Only Yesterday

Only Yesterday Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Paul McCartney and John Lennon together again for one night only. This intimate play by Hollywood writer Bob Stevens (The Wonder Years, Murphy Brown, Malcolm In The Middle) brings to life a little known night when John and Paul were becoming the most famous young men on earth. Stranded in a hotel room in Key West, they do what many young men do when they’re bored–get drunk. They have some laughs, but as their talk turns serious, they bond over the revelation of traumatic childhood events they have in common and find inspiration for the music that changed our lives.

Advisory: Ages 12 and up.

Time: 1/31/18 7:30pm - 2/18/18 9:30pm
Location: Northern Stage, 76 Gates Street, White River Junction

EDGEWATER GALLERY at Stowe
151 Main Street, 802.760.6785

Edgewater Gallery at Stowe celebrates winter with lush landscapes by painter Dennis Sheehan. His exhibition Late for the Sky will be on view through March 9th. Sheehan works in the style of the masters of the Barbizon School, and shows influence from the American Tonalists. His exhibition at Edgewater Gallery at Stowe highlights the transitional period of dusk, farm and quiet gray winter days when the sun’s light is but a fleeting glimmer in the landscape. Sheehan works from imagination and his focus is in the power of shadows.

Dennis Sheehan hails from Boston, Massachusetts. He studied at the Vesper George School of Art and the Montserrat School of Visual Art. He teaches from his studio in Manchester, New Hampshire. Recent exhibits include a solo exhibition at the Whistler House Museum, in Lowell, MA, and the Guild of Boston Artists.

Justin Kenney "The Parley of the Curve"

Justin Kenney "The Parley of the Curve" Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Parley of the Curve, an exhibit of work by Justin Kenney, will be on exhibit at the Gallery at River Arts January 4 through February 25, 2018.

Kenney’s imagery represents architecture of society in opposition with nature. The language describes the modern push and pull that happens with loss of the natural world and the gaining of technology. Natural shapes and textures abut hard and rigid forms, developing a visual puzzle. The hard edges and silhouettes of buildings describe the anatomy of our society, while he finds the beauty in opposition in the oceans and skies. Kenney faces the quandary of how to make sense of the deep conflict with the impending technology of today.

Kenney’s paintings are created through an unconventional mix of shellac, paper, inks and graphite, sometimes introducing new mediums and materials, via “a mistake”. Kenney described one such “mistake” when he was “frantically trying to put away a can of amber and it tipped all over a beautiful and finished drawing, only to reveal a magnificent shape and color.”

Kenney graduated from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, where he studied Printmaking and worked on numerous public artwork sculpture installations. He currently resides in Brattleboro, Vermont working as a professional artist and exhibiting nationally.

The Gallery at River Arts is located on 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Monday - Thursday 9-4pm and Friday 9-2pm. For off hours please call ahead. Admission is free. Galleries are wheelchair-accessible. For more information, call (802) 888-1261, or visit their website at www.riverartsvt.org.

Joan Brace O'Neal "The White Slip Drawings"

Joan Brace O'Neal "The White Slip Drawings" Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The White Slip Drawings, an exhibition of work by Joan Brace O’Neal, will be on exhibit in The Common Space Gallery at River Arts January 4 through February 25, 2018.

Believing that creative expression plays a vital role in understanding the self, O’Neal explores her own vulnerabilities through an ongoing pencil on paper series entitled “The White Slip Drawings.” Fascinated by the human figure, O’Neal examines information about the self offered through the unconscious positions of the body.

She uses light to enhance emotion, similar to the way a painter may use color. It is the emotional charge created through the use of contrasting colors, that excites her. She creates that same charge through the contrast of blacks and whites, using light, to achieve this.


The Gallery at River Arts is located on 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Monday - Thursday 9-4pm and Friday 9-2pm. For off hours please call ahead. Admission is free. Galleries are wheelchair-accessible. For more information, call (802) 888-1261, or visit their website at www.riverartsvt.org.

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis Vermont Arts 2018
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
