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

Time: 1/5/19 9:00am - 2/23/19 12:00pm
Location: Taraden Media Barn, North Bennington

Winter Group 2019
Description:

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

Time: 1/12/19 5:00pm - 2/24/19 5:00pm

Keep the Car Running

Keep the Car Running
Description:

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.

Non-Toxic Printmaking: Solarplate Printing for Photographers

Non-Toxic Printmaking: Solarplate Printing for Photographers
Description:

Printmaking with solarplates is a simple approach and safer alternative to traditional etching and relief printing. The plate consists of a light-sensitive polymer surface on a steel backing. In this workshop we will print photographic images onto acetate and then transfer them to a plate using UV light. They are then developed using ordinary tap water. This all levels workshop and will use Akua soy based inks for easy soap and water clean up. No experience necessary!

Saturday and Sunday, February 23-24, 10am-4pm
$195 plus materials fee
Space is limited to 6 participants

Time: 2/23/19 10:00am - 2/24/19 4:00pm

Gene Parulis: Visions and Explorations

Gene Parulis: Visions and Explorations
Description:

Mar. 2 - Apr. 14: Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Gene Parulis: Visions and Explorations, with an artist’s opening reception Saturday, March 2, 5-7 pm. The exhibit continues through April 14, and an Artist Talk is scheduled for March 23, 5 pm.
Gene Parulis has been absorbed in photographing the world for fifty years, and his passion for photography is central to his teaching and traveling. He has taught in diverse places from a mountain village in Algeria to Kuwait University, California to Vermont and has exhibited in galleries in the USA and Europe. He has worked closely with writers, illustrating themes relating to spirituality, and personal and professional development. Included among his collaborations are The Twelve Steps of Forgiveness and The Wisdom of the Self by Paul Ferrini, Teaching as a Meditative Practice by Lauren Alderfer and most recently The Meditative Gardiner by Cheryl Wilfong, winner of several Small Press awards.
Parulis’ latest work shows his continued fascination with digitally manipulated imagery. Through city or deep wood, local or abroad, Parulis leads us into places of stunning beauty and clarity, but he uses the always exquisite details to serve his restless and relentless quest to heighten or magnify mystery, mood and movement. He repeats, splits apart, stretches, reverses and then reconfigures objects and spaces. But whether subtly shifted or acutely altered, Parulis’ newly crafted worlds are totally credible as places we have - or would like to - visit and explore.
Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works in a variety of media that stimulate both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.

Gene Parulis: Visions and Explorations

Gene Parulis: Visions and Explorations
Description:

Mar. 2 - Apr. 14: Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Gene Parulis: Visions and Explorations, with an artist’s opening reception Saturday, March 2, 5-7 pm. The exhibit continues through April 14, and an Artist Talk is scheduled for March 23, 5 pm.
Gene Parulis has been absorbed in photographing the world for fifty years, and his passion for photography is central to his teaching and traveling. He has taught in diverse places from a mountain village in Algeria to Kuwait University, California to Vermont and has exhibited in galleries in the USA and Europe. He has worked closely with writers, illustrating themes relating to spirituality, and personal and professional development. Included among his collaborations are The Twelve Steps of Forgiveness and The Wisdom of the Self by Paul Ferrini, Teaching as a Meditative Practice by Lauren Alderfer and most recently The Meditative Gardiner by Cheryl Wilfong, winner of several Small Press awards.
Parulis’ latest work shows his continued fascination with digitally manipulated imagery. Through city or deep wood, local or abroad, Parulis leads us into places of stunning beauty and clarity, but he uses the always exquisite details to serve his restless and relentless quest to heighten or magnify mystery, mood and movement. He repeats, splits apart, stretches, reverses and then reconfigures objects and spaces. But whether subtly shifted or acutely altered, Parulis’ newly crafted worlds are totally credible as places we have - or would like to - visit and explore.
Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works in a variety of media that stimulate both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.

Time: 3/2/19 5:00pm - 4/14/19 11:59pm
