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.

Mid-Week Movie: The Summer of Walter Hacks

Mid-Week Movie: The Summer of Walter Hacks

Vermont filmmakers and their work are in focus this July with weekly screenings at Highland Center for the Arts. A series of five locally-made films will be introduced by each filmmaker and followed by an audience Q & A session. At just $5/person each week, it’s a great deal for an engaging night out.

Walter and older brother Clifford live with their troubled father on a hillside Vermont farm at the end of a dirt road. In the 1950s, every country boy’s summer was supposed to be idyllic – but eleven-year-old Walter is forced to grow up fast after a tragedy takes place.

Tickets are $5, kids 12 and under are free.

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.

Vermont Authors Lecture Series: Meg Ostrum

Vermont Authors Lecture Series: Meg Ostrum

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.
In her book The Surgeon and the Shepherd, Meg Ostrum weaves an unusual blend of spy tale, social history, and biography, museum professional. She chronicles Dr. Charles Schepens’ remarkable career masquerading as double agent Jacques Perot, leader of a top secret Belgian resistance escape route in the Pyrenees during WWII and credited with saving many lives. A week before he died in 2006, Dr. Schepens received the Legion d’Honneur award from the French government. A Vermont-based arts consultant who worked in the heritage preservation field for more than 25 years, Ostrum has edited several documentary studies and collections of oral histories. In writing her book, Ostrum conducted oral history interviews with Schepens and dozens of people throughout France and Belgium who had been participants or witnesses, bringing new attention to the quiet heroism of Dr. Schepens and his co-conspirators.
Registration for this lecture is $12.
