Drawing Studio Workshop
Learn To Draw – Improve Your Drawing
Saturdays, January 5 – February 23, 2019 9am to noon
Taraden Media Barn, 183 Park Street, N. Bennington, Vermont

This class will teach you to draw, if you don’t know how or help improve your drawing if you do. We’ll focus on fundamental techniques and methods, helping you develop solid skills that will work for any subject, any medium.

This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn to draw or to improve their drawing. Suitable for all levels of skill.

What you’ll learn in this workshop:

We’ll spend the first 4 weeks working with pencil on paper. Using fundamental methods, we’ll learn how to get our subjects on paper in correct proportion, scale and with correct spatial relationships. Gradually we’ll add shading techniques to show light, shade, shadow and form. In the process, you’ll learn the most important skill of all – the ability to really see your subject.

In the second half of the class, we’ll introduce other black & white media – charcoal, pen, white “charcoal” and toned papers. And we’ll introduce more complex and complicated subjects.

At the end of eight weeks, you will have learned fundamental methods and techniques – along with the ability to observe – that will help you draw any subject

Winter Group 2019
Description:

Jan. 12 – Feb. 24: Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts presents “Winter Group 2019,” an exhibition of new work by Josh Bernbaum, Bruce Campbell, Lyell Castonguay, Liz Chalfin, Jon Gregg, Emily Mason, Petria Mitchell, and other gallery artists.
Among the pieces introduced in “Winter Group 2019” are Bernbaum’s large, blown-glass vessels inspired by flowering cacti of the Southwest, and Campbell’s hand-operated steel and brass kinetic sculptures which let us orbit planets and stars on a tabletop. Castonguay creates a signature world of imagined avian beings as part of a larger distorted narrative, whereas Chalfin adroitly constructs her spaces by selectively eliminating or manipulating objects and surfaces. Gregg’s stylized and heavily impastoed figures float and march to an unknown pulse. We thrill to a feeling of experiencing color for the first time as Mason surprises us with her lyrical sensitivity and characteristic, innovative use of a brilliant palette. Mitchell leads us into a landscape defined by atmosphere, a secret place we all imagine we’ve visited, where night and day share a delicate balance.
New to MGFA is artist Pat Gerkin, whose richly patterned and textured encaustic and mixed-media sculptures and paintings suggest topographical or bioglogical themes.
Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.

Keep the Car Running

Keep the Car Running
Description:

Jonathan Schechner’s color photographs from the project For the Time Being explore the themes of home, belonging, isolation, and the various intersections of people and the environment. In his work, he is processing his own sense of not belonging where he lives. Jonathan moved to Vermont from Israel as a teenager in 2005 and still faces a lack of clarity as to what home is for him – and where it might be.

Kelly Burgess’ photographs from her book "Sing Me Back Home" were made on road trips across the United States between 2012-2018. Her work is an exploration of the external American landscape and an internal emotional landscape using image, text, irony, and repeating themes. She uses the road trip as a means of searching and the exploration of the cultural and social perception of loneliness. The photographs seat themselves within the context of the American road trip within photography and literature: a coming of age journey that is almost entirely male. "Sing Me Back Home" begins with the examination of a heartbreak and the ubiquitous nature of those emotions existing within the irony of isolating and creating her own world while simultaneously going out on the road to search for fulfillment.

Emily Bernard discusses Black is the Body

Emily Bernard discusses Black is the Body
Description:

Join us on Friday, February 22nd at 6:00 p.m. as Emily Bernard reads and discusses her book Black is the Body: Stories from My Grandmother's Time, My Mother's Time, and Mine.

An extraordinary, exquisitely written memoir (of sorts) that looks at race–in a fearless, penetrating, honest, true way–in twelve telltale, connected, deeply personal essays that explore, up-close, the complexities and paradoxes, the haunting memories and ambushing realities of growing up black in the South with a family name inherited from a white man, of getting a PhD from Yale, of marrying a white man from the North, of adopting two babies from Ethiopia, of teaching at a white college and living in America’s New England today.

Matthew Christian and Max Carmichael

Matthew Christian and Max Carmichael
Description:

Celtic musicians Matthew Christian and Max Carmichael perform Friday, Feb. 22 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 108 School St., Bennington. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $15
This driving Celtic folk duo features shimmering dance energy and tight, up-tempo instrumentals.
Vermont-raised fiddler Christian moved to Brooklyn in 2011 and quickly connected with New Jersey-based multi-instrumentalist and singer Carmichael. Their years of musical collaboration in the city’s traditional music scene have honed an intimate, conversational phrasing of traditional tunes and songs heralded by one contra dance booker as “a yearning reimagination” of ancestral music. Matthew and Max mix danceable high tempos, tight harmonies, and Max’s thoughtful ballads into a memorable evening.

Among the pieces introduced in “Winter Group 2019” are Bernbaum’s large, blown-glass vessels inspired by flowering cacti of the Southwest, and Campbell’s hand-operated steel and brass kinetic sculptures which let us orbit planets and stars on a tabletop. Castonguay creates a signature world of imagined avian beings as part of a larger distorted narrative, whereas Chalfin adroitly constructs her spaces by selectively eliminating or manipulating objects and surfaces. Gregg’s stylized and heavily impastoed figures float and march to an unknown pulse. We thrill to a feeling of experiencing color for the first time as Mason surprises us with her lyrical sensitivity and characteristic, innovative use of a brilliant palette. Mitchell leads us into a landscape defined by atmosphere, a secret place we all imagine we’ve visited, where night and day share a delicate balance.
New to MGFA is artist Pat Gerkin, whose richly patterned and textured encaustic and mixed-media sculptures and paintings suggest topographical or bioglogical themes.
