"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis

"Living With The Earth" by Joan Curtis Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Castleton University Art Galleries are excited to share "Living With The Earth," three collections of paintings by Joan Curtis, at Rutland City Hall. The Sunken Treasures group was engendered by abstracted still-life studies from Joan’s sculptures, which in turn suggest under-the-sea imagery. The panel group At One with Nature’s Wiles refers to humans living with dramatic changes in the world of nature. The Peaceable Kingdom series expresses the hope that we can continue to live with the wild animals of the Earth. All three collections were created between 2008 and 2015.

Time: 10/2/17 8:30am - 3/30/18 5:00pm
Location: Rutland City Hall, 1 Strongs Avenue, Rutland

Spring Around the Upper Valley
Norwich, VT- The Odanaksis Art Group invites you to come and see new renderings of “Spring Around the Upper Valley” at the Norwich Public Library from March 2 to April 27th.
Odanaksis, Abenaki for "little village," is an informal group of artists who paint weekly at outdoor venues in the Connecticut River watershed. Working en plein air is one source of inspiration for many artists. The majority of pieces in this exhibit were started during these weekly excursions.

Creating art outside lends itself to dynamic lighting and compositions, and we hope this show will lift spirits as we welcome the arrival of spring!

"Hear Our Voice" Exhibition

"Hear Our Voice" Exhibition
Description:

Kate Longmaid's exhibition, “Hear Our Voice,” will open at The Alley Gallery on Thurs. March 8, 2018 and will run through Sat. May 5, 2018.

The opening reception is Sunday, March 18 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm, with a special Artist Talk at 3:00 pm. Free and open to the public, with refreshments + live music by Guitarist Dave Burns.

This show is worth sitting deep in reflection. We welcome you.

WHO'S THIS ARTIST? Born outside of Philadelphia, but a Vermonter for over 20 years now, Kate Longmaid has always been drawn to art and understanding what it means to be human. With a BA in “Psychology and Art: Theory and Practice,” a doctorate in clinical psychology, and time studying at Parsons School of Design and the Portland School of Art, Longmaid brings to The Alley Gallery an understanding of the mind. She has studied with Gail Salzman, Catherine Kehoe, Stanley Bielen, and Peri Schwartz, and was selected as one of the Women to Watch by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C.

WHAT'S THIS SHOW? Through a contemporary approach to portraiture, Kate explore the rich terrain of individual identity and what is revealed in the intimate moments of seeing and being seen. Working in the alla prima tradition, she works mainly from life, seeking to capture a sense of immediacy, freshness, and depth in her portraits. From the privileged position of witnessing the other, she seeks to convey the unique presence of each subject as well as our shared humanity.

Following the Women's March, Longmaid awoke with a vision of graffiti scrawled across a portrait. The vision translated into a body of reworked portraits featuring slogans from recent political events, quotations, and her own words. The act of writing over the portraits has been liberating. The portraits move from the singular to the universal, merging image with voice.
