New Exhibit Opens at MGFA: Bruce Campbell, Thinking the Cosmos

New Exhibit Opens at MGFA: Bruce Campbell, Thinking the Cosmos Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

May 12- June 24: Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to feature sculptor Bruce Campbell’s “Thinking the Cosmos: Kinetic Sculpture”. An opening reception will take place Saturday, May 12 from 5:30-8pm, with an Artist Talk scheduled for Saturday, June 9th at 5:30pm.

Bruce Campbell graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA in printmaking and received an MFA from Indiana University. In the early ‘70s Campbell began designing books and manuscripts, and soon he was specializing in the design of art museum books and catalogues. For thirty years his clients included The Metropolitan Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art, The Peabody Museum, and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among others.

In 1976 Campbell was fascinated by the Whitney Museum retrospective exhibition, “Calder’s Universe”, which invited Campbell to experiment with wires joined and twisted into imaginative shapes, suggesting an art form which defines and controls space through three-dimensional line drawing.

“My ideas for kinetic sculpture usually begin as a question. For example, how can I show a certain concept of the universe? They attempt to illustrate, in the simplest way possible, conditions and events of the natural world. In showing a falling star, a lunar eclipse, or a rainstorm, I am trying to represent, in minimalist and transparent form, my perception of the universe - how the universe might be visualized if moved by gears, levers, and basic mechanics.” Visually stunning and interactively entertaining, Campbell’s kinetic sculptures illuminate/illustrate the dynamic relationships of phonomenal elements in the natural and celestial world, bridging physics, mechanics and aesthetics to create treasured pieces of pure wonderment.

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.

Time: 5/12/18 5:00pm - 6/24/18 5:00pm

Rachel Moore - Traces
On view: May 6 through June 29, 2018

EDGEWATER GALLERY at Stowe
151 Main Street • Stowe, Vermont • 802.760.6785

Edgewater Gallery at Stowe unveils a special selection from Rachel Moore’s complete body of work with brand new sculptural pieces in her solo exhibition Traces . The exhibition will be on view May 6th through June 29th, with a reception on Friday, May 11th from 5:30-7:00pm. The artist talk will begin at 6:00pm.

Moore’s work is steeped in careful attention to pattern language and shifts. Her materials range from watercolor and graphite on paper, to blown and cast glass, to ink on vellum and more. Traces ties together many thematic patterns in the artist’s work honoring the environment with a dialogue on prevailing conditions. Minimalist in color, her installations are infinitely rich in carefully considered materials and surfaces with an ethereal elegance and sophistication. Paying homage to presence in absence, many of her sculptural pieces refer to measurable data in climate change as well as migration patterns. Each movement, memory, presence and energy leaves a trace. This exhibition echoes traces of beauty in our global community.

Rachel Moore is a multidisciplinary artist working in mixed media sculpture, installation, drawing, and social practice. Moore uses maps, cultural and religious icons, text, and sculptural replications of objects from daily life to respond to social and political movements, often in poetic and haunting ways. In her social practice, she has used storytelling to create relationships of understanding and as a way to bring awareness to multicultural histories, in some cases, asserting a culture’s rightful place in history.

Moore’s work has been featured in international museums and galleries, on Art21’s “Inside the Artist’s Studio” and she is the recipient of numerous grants and awards.The artist is represented by Edgewater Gallery, Stowe, VT; Stewart Gallery, Boise, ID; and Traver Gallery, Seattle, WA. She lives and works in Vermont.

For further information on Rachel Moore and her exhibition, please call the gallery at 802-760-6785, email Kelly Holt (kelly@edgewatergallery-vt.com), or visit edgewatergallery-vt.com.
