Mountain Air, a group exhibition on view from January 15th - February 26th, 2019 at Edgewater in Stowe features selections in many media - including kinetic sculpture, woodblock prints, glass sculpture and paintings featuring big sky landscapes to familiar mountain ranges in Vermont. The exhibition is a celebration of our landscape and cold, clean winds swiftly moving through wintry days. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, January 17th from 5-7pm.

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.

For further information on the Mountain Air exhibition, please call the gallery at 802-760-6785, email info@edgewatergallery-vt.com, or visit our website edgewatergallery.co/edgewater-in-stowe/.

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

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

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.

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)

"On Making Pictures" by Thom Egan

"On Making Pictures" by Thom Egan

“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.
