Glen Coburn Hutcheson presents LEFT at Local 64.
“I aim for straight but often hit squiggly” is no trick of a left hand at play with paint and pencil. In fact memory and experience on his surfaces collude in extended strokes of color like a sonic algorithm that link sky to earth, trees to form, movement to resolve.
"I don't believe in a break between de Kooning, Morisot, and Rembrandt. Ideas and traditions continue like the branches of a tree growing alongside each other. So Cubism isn't over, nor is Dutch Realism."

Hand-carved texts on Vermont curly maple in writing whose very letters face extinction. The crafted carvings, of Vermont writer/artist Tim Brookes, bring together elements of calligraphy, woodwork, linguistics, anthropology and human rights to address a question that is rarely asked, but directly affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide: what happens when a culture loses its alphabet?

Paintings, Drawings and Collage by AXEL STOHLBERG
“I am constantly fascinated by what I see around me. I do not try to duplicate what I see, but make my own interpretation.”
“When people ask me, What kind of art do you make? I answer, I do everything. From painting, drawing, sculpture and assemblage, using all kinds of mediums, I am able to move between the lines of recognizable and abstract images, and feel the freedom to go in all kinds of different directions.”
Axel lives in Montpelier, VT and exhibits extensively throughout Maine and Vermont.

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, email@example.com or visit www.twwoodgallery.org
