Susan Wahlrab: Seasons

Susan Wahlrab: Seasons
Description:

The North Gallery of West Branch hosts Susan Wahlrab’s new exhibition entitled Seasons and is on view through August 31. Her unique watercolor technique is impressionistic when viewed from a distance alluding to the British Romantic landscapes of J.M.W. Turner and Monet. Their influence is clearly evidenced, yet viewed up close, one is surprised to see tiny pools, miniscule etchings in the wash of color, like watery hieroglyphics. Almost encaustic in their layered density, the paintings look and feel wet from the coating of glossy clear varnish.

Black Comedy
by Peter Shaffer
Laughter begins when the lights go out! Lovesick Brindsley, a young sculptor, has embellished his apartment with antique furniture and objects d'arte "borrowed" from his absent neighbor hoping to impress his fiancee's father, a pompous and a wealthy art dealer. The neighbor returns just as a blown fuse plunges the apartment into total darkness (but for the audience the stage is brightly lit). Unexpected guests, errant phone cords, and other snares impede his frantic efforts to return the stolen items. A non-stop laugh riot!

American Moderns, 1910–1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell

American Moderns, 1910–1960: From O'Keeffe to Rockwell
Description:

Organized by the Brooklyn Museum, American Moderns presents almost 50 artworks from its collection in a variety of styles that explore the depth and range of American modern painting and sculpture.

Museum director Tom Denenberg said, “While Shelburne Museum is best known for its early American paintings and vast folk art collection, at the end of her life, Museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb (1888-1960) planned to expand the Museum’s collection to include modernist paintings and sculpture. This exhibition not only allows visitors a rare opportunity to experience modern masters in Vermont, but it also completes what might have been Mrs. Webb’s ultimate vision for the museum. She wanted to present a piece of what Georgia O’Keeffe called, ‘this great American thing’ to Vermont audiences.”

This is the last stop on the tour for the exhibition, and perhaps a once in a lifetime moment for art lovers in Vermont to see this important group of artworks. Forty-four paintings and three sculptures will be on view in Shelburne Museum’s Pizzagalli Center for Art & Education by such artists as Georgia O’Keeffe, Milton Avery, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Elie Nadelman and Norman Rockwell. Vermonters will be pleased to note that artists Rockwell Kent and Luigi Lucioni, who are both included in this exhibition, spent time in Arlington and Manchester, Vermont, respectively.

Art in the Supreme Court: Maria Epstein, Paintings Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

From the Artist:

"This exhibition represents over 20 years of painting ranging from my earliest influences of Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, the New York School and the School of Paris up to my present work to which an “ism “ has not yet been identified. After many years working from life, especially the model I began to discover my own vocabulary and realized that often a revelatory experience was born out of chaos in which void allowed unforeseen visions to present themselves. Similar to dreams the creative mind uses the material of the sensory world to reconstruct in symbolic language a reflection of both its historical and its timeless state."

"The Rutland Muralist" Kathryn Wiegers

"The Rutland Muralist" Kathryn Wiegers Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

Join us this month as we explore the unique perspective and artistic process of Kathryn Wiegers, whose colorful, whimsical and naturalistic murals enliven four locations around Downtown Rutland (with a fifth scheduled to be unveiled on Halloween). One of her murals can even be found at the bottom of Center St. alley, right next to the gallery! Stop in and see not only a variety of her paintings, but a selection of her working/planning materials from her murals as well.

Excerpt from Artist's Statement:
"......In my artwork, I try and display the world around us in a unique, and what I hope to be an intense way. All the beauty and details in life, from a single blade of grass to the deep wrinkles in a face constantly confront me. All of these things can speak volumes and yet are so often passed by. In painting these subjects in a large medium there is a great deal more brought to attention. This is what I love to do and continuously strive to do better."

The work featured in this exhibit is part of a sculpture project Wright began in 2007. Wright is well-known for his Japanese influenced ceramics with a minimalist aesthetic, and the bronze work in this exhibit grows from the same place. In talking about using bronze as a medium he states, “So why am I interested in bronze? . . . Bronze carries a feeling of permanence. When I arrive at a form that, to my eye, appears mature, I have a desire to see it realized in bronze. Bronze leads to the possibility of small editions, and varied surface treatments. Color is variable and controllable. Finally and most important, the visual hardness of the material works for my forms.”

Malcolm’s son, Shaun Wright, creates striking black and white photography in mini-landscapes, drawing from the world around him, “One of the early lures of photography was my inability to face an empty canvas. I use a method of working reductively from all that my eyes see, rather than constructing from inside my mind.” Images in this exhibit are gathered from a range of Shaun’s life experience, reflecting his life during a move from Saint Louis, Missouri to Sao Paulo, Brazil. According to Shaun, “Photographs present themselves to me and are most commonly created by removing the busyness of life in order to create a world inside the image . . . The desires of modern life become unimportant, all that remains is a silver print with the basic elements of design: texture, shape, line, and composition. . . These prints all come from my journey, my camera, and my eyes.”

Rounding out the exhibit are the atmospheric abstracted landscapes of Petria Mitchell. An artist established in Southern Vermont for over 30 years and co-owner of Mitchell • Giddings FIne Arts, Petria’s work is familiar to many. The softly blended colorist scenes come from her own imagination, “Which allows me to play with limitless visual possibilities with a thorough appreciation for abstraction. My paintings are compositions of internal places not visited on foot. When working with atmosphere and diffused light, I'm able to emphasize my interest in the plasticity of paint, rather than the physics of light.”

These exhibits will be on display through September 27, 2015. On Sunday, August 23 an artist talk featuring Malcolm and Shaun Wright and facilitated by Craig Stockwell begins at 5pm and is open to the public.

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts features innovative works by midcareer and established artists in a variety of media. MGFA is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11-5 pm.

Time: 8/20/15 5:00pm - 9/27/15 5:00pm

Tom Leytham - The Other Working Landscape

Tom Leytham - The Other Working Landscape
Description:

The Vermont Governor’s Gallery presents a solo exhibition of work by Tom Leytham, Architect and Artist – ”The Other Working Landscape”- 20 giclee prints of industrial sites from the Vermont region are featured. All are hiding in plain site – forgotten and ignored but part of the history of Vermont. Working with watercolors and the white surface of watercolor paper, Tom seeks to create complex pictorial environments that illuminate a process of visual discovery of a richly, built environment. Just as the actual ruins invite prolonged visual exploration, through the use of partial views, negative space, dramatic perspective, and rich detail to engage the viewer’s imagination, and focus attention on elements of detail, and construction. The duality of density and emptiness is a motif of the work that lends an air of mystery and elegy to the landscape images. In this work he explores the boundaries of representation and abstraction.

Rich and Tasty: Vermont Furniture to 1850

Rich and Tasty: Vermont Furniture to 1850
Description:

Organized by Shelburne Museum, the exhibit will be on view at the Museum’s Pizzagalli Center for Art & Education from July 25 to November 1, 2015. The exhibition dramatically expands popular understanding of Vermont high style furniture. These examples reveal the exquisite craftsmanship of individual forms and will encourage a wider audience to learn about regional taste and economics that help define Vermont furniture’s stylistic features and unexpected aesthetic innovations in the early decades of the nineteenth century.

Approximately 40 documented pieces will be displayed, the majority of which have never been on view before. In addition to showcasing pieces from Shelburne Museum’s extensive permanent collection, public and private collections contributing pieces in the Northeast will include: the Vermont Historical Society, the Collection of the Woodstock Historical Society, Fleming Museum of Art, The University of Vermont, Historic Deerfield, Inc., the Collection of J. Brooks Buxton, the Collection of Norman and Mary Gronning, the Collection of the Fowler Family, and other private collections.

According to Museum Director Tom Denenberg, “Vermont furniture has long held a special place in the hearts of students of American decorative arts; it is idiosyncratic yet elegant and very much of this place. In fact, nineteenth-century Vermont proves to be the perfect microcosm to study regional furniture making. The creation of a communal aesthetic here was unique, persistent and made up of influences from near and far. This exhibition and catalogue will open eyes to the skills and innovative spirit of Vermont furniture makers and stand as the definitive reference for years to come.”

Judy B. Dales: Ahead of the Curve

Judy B. Dales: Ahead of the Curve
Description:

The unique contemporary work of quilt artist Judy B. Dales of Greensboro, Vermont, is on view in Shelburne Museum’s Hat and Fragrance Gallery. The opening of the exhibition titled Judy B. Dales: Ahead of the Curve will coincide with the opening of Shelburne Museum’s grounds and gardens on May 1 and continue on view until October 31.

Dales, whose art is represented in the White House Collection of American Crafts in Washington D.C., is internationally acclaimed for her innovative use of curves, abstract designs, sensitive layering of textures, and sophisticated pairings of soft, pastel fabrics. Dale’s quilt “Dancing On The Dark Side of The Moon” (1997) was exhibited in the International Quilt Festival’s 100 Best Quilts of the 20th Century exhibition in 2000 and included in the book of the same name. Dales is currently working on an exhibition catalogue in conjunction with this exhibition.

The quilts featured in this exhibition were made during the last eighteen years and are inspired by Dales’ free-form sketches or the effects of moonlight on snowy landscapes. Her “palette is a subconscious celebration of femaleness, as well as a very conscious expression of feminism,” as she says in her artist statement and in her memoir. By embracing feminism and revitalizing the curved form in quilts, Dales continues to be ahead of the curve.
