Studio of Archeo-virtual Spiritings

Studio of Archeo-virtual Spiritings

Greek artist Vasilis Zografos’ new body of paintings reveals the medium’s enduring relevance in today’s digital image culture by examining the tension between memorialization and design, commemoration and utility, reflection and affordance, in a series of oils on paper that draw upon an archaeological rather than a Modernist tradition.

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

'The View From Here' by Jennifer Hubbard

Reception & Artist Talk Thursday November 14, 5-7pm. Free admission and refreshments, cash bar.

Jennifer Hubbard’s oil paintings feature scenes from Lamoille and Orleans counties, and capture barns and agricultural subjects in the vivid illumination of late afternoon light. In some paintings, she tweaks her color palette to add a contemporary, surreal twist on traditional rural landscape painting. The resulting paintings merge realistic, recognizable scenes with a touch of painterly abstraction. Jennifer Hubbard grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, where she studied painting and drawing at the Mitchell School of Fine Arts, and Maryland Institute, College of Art. She moved to Vermont in 2009.

“My work has always been primarily focussed on portraiture. When I moved to Vermont, where the landscape is such a powerful influence on daily life, I decided to move my subjects outside, into the environment. I was interested in capturing the interaction between people and the outdoors, particularly as the seasons change.” Hubbard gradually started replacing figures with barns and other architectural elements. The resulting paintings bring to mind both Impressionism and Photorealism, and offer a contemporary perspective of the people and landscapes of Vermont.

National Theatre Live in HD: Frankenstein

National Theatre Live in HD: Frankenstein

Frankenstein
by Nick Dear, based on the novel by Mary Shelley

Captured live in 2011 from the National Theatre stage in London, this thrilling, sold-out production became an international sensation.

Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (Hamlet, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Elementary, Trainspotting) alternating between the roles of Victor Frankenstein and his creation. This performance features Benedict Cumberbatch as his creation, Creature.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the increasingly desperate and vengeful Creature determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.

Scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil, are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic tale.
