Write for Life

Write for Life Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Writing can become your lifelong companion. Writing better helps us think better. And we deepen relationships with family and friends. This workshop will review personal letters and memoirs as well as business letters and proposals. Finding one’s voice is the starting point. Then habits have to be built to support writing, daily or weekly, if only to write one sentence a day. Becoming a writer takes inspiration and perspiration, but also elements of craft like grammar and proofing. Participants will develop a small writing project for class discussion.
Instructor: Jackson Kytle

Time: 1/10/18 9:30am - 2/7/18 11:30am
Location: Helen Day Art Center, Stowe

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.

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.

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.
