AMP Nights! Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

River Arts and Sundog Poetry have partnered together to present a new series of creative evenings which feature a special guest artist, musician, and poet who will share their work through presentations and performances. Audience members are invited to meet and informally discuss each artist’s work afterwards. Light fare and drinks available. Cash bar. Suggested donation of $10 per person at the door. Doors open at 5:30pm

Artist - Clare Dolan: Clare Dolan is a Nurse/Puppeteer whose enthusiasm for everyday life led to the creation of the Museum of Everyday Life in Glover and the great period of growth it has enjoyed in the early part of this Century. Her early interest in object collection and her experiences as a touring puppeteer with the Bread and Puppet Theater during her formative years informs the ever-expanding activity of the Museum as it pursues its mission of glorious obscurity.

Musician - Farm Song: Farm Song is a group of farmers, homesteaders, and friends who love to sing. As long as people have been farming, they have been singing about it: harvest and planting songs, songs to influence the weather, songs about or for livestock, songs to bless trees and animals, ritual songs to be sung at solstices, equinoxes and other auspicious times of year. Josh Karp, Maria Schumann, Kristin Urie, Jeff Fellinger and Emily Gletsos have been sin ging together in various formations for over 10 years. With backgrounds in farming, folklore, painting, puppetry, musicology, carpentry and teaching, the singers bring together their diverse backgrounds to create a unique musical experience. Their goal is to sing these ancient (and some not so ancient) farm songs on actual working farms—they have sung in apple orchards and cheese caves, in barns and in pastures: to bring music out of the concert hall and back to its agricultural origins. Their repertoire includes Czech sheep calling songs; Lithuanian ritual solstice ‘sutartines’—trance inducing rounds with odd rhythms and harmonies that bless the grasses and bees; shepherding and ploughing songs from the British folk tradition; Shape Note hymns composed by Vermont farmers at the turn of the 18th/19th century about death, harvest and hardship; work songs and harvest songs from Caucasus Georgia; and more.

Poet - Kerrin McCadden is the author of Landscape with Plywood Silhouettes, inaugural winner of the 2015 Vermont Book Award, as well as the 2013 New Issues Poetry Prize, chosen by David St John. She is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Literature Fellowship, a Vermont Studio Center Fellowship, and the Sustainable Arts Foundation Writing Award. Her work has received support from the Vermont Arts Council and the Vermont Arts Endowment Fund. Her poems have appeared in Best American Poetry, The Academy of American Poets’ Poem-a-Day series, Verse Daily, and in such journals as American Poetry Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, The Collagist, Green Mountains Review and Rattle. A graduate of The MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, she teaches English and Creative Writing at Montpelier High School, and is the associate director of the Conference on Poetry and Teaching at The Frost Place. She lives in Montpelier, Vermont.

Food - El Hornero - Locally sourced and made international savory and sweet pastries.

Fences

Fences Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, August Wilson’s Fences explores the evolving African-American experience on the brink of the Civil Rights Movement. August Wilson's American classic tells the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball league who now works as a garbage man in 1950's Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and son, who now wants his own chance to play ball.

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

Since the arrival of the first itinerant portrait painters in the colonies, Americans have created portraits to commemorate loved ones, glorify the famous, establish national myths, and honor shared heroes. Whether on canvas, in stone, in bronze, on film, or in binary code, we spend considerable time creating, contemplating, and collecting our likenesses. This exhibit, which brings together 90 portraits from more than 20 collections, explores and explains Americans’ 300-year fascination with images of themselves. Free

metal madness: a one-man show of artist-designed steel works

metal madness: a one-man show of artist-designed steel works Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Wrought iron and steel accents add a special element of warmth to the Brandon Artists Guild. Lamps, weathervanes, candleholders, and coat racks are just a few of Dick’s work that will be shown.

Dick combines his talent of drawing with metal in creating his gallery work. Dick ‘s custom work can represent any kind of imagery, such as automobiles, sailboats, and animals. He is also willing to try and help with metal repairs, large and small.

The community of Brandon and the Brandon Artists Guild is fortunate to have Dick Kirby as a member. He is quick to see what needs to be done and does it, such as coming in daily to give breaks to the gallery attendants and keeping the sidewalks snow free. His cheery personality is always welcome. He is one of the original members of the gallery.

As a young man, Dick served his country and learned the basic skills of welding. After surviving Korea, he continued his military career and honed his welding skills working on the Redstone Rockets in Alabama. Some of the work involved climbing very high to construct rocket launch gantries which were inspected thoroughly and had to be perfect.

After serving in the military, Dick accepted a job as a lineman for Central Vermont Public Service, which he did for 37 years. He raised his 4 children in Brandon. He was active in Little League and served on the Pico Mtn. Ski Patrol.

Debbie Kirby, Dick’s wife, is known locally for her fiber art business. Together they raised and bred miniature Angora Goats. Dick and Debbie can be seen regularly at the summer Brandon Farmers Market, each selling their own work together.

The opening reception of Metal Madness will be on Friday March 3, 5 – 7pm, and will be on exhibit through April 30th.

The Final Cut

The Final Cut Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Castleton Downtown Gallery in Rutland is pleased to present a collection of works by artist Pam Brown. The exhibition will run from March 29 through May 6, with an artist’s reception scheduled for Friday, April 7th from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

Brown uses synthetic polymer clays, recycled sheet metal, copper, rubber and fabric to model anatomical shapes that incorporate and replicate a variety of figurative, organic and animal forms. ”Within a sculptural context my concerns and ideas relate to beauty, order, delicacy, ferocity and resiliency in the natural world. In painstaking detail, I use pattern and ornamentation to emphasize the extremes in nature and to characterize the dichotomies of the organic and the manufactured, objecthood and allusion, abstraction and representation.” – Pam Brown

The Castleton Downtown Gallery is located in the Center Street Alley on Center St. in Downtown Rutland and is open Wednesday through Saturday with hours of operation from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Time: 3/29/17 11:00am - 5/6/17 6:00pm

"Focus on the Sheldon: A Five-Point Perspective"

"Focus on the Sheldon: A Five-Point Perspective" Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Beginning in the fall of 2016, five local Middlebury-area photographers have been exploring the collections of the Henry Sheldon Museum and found a wealth of inspiring material. Photographs of the objects they discovered will be on view at the Museum in the exhibition Focus on the Sheldon from March 7 through May 13, 2017. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 10, 2017, 5 – 7 p.m. In addition, at noon on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, the five photographers will participate in a panel discussion led Pieter Broucke, Middlebury College Professor of Art and Architecture.

Suki Fredericks, Paul Gamba, Kate Gridley, Kirsten Hoving and Eric Nelson have photographed items ranging from dolls to fabrics and eyeglasses to a sculpted dog and a life-size horse. In the process they have interpreted their subjects from a variety of perspectives.

Building on her interest in photographing animals, Fredericks focuses on a variety she found at the Sheldon, with surprising results. Gamba zeros in on fabric and lace patterns, drawing attention to the details of thread and stitching. Although she works primarily as a painter, Gridley applies her interest in portraiture to a series of moody photographs of dolls, whose personalities emerge through her lens.

Hoving investigates the Sheldon’s historic storage barn to produce eerie images of boxes of old tools and other strange objects. Nelson, who has been making small-scale sculpture for many years, photographs intricate compositions of small items ranging from toy soldiers to opera glasses.

In all of the photographs, recognizable objects are altered through light, composition, color, viewpoint, or post-processing. Paired with the actual objects, the photographs demonstrate the lure of the Sheldon’s remarkable collections and the transformative power of photography.

Focus on the Sheldon will feature both the photographs and the objects, representing only a small portion of the extensive collection of unique treasures amassed since the Museum’s founding in 1882. The exhibit is curated by Kirsten Hoving, the Charles A. Dana Professor of Art History at Middlebury College, where she teaches courses on modern art and the history of photography. A photographer herself, Hoving has shown her work in a variety of solo and group shows around the world. Her collaborative photo project, Svala’s Saga, done with her daughter Emma Powell, is currently on view at the Southeast Center for Photography in Greenville, SC and at the Far Eastern Museum of Fine Art in Khabarovsk, Russia. A longtime fan of the Sheldon Museum, Hoving has enjoyed getting to know the collection in greater detail through this project.

The Henry Sheldon Museum offers a diverse, in-depth look at the history and art of the Mid-Lake Champlain region of Vermont. The Museum is located at One Park Street in downtown Middlebury across from the Ilsley Library. Museum hours: Tues.-Sat. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Admission to the Museum is $5 Adults; $3 Youth (6-18); $4.50 Seniors; $12 Family

Time: 3/7/17 10:00am - 5/13/17 5:00pm

Studies in the Art of Chance

Studies in the Art of Chance Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Laura Jane Walker
Studies in the art of chance
Cotton Steel & Shellac

Meticulously placed steel nails and cotton string lend the works a mesmerizing effect. Burns in abstract shapes – reminiscent of ink blot tests – add a quality of the unexpected. Her goal, she says, is to “show how any spill (chance) has in it the opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve.”

There will be a reception with the artist during Montpelier Alive's Art Walk, May 5, from 4 - 7 p.m.

Artist Statement:

The philosophy of my work is closely married to my process. One is to accept that some things cannot be controlled. Spilling salt water on a panel, followed by working thread between the border of the panel and the borders of the spill. This work plays with opportunities between one point and another. The reading is a chance pattern, and the nails create borders between the reading and the edge of the board. This gives me the option to map ways to travel from one point to another, all the time directing the composition. The goal is to show how any spill (chance) has in it, the opportunity to learn, grow and evolve.

The SHE Project - Part I

The SHE Project - Part I Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The SHE Project – Part I
Kristen M. Watson and Mary Admasian

With a nod to the tradition of femmage, art constructed of found and saved objects that express a female narrative, the artists use mirrors, cosmetics, beautification products, and natural elements to address themes around self-confidence, worth, and age-related sexual power. They explore their own experiences as targets of aggressively marketed “beautification” products that promise youth, glamour, and success. Watson & Admasian create compelling works that comment on the influence of history, social norms, perception, social media, and vanity on the current state of womanhood.
