Portraits of a Different Kind by Sande French Stockwell
Description:

Magic from the ancients to the present is embodied in Sande French Stockwell’s recent sculptures and drawings. And her work begs you to be a part of this manifestation, to react, to think, and pose more searching questions about your life and your relationship to our deep and ancient past. Through this search of ancient connections are our new possible beings and Be-comings. Many of these “beings” are on display as the “Portraits of a Different Kind” exhibit at Axel’s Gallery in Waterbury, Vermont. Sande French-Stockwell has presented her latest pieces: both works on paper and in the round and invites you to celebrate your dreams!

Ms. Stockwell has fallen in love with the creative freedom newly found in plaster. Come discover how a single change in medium has allowed one artist to flourish creatively.

“Working with plaster allows a quick and instant breath of life into these beings I sculpt. I use my hands to shape and form the traces of a hypnotic yesteryear, a raw present and magical future.”

Meet the artist Friday, April 13th from 6-8pm. This event is open and free to the public. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.

American Wood Sculptor John Cross: A Contemporary Figurative Folk Artist

American Wood Sculptor John Cross: A Contemporary Figurative Folk Artist Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

In celebration of his 60th reunion at Middlebury College, the Henry Sheldon Museum offers a retrospective of the whimsical wood carvings of John Cross, a masterful contemporary folk artist.

Few would have predicted that an economics major at Middlebury College who earned a master’s degree in business at the University of Chicago would have begun carving during his career as a creative copywriter at a premier New York advertising agency. Humor, perseverance, and imagination are the skills reflected in all phases of his life journey.

John Cross began whittling while watching the filming of commercials for which he wrote the scripts for Proctor & Gamble and for Toyota. His ad copy promoted such iconic brands as Scope mouthwash and Crest toothpaste. During the day he wrote jingles from his advertising office in New York City, then headed for 813 Broadway where he shared a rented loft with sculptor William King, coincidentally in the same building where Wolf Kahn painted. Kahn, who now maintains a summer studio near Brattleboro, VT, is known for his sumptuous landscapes, and King, who died in 2015, worked in clay, wood, bronze, vinyl, burlap, and aluminum. Cross, King, and Kahn were among the poets, artists, and museum professionals who gathered for drinks and conversation at the renowned Cedar Tavern in Greenwich Village to encourage one another.

Cross has always worked with wood, in particular sugar pine. He favors figurative renderings of sports figures, especially the players and fans of the New York Yankees, artists, sideshow performers, Miss America contestants, fishermen, operatic stars, and playful everyday characters. He has researched players from the Negro Baseball League and commemorated them in compelling wood carvings. For many years Cross was represented by Jay Johnson, owner of a leading New York City American Folk Art gallery on Madison Avenue and later by the David Findlay Jr. Gallery on Fifth Avenue, and currently by the Carrie Haddad Gallery in Hudson, NY. His carvings are in the public collections of the Museum of American Folk Art and the Smithsonian, and in the private collections of Garrison Keillor and Ali McGraw.

John Cross and his wife Linda Cross, also an artist, reside and work from their home studios in Elizaville, New York. The Hudson River is nearby, as is the scenic rail line which provides them easy access to New York City galleries and museums and their son Peter Cross (Middlebury College ’93) and his family, who live in Manhattan.

The Sheldon Museum retrospective will honor this accomplished sculptor, who continues to carve and inspire gallery and museum visitors.

Our Town: Love, Joy, Sadness, and Baseball — 100 Years of Photography from the Sheldon Museum

Our Town: Love, Joy, Sadness, and Baseball — 100 Years of Photography from the Sheldon Museum Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

While still an award-winning photographer with the National Geographic, James Pease Blair summered in Middlebury, Vermont. On his retirement, Jim Blair and his wife Elise settled in Vermont year-round. Jim became entranced by the singular photography collection found in the Research Center of the Henry Sheldon Museum, where he found exceptional images that traced the citizens, landscapes, and townscapes of Addison County and the Lake Champlain region.

Collaborating with Sheldon Museum Archivist Eva Garcelon-Hart, he has chosen three dozen remarkable photographs that will be displayed in the exhibit Our Town: Love, Joy, Sadness, and Baseball — 100 Years of Photography from the Sheldon Museum from March 20, 2018 through July 08, 2018. His choices reflect a photographer’s unique eye, developed in his early training from celebrated American photographers Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind and while studying for a Bachelor of Science degree in photography at the Institute of Design of the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. Later during his long career at the National Geographic he traveled the world, advancing his art, resulting in further photographic achievements.

The exhibit features single and group portraits of Vermonters – both the celebrated and the ordinary citizen, village scenes capturing disasters and daily life, landscapes of Vermont’s treasured mountains and lakes. Stunning aerial landscape photographs were taken by George N. Lathrop (1900 – 1983). An extensive collection of Lathrop’s photographs and negatives of Addison County taken between 1930s and 1960s is part of the Sheldon archives.

100 years of life in the Middlebury region are highlighted in the exhibit. Vintage clothing and photographic equipment from the Sheldon Museum’s collection complement the exhibit.
