Intro to Soul Collage®

Intro to Soul Collage®

SoulCollage® is a creative collage process for self-discovery, self-acceptance, and personal empowerment.

Developed by Seena B. Frost, SoulCollage® is an easy, fun, and intuitive collage process for making a personal deck of cards that represents your Soul – one card at a time. SoulCollage® can enrich your self-awareness, illuminate meaningful connections, celebrate the joys in life, and nurture the many aspects of who you are. As your deck grows, it can be used for SoulCollage® Readings that can deepen your self-inquiry and elicit your own inner wisdom about life direction, concerns, or challenges.

During this retreat-style workshop, you will learn about and practice the basic elements of SoulCollage®. The facilitators will provide assistance to create the first card(s) in your deck, guide a process for gaining personal insights from your cards, and offer resources to support an on-going SoulCollage® practice at home. Participants will work independently in a supportive, non-judgemental group atmosphere. There will be small and large group sharing that is encouraged, but not required. Dress comfortably for a day in an art studio engaged in a clean activity. Bring your own lunch. A preferred writing journal is optional. All materials provided including a SoulCollage® kit for 3 cards. Additional supplies available for purchase.

Songwriter's Circle, Art, and Short Sets

Songwriter's Circle, Art, and Short Sets

Pat Daddona will host a songwriter's circle with Kala Farnham and Jan Sheehy on September 19 at 3:00 at Stage 33 Live, 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, Vermont. Artist Felicity Haselton will exhibit. Four 10-minute short slots with local performers Ezra Holloway, Will Stahl, Kyla Rose, and Bill Brink will precede the songwriter's circle.

Pat Daddona's songs aren't afraid to both laugh and cry, finding glimmering shoots of happiness in unexpected places or working out why they don't seem to be there. She's bringing two friends to this performance to make it a songwriters' circle... Kala Farnham is a multi-instrumentalist who draws from a classical and theatrical background to inspire through the power of musical storytelling that embraces the imperfect beauty of the human condition; and Jan Sheehy, half of the regional folk duo The Milkhouse Heaters, is a big-voiced former rocker from the Boston punk scene and one of the most compassionate people around.

Artist Felicity Haselton will be exhibiting her bold and optimistic, celebratory and colorful work starting at 2:00, an hour before the show begins. She'll also be on hand during the break and after the show, and will have work for sale.

A $5+ donation at the door is suggested for Pat, Jan, and Kala.

Stage 33 Live is an industrial-rustic listening room in a former factory hosting local, regional, and national performers in an intimate setting at 33 Bridge Street in Bellows Falls, VT. The performances are recorded and filmed. Seating is limited. No bar or kitchen; snacks by donation. Find more info about the nonprofit, all-volunteer project, and this and other other upcoming events, online at stage33live.com

Open to Landscape: Four Vermont Artists

Open to Landscape: Four Vermont Artists

After a year of closure due to Covid 19, Catamount Arts is pleased to announce the reopening of the Fried Family Gallery in its St. Johnsbury arts center. From July 1-September 26, 2021, Open to Landscape, a four person exhibition of paintings, photographs and works on paper, will be on view featuring works by Keith Chamberlin, Terry Ekasala, Anni Lorenzini and Elizabeth Nelson. The exhibition explores a range of artistic responses to Vermont’s dramatic landscape, from observed to imagined, in ways that touch upon the psychological and spiritual. Photographer Keith Chamberlin connects organic to the abstract; Terry Ekasala creates vibrantly colored dreams; Anni Lorenzini expands upon tonalist painting; and Elizabeth Nelson contemplates natural and geometric form in response to the I Ching Book of Changes. Taken together, the 35 paintings and 9 photographs in the exhibition present numerous opportunities for viewers to contemplate landscape as a way to understand the self-imposed isolation and unprecedented change we’ve all experienced over the past year.

"Still Life, Life Still" Art Exhibition and Opening Reception

"Still Life, Life Still" Art Exhibition and Opening Reception

Still-life painting is defined as the depiction of inanimate objects for the sake of their qualities of form, colour, texture, and composition. I suspect the artists exhibited here will agree, but I also suspect all will agree that the five artists here care little about the definition. These artists bring so much more to the genre – and perhaps it to them.
This exhibit features the art of:
Mary Ellen Bartley
Kate Emlen
Tucker Nichols
Jon Redmond
Margaret Sparrow
Each artist incorporates the elements of the ”still life” – form, colour, texture, and composition – in their work. With their well honed craft they pay homage to everyday objects. They notice and pay attention. They interpret. And then they share.

Outdoor opening reception is Sunday, September 12, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM. This is a free event, no reservations required.

Masking is required inside the Gallery.

Vaune Trachtman’s NOW IS ALWAYS is the Inaugural exhibit for the Grand re-opening of Vermont Center of Photography

Vaune Trachtman’s NOW IS ALWAYS is the Inaugural exhibit for the Grand re-opening of Vermont Center of Photography

Vaune Trachtman’s NOW IS ALWAYS is the Inaugural exhibit for the Grand
Re-opening of Vermont Center of Photography. September 3 – Oct 31, 2021
22 High Street #205 (enter on Green street)
Brattleboro Vermont

Opening reception: Sept 3, 5-8pm (in person)
Artist Talk: Sept 15, 2021 5:30 (in person)

Statement:
Now is Always was begun during the Great Depression when Vaune Trachtman’s father, Joseph Harold Trachtman (1914-1971), shot a few rolls of film near his father’s drugstore in Center City, Philadelphia. Nearly 90 years later, her sister found the negatives and gave them to Trachtman. Working from her father’s original negatives, she combined the people from his neighborhood with her own images, many of which were shot from windows and moving vehicles. Now is Always is their collaboration across time.

There is a personal aspect to Now is Always, but Trachtman wants the work to be more expansive than a dialogue between the father she didn’t know and the daughter he knew only as a child. In Now is Always, Trachtman wants to create a feeling of collapsed-yet-expanded time.

Bio:
Vaune Trachtman is a photographer and printmaker whose work honors the methods and tones of historic processes, but without the toxic chemicals. Formerly a master printer of silver gelatin prints and asphaltum-based photogravures, she began to feel that her immune-system was being compromised by those processes. She now makes gravures with little more than light and water. Her images explore the evanescence of dreams and memory— a “fleeting, wondrous, sacred habitation” (Collier Brown, Od Review).

Vaune was born in Philadelphia and attended the Tyler School of Art and Marlboro College. She received her M.A. from New York University and The International Center for Photography. She worked in the imaging department of TIME Inc. for many years. She lives in Brattleboro, Vermont.

Now is Always is presented by the Vermont Center of Photography and has additional support from the Vermont Arts Council, NEA and the Tusen Takk Foundation. This series was started while in residency at the Vermont Studio Center.

Erika Somogyi: Luminous Bloom

Erika Somogyi: Luminous Bloom

A solo exhibition of atmospheric watercolors that blend figuration and abstraction to convey the peaceful enjoyment and contemplation of the natural world and the different sensorial qualities of energy such as sound, the flowing and crashing of water, air and heat.
Exhibition Opening 5pm Friday, August 6th. Open during events and by Appointment.

Erika Somogyi's compositions include portions of the female figure set within interlacing patterns. Young women appear in various actions in nature--reading in a garden, bird watching, listening to the sound of an emptied conch, and peering through the openings in a latticework fence. Dragonflies, butterflies, and species of flowers (poppies, daffodils, roses, and forsythia) are inspired by photographs Somogyi takes in Brooklyn of her flower garden, her childrens' excitement of viewing insects through a magnifying glass, and the unexpected appearance of wildlife in New York during the pandemic. Other elements capture memories of family camping trips at the seaside, lighting candles by a fire, playing cards, or cooling off with a handmade paper fan. Rectangular playing cards spiral like the roundness of a shell, and cascade like waterfalls. The peaceful enjoyment of the natural world, contemplation, spirituality, and calm, lend a feel of relaxation to each scene.

Somogyi uses a layered approach to creating her compositions. Starting with an under drawing, she chooses a particular set of colors to wash over the surface of the paper that she then joins with abstract patterns comprised of repeated lines and waves. From this imagery, Somogyi defines the figurative aspects of her work with paint--flowers, cards, hands, and the faces of her subjects. At times her linear patterns bend into the outline of a woman's face in profile, reverberating in space. Other times her repeated waves suggest a gaze into an endless sea, the sensorial qualities of flowing and crashing water, and different forms of energy such as air, sound, and heat.

Artist Bio:
Erika Somogyi lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She was born in New City, New York in 1977 and received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 1999. Her solo and two-artist exhibitions include 'Erika Somogyi: Reawakening,' Kristen Lorello, New York, NY, 'Violet Dawn Love Song,' Monya Rowe, New York, NY, 'Alix Smith / Erika Somogyi,' Annarumma Gallery, Naples, Italy, and 'Nature's Rituals and Mistaken Identities,' Rocket Projects, Miami, Florida. Her works have been exhibited in group exhibitions at Essex Flowers, New York, NY, ARENA, Brooklyn, NY, Griffith Moon, Santa Monica, CA, Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco, CA, and La Montagne Gallery, Boston, MA, among other venues.

Classic Figure Drawing With Douglas David

Classic Figure Drawing With Douglas David

INSTRUCTOR: DOUGLAS DAVID
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 20
10 A.M. – 4 P.M.
SVAC Member: $165; SVAC Non-member: $200 (includes $25 model fee)

Class will cover the fundamentals of drawing the figure from a nude model. The day will start out with several short poses to loosen you up and to help you get the motion of the model’s pose. Douglas will discuss gesture, balance, lines and shading to depict mass and volume. The poses will get longer throughout the morning. In the afternoon, we will host a new model and repeat the process.

Students may register for this day only or combine it as a precursor to Douglas’s two-day workshop, Painting the Figure in Oil, which follows on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

Class supply list:
Large newsprint pad and vine charcoal. Compressed charcoal, conte etc. are optional.

Douglas David has painted his way across the country, capturing the beauty and spirit of the things he loves – tranquil country landscapes, sunrises and sunsets on his favorite beaches, a simple pitcher of spring lilacs or peonies, a lemon, lime or a slice of watermelon on a checked tablecloth. Paintings that reflect comfort, warmth meaning and simplicity: similar to everything important to him – his close knit family, life-long friendships, creatively fulfilling work and giving his best. A recipient of numerous regional and national awards and honors, Douglas’s teaching is a way of giving back and sharing some of his journey with those who choose to study with him.

The Shelter Cultivation Project was started by local artist Shawn Dumont at the start of the COVID pandemic as a way to connect artists during an isolating time, with the overall goal of strengthening the broader arts community in Vermont. The response from artists was so strong that the project quickly expanded its reach throughout the northeast and even internationally.

8/5/21 6:00pm - 11/1/21 3:00pm
