Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch
Description:

Catamount Arts is pleased to present Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch, an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper on view in the Fried Family Gallery from April 27-June 14, 2019. A wine and cheese reception will be held on Sunday, April 28 from 4-5:30 pm, with remarks by the artist at 5 pm. All are welcome to attend.

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch is an exhibition showcases the artist’s fascination with exploratory drawing as the basis for work that invokes a sense of touch. Using tape, fiber, fiberglass mesh, and hydrostone, she creates installations and stand-alone pieces that act both in collaboration and resistance to material. “All of my work is rooted in drawing,” Weisberg observes. It is her desire to establish sensory awareness of spatial relationships between the human body and material, one that is “dynamic, improvisational, and mutable.”

A native of Philadelphia, Debra Weisberg graduated from the Tyler School of Art and currently lives and works in the Boston area. Known both nationally and internationally for large installations and smaller works that explore drawing in physical terms, she has exhibited at the Paper Biennial in the Netherlands; the East Hampton Center for Contemporary Art in New York; and in numerous venues in the Boston area, including the Art Complex Museum, Boston Center for the Arts, Danforth Art, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Gallery Kayafas, Lesley University, and the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.

Time: 4/29/19 11:00am - 6/14/19 8:00pm
Location: Catamount Arts, Saint Johnsbury

Sunshine & Shadow by Ann Young

Sunshine & Shadow by Ann Young
Description:


April 29-July 10, 2019
Artist Reception Thursday, May 23, 5-7pm

Ann Young’s interest lies in realism, especially of people, fascinated by the almost limitless variations afforded by the human condition and the same basic emotions shared by humanity. Rather than light and dark in a literal sense, these paintings consider the good and bad sides of human nature. People rain down terror and destruction on one another and at the same time are loving and considerate. Young explains, “This collection tries to sort things out, the good and bad that resides in all people, including myself.”

Young was raised in Illinois and Nebraska but has lived her adult life in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. From her first job illustrating the varmints of the Nebraska plains, through her stint as an illustrator for The Center For Northern Studies, to her abstract closeups of pond vegetation and the shells of crustaceans, she has looked to nature for inspiration. She spent years in a fruitful career making miniature animal and figure porcelain figurines for the wholesale craft market. An interest in large wooden sculpture occupied several years culminating in large scale gallery installations, combining the large cedar sculptures with the miniature porcelain figures. Young now devotes all her time with studies of people, in portrait and social interactions, enjoying the exquisite hues and textures which oil on canvas allows.

Time: 4/29/19 9:00am - 7/10/19 11:59pm
Location: River Arts, Morrisville

Within Sight/With Insight

Within Sight/With Insight
Description:

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.

Time: 6/9/19 10:00am - 8/4/19 5:00pm
Location: West Branch Gallery and Sculpture Park, Stowe
