SoundMind

SoundMind

Developed and led by Skidmore College professor Adam Tinkle and presented in conjunction with the exhibit ANGUS MCCULLOUGH: COINCIDENCE CONTROL, SoundMind is a site-specific, participatory workshop that combines meditation, sensory awareness, and aesthetic activation of the breath, body, and voice. Individually, in pairs, and as a group, participants will explore resonance and vibration through touching, listening, and collaborative creation.

“I’m interested in ways of forming community,” Tinkle said, “of overcoming our natural tendency in this day and age toward individuation, all being in our own space and on our own phones. Using our voices together in the same space is a powerful reminder that we have the option of being together.”

Please wear comfortable clothes and bring an open mind and a willingness to vocalize.

ADMISSION: Free

Vermont Filmmakers Bring Award-winning Feature Film, 'Farmer of the Year' to the Haskell Opera House

Vermont Filmmakers Bring Award-winning Feature Film, 'Farmer of the Year' to the Haskell Opera House

After selling his farm, an aging farmer finds himself useless and adrift. Struggling to maintain his youth he sets out in a ’73 Winnebago to attend his 65th WWII reunion in California with his aimless and unreasonably self-confident granddaughter. As the journey progresses so does their relationship and they begin to understand and appreciate each other as individuals while discovering that being young and being old aren’t all that different.

Starring Barry Corbin ('Northern Exposure') and Terry Kiser ('Weekend at Bernies'). Drama with embedded comedy. A deceptively simple look at aging, transitions, loss and family. Winner: New Filmmakers Forum at the St Louis Int'l Film Festival. Audience awards: Woods Hole, Sedona and Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festivals. 1h 43min.

"Swanson's screenplay avoids sentimentality, achieving instead the kind of gentle, humanistic comedy we rarely see these days in movie theaters."

Gilbert & Sullivan's MHS Pinafore

Gilbert & Sullivan's MHS Pinafore

The Great River Theater and Main Street Arts presents:
Gilbert & Sullivan's HMS Pinafore

Written by Gilbert & Sullivan
​Directed by Annesa Hartman

Packed with playful passion on the seas, this satirical sendup helped Gilbert and Sullivan set a new course for modern musical theatre. The captain’s daughter has caught the eye – and the heart - of two men at once: a lowly sailor and the pompous Sir Joseph Porter. Only a bumbling baby-farmer named Little Buttercup can unravel this mess of mistaken identities and mismatched marriages. Filled with infectious tunes and featuring a rousing finale, it’s no wonder this classic comedy still makes a modern-day splash!

Tickets:​ $20 / $10 Youth (12 & under) / $15 Senior

Show dates and times:
Saturday, July 6 at 7:30 pm

Hallowed Ground- In search of Ireland’s Unworldly Sites. Gaal Shepoherd

Hallowed Ground- In search of Ireland’s Unworldly Sites. Gaal Shepoherd

Sites that were once sacred ground to the Druids and other pagans who inhabited Ireland in pre-history times are still there, if you look hard enough. Many have been transmogrified over the centuries into holy Christian places often visited by current-day Irish people seeking spiritual help. Vermont artist Gaal Shepherd has spent the past 30 years traveling around Ireland, disturbing farmers with questions, taking photographs, painting landscapes, visiting these often spooky and remote, always dramatic and spectacular sites, and talking endlessly with Irish men and women about their heritage. The result is Hallowed Ground, an exhibition of her paintings, pastels and sculpture, as well as her photographs accompanied by the poems of a broad collection of Irish poets, past and present, who comment on the ancient sites and their significance.

DIG Written & Directed by Theresa Rebeck

DIG Written & Directed by Theresa Rebeck

A new play from the author of DOWNSTAIRS

A dying plant shop in a dying urban neighborhood receives a visitor from the past: Meghan, the neighborhood screw-up, whose suicide attempt followed a terrible tragedy. Roger, the store owner, wants nothing to do with this situation, but Meghan is improbably clinging to life. Can a soul beyond saving be saved? A play about courage, redemption and photosynthesis.

Dorset Theatre Festival Resident Playwright Theresa Rebeck (Broadway’s 2018 Bernhardt/Hamlet), has developed more than six productions at the Festival that have gone on to other stages around the country, including 2017’s Downstairs starring Tim Daly and Tyne Daly, which ran Off-Broadway at Primary Stages in fall 2018. The Most Broadway-Produced Female Playwright of Our Time, Rebeck returns to Dorset on the heels of the new spy thriller, 355 (with Jessica Chastain’s production company Freckle Films), for which she penned the script, having sold at the Cannes Film Festival market last spring.

DIG has received an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award to support the world premiere production at Dorset Theatre Festival. Piloted in 2006 with Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, the Edgerton Foundation New Play Awards give plays in development extended rehearsal periods for the entire creative team, including the playwrights. The program launched nationally in 2007 and has awarded grants to non-profit theatres for 393 new plays to date. The Edgerton Foundation was awarded the 2011 TCG National Funder Award.

Lyell Castonguay: Tributes

Lyell Castonguay: Tributes

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to announce the artist opening and reception for "Lyell Castonguay: Tributes," an exhibition of woodblock prints Saturday, June 15, 5-7 pm. The show continues through July 28, and an Artist Talk is scheduled for July 14, 5 pm.

Castonguay is co-founder, along with Carand Burnet, of BIG INK, a unique, travelling, nationally recognized woodblock printmaking partnership providing audiences an opportunity to create large - up to 8 feet - hand pulled woodcuts.

Castonguay’s woodblock prints invoke disparate influences including Japanese ukiyo-e, the naturalist works of Audubon and the expressionism of Baskin. He fills his paracosm with familiar animals made beholden with human emotions. Being a birder himself, most of his images are avian or strangely bird-like, bold personalities seemingly at odds with each subject’s intrinsic wildness. The artist’s distorted narratives often incorporate covert references to environmental decline, natural resource commodification, and displacement.

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer. Regular gallery hours: Wed. - Mon., 11-5.

Light and Color by Chris Jeffrey

Light and Color by Chris Jeffrey

Chris Jeffrey is a central Vermont-based artist whose work, through the use of color, light and very often the viewer’s own physical involvement, encourages people to experience a heightened awareness and sense of presence as they interact with the world around them. Recent work, including a series of self-contained light boxes, strip paintings and wire paintings are on display and beg for the viewer to be physically involved in order to fully bring them to life.

The series of self-contained light boxes show fluorescent objects bursting into color under UV light and then -- through mirrors -- seem to recede into infinity. Viewing these is more or less a physically passive experience, in which it’s the mind that, ideally, experiences a sense of movement and expansion.

For a more active counterbalance, the boxes are accompanied by what Jeffrey’s call “wire paintings” and “strip paintings.” These are examples of the type of kinetic art that requires the viewer to be physically involved in order to fully bring it to life. The perception of the wire paintings in particular changes dramatically depending on the speed with which the viewer moves past them and how far away he or she is. (And yes, some queasiness is a not uncommon reaction to them…) The strip paintings are more subdued, more of an exploration of color, but the experience of them also varies quite a bit depending on the angle they are viewed at and the speed with which the viewer walks by.

Reception: Friday, July 5 from 6-8pm

OF LAND AND LIGHT: Photography of Jim Westphalen

OF LAND AND LIGHT: Photography of Jim Westphalen

West Branch Gallery is proud to present the emotive, nostalgic pigment prints of Jim Westphalen.
One can visit the same scene many times and feel different emotions each time. Why? Jim captures the fleeting light play which changes hourly, daily, seasonally, and brings us personally into the landscape and deep into our memories.
The images in this body of work were very deliberately planned and created with a particular type of light in mind, thus telling a very particular story within each image.
Inspired by painters Andrew Wyeth, A. Hale Johnson and Edward Hopper, Westphalen creates imagery in which weather, light and composition come together with a painter’s eye. These transportive images take us to a place of escape, renewing an appreciation for this beautiful land that we call Vermont.

Within Sight/With Insight

Within Sight/With Insight

Within Sight/With Insight : New paintings by Helen Shulman and Kevin Kearns
Two artists are featured in the main gallery with new works that share dramatic color palettes with very different outcomes.

Kevin Kearns' landscapes come from a place where memory, reality and imagination are combined. They are atmospheric, sensual and continue to evolve overtime, allowing us, the viewer, to enter into a splice of his world. Having immersed himself in the business of art direction in film and 2-d work for many years, his vast experience and curiosity with composition, structure and color earned Kearns a Lions award from the Cannes Film Festival and an Emmy nomination.

Helen Shulman often starts her paintings with a landscape underpainting. The initial concept is then abstracted by layers of cold wax, oil paints; then sanded, scraped to reveal complex relationships of color, form, geometry. As if one stopped on the road to look closely at the shadow and light play at one’s feet, Shulman’s paintings bring the viewer deeply into the sensation of nature. Shulman’s work is exhibited widely and in the collections of Dana Farber Institute and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park represents the regions finest contemporary artists. The thoughtful selection and exhibition of art, and a respect for artists and collectors are gallery hallmarks. The gallery provides an inviting space for visitors to experience art in their own way.

Like Driving on an Ancient Road

Like Driving on an Ancient Road

Burlington-based photographer Andrew Frost's exhibit, Like Driving on an Ancient Road, is a collection of work from several different series, spanning over the course of a decade. Themes of his work include the exploration of the concept of place, whether it be coming back to Vermont where his family has lived for more than 200 years or longing for a connection after feeling like he was from nowhere and everywhere. Frost’s photographs ask viewers to question how they reconcile the idea of a place with the reality of living there.

Living in Vermont, Frost knows that driving on an ancient road is treacherous: they are narrow, seldom a straight line, and might just be impassable. It takes care and caution; sometimes it goes quickly, and sometimes it goes very slowly. His work reflects this as he earnestly explores the balancing act between the world he imagined for so long, and the place that he finally has experienced.

July 8th through August 16th
Artist Reception: Friday, July 12th 5:30 - 7 p.m.

A photography exhibit featuring the work of Marek Jagoda and Ea Maples. Ea and Marek are fine art photographers who have spent the last three years together exploring interesting places and historic buildings including many abandoned theaters throughout New England. They have documented the beautiful architecture of these theaters as well as done creative work in the mezzanines, stages, powder rooms, balconies, and foyers of these grand places that were built in a time where a great deal of attention was placed on the beauty of a space rather than just its functionality. The exhibit will also include some of their work photographing performances of Main Street Arts. The exhibit will pass through the spaces theater has occupied, the ghosts of these places, and the living soul of theater today.

Dusty Boynton: Reliefs

Dusty Boynton is well known for her paintings on canvas and works on paper. This exhibition is a culmination of a series of her “Reliefs” - painted and cut figures on wood. This is the first exhibition of this type of work. The New York Times described Boynton’s work as “Childlike, but not childish.” The sophistication and emotional intelligence that pours through her gestural figures is powerfully resonating.

Suzy Spence: On The Hunt

Suzy Spence: On The Hunt

Suzy Spence’s paintings consider contemporary power struggles through the elegant metaphor of fox hunting. Turning the genteel athletic, sartorial, and social traditions of fox hunting toward lucid social commentary, Spence creates psychologically-rich paintings of steely riders joined in dark complicity—soldiers, sisters, friends. They are on the hunt.

Exploring Water - Group Exhibition

Exploring Water - Group Exhibition

Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center
122 Hourglass Drive • Stowe, Vermont • 802.760.4634

On view at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center: June - August 31, 2019
Opening reception: Friday, July 26, 2019 • 5:00 - 6:30pm • A Stowe Arts Week 2019 Event

The gallery at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center launches a group exhibition up on the mountain in Stowe for the Summer Season. The exhibition opens with a dynamic collection - including photography, sculpture, cyanotypes, painting, video installation, window installation and mixed media. The exhibition is created by Kelly Holt, Spruce Peak Arts Curator, and features the work of artists: Mary Admasian, Kate Burnim, Renée Greenlee and Erika Senft Miller.

There will be a reception for this exhibition on Friday, July 26th from 5:00 - 6:30pm, during Stowe Arts Festival week and gallery walkabout.

Artists are responding to the following statement:

Water is never truly idle. It is life giving to all beings - essential in its purest form. It connects us as a planet in our global community and is inside of every human body - regardless of ethnicity, gender, race or religion. Water invigorates, yet soothes.The vastness of water welcomes and anoints, propels, generates power, and is increasingly precious as we respond to climate change. Water moves us forward as we paddle past each other without a glance. Immerse yourself and experience water through all senses. While water is a medium of consciousness, like AIR it also transcends culture.

Artists in this exhibition are responding to many aspects of water - from its physical forms to its important role in the ecosystem to its personal effect on our everyday lives and stories and well-being. Photographs by Erika Senft Miller depict ever-changing landscape of arctic glaciers “ice that holds information” suffering the impact of climate change. Through series of photographs, the artist shows how through the collective unconscious, we “all swim in the same story”. Senft Miller takes the audience on a multi-sensory video adventure from snowmaking alongside the gondola at Mt. Mansfield to the surface of a paddle board to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Mary Admasian’s mixed media pieces open a dialogue in an effort to “symbolize the emotional, phycological and physical experiences living in toxic environments” about the peril of plastics in waterways and ocean life with continued pollution in her series Peering Through Plastic. Traces of the ever-familiar six pack packaging of cans are found in the layers of her mixed media paintings. Kate Burnim’s addition of industrial paintings reveal a landscape of hydro electric plants. Her work speaks to “harnessing the massive power of water as we direct the river…creating energy while changing landscape and habitat through incredible feats of engineering” and what it means to claim power over the environment rather than with it. Renée Greenlee brings us home to Vermont with her delicate photographic studies titled Red Rocks Series on the edge of Lake Champlain. This personal journey is about healing “the way forward is unclear, as if walking through a fog”. Greenlee is also exhibiting a series of cyanotypes created on the shores of Lake Champlain - her process with treated paper, freezing temperatures and brilliant sunlight brings forth “a chaotic kaleidoscope of blues with sand, ice and debris…hand on the landscape”.

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

Jenny Swanson’s high-fire wall pieces, each one a unique microcosm, are inspired by the art of India, and by floating lotuses she was intrigued by during her residency in Shangyu, China. Also on view are her unglazed, low-fire sculptural vessels carbonized in saggars, in bottle and funnel-like forms. Swanson’s innovative work gracefully curves and undulates.

In contrast, Holly Walker’s terracotta forms are Shakeresque and utilitarian. Rolled coils of clay are glazed with bold colors that are playful, saturated, and luminous. Walker’s painterly designs are geometric, floral, and sometimes alphabetical. Walker’s colorfully patterned rectangular palettes and disc shapes are the foil to Jenny Swanson’s silky black and white ceramics.

Sarah Amos: Unique Multiples

Sarah Amos: Unique Multiples

Artist Reception: Friday, June 21, 5–7 p.m.

Dividing her time between Northern Vermont and her native Australia, Sarah Amos is among a generation of artists who have devised conceptual and formal innovations in printmaking that transcend local histories and conventions to form new meanings. Combining multiple printmaking techniques -etching, monoprint, and collograph- with painting and stitch work; Amos upends traditional notions of printmaking to create monumentally scaled works that evoke a confluence of cultures. Her large-scale prints and multiples allude to organic, scientific, and cultural ideas while exploring materiality and memory.

Sarah Amos: Unique Multiples is presented by Leunig’s Bistro & Café.

Job Site: Alisa Dworsky and Bill Ferehawk

Artist Reception: Friday, June 21, 5–7 p.m.

Job Site is a collaborative, multimedia installation that explores the drawing and choreography inherent in architecture. This room-sized installation captures the embedded and often overlooked moments of mark making and movement that animate the creation of buildings such as stray hammer marks or snapped chalk lines. Incorporating paper, graphite, wood and video projection, Job Site honors the tradition of New England’s wood frame construction while revealing the mystery beneath the surface of everyday structures that surround and protect us.

Exhibit: The War of Ideas: Propaganda Posters from the Vermont Historical Society Collections

Showcasing items from the Vermont Historical Society collections spanning the Civil War to World War II, visitors can examine how posters have been an important part of the wartime effort, for everything from recruitment to support on the homefront. In a pre-digital world, inspiring artwork and pithy phrases were a key way the United States government could boost patriotism and gain material support. Viewing these posters alongside each other allows you to see similarities and differences as that messaging evolved over a century.

History Center exhibits are open Monday-Friday & Second Saturdays, 9am-4pm. Admission is by donation.

In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow

Shelburne Museum is thrilled to present In Their Element: Jonathan D. Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow, an outdoor installation featuring the evocative work of three contemporary artists on view across the Museum’s expansive campus, from May 1 through October 31, 2019. These captivating sculptures complement and amplify one another through their shared engagement with fire, wind, and earth – subjects of fascination since antiquity. Exploring themes ranging from the anatomy of wildlife, the buoyancy of inflated steel forms, to the relationship between site-specific stone structures within the natural environment, Ebinger, Nava, and Snow push the boundaries of their respective materials and processes, revealing new experimentation with these classical elements.
