The Saturday Storefront Puppet Show Series

The Saturday Storefront Puppet Show Series
Description:

Modern Times Theater has the perfect antidote to the end of winter doldrums. It’s the Saturday Storefront Puppet Show Series, a trilogy of family-friendly events in downtown Hardwick.
Each show features live music, a pie raffle, a pre-show gramophone dance party, popcorn, cider, and, of course, the most spectacular puppet show this side of the Mississippi River. It’s Saturday morning cartoons, LIVE, right in the heart of the town that entertainment saved.
Modern Times Theater is Rose Friedman and Justin Lander. They are producers of Vermont Vaudeville, and have been performing puppet shows together since 2008.
Lander, who makes and puppeteers all the characters, promises suspense, “Each week is a different show, and each one ends with a cliffhanger-- you won’t want to miss anything! And, half the jokes are for the parents, so they have a good time too.” Friedman narrates the show and provides musical accompaniment. She guarantees a good time for the whole family: “There’s variety: music, puppetry, crankies, and if all else fails, there will be donuts made by the world famous Red Sky Trading Company!” At each show one lucky audience member will win a Red Sky cake in a raffle.
Performances are March 3, 10, and 17 at 2:00 pm at the Blinking Yellow Light Theater (the Gohl Building), 101 South Main Street in downtown Hardwick, Vermont. Good for all ages, admission is by suggested donation of $7, or $25 for a family of four. This production is made possible in part by the NEK grant from the Vermont Community Foundation, as well as support from NEKArts.

Time: 3/3/18 2:00pm - 3/17/18 3:30pm
Location: Gohl Building, 101 Main St, Hardwick

What Did the Rock Say?

What Did the Rock Say?
Description:

What Did the Rock Say? Part 1 is an exhibition of a two-year collaboration of artists Dianne Shullenberger and John Snell, currently being shown at the Emile A. Gruppe Gallery in Jericho.
Shullenberger works in colored pencil and fabric. Snell is a photographer.

Originally the mission of their project was to expose young artists to hiking to several rock outcrops and help inspire them to interpret the environment in their respective mediums: photography, writing and drawing. Thirteen middle school students participated in an organized hike to Libby’s Look in West Bolton. These students returned to their own communities to explore other rock sites. The hike was documented by Snell and will be on display as part of the exhibition.

Dianne and John, both avid hikers, continue to explore rock sites in Vermont. They have a similar way of interpreting what they see, concentrating on the intricate details of nature. This exhibition is an expression of their passion for rocks and being outside in Vermont.

There will be an artist reception on Sunday, March 4 from 2 pm – 4 pm. The show is on exhibit February 22 through March 18. At the reception writer, Zoe Fowler and poet, Mary Jane Dickerson will be reading from their works related to rocks. Cello music will be played by Maya Parry, a hike participant.

Time: 2/22/18 10:00am - 3/18/18 4:00pm

Dusty Boynton: From Within

Dusty Boynton: From Within
Description:

Dusty Boynton merges past memory and personal experience to create works that are seemingly child-like in appearance but sophisticated in gesture and expression.

Boynton’s expressive brushstrokes, vibrant color palette, and supernatural imagery give her compositions a carefree and imaginative innocence. Dusty Boynton’s exhibition for BCA Center will feature large-scale paintings, monoprints, and reliefs created over the past decade.

Dusty is one of three artists featured in the winter exhibition. Edwin Owre and Elise Whittemore are also included.

Edwin Owre: New Constructions
Description:

With an artistic career spanning more than five decades, artist and educator Edwin Owre works continuously in his Grand Isle studio creating new, colorful "constructions" that explore the possibilities of drawing and the gesture through abstract sculpture. Referencing the sensibilities of the formative American art movements of the 1960s and 70s, while embracing contemporary expressions of mark-making, Owre creates work that is exciting, immediate, and most importantly formative to a generation of Vermont-based contemporary artists working today.

Elise Whittemore: One by One

Elise Whittemore: One by One
Description:

Elise Whittemore, BCA’s 2017 Barbara Smail award-winner, has made important contributions to the vibrancy and excellence of Vermont’s arts community as an artist and arts advocate. In her beautifully designed prints, Whittemore is drawn to the physical labor of art making and how it challenges her to pursue different ways hand and material can create meaning together. The artist’s use of pattern develops a narrative that explores the physicality of printmaking as well as formal constructs that are inherent to the natural world.

Free Admission. The Winter Exhibition also includes Dusty Boynton and Edwin Owre.

Time: 1/19/18 6:00pm - 4/7/18 8:00pm
