Music and sound fill space, inspire the mind, and articulate emotion without any words or physical form. Taking cues from musical history and artists who use music and sound to shape their pieces, students will first build sculptural instruments before composing original pieces and finally making three dimensional artworks enhanced with sound.

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.

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.

Enjoy summer evenings with Vermont authors in an intimate setting. Make a night of it; stop by the café for dinner or drinks, or come from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm for a garden party on the patio or in the gallery, featuring local food and drink pairings.
After sailing to California as a common seaman and writing his account of the voyage, Two Years Before the Mast, Richard Henry Dana could not forget the brutal floggings he had witnessed aboard ship or the vow he had made to combat injustice. Jeffrey Amestoy, former Vermont Attorney General and Chief Justice of the Vermont Supreme Court, tells the story of Dana’s unflagging determination to keep that vow in the face of 19th-century America’s most exclusive establishment: the Boston society into which he had been born and bred. Identified as “the first full-length biography of Dana in more than half a century,” Wes Davis, editor of An Anthology of Modern Irish Poetry, notes that the account “reintroduces readers to one of America’s most zealous defenders of freedom and human dignity,” a “richly detailed biography of Richard Henry Dana and a snapshot of American life at the end of the age of sail.” Carol Bundy of the Wall Street Journal notes, Amestoy “Excellently reveals how Dana wrested from the text of the U.S. Constitution the acknowledgment that the African-American slave, a kind of property as far as the traditional reading went, also had rights.”
Registration is $12 per lecture or $70 for the entire seven lecture series.
