Sorry, but Hello Opening Reception

Sorry, but Hello Opening Reception Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The opening reception for Sorry, but Hello will be held on Friday, Dec. 14 from 6-8 p.m. at the Castleton University Bank Gallery, located at 104 Merchants Row in Rutland.

The exhibition, created by Rutland-based painter and ceramic artist Reid Brechner, cautiously re-examines a formative body of work under the lens of place, in tandem with an exploration of newness and what it means to belong. The work, along with selected writing, represents the impossibility of disconnecting emotional affect from even the coolest, most minimal, concrete form of art creation.

Sorry, but Hello will be on display at the Castleton University Bank Gallery in Downtown Rutland from Dec. 14 through Jan. 16

Time: 12/14/18 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Castleton University Bank Gallery, Rutland

Cellblock Visions: Prison Art in America

Cellblock Visions: Prison Art in America Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Christine Price Gallery in the Fine Arts Center at Castleton University will have on display "Cellblock Visions: Prison Art in America" from November 9 through December 21. An opening reception will be held Friday, November 9 from 5-6 p.m. The Christine Price Gallery is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

The art show is not simply an expression of the personal thoughts and emotions of the incarcerated artist, but transcends these in the kind of creative engagement that changes a person’s thinking. This work proves that the unlimited human capacity to create beauty and goodness exists in all of us, no less in an incarcerated person, and can be elicited just as violence can.

About the Artist:
Phyllis Kornfeld, author and lecturer of "Cellblock Visions: Prison Art in America" and a contributor to Art Education Beyond the Classroom, has been working directly with incarcerated men and women for 35 years —in all levels of security from county jail to maximum security to death row, and around the country —providing the transformative experience of creating sincere and beautiful art.

The work, along with selected writing, represents the impossibility of disconnecting emotional affect from even the coolest, most minimal, concrete form of art creation.

“Although these works are often presented in conglomerate, I created each piece with individual intention, individual character, and I believe that they stand just as easily alone as they do together. As a result, each installation of the work is performative in nature. There is no set order or arrangement for the pieces to take. Hence, some or all of the creative activity occurs within the process of installation,” Brechner said.
