Where Would We Bee?
Featuring the work of Colleen Grout & Kim Grall.

Opening Reception: January 10, 2019, 5:30 to 7:00 pm

Exhibition Dates: January 7 - February 15, 2019

Where Would We Bee?

Without ART in our lives…
Without CREATIVE EXPRESSION…
Without NATURE and a Climate that sustains us…
Without FRIENDSHIP…
Without EACH OTHER…
Without BEES?

Where would we BEE brings together the art of encaustic painting and the crafting of gourds.
Colleen Grout and Kim Grall are united in their inspiration derived from nature and revel in the singular entity that connects their very different mediums…The Honeybee.

Colleen’s encaustic medium is predominately beeswax and Kim’s gourds depend heavily on Bees to pollinate the flowers that produce the variety of gourds she uses in her work.

WHERE WOULD WE BE WITHOUT BEES?

Colleen Grout
Colleen Grout earned her BA in Art Education from Salem State University and her MEd in Education from Antioch University. She has been working in Art Education since 1977, teaching first at the Landmark School in Beverly Massachusetts. Upon moving to Westminster Vermont with her husband and two small children in 1985 she began teaching in the WNESU District in Grafton, Bellows Falls, Westminster and currently at the Saxtons River Elementary School. She shares both her acrylic and encaustic art work each summer at the Diamond Cove Art Gallery in Portland Maine. Her open studio and encaustic work has been part of the annual Putney Craft Tour, which is the longest running craft tour in the country. She is pleased to share her new works at the Main Street Arts Gallery, having only shared the work of her students on many other occasions.

"I have been an art educator for the past 30 years passionately working to inspire children on their journey within art discovery. I spend each summer painting on the coast of Maine, primarily in acrylics. Five years ago I discovered the joy of working in Encaustics. I know melting hot bees wax and fusing it to the surface of the support brings back the child within me. The word Encaustic is taken from the Greek word “encaustikos” and it means, “to burn in.” The fun begins as I relinquish an element of control because the wax has a mind of its own. I love the luminous translucency, the thickness of the medium and the ability to add texture in so many forms. Encaustic painting techniques are described as early as the first century AD by Roman authors. It has enjoyed a renewal of popularity recently and I add myself to the list of artists who have discovered the transformative ability this medium has to offer. I wish for my work to capture a colorful moment in time and help acknowledge that everything in life is temporary."
Kim Grall
I am a multi media artist with a BFA in Studio Painting from the University of Utah. I work with many mediums in many disciplines as diverse as fiber, digital photography and printmaking as well as painting, drawing and collage. I bring my background in fine art to working with gourds grown on my property, indulging my fancy for found objects, needlework and carving. Presently I am a member of the Putney Craft Tour.

People often ask how I got started with gourds and I say serendipity played a major role. I was ordering my garden seeds one year and saw hard shell gourd seeds for sale, ordered some and got hooked. Most of my life I lived in the woods, but now living along the river in full sun, I can grow very large gourds as well as a variety of other sizes.

There are so many things I love about working with gourds; from the numerous objects you can make with them to the unlimited mediums you can apply to them. But mostly I love their long history with people. They are found on almost every continent and have benefited civilizations and cultures through the centuries. When working with a gourd I can’t help but feel that connection to another time, to another place and especially to our planet Earth.

Time: 1/7/18 9:00am - 2/15/18 3:00pm
