'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.

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.

Mountain Air Exhibition

Mountain Air Exhibition

The gallery at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center features a group exhibition in celebration of the mountain landscape for the Fall Season. The exhibition opens in collaboration with Stowe Mountain Film Festival, presented by Acabay, in partnership with the VT Ski & Snowboard Museum, on October 25th and October 26th. The collection includes painting, sculpture and photography. The exhibition is created by Kelly Holt, Spruce Peak Arts Curator, and features the work of Vermont artists: Arista Alanis, Mary Brevda, Rory Jackson, Joseph Salerno and Homer Wells.
There will be an exhibition reception on Friday, October 26th from 5:00 - 6:30pm, on the opening night of Stowe Mountain Film Festival.

Artists are responding to physicality of mountains, from our local Green Mountain ridgelines to the awe-inspiring mountains of Patagonia. Working in varied mediums, the pieces capture essence of the landscape - often emotional, spiritual and studied.

Painter Rory Jackson divides his time between the coastal region of Cape Three Points in Ghana and Lincoln Gap, Vermont. Of his oils in the exhibit on both linen and canvas, He writes:

As a Vermonter, the Mountain air has a sensory effect like none other, it is home. It is the clean breath that sweeps through the lungs of the hillside. It carries in it all the pollen and scents of the flowering, sprouting and decaying plants, and still maintains always to remain fresh In constancy the Mountains evoke an awe in their bold presence and unconquerable royalty, as the air sings of that awe as it moves in their midst. - Rory Jackson

Both Ridgeline Series and Woods Edge Series by plein air painter Joseph Salerno are featured in the exhibition - presented as a horizontal vista of both intricate relationships of form and abstracted tones of light and dark, all celebrating favorite tree line settings near his home studio in Johnson, Vermont. Arista Alanis’ vibrant expressionistic paintings move back and forth between figurative landscape and abstraction. Of her oils and mixed media paintings, the artist explains, “The artwork is not about specific places, but about significant moments that ignite a feeling of being alive in the space.”

Partners in life, travel and art from Vermont to Patagonia, Mary Brevda (photographer) and Homer Wells (sculptor, painter, inventor), capture the landscape in complimentary ways with dynamic perspectives, dramatic lighting, and etched aluminum pieces. Both artists are largely self-taught and always experimenting.

For further information on the Mountain Air group exhibitions, please call the gallery at 802-760-4634, email Kelly Holt (kholt@sprucepeakarts.com), or visit SprucePeakArts.com.
