Bill Schubart & Peter Miller Reading & Talk

Bill Schubart & Peter Miller Reading & Talk
Description:

Authors Bill Schubart and Peter Miller will read from their new books, Lila & Theron: a novel and Vanishing Vermonters: Loss of a Rural Culture, respectively, and will talk about what it's like to be a Vermonter writing about the rural Vermont landscape and its many characters. Q&A and book signing to follow.

Free and open to the public.

About Lila & Theron:

Set in rural America and spanning much of the 20th century, Lila & Theron captures the spirit of the American rural experience, as it relates to personal stories of love and sacrifice. Award-winning author and public radio commentator Bill Schubart first introduced us to Lila and Theron in his 2008 collection, The Lamoille Stories.

"Through the eyes of Lila and Theron, Schubart manages to not only give us a great love story, but also an homage to an icy hardscrabble Vermont, and a portrait of an evolving rural America in the 20th century. This book is both heartbreaking, tender and as real as a winter day. I loved it." — Thomas Christopher Greene, bestselling author of The Headmaster’s Wife.

About Bill Schubart:

Bill Schubart is both an award-winning novelist and a political and cultural commentator heard weekly on Vermont Public Radio (210,000 listeners). He is a frequent public speaker on writing and entrepreneurship. Bill grew up in a small town in Lamoille County in Northern Vermont. In his largely French-Canadian family, he heard countless stories that fed is desire to write them down.

About Vanishing Vermonters:

The 160-page book includes photographs and quotes from rural Vermonters who discuss their home state as it is today. Some are good thoughts; some are pretty tough. The 30 pages of photographs are black and white pictures that show Vermont as it is— abandoned homes, unique roadside signs, barns standing starkly in a field, wind turbines on mountain tops and solar fields planted in hayfields and glaring at the passer-by, snowstorms and a few unique scenics, some beautiful, some quirky.

About Peter Miller:

Peter Miller began his photographic career in 1953, assisting Yousuf Karsh. He began his career as a writer later that decade, reporting for Life. He lives in Waterbury, Vermont and is the author of five books including Vermont People and People of the Great Plains.

Artist Talk w/ Bennett Konesni

Artist Talk w/ Bennett Konesni
Description:

Bennett Konesni creates vivid works of cut paper which articulate a world in which food is reconnected with music and people are reconnected with a sense of wonder. Cutting without drawing the image out first, he uses a single sheet of black paper, a scalpel, and his mind’s eye to create these images. In addition to carving paper, Bennett owns and runs Duckback Farm in Belfast, Maine, focusing on garlic production for seed and table, culinary herbs, and teas. He is also an internationally-touring musician, focusing on northern fiddle and dance music as well as worksongs for field and forest, which he uses regularly on his own farm and teaches at workshops.

Bennett was raised in Maine and was naturally drawn into the strong communities of old-time music, art, and farming near his home. At thirteen he shipped as a deckhand aboard local schooners, spending five summers sailing Penobscot Bay and learning the traditional work songs of the tall ships as he raised sails and hauled anchors. Later, at Middlebury College in Vermont, Bennett co-founded the student farm and made Zulu farming songs the focus of his thesis in ethnomusicology. He was awarded a Thomas J Watson fellowship to spend a postgraduate year in Tanzania, Ghana, Mongolia, Vietnam, Switzerland, and Holland studying worksongs of sea, field and steppe.

Bennett's work is on display at the Sterling College Brown Library from now until September 17th. Hours are 8 am to 4 pm.

The artist talk will include refreshments! Questions? Call 802.533.9370 or email ceilidh.g.kane@gmail.com

Presence: The Human Form

Presence: The Human Form
Description:

Green Mountain College’s Feick Art Center is pleased to present the sculpture, paintings, and drawings of Kerry O. Furlani and Richard Weis. The artists share a love for the human figure, seeing the human form as the starting point for exploring deeper expressive concerns.

Furlani’s stone, wood, and plaster works are elegant statements; sensitive understandings of the way the unique qualities of the materials can be developed to make solid statements about what it is to be human. Her early training of working directly from the figure has provided a strong foundation for working in a more imaginative way, “the starting point beginning from an irrepressible desire to make…forms that stir with life. “

Furlani’s work is complemented by Richard Weis’s bright, dynamic paintings and figure studies, integrating line, form and color in ways that allow the viewer multiple avenues from which they can explore the idea of humanity. Weis’s “works in this exhibition are artifacts of an exploration of the human form and spirit. They represent an effort to examine what it is to be human in ways not readily visible in the observable world.”

Kerry O. Furlani studied at the Frink School of Figurative Sculpture, in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Richard Weis is a Green Mountain College professor emeritus with a long career exhibiting his work and teaching in the U.S. and abroad. Both artists have studios in the Journal Press Building at 188 Main Street in Poultney, Vermont.

Patrick Dunfey: Large Paintings on Paper

Patrick Dunfey: Large Paintings on Paper Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Large paintings on paper, some measuring 60” x 85”, represent Patrick Dunfey’s latest work, created in 2017. The paintings are made on hot press watercolor paper using tempera and pigmented gesso. This dynamic new work in flat planes of saturated color alters perspective, exposing water and wood in unusual relationships. Shredded trees along a rushing stream, a lone dock on a still lake, a cabin door with a thin stream of light— in this expanded scale these dominant images might jar long-forgotten memories; mysterious evocations. Also included in this exhibition are small, framed paintings on linen.
A New Hampshire native, Dunfey received his BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 1981. He has lived in Hanover, NH since 1985, and is Head of Exhibitions Design and Planning at the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth.

Fantastic Wantastiquet Festival

Fantastic Wantastiquet Festival Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Fantastic Wantastiquet is a new 'umbrella' festival covering Windham County and the immediate tri-state area, including Cheshire County NH and Franklin County MA. Most activities are concentrated in and around the Brattleboro area, but we explicitly embrace and publicize all arts and cultural activities in the larger area, particularly in the West River (Wantastiquet) valley watershed. The name 'Fantastic Wantastiquet' re-claims the original Abenaki name for the West River -- Wantastiquet -- and the larger Festival embraces traditional arts and cultural forms. In this inaugural year, the Festival is taking on special significance because Brattleboro has decided to embrace the Indigenous Peoples Day initiative in place of the National Columbus Day holiday weekend.

Portrait of a Vermont Landscape: Paintings by Norma Jean Rollet

Portrait of a Vermont Landscape: Paintings by Norma Jean Rollet Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

The Brandon Artists Guild (the BAG) celebrates Vermont's colorful scenery with a new exhibit of paintings and pastels by Middlebury artist Norma Jean Rollet. The show, "Portraits of the Vermont Landscape" runs September 1 through October 31. Opening reception is Friday, September 8, 5-7pm at the BAG, 7 Center Street, Brandon.

Rollet, who attended the New England School of Art and Design in Boston, moved to Vermont in 1983, and became captivated by the diversity of the landscape. As she describes it, "From mountains to meadows to farm fields and woodlands, the characteristics of the Vermont landscape are no different than the individual features of its citizens. The beauty of the countryside forming its profile and features is the essence of what I hope to portray in my work.”

Working in oils and pastels, Rollet paints in plein air when the weather allows. "The long winter months of Vermont drive me indoors," she concedes, "but on location color studies, notes and photographs allow me to complete pieces more comfortably in my studio."

The recipient of several awards for her work, Rollet is a member of the Vermont Pastel Society, Pastel Society of America, Degas Pastel Society, and International Association of Pastel Societies.

The BAG welcomes the public to the opening reception for Norma Jean Rollet's show, "Portraits of the Vermont Landscape” on Friday, September 8 from 5 to 7 pm. The gallery, at 7 Center Street in Brandon, is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10AM to 5PM, Sundays from 10AM to 4PM. Information: 802 247-4956. www.BrandonArtistsGuild.org.
