Open to Landscape: Four Vermont Artists

Open to Landscape: Four Vermont Artists

After a year of closure due to Covid 19, Catamount Arts is pleased to announce the reopening of the Fried Family Gallery in its St. Johnsbury arts center. From July 1-September 26, 2021, Open to Landscape, a four person exhibition of paintings, photographs and works on paper, will be on view featuring works by Keith Chamberlin, Terry Ekasala, Anni Lorenzini and Elizabeth Nelson. The exhibition explores a range of artistic responses to Vermont’s dramatic landscape, from observed to imagined, in ways that touch upon the psychological and spiritual. Photographer Keith Chamberlin connects organic to the abstract; Terry Ekasala creates vibrantly colored dreams; Anni Lorenzini expands upon tonalist painting; and Elizabeth Nelson contemplates natural and geometric form in response to the I Ching Book of Changes. Taken together, the 35 paintings and 9 photographs in the exhibition present numerous opportunities for viewers to contemplate landscape as a way to understand the self-imposed isolation and unprecedented change we’ve all experienced over the past year.

In the Red Mill Gallery: Renée Lauzon

VSC is pleased to present Renée Lauzon-"The Solo Series", a solo exhibition of new work by Vermont-based sound artist and abstract painter Renée Lauzon. This series explores mark-making as a direct response to musical and ambient sounds. The sound or instrument drives the brushwork across the surface creating a visual/spatial record of the sound environment, while a minimal palette creates a structure for intuition, chance, and improvisation to work freely. This exhibition will be on view in the Red Mill Gallery from 8/18 - 9/30.

Can You Bring It: Bill T. Jones and D-Man in the Waters

Can You Bring It: Bill T. Jones and D-Man in the Waters brings to life the creative process that culminated in choreographer-dancer-director Bill T. Jones’s tour de force ballet D-Man in the Waters, one of the most important works of art to come out of the AIDS crisis. Through an extraordinary collage of interviews, archival material, and uniquely powerful cinematography, this lyrical documentary uses the story of this iconic dance to illustrate the power of art and the triumph of the human spirit.

Bill Brauer Retrospective

Bill Brauer Retrospective

The Bill Brauer Retrospective celebrates the career of this nationally recognized Vermont artist with an exhibition of drawing, paintings and etchings not publicly shown before.

A native New Yorker, Bill Brauer has lived and worked in Vermont for the past 40 years. Known for his sensual oil paintings, he started his career in 1964 as a printmaker in NYC, after a successful stint as an illustrator and art director. He is a graduate of New York’s School of Visual Arts and a protégé of surrealist Federico Castellon. Brauer received an individual grant from The Vermont Arts Council in 1976 and it was shortly thereafter that he switched his focus from printmaking to painting and he has been working with a brush ever since.

Brauer’s painting has gone through many changes over the years. Always figurative, always evocative and frequently sensual, he strove to be a Renaissance painter while employing contemporary design and color concepts.

"Still Life, Life Still" Art Exhibition and Opening Reception

"Still Life, Life Still" Art Exhibition and Opening Reception

Still-life painting is defined as the depiction of inanimate objects for the sake of their qualities of form, colour, texture, and composition. I suspect the artists exhibited here will agree, but I also suspect all will agree that the five artists here care little about the definition. These artists bring so much more to the genre – and perhaps it to them.
This exhibit features the art of:
Mary Ellen Bartley
Kate Emlen
Tucker Nichols
Jon Redmond
Margaret Sparrow
Each artist incorporates the elements of the ”still life” – form, colour, texture, and composition – in their work. With their well honed craft they pay homage to everyday objects. They notice and pay attention. They interpret. And then they share.

Outdoor opening reception is Sunday, September 12, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM. This is a free event, no reservations required.

Masking is required inside the Gallery.

Stone Valley Arts presents THE MONOTYPE GUILD OF NEW ENGLAND : PRIORITY PRINTS EXHIBITION

Priority Prints is an exhibition of 140 monotypes created by 80 artist members of the Monotype Guild of New England.This is an evocative collection of art work that invites us to slow down and look closely.The artists in this exhibition explored a wide range of printmaking methods beyond the direct roll of ink on a hard surface that include : etching, woodcut, linocut, lithography, screen printing, cyanotype, collograph, solar plate, gel plate and many more. To create a monotype is to work with deliberateness and intention while embracing serendipity and surprise. This exhibition of monotypes reveals a community of diverse artists dedicated to the art of the ‘unique print’. This is generous work. The exhibit leads one to discover the many ways that a monotype ‘strikes to the heart of the matter’. Open Gallery Hours : Sundays 1:00 -4:00 pm and in conjunction with all on-site events and by appointment

Vaune Trachtman’s NOW IS ALWAYS is the Inaugural exhibit for the Grand re-opening of Vermont Center of Photography

Vaune Trachtman’s NOW IS ALWAYS is the Inaugural exhibit for the Grand re-opening of Vermont Center of Photography

Vaune Trachtman’s NOW IS ALWAYS is the Inaugural exhibit for the Grand
Re-opening of Vermont Center of Photography. September 3 – Oct 31, 2021
22 High Street #205 (enter on Green street)
Brattleboro Vermont

Opening reception: Sept 3, 5-8pm (in person)
Artist Talk: Sept 15, 2021 5:30 (in person)

Statement:
Now is Always was begun during the Great Depression when Vaune Trachtman’s father, Joseph Harold Trachtman (1914-1971), shot a few rolls of film near his father’s drugstore in Center City, Philadelphia. Nearly 90 years later, her sister found the negatives and gave them to Trachtman. Working from her father’s original negatives, she combined the people from his neighborhood with her own images, many of which were shot from windows and moving vehicles. Now is Always is their collaboration across time.

There is a personal aspect to Now is Always, but Trachtman wants the work to be more expansive than a dialogue between the father she didn’t know and the daughter he knew only as a child. In Now is Always, Trachtman wants to create a feeling of collapsed-yet-expanded time.

Bio:
Vaune Trachtman is a photographer and printmaker whose work honors the methods and tones of historic processes, but without the toxic chemicals. Formerly a master printer of silver gelatin prints and asphaltum-based photogravures, she began to feel that her immune-system was being compromised by those processes. She now makes gravures with little more than light and water. Her images explore the evanescence of dreams and memory— a “fleeting, wondrous, sacred habitation” (Collier Brown, Od Review).

Vaune was born in Philadelphia and attended the Tyler School of Art and Marlboro College. She received her M.A. from New York University and The International Center for Photography. She worked in the imaging department of TIME Inc. for many years. She lives in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Now is Always is presented by the Vermont Center of Photography and has additional support from the Vermont Arts Council, NEA and the Tusen Takk Foundation. This series was started while in residency at the Vermont Studio Center.

Shelter Cultivation Project

Shelter Cultivation Project

The Burlington-based Shelter Cultivation Project is celebrating the culmination of its year-long collaborative arts project with a gallery exhibition and pop-up shop starting Thursday, August 5 at the Karma Bird House Gallery in Burlington, Vt. The show and shop will run through November 1. The Opening reception on August 5 is open to the public from 6-8 pm. The Exhibition & Pop Up Shop are open daily from 8 am - 3 pm (closed Sundays).

The Shelter Cultivation Project was started by local artist Shawn Dumont at the start of the COVID pandemic as a way to connect artists during an isolating time, with the overall goal of strengthening the broader arts community in Vermont. The response from artists was so strong that the project quickly expanded its reach throughout the northeast and even internationally.

Erika Somogyi: Luminous Bloom

Erika Somogyi: Luminous Bloom

A solo exhibition of atmospheric watercolors that blend figuration and abstraction to convey the peaceful enjoyment and contemplation of the natural world and the different sensorial qualities of energy such as sound, the flowing and crashing of water, air and heat.
Exhibition Opening 5pm Friday, August 6th. Open during events and by Appointment.

Erika Somogyi's compositions include portions of the female figure set within interlacing patterns. Young women appear in various actions in nature--reading in a garden, bird watching, listening to the sound of an emptied conch, and peering through the openings in a latticework fence. Dragonflies, butterflies, and species of flowers (poppies, daffodils, roses, and forsythia) are inspired by photographs Somogyi takes in Brooklyn of her flower garden, her childrens' excitement of viewing insects through a magnifying glass, and the unexpected appearance of wildlife in New York during the pandemic. Other elements capture memories of family camping trips at the seaside, lighting candles by a fire, playing cards, or cooling off with a handmade paper fan. Rectangular playing cards spiral like the roundness of a shell, and cascade like waterfalls. The peaceful enjoyment of the natural world, contemplation, spirituality, and calm, lend a feel of relaxation to each scene.

Somogyi uses a layered approach to creating her compositions. Starting with an under drawing, she chooses a particular set of colors to wash over the surface of the paper that she then joins with abstract patterns comprised of repeated lines and waves. From this imagery, Somogyi defines the figurative aspects of her work with paint--flowers, cards, hands, and the faces of her subjects. At times her linear patterns bend into the outline of a woman's face in profile, reverberating in space. Other times her repeated waves suggest a gaze into an endless sea, the sensorial qualities of flowing and crashing water, and different forms of energy such as air, sound, and heat.

Artist Bio:
Erika Somogyi lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She was born in New City, New York in 1977 and received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 1999. Her solo and two-artist exhibitions include 'Erika Somogyi: Reawakening,' Kristen Lorello, New York, NY, 'Violet Dawn Love Song,' Monya Rowe, New York, NY, 'Alix Smith / Erika Somogyi,' Annarumma Gallery, Naples, Italy, and 'Nature's Rituals and Mistaken Identities,' Rocket Projects, Miami, Florida. Her works have been exhibited in group exhibitions at Essex Flowers, New York, NY, ARENA, Brooklyn, NY, Griffith Moon, Santa Monica, CA, Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco, CA, and La Montagne Gallery, Boston, MA, among other venues.

Meleko Mokgosi: Scripto-visual, a solo exhibition

Scripto-visual, a neologism that comes from the combination of image and textual work, is a continuation of Meleko Mokgosi’s investigations regarding the links between these two elements in relation to the politics of representation. The artist will present a set of small and large works that are paired with different kinds of text; from poems to theoretical texts that deal with a variety of topics ranging from history to issues about the daily-lived experiences of particular sections of the population both in the United States and in southern Africa.

StJ Art on the Street Autumn Exhibit

StJ Art on the Street Autumn Exhibit

StJ Art on the Street Debuts Autumn Exhibit

StJ Art on the Street announces its new fall show featuring the work of several Vermont artists in storefront, sidewalk, and indoor galleries along Railroad Street and Eastern Avenue. The new show is free and open to the public.

StJ Art on the Street debuted during the pandemic when empty storefronts and shop windows were utilized as fine art galleries exhibiting works that could be enjoyed from the street or sidewalk. St. Johnsbury has maintained this walkable gallery while adding some indoor options including the galleries at Catamount Arts and Cosmic Cup Café on Eastern Avenue as well as Whirligig Brewing and the Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild on Railroad Street.

Art aficionados on foot might begin at the Shatterbox Gallery at 166 Eastern Avenue with the work of muralist Tara Goreau. A lifelong painter, Goreau has been creating large-scale work to inspire and represent communities since completing her first public mural as a senior at St. Johnsbury Academy in 2006. Goreau earned her BFA at Johnson State College in 2011 after studying at the Design and Arts College of New Zealand in Christchurch. She collaborated with local students to create the 16-panel “Musaic Project” mural, celebrating four seasons and four genres of music, and, most recently, a new public mural located on the retaining wall next to Catamount Arts at 115 Eastern Avenue.

Heading down Eastern Avenue, find Barbara Grey’s work at 142 Eastern. Grey earned her MFA at the University of Georgia in 1975, working primarily in fiber arts. She has shown her large, 3-dimensional fiber installations both regionally and nationally and served as the Director of Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville, GA, from 1980-1991, before moving to Vermont. In the early 2000s, Grey studied landscape painting in Italy. Since then, she has found painting en plein air to be an inspiring way to explore and appreciate the Northeast Kingdom.

The Cosmic Cup Café at 139 Eastern Avenue is showing photography by fine art event photographer Jackie Fox. Fox’s show includes a collection of medium format film photographs showcasing both urban and rural landscape. This technique of photographing is slow and methodical, resulting in capturing moments of natural beauty that may otherwise be undetected.

Catamount Arts is currently showing two exhibits. In the Fried Family Gallery, “Open to Landscape” features work by Elizabeth Nelson, Anni Lorenzini, Keith Chamberlin, and Terry Ekasala, including paintings and photography that explore landscapes in both realism and abstract form.

In the Catamount Arts Fireplace Room, a collection of work created by community members during the pandemic is on view. “Kingdom COVID Chronicles” features handmade sketchbooks by NEK residents of all ages documenting a month of life in lockdown in spring of last year.

Stop at 67 Eastern Avenue to enjoy an exhibit by Kelly Doyle. A Montpelier native, Doyle earned her MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 1990. Much of her work involves transforming existing materials into works of art. Recent works include paintings on panels recovered from home demolitions, slipcovers no longer in use, and repurposed work pants. Doyle enjoys recycling with creativity: taking apart old things and making them into something vibrant and new.

At Northern Express Care on the corner of Eastern and Railroad, Andrea Pearlman’s work will be on display. Originally from Hartford, CT, Pearlman has lived in Vermont since the 1970s after graduating from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn in 1974. Pearlman’s paintings reflect the inherent push and pull of nature and the experience of dynamic movement. She paints primarily in oils but also hooks rugs and uses wool strips when working with fiber.

Lifelong painter George Pearlman will also exhibit work at Northern Express Care on Eastern and Railroad. Pearlman studied at Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute, and Brooklyn College and was mentored by Hans Hofmann for over thirty years. He has also worked as an administrator at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson.

Harlan Mack’s work is on display at Whirligig Brewing at 397 Railroad Street. Mack is a multidisciplinary artist based at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. He employs blacksmithing, steel fabrication, painting, and oral storytelling to build an expanding, constellated narrative that invites viewers and listeners into an imaginary future. This world is generated and inspired by Harlan’s life experience, exploration and thoughts around identity, labor, perception, contemplation, fiction, community, emergence and afro-futurism.

Cross the street to visit Central Café at 418 Railroad Street to look out work by photographer Shaun Terhune. Terhune grew up in Vermont photographing rolling green mountains, cows, maple trees, and tin sap buckets. As a teen, he hitched rides into the wilds of the White Mountains to tap into a rugged remoteness he could capture nowhere else.

The Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild is hosting an exhibit by the Book Arts Guild of Vermont. “Is This a Book?” challenges conventional ideas with books that open like accordions, hang like paintings, or might at first glance be mistaken for sculptures.

Cross Railroad Street again to see the dazzling work of Uganda native and Newport resident Mwanga William at Caplan’s on 457 Railroad Street. A graduate of the Michelangelo College of Creative Arts, William works with oil and acrylic paints, cement, clay, and metal, as well as paper, wood, and fiberglass. His paintings and sculptures reflect African culture and lifestyles, and his work is on permanent display in schools, hotels, and churches throughout Uganda.

StJ Art on the Street is a public art collaboration among the Window Warriors volunteers of the St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce; Northeast Kingdom Artisans Guild; Catamount Arts; Caplan’s; the Town of St. Johnsbury; 142 Eastern; Garrett Property Management; Aine Baker; Rural Edge; and Northern Express Care.
StJ Art on the Street is brought to you by a Vermont Community Foundation Spark Grant and support from the Vermont Arts Council, the Vermont Curators Group, MSI Property Management, and Maple Groves Farm of Vermont.

Henry at 200: Collector, Museum Founder & More

Henry at 200: Collector, Museum Founder & More

Henry Luther Sheldon, founder of the Henry Sheldon Museum, was born on August 15, 1821. This year we celebrate his birthday and his collecting passions. “ … I have spent all my leisure the past year trying to benefit future generations…” wrote Henry in his 1881 diary referring to his extensive collecting of local, regional and national historical materials. This exhibit explores his life, myriad of collecting pursuits, the establishment of what has become known as the oldest community-based Museum in the country, and an outstanding archive, the Stewart-Swift Research Center. Henry amassed one of the richest but little known historical collections in all New England, rendering Middlebury perhaps one of the best documented towns in the entire region. On view will be variety of historical documents, photographs, scrapbooks, autographs, Middlebury imprints, diaries, music ephemera, relics, a lock of Napoleon’s hair, and more!

7/13/21 11:00am - 12/31/21 4:00pm

Henry Sheldon Museum, One Park Street, Middlebury
