Signs of Life

Signs of Life Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Great Hall presents its sixth annual showcase, Signs of Life, an exhibition featuring the works of husband and wife team Roger Sandes and Mary Welsh. The show will open with an artist’s reception for the public on Friday, October 14 at 5p at One Hundred River Street. Wine and light refreshments will be served.
Signs of Life offers the opportunity to extend the glories of Vermont’s summer featuring contemporary images of natural beauty and abstract form. Figurative works on nature-based, multi-cultural and art historical themes have been the subject of Roger Sandes’s work since moving to Vermont 35 years ago. His large, iconic paintings incorporating symbols of life and human creativity hang in 32 states, D.C., Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, England, Germany, Switzerland, and Morocco.
Roger Sandes’s paintings look like silk and feel like eggshell. “My glazes and washes are highly translucent. Light can pass through the pigment and bounce off of the white ground. That way the colors can glow. I hope to create objects of contemplation that will attract the eye and reward the viewer with layers of meaning, delightful color, and with allusions to living well.”
Mary Welsh’s collages are made of found materials from art magazines, art books, calendars and end papers which are glued with acid free acrylic medium on birch or mahogany plywood panels that have been prepared with acrylic gesso. Mary explains:

“My collages are depictions of what we all take for granted — houses, rooms and their contents. Viewing these scenes evokes memories and fantasies….”

Description:

Berlin, Vermont, resident Linda Mirabile will display her most recent work in the CVMC gallery. This series is all about birds and bird-related images. Linda's portraits of birds, both resident and from other parts of the world, are larger than life and extremely detailed. Her goal with this new work isn't so much about being anatomically correct (although she is) but about capturing the essence and personality of our avian neighbors. Her work is primarily done in acrylic on either Fabriano hot-pressed watercolor paper or birch panels. The show is open 24/7 as this is in the CVMC gallery space in the hospital lobby.

Bits & Pieces, Assembled Antique Elements by Warren Kimble Exhibit

Bits & Pieces, Assembled Antique Elements by Warren Kimble Exhibit Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

“No cows, no pigs, no houses, no chickens!” was Warren Kimble’s statement regarding his new work being presents at Frog Hollow for the month of March.

Known as one of America’s foremost contemporary folk artists, these words may come as a surprise to some. Nationally recognized for his Americana images evoking a simpler and less complicated time featuring exactly the contents he is exiling from his new work, Warren Kimble in recent years has chosen to venture into new artistic horizons, most notably in his explorations into abstract paintings. Beginning with his “Widows of War” and “Let the Sun Shine” series of paintings Warren Kimble has again embraced his constant artistic evolution, switching his attentions to more found object assemblages, combining his new abstract vision with a sense of his folk art foundations. The end result is a new direction in folk art that is 100% Warren Kimble with new pieces moving more towards contemporary modern art all the while following new black and white trends in home décor.

Bold, strong and architectural in design the new work will fill the back gallery space in Frog Hollow for the entire month of March. An opening/ meet the artist event will be held Friday, March 3rd from 5-8PM.

Sunset Park, Brooklyn

Sunset Park, Brooklyn Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The photographs in this exhibition were taken over the course of two days spent in Sunset Park in August 2016. Sunset Park is a jewel of a public space located in a section of Brooklyn of the same name. All day and into the night, residents of the predominantly Latino and Asian neighborhoods that edge the Park stroll, compete, converse, read, picnic, flirt, and engage in a hundred other forms of human interaction. Sunset Park is the site of countless vignettes—moments of athleticism, joy, family love, friendship, and meditation. At a time when divisiveness dominates our national consciousness, the images in this show affirm that what we have in common is far greater than our differences.

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.

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.

Time: 3/4/17 10:00am - 4/30/17 5:00pm

Spirit of Odanaksis

Spirit of Odanaksis
Description:

"Spirit of Odanaksis" is the newest exhibit of the Odanaksis Art Group. This show gives the viewer the sense of the places in the Upper Valley and beyond through Odanaksis artists’ eyes.

Odanaksis, the Abenaki term for "little village," is an informal group who come together on Thursday mornings at different outdoor painting venues. Founded 13 years ago by four students in local watercolor classes, the painters found inspiration for their homework practice at a spot just north of the East Thetford/Lyme Bridge on River Road in Lyme, NH. Excitement grew, as did the size of the group. With individual suggestions or by consensus, new weekly venues are chosen and arrangements made with landowners. At least once a year, the group returns to the original spot on the River Road to make new paintings under that day's unique conditions. This year Odanaksis Art Group painted Thursdays year-round (including Christmas Eve) from Newbury, VT to Cornish, NH along the Connecticut River.

The artists exhibiting include: Jo Tate, Susan Rump, Jonathan Rose, Anne Rose, Anne Webster Grant, Helen Elder, Le Liu Browne, Linda Laundry, Becky Cook, and Gail Barton.
