"Ascent (Part One: Eulogy)" by Ryan Geary

"Ascent (Part One: Eulogy)" by Ryan Geary
Description:

Ryan Geary’s exhibition Ascent (Part One: Eulogy), a collection of 2D and 3D collages, will be on display in the Copley Common Room at River Arts January 21-March 28, 2019. An artist talk and opening reception will be held on Thursday, February 7, from 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

Ascent (Part One: Eulogy) tells the story of multiple Americas. Geary says “At once it is a story of the death of the America we have been taught to know, and the story of an America that has been enslaved, oppressed, beaten, and marginalized. It is the story of an America that is rising despite the entrenched power of its oppressors and the story of an America that is destructively flailing about in its death throes”. Through images of our past and present, images used in their historical context or just for their symbolic and emotional power, Ascent is an attempt by the artist to deconstruct the “reality” and “history” of the America he, as a white male, has known. According to Geary, it is an attempt at “scrubbing through the whitewash of history and seeing the America worthy of veneration”.

Ryan Geary is a multimedia artist currently focusing on collage. A New Jersey native, he has been assembling collages since the age of eleven. “As a child I was limited in the material I had access to so I relied on newspapers, thrown away magazines, and books from free piles.” Ryan became comfortable working within the parameters of the material on hand and as a result, current events, advertisements, and historical images are part of the recipe and inspiration for much of Geary’s work. Ryan’s work has been exhibited throughout Vermont and has also been featured in several International Collage Exhibitions in Berlin, Germany, and Sebastopol, California. He is the owner and curator of The Hive Gallery and Gifts, and lives in Waterbury with his family and two best dog friends.

Gallery open Monday-Friday and Every 1st & 3rd Sunday from 9am-4pm. Call (802) 888-1261 or visit RiverArtsVT.org for more information.

“Close to the Cloth ” A Textile Exhibit

“Close to the Cloth ”  A Textile Exhibit
Description:

The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St in Montpelier, Vermont at the Center for Arts and Learning is pleased to announce the opening of “Close to the Cloth”, a textile exhibit featuring the work of Barbara Bendix, Karen Henderson, Stephanie Krauss, Skye Livingston, Kate Ruddle and Neysa Russo. The Gallery has assembled a varied group of Vermont fiber artists that showcase a range of techniques and sensibilities toward textiles. The work ranges from pieces seated firmly in traditional craft to conceptual work that uses fiber as a vehicle, and work that straddles the divide. “Close to the Cloth” will be on view in the Group Exhibitions Hall.

Reception
There will be an opening reception on Thursday March 7th from 5:00-7:00 pm. The reception is an opportunity to meet many of the artists and enjoy refreshments and purchase local art at affordable prices. Also on exhibit are works from the Gallery’s permanent collection. The Gallery is located at 46 Barre Street at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, VT.

Demo Day – Saturday - March 23rd – 1-3 pm.
Artists will talk about their work and share textile techniques from their work. Skye Livingston will give a demonstration on natural dyeing. Kate Ruddle will give a demo on fabric manipulation to include such techniques as creating three-dimensional forms with pleating and flounces. This is an eclectic group of textile artists, so the techniques will cover an interesting array of techniques.

We invite you to visit the gallery and enjoy the work of these diverse textile artists!

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12:00-4:00 pm and by appointment.
All shows are free and open to the public.

Time: 2/16/19 12:00pm - 3/29/19 4:00pm

"On Making Pictures" by Thom Egan

"On Making Pictures" by Thom Egan
Description:

“On Making Pictures”, an exhibit featuring wood block prints, lithographs, and colored low reliefs by Artist Thom Egan, will be on display at the Gallery at River Arts from January 21-April 19, 2019.

A Reception & Artist Talk will be held on Thursday, February 7, from 5-7pm, and will include a brief introduction by the Artist on three topics: Art & Craft -how they differ and where they overlap; how and why the work on display is made; and art and audience – why might these pictures matter to you. Opportunity for questions and discussion will follow. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

When describing his work, Egan says “A focus of my work is the simultaneously complex and unified character of nature. In making these pictures; physical properties (e.g. structure, density, temperature, etc.) are related by means of process (e.g. gradation, stratification, fragmentation, synchronization, etc.). These various components are then set in an archetype (e.g. a mountain, bindings, a gate, an egg, a column, etc.). The overall aim being to effect a harmonious, if uneasy, balance which is evocative of experience. In this way the paradox (i.e. the many, the one) approaches a resolution; such that whatever the complexities involved become unified and the image rings true.”

Gallery open Monday-Friday and Every 1st & 3rd Sunday from 9am-4pm. Call (802) 888-1261 or visit RiverArtsVT.org for more information.

Time: 1/21/19 9:00am - 4/19/19 5:00pm

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

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture
Description:

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture
Photographs by Federico Pardo / Interviews Vermont Folklife Center
On display through Summer 2019

Ice Shanties is an exhibition about the structures, people and culture of ice fishing seen through the lens of Vermont-based Colombian photographer Federico Pardo. Pardo’s large format color photographs of ice shanties at “The Meadows” in Brattleboro, Vermont are paired with audio reflections from the shanty owners drawn from interviews by the Vermont Folklife Center.

While Pardo’s shanty portraits provide a window into the material culture of ice fishing, the shanty owner interviews are an opportunity to engage with the human side—the personal, familial and recreational culture—of this winter activity.
