Ray Brown: Tumbling Toward the End

Ray Brown: Tumbling Toward the End

Ray Brown: Tumbling toward the End
The Front, 6 Barre St., Montpelier, VT
March 6-29, 2020; Opening Reception March 6, 4-7pm
Film Screening: "Portrait of an Artist", Sunday, March 22, 2:00 pm
Information at thefrontvt.com, info@thefrontvt.com, 802-552-0877
Fridays 4-7pm, Saturday and Sunday 11-5pm

Ray Brown: Tumbling toward the End, the first solo show presented at the Front, takes its title from the last collection of poems by Vermont poet David Budbill – a volume that, like Ray Brown's work, considers beauty together with imminent mortality, and what it means to have a fleeting present and a fickle body.
Brown, who has been a fixture of the Montpelier art scene for many years, has been a member of the Front since 2018. He is the first of our members to present a solo show as part of the gallery's new format, which will alternate between all-member group shows and solo shows every month, with openings on the first Friday of the month. As part of the exhibition, we will present a free screening of “Portrait of an Artist,” the feature length documentary film about Brown by filmmaker Nat Winthrop, on Sunday, March 22 at 2:00 at the gallery.
The works Ray Brown presents in this show are all from the past fifteen years, since a stroke at age sixty-five changed the way he paints – he learned to use his left arm instead of his right – as well as the way he thinks and uses his memory. Now at age seventy-nine, he is still inspired by the visible world, loosely basing compositions on the golden mean – a ratio of proportions often found in nature and widely used in renaissance painting. These works, many of which are being shown for the first time, cover a wide range of subject matter and styles, from still-lifes and flowers to large abstractions based on travels through Italy. Despite this diversity, Brown's dedication to composition and his creative use of color are what unite his work. When viewing multiple canvases together, you can see how the elements of composition in a still life or grouping of building structures evolve into abstraction as shapes lose recognition and stand on their own merit. He uses a strong and unusual sense of color to resolve dynamic relationships between flatness and depth in his work.
While many of Ray Brown's shows have presented viewers with a single complete body of work, this sampling of numerous styles gives a fresh perspective on the active life of a local artist who, as he approaches eighty this spring, has over sixty years of making art behind him. From a disciplined practice of painting every day comes work that feels fresh and vibrant. Though he is physically challenged and has an awareness of “tumbling toward the end,” Ray is able to be present in his work, without concern for the past or future. He’s able to paint exactly the way he wants to.

Runa

Runa

Celtic-American “super group” RUNA moves beyond Irish folk music into Americana and roots, offering a thrilling new take on tradition by interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of Jazz, Bluegrass, Flamenco and Blues. RUNA continues a traditional culture in a modern age. The backbone of its signature roots sound is created from the musical and geographical diversity of its individual band members, vocalist and step- dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Jake James of New York on the fiddle, and Caleb Edwards of Nashville on mandolin and vocals. Celebrating 10 years, RUNA’s creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk and earns them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.

Alash - CANCELED

Alash - CANCELED

This event has been canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis. For more information please contact the event organizer.

Presented by Young Tradition Vermont at BCA Center. $20 admission, Reservations and Info at mark.sustic@gmail.com

The musicians of Alash are Bady-Dorzhu Ondar, Ayan-ool Sam, and Ayan Shirizhik. All were trained in traditional Tuvan music since childhood, first learning from their families and later becoming students of master throat singers. They are masters of traditional Tuvan instruments as well as throat singing and are deeply committed to traditional Tuvan music and culture. The world-renowned group has a unique style that is fresh and new yet true to their roots.

Originally called Changy-Xaya, the group was formed at Kyzyl Arts College in 1999 and quickly became the resident traditional ensemble. At the same time, the young musicians were learning harmony, theory, staff notation and western classical music. They incorporated non-traditional elements and instruments that mesh well with the sound and feel of traditional Tuvan music. They use old instruments such as the murgu, limpi, and shoor (wind instruments) that are not frequently played in Tuva today, as well as distinctly western instruments such as the guitar and accordion. The outgrowth of this musical exploration is the ensemble Alash, which is named for the Alash River that flows through the musicians’ home region of Tuva. Kongar-ool Ondar was the first artistic director, and he played a key role in the development of the ensemble.

In 2004, Alash won first prize at the International Xöömei (throat singing) Symposium competition. In 2005, ensemble member Bady-Dorzhu Ondar was named the best male singer at the Üstüü-Xüree festival, and in 2006 he was named People’s Xöömeizhi (throat singer) of the Republic of Tuva, the youngest person ever to receive this prestigious award. At the 2008 International Xöömei Symposium, Bady-Dorzhu Ondar won the grand prize, while Ayan-ool Sam and Ayan Shirizhik won first and second prizes for individual throat singing. In 2009, Ayan Shirizhik was awarded the title “Distinguished Artist of Tuva.”

Alash has toured the United States every year since 2006, playing at a variety of venues and receiving much press attention for their unique musical talents. They also conduct workshops at schools and colleges to share their music and culture with American young people. In December 2008, December 2009 and December 2010, Alash toured with the legendary American group Béla Fleck and the Flecktones to promote the Flecktones’ Grammy winning album Jingle All the Way, which features Alash as guest artists.

Portraits of Resilience: Select Collaborative Projects from 2014-2019

Portraits of Resilience: Select Collaborative Projects from 2014-2019

Traci Molloy is an artist, collaborator, and social activist that creates figurative works of art on paper – primarily headshots – utilizing drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and digital processes. Her work, minimal in aesthetic, explores themes of adolescent culture, identity, and narrative in relation to gender, class, race, and violence. The pieces are actualized as a large, conceptually-related series. Molloy's goal as an artist is to make resiliency manifest in visual art. She is particularly curious about how humans process trauma and grief, what occurs emotionally and psychologically during the aftermath of violence, and our society's ability to recontextualize history to mask painful truths and nullify collective loss. Though the content of Molloy's work is often difficult, the finished pieces are celebratory, acknowledging the spirit and strength of the individuals she depicts.

THURGOOD

THURGOOD

Chandler is pleased to welcome New Repertory Theatre's Production of THURGOOD, by George Stevens, Jr., directed by Benny Sato Ambush, and featuring Johnny Lee Davenport.
​THURGOOD covers Justice Thurgood Marshall's impressive career as a lawyer, arguing such landmark cases as Brown v. Board of Education, and is a remarkable tribute to Marshall's enduring legacy as the first African-American to sit on the Supreme Court.

"Thurgood Marshall is the Civil Rights Movement's unsung hero. His nomination to the Supreme Court literally changed America. Looking to the future sometimes means revisiting the past. By doing this play, I hope to remind, maybe even forewarn people that the politics of our country and the laws governing our nation, based on the Constitution of the United States, apply to, and protect all Americans. Not just the rich, not just the privileged, and certainly not just the interests of certain individuals. THURGOOD gives us hope and the assurance that one man can make a difference!" ~ Actor Johnny Lee Davenport.

General admission $10, groups of 10 $6. Tickets at (802) 728-9878, or at the door.

Time After Time: The Artwork of Lauren Hakala

Time After Time: The Artwork of Lauren Hakala

TIME AFTER TIME: The Artwork of Lauren Hakala
Lauren Hakala on her process and practice of making art: "I have always been drawn to the beauty inherent in found and natural objects. My pockets and backpacks are always full of things I find lying on the ground or abandoned. I often find myself arranging natural materials according to a personal aesthetic. I am attracted to anything organic and am adamant about using materials over and over again, finding value in items that normally get discarded or disrespected.

I have dabbled in photography, card making, weaving, knitting, quilting, painting and collaging. But it was in teaching children to make recycled paper that I found my true calling. I love ripping paper into bits and soaking it, blending the fibers, and setting up the studio for my meditative practice. It has gotten me through many winters by the woodstove as I decompress from the demanding job of overseeing and teaching at a Montessori school.

I began my art practice by creating a piece a day. This daily ritual turned into month after month of panels. Eventually I assembled them into a personal calendar suspended from a branch in my hallway. Within these panels you can find the color of the day as it relates to the planets, numerology, special dates and celebrations, and morning intentions. That commitment of 15 minutes a day has enriched my awareness of the daily, monthly and yearly rhythms that shape my life.

All my panels fit in shoe boxes because when I was little, my pilot grandfather had a box of postcards that literally came from all over the world. I would pour over them, ordering and reordering them according to my dreams. It would take me weeks to find the same one again. Every time I held these photos it was like visiting with a friend from far away. When I was nine, we had to move and I never saw that faded pink box of postcards again. It has taken me decades to stop longing for them; I think that I make my art to fit into shoeboxes as a direct result of my longing. When I grow up, I will make my own shoebox collection to gift a grandchild some day."

Winter Exhibition: Love Letters

Winter Exhibition: Love Letters

Artists in this exhibition focus on love past, love lost, love hoped for, love lived in a way that both honors relationships and propels the power of love beyond two, beyond power structures, into a world where multiplicity and non hierarchical structure creates action and change on a larger scale. While love may start with individuals, these artists examine their love not subjugated nor confined by any preconceived ideals or prescribed structures, but love for itself as a verb, a noun, an emotion, and a driving force. Artists include:
Louise Bourgeois, Robert Buck, Molly Davies, Jim Dine, Tracey Emin, John Killacky & Eiko Otake & Brian Stevenson, and Jeroen Nelemans. Image: Unrequited Love 2, Jeroen Nelemans. Photo credit: Robert Chase Heishman

Reception: Friday, April 3, 4:00 – 8:00 pm – in Conjunction with Montpelier Art Walk.

Vermonters address injustice and explore truths through multiple artistic media.

Tell Me What’s Really Going On addresses social justice/injustice in the world through the works of multiple artists and media.

Artists include: John Douglas, Michael Kuk, Diane Gayer, Jessica Morrison, Caitlin La Dolce, Marie Davis, Joseph Gainza, Jen Berger, and Jean Cherouny.

Guest Curator: Jen Berger / At the Root

Exhibit: The Dames

Exhibit: The Dames

For many people, ancestral lineage organizations such as the Colonial Dames are a world apart. We might be intrigued by their celebration of family and colonial history, patriotic service, and shared values—or, alternately, made uncomfortable by perceptions of elitism surrounding their lineage-based membership. But who are these women—these Dames? This exhibit is a collection of oral history recordings and photographic portraits created by the Vermont Folklife Center featuring thirteen members of the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in the State of Vermont. The stories of these women bring to light life challenges met with grace and courage, opportunities embraced with pioneering spirit and preparedness, lives lived with a strong sense of purpose–and a coming to terms with aging.
