Mid-Week Movie: Wetware

Mid-Week Movie: Wetware

Vermont filmmakers and their work are in focus this July with weekly screenings at Highland Center for the Arts. A series of five locally-made films will be introduced by each filmmaker and followed by an audience Q & A session. At just $5/person each week, it’s a great deal for an engaging night out.

Genetic programmer Hal Briggs, driven by obsession, allows human qualities to linger in Jack and Kay, his prototypes. Then they escape. Briggs scrambles to track his fugitive prototypes, making a provocative discovery that will change everything, in this near-future noir.

Hallowed Ground Art Exhibit

Hallowed Ground Art Exhibit

Hallowed Ground pays tribute to the devotion of the faithful and its continuity from the Neolithic Erin to contemporary Ireland with a series of paintings, pastels, photographs, sculpture, and accompanying Irish poetry.
Artist Gaal Shepherd has spent 34 years exploring the nooks and crannies of the island searching for sacred prehistoric sites, which has taken her to some of the most remote and desolate places in Ireland.
The opening reception for this exhibit is June 14 at 5:00 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.

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.

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.

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.

Dusty Boynton: Reliefs

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.
