Summer Concert Series: Pete's Posse

Summer Concert Series: Pete's Posse

Local folk hero PETE SUTHERLAND and his protege OLIVER SCANLON met up when Oliver was a shy 4th grader, where the two wordlessly bonded over fiddle music. Several years later they began to play out, later joining forces with guitarist Tristan Henderson to form ‘PETE’S POSSE’, a hard-driving trio that spent half a dozen years touring nationally and internationally with its innovative blend of rocking contradance music, thoughtful and hilarious original songs and soulful three part acapella. The Posse spent the first 8 months of the largely gig-free pandemic recording a double album of new music before Tristan left to be with his family in Quebec. With the trio in hibernation, Pete and Oliver have revived their duo act, featuring a wide variety of instrumental combinations, informed by all the musical styles and sounds the trio is known for, and continuing to keep the Posse flame burning while adding new repertoire to the mix.

Djibril Diop Mambéty’s “Hyenas” Comes to the Backlot Cinema

Djibril Diop Mambéty’s “Hyenas” Comes to the Backlot Cinema

As the sun sets on Friday, July 30th, the downtown Brattleboro arts organization Epsilon Spires will transform its parking lot into an outdoor movie theater for another evening of film and food in the Backlot Cinema Series. This week’s event pairs Djibril Diop Mambéty’s feature-length film Hyenas (1992) with Somali snacks by Jilib Jiblets.

Hyenas, which was nominated for the Golden Palm Award at Cannes in 1992, is a Senegalese adaptation of Friedrich Dürrenmatt's play The Visit—although with a distinctly African approach to storytelling born out of a rich history of oral tradition.

Mambéty’s first film, Touki Bouki (1972), won the International Critics Award at the Cannes Film Festival, and is considered by many to be the vanguard of new African cinema. Imagery from the film has been influential in pop culture, inspiring a video used in Beyonce and Jay-Z’s “On the Run II” tour in 2018.

Hyenas, Mambéty’s second and last feature film, tells the story of a woman returning to her impoverished hometown after amassing a fortune that has made her “as rich as the World Bank,” in the words of the villagers. In a wry commentary on the destructive influence of foreign wealth and power, the woman uses increasingly outlandish financial incentives to become the most influential person in the community, eventually persuading its inhabitants to turn against one of their own.

“My goal was to make a continental film, one that crosses boundaries,” Mambéty told Transition magazine in 1998, shortly before his death from lung cancer at the age of fifty-three. “We borrowed elephants from the Masai of Kenya, hyenas from Uganda, people from Senegal.” He adds that “the film depicts a human drama. My task was to identify the enemy of humankind: money, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank.”

Recently remastered in 4k UltraHD, Hyenas combines striking cinematography with a touch of the surreal to create an Africa that exists both in myth and in the hard realities of post-colonial capitalism. The film is also permeated by Mambéty’s keen sense of humor, with witty dialogue and clever visual contrasts that brighten the darker themes of Hyenas.

Refreshments during the screening will be available from Jilib Jiblets, a Winooski-based Somali catering company run by Said Bulle. “I grew up watching my mother cook for the family at her small restaurant in Jilib,” says Bulle on the company’s website. “When I came to America at the age of fifteen, I started to search for ways to connect with her. I found that connection in the kitchen.”

Jilib Jiblets will also be catering an event at Epsilon Spires the following night, July 31st, when Sandglass Theater presents a screening of their project “BABYLON: Journeys of Refugees,” which features an ensemble of performers telling refugees’ stories in puppetry and original songs.

Audience members for Backlot Cinema screenings are encouraged to bring blankets, pillows, and chairs to make themselves comfortable. Tickets for the event, which include entry into a raffle for gift certificates to local businesses, are $10 each. Restrooms will be available throughout the evening. In the event of rain, the screening will take place in the Sanctuary of Epsilon Spires.

Polo Shoots Photography Exhibit and Opening Reception

Polo Shoots Photography Exhibit and Opening Reception

LATCHIS GALLERY PRESENTS MARCO GRIMALDI
Stunning, evocative and masterful fine art photography

Brattleboro, VT…A new photography exhibit opening this month at the Latchis gallery in Brattleboro, VT, pays tribute to an artist who gives us a view into worlds both familiar and unfamiliar. We’re lucky to have these photos. Marco Grimaldi’s career was just getting started when he became a victim of the COVID-19 scourge last year. The pandemic caused so much tragedy but none more than the loss of this kind of talent and potential. We get a glimpse of the promise of a young life cut short and we have to consider ourselves lucky to have this much.

The exhibit, PoloShoots, named after Grimaldi’s company, will be open during Brattleboro Gallery Walk, Friday, July 2, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Gallery, 50 Main St., Brattleboro. A talk about the exhibit by Tom Orzechowski, photographer, videographer and Grimaldi’s business partner, will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the theater adjoining the Gallery. The exhibit is being presented by Marco’s mother, Guilford resident Susan Rosano, in partnership with Latchis Arts.

“Latchis Arts is profoundly honored to be partnering with Marco’s family and friends to present this exhibit. One of the important roles the Latchis can play in the coming months is to help all of us examine, understand, and process the pandemic and its overwhelming impacts. With all our hearts, we embraced the opportunity to provide a space where Marco’s work could be shown.” Jon Potter, Executive Director

The photographs that we now see are the result of a creative talent that became very evident at a young age when Grimaldi was growing up in Connecticut. A graduate of the Greater Hartford Academy of Arts and the Burlington College photography program, he came into his own as a photographer when he moved to Brooklyn, NY. There he started capturing friends, neighbors and clients in portraits that draw us into their worlds from fascinating viewpoints.

“Marco never shunned away the odd or weird,” Orzechowski explained. “Instead, he openly embraced the differences between people that made them unique. He was a cosmic traveler, picking up experiences and people along the way that really defined what it meant to be human.”
Grimaldi’s reputation spread, his work was published in local magazines and clients came to him with their most important projects, whether or not he was compensated; his main interest was in sharing his enthusiasm for photography which he did eagerly. As we look at the stunning portraits—of humans or the night sky—we come to know the personalities and step into their various worlds that might not ordinarily be open to us, from fashion to nature to a child at play.

“The PoloShoots Photography Exhibit is a tribute to my ingenious, imaginative son, Marco, and his creative accomplishments,” Susan Rosano explained. “I am devastated at the loss of him and my life on this earth will never be the same without him. I have been and will always be proud of him and his accomplishments with photography.” All the photographs were printed by Joshua Farr, executive director of the Vermont Center for Photography in Brattleboro.

The Latchis Gallery will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. for the month of July. Appointments for other times can be made and prints of the exhibit photos can be ordered by contacting Susan Rosano at srosano754@gmail.com.

Laughing Wild

Laughing Wild

ABOUT THE PLAY
By Christopher Durang
Directed by Jade King Carroll
In this hilarious blast-from-the-1980s comedy, two characters are overwhelmed by the things happening in the world around them. Desperate for connection in a sea of provocative pitfalls, they seek sanctuary in asylums, clinics and, during the course of the play, a theater. A timely and edgy look back to a time not so long ago, Laughing Wild will leave you screaming with laughter - or maybe just screaming!

Starring Dan Butler (Frasier), who starred in the Festival’s 2019 hit Slow Food, and five-time Festival performer and 2020 Drama Desk Award-winner Mary Bacon.

Laughing Wild is produced by Dorset Theatre Festival. CLICK HERE to learn about the Festival’s 2021 Sponsors.

Sam Thurston: Paintings, Pots and Sculpture

Sam Thurston: Paintings, Pots and Sculpture

Sam Thurston: Paintings, Pots and Sculpture
The Front, 6 Barre St., Montpelier
July 2- August 1, 2021, Opening Reception July 2, 4-7pm.
Artist Talk Thursday, July 22, 7pm in the gallery and via Zoom

Sam Thurston’s work communicates an interest in contrasted flatness and architectural space. Using various media (oil paint, wood, ceramics) and working in both two and three dimensions, he explores many traditional themes and motifs such as the figure, landscape, and still life. He often paints directly from life and sometimes works from his imagination. Some scenes reference poems, creating a narrative sensibility without revealing the whole story to the viewer. Thurston is interested in architectural space, and the tension between the flatness of a drawing and the idea of volume comes through in his pottery – much of which uses blocky, angular forms glazed with drawn and painted images. By contrast, his sculptural figures use mass and dimensionality to full effect. In playing between flatness and dimensionality, Thurston’s expressions almost seem to live in an earlier era, hearkening to iconic work of the 1920s and 30s. The opening reception will be July 2, 4-7pm, and the show runs through August 1st, with an artist talk July 22; see thefrontvt.com for additional details.

On a gray, foggy morning outside a large Polish city, a masseur from the East named Zhenia (Alec Utgoff, Stranger Things) enters the lives of the wealthy residents of a gated community. With his hypnotic presence and quasi-magical abilities, he is able to get a residence permit and starts plying his trade. The well-to-do residents in their cookie-cutter suburban homes seemingly have it all, but they all suffer from an inner sadness, some unexplained longing. The attractive and mysterious newcomer’s hands heal, and Zhenia’s eyes seem to penetrate their souls. To them, his Russian accent sounds like a song from the past, a memory of simpler times. The latest from writer/director Malgorzata Szumowska (Elles, In the Name of) and her longtime collaborator Michal Englert is an unclassifiable meditation on class, immigration, and global warming shot through with Lynchian touches of the otherworldly and moments of sober beauty and unexpected humor.

Truman and Tennessee

Truman and Tennessee

The brilliant work, personal struggles, and cultural impact of iconic American writers Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams explodes onto the screen in this innovative dual-portrait documentary. Filmmaker Lisa Immordino Vreeland masterfully collages a wealth of archival material, including dishy talk show appearances with Dick Cavett and David Frost, with clips from some of the duo’s most memorable movie adaptions: A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Glass Menagerie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and In Cold Blood. Featuring vibrant voice-over work by award-winning actors Jim Parsons (Capote) and Zachary Quinto (Williams), the film is dripping with wit and wisdom.


It is a celebration of both men’s fearless candor and often tumultuous friendship that honors how their identity as gay Southerners informed their timeless artistic achievements and relationships with family, colleagues, confidants, and – most significantly – each other.

Winner, Best Narrative Feature at the Santa Fe Film Festival.

Magalie is a popular blonde 13-year old in the small town of Sainte-Adeline, Québec, is keeping a shocking secret: she’s pregnant. But when she refuses to identify the real father, suspicions among the townsfolk come to a boiling point and the layers of a carefully maintained social varnish eventually crack. in a thriller-like structure, details unveil step after small step – the film will keep you uneasily on the edge of your seat. It “astutely unearths the racism that lurks under the surface of seemingly-woke white suburbia.”

Against the Current

Against the Current

How far do you have to travel to find yourself? And what sacrifices are you willing to make to get there? Veiga Grétarsdóttir is the first person in the world to attempt to kayak over 2,000 kilometers around Iceland, counter-clockwise and “against the current.” This achievement has been said to be comparable to climbing the mountain K2. Veiga’s personal journey is no less remarkable. She was born 44 years ago as a boy in a fishing village on the far west coast of Iceland. Veigar had a wife and family but decided that she could no longer live as a man, and at the age of 38, decided to undergo gender reassignment. The inner struggle for Veigar to become Veiga was a journey as difficult if not more so than the solo kayak expedition she undertakes. These two stories of conflict and struggle are intertwined as the film follows her amazing 103 day journey around Iceland, with the magical, rugged coastline of the country a backdrop to the story of Veiga’s transition.

Looking UP, a group exhibition

Carter-Kelsey Lobby Gallery. Artists were invited to submit work with themes on vertical vantage points and optimism. We spend so much of our time with our gaze cast downward, looking into the glass of our smartphones, scrolling through images, the internet, and messages. Virtually existing in a liminal space, caught between code and algorithm. We forget to look up, up through the pane of a window or bow of a tree, into the blue of the sky. Sunlight and fresh air renew us; it gives us energy and optimism, it can shift our perspective.

Bunny Harvey and Laurie Sverdlove: Conversation

Bunny Harvey and Laurie Sverdlove: Conversation

Conversation, paintings and mixed media works by Vermont artists Bunny Harvey and Laurie Sverdlove. During their eleven-year friendship, they have had many lively conversations about everything from politics to music, from evolution to particle physics, and to family histories. This collaborative exhibition demonstrates the artistic conversation between good friends who share a broad curiosity about the natural and manmade environment and both the unseen and readily observable worlds. The exhibited works render layered realities and reveal the way in which time affects objects and surfaces. Both professional artists with interesting travels and extensive careers. As artists, each have personal goals and explorations, and each has discovered and is continually evolving their lexicon to present ideas. Their work has been curated into groups and loosely organized around words and phrases offered as clues to, or reminders of, what might be exchanged; they open the conversation. These words are not illustrated by the paintings but are distillations of some references the artists have used as part of their studio life. The groupings are intentionally overlapping in many ways, and encourage the viewer to consider the notions presented, but also to ignore this verbal information and find their own purely visual connections. Their individual works speak to each other in ways that make for a special kind of conversation, not only as finished works to be seen as “art on the wall” but as two minds at work.

Students will learn about the traditional Irish and Scottish culture that surrounds the harp. We will also work on a beginner Scottish/Irish tune to perform together at the end of the 6 week workshop.

Transmigration: the passage of cells, populations, and spirit

Transmigration: the passage of cells, populations, and spirit

GreenTARA Gallery is happy to announce this second of the 2021 art shows with Vermont Artists: Jessica Scriver "A New Geography" and Mary Admasian "Marked".
The Gallery themes of "Transition, Transmigration, Transmission, and Transcendence" will permeate the four curated art shows of the year.

"TRANSMIGRATION: the passage of cells, populations, and spirit" is a condition of change and evolution that we’ve collectively tried to stabilize and control through our engineered constructions and our neocolonialist/post-industrial economic ways and which works against the natural conditions of movement and migration through cells, human and animal populations, and spirit or soul. Still, our own markings and geographies migrate through life from the microscopic to macroscopic, from the cellular and geographic to the spiritual levels of our own becoming.

Please join us: Friday July 23, 2021 4pm - 7pm for our Artists Reception. And... please park nearby at the North Hero Town Library!

"Transmigration" runs Friday July 9, 2021 thru Sunday August 29, 2021.
OPEN Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday 12noon - 6pm during Kraemer & Kin’s hours of operation.
For more information on the artists and on workshops please visit the GreenTARA website.

Myanmar's Women

North Branch Cafe in Montpelier is hosting a series of striking photographic portraits of women from different ethnic groups in Myanmar taken by Middlesex freelance photographer Elliot Burg during volunteer trips to the southeast Asian country in 2013 and 2016. Despite all the travails that their nation has experienced, says Burg, "Myanmar’s girls and women continue to raise children, labor in field and home, preserve their cultural traditions, and display the extraordinary dignity and beauty reflected in these photographs."

Enjoy the Art Stroll in Barre

Enjoy the Art Stroll in Barre

Imagine taking a self-guided sculpture tour and discovering North America’s largest zipper made from local granite. A few steps away, you will find a pair of granite gargoyles locked in a perpetual game of tug-of-war (it’s a sculptural bike rack, so feel free to ride over for a visit).

The Art Stroll in downtown Barre includes a variety of thought-provoking, beautiful historic and contemporary granite sculptures. Barre has a world-wide reputation for its carving granite and talented stone carvers.

Visit Barre and enjoy the Art Stroll. For information on the Art Stroll and other art activities, drop in on Studio Place Arts, a regional visual arts center located at 201 N Main Street.

You will find a slide show and on-line map at:

Platform

Platform

Platform explores the unique and extraordinary tale of three sisters rejecting the assumptions placed upon them to become masters of Wushu, a Chinese martial art. They are not free from the conservatism of their country – they are forced to cover themselves entirely, unlike their opponents – but they do not shy from these problems, and succeed in spite of them.

While one might expect the strictures of a theocratic state to impinge creative output, these very restrictions push filmmakers to extraordinary lengths to tell stories with unique, even revolutionary methods. While compelling in content, Sahar Mosayebi also proves herself very much a daughter of Iran’s history of engaging, well-crafted cinema. The editing is especially impressive, cutting together fights and training as though part of a choreographed action sequence. These scenes provide the documentary with a spark and the spirit of these fighters seems to infect the film itself – a welcome meeting of content and form. PLATFORM is more than a simple telling of a sporting success story, it is an inspirational, motivational film about what can be achieved with hard work and dedication.

The exhibit features the work of Vermont artist Pat Musick, and was conceived when Pat lay on the top of a hill and watched Skylab 4 arc across the skies above her. Six years later she would marry the Skylab 4 Commander, astronaut Jerry Carr, generating forty years of creativity as Musick responded to the unique world view that the space program gave to us.

Exploring Our Storied Past: Brattleboro Words Trail Murals, Maps and Sound

Exploring Our Storied Past: Brattleboro Words Trail Murals, Maps and Sound

From Abenaki petroglyphs and the first known African American poet Lucy Terry Prince, to Nobel Laureates like Saul Bellow, Jody Williams, Rudyard Kipling and a pantheon of colorful characters with impressive ‘firsts’ along the way, many have shaped the Brattleboro area into ‘something special’ that’s hard to define.

Now a product of a multi-year National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) backed exploration of ‘People, Places and History of Words in Brattleboro, Vermont’ offers a new way to make their stories accessible to all: the Brattleboro Words Trail, community-created audio stories linked to places in and around Brattleboro. The public is invited to listen to these stories on their phones while viewing Cynthia Parker Houghton's large, hand-carved clay murals created for the Trail at ‘Exploring Our Storied Landscape: Brattleboro Words Trail Murals, Maps and Sound.”

The multimedia exhibit opens on Friday, May 7, 2021, and will remain through September 2021. A full-scale Summer Words Trail exhibit will open July 2 at 118 Elliot, but the best way to listen is to hit the streets with the new app. Visitors can download the free Brattleboro Words Trail mobile app (available for free on the BrattleboroWords.org website) to hear audio pegged to 97 sites featured on the Downtown murals and maps. The murals will be continuously updated as the community adds new stories to the Trail, which will grow under the auspices of the Vermont Folklife Center.

Kate Pond from the Heart: A Sculptor's Process

Kate Pond from the Heart: A Sculptor's Process

Vermont sculptor Kate Pond grew up on a hill farm in Montpelier, Vermont and studied art at Skidmore College and in Paris, France. She resides in Burlington and has installed public sculptures in the United States, New Zealand, Canada, Norway, and Japan. Her Sheldon Museum exhibit From the Heart features maquettes and drawings that reflect her artistic process plus three robust sculptures (two metal, one wooden) installed in the Museum’s garden. “My sculpture isn’t precious; it invites participation: with people, and with the sun, shadows and alignments at different seasons of the year. The position of the sun, moon and stars creates a structure, as a painter uses a rectangle for a frame of reference. Inspiration also comes from curves seen in nature.”

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.

Open to Landscape: Four Vermont Artists

After a year of closure due to Covid 19, Catamount Arts is pleased to announce the reopening of the Fried Family Gallery in its St. Johnsbury arts center. From July 1-September 26, 2021, Open to Landscape, a four person exhibition of paintings, photographs and works on paper, will be on view featuring works by Keith Chamberlin, Terry Ekasala, Anni Lorenzini and Elizabeth Nelson. The exhibition explores a range of artistic responses to Vermont’s dramatic landscape, from observed to imagined, in ways that touch upon the psychological and spiritual. Photographer Keith Chamberlin connects organic to the abstract; Terry Ekasala creates vibrantly colored dreams; Anni Lorenzini expands upon tonalist painting; and Elizabeth Nelson contemplates natural and geometric form in response to the I Ching Book of Changes. Taken together, the 35 paintings and 9 photographs in the exhibition present numerous opportunities for viewers to contemplate landscape as a way to understand the self-imposed isolation and unprecedented change we’ve all experienced over the past year.

Meleko Mokgosi: Scripto-visual, a solo exhibition

Scripto-visual, a neologism that comes from the combination of image and textual work, is a continuation of Meleko Mokgosi’s investigations regarding the links between these two elements in relation to the politics of representation. The artist will present a set of small and large works that are paired with different kinds of text; from poems to theoretical texts that deal with a variety of topics ranging from history to issues about the daily-lived experiences of particular sections of the population both in the United States and in southern Africa.

Henry at 200: Collector, Museum Founder & More

Henry Luther Sheldon, founder of the Henry Sheldon Museum, was born on August 15, 1821. This year we celebrate his birthday and his collecting passions. “ … I have spent all my leisure the past year trying to benefit future generations…” wrote Henry in his 1881 diary referring to his extensive collecting of local, regional and national historical materials. This exhibit explores his life, myriad of collecting pursuits, the establishment of what has become known as the oldest community-based Museum in the country, and an outstanding archive, the Stewart-Swift Research Center. Henry amassed one of the richest but little known historical collections in all New England, rendering Middlebury perhaps one of the best documented towns in the entire region. On view will be variety of historical documents, photographs, scrapbooks, autographs, Middlebury imprints, diaries, music ephemera, relics, a lock of Napoleon’s hair, and more!
