Glen Coburn Hutcheson, Art Exhibition, Artist Talk, 6:30pm

Glen Coburn Hutcheson, Art Exhibition, Artist Talk, 6:30pm
Description:

Glen Coburn Hutcheson presents LEFT at Local 64.

“I aim for straight but often hit squiggly” is no trick of a left hand at play with paint and pencil. In fact memory and experience on his surfaces collude in extended strokes of color like a sonic algorithm that link sky to earth, trees to form, movement to resolve.
"I don't believe in a break between de Kooning, Morisot, and Rembrandt. Ideas and traditions continue like the branches of a tree growing alongside each other. So Cubism isn't over, nor is Dutch Realism."

Time: 12/7/18 4:00pm - 1/31/19 3:00pm
Location: Local 64, 43 State St, #2, Montpelier

Tectonic Industries

Tectonic Industries
Description:

Tectonic Industries is a collaborative art partnership based in Portland, Maine, comprised of Danish artist, Lars Boye Jerlach, and British artist, Helen Stringfellow. Through sculpture, wall mounted instructional videos, physical surveys, and interactive activities that engage visitors, Tectonic Industries examine the artifice inherent within the creation of the modern myths and belief systems in popular culture. In Dreams Can Come True, the artists present a series of self-help questionnaires that look to address and solve visitor’s most pressing problems and thus help them to begin living the “life of their dreams.” Guided by a series of instructions, visitors navigate the installation in search of self-actualization which can be manifested in an interactive model they can build/leave in the gallery. Interactive and engaging, while balancing wry amusement with philosophical reflection, Dreams Can Come True, explores the impossibility of our collective, endless search for concrete answers and endeavor for self-improvement.

Pauline Jennings: Becoming Human

Pauline Jennings: Becoming Human
Description:

Becoming Human is an intermedia exhibition seeking to identify and dissolve barriers between human and wild in the Anthropocene. In the three-channel video and sound installation The Air Connects Us, two dancers can be followed as they navigate Shanghai’s bustling streets, urban forests and massive industrial sites in search of connections to wild. During the exhibit, Jennings will present a live duet, Sea Inside Our Skin, rooted in the Chinese maxim “飲水思源 (drink the water, remember its source). This duet invites the audience to witness how breath and water nourishes, propels and changes us from within. Project VT: Pauline Jennings' Becoming Human was directed by Double Vision choreographer and co-Artistic Director Pauline Jennings. Becoming Human is a collaboration with Double Vision’s Calvin Aham and Joshua Lacourse (movement), Sean Clute (music composition), Jessica Gomula (video direction), Allen Hahn (cinematography), Jack B. Du (photography) and Amy Nielson (costume consulting).

Project Vermont is a new series dedicated to experimentation by providing a setting for contemporary Vermont artists to push their artistic practice while creating new work. Presenting visual, performance, and interdisciplinary exploration from emerging to established artists, Project Vermont supports artists’ exploration of new ideas and challenges, enables innovation, and creates engagement between audience and artist.

“Sea Inside Our Skin” was made possible in part with a research and development residency and support by Vermont Performance Lab with support from the Vermont Community Foundation.

Where Would We Bee?

Where Would We Bee?
Description:

Where Would We Bee?
Featuring the work of Colleen Grout and Kim Grall
Opening Reception: January 10 at 5:30 - 7pm

Where Would We Bee?

Without ART in our lives…
Without CREATIVE EXPRESSION…
Without NATURE and a Climate that sustains us…
Without FRIENDSHIP…
Without EACH OTHER…
Without BEES?

Where would we BEE brings together the art of encaustic painting and the crafting of gourds.
Colleen Grout and Kim Grall are united in their inspiration derived from nature and revel in the singular entity that connects their very different mediums…The Honeybee.

Colleen’s encaustic medium is predominately beeswax and Kim’s gourds depend heavily on Bees to pollinate the flowers that produce the variety of gourds she uses in her work.

Colleen Grout
Colleen Grout earned her BA in Art Education from Salem State University and her MEd in Education from Antioch University. She has been working in Art Education since 1977, teaching first at the Landmark School in Beverly Massachusetts. Upon moving to Westminster Vermont with her husband and two small children in 1985 she began teaching in the WNESU District in Grafton, Bellows Falls, Westminster and currently at the Saxtons River Elementary School. She shares both her acrylic and encaustic art work each summer at the Diamond Cove Art Gallery in Portland Maine. Her open studio and encaustic work has been part of the annual Putney Craft Tour, which is the longest running craft tour in the country. She is pleased to share her new works at the Main Street Arts Gallery, having only shared the work of her students on many other occasions.

"I have been an art educator for the past 30 years passionately working to inspire children on their journey within art discovery. I spend each summer painting on the coast of Maine, primarily in acrylics. Five years ago I discovered the joy of working in Encaustics. I know melting hot bees wax and fusing it to the surface of the support brings back the child within me. The word Encaustic is taken from the Greek word “encaustikos” and it means, “to burn in.” The fun begins as I relinquish an element of control because the wax has a mind of its own. I love the luminous translucency, the thickness of the medium and the ability to add texture in so many forms. Encaustic painting techniques are described as early as the first century AD by Roman authors. It has enjoyed a renewal of popularity recently and I add myself to the list of artists who have discovered the transformative ability this medium has to offer. I wish for my work to capture a colorful moment in time and help acknowledge that everything in life is temporary."
Kim Grall
I am a multi media artist with a BFA in Studio Painting from the University of Utah. I work with many mediums in many disciplines as diverse as fiber, digital photography and printmaking as well as painting, drawing and collage. I bring my background in fine art to working with gourds grown on my property, indulging my fancy for found objects, needlework and carving. Presently I am a member of the Putney Craft Tour.

People often ask how I got started with gourds and I say serendipity played a major role. I was ordering my garden seeds one year and saw hard shell gourd seeds for sale, ordered some and got hooked. Most of my life I lived in the woods, but now living along the river in full sun, I can grow very large gourds as well as a variety of other sizes.

There are so many things I love about working with gourds; from the numerous objects you can make with them to the unlimited mediums you can apply to them. But mostly I love their long history with people. They are found on almost every continent and have benefited civilizations and cultures through the centuries. When working with a gourd I can’t help but feel that connection to another time, to another place and especially to our planet Earth.

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies
Description:

October 30, 2018 – June 1, 2019
The T.W. Wood Gallery announces an exhibit of Thomas Waterman Wood’s Master Copies.
Wood painted portraits across the US and Canada which lead to a European trip in 1858. Following fashion, Wood copied paintings in Europe to learn from the masters; such as Rembrandt and Turner. Wood made three additional trips and brought these paintings back to Vermont. In 19th Century Montpelier, these paintings were akin to an art history textbook, as many Americans wouldn’t have had access to European paintings. We invite you to visit the gallery, see these paintings’ scope, and explore how they differ from the originals.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12:00-4:00 pm and by appointment. The Gallery is located at 46 Barre Street at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, VT. For more information contact the Gallery’s Director Ginny Callan at 802-262-6035, info@twwoodgallery.org or visit www.twwoodgallery.org
