RAMParts Presents March Offering at Opera House, Online Ticket Special

RAMParts Presents March Offering at Opera House, Online Ticket Special

RAMParts Presents, in partnership with National Theatre Live, Bolshoi Ballet and Exhibition on Screen will bring art, theatre and dance to the big screen from January through June in 2018. Travel the world in the comfort of the Bellows Falls Opera House, downtown Bellows Falls, Vermont where adventurous shopping and dining completes a visit to the beautifully restored 550-seat theatre.

Due to the upcoming production needs of Main Street Arts’ production of Jesus Christ Superstar, there will only be one RAMParts event at the Bellows Falls Opera House in March. On Sunday, March 11, don’t miss Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Young Pope, Sherlock Holmes, Sleuth) in the stage production of Obsession, filmed live in London’s Barbicon Theatre.

Law plays Gino, a drifter who is down on his luck and magnetically handsome. At a roadside restaurant he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart.

Law stars as Pope Pius XIII in the HBO series, The Young Pope, now going into its second season. He will star in Captain Marvel, set to be released in 2019.

Robert McBride, Director of the Rockingham Arts & Museum Project, is expanding arts programming locally by making Bellows Falls an “affordable cultural destination, removing the cost barrier to create unique, spectacular art, dance and theatre offerings.”

Tickets are $20 per person and available at the door, cash/credit. Special online ticket purchase deal; buy one ticket online, get another at no cost. Doors open at 12:30; film 1:00-3:00pm. Seating general admission. Contact Susan MacNeil at 603-313-0052 or email susan@svidol.com for more information.

Beethoven, Friends and Admirers – Diane Huling and Arthur Zorn

Beethoven, Friends and Admirers – Diane Huling and Arthur Zorn

The Friends of the Plainfield Opera House present a performance of piano and vocal music by concert pianist Diane Huling and Baritone Arthur Zorn, Sunday, March 11, 2018 at 4:00 PM.   Titled "Beethoven, Friends and Admirers," it includes the Beethoven Song Cycle "Eine Ferne Geliebte”, and the Beethoven Waldstein Sonata, Opus 53, along with songs by Schubert and Schumann.
"The friends in the title refer to the musicians," Huling explains.  "Arthur and I have known each other for forty years, and we're finally getting around to performing serious art song together. As for the solo Beethoven sonata, I've played it many times in the last 4 decades; it is one of my most favorite of all the sonatas - that is, if one can actually choose a favorite."
Huling, a long-time Cabot resident, has performed as a soloist and chamber musician world-wide.  She has a studio in Cabot.  Zorn, who wears many hats, has taught school in Barre, is an award-winning artist, a conductor and a pianist as well as a singer.
"People don't realize that Beethoven composed over ninety songs, and inspired the art-song movement.  There's a direct connection between his songs and the Schubert and Schumann songs," explains Zorn. "This particular cycle of songs is sung as a continuous piece - there are seven short songs based on poems that were presented to Beethoven by a young doctor.  They're beautiful love poems." Zorn will also be singing the blockbuster "Erlking" by Schubert, a song that has several different people singing.  It involves singing with different characteristics for each person, a technical and dramatic feat.

The concert is Sunday, March 11 at 4:00pm.
Tickets are available through tickets.Catamountarts.org (CatamounTix) or at the door.
General Admission: $15, Seniors $10, Students $5, Special Rate $5
Upcoming concerts in the series are:
April 22 – The Many Faces of Mozart – Historical Mozart era Fortepiano (Sylvia Berry) with readings of Mozart’s letters (M.T. Anderson)
May 13 – Gamelan Sulukala – Plainfield’s Own Gamelan Orchestra – American and Indonesian music

What Did the Rock Say?

What Did the Rock Say?

What Did the Rock Say? Part 1 is an exhibition of a two-year collaboration of artists Dianne Shullenberger and John Snell, currently being shown at the Emile A. Gruppe Gallery in Jericho.
Shullenberger works in colored pencil and fabric. Snell is a photographer.

Originally the mission of their project was to expose young artists to hiking to several rock outcrops and help inspire them to interpret the environment in their respective mediums: photography, writing and drawing. Thirteen middle school students participated in an organized hike to Libby’s Look in West Bolton. These students returned to their own communities to explore other rock sites. The hike was documented by Snell and will be on display as part of the exhibition.

Dianne and John, both avid hikers, continue to explore rock sites in Vermont. They have a similar way of interpreting what they see, concentrating on the intricate details of nature. This exhibition is an expression of their passion for rocks and being outside in Vermont.

There will be an artist reception on Sunday, March 4 from 2 pm – 4 pm. The show is on exhibit February 22 through March 18. At the reception writer, Zoe Fowler and poet, Mary Jane Dickerson will be reading from their works related to rocks. Cello music will be played by Maya Parry, a hike participant.

Disgraced

Disgraced

Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is a white artist whose work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging. Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize. “In dialogue that bristles with wit and intelligence, Mr. Akhtar…puts contemporary attitudes toward religion under a microscope, revealing how tenuous self-image can be for people born into one way of being who have embraced another…” – The New York Times

Seasonal Expressions: Prilla Smith Brackett, Elizabeth Nelson, and Jane Sherrill

Seasonal Expressions: Prilla Smith Brackett, Elizabeth Nelson, and Jane Sherrill

Catamount Arts is pleased to present Seasonal Expression: Prilla Smith Brackett, Elizabeth Nelson, and Jane Sherrill, on view in Main Gallery from February 24-April 14, 2018.

On Saturday, March 10 from 5-7 pm, the St. Johnsbury Business and Professional Women’s Association will host a special reception for the artists in celebration of March as National Women’s Month. All are welcome to attend.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: Working from such seemingly diverse settings as the hills and valleys of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, the windswept coast of Iceland, and artist studios tree near urban Boston, these artists create work as a personal response to nature. Prilla Smith Brackett’s monochromatic drawings of rooted plant life are studies of growth and decay, yet also convey a sense of danger by inviting the viewer to consider darkly seductive imagery. Jane Sherrill seeks to bear witness to the lichen and moss covering trees around New England that “seem to glow when wet;” and Elizabeth Nelson places herself in the middle of the rain and wind she experienced during a month long artist’s residency in Reykjavik Iceland. Seen together, these gestural and expressive paintings reveal personal interpretations of landscape that reflect human experience.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Prilla Smith Brackett has exhibited in one-person exhibitions and group shows both nationally and abroad. Honors include a finalist award in painting from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, artist residencies at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts; the Ragdale Foundation; the Ucross Foundation; and a fellowship in painting at the Bunting Institute of Radcliffe College. Born in New Orleans, Brackett graduated from Sarah Lawrence College and the University of California/Berkeley before earning an MFA in drawing & painting from the University of Nebraska/Lincoln. Smith Brackett added printmaking to her practice in 2003, and lives in Boston and works from her studio in Cambridge, MA. For more information, please see http://prillasmithbrackett.com.

Elizabeth Nelson graduated with a BS from Rhode Island School of Design and Master of Arts in Teaching from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. A former dairy farmer, she has lived on her farm in the Northeast Kingdom for more than 40 years, where she has painted and also been active as a gallerist and curator. She has exhibited widely, most recently at the Burlington Center for the Arts (BCA), Highland Center for the Arts in Greensboro, and River Arts in Morrisville. In 2015 she exhibited work at Shelburne Farms that she completed at Elmore State Park in 2015 as part of Vermont’s Of Land and Local Artist-in-Residency Program. She has also enjoyed artist residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and Reykjavik Iceland. Nelson lives and works in West Glover, VT.

Dianne Shullenberger "After the Frost: Moments in Nature"

Dianne Shullenberger "After the Frost: Moments in Nature"

After the Frost: Moments in Nature, an exhibit of mixed media and fabric collage by Artist Dianne Shullenberger, will exhibit at the Gallery at River Arts March 1-April 29, 2018 at the River Arts Center in Morrisville. The exhibit combines Shullenberger’s natural object collage series, Circular Earth, and fabric collage series, After the Frost, both of which derive inspiration from her devoted attention to nature, and love of playing in the outdoors.

The Circular Earth series incorporates natural objects from Shullenberger’s collection, gathered from her travels and local habitats. In this series, seeds, twigs and other forms are cut into new shapes, exposing the insides, and undersides, to reveal that all stages in a plant’s life are artistic, not just the most recognizable ones: when they are in bloom. After the Frost, Shullenberger’s fabric collage series, highlights the after-blooming stage. This body of work stimulates the viewer’s appreciation of the unheralded stage, and are constructed by using very small pieces of fabric to form shapes, which are machine stitched into place. The process continues, layering and stitching into an extensive selection of fabrics and thread.

Shullenberger grew up in a household where clothes, curtains, and quilts were made rather than purchased. Her mother was a fashion designer and seamstress so there were always fabrics available for her art projects. Her journey as an artist started with Sumii watercolor classes at the Evanston Art Center, then gravitated to fiber after taking a trapunto quilting class. She continued to experimentation with textiles, and quickly evolved to her current technique of layered fabric collage.

The Gallery at River Arts is located on 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Sunday - Friday, 9a.m.-4p.m.. For off hours please call ahead. Admission is free. River Arts is physically accessible for participants who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids, and those who prefer not to use stairs. We invite you to contact us with specific accommodations you need to facilitate your experience at the galleries. Questions regarding accessibility may be addressed to Heidi at (802) 888-1261 or Heidi@RiverArtsVT.org. For more information call (802) 888-1261 or visit their website at www.riverartsvt.org.

Marcia Hill "The Spirited Landscape"

Marcia Hill "The Spirited Landscape"

The Spirited Landscape, an exhibition of work by Marcia Hill, will be on exhibit in The Common Space Gallery at River Arts March 1 - April 29, 2018.

After taking a Community College drawing class in her sixties, Hill fell in love with pastels, admiring their intense colors, the ease with which she could layer, blend, and apply directly with her hands, and an immediacy that she had not found in other mediums.

Although Hill gravitates toward representational art, she is not interested in accurate depiction, rather, painting the landscape “that lies beneath what is visible to the eye”. To Hill, trees, pastures and clouds are sacred, which she expresses by exaggerating the movement in a scene, or intensifying and distorting color. Hill says “I believe that these changes to ‘reality” better reveal the truth underneath. Thus, I am more interested in majesty, and mystery and energy – in spirit – than I am in beauty per se.”

Join River Arts in celebrating Marcia Hill’s work on Thursday, March 1, from 5-7pm for the Opening Reception and Artist Talk. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.


The Gallery at River Arts is located on 74 Pleasant Street in Morrisville, VT. Gallery hours: Sunday - Friday, 9a.m.-4p.m.. For off hours please call ahead. Admission is free.

Galen Cheney Exhibition - Look Up

Galen Cheney Exhibition - Look Up

Edgewater Gallery at Stowe unveils new work by painter Galen Cheney in her solo exhibition Look Up . The exhibition will be on view March 10th through May 4th, with a reception on Friday, March 23rd from 5:30-7:00pm. Her artist talk will begin at 6:00pm.

The essence of the work exhibited in Look Up is process driven abstraction. Experimentation and exploration of materials are central to this body of work. Cheney’s paintings build physically in form - surfaces are built, carved, scraped into. Mixed media layers transform her paintings into a sculptural presence. Says Cheney of her process, “I want my paintings to brim with energy and tension, muscularity, fragility, and heart.” Cheney’s new body of work involves a deepened exploration of work created during a residency in China in 2015. She is now using multi-layered constructions, adding new ways of working liquid acrylic on raw canvas and collage. Cheney’s work is often described as a mixture of urban contemporary, bursting with energies of forces steeped in nature, and always pushing boundaries. Current influences are the work of Angel Otero, Mark Bradford, John Walker, among others.

Cheney, originally from Los Angeles, moved east and spent years working and exhibiting in Vermont. Her professional art practice spans nearly thirty years.The artist now lives and paints in North Adams, Massachusetts, minutes away from the creative energy of Mass MoCA. Cheney received her B.A. from Mount Holyoke College and her M.F.A. from the Maryland Institute, College of Art.

Her work has been shown and collected in Europe, Canada, China, and throughout the US. Recent exhibitions include The Painting Center in New York City, Gray Contemporary in Houston, Greenville Center for Creative Arts in Greenville, SC, and Da Wang Culture Highland in Shenzhen, China. Recognition for her work includes an exhibition award at Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, residency fellowships to The Millay Colony, the Vermont Studio Center, and Da Wang Culture Highland in Shenzhen, China, as well as publication in New American Paintings, and a recent nomination for a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant for Painting.

Cheney will also be teaching a painting workshop “Beauty in Process” at Helen Day Art Center on Saturday, March 10.

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts

Vacation MakerCamp at Green Mountain Performing Arts

The Why
Out-of-school learning programs in the summer months provide critical support and enriching experiences for children and teens.
A safe, healthy environment over the summer weeks can make all the difference in a child’s inner and outer well-being. The opportunity to discover or pursue passions is invaluable.
Self-confidence soars as collaborative abilities strengthen during camp experiences that develop age-appropriate skills.
The How
Get absorbed in imaginative, creative projects that whiz, buzz, jitter, wobble, wiggle, blink, and shine.
Learn about electrical circuitry and take away items that you may wish to continue working on at home
The What
Participants may choose to integrate their creations into video expressions that can be filmed and edited to include sound and animations.
With a wide variety of materials and digital media, this program experience will include construction of cardboard pinball machines, simple robots, and simple electronic wearable items.
Both an imaginative and creative outlet for vacation fun AND a structured opportunity to use building tools and follow a progression of skill-building.
We will build small robots, hack into electronic toys, and create wearable electronics such as bracelets, hats, hairbands, etc.
To learn about electrical circuitry, we'll use LEDs, coincell batteries and conductive materials such as thread, paint, and electro-dough.
We'll use hobby motors, alligator clips, and battery packs, and more.
We may even use a sewing machine, a soldering iron, or a dremel -- maybe even all three.

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.

For further information on ​Roots​, please call Edgewater Gallery in Stowe at 802.760.6785, email info@edgewatergallery-vt.com, or visit edgewatergallery.co/edgewater-in-stowe
