Katrin Bahr: East Germany in Mozambique, 1979–1990

Katrin Bahr: East Germany in Mozambique, 1979–1990

Between 1979 and 1990, East German teachers, engineers, and doctors moved to Mozambique as part of the Friendship Treaty with the German Democratic Republic. German scholar Katrin Bahr of UMass Amherst discusses how they brought not only their expertise but also their cameras, providing a fascinating glimpse into life in postindependence Mozambique. An exhibition on the same topic is on view in the adjacent Mahaney Gallery. Free

Paint & Sip with Business Professional Women of St. Johnsbury

Create a beautiful painting, reconnect, and meet new business and professional women at this networking event in the Highland Center for the Arts Café, hosted by Business Professional Women (BPW) as they celebrate their 99th year.

BPW was created in 1921 following the passage of the 19th Amendment in order to bring working women together to share business skills, provide a support network, and to champion Women’s Rights in the Workplace. Today, they continue that mission, while providing scholarships, professional development opportunities, and support for Veterans and women entering the workforce.

The Paint and Sip welcomes and introduces new people to the organization while providing an opportunity for women to gather for a fun evening. The cost of the painting workshop is $40 and includes painting supplies, the workshop, and a beverage from the Café. To register, email Tabitha at armstrong.tabitha@gmail.com.

Monica Bill Barnes & Company - Happy Hour

Monica Bill Barnes & Company - Happy Hour

Bring on the cheese puffs! This interactive experience thrusts you into that modern American affair, the office party—complete with drinks, karaoke and clueless dudes.

Ever felt like the most awkward person at a party? Not at this party: that role is covered by dancers Monica Bill Barnes and Elisa Clark, dressed in men's suits and steeped in ridiculous overconfidence. While you sip and socialize as at a typical office function, they swagger in and execute increasingly competitive dance numbers in an attempt to impress the ladies. No one makes better fun of mildly toxic masculinity than these two women. Choreographed by Barnes and performed by Barnes, Clark, and Robbie Saenz de Viteri, this hilarious, cathartic riff on gender roles and vulnerability has been performed everywhere from a barn in upstate New York to a villa in Italy.

Barnes founded MBB&CO in 1997 with the mission to celebrate individuality, humor, and the innate theatricality of everyday life. Other shows include The Museum Workout, in which the performers lead a choreographed exercise routine in an art museum; One Night Only (Running As Long As We Can), which announces dance performance play by play like sports; and Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host, where they turn radio stories into dance. In addition to Barnes, Clark and Creative Producing Director Saenz de Viteri, the company includes Set/Costume Designer Kelly Hanson and Lighting Designer Jane Cox. Together, this team creates the most unlikely experiences for every kind of audience.

Petria Mitchell: Light and Air

Petria Mitchell: Light and Air

Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Light and Air, an exhibition of new oil paintings by artist and gallery co-founder Petria Mitchell. The artist’s reception and opening is Saturday, August 3, 5-7 pm, and the show continues through September 22. An Artist Talk is scheduled for August 25, 5 pm.

Educated at an early age at The National Academy School of Design, New York, and The Vesper George School of Art, Boston, Mitchell has been actively involved with art making for over 50 years as a printmaker, engraver and painter. Mitchell serves or has been on numerous not-for profit boards, panels and committees. She co-founded Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts which will be celebrating its 5th anniversary by expanding its space and moving to its new upstairs space in the fall.

Mitchell’s paintings commence with small thumbnail sketches, quick emotional notations which become the foundation of her imagined landscapes. Tonal gradation and converging lines and forms dissolve into her signature elements of accumulating layers of atmosphere and mist. “Petria’s brushwork is wonderfully integrated into the light and darkness of her work. Her brushwork has an abstract quality to it that testifies to the authenticity of her work.” (Ric Campman, 2001)

BLACK and WHITE

BLACK and WHITE

BLACK and WHITE
Main Street Arts presents the artwork of Charmaine Wesley-Hartman & Terry Hartman
August 20 through September 24
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 29 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

BLACK and WHITE
Black and white are two opposites that attract each other’s company. Combining the two artists Charmaine and Terry, husband a wife, they bring out not only the extremes in life but the multiple shades of gray. The area of life where most of us exists. Splashes of color can add the sparkle and laughter this couple will exhibit to you in their paintings, original prints, drawings, prose, photographs, computer art, calligraphy and quilts.

Artists' Statements
Terry Hartman
The language of the visual arts is universal. It can speak to the social, economic, political, ethnic, and cultural issues of the past, present and future of humanity. It can unravel the simplest ideas or complicate them. It can bring clarity, truth and honesty to the viewer. It can also deceive or manipulate the mind. What is this fascination of the human condition over centuries to leave its trace on cave walls, earthworks, or street art?

Charmaine Wesley-Hartman
I am a semi-retired psychologist who has always appreciated abstract, contemporary and non-objective art. Whether it was Rothko, Pollock or any of the newer artists, I am drawn to the movements, values, and colors that spark my interest. I particularly like working with black and white acrylics and oil as a method of expressing my emotions and dreams. Even my quilts, which are hand-sewn, and machine top-stitched, represent my need to create using black and white. Of course, occasionally, a color or two will find their way onto my canvass and fabrics, but I always seem to return to the distinct black lines and the white spaces where grays can be found; just like in life.

Hank Jensen: Figure and Space

Hank Jensen: Figure and Space

To observe the 50th anniversary of the installation of the sculpture “Etruscan Stripes” at Northern Vermont University-Lyndon, an exhibit about the piece and other art by Hank Jensen will run Sept. 3-27 at Quimby Gallery on campus.

A discussion of Jensen’s work and the construction of “Etruscan Stripes” will be at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 17 in the Burke Mountain Room at Samuel Read Hall Library. The discussion, a reception at 3 p.m. Sept. 21 at the gallery, and the exhibit, “Hank Jensen: Figure and Space,” are free for the public.

Jensen, who died in 1999, was commissioned in 1968 to build the 7 1/2-ton, 10-foot-high sculpture, funded by the Vermont State Colleges System and Vermont Council on the Arts. He spent the winter of 1969-70 in residence at what was then Lyndon State College to build a full-size plywood model. Jensen finished the steel version at the Marshfield home of Chet Cole, a designer-craftsman, master welder and glassblower who collaborated in the construction. Cole died in 2017.

The outdoor sculpture sits between Alexander Twilight Theatre and the Theodore N. Vail Center.

The Quimby Gallery exhibit will feature studies for the finished sculpture, a film and photos documenting its construction and the transporting of the piece from Marshfield to the college, and other artwork by Jensen.

Quimby Gallery is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday. For more information, email the gallery director at Barclay.Tucker@NorthernVermont.edu, call 802.626.6487 or visit NorthernVermont.edu/events.

October 1 Fellowship Deadline

VERMONT STUDIO CENTER
Fellowship Application Deadline—October 1, 2019

The Vermont Studio Center offers 2- to 12-week studio residencies year-round, hosting more than 50 visual artists and writers each month from across the country and around the world. VSC´s unique residency format also provides a monthly roster of distinguished visiting artists and writers who offer slide talks/readings and optional individual studio visits/manuscript conferences.

VSC has dedicated studios for 2D artists, 3D artists, and writers/translators, and also offer facilities for printmaking, ceramics, traditional craft media, and darkroom photography. All VSC residents receive a private studio space appropriate to their medium; a modest, comfortable private room in shared housing; and all meals daily.

The full cost of a 4-week residency at VSC is $4,250. Fellowship awards cover the full cost of attendance (and may also include a stipend for travel/materials—see specific awards and eligibility for details). Accepted applicants who do not receive a fellowship award are eligible for financial aid to help offset the cost of attendance; grant and aid packages are based on a combination of merit and need, and generally reduce the cost of attendance by 20 to 50 percent.

Program participants have absolutely no requirements or obligations while in residence. However, many choose to participate in optional weekly resident slide talk and reading nights. These opportunities are informal, supportive, non-competitive opportunities to share work and ideas with the wider resident community.

Applications are accepted online at vsc.slideroom.com or go to https://vermontstudiocenter.org/fellowships

The application fee is $25 (certain special fellowship awards waive this fee with proof of eligibility—see application for more information). Writers must submit manuscripts in PDF format. Visual artists can submit in a variety of popular file formats for images, videos, and sound files. SlideRoom manages this aspect of the application and provides clear instruction regarding file types, sizes, etc. Visual artists should upload their files in the sequence they would like them to be viewed, with the five (5) strongest images first. All fellowship applications are juried blind by outside professionals in the fields of visual arts and literature. Admission is competitive and portfolio-based, and fellowship awardees are determined via the recommendation of a panel of VSC's distinguished Visiting Artists/Writers Fellowship jurors.

ArtisTree's Music Theatre Festival Presents: TINTYPES

ArtisTree's Music Theatre Festival Presents: TINTYPES

Sept 19-22; Sept 25-29; Oct 2-5 (2pm, 3pm & 7:30pm show times varying by day)

Tintypes chronicles the growing pains of a nation in a musical revue that takes the audience back to turn of the century America, when the innocent, slower-paced days of ice cream socials and hoop skirts are giving way to a bustling world of automobiles, electricity and the telephone, where American optimism and ingenuity run high in leaders like J.P. Morgan, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. It is also a time of growing social turmoil, as increased immigration begins to change the cultural and ethnic makeup of the nation.

TINTYPES is a tune-filled musical melting pot; the ‘Great American Songbook’ come to life. It offers a snapshot of America in its last Age of Innocence. This Tony-nominated, nostalgic, musical revue takes us back to turn of the century America and is a brew of popular songs from 1890 to 1917. It's the era of Charlie Chaplin and Teddy Roosevelt. Featuring a long list of great American tunes: “Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight,” “Meet Me In St. Louis,” “Yankee Doodle Boy,” and “You're a Grand Old Flag” this American musical revue is sure to be a hit for the entire family.

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.

BCA Exhibitions are funded in part by a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and Vermont Arts Council. With support from Farrell Distributing and Sugarsnap Catering.

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.

Contemporary American Regionalism: Vermont Perspectives

Opening Reception: August 17 from 4-6 p.m.
Exhibition on view: August 17-October 20, 2019
Guest Curator: Ric Kasini Kadour

Monoprints of yarn balls, lush fantastical landscapes, and deep, colorful abstracts: These are just some of the art viewers will encounter in this exhibition. But far from being a simple exhibition of Vermont art or Vermont artists, curator Ric Kasini Kadour invites the viewer to consider art from a regionalist perspective and how doing so impacts the viewer’s experience of art. Using the Southern Vermont Arts Center’s permanent collection as a point of departure, this exhibition will be an opportunity to consider contemporary American regionalism and the role art plays in society. A series of talks and a printed catalog will further elaborate on these themes.

Featured artists: Carol MacDonald, David Brewster, Denis Versweyveld, Dianne Schullenberger, Gabriel Tempesta, Galen Cheney, James Secor, JoAnne Carson, Judith Rey, Wendy Copp and Wylie Garcia.

Visual Splendor of Northern India. Photographs by Amy Davenport

Visual Splendor of Northern India. Photographs by Amy Davenport

n November of 2018, Amy Davenport traveled for the first time in northern India, specifically to what is known as “the golden triangle” formed by Dehli, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Jaipur. I was told that India would overwhelm my senses, but even so I was not prepared for the visual splendor I found there. The colors were dazzling. The architecture was unlike anything
I had ever seen or experienced before. Attempting to capture as much of that beauty as I could with my camera quickly became an obsession. I was fascinated by the history – the
Mughal Emperors in Dehli and Agra, and the Maharajas in Rajasthan who built such stunning palaces, forts, mosques and tombs. For centuries, Muslims and Hindi were able to live peacefully in the Mughal Empire. Religious tolerance was considered a virtue. Within certain parameters, the art forms of the two cultures borrowed from one another, thereby enriching the beauty that each produced.

My photographs are divided into four groups: Architecture, the Taj Mahal, Women of India and a broad category I simply call Street Life. The captions shown with each group share more detailed information including location and what I observed and experienced. These photographs were taken with either my Panasonic Lumix or my 8s Plus iPhone. Had I known, or even imagined, the visual experience that was about to overwhelm me, I would have ignored the urge to pack light and included my Nikon…but hindsight is 20/20. I am, at best, an amateur photographer – someone who has always loved taking photographs but had no time to get serious about it until I retired from a 35-year career in the law.

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.
