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.

I Know What I Saw

I Know What I Saw Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Open Gallery - Stone Valley Arts at Fox Hill, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Sundays

I KNOW WHAT I SAW
The work of Rita Fuchsberg, and Irene Minkoff

Show open: November 1st – December 9th
Opening reception: November 3rd, 4:00-7:00 pm

Rita Fuchsberg

Fuchsberg’s recent work includes highly textural acrylic paintings created with a palette knife. Her past body of work includes portraits from a project called ‘Ladies in Waiting’ 40 portraits of women on death row, which first showed in SoHo, New York. When asked for a brief bio, Rita responded “I’ve been an artist since as long as I can remember. I earned a master’s degree in art therapy from Pratt and worked in that field for several years.”

Irene Minkoff

Irene hails from Bronx, New York and now lives in Manhattan. She loves to spend time in Poultney, Vermont near her sister. She has an advanced degree in social work but having retired she enjoys photography, playing the piano, going to the ballet, volunteering with immigrants struggling to learn English and navigate New York City, as well as spending time with her family.

Of her work for I know what I saw, Irene explains “Television talks at us 24 hours a day. Mine started saying different things to me. Images combined and coalesced fleetingly. I felt compelled to hunt them and watch until they beckoned to me. These few canvases represent the countless hours of staring at broken televisions until those crazy images spoke their own kind of sense.”

“I think most of the work is thought-provoking and I’m very interested in knowing what others see because the potential is there for each person to see something different.”

Gelli® Plate Monoprinting Class

Gelli® Plate Monoprinting Class
Description:

Green Mountain Academy welcomes Jane MacKugler to lead a one-day workshop on Gelli® Plate Monoprinting. The class will take place on Saturday, December 1 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Equinox Village. The Gelli® Plate looks and feels like gelatin, but is durable, reusable and stores at room temperature. It’s easy to clean and always ready for printing, which makes monoprinting on a Gelli® plate simple and fun. The gratification is immediate, and the prints are too cool! We will use different sizes of Gelli® plates with acrylic paints and a variety of stencils, stamps, vegetation, household items, and whatever else we can find to create fun designs on paper and boxes. Bring along an old shirt or apron, any old gift boxes, anything that might make an interesting pattern, and your imagination. The holidays are coming! It’s amazing what you can create. Preregistration is required and costs $50. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.

Time: 12/1/18 1:00pm - 4:00pm
