"Traces" Public Dance Happening, and Vermont Dance Alliance Launch Party

"Traces" Public Dance Happening, and Vermont Dance Alliance Launch Party Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

On June 17th, the Vermont Dance Alliance presents "Traces" a public dance happening in downtown Burlington. 11 Vermont choreographers will be spread out throughout downtown between the hours of 11am-6pm, offering an invitation to see dance in a different way. This celebration will include a moving parade and live site-specific installations. Start at 11am at the ECHO center, or get a map at any of the dancing locations.

Traces will move into the evening with a LAUNCH party for the Vermont Dance Alliance presented at Skinny Pancake and featuring Halyard Brewing!
Meet new artists, see dance films by local Vermont choreographers, enjoy delicious food from Skinny Pancake and drinks by Halyard Brewing, then dance the night away to groovy funk band STIG, all in support of launchingVermont Dance Alliance forward into a successful future!


Traces

Footprints, fingerprints, smudges on a mirror, dirt from shoes, indent on cushion, paint chipped off the railing.
Photographs of the light that day, a thank you note, crinkled candy wrapper, business card secretly tucked into your pocket.
Streaks of gold paint, ornaments hanging, string webbing a starting point to a finish line.
We create traces constantly. Marking territory, dividing the invisible and visible, creating layers of history and memory for those to come.

Simultaneously, our bodies are vessels, carrying traces of experience, knowledge, training and practice. As humans move through the world, we leave traces of ourselves behind, whether physical, material, environmental or energetic.

This free and public event has been organized as both a meaningful performance as well as an effort in community activism. This day of dance will highlight human movement and the human body’s physical potential, through structured choreography, walking, running, skating, skipping, dancing, falling, yelling, singing, playing, talking, rolling, climbing. We will locomote, travel, visit new levels in space, play with speed and duration, and quality and connection.

Time: 6/17/17 11:00am - 6/18/17 2:00am

festival of Mandolin Chamber Music IX

festival of Mandolin Chamber Music IX Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Led by August Watters, a Boston area teacher and composer, this festival is designed for the classical mandolin community and for concertgoers interested in classical chamber music.

The purpose of the festival is to create learning and performance opportunities for those interested in chamber music composed for mandolin and its related instruments (as well as classical guitar).

Participants will rehearse in preparation for a concert on Sunday, January 15th at 3 pm.

Please note that we have added a day to the Festival workshop. We begin on Thursday, January 14th, but we offer an option to start on Friday if that works better for you.

THE MUSIC
A great wealth of music exists for mandolin-guitar ensembles. Since most of it has been forgotten or out of the public eye for generations, it's an exciting time to be a mandolinist! FMCM provides an opportunity to explore mandolin ensemble music, from baroque to romantic and contemporary works.

THE PARTICIPANTS
FMCM is open to anyone who plays mandolin, mandola, or guitar, and reads standard notation. Music will be available for advance preparation. Guitar parts will be written in standard classical guitar format, although pick-style guitar may substitute for mandola.

THE PROGRAM
Participants will divide their time, roughly evenly, between ensemble rehearsals and workshops. Chamber ensembles will be assigned according to preference, ability, and interest. A choice of workshops will be available, addressing technique, repertoire, and theory.

THE CONCERT
The workshop will culminate in a public concert on Sunday at 3 pm. August Watters will perform with the New England Mandolin Ensemble and Festival participants. Together we'll put together a wide-ranging concert, illustrating the many sounds of the concert mandolin. Tickets for the concert may be purchased HERE.

THE FACULTY: AUGUST WATTERS
August Watters is a multi-stylistic, improvising mandolinist, composer/ arranger, and teacher in the Boston area. He has performed with some of the leading figures in today’s revival of this most elegant instrument, and the advancement of its musical traditions. His work as an interpreter, improviser, composer and arranger bridges contemporary classical music, jazz, folk music traditions, and the historical concert mandolin repertoire.

For more visit August Watter's website.

THE WORKSHOP
Participants may arrive and register between 4 and 6 pm on Thursday. The program begins with dinner at 6 pm Thursday night and ends with the concert Sunday afternoon.

Fish, Fowl & Flowers: Woodcarving and Photography

Fish, Fowl & Flowers: Woodcarving and Photography Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Brandon Artists Guild (the BAG) welcomes spring with a new exhibit of floral photographs by Richard Conrad and wildlife woodcarving by William Barnard. The show, "Fish, Fowl & Flowers" runs May 3rd through June 27th . Opening reception is May 5th, 5-7pm.

Vermont artists William Barnard and Richard Conrad both find inspiration from observing nature, sometimes with scientific precision. "I'm a vertebrate ecologist," explains Barnard. "The beginnings of my interest in art are reflected in the pages of my field notes." Like nature itself, Barnard's carved wooden fish, birds and other animals have evolved as he experiments with new techniques and media. "My early carvings were intended to be as realistic as my skills permitted, lately I've done a few more abstract pieces."

Photographer Richard Conrad started taking pictures in New York City in the 1960s. A move to Vermont in 1995 changed his focus. "I enjoy photographing Vermont's varied countryside throughout the year as well as its small towns and villages," says Conrad. "I also enjoy garden photography. My wife is an avid gardener and landscape designer. We get to see and share our visited gardens from two entirely different perspectives."

The gallery, at 7 Center Street in Brandon is open daily from 10AM to 5PM. Information: 802 247-4956. www.BrandonArtistsGuild.org.

The Brandon Artists Guild is a nonprofit cooperative with approximately 50 artist-members. A 501(c)3 non-profit cultural organization, the BAG supports the visual arts through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and educational programs, particularly in local schools and after-school programs.

Splash of Color: Norma Montaigne

Splash of Color: Norma Montaigne Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

As Norma Montaigne enjoys working with different textures and mediums, she believes every idea can be executed in a number of ways. Color can be bold or soft; paint can be thick or washed out; surfaces can be wood, canvas, paper or of a three dimensional character. Each texture or medium is a calculated choice used to convey the concept, knowing that no one medium can solve every idea. She says searching for different mediums leads her to interesting places: “Experimenting challenges my every day and thought.” Montaigne presents a collection of her vibrant and varied work in ‘Splash of Color’ at the Compass Music and Arts Center in Brandon from May 5 through July 2 with a reception Sunday, May 7 from 2:00-4:00 pm.

Time: 5/5/17 10:00am - 7/2/17 5:00pm

Katie Loesel "Geology in the Anthropocene"

Katie Loesel "Geology in the Anthropocene" Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Katie Loesel’s current work uses abstraction and color to explore ideas of geological history, microscopic surfaces, and rock formations. Her interest in human influence on climate change and plastic as a distinct marker of our current era play into the shapes and forms. Loesel explains, "Plastiglomerate is a new type of rock formation that has been proposed as a geological marker of our current epoch, the Anthropocene, created from a mixture of natural and sedimentary elements fused by plastic from the ocean. The horror and intrigue from this distinctly human interference inspires the shape, form, and color that meld together through layers in the artwork. The appearance of these objects in the work are strangely playful, yet expose our flaws as creators of this plastic virus that is becoming layered into our history." The subjects in the artwork develop and grow in complexity throughout the process of making and layering and range from simple, overlapping shapes, to complicated structures.

The exhibit will be on display June 1 through August 18th. The Gallery at River Arts is located on 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Monday – Friday 9-4pm. Admission is free. For more information call 802-888-1261.
