Learn To Draw Class

Learn To Draw Class

What better winter indoor activity than drawing! Despite what you think, anyone can learn to draw. This class will teach how, if you don’t know already, or help improve your drawing if you do.

Using fundamental methods, we’ll learn how to get our subjects on paper in correct proportion, scale and with correct spatial relationships. Gradually we’ll add shading techniques to show light, shade, shadow and form. In the process, you’ll learn the most important skill of all – the ability to really see your subject.

Join us to help pass the winter and learn a new skill!

Drawing Studio Workshop
Learn To Draw – Improve Your Drawing
Saturdays, January 5 – February 23, 2019 9am to noon
Taraden Media Barn, 183 Park Street, N. Bennington, Vermont

This class will teach you to draw, if you don’t know how or help improve your drawing if you do. We’ll focus on fundamental techniques and methods, helping you develop solid skills that will work for any subject, any medium.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn to draw or to improve their drawing. Suitable for all levels of skill.

What you’ll learn in this workshop:

We’ll spend the first 4 weeks working with pencil on paper. Using fundamental methods, we’ll learn how to get our subjects on paper in correct proportion, scale and with correct spatial relationships. Gradually we’ll add shading techniques to show light, shade, shadow and form. In the process, you’ll learn the most important skill of all – the ability to really see your subject.

In the second half of the class, we’ll introduce other black & white media – charcoal, pen, white “charcoal” and toned papers. And we’ll introduce more complex and complicated subjects.

At the end of eight weeks, you will have learned fundamental methods and techniques – along with the ability to observe – that will help you draw any subject

Winter Group 2019

Winter Group 2019

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

________________

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.

ABSTRACT VERMONT : Paintings, Drawings and Collage by AXEL STOHLBERG

Paintings, Drawings and Collage by AXEL STOHLBERG

“I am constantly fascinated by what I see around me. I do not try to duplicate what I see, but make my own interpretation.”

“When people ask me, What kind of art do you make? I answer, I do everything. From painting, drawing, sculpture and assemblage, using all kinds of mediums, I am able to move between the lines of recognizable and abstract images, and feel the freedom to go in all kinds of different directions.”

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

Keep the Car Running

Keep the Car Running

Jonathan Schechner’s color photographs from the project For the Time Being explore the themes of home, belonging, isolation, and the various intersections of people and the environment. In his work, he is processing his own sense of not belonging where he lives. Jonathan moved to Vermont from Israel as a teenager in 2005 and still faces a lack of clarity as to what home is for him – and where it might be.

Kelly Burgess’ photographs from her book "Sing Me Back Home" were made on road trips across the United States between 2012-2018. Her work is an exploration of the external American landscape and an internal emotional landscape using image, text, irony, and repeating themes. She uses the road trip as a means of searching and the exploration of the cultural and social perception of loneliness. The photographs seat themselves within the context of the American road trip within photography and literature: a coming of age journey that is almost entirely male. "Sing Me Back Home" begins with the examination of a heartbreak and the ubiquitous nature of those emotions existing within the irony of isolating and creating her own world while simultaneously going out on the road to search for fulfillment.

“Close to the Cloth ” A Textile Exhibit

“Close to the Cloth ”  A Textile Exhibit

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.

Precarious Magic Paintings by Kate Emlen

Precarious Magic Paintings by Kate Emlen

Kate Emlen is keenly observant of the natural world. Her paintings are evidence of her presence there – amid the trees, at the water’s edge or making tracks in the new snow under an always moving, ever-changing sky. What’s more, she takes you with her – to witness the beautiful light. (Image included: Turnaround, oil on panel)

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

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

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

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.
