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.

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."

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.

Warren Kimble All-American Artist: An Eclectic Retrospective

Warren Kimble All-American Artist: An Eclectic Retrospective Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

This exhibit highlights the career of internationally-known Brandon, Vermont artist Warren Kimble, who came to prominence for his folk art, but since has concentrated on diverse themes, inspired in part by his residencies at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. These themes include his “Sunshine” series, his “Widows of War” paintings and sculpture, and more recent “House of Cards” and “Into the Box,” open faced boxes which feature found objects and architectural assemblages. In addition, as a tribute to the public and the Sheldon Museum, Warren and his wife Lorraine have agreed to display selections from their personal collection of folk art by other artists, which will be located throughout the Sheldon’s historic rooms. This will be a unique opportunity to enter the private world of Warren Kimble.
A public reception is scheduled during Middlebury’s Art’s Walk, Friday, June 12, 2015, 5 – 7 pm. Warren will be present at the reception. Warren has donated one of his paintings for a raffle to support the exhibit and education programs of the Sheldon. Gallery Talks of the exhibit will be held every Wednesday at noon.

Time: 5/19/15 10:00am - 10/18/15 5:00pm

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.”

Time: 7/25/15 10:00am - 10/31/15 5:00pm

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.
