Galen Cheney Exhibition - Look Up

Galen Cheney Exhibition - Look Up Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Edgewater Gallery at Stowe unveils new work by painter Galen Cheney in her solo exhibition Look Up . The exhibition will be on view March 10th through May 4th, with a reception on Friday, March 23rd from 5:30-7:00pm. Her artist talk will begin at 6:00pm.

The essence of the work exhibited in Look Up is process driven abstraction. Experimentation and exploration of materials are central to this body of work. Cheney’s paintings build physically in form - surfaces are built, carved, scraped into. Mixed media layers transform her paintings into a sculptural presence. Says Cheney of her process, “I want my paintings to brim with energy and tension, muscularity, fragility, and heart.” Cheney’s new body of work involves a deepened exploration of work created during a residency in China in 2015. She is now using multi-layered constructions, adding new ways of working liquid acrylic on raw canvas and collage. Cheney’s work is often described as a mixture of urban contemporary, bursting with energies of forces steeped in nature, and always pushing boundaries. Current influences are the work of Angel Otero, Mark Bradford, John Walker, among others.

Cheney, originally from Los Angeles, moved east and spent years working and exhibiting in Vermont. Her professional art practice spans nearly thirty years.The artist now lives and paints in North Adams, Massachusetts, minutes away from the creative energy of Mass MoCA. Cheney received her B.A. from Mount Holyoke College and her M.F.A. from the Maryland Institute, College of Art.

Her work has been shown and collected in Europe, Canada, China, and throughout the US. Recent exhibitions include The Painting Center in New York City, Gray Contemporary in Houston, Greenville Center for Creative Arts in Greenville, SC, and Da Wang Culture Highland in Shenzhen, China. Recognition for her work includes an exhibition award at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, residency fellowships to The Millay Colony, the Vermont Studio Center, and Da Wang Culture Highland in Shenzhen, China, as well as publication in New American Paintings, and a recent nomination for a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Painting.

Cheney will also be teaching a painting workshop “Beauty in Process” at Helen Day Art Center on Saturday, March 10.

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
