Art Talk: Elise Whittemore

Art Talk: Elise Whittemore
Description:

Elise Whittemore discusses her new body of work created for her current exhibition focused on printmaking multiples, books, and installation developed over the course of the past year as part of the 2017 Barbara Smail Award. Free Admission.

About Elise:
Elise Whittemore, BCA’s 2017 Barbara Smail award-winner, has made important contributions to the vibrancy and excellence of Vermont’s arts community as an artist and arts advocate. In her beautifully designed prints, Whittemore is drawn to the physical labor of art making and how it challenges her to pursue different ways hand and material can create meaning together. The artist’s use of pattern develops a narrative that explores the physicality of printmaking as well as formal constructs that are inherent to the natural world.

Artist at Work: Dusty Boynton

Artist at Work: Dusty Boynton
Description:

BCA Center invites you to join artist Dusty Boynton for the next Artist at Work series. The two-part program will feature a gallery talk on Boynton’s current exhibition of paintings and monoprints followed by an interview-format discussion on her evolution and insights as a professional artist.

About Dusty:
Dusty Boynton merges memory and personal experience to create works that are seemingly child-like in appearance but sophisticated in gesture and expression. Drawing from her inner subconscious world, the artist's cast of characters rejects conventional representation and inhabit a fantasy world of their own. Boynton's expressive brushstrokes, vibrant color palette, and supernatural imagery give her compositions a carefree and imaginative innocence. Dusty Boynton's exhibition for BCA Center will feature large-scale paintings, monoprints, and reliefs created over the past decade.

Time: 3/15/18 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Location: BCA Center, Burlington
