Celtic Harp and Song Workshop

Celtic Harp and Song Workshop Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

We'll cover all your favorite aspects of singing with the instrument from arrangements to song choice. Singing with the harp, or accompanying yourself singing is very different from playing solo pieces or from accompanying other musicians or singers.


Naturally it calls for a different approach. This workshop will serve to look at the unique aspects of self accompaniment and keeping it simple.


We'll focus on old beautiful airs from the tradition that are very suitable for meditative music. Interestingly many of them were written on or widely played by the harpers of old.


We'll also touch on combining your personal meditation practice and how to carry that forward into playing for others.


This workshop is also suitable for healing practitioners who play at the bedside.


If there's any more beautiful music in the world than Irish and Celtic airs, I've yet to hear it. We'll dig into the deepest treasures of the tradition by unearthing Ireland and Scotland's most beautiful airs. For me, there's no greater joy than playing airs that were written for the harp, often by harpers and I can't wait to share that with you!


This is the music a harpist can really make his or her own through self-expression and it's the best way I know to find your true harp "voice."

Time: 6/1/18 4:00pm - 6/3/18 1:00pm

Petroglyphs, Flora and Frenzied Encounters: The Hand-Pulled Prints of Betsey Garand

Petroglyphs, Flora and Frenzied Encounters: The Hand-Pulled Prints of Betsey Garand Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Curated by Dian Parker

These recent prints of Betsey Garand represent the continuous balance and growth of physical and psychological life. The colors are layered biomorphic and geometric shapes, combining delicate nuances with accents of vibrancy and transparency. Garand uses a combination of techniques; woodcut, monotype, pochôir, spit-bite aquatint, lift-ground aquatint, and à la poupée. The prints create the luscious varieties of form, color, and change inherent in nature. These works are fluid, amorphic, richly colored, and intensely dynamic.

Betsey Garand is presently Senior Resident Artist at Amherst College in the Department of Art and the History of Art, where she is head of printmaking. Garand has shown in many exhibitions and in numerous public and private art collections; Dadapost Gallery-Berlin, Germany; Santa Barbara Museum of Art; Hammer Museum’s Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts; Arkansas Arts Center; Tokyo Geijutsu Daigaku-Japan; Art Museum of Estonia. Awards include a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and fellowships at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony and the MacDowell Colony.

Time: 4/2/18 10:00am - 6/15/18 4:00pm

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
