Spring Around the Upper Valley
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. Working en plein air is one source of inspiration for many artists. The majority of pieces in this exhibit were started during these weekly excursions. "Spring Around the Upper Valley” features views of the area as interpreted by artists in several mediums. 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!
Opening: March 2, 2018 ~ 5-7 pm Reception to meet the artists
The Norwich Public Library is located at 368 South Main Street, Norwich, Vermont.

They Went Whistling

They Went Whistling Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Wendy Copp creates elegant, humorous, and sometimes provocative figures, garb, and structures made of natural materials that she gathers from the land. Influenced by opera, literature, mythology and science, she is interested in the hidden stories behind the absent protagonist, the contemplation of mortality and transformation, as well as our uneven relationship with nature in the modern age.

Copp grew up in Lewisboro, a small town just outside of New York City and studied fine art and biology in school. For many years, she worked designing restaurants, residences and stores and has a great deal of experience with faux painting, murals and hand painting fabric. Copp has traveled nationally and internationally, working in NYC, Japan, India, California and all over New England. As the co-founder of Very Merry Theater, she was the artistic director during its start up years. In the midst of all of this, she designed products for Chandler 4 Corners, located in Manchester, VT and worked with artisans in India and Peru.

Time: 4/9/18 8:00am - 5/11/18 4:30pm

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.
