustrator. This most recent body of work explores dreamscapes and liminal areas in nature – the thresholds between sky and land, intertidal zones between water and shore – and the creatures that occupy these spaces “between worlds.” Presented in conversation with Adelaide’s works on paper, panel, and canvas, Joseph’s Lupiani’s charismatic wooden chimeras similarly exist in two worlds simultaneously: those both animal and human. Goats, rabbits, and foxes remind us of neighbors and friends with their quirkily slumped postures and casual attire. Exploring the parallels between animal and human behavior and personalities, this collection of sculptures and paintings by two Vermont-based artists will be on view through October 16th.

Join us for an opening celebration Saturday, August 20th from 6 - 8pm!

Pedaling Through History: 150 Years of the Bicycle, The Glenn Eames Collection

Pedaling Through History: 150 Years of the Bicycle, The Glenn Eames Collection Vermont Arts 2016
Description:

2016 marks the 150th anniversary of the first pedal bicycle patent in the world. The Henry Sheldon Museum in Middlebury, Vermont celebrates this occasion by showcasing the premier bicycle collection of Glenn Eames with the exhibit "Pedaling Through History: 150 Years of the Bicycle." The exhibit traces the evolution of the bicycle from its inception until today, while spotlighting the bicycle’s golden era at end of the 19th century.

The exhibit’s high points include the Velocipede or Boneshaker from the 1860s, High Wheel or Ordinary Bicycle of the 1880s, Safety Bicycle of the late 1890s, and a selection of more modern 20th and 21st century road, off road, and fat bikes. In addition to commemorative items and related bicycle equipment used by riders in the 1875-1925 period, as well as two modern bicycles the exhibit features some arts elements:

Forty-two historic bicycle photographs from the collections of Glenn Eames and Lorne Shields have been enlarged and are installed on the walls. Vermonter and New Yorker Magazine cartoonist Ed Koren has lent three of his contemporary bicycle and wheeling drawings to the exhibit, and a metal sculpture, Fish on a Bike, fashioned from found materials by Martin McGowan of Newark Vermont, a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, is on view in the Sheldon’s garden.

Kim Radochia: Murmurations

Kim Radochia: Murmurations
Description:

Walking the edge between sculpture and painting, Kim Radochia’s swirling paper assemblages encourage viewers to engage in the very kinds of natural movements they depict. Conceptually preoccupied with ‘Li,’ the ancient Chinese practice of gathering and organizing patterns found in nature, Kim finds inspiration for her abstract wall sculptures in the configurations of flocking birds called murmurations, water currents and lines, and geological formations. Thousands of meticulously painted and hand torn pieces of paper converge and disperse in each sculpture, pulling our gaze along, radiating movement and energy. The static becomes kinetic with the viewer’s participation, as color and form shift dramatically alongside our own movements. From each angle, Kim’s paper creations transform into seemingly new works of art.

Join us for an opening celebration Saturday, August 20th from 6 - 8pm!

Macbeth

Macbeth Vermont Arts 2016
Description:

Macbeth
by William Shakespeare

Directed by Stephen Brown-Fried

September 28 – October 23

Northern Stage opens our 20th Anniversary season with a bold and daring production of Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy Macbeth. Full of sound and fury, this modern production reflects our troubled times as it follows Lord and Lady Macbeth on their bloody path to the throne. Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy probes the deepest realms of human nature, finding dark truths that still resonate with our world. Gripping and intense, Macbeth remains one of the most dramatic plays ever written and is a fitting tribute to the Bard in the year 2016, the 400th anniversary of our greatest playwright’s death.

Running time: Approximately 1 hour 45 minutes with no intermission.
Advisory: Ages 11 and up for violence and mature subject matter.

“Precious metals, mineral pigments, printing, collage, stitching, and drawing – all are unpredictable elements in Michele Ratté’s extraordinary work. Each piece evokes a primordial connection to the earth and sea. A combination of handwork, assemblage, and natural objects merge in Ratté’s personal vision of the physical world. Her blending of high karat metals with common materials reflects a strong interest in alchemical and transformative processes.”

Milton Avery's Vermont

Milton Avery’s Vermont

(1885-1985)

Image: Milton Avery
Blue Trees, 1945
Oil on canvas, 28 x 36 inches
Collection Neuberger Museum of Art Purchase College, State University of New York Gift of Roy Neuberger © 2015 The Milton Avery Trust / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York
Photo Credit: Jim Frank

Milton Avery's Vermont is the first exhibition to take a focused look at the work this great American modernist created based upon his summers spent in southern Vermont, from the mid-1930s through the mid-1940s. By any account Rawsonville and Jamaica, Vermont, are out-of-the way villages, tucked into the picturesque Green Mountains, surrounded by rolling mountains, green forests, and babbling brooks. Avery, who regularly spent his summers traveling with his family in search of new material for his art, was undoubtedly drawn to Vermont by his friend Meyer Schapiro, one of the most important art historians of the twentieth century, who had owned a summer home in Rawsonville since 1930. Noted for his simultaneous commitment to exploring the formal, abstract qualities of art (line, texture, composition and, especially color) and the creation of representational images drawn from his daily encounters with people and places, Avery's Vermont work vividly captures his family's summer activities, and sketching both family members and the artist's personal response to the Vermont landscape.

Milton Avery’s Vermont examines Avery's artistic process, featuring pencil sketches executed en plein air, wonderfully fresh watercolors that were based on his sketches and executed at his Vermont cabin, and many of his major oil paintings that were drawn from these sources and typically completed during the winter months in his New York studio. Avery's Vermont works provide insight into the trajectory of his stylistic development during the fertile decade leading up to what are perhaps his best-known works, created after he joined Paul Rosenberg’s gallery in 1943. The works in the exhibition are drawn from Milton Avery Trust; The Milton and Sally Avery Arts Foundation; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York; the Peabody College Collection, Vanderbilt University of Fine Arts Gallery; and private collectors who wish to remain anonymous.

This exhibition is accompanied by a beautiful 80-page catalogue with over 64 images, and essays by Karen Wilkin, an independent curator and art critic based in New York and specialist in 20th-century modernism and Jamie Franklin, curator at the Bennington Museum. Franklin's work has focused on American art of the early to mid-20th century, with a particular emphasis on the intersection of modernism and self-taught art. The catalogue is being distributed by University Press of New England and will be available in the Museum Store after June 15, 2016.

The museum is open every day June through October. November: Closed Wednesday.

Addison County in Profile: Silhouettes from the Sheldon Archives

Addison County in Profile: Silhouettes from the Sheldon Archives Vermont Arts 2016
Description:

Since its founding in 1882, the Henry Sheldon Museum has collected unique silhouettes of historical Addison County residents, both of the well-known and of the common folk. A silhouette is a likeness of a person, bust or full body, cut from paper. Because of their fragility, the silhouettes are rarely seen by the public, but until September 04, 2016, two dozen of these singular portrait images, spanning over a century from 1800s to 1900s, will be on view. Archivist Eva Garcelon-Hart searched the Sheldon collection, identified the most stunning, long-overlooked silhouettes, researched the biographies of the sitters, and curated this historic exhibit.

There are silhouettes of politicians, local doctors, academics, and artisans who had considerable impact on local history and whose lives are well documented in news accounts and local histories. For example on view is an exceptional portrait of William Slade (1786 – 1859), who represented Vermont in the U.S. House of Representatives (1831-1843) and was Governor of Vermont (1844-1846). Less is known about the women represented by the silhouettes, except for the stunning double silhouette of now celebrated same-sex couple Sylvia Drake (1784-1868) & Charity Bryant (1777-1851).

Kent Shaw Exhibit "Retro Looks"

Kent Shaw Exhibit "Retro Looks" Vermont Arts 2016
Description:

Photographers are always talking about light – too bright, too dark, soft light, hard light, the golden hour, the blue hour, and on and on. An unexpected benefit of my recent emphasis on black and white photography has helped me not only to better recognize these qualities of light, but most importantly how to make better use of light as a compositional element. The photos on exhibit demonstrate a wide range of brightness – from the blackest of blacks to the whitest of whites with a full range of tones in between. Much of the drama in the photographs stems from using areas of light and dark to guide your eye into the image and to identify the compositional focal point of the image.

Kent Shaw is a photographer living in Elmore, Vermont. He started his career in music education and was a high school band director for ten years. While still teaching, his interest in technology led him first to recording studios, which quickly lead to a stint doing television audio for professional sports. This was followed by many years in various aspects of Information Technology. He and his wife Jean, moved to Vermont in the mid 2000s and after a few years of telecommuting from his home in Elmore he retired in 2008.

He first started photography in the early 1980’s as a hobby, but time for photography was limited by work demands. Following the introduction of digital cameras, he experimented with various point-n-shoot cameras and made the switch to Digital SLRs in 2007. He has been shooting non-stop ever since.

Night and architectural photography as well as landscapes are his primary interests. Waterfalls, especially small unknown ones off the beaten track, are another favorite subject.
