Venus Rising

Venus Rising
Description:

When Julie, married mother of three, unexpectedly leaves her husband and moves in with her mother Cora, she’s shocked at what she finds in her childhood home. Insults, galoshes, and English muffins fly as the women fight for control of Cora’s life and Julie comes to grips with her own mid-life crisis. Playwright Marisa Smith, the creative mind behind 2016’s hit Mad Love, is back with a hilarious and deeply perceptive story of aging gracefully – or sometimes not so gracefully – and how we try to care for one another in the face of life’s challenges. Smith brings to bear her signature brand of humor and acuteness of language to leave us laughing and crying all at once. Northern Stage is proud to present another world premiere production nurtured through New Works Now.

Time: 1/30/19 7:30pm - 2/17/19 11:59pm

Winter Group 2019

Winter Group 2019
Description:

Jan. 12 – Feb. 24: Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts presents “Winter Group 2019,” an exhibition of new work by Josh Bernbaum, Bruce Campbell, Lyell Castonguay, Liz Chalfin, Jon Gregg, Emily Mason, Petria Mitchell, and other gallery artists.
Among the pieces introduced in “Winter Group 2019” are Bernbaum’s large, blown-glass vessels inspired by flowering cacti of the Southwest, and Campbell’s hand-operated steel and brass kinetic sculptures which let us orbit planets and stars on a tabletop. Castonguay creates a signature world of imagined avian beings as part of a larger distorted narrative, whereas Chalfin adroitly constructs her spaces by selectively eliminating or manipulating objects and surfaces. Gregg’s stylized and heavily impastoed figures float and march to an unknown pulse. We thrill to a feeling of experiencing color for the first time as Mason surprises us with her lyrical sensitivity and characteristic, innovative use of a brilliant palette. Mitchell leads us into a landscape defined by atmosphere, a secret place we all imagine we’ve visited, where night and day share a delicate balance.
New to MGFA is artist Pat Gerkin, whose richly patterned and textured encaustic and mixed-media sculptures and paintings suggest topographical or bioglogical themes.
Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.
Gallery hours: Wed. – Mon., 11 - 5

Time: 1/12/19 5:00pm - 2/24/19 5:00pm

Featured artists include: Matt Brown, Galen Cheney, TJ Cunningham, Rory Jackson, Rachel Moore, Homer Wells and Judith Wrend, among others. Artists are responding to the following statement:

Crisp, cold mountain air heightens the senses. Invigorating. Cleansing. Mountain air has the power to clear the mind. Mountain air whirls in the sky over peaks and tumbles down ridges and along rivers- stirring the birds, trees and adventurers in its path. In a winter storm, mountain air can bring all in its path from fury to stillness and snow cover.

Paintings, Drawings and Collage by AXEL STOHLBERG

Axel lives in Montpelier, VT and exhibits extensively throughout Maine and Vermont.
