A powerful world-roots production led by internationally renowned artist/activist and “Queen of Loops,” Māmā Mihirangi & the Māreikura weave ancient chants with intricate harmonies, traditional & contemporary instruments, beats & deep bass. The Māreikura are traditional dancers who combine women’s haka, traditional weaponry and Māori martial arts for a contemporary cultural performance that is informative, inclusive and truly inspiring.
With grace, fierceness, warmth and humour, Mihirangi’s lyrics celebrate the values, lore, medicines and customs of her lineage and culture, uplifting her audience with her infectious laughter and fearless authenticity. Her new show is a musical journey of the soul that travels back through ancient lines and melodies that connect us all.
Māmā Mihirangi & the Māreikura will be at Dog Mountain on Sunday, August 18th, as part of the 2019 Levitt AMP St. Johnsbury Music Series, which takes place Sunday evenings from 4-7pm through September 22nd.

In a show reflecting the rich cultural heritage of New Zealand’s indigenous people and celebrating feminine power, Maori group Mama Mihirangi & the Mareikura combine soulful beats, storytelling and traditional dance into a spellbinding world music experience. Using a loop pedal to record and play back her own voice, Mihirangi creates intricate, layered musical pieces out of ancient chants, socially conscious lyrics and beatboxing. Her use of guitar, keyboards, drums and traditional Maori instruments add depth to her vocal gymnastics. Though Mihirangi had already been touring worldwide for years and had been dubbed the “queen of live loops,” her appearance on New Zealand’s Got Talent in 2012 brought her a larger audience. Her current show additionally features Rita Peihopa, an expert in Maori martial arts, and Tiana King, a performer skilled in both traditional haka and contemporary dance. Using fantastic costumes, improvisation and audience participation, the group dazzles with fearless performances that at once showcase Maori culture and tap into universal truths.
Mama Mihirangi & the Mareikura toured Canada in 2018 and played for folk, roots and world music industry professionals at a conference for Folk Alliance International in February 2019. The UK’s Songlines Magazine selected the show as one of the top 3 of the 2,500 acts at the conference. Mihirangi has played festivals all over the globe, including San Francisco’s Power to the Peaceful festival, and has performed with artists including Public Enemy and Arrested Development. She previously thrilled Levitt audiences at Levitt Los Angeles in 2013.

“The Art Among Us” will be presented by the Waitsfield United Church of Christ Village Meeting House during the 2019 Vermont Festival of the Arts. The show consists of the work of 19 members of the congregation exhibiting their own creative process. The show opens August 3 and runs for three weekends, Saturdays and Sundays from 12-4 pm. The Opening Reception will be Sunday, August 4 from 12-2 pm.
Revealing ourselves, sharing our innermost thoughts, letting others in. For many, the art we make for ourselves is kept for ourselves. Sharing it, hanging it on a wall, letting others see what we have created can be a difficult step; but once done can be liberating, exciting, and even freeing. This is exactly what the congregation at the Waitsfield United Church of Christ Village Meeting House is presenting at this year’s exhibit.
Forty-seven works of art created by nineteen people are on display. Artwork includes photography, painting in a variety of mediums, drawing, woven sculpture, handcrafted wooden trucks, quilts, rug hooking, and needlework. Each piece tells a story of the individual who created it; these individuals may not call themselves ‘artist’ but can be considered such by virtue of the work they have made. The definition of ‘art’ is “the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.” The members of the congregation who painted, photographed, hooked, stitched, drew or crafted, created pieces of beauty for themselves, and now to share.
Each piece holds a story. Intricate mandalas drawn as a form of meditation. The crewelwork pieces made as an alternative to the clacking of knitting needles. The rug made to remember a beloved pet. A stunning beaded dress, handmade for a special occasion. This show is one to enjoy and serves as a reminder that anyone can be an artist.
The Waitsfield United Church of Christ Village Meeting House has been exhibiting artwork during the Vermont Festival of the Arts for seven years. “We are incredibly excited to bring this show of our work to the Vermont Festival of Arts,” said Amy Jamieson, church moderator. “Each year the Arts Committee thoughtfully puts together a show that we believe will captivate and resonate with the community.”
“The Art Among Us” will run Saturdays and Sundays, August 3 - 8 from noon – 4 pm. The Opening Reception on Sunday, August 4 will include an opportunity to meet many of the artists. Admission is free. The Waitsfield United Church of Christ Village Meeting House is located at 4355 Main Street, Route 100, Waitsfield. For more information, call 802-496-3065.

ARTIST OPENING RECEPTION August 9, 5-7pm. Claire Kelly’s engaging and cheerful glass sculptures give the viewer a gentle mirror with which to examine our contradictory world. Using the integration of traditional Venetian glassblowing and cold working techniques, she creates colorful figures and forms from glass. Her miniature landscapes populated with animals are evocative of childhood toys and stories. Though whimsical and colorful, these sculptures draw attention to the perilous and fragile existence many of these animals face, gazing off into an unknown future.

ARTIST OPENING RECEPTION August 9, 5-7pm. Justin Hoekstra’s abstract acrylic paintings achieve their intensely vibrating, almost luminous surface from application of many layers of pigments and the removal of these layers by abrading the surface with an orbital sander.
“This process is for me like that which shapes each of us in life as accumulated experience combines with pressure and time to reveal the truth of who we are.” –Justin Hoekstra

DUNCAN JOHNSON’S new body of work, though still employing the use of many thin strips of reclaimed wood scavenged from various sources in southern Vermont, are now assembled to transform into abstract two dimensional compositions finding themselves often floating within a grid, or sharing the picture plane with strips of wood focusing one’s attention in a singular direction. While continuing to nod to his interest in architecture, patterns and quilting, this new method of composing the picture plane is a fascinating new direction.

David Budbill's "Judevine" is the most popular and beloved play in the 48 year history of Oldcastle Theatre Company, and has been produced four times by OTC beginning in 1988 but has been absent from the theatre's schedule since 2004.
"Theatres, as with libraries, should make available the classics and "Judevine" is a classic American play," according to Oldcastle's Producing Artistic Director Eric Peterson, who has directed all of the company's previous four productions. "David's extraordinary play is lyrical, funny, thoughtful and thought-provoking, a bit scarey at times, sexy, ribald, and poetic." Peterson said.
Set in a fictional Vermont town the play introduces a large variety of characters making their lives in the rural Hamlet, scrapping a living out of logging, planting and harvesting Christmas trees, and other backbreaking work. Budbill's people are Vietnam vets, frazzled mothers trying to feed children on too few dollars, snowmobilers who long for clear, cold winter days gliding through snow covered woods, machinists, storekeepers, and hippies who've abandoned cities searching for a different kind of life and find one more difficult, yet somehow more fulfilling than their previous life. There's Doug, who doesn't like to work too much in the winter because it interferes with his snomachin'," Grace a fragile young woman with a darkness in her past who might have found salvation in Tommy a Vietnam vet, Black French Canadian Antoine who is a laborer and part-time philosopher and many more.

This year the Big Red Barn Show welcomes Vermont artisans into the exhibit, incorporating the previously titled “Multi-Medium” show. It’s block-buster show that will last for six weeks!
A gala opening reception is planned for Sunday, July 28th from 5-7 pm. All are invited to this free event. Enjoy area artist and artisan work, Anthony Santor’s jazz combo, tasty food, and beverages.
Each August, the Big Red Barn Art Show delights tourists and locals, appreciators and collectors, and provides a welcome activity for folks waiting for their dinner tables at American Flatbread. Children enjoy the Art Treasure Hunt, a list of questions to be answered by finding, “which painting has…?” The artists enjoy taking turns acting as exhibit ambassadors, eager to talk with guests, answering questions, and adding a little extra to our guests’ experience.
The Big Red Barn Art Show is actually three exhibitions in one: there’s the main exhibit, with up to three pieces of art or craftwork for each artist; the small works show with one wall-hung piece per artist, none larger than 16 inches wide or tall; and the Art Stall, a corner dedicated to modestly priced prints and cards.
We invite friends old and new to visit this show in the historic Red Barn at Lareau Farm – it’s a terrific experience!

Jenny Swanson’s high-fire wall pieces, each one a unique microcosm, are inspired by the art of India, and by floating lotuses she was intrigued by during her residency in Shangyu, China. Also on view are her unglazed, low-fire sculptural vessels carbonized in saggars, in bottle and funnel-like forms. Swanson’s innovative work gracefully curves and undulates.
In contrast, Holly Walker’s terracotta forms are Shakeresque and utilitarian. Rolled coils of clay are glazed with bold colors that are playful, saturated, and luminous. Walker’s painterly designs are geometric, floral, and sometimes alphabetical. Walker’s colorfully patterned rectangular palettes and disc shapes are the foil to Jenny Swanson’s silky black and white ceramics.

The Montgomery Center for the Arts will be hosting an innovative show, “Women’s Work is Never Done” from Aug 11 -Sept 7 at with an opening wine and cheese reception on Friday August 9th at 7 PM. Regular gallery hours at the Historic Kelton Hall located at 2 Mountain Road in Montgomery Center are Fri-Sun 12-4 pm or by appointment.
This unique multi-media show will feature powerful artwork created by 5 – 80-year-old women from New York, Quebec and Vermont ranging from traditional fiber and needlework to fine art, painting, and photography.
“Each work of art celebrates its creator and her stance in the world, especially just now when that stance feels under siege,” said M Sebastian Araujo – Curator and Creative Director of the MCA. “Our planet has a long history of human existence and until the 20th Century, most of the credit and status has been given to the male of the species. However right alongside the men, there have always been women: strong, driven, creative, and innovative women.
“In this show, we are celebrating the Female Spirit that has endured severe hardships and sacrifices by women of all races, nationalities, backgrounds, education, and regions. The spirit that challenged laws and regulations as well as social standards and stereotypes and organized women to change public opinion. As a result of that hard work and commitment, organizations and businesses began to slowly change all across the United States and in many nations and eventually they were codified progressive measures by governments. More women have now become empowered to contribute to their personal, family and community well-being in the United States and throughout the world. These improvements are manifested in many areas of today’s society such as the family, corporations, education, sports, healthcare, arts and culture, and the military. Despite these changes, however, the rights and health of women continue to be threatened in the United States and internationally.”

Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Light and Air, an exhibition of new oil paintings by artist and gallery co-founder Petria Mitchell. The artist’s reception and opening is Saturday, August 3, 5-7 pm, and the show continues through September 22. An Artist Talk is scheduled for August 25, 5 pm.
Educated at an early age at The National Academy School of Design, New York, and The Vesper George School of Art, Boston, Mitchell has been actively involved with art making for over 50 years as a printmaker, engraver and painter. Mitchell serves or has been on numerous not-for profit boards, panels and committees. She co-founded Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts which will be celebrating its 5th anniversary by expanding its space and moving to its new upstairs space in the fall.
Mitchell’s paintings commence with small thumbnail sketches, quick emotional notations which become the foundation of her imagined landscapes. Tonal gradation and converging lines and forms dissolve into her signature elements of accumulating layers of atmosphere and mist. “Petria’s brushwork is wonderfully integrated into the light and darkness of her work. Her brushwork has an abstract quality to it that testifies to the authenticity of her work.” (Ric Campman, 2001)

Figurative and narrative oil paintings by Deborah Brown and Mark Barry
May 25 through October 13, Saturdays & Sundays 12–5 pm
Deborah Brown's paintings focus on a lone female character, fearlessly nude, striding through a variety of natural settings, posing the questions: Do we understand the female as source of power? ..or do we reject female strength at face value? The figures are both recognizable and utterly strange.
Mark Barry's work reveals the human nature that is revealed in a flash, a glance, a second in time; moments that are not often recorded but when captured in paint on canvas provide poignant recognition of the humor, warmth, and universality of everyday experience.
The Bundy Modern, a Bauhaus modern architectural gem in the woods, is located at 361 Bundy Rd, Waitsfield, just 2 miles south of town off Route 100.

Opening Reception: August 17 from 4-6 p.m.
Exhibition on view: August 17-October 20, 2019
Guest Curator: Ric Kasini Kadour
Monoprints of yarn balls, lush fantastical landscapes, and deep, colorful abstracts: These are just some of the art viewers will encounter in this exhibition. But far from being a simple exhibition of Vermont art or Vermont artists, curator Ric Kasini Kadour invites the viewer to consider art from a regionalist perspective and how doing so impacts the viewer’s experience of art. Using the Southern Vermont Arts Center’s permanent collection as a point of departure, this exhibition will be an opportunity to consider contemporary American regionalism and the role art plays in society. A series of talks and a printed catalog will further elaborate on these themes.
Featured artists: Carol MacDonald, David Brewster, Denis Versweyveld, Dianne Schullenberger, Gabriel Tempesta, Galen Cheney, James Secor, JoAnne Carson, Judith Rey, Wendy Copp and Wylie Garcia.

Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow, an outdoor installation featuring the evocative work of three contemporary artists on view across the Museum’s expansive campus, from May 1 through October 31, 2019.

Exploring themes ranging from the anatomy of wildlife, the buoyancy of inflated steel forms, to the relationship between site-specific stone structures within the natural environment, Ebinger, Nava, and Snow push the boundaries of their respective materials and processes, revealing new experimentation with these classical elements.

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by British-born American artist Malcolm Morley at its galleries in Reading, Vermont. Hailed internationally as a pioneering figure of his generation, Morley was a founder of Super-Realism, which developed as a counterpoint to Pop Art in the 1960s. He is also remembered as an artist who deliberately broke away from the stylistic innovations which brought him this initial fame. Over a career spanning sixty years, Morley’s practice continually evolved, his paintings becoming ever more colorful, expressive and distinctive. This exhibition includes approximately 40 paintings, sculptures and works on paper created between 1964 and 2016 from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. On view from 11 May through 1 December 2019. Appointments available 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sa–Su. $10 pp. First Friday of every month, 5–8 p.m., free without a guide.
