Seasons - Threadpainting by Pam Druhen

Seasons - Threadpainting by Pam Druhen
Description:

Waitsfield United Church Village Meeting House is hosting an Artist Talk and Opening Reception for “Seasons-Threadpainting by Pamela Druhen” on Saturday, September 30 at 3:30 pm. Pamela Druhen is an international award winning fiber artist, working primarily in fabric and thread, as well as teacher, lecturer and curator. She will speak about the inspiration for her artwork as well as the intricate techniques used to create each original design.

“Though much of my work is representational, I enjoy working in abstract as well,” said Druhen, “I’ve begun experimenting with wire as fiber, knitting or crocheting fine gauge wire and including it in different ways.” Most of the pieces on exhibit were done between 2014 and the present including some which have been created specifically for this exhibit.

Pam draws inspiration from the beauty of Vermont and how life here is defined by the seasons. When the seasons change, everything changes with it - the smells, colors, what we wear, how we live, the food we eat. Pam’s representational work is inspired by her experiences of the seasons while traveling with her husband around Vermont, New England and beyond. Her abstract work embraces the wider seasons of life – young, old, in-between, sickness, death, change, new life, joy, love, progress and confusion. These seasons are personal and limitless. “I think my abstract work is an attempt to embrace these wider seasons of life, those that aren’t defined by weather or temperature or the limits of landscape,” said Druhen.

The Waitsfield United Church Village Meeting House has been exhibiting artwork during the Vermont Festival of the Arts for five years. “Because of our recent construction, we had to delay the opening of this show until after the Festival,” said Karen Nevin, chair of the Village Meeting House Arts Committee. “We are incredibly excited to be able to show Pam’s work this fall and open our doors to the community through this exhibit.”

The exhibit will run Fridays through Sundays, September 29-October 15 from noon – 5 pm. Pam will speak about her work on Saturday, September 30 at 3:30 pm followed by the Opening Reception. Admission is free. The Waitsfield United Church Village Meeting House is located at 4355 Main Street, Route 100, Waitsfield.

Time: 9/29/17 12:00pm - 10/15/17 5:00pm

Thin Places, Long Light: Paintings of Ireland and Vermont by Kathleen Kolb
Description:

Please join us on Saturday, August 19th from 6 to 8pm to celebrate our last opening reception of the summer!

The Strong and the Weak, Patrick Shoemaker Solo Exhibit

The Strong and the Weak, Patrick Shoemaker Solo Exhibit
Description:

Northern Daughters is excited to present The Strong and the Weak, a solo exhibit of paintings from Patrick Shoemaker. The exhibition is on view at the gallery’s 221 Main St. location in Vergennes, Vermont from September 1st through October 15th with an opening reception on September 8th from 5-8pm.

Patrick Shoemaker’s paintings are inspired by mythology and lore, rooted in American history, and folk art. While relying on contemporary vernacular, his paint handling and use of color is unmistakably his own. Using large amounts of medium mixed with oil pigment, this technique allows him to mix colors and blur lines directly on the surface, imitating a watercolor like texture. The paintings are at once iconographic and implicit, intimate and unknown.

Time: 9/1/17 10:00am - 10/15/17 5:00pm

River Works 3

River Works 3 Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Gallery at River Arts is celebrating its third annual group exhibition of River Works (on view August 24 – October 20 2017). There will be an opening reception on Thursday, September 14 from 5-7pm.

The River Arts Center’s name and location hold an emotional connection to Vermont rivers. Stewardship of environment in our community is vital. We see the bend in the Lamoille River at the Oxbow from the Center. Rivers are an important part of Lamoille County’s economic engine, with three locations for hydropower within three miles. Water is always moving. Change is constant.

River Works 3 includes a range of engaging paintings by Robert Brunelle, Rett Sturman, Jen Hubbard, John Sargent, and Homer Wells. Photographic work by Phil Herbison, and cyanotypes by Renee Greenlee show many perspectives on the river theme. Poetry and photography unite in Kent Shaw and Jean O’Conor’s collaborative piece “Rain,” and a time-lapse video by Kent Shaw of a year in the life of a stream conclude the list of exhibitors.

River Arts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the community through the arts, is located at 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Galleries are open M-Th 9-4, F 9-2. Admission is free. For more information, call 888-1261, or visit their website at www.riverartsvt.org.

Portrait of a Vermont Landscape: Paintings by Norma Jean Rollet

Portrait of a Vermont Landscape: Paintings by Norma Jean Rollet Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Brandon Artists Guild (the BAG) celebrates Vermont's colorful scenery with a new exhibit of paintings and pastels by Middlebury artist Norma Jean Rollet. The show, "Portraits of the Vermont Landscape" runs September 1 through October 31. Opening reception is Friday, September 8, 5-7pm at the BAG, 7 Center Street, Brandon.

Rollet, who attended the New England School of Art and Design in Boston, moved to Vermont in 1983, and became captivated by the diversity of the landscape. As she describes it, "From mountains to meadows to farm fields and woodlands, the characteristics of the Vermont landscape are no different than the individual features of its citizens. The beauty of the countryside forming its profile and features is the essence of what I hope to portray in my work.”

Working in oils and pastels, Rollet paints in plein air when the weather allows. "The long winter months of Vermont drive me indoors," she concedes, "but on location color studies, notes and photographs allow me to complete pieces more comfortably in my studio."

The recipient of several awards for her work, Rollet is a member of the Vermont Pastel Society, Pastel Society of America, Degas Pastel Society, and International Association of Pastel Societies.

The BAG welcomes the public to the opening reception for Norma Jean Rollet's show, "Portraits of the Vermont Landscape” on Friday, September 8 from 5 to 7 pm. The gallery, at 7 Center Street in Brandon, is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10AM to 5PM, Sundays from 10AM to 4PM. Information: 802 247-4956. www.BrandonArtistsGuild.org.

The Brandon Artists Guild is a cooperative with approximately 50 artist-members. A 501(c)3 nonprofit cultural organization, the BAG supports the visual arts through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and educational programs, particularly in local schools and after-school programs.

The Crackerjack Art Of Chuck Welch Networks and The FeMail XX Conspiracy

The Crackerjack Art Of Chuck Welch Networks and The FeMail XX Conspiracy Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Gala Artist's Reception: Friday, October 13, 6-8 p.m. at the Christine Price Gallery. Refreshments will be served!

Entitled "The Crackerjack Art Of Chuck Welch Networks The FeMail XX Conspiracy", this exhibition came together when Tara Verheide (aka Sinclair Scripa) invited Chuck Welch (aka The Cracker Jack Kid) to collaborate with her on a show that would feature what is often referred to as "NetWork Art", or art that is done in correspondence with one or more other artists. Welch, or 'Cracker' agreed, and it was decided he would contribute artwork created over years of 'networking", while Verheide or ‘Sinclair’ would provide a current survey of many NetWorker's artworks. Verheide would focus especially on pieces recently mailed to her from hundreds of artists, in over 20 countries, on the topics of Women as Scientific Artists and Networked Art as a Global Conspiracy. Together, Welch and Verheide have put together a stunning array of works, full of sharp contrasts and light commentary. Virtually every size, media, and approach to subjects and materials can be seen, from digital projects, writings and zines, to sound art, mailed art, poetry and performance art. Though seemingly unrelated, the thoughtful person will note the common thread: attitude; the attitude that daily life with its chance, spontaneous, personal, political, material and perfectly absurd offerings, is a place from which art can be practiced and shared via NetWorks. And for all that, Networked Art may be more interesting, free and significant than art made under the constraints of judgement and commodification. If there is a Networker Global Conspiracy it is this: art can be made by whoever, whenever and however the means are available. Just make sure and share it!

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Castleton University Art Galleries are excited to share "Living With The Earth," three collections of paintings by Joan Curtis, at Rutland City Hall. The Sunken Treasures group was engendered by abstracted still-life studies from Joan’s sculptures, which in turn suggest under-the-sea imagery. The panel group At One with Nature’s Wiles refers to humans living with dramatic changes in the world of nature. The Peaceable Kingdom series expresses the hope that we can continue to live with the wild animals of the Earth. All three collections were created between 2008 and 2015.

Time: 10/2/17 8:30am - 3/30/18 5:00pm
Location: Rutland City Hall, 1 Strongs Avenue, Rutland
