Sheltering In Place Art Exhibit

Sheltering In Place Art Exhibit

A reflection by Vermont artists and writers’ on time spent during Covid-19

Created by artist Hasso Ewing
Contributed to by over 100 Vermont artists and writers
Proceeds from sales of art benefit the Vermont Foodbank

Early this past winter the Fair Housing Project and the T. W. Wood Gallery & Arts Center collaborated to create a spring exhibition commemorating fair housing. Hasso Ewing submitted a piece for consideration, was accepted, and then traveled to Morocco. Covid-19 abruptly shortened her trip, she returned home to a shut-down and new, shared, unpredictable horizons. Reflecting upon this “new world” and the art she had submitted – of multiple plaster houses, nested in branches, representing fair housing and shelter – to the now cancelled TW Wood show, Ewing realized that this was no longer her OWN project. Rather, she thought, since all Vermonters were sharing a new experience, her project should reflect that experience.

So Ewing invited Vermont visual artists and writers to create a reflection of their time spent Sheltering in Place to stand as a memorial to what was lost, and gained, from sheltering in place during the time of Covid-19.

The visual art submissions had to be no larger than 6 x 6 x 9 inches, weigh no more than 8 ounces, and be made from materials found in and around ones shelter. Ewing collaborated with poet Geof Hewitt, who invited Vermont writers to create a haiku.

Over 100 artists and writers responded with originality, insight and enthusiasm that must be witnessed and celebrated.

Milking Butterflies Art Exhibit

Milking Butterflies Art Exhibit

Cathy Cone is a photographer and painter. Cathy and her husband, master printer Jon Cone, founded Cone Editions Press in 1980 in Port Chester, NY as a collaborative printmaking workshop. Cone Editions is now located in East Topsham, Vermont where Cathy is director of the Workshops and Studio.
Cathy received her training at Ohio University, Vermont Studio Center and the Maine Media Photographic Workshops. She received her MFA at the Maine Media College. She was awarded the Vermont Art Fellowships. Some of her exhibitions include Weisman Art Museum, University of Alabama, DeCordova Museum, and the The Vermont Center for Photography. Her works are in the collection of IBM, MCI, Hallmark Fine Art Collections, American Express and the Beekman, A Thompson Hotel, New York.

Artist Statement -
I begin by finding an image in the world. The image emerges as a rather strange, unexpected surprise. This is the evidence that I take back into my studio as “something” found. It is not unlike collecting specimens. I photograph so I can see what something looks like. I take a slice of life, through my camera lens, in attempt to see what I missed. I then go to work by responding more directly to this “something” – to rediscover through a new conscious intention. I want to connect and have my hand more in it. The finding and constructing of what I understand, and know, links up with what I don’t know, or can’t see. If I’m lucky, they meld into a new image that lives on the threshold.
"I make photographs as a way to listen to my heart’s song, and then I practice like hell to sing it."

"Papercut Polaroids" | Papercuts by Rosa Leff

"Papercut Polaroids" | Papercuts by Rosa Leff

Baltimore-based artist Rosa Leff embraced her time in quarantine as an opportunity to slow down, refocus, and commit full time to her art-making process. Celebrating the mundane, Rosa memorializes the messier details of urban life in her original papercuts - tangled nests of telephone wires and power lines, blocks of storefronts crowded with competing signage, and broadsides of rusted delivery trucks emblazoned with local graffiti tags.

“we are pissed, we are broken hearted and we remain engaged”

“we are pissed, we are broken hearted and we remain engaged”

On August 7th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in conjunction with the Montpelier ArtWalk, and on August 8th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. during Capital City Farmers’ Market hours, The Susan Calza Gallery will be hosting an outdoor opening reception of the exhibition “we are pissed, we are broken hearted and we remain engaged,” curated by Susan Calza. The exhibition features the work of three artists whose ages span from 16 to 60’s: Susan Calza (sculpture), Izzy Giammusso (mixed media on paper), Bailey Rinaldi (etchings) and Rob Rinaldi (mixed media works on paper). This collection of multi-media work is a direct response to the current social and political climate amidst the turbulence of global pandemic. The collection reacts to thoughts of holding up a mirror and speaking truth to power.

Also on view at the outdoor gallery site will be a fundraiser for the Vermont Food Bank. A collection of postcards addressing the same themes - reflections on social or personal issues related to Covid-19 and these wild and turbulent times. In an effort to give back to the community in this time of need, donations for the postcards are encouraged, and all monies from the sales of cards will go directly to the Vermont Food Bank. The postcard collections are a combination of original works, and printed photographic work by a large group of local artists and some further afield. Receptions take place on the lawn of The Susan Calza Gallery at 138 Main Street, which offers opportunity to view the work and continue the conversation, while remaining safely social distanced.
