Norwich, VT- The Odanaksis Art Group invites you to come and see new renderings of “Spring Around the Upper Valley” at the Norwich Public Library from March 2 to April 27th.
Odanaksis, Abenaki for "little village," is an informal group of artists who paint weekly at outdoor venues in the Connecticut River watershed.

Creating art outside lends itself to dynamic lighting and compositions, and we hope this show will lift spirits as we welcome the arrival of spring!

"Hear Our Voice" Exhibition

"Hear Our Voice" Exhibition
Description:

Kate Longmaid's exhibition, “Hear Our Voice,” will open at The Alley Gallery on Thurs. March 8, 2018 and will run through Sat. May 5, 2018.

The opening reception is Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm, with a special Artist Talk at 3:00 pm. Free and open to the public, with refreshments + live music by Guitarist Dave Burns.

This show is worth sitting deep in reflection. We welcome you.

WHO'S THIS ARTIST? Born outside of Philadelphia, but a Vermonter for over 20 years now, Kate Longmaid has always been drawn to art and understanding what it means to be human. With a BA in “Psychology and Art: Theory and Practice,” a doctorate in clinical psychology, and time studying at Parsons School of Design and the Portland School of Art, Longmaid brings to The Alley Gallery an understanding of the mind. She has studied with Gail Salzman, Catherine Kehoe, Stanley Bielen, and Peri Schwartz, and was selected as one of the Women to Watch by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C.

WHAT'S THIS SHOW? Through a contemporary approach to portraiture, Kate explore the rich terrain of individual identity and what is revealed in the intimate moments of seeing and being seen. Working in the alla prima tradition, she works mainly from life, seeking to capture a sense of immediacy, freshness, and depth in her portraits. From the privileged position of witnessing the other, she seeks to convey the unique presence of each subject as well as our shared humanity.

Following the Women's March, Longmaid awoke with a vision of graffiti scrawled across a portrait. The vision translated into a body of reworked portraits featuring slogans from recent political events, quotations, and her own words. The act of writing over the portraits has been liberating. The portraits move from the singular to the universal, merging image with voice.

Matt Brown "Conversations With Color Woodblock Prints"

Matt Brown "Conversations With Color Woodblock Prints" Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

March 22 - May 6, 2018: Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to exhibit new and select woodblock prints by Matt Brown in “Conversations with Color Woodblock Prints”. An Artist Opening Reception will take place Thursday, March 22 from 5-7pm. The gallery will host an Artist Talk Saturday, April 21 at 5pm, which will feature a live demonstration in printmaking by Brown.

Following the Japanese hanga method, the printmaking technique used by Hokusai and Hiroshige, each of Brown’s prints is created entirely by hand using water and pigments applied to multiple carved wooden blocks. Each woodblock corresponds to one color within a print and each is transferred to paper by a small hand-held baren.

An art major in college, Brown worked for years as a builder and cabinet maker before coming across a Hiroshige exhibit at Dartmouth College, which inspired him to research the process behind Hiroshige’s work. Brown says, “Looking back I see the idea to teach myself hanga came principally from my attraction to the method as watercolor printing. The soft quality of these colors, and the juxtaposition of these colors with the clean carved graphic edges of the shapes, is what I love best. But I also love the process of making these prints: the way an image is separated into parts and put back together, the way the translucent colors blend, the way the wood, with water, interacts with the paper.”

Brown’s exhibition will include working proofs and different states of several images, providing viewers a glimpse into the artist’s continuous dialogue with his imagery and materials. Often changes made over several years create subtle, or dramatic, re-imagining of Brown’s initial vision.

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.

Time: 3/22/18 5:00pm - 5/6/18 5:00pm
Location: Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts, Brattleboro

Petroglyphs, Flora and Frenzied Encounters: The Hand-Pulled Prints of Betsey Garand

Petroglyphs, Flora and Frenzied Encounters: The Hand-Pulled Prints of Betsey Garand Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Curated by Dian Parker

These recent prints of Betsey Garand represent the continuous balance and growth of physical and psychological life. The colors are layered biomorphic and geometric shapes, combining delicate nuances with accents of vibrancy and transparency. Garand uses a combination of techniques; woodcut, monotype, pochôir, spit-bite aquatint, lift-ground aquatint, and à la poupée. The prints create the luscious varieties of form, color, and change inherent in nature. These works are fluid, amorphic, richly colored, and intensely dynamic.

Betsey Garand is presently Senior Resident Artist at Amherst College in the Department of Art and the History of Art, where she is head of printmaking. Garand has shown in many exhibitions and in numerous public and private art collections; Dadapost Gallery-Berlin, Germany; Santa Barbara Museum of Art; Hammer Museum’s Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts; Arkansas Arts Center; Tokyo Geijutsu Daigaku-Japan; Art Museum of Estonia. Awards include a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and fellowships at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony and the MacDowell Colony.
