Child’s Pose

Description:

In this sharply crafted family thriller, a steely Bucharest architect is determined to keep her 30-something son out of jail after a deadly car crash. A spellbinding drama of social commentary and psychological realism, this caustic look at the corrupt heart of the Eastern European bourgeoisie twists into a brilliantly ambiguous study of obsessive motherly love. “A gripping psychological thriller built around the luminous and terrifying performance of Luminita Gheorghiu”—Andrew O’Hehir, Salon. Sponsored by the Hirschfield International Film Series. (Calin Peter Netzer, Romania, 2013, 112 minutes) Free

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.

Exhibit: Love, Labor, Worship: The People of the Basin Farm

Exhibit: Love, Labor, Worship: The People of the Basin Farm Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

Love, Labor, Worship: The People of Basin Farm is a series of photographs by Dummerston's Michael Poster of the residents of Basin Farm in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Basin Farm is part of a far-flung Messianic community called the Twelve Tribes, whose members, according to Poster, "grow organic produce, bake bread, make yogurt, operate a commercial woodworking business, raise children, and devote themselves to their Messiah and master, Yahshua." To produce the series, which he began working on in 2012, Poster needed to overcome the wariness of community members who believe journalists have misrepresented them with stories focusing on allegations of child abuse and a misogynist, homophobic ideology. In a written statement accompanying the exhibit, Poster writes, "I can’t tell you that what you might read about the Twelve Tribes is true or false; my aim was not to document or pass judgment on their religious beliefs. I can say that the pictures I made at the farm are true; they are what I saw."

The Blood Queen by Sam Talbot-kelly

The Blood Queen by Sam Talbot-kelly
Description:

The Blood Queen explores the relationship between design, the body as a biological system, technology, and emotion.
Textiles in my work are used as metaphors for the permeable nature of skin, a mediating layer between emotion and perception.
The Blood Queen references the constant pursuit of the human heart, a gift to all of us, the backdrop that allows us to be breathed. She is robotic, Baroque, very red and offers heart warming comfort around the passing of life.

Gathering Threads: Contemporary Fiber Art

Gathering Threads: Contemporary Fiber Art Vermont Arts 2015
Description:

Gathering Threads: Contemporary Fiber Art, on view in the museum's Wolf Kahn & Emily Mason Gallery, is a survey of work by 13 artists pushing the boundaries of traditional textile techniques into innovative, hybridized forms. The exhibit affords viewers a chance to explore myriad ways in which fiber can be exploited for its vast emotional and symbolic potential. In her essay accompanying the exhibit, BMAC chief curator Mara Williams writes, "It is no wonder that artists are drawn to working with textiles, nor that we as viewers experience fiber art with our whole body and imagination. Our bodies touch fabric almost every hour of every day. Moments after our birth we are washed by, and swaddled in, cloth. We sleep on it, dress in it, and decorate with it. It is so familiar that, even before touching, our eyes tell us what its texture will be. We use the language of textiles -- velvety, silky, cottony, and wooly -- as descriptors. We speak of the fabric of our community."

Among the artists included in Gathering Threads is Orly Cogan, who stitches vintage magazine ads with images of well-known characters from children's literature, resulting in a mash-up of consumerism, pop culture, and childhood re-imagined. Matthew Cox adorns x-ray film with detailed reproductions of historical military headgear. Daria Dorosh recycles clothing into wall hangings. The artist duo Ligorano/Reese (Nora Ligorano and Marshal Reese) weave fiber-optic filament into a structure that conveys changing data collected via FitBit, an activity tracking program.

Dialogue: Lindenfeld + Lindenfeld

Dialogue: Lindenfeld + Lindenfeld
Description:

Dialogue: Lindenfeld + Lindenfeld represents an artistic conversation between Vermont ceramicist Naomi Lindenfeld and her late mother, Bauhaus textile artist Lore Kadden Lindenfeld. At Williams's request, Naomi Lindenfeld spent a year exploring and expanding her artistic practice, moving from a lifetime of making functional pottery to creating experimental pottery and pure sculpture inspired by her mother's artwork. This exhibit traces the trajectory of the younger Lindenfeld's artistic growth. What began as a dialogue between two artists ends up as a conversation between artwork and viewer.

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.

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.

Children of the Oasis
Description:

Children of the Oasis consists of ten tapestries created by current and former students of Egypt's Ramses Wissa Wassef Centre, a unique experiment in creativity and experiential education. For over six decades, the Centre has been the setting for a tapestry workshop for local children who had neither formal education nor artistic training. The resulting work reflects Wissa Wassef's stated belief that, "Human freedom never has as much meaning and value as when it allows the creative power of the child to come into action." The exhibit appears at BMAC in cooperation with Izdahar, a non-profit organization working to foster understanding between America and the Middle East through artistic exchange.

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
