Sophie Jones

Sophie Jones

Inspired by true experiences of grief, girlhood, and growing up, Jessie Barr’s directorial debut, Sophie Jones, provides a stirring portrait of a sixteen year old. Stunned by the untimely death of her mother and struggling with the myriad challenges of teendom, Sophie (played with striking immediacy by the director’s cousin Jessica Barr) tries everything she can to feel something again, while holding herself together, in this sensitive, acutely realized, and utterly relatable coming-of-age story. And yet, the film is imbued with a dry sense of humor. This is no clichéd coming-of-age story.

The direction rejects linear storytelling to operate more as a series of vignettes, spread out over two or so years, which follow Sophie as she struggles to mourn her mother, develop her own personality, and explore her sexual identity. We jump forward sometimes days, sometimes weeks, sometimes months, but the focus is always two-pronged: the inner sadness Sophie carries that she rarely shares with anyone else, and the outer sexual confidence—tiptoeing into aggression—that she displays as she jumps from guy to guy.

A Shape of Things to Come

A Shape of Things to Come

A Shape of Things to Come is a provocative portrait of a loner named Sundog who lives on the border in the Sonoran desert. The film creates a world that stretches from the distant past, to the ecological movements of the 1960’s, to a possible apocalyptic future. Sundog has a zen/rock n roll sensibility —everything he does is of surprising interest. Each frame of this carefully put together documentary contributes to a double-edged portrait of Sundog: succinct, suspenseful and mysterious. With stunning photography and imagery of the natural world of the desert. ~ Arnie Malina, VTIFF programming committee

Rose Plays Julie

Rose Plays Julie

A young adopted woman tracks down her birth mother only to be confronted by revelations that draw her into the dark world of her father. This is a film about digging up the past in more ways than one. Like Molloy and Lawlor’s previous films, it, too, explores their recurrent, glitchy themes of identity/doubling and performance. But there are also strong undercurrents referring to Greek myths from Oedipus and Electra as well as King Agamemnon’s killing of one of goddess Artemis’ sacred stags. The film was shot on location in Dublin and Wicklow in the summer of 2018, its powerful soundtrack was originally composed and arranged by Irish composer, Stephen McKeon.

F.T.A.

F.T.A.

The Show the Pentagon Couldn’t Stop!” In 1971, at the height of the Vietnam War, Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland toured an anti-war comedy show across Southeast Asia. It was directly engaged with and inspired by veterans against the war and, naturally, it upset U.S. military higher-ups. The F.T.A. tour was highly controversial and was a huge success among stationed soldiers.

In spite of positive reviews and business, director Francine Parker’s film version was quickly taken out of circulation due to political pressures and has been difficult to see for decades.
F.T.A. has now been fully restored in 4K by IndieCollect.

With: Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland, Paul Mooney Len Chandler, Peter Boyle, Holly Near, Rita Martinson, Michael Alaimo.

The Inheritance

The Inheritance

After nearly a decade exploring different facets of the African diaspora — and his own place within it — Ephraim Asili makes his feature-length debut with The Inheritance, an astonishing ensemble work set almost entirely within a West Philadelphia house where a community of young, Black artists and activists form a collective. A scripted drama of characters attempting to work towards political consensus — based partly on Asili’s own experiences in a Black liberationist group — weaves with a documentary recollection of the Philadelphia liberation group MOVE, the victim of a notorious police bombing in 1985. Ceaselessly finding commonalties between politics, humor, and philosophy, with Black authors and radicals at its edges, The Inheritance is a remarkable film about the world as we know it.

The Art of Technology exhibit

The Art of Technology exhibit

The Exhibit will feature:

-Peter Wallis with animation and art in two of our first-floor galleries.

As an artist, he is interested in where the sacred and mundane exist in a liminal space of the past, present and dreams. His work is a collection of objects and places set in a landscape of memory that connects these objects to where he has been and where he is going.

This recent body of work is a bildungsroman series that tells the story of his childhood in Vermont and Maine with the layers of history of New England and California coming together in a shared space.


-Robert Gold, solo gallery with photography of images. His photographs use combined technologies and accidental discoveries, plus good old fashioned free hand all combined.



-Robert Waldo Brunelle Jr. pieces of kinetic art.



-Castleton University Art Department with student work and a unique light display in many of the mansion windows.

Chaffee artist members will also have work on display and for sale in the upstairs galleries, as well as in the Gallery Shoppe that is filled with handmade treasures and gift ideas for any occasion, or even for yourself! This exhibit will be up until April 16th.



As we celebrate 60 years as an art center in the Rutland Community, we also invite you to join as an artist, single or family member to help the Chaffee to continue to inspire and cultivate creativity, while positively impacting the vitality of our community through the arts.

Two Exhibitions in Honor of Women's History Month: Stefania Urist | Christine Hauck, Ellen Keene, Amanda Sisk, Heather Szczepiorkowski.

Two Exhibitions in Honor of Women's History Month: Stefania Urist | Christine Hauck, Ellen Keene, Amanda Sisk, Heather Szczepiorkowski.

I Give You Life | You Give Me Death: Stefania Urist- The new body work is informed by her research on trees and forests. By studying tree rings, the new series of works on paper confronts a tree’s memory and the ghosts of old growth trees and forests. Tree rings, which are the timeline of the tree’s life, are fragmented into “milling patterns” used to cut logs into lumber. In the lumber industry, milling patterns are similar to a grid, the pattern is used to maximize space and board feet depending on what strength of lumber is desired. The beautiful, natural, curvy grain formation in lumber is decontextualized from the life of a tree once it is used for building or craft. Like a completed puzzle, she uses the grid of the milling pattern as an overlay incorporating the original rings, thereby mapping the life of the tree and reconnecting it to the memory of its whole form, life, and community. Utilizing sculpture, works on paper, and installation, I Give You Life | You Give Me Death examines how humanity has used trees and forests as a commodity-driven resource instead of living in symbiosis with these beings. The exhibition is generously supported by The Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation and a Creation Grant Award from Vermont Arts Council.

Sacred Encounters: Christine Hauck, Ellen Keene, Amanda Sisk, Heather Szczepiorkowski. This group of contemplative sculptors offers an exhibition to coincide with National Women’s History Month. The installation will include life-size angelic figures accompanied by wall-mounted reliefs, a collection of works made of stone and clay illuminating an appreciation for the revered, and a transcendent quest for Divine beauty. Through subject matter inherent of heavenly intent, the artists convey a message of hope and healing; each artist aims to engage the viewer in uplifting, playful, and transformative ways. The group will define the exhibition ‘path’ for the viewers, thereby evoking a meditative journey from start to finish. “We are on a light-bringing mission and hope that the work can inspire and uplift all who have suffered in these dark days.”

PoemTown St. Johnsbury

PoemTown St. Johnsbury

Catamount Arts, the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum, and the St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce are delighted to announce events for PoemTown St. Johnsbury, a celebration of National Poetry month in April. Affiliated with PoemCity in Montpelier, PoemTown St. Johnsbury papers shop windows and storefronts with poems, hosts readings and remembrances, and decorates the town with yellow haiku circles.

This year’s programming includes two Zoom events hosted by the Athenaeum: an Open Mic poetry reading on Friday, April 16, at 6pm, and a Robert Frost Remembrance on Sunday, April 25th, at 4pm. Members of the public are also encouraged to contribute haiku circles throughout the month of April for inclusion in PoemTown St. Johnsbury decorations.

The Open Mic Zoom event on Friday, April 16, invites readers of all ages to share a poem, theirs or someone else’s, or attend as a spectator. Those wishing to read a poem must register online in advance to secure a slot in the program. Readers are not required to read their own work. They may read an original poem of their own writing, or they may read a selection from a favorite poet.

Patrons do not have to read a poem to attend the Open Mic Zoom event. All are welcome to attend as spectators to enjoy an evening of poetry and support local poets and poetry fans. Spectators and readers alike must register in advance, however, at the Athenaeum’s web site in order to get the link to this online event.

The Robert Frost Remembrance event, also on Zoom, will celebrate the poetry and legacy of the famed long-time Vermont resident and poet laureate. This event is organized by the Northeast Storytellers and hosted by the Athenaeum. To participate in this event by presenting or merely attending, please register in advance at the Athenaeum web site.

Selections of poetry to be pasted on shop windows and storefronts have already been collected, but it’s not too late to contribute haikus to decorate downtown. All are welcome through the entire month of April to pick up a yellow paper circle at Cosmic Cup Café on Eastern Avenue or on Railroad Street at Boxcar & Caboose or Moose River Lake & Lodge. Write a haiku in black ink on your circle, and then drop it off anytime this month in the bin on the front steps of Catamount Arts.

After last year’s events were canceled due to the pandemic, PoemTown St. Johnsbury 2021 feels particularly poignant, notes Catamount Arts Education Director Anne Campbell. “We’re so excited to bring poetry back,” she says. Campbell encourages everyone to take a stroll through downtown St. Johnsbury this month and enjoy some poetry. With over 100 submissions and counting, maybe you’ll spot contributions from friends, neighbors, and classmates you’ve missed this past year.

Maɬni — Towards The Ocean, Towards The Shore

Maɬni — Towards The Ocean, Towards The Shore

Directed by Sky Hopinka (2020).
Maɬni (pronounced moth-nee), is a lush, poetic contemplation on the cycle of afterlife, rebirth, and death based on Chinookan cosmology from the Pacific Northwest. Probing questions about humanity’s place on earth and other worlds, Sky Hopkina’s new visionary film will have audiences thinking (and dreaming) about it long after. Narrated in both Chinuk Wawa and English, maɬni expands the viewer’s sense of place to both language and legacy. Their stories take a departure from the Chinookan people’s circular origin-of-death myth, probing questions about humanity’s place both on earth and in other worlds.

"Rapturous. Feels like a richly woven ghost story."— Hyperallergic


“Stunning. Hopinka’s use of color in Malni is nothing short of astonishing. One of the most awe-inspiring films I saw.” -Rogerebert.com

Pet Project: Brandon Artists Guild All-Member, All-Media Exhibit

Pet Project: Brandon Artists Guild All-Member, All-Media Exhibit

The Brandon Artists Guild (BAG) announces its “Pet Project” – an animal-themed exhibit that celebrates all creatures great and small. The exhibit runs from March 5 through May 2. There will be a free closing reception on Friday April 23 from 5PM to 7PM.

The all-media, all-member show includes works in paint, fiber, glass, ceramics, collage, wood and more.

“We’re calling it ‘Pet Project’ because it’s truly a topic that’s near and dear to our hearts,” says dog lover and illustrator Ashley Wolff. “Plus, it’s about pets, of course. With so many people stuck at home these days, we’re spending more time with our animal companions and getting to know them better. Pets help keep us calm in these strange times.”

Because of COVID concerns, the BAG will be holding a closing reception in late April, rather than an opening reception in March.
The BAG, at 7 Center Street in Brandon, is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10AM to 5PM, Sundays from 10AM to 4PM. Information: 802 247-4956.

3/6/21 10:00am - 5/2/21 5:00pm

Faces of Addison County: A Trent Campbell Retrospective

Faces of Addison County: A Trent Campbell Retrospective

This exhibit can be viewed on the Sheldon Museum's website, https://www.henrysheldonmuseum.org/faces-of-addison-county
It will be available for in-person viewing at the Sheldon Museum starting the week of July 13 through September 11, 2021

The Sheldon Museum is pleased to honor Trent Campbell in this retrospective exhibit. Campbell, a longtime resident of Middlebury, learned photography at his grandfather’s knee in his home state of Minnesota. He became the Addison County Independent photographer in 1998 where he took award-winning photos around the county for more than 20 years. Campbell spent many hours on assignment and even more wandering the back roads of the county, meeting and getting to know countless residents. He became a fixture at events and was an expected sight with his trademark camera and warm smile. Campbell’s career was interrupted in 2018 when he survived the first of two strokes. He continues his recovery but still has his unique eye. He may be shooting less but still loves the county and the people in it.

Campbell said, “I feel so embraced and supported by the people of Addison County after serving them through my work that I want to give back to them and celebrate them with this collection of photographs.” Read more about Campbell in an article that appeared in the Addison County Independent on April 1, 2021.

When Campbell started at the paper he shot on Tri-X film using Nikon 35 mm SLRs. He loaded and developed his own film and then scanned the negatives to make prints for the paper. Campbell switched to digital cameras in 2001, and all the prints on exhibit here are from images captured with either a Nikon D1H or a Nikon D300.
