Gerald Auten: Graphite Insomnia

Gerald Auten: Graphite Insomnia Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Gerald Auten uses powdered graphite or graphite pencils on dense, smooth hot-pressed paper or onto the back of old museum posters and postcards. To the powdered graphite, he adds a bonding element, WD40, turpentine, or linseed oil, often buffing the surface. The work takes many months to achieve the dense metallic, oily surfaces. The affect is luminous, deeply saturated, mysterious and mischievous.

Growing Food, Growing Farmers

Growing Food, Growing Farmers Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Four years ago, Vermont Folklife Center researchers Greg Sharrow and Andy Kolovos began fieldwork to explore the grass-roots food movement in Vermont. Sharrow described his early meetings with farmers in the Rutland area as revealing “the spokes on a wheel”, with the hub located at Boardman Hill Farm, where Greg and Gay Cox have lived and farmed for more than three decades.

Growing Food, Growing Farmers is an intimate look at the expanding community of young farmers in Rutland County and the surrounding area. The exhibit showcases farmers, often with  their families, through large-format photographic portraits by Macaulay Lerman. Sharrow’s metaphor of the “wheel,”a central theme of the exhibit, is conveyed in the form of biographies and audio interview excerpts that complement the portraits of more than a dozen current and former farmers, many of whom trace some aspect of their agricultural trajectory to the Cox’s mentorship and generosity.

Growing Food, Growing Farmers is the product of an ethnographic research approach: making visible the experiences of one community of farmers that exists within the larger network of local food production in Vermont.

OPENING RECEPTION: On September 7, 2018 from 5:00-7:00 PM, the Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury, VT will host a public reception and gallery talk. Complimentary locally sourced food and drink, including beer, wine, craft cheeses, produce and more will be served.

Time: 8/21/18 10:00am - 12/31/18 5:00pm

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies
Description:

October 30, 2018 – June 1, 2019
The T.W. Wood Gallery announces an exhibit of Thomas Waterman Wood’s Master Copies.
Wood painted portraits across the US and Canada which lead to a European trip in 1858. Following fashion, Wood copied paintings in Europe to learn from the masters; such as Rembrandt and Turner. Wood made three additional trips and brought these paintings back to Vermont. In 19th Century Montpelier, these paintings were akin to an art history textbook, as many Americans wouldn’t have had access to European paintings. We invite you to visit the gallery, see these paintings’ scope, and explore how they differ from the originals.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12:00-4:00 pm and by appointment. The Gallery is located at 46 Barre Street at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, VT. For more information contact the Gallery’s Director Ginny Callan at 802-262-6035, info@twwoodgallery.org or visit www.twwoodgallery.org
