BIG PRINT! Steamroller Printing and Art Happening

This class, with Catamount Arts exhibiting artist Julia Talcott, will take you through the concept, creation, and printing of a black and white large print. For five mornings, we will work with paintbrushes, woodcut tools, power tools and more to create an image on an oversize piece of wood or linoleum. The class will culminate with a day-long steamroller printing event, during which we will print our efforts.

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.

Time: 6/1/17 9:00am - 8/18/17 4:00pm

Elise Whittemore "Specimens"

Elise Whittemore "Specimens" Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Elise Whittemore's exhibit of woodblock prints is inspired by hours of drawing dried algae in the Pringle Herbarium at the University of Vermont. The series is made from a set of ten different woodblocks, used together in different combinations, each created as a single monoprint. The prints themselves are a response to the act of printing— the accumulation of color and form on the paper—and they echo the memory of trays upon trays pulled out of cabinets filled with thousands of specimens.

Whittemore's subject matter is nature — plants, leaves, and algae — but the way she chooses to make them seems more to the point. The physical nature of creating plates makes awkward the process of ‘drawing’ and forces her hand away from familiar assumptions.

Join us Thursday, July 13th from 5-7pm, for a Reception and Artist Talk

The exhibit will be on display June 6- August 18th. The Copley Common Space Gallery is located on the main floor at the River Arts Center, 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Monday – Thursday, 9:00a.m.- 4:00p.m, Fridays 9:00 – 2:00p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 802-888-1261.

Frank Mason in Vermont: Artist and Teacher

Frank Mason in Vermont:  Artist and Teacher Vermont Arts 2017
Description:

Works by Frank Mason (1921 - 2009) will be featured at Bryan Memorial Gallery this summer alongside paintings by 45 of his students.

Mason, himself a precocious student, studied in the first class of the Music and Arts High School in New York City before winning a scholarship to attend the Art Students League. There he studied with Frank Vincent Dumond, until Dumond’s death in 1951, when he became Dumand’s successor at the Art Students League, a position Mason held until his death.

Among the characteristics of Mason’s teaching was “summers in Vermont.” Moving his classroom outdoors to the lush environs of Lamoille County, VT he taught plein air painting for a month near or in Stowe. Multiple painting students with their easels would set up alongside dirt roads, overlooking rolling fields with mountainous backdrops and perhaps a village tucked away in the distance, Mason’s choice for that day’s lessons. Critiques and meals together would follow, and this was the agenda for the entire month of June.
Whatever the magic in Mason’s reign over those summer gatherings, they took place annually for 40 years, and today, 8 summers after his death, they continue with many of his former students spending the month of June painting in Vermont.

Time: 6/29/17 11:00am - 9/4/17 5:00pm
Location: Bryan Memorial Gallery, Jeffersonville
