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.

Exploring Water - Group Exhibition

Exploring Water - Group Exhibition

Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center
122 Hourglass Drive • Stowe, Vermont • 802.760.4634

On view at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center: June - August 31, 2019
Opening reception: Friday, July 26, 2019 • 5:00 - 6:30pm • A Stowe Arts Week 2019 Event

The gallery at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center launches a group exhibition up on the mountain in Stowe for the Summer Season. The exhibition opens with a dynamic collection - including photography, sculpture, cyanotypes, painting, video installation, window installation and mixed media. The exhibition is created by Kelly Holt, Spruce Peak Arts Curator, and features the work of artists: Mary Admasian, Kate Burnim, Renée Greenlee and Erika Senft Miller.

There will be a reception for this exhibition on Friday, July 26th from 5:00 - 6:30pm, during Stowe Arts Festival week and gallery walkabout.

Artists are responding to the following statement:

Water is never truly idle. It is life giving to all beings - essential in its purest form. It connects us as a planet in our global community and is inside of every human body - regardless of ethnicity, gender, race or religion. Water invigorates, yet soothes.The vastness of water welcomes and anoints, propels, generates power, and is increasingly precious as we respond to climate change. Water moves us forward as we paddle past each other without a glance. Immerse yourself and experience water through all senses. While water is a medium of consciousness, like AIR it also transcends culture.

Artists in this exhibition are responding to many aspects of water - from its physical forms to its important role in the ecosystem to its personal effect on our everyday lives and stories and well-being. Photographs by Erika Senft Miller depict ever-changing landscape of arctic glaciers “ice that holds information” suffering the impact of climate change. Through series of photographs, the artist shows how through the collective unconscious, we “all swim in the same story”. Senft Miller takes the audience on a multi-sensory video adventure from snowmaking alongside the gondola at Mt. Mansfield to the surface of a paddle board to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Mary Admasian’s mixed media pieces open a dialogue in an effort to “symbolize the emotional, phycological and physical experiences living in toxic environments” about the peril of plastics in waterways and ocean life with continued pollution in her series Peering Through Plastic. Traces of the ever-familiar six pack packaging of cans are found in the layers of her mixed media paintings. Kate Burnim’s addition of industrial paintings reveal a landscape of hydro electric plants. Her work speaks to “harnessing the massive power of water as we direct the river…creating energy while changing landscape and habitat through incredible feats of engineering” and what it means to claim power over the environment rather than with it. Renée Greenlee brings us home to Vermont with her delicate photographic studies titled Red Rocks Series on the edge of Lake Champlain. This personal journey is about healing “the way forward is unclear, as if walking through a fog”. Greenlee is also exhibiting a series of cyanotypes created on the shores of Lake Champlain - her process with treated paper, freezing temperatures and brilliant sunlight brings forth “a chaotic kaleidoscope of blues with sand, ice and debris…hand on the landscape”.

Judy Collins

Judy Collins

Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. In the 1960s, she evoked both the idealism and steely determination of a generation united against social and environmental injustices. Five decades later, her luminescent presence shines brightly as new generations bask in the glow of her iconic 50-album body of work, and heed inspiration from her spiritual discipline to thrive in the music industry for half a century.

The award-winning singer-songwriter is esteemed for her imaginative interpretations of traditional and contemporary folk standards and her own poetically poignant original compositions. Few singers have the staying power of folk icon, Judy Collins. For nearly 45 illustrious years, her dulcet tones have graced our ears, and her poetic lyrics have galvanized a generation. She has released more than 40 albums, has had numerous Top 10 hits, Grammy nominations and gold and platinum selling albums.

Judy Collins is as creatively vigorous as ever, writing, touring worldwide, and nurturing fresh talent. She is a modern day Renaissance woman who is also an accomplished painter, filmmaker, record label head, musical mentor, and an in-demand keynote speaker for mental health and suicide prevention. Judy Collins continues to create music of hope and healing that lights up the world and speaks to the heart.

Constellations

Constellations

Physicist Marianne meets beekeeper Roland at a party. They go for a drink … or perhaps they don’t. Marianne’s engaged … or perhaps Roland is married. Or maybe they’re both single. Nick Payne’s smash Broadway hit play (in which Jake Gyllenhaal played Roland) takes this chance encounter between two lost souls and opens the door to the infinite possibilities of their relationship. Breathlessly navigating through the spellbinding and romantic journey of being in love, Constellations looks at how the tiniest change in the detail of our lives can lead us on completely different paths.

“This play shimmers with the concentration of two actors working together to keep each moment fresh and new.” – Seven Days

Tickets start at $20, Seniors 20% off, Students $10.

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.

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.

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.

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.
