"STEPS TO RESILIENCE" SPECIAL EXHIBIT AND TOURS OF THE HISTORIC BARN HOUSE

"STEPS TO RESILIENCE" SPECIAL EXHIBIT AND TOURS OF THE HISTORIC BARN HOUSE
Description:

Join us on Saturdays, 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. for a guided tour of the historic Barn House. The Barn House is actually two historic buildings: a granary and a cow barn, both built sometime between the late 1700's and the early 1800's. Jackson Clemmons joined the two buildings together more than 20 years ago, while he was in his 70's.

Our Fall 2018 tours feature a very special exhibit:
Steps to Resilience: Intimate Portraits by Will Kasso Condry.

Considered the godfather of the Trenton art scene, Will Kasso Condry promotes and produces street art throughout the Northeast and the West Coast. His lived experiences, cultural heritage, and social issues inform the subject of his murals, paintings, and illustrations. Kasso's work centers on using mural arts as a vehicle for community-building, activism, beautification, and healing. For over 20 years, his public art initiatives and civic engagement have had profound impact by helping vulnerable and fractured communities come together to creatively problem solve issues that affect their neighborhoods and everyday lives. Kasso firmly believes in the power of art to inspire, empower, create dialogue, and improve lives.

The exhibit includes seven magnificent portraits of individuals who inspired Kasso in his former life in New Jersey and in his present life in Vermont. The portraits use oil and spray paint on canvas. Audio-recordings of Condry describing his inspiration behind of each the works and videos of Condry's process are also a part of this vibrant exhibit.

Admission: $10.00 Pre-registration is required. Sign up on the Eventbrite link!

Time: 9/22/18 10:00am - 10/27/18 11:30am
Location: 2122 Greenbush Road- The Historic Barn House at the Clemmons Family Farm, Charlotte

Avian Journey

Avian Journey
Description:

Throughout history, birds have played an important role as a source of inspiration for artists. An exhibit by Tapestry Artist, Neysa Russo, brings to light this rich history and the everyday experiences we all enjoy on our avian journeys.
Inspired by woven tapestries, Middle Eastern rugs, antique embroidery patterns and designs from ancient pottery and carving; from the Phoenix rising to the Guardians of the Holy Grail to the Tree of Life, birds have been used to decorate clothing and homes for thousands of years. Not merely decorative, but often used with symbolism and meaning; from the spiritual power of the eagle to the doves of peace. Fertility, protection, symbolic meanings vary, but one thread binds them all, throughout the ages and around the world, the bird is meaningful to every culture.

Time: 10/10/18 10:00am - 11/10/18 5:00pm
Location: Northeast Fiber Arts, Williston

Description:

New England Now, Shelburne Museum’s inaugural exhibition in a curated biennial series featuring contemporary artists organized around thematic subject matters, will be on view from September 15, 2018 through January 13, 2019.

New England Now challenges the notion of the Northeast’s long-accepted stereotype as stagnant and quaint, and instead plumbs its evolving identities and complex beauty. Building upon scholarship on the visual construction of the region, this exhibition explores the contemporary landscape, capturing the changing environment. From disintegrating historic buildings and disappearing “virgin” land, New England Now reveals our evolving landscape.
