Awakenings - Current Work By Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin

Awakenings - Current Work By Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin

The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St in the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, Vermont is pleased to announce Awakenings; an exhibit featuring current work by Kate Longmaid and Tom Merwin. The T.W. Wood Gallery is honored to have their work at the gallery.

Through a contemporary approach to portraiture and still life, Kate Longmaid explores what is revealed in the intimate moments of seeing. Working in the alla prima tradition, she paints directly from life, seeking to capture a sense of immediacy, freshness, and depth in my paintings. With still life, Longmaid is drawn to subject matter that is ephemeral. Captured in fleeting moments, these paintings reflect on the transient nature and beauty of life.

Tom Merwin's painting process expresses a layering of symbol and spirituality, using nature as a doorway to the expression of existential concerns. Traveling the trails through the Kittatiny, Catskill and Green Mountains have been a continued influence and resource for Merwin. Exploring the waterfalls and sketching them on site with sumi ink and rice paper, or recreating the strata of a mountain or cliff face using layering of media, allows him to use the images as notes or tones and leave their literal meaning behind.

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture

Ice Shanties: Fishing, People & Culture
Photographs by Federico Pardo / Interviews Vermont Folklife Center
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.

Exhibit: The War of Ideas: Propaganda Posters from the Vermont Historical Society Collections

Exhibit: The War of Ideas: Propaganda Posters from the Vermont Historical Society Collections

Showcasing items from the Vermont Historical Society collections spanning the Civil War to World War II, visitors can examine how posters have been an important part of the wartime effort, for everything from recruitment to support on the homefront. In a pre-digital world, inspiring artwork and pithy phrases were a key way the United States government could boost patriotism and gain material support. Viewing these posters alongside each other allows you to see similarities and differences as that messaging evolved over a century.

History Center exhibits are open Monday-Friday & Second Saturdays, 9am-4pm. Admission is by donation.
