Signs of Life

Signs of Life Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Great Hall presents its sixth annual showcase, Signs of Life, an exhibition featuring the works of husband and wife team Roger Sandes and Mary Welsh. The show will open with an artist’s reception for the public on Friday, October 14 at 5p at One Hundred River Street. Wine and light refreshments will be served.
Signs of Life offers the opportunity to extend the glories of Vermont’s summer featuring contemporary images of natural beauty and abstract form. Figurative works on nature-based, multi-cultural and art historical themes have been the subject of Roger Sandes’s work since moving to Vermont 35 years ago. His large, iconic paintings incorporating symbols of life and human creativity hang in 32 states, D.C., Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, England, Germany, Switzerland, and Morocco.
Roger Sandes’s paintings look like silk and feel like eggshell. “My glazes and washes are highly translucent. Light can pass through the pigment and bounce off of the white ground. That way the colors can glow. I hope to create objects of contemplation that will attract the eye and reward the viewer with layers of meaning, delightful color, and with allusions to living well.”
Mary Welsh’s collages are made of found materials from art magazines, art books, calendars and end papers which are glued with acid free acrylic medium on birch or mahogany plywood panels that have been prepared with acrylic gesso. Mary explains:

“My collages are depictions of what we all take for granted — houses, rooms and their contents. Viewing these scenes evokes memories and fantasies….”

Time: 10/14/16 5:00pm - 3/31/17 5:00pm

Avian Inspired

Avian Inspired
Description:

Berlin, Vermont, resident Linda Mirabile will display her most recent work in the CVMC gallery. This series is all about birds and bird-related images. Linda's portraits of birds, both resident and from other parts of the world, are larger than life and extremely detailed. Her goal with this new work isn't so much about being anatomically correct (although she is) but about capturing the essence and personality of our avian neighbors. Her work is primarily done in acrylic on either Fabriano hot-pressed watercolor paper or birch panels. The show is open 24/7 as this is in the CVMC gallery space in the hospital lobby.

American Faces: A Cultural History of Portraiture and Identity Vermont Arts 2017
