Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture
Photographs by Federico Pardo / Interviews Vermont Folklife Center
Opening Reception + Artist Talk, Friday, February 15th, 5-7PM
On display through Summer 2019

Ice Shanties is an exhibition about the structures, people and culture of ice fishing seen through the lens of Vermont-based Colombian photographer Federico Pardo. Pardo’s large format color photographs of ice shanties at “The Meadows” in Brattleboro, Vermont are paired with audio reflections from the shanty owners drawn from interviews by the Vermont Folklife Center.

While Pardo’s shanty portraits provide a window into the material culture of ice fishing, the shanty owner interviews are an opportunity to engage with the human side—the personal, familial and recreational culture—of this winter activity.

ABSTRACT VERMONT : Paintings, Drawings and Collage by AXEL STOHLBERG

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.

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

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
