I Know What I Saw - opening reception

I Know What I Saw - opening reception Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

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
Free and open to the public. Everyone welcome!




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

Minkoff 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.”

Reinventing the View: Paintings by Ashley Wolff at the Brandon Artists Guild

Reinventing the View: Paintings by Ashley Wolff at the Brandon Artists Guild Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

The Brandon Artists Guild (the BAG) announces a show of new paintings by Leicester artist Ashley Wolff. The exhibit, “Reinventing the View” runs August 31 through November 5. The public is invited to meet the artist at the opening reception Friday, August 31 from 5 to 7PM.

Ashley has built a devoted following with her colorful watercolors, gouache paintings and children’s book illustrations. The vibrant, celebratory pieces she has selected for “Reinventing the View” stem from a more personal source.

“I chose the title, ‘Reinventing the View’ to mark being back in my home state, but without either parent,” Ashley explains, “After 34 years in California I returned to live close to my mother. The lush bouquets of flowers painted in gouache are an outpouring of emotion following Mom’s death in May. She loved saturated color and anything purple.”

The other half of the show includes transparent watercolors. “It’s a medium I first learned and practiced with my father, who died 30 years ago,” says Ashley. “So it appears, without conscious planning, that I’m honoring both parents with work they would have loved if they could be here.”

“Reinventing the Landscape” is part of Vermont Arts 2018 – a year-long celebration highlighting arts events across the state, sponsored by the Vermont Arts Council.
