Bits and Pieces…the whimsical art of Gene Childers

Bits and Pieces…the whimsical art of Gene Childers
Description:

Bits and Pieces…the Whimsical Art of Gene Childers

Opening Reception: March 6, 2015, 5 to 7pm

For Gene Childers “making art is pure fun and adventure. Every piece I make is an opportunity to explore and learn”. Known locally as a musician and educator, Childers began creating art in 2003, with a need to soothe his soul. He set out to create just 5 pieces. Then what began as a distraction evolved into a passion. It was creative expression without pretense or performance pressure.

The primary elements Childers brings to his work are imagination, whimsy, playfulness, and humor, by re-purposing, re-cycling, and re-imagining objects into art. Acrylic paint is freely used for its immediacy and vibrant colors. The work is informed by expressionism, abstractionism, surrealism, 19th century circus poster lithography and especially, ethnographic art.

This show is a sampling of work taken from the more than 200 pieces Childers has created over an 11 year period. Included are sculptures and assemblages made into bugs, musical creations and mobiles as well as paintings and drawings. With the feeling of a 3 Ring Circus, there will be more than you can comprehend in a moment. Childers intends for you to tap into your childlike spirit, uninhibited, not restrained, and scratch your head and smile. “You never know what you will see to set your imagination free”.

This museum style exhibition will be on view in its entirety from March 6 to April 28, 2015.

The Brandon Artists Guild is located at 7 Center St. Brandon, VT.
For more information call 802-247-4956 or go to www.brandonartistsguild.org.
Winter Hours: 10am – 5pm Tues. – Sun.

Muffy Kashkin Grollier: Felted Flora, Fauna and Fantasy

Muffy Kashkin Grollier: Felted Flora, Fauna and Fantasy Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

Opening Reception: April 3, 5-7pm with a demonstration given by Muffy at 6pm
‘Felted, Flora, Fauna and Fantasy’ is an exhibit of the felted paintings and mixed media art of Muffy Kashkin Grollier. Muffy presents something of a dichotomy within her work, creating some pieces which are full of vibrant fantasy, while others reflect a representational portrayal of animals and landscapes. The pieces also walk the line between two-dimensional and sculptural due to the layering process of felting and its bas-relief results.

Time: 4/3/15 10:00am - 5/31/15 5:00pm

Subtle, Not Subtle: Evocative Nuance

Subtle, Not Subtle: Evocative Nuance
Description:

“Subtle, Not Subtle” focuses on four artists whose work displays a delicate complexity that is easily overlooked by the casual viewer. Marc Civitarese abstracts the elements of realism--shape, form, and light--as a way of showing an introspective exploration of mankind, nature, and spirituality. Janis Pozzi-Johnson paints emotional, earthy tones in thick wax layers to form viscous color fields “as a visual metaphor for the often ineffable experiences of the human heart.” Working in oil and cold wax, Helen Schulman crafts paintings that engage the viewer in a quiet conversation about color and surface texture. These loose, gestural, and expressive paintings contain an undercurrent of spirituality and strong emotional overtones. Jonathan Prince’s steel sculptures contain some element that is torn or broken. These infractions are gloriously polished to reveal the tension of imperfection. Together, these artists invite the viewer to join them in the act of contemplation and to explore nuance and subtlety in artwork. These artists reward the viewer with a powerful experience; emotional earthquakes that are anything but subtle.

Alcohol in Vermont: Creation to Consumption, Tolerance to Temperance

Alcohol in Vermont: Creation to Consumption, Tolerance to Temperance
Description:

This exhibit examines the significant role of alcohol in the Vermont history. Taverns were once the center of community life and alcohol was consumed in quantities unimaginable today. Reformers in the 1800s fought the evils of addiction and drunkenness and politicians intensely debated the regulation of alcohol in some of the most notorious elections in state history. Even after the repeal of national prohibition, many Vermont communities used Local Option laws to limit the use of alcohol. It wasn’t until the craft beer movement in the 1990s that Vermonters again celebrated alcoholic beverages. The museum is open every day June through October. February 14 through May 31, closed Wednesday. 10 am to 5 pm

On View March 28 through June 21
