August Burns & Heidi Broner, New American Realism

August Burns & Heidi Broner, New American Realism
Description:

The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St in Montpelier, Vermont is pleased to announce the New American Realism exhibit of Vermont artists Heidi Broner August Burns. The exhibit runs from October 31 through December 22, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 2, from 5:00-7:00 pm. The reception is free and will offer an opportunity to meet the artists, purchase art and enjoy refreshments. There will be a Gallery Art Talk with the artists on Friday, December 1 at 6:00 pm. Broner and Burns’ will discuss their artwork followed by a time for discussion with the audience. Ginny Callan, the Gallery’s Executive Director said ”We are thrilled to have two exceptional Vermont artists teaming up together for this joint exhibit. This show is one of the highlights of the Gallery this year and is not to be missed!”

Heidi Broner http://www.heidibroner.com/ grew up in a family of artists outside of New York City, immersed in an atmosphere in which drawing and painting were a natural, delightful part of daily life. Her interests have led her to work in a wide variety of media. She has illustrated books, designed and painted murals and worked for many years with the Bread and Puppet Theatre as an artist and performer. In 1999 she began working in the Vermont granite industry hand engraving custom drawings directly onto black stone. Working alongside the stone craftsman has given her a deeper appreciation of the skill, patience and attention to the task that is developed by people who work in the trades. In 2003 she began her At Work series of paintings, which formed the basis of a solo exhibit at the Vermont Governor’s office in 2009. Her work has been collected by both private individuals and corporations.

August Burns http://augustburns.com/ is an award-winning portrait and figurative painter who seeks to capture the character and essence of her subjects in her art. Her paintings and drawings, which have been exhibited in galleries and shows throughout the United States, have been praised for their veracity and depth. August received her early training in the studio of a master artist, where she learned the fundamentals of oil painting. Arriving in art school, she was quickly disillusioned by the focus on abstract and conceptual art and found her way into a career in midwifery and women’s health around the world. August credits the intimacy of her portraits to that work. She states, “I fall in love with the beauty of each of my subjects.” August recently had the honor of painting the official portrait of Governor Peter Shumlin, which now hangs in the Vermont State House. She works out of her studio in Middlesex, Vermont.

Also showing are paintings from the Gallery’s permanent collection of the Work Progress Administration and the T.W. Wood permanent collection. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12:00-4:00 pm and by appointment. The Gallery is located at 46 Barre Street in the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, VT.

For more information contact the Gallery’s Director Ginny Callan at 802-262-6035 gcallan@twwoodgallery.org or go to www.twwoodgallery.org
