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

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. Drawing from her inner subconscious world, the artist’s cast of characters rejects conventional representation and inhabit a fantastic world of their own. 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

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.

Free Admission. The Winter Exhibition also includes Dusty Boynton and Elise Whittemore.

Artist's Reception for OPEN - 2018

Artist's Reception for OPEN - 2018
Description:

Darkroom Gallery will be hosting an Artist's Reception for our first juried exhibit of the year, OPEN - 2018. For this exhibition we asked photographers to submit the images in their portfolio which best represent the kind of photo work they do. In other words, instead of the gallery setting a theme for the exhibit, entrants were invited to choose their own theme. We had a generous response, with images from nearly every photographic genre. Our juror for OPEN - 2018 is Christy Karpinski, founder and editor of the popular online journal F-Stop Magazine http://www.fstopmagazine.com/.

Among the 38 photographers represented in the 54 photos in OPEN - 2018 are several from Vermont, including Peggy Reynolds of Essex Junction, who was awarded an Honorable Mention; Kitty Stanley of Wilder; John Flynn of White River Junction; and Jennifer Miles of Georgia (VT). That's a good showing for such a small place, given that entrants came from all over the world. We'll be displaying photos by photographers from Australia, Greece, Poland, and several other countries, as well as from locations in several US states. Having so many "locals" included in the exhibit speaks highly for the quality of work that Vermont photographers create, and we hope you'll come out to support the "home team".

As always, the reception is free and open to the public, with various beverages and light snacks provided.

Time: 2/24/18 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Location: Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction
