Changing Seasons Opening Reception

Changing Seasons Opening  Reception

Changing Seasons, Vermont landscape paintings by Thomas Waters ,is featured at the Emile A Gruppe Gallery from October 12 through November 12. Waters wants to take you to a landscape that you can see and feel, to a place you have been or imagined. After years in technology management his inner voice is emerging as he works to capture in oils or acrylics on canvas, those feelings that “ allow the viewer to momentarily forget everyday stress and escape to another place”. Waters states “my technique is rooted in a love of impressionism and its exploration of color and light, with a strong leaning towards realism.” His inspiration is the outdoor world.

Seasons - Threadpainting by Pam Druhen

Seasons - Threadpainting by Pam Druhen

Waitsfield United Church Village Meeting House is hosting an Artist Talk and Opening Reception for “Seasons-Threadpainting by Pamela Druhen” on Saturday, September 30 at 3:30 pm. Pamela Druhen is an international award winning fiber artist, working primarily in fabric and thread, as well as teacher, lecturer and curator. She will speak about the inspiration for her artwork as well as the intricate techniques used to create each original design.

“Though much of my work is representational, I enjoy working in abstract as well,” said Druhen, “I’ve begun experimenting with wire as fiber, knitting or crocheting fine gauge wire and including it in different ways.” Most of the pieces on exhibit were done between 2014 and the present including some which have been created specifically for this exhibit.

Pam draws inspiration from the beauty of Vermont and how life here is defined by the seasons. When the seasons change, everything changes with it - the smells, colors, what we wear, how we live, the food we eat. Pam’s representational work is inspired by her experiences of the seasons while traveling with her husband around Vermont, New England and beyond. Her abstract work embraces the wider seasons of life – young, old, in-between, sickness, death, change, new life, joy, love, progress and confusion. These seasons are personal and limitless. “I think my abstract work is an attempt to embrace these wider seasons of life, those that aren’t defined by weather or temperature or the limits of landscape,” said Druhen.

The Waitsfield United Church Village Meeting House has been exhibiting artwork during the Vermont Festival of the Arts for five years. “Because of our recent construction, we had to delay the opening of this show until after the Festival,” said Karen Nevin, chair of the Village Meeting House Arts Committee. “We are incredibly excited to be able to show Pam’s work this fall and open our doors to the community through this exhibit.”

The exhibit will run Fridays through Sundays, September 29-October 15 from noon – 5 pm. Pam will speak about her work on Saturday, September 30 at 3:30 pm followed by the Opening Reception. Admission is free. The Waitsfield United Church Village Meeting House is located at 4355 Main Street, Route 100, Waitsfield.

The Strong and the Weak, Patrick Shoemaker Solo Exhibit

The Strong and the Weak, Patrick Shoemaker Solo Exhibit

Northern Daughters is excited to present The Strong and the Weak, a solo exhibit of paintings from Patrick Shoemaker. The exhibition is on view at the gallery’s 221 Main St. location in Vergennes, Vermont from September 1st through October 15th with an opening reception on September 8th from 5-8pm.

Patrick Shoemaker’s paintings are inspired by mythology and lore, rooted in American history, and folk art. While relying on contemporary vernacular, his paint handling and use of color is unmistakably his own. Using large amounts of medium mixed with oil pigment, this technique allows him to mix colors and blur lines directly on the surface, imitating a watercolor like texture. The paintings are at once iconographic and implicit, intimate and unknown.

Fantastic Wantastiquet Festival

Fantastic Wantastiquet Festival

Fantastic Wantastiquet is a new 'umbrella' festival covering Windham County and the immediate tri-state area, including Cheshire County NH and Franklin County MA. Most activities are concentrated in and around the Brattleboro area, but we explicitly embrace and publicize all arts and cultural activities in the larger area, particularly in the West River (Wantastiquet) valley watershed. The name 'Fantastic Wantastiquet' re-claims the original Abenaki name for the West River -- Wantastiquet -- and the larger Festival embraces traditional arts and cultural forms. In this inaugural year, the Festival is taking on special significance because Brattleboro has decided to embrace the Indigenous Peoples Day initiative in place of the National Columbus Day holiday weekend.

A Doll's House

A Doll's House

Henrik Ibsen, the father of modern drama, argued that everyone, man or woman, had a right to be who they wanted to be. In A Doll’s House, protagonist Nora epitomizes struggles against the constraints of social conformity as she confronts her identity and the state of her marriage. Though Ibsen was writing in the 19th century, his masterpiece remains just as relevant as when it was written. As Mark Lawson writes, “Our culture is in moral chaos, with inquiries, trials, and debates agonizing over what we should think about politics, money, journalism, medicine, and sex, themes to which Ibsen…urgently returned.” – The Guardian

Robert Frost: This Verse Business

For nearly fifty years, Robert Frost “barded” around the country with his poetry, dry wit, and “promises to keep,” performing some of the greatest verse in the English canon and sharing his “wild surmises” on religion, science, poetic form, whatever was on his mind. Starring Emmy winning and Tony nominated actor Gordon Clapp, A.M. Dolan's This Verse Business not only gives us Frost, the rascally wit of the platform, but also a personal view of Frost at his cabin.

Portrait of a Vermont Landscape: Paintings by Norma Jean Rollet

Portrait of a Vermont Landscape: Paintings by Norma Jean Rollet

The Brandon Artists Guild (the BAG) celebrates Vermont's colorful scenery with a new exhibit of paintings and pastels by Middlebury artist Norma Jean Rollet. The show, "Portraits of the Vermont Landscape" runs September 1 through October 31. Opening reception is Friday, September 8, 5-7pm at the BAG, 7 Center Street, Brandon.

Rollet, who attended the New England School of Art and Design in Boston, moved to Vermont in 1983, and became captivated by the diversity of the landscape. As she describes it, "From mountains to meadows to farm fields and woodlands, the characteristics of the Vermont landscape are no different than the individual features of its citizens. The beauty of the countryside forming its profile and features is the essence of what I hope to portray in my work.”

Working in oils and pastels, Rollet paints in plein air when the weather allows. "The long winter months of Vermont drive me indoors," she concedes, "but on location color studies, notes and photographs allow me to complete pieces more comfortably in my studio."

The recipient of several awards for her work, Rollet is a member of the Vermont Pastel Society, Pastel Society of America, Degas Pastel Society, and International Association of Pastel Societies.

The BAG welcomes the public to the opening reception for Norma Jean Rollet's show, "Portraits of the Vermont Landscape” on Friday, September 8 from 5 to 7 pm. The gallery, at 7 Center Street in Brandon, is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10AM to 5PM, Sundays from 10AM to 4PM. Information: 802 247-4956. www.BrandonArtistsGuild.org.

The Brandon Artists Guild is a cooperative with approximately 50 artist-members. A 501(c)3 nonprofit cultural organization, the BAG supports the visual arts through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and educational programs, particularly in local schools and after-school programs.

Hope and Hazard: A Comedy of Eros | Curated by Eric Fischl

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce a group exhibition curated by American artist Eric Fischl to be held in its galleries in Reading, Vermont from 6 May – 26 November 2017. Approximately sixty-five artists are represented in "Hope and Hazard: A Comedy of Eros", which includes over eighty paintings, photographs, works on paper and sculptures selected by Fischl from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. In this fresh and provocative show, Fischl illustrates the absurd extremes associated with romantic and sexual love. Desire, passion, vulnerability, disappointment, pleasure and torment are expressed as a Greek or Shakespearian comedy – epic and tragic, hopeful and hazardous. (Pictured: Nicole Eisenman's "Little Shaver" 2005). The Hall Art Foundation is open weekends and Wednesdays by appointment. Appointments are available at 11 AM, 1 PM and 3 PM.

Their paintings, illustrations, and photographs, as well as books that feature their artworks will be scattered throughout the museum to be enjoyed by visiting children and adults.

Solo Exhibition-
Roots: Paintings by TJ Cunningham

EDGEWATER GALLERY in Stowe
151 Main Street • Stowe, Vermont • 802.760.6785 Contact: Kelly Holt ​kelly@edgewatergallery-vt.com
On view: December 1, 2018 - January 11, 2018

Edgewater Gallery in Stowe announces a welcoming home, solo exhibition by TJ Cunningham aptly titled, ​Roots. T​he exhibition will be on view from December 1st through January 11th, with an opening reception on Friday, December 7 from 5-7pm. There will be an artist talk at 6pm. Cunningham inspires with his thought provoking landscapes of his native home, Addison, Vermont. Cunningham recently reflected on his upbringing in Vermont, and the powerful feelings of place as it relates to his art "One of my earliest, childhood memories is of an evening walk in November as woodsmoke wafted from the chimneys of my boyhood town. I remember the sharp feeling of cold air in my nostrils accompanied by the gentle smell of Vermont’s long heating season...The scent of woodsmoke always conjures those feelings of contented peace...More and more when I paint the landscape, I am searching for a similar experience; however, unlike smell, painting is an abstract language with a series of shapes, colors, and textures that together bring meaning... These are the places that mean the most to me; they are the scenes that evoke all of the joy and longing connected to my thoughts of home. They are my roots."

Known for his depth and layering of oil colors, majestic Vermont skyscapes, stretching farmlands, and meandering river waters, Cunningham once again delivers the scenes we recognize as the quietude of true homeland in this exhibition.

Cunningham received his formal training at Pensacola Christian College. He enjoys connecting with living artists in his travels, whose techniques he studies and whose work Cunningham follows and admires. The artist works directly in the landscape and from plein air studies in his studio in Tennessee. He teaches plein air painting workshops in several locations across the United States. Cunningham’s work is exhibited and collected nationwide, as well as in Europe.
