Petria Mitchell: Light and Air

Petria Mitchell: Light and Air

Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Light and Air, an exhibition of new oil paintings by artist and gallery co-founder Petria Mitchell. The artist’s reception and opening is Saturday, August 3, 5-7 pm, and the show continues through September 22. An Artist Talk is scheduled for August 25, 5 pm.

Educated at an early age at The National Academy School of Design, New York, and The Vesper George School of Art, Boston, Mitchell has been actively involved with art making for over 50 years as a printmaker, engraver and painter. Mitchell serves or has been on numerous not-for profit boards, panels and committees. She co-founded Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts which will be celebrating its 5th anniversary by expanding its space and moving to its new upstairs space in the fall.

Mitchell’s paintings commence with small thumbnail sketches, quick emotional notations which become the foundation of her imagined landscapes. Tonal gradation and converging lines and forms dissolve into her signature elements of accumulating layers of atmosphere and mist. “Petria’s brushwork is wonderfully integrated into the light and darkness of her work. Her brushwork has an abstract quality to it that testifies to the authenticity of her work.” (Ric Campman, 2001)

BLACK and WHITE
Main Street Arts presents the artwork of Charmaine Wesley-Hartman & Terry Hartman
August 20 through September 24
Opening Reception: Thursday, August 29 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

BLACK and WHITE
Black and white are two opposites that attract each other’s company. Combining the two artists Charmaine and Terry, husband a wife, they bring out not only the extremes in life but the multiple shades of gray. The area of life where most of us exists. Splashes of color can add the sparkle and laughter this couple will exhibit to you in their paintings, original prints, drawings, prose, photographs, computer art, calligraphy and quilts.

Artists' Statements
Terry Hartman
The language of the visual arts is universal. It can speak to the social, economic, political, ethnic, and cultural issues of the past, present and future of humanity. It can unravel the simplest ideas or complicate them. It can bring clarity, truth and honesty to the viewer. It can also deceive or manipulate the mind. What is this fascination of the human condition over centuries to leave its trace on cave walls, earthworks, or street art?

Charmaine Wesley-Hartman
I am a semi-retired psychologist who has always appreciated abstract, contemporary and non-objective art. Whether it was Rothko, Pollock or any of the newer artists, I am drawn to the movements, values, and colors that spark my interest. I particularly like working with black and white acrylics and oil as a method of expressing my emotions and dreams. Even my quilts, which are hand-sewn, and machine top-stitched, represent my need to create using black and white. Of course, occasionally, a color or two will find their way onto my canvass and fabrics, but I always seem to return to the distinct black lines and the white spaces where grays can be found; just like in life.

ArtisTree's Music Theatre Festival Presents: TINTYPES

Sept 19-22; Sept 25-29; Oct 2-5 (2pm, 3pm & 7:30pm show times varying by day)

Tintypes chronicles the growing pains of a nation in a musical revue that takes the audience back to turn of the century America, when the innocent, slower-paced days of ice cream socials and hoop skirts are giving way to a bustling world of automobiles, electricity and the telephone, where American optimism and ingenuity run high in leaders like J.P. Morgan, Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. It is also a time of growing social turmoil, as increased immigration begins to change the cultural and ethnic makeup of the nation.

TINTYPES is a tune-filled musical melting pot; the ‘Great American Songbook’ come to life. It offers a snapshot of America in its last Age of Innocence. This Tony-nominated, nostalgic, musical revue takes us back to turn of the century America and is a brew of popular songs from 1890 to 1917. It's the era of Charlie Chaplin and Teddy Roosevelt. Featuring a long list of great American tunes: “Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight,” “Meet Me In St. Louis,” “Yankee Doodle Boy,” and “You're a Grand Old Flag” this American musical revue is sure to be a hit for the entire family.

Contemporary American Regionalism: Vermont Perspectives

Contemporary American Regionalism: Vermont Perspectives

Opening Reception: August 17 from 4-6 p.m.
Exhibition on view: August 17-October 20, 2019
Guest Curator: Ric Kasini Kadour

Monoprints of yarn balls, lush fantastical landscapes, and deep, colorful abstracts: These are just some of the art viewers will encounter in this exhibition. But far from being a simple exhibition of Vermont art or Vermont artists, curator Ric Kasini Kadour invites the viewer to consider art from a regionalist perspective and how doing so impacts the viewer’s experience of art. Using the Southern Vermont Arts Center’s permanent collection as a point of departure, this exhibition will be an opportunity to consider contemporary American regionalism and the role art plays in society. A series of talks and a printed catalog will further elaborate on these themes.

Featured artists: Carol MacDonald, David Brewster, Denis Versweyveld, Dianne Schullenberger, Gabriel Tempesta, Galen Cheney, James Secor, JoAnne Carson, Judith Rey, Wendy Copp and Wylie Garcia.

Looking Back, Moving Forward: Four Decades of Queer Activism in Vermont

Looking Back, Moving Forward: Four Decades of Queer Activism in Vermont

Vermont is widely regarded as one of the most queer-friendly states in America. In 2000, the state was the first in the nation to legalize civil unions for same-sex couples, and in 2009, Vermont became the first state to allow same-sex marriage by legislation rather than by court ruling.

But how did that come to pass? At least one important factor has been the tireless activism and advocacy carried out over decades by, and on behalf of, Vermont’s LGBTQ+ community. Presented in partnership with the AIDS Project of Southern Vermont and Out in the Open (formerly Green Mountain Crossroads) and sponsored by The Samara Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation, this event looks at the key individuals, organizations, and moments in the history of queer activism in southern Vermont from the 1980s to the present day.

This event is presented in conjunction with Performative Acts, a retrospective of work by the acclaimed photographer and activist Dona Ann McAdams. McAdams credits her friendship with civil rights icon Harvey Milk with inspiring her lifelong devotion to using photography for social change. The exhibit includes McAdams’ photographs of queer liberation and AIDS activism protests across several decades.

Miss Lynn's Rainbow Machine

Miss Lynn's Rainbow Machine

A Miss Lynn's Rainbow Machine performance is fun, engaging, and encourages singing along and movement. The songs are a mix of well known family friendly songs ("Shake Your Sillies Out", "Octopus's Garden", "You Are My Sunshine", for example), and Miss Lynn originals like "Animal Best Friends" and "Eat Your Greens". There are many opportunities for audience engagement, where kids are asked for help with lyrics and improvising parts of songs. This engages the kids even more, and it's always hilarious and amusing to hear the things they come up with! A child of the 80's, Miss Lynn's trinity of inspiration includes Mary Poppins, The Muppets, and Mr. Rogers. She tries to embody the whimsical sternness that commands respect from Mary Poppins, the humor of the Muppets, and the emotional connectivity of Mr. Rogers.

Workshop: Dream Journals

Workshop: Dream Journals

These workshops will be led by Angus McCullough, creator of the site-specific installation Coincidence Control, and Jonathan Gitelson, curator. Participants will be guided through the process of making simple books to use as dream journals.

At the first workshop (August 10), McCullough and Gitelson will share tips and tricks for remembering dreams, using them in waking life, incorporating them into the creative process, and perhaps even utilizing techniques for lucid dreaming. Stating one’s intentions in the dream journal increases the potential for activating these subconscious narratives.

At the second workshop (September 21), participants will reconvene to discuss their individual dream journaling processes (successful or not), and new participants will make their own journals.

Space is limited to 10 people for each workshop, and pre-registration is required. The two workshops can be taken as a series, or either workshop can be taken on its own. The workshop fee is by donation.

ADMISSION: $10 suggested donation; no one turned away for inability to pay
Ages 12 and up. Space is limited to 10 participants. Registration required.

Film: Blinded by the Light

Javed is a British teen of Pakistani descent growing up in 1987 England. Amidst the racial and economic turmoil of the times, he writes poetry as a means to escape the intolerance of his hometown and the inflexibility of his traditional father. But when a classmate introduces him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, Javed sees parallels to his working-class life in the powerful lyrics. As Javed discovers an outlet for his own pent-up dreams, he also begins to express himself in his own voice.

Petria Mitchell: Light and Air

Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Light and Air, an exhibition of new oil paintings by artist and gallery co-founder Petria Mitchell. The artist’s reception and opening is Saturday, August 3, 5-7 pm, and the show continues through September 22. An Artist Talk is scheduled for August 25, 5 pm.

Educated at an early age at The National Academy School of Design, New York, and The Vesper George School of Art, Boston, Mitchell has been actively involved with art making for over 50 years as a printmaker, engraver and painter. Mitchell serves or has been on numerous not-for profit boards, panels and committees. She co-founded Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts which will be celebrating its 5th anniversary by expanding its space and moving to its new upstairs space in the fall.

Mitchell’s paintings commence with small thumbnail sketches, quick emotional notations which become the foundation of her imagined landscapes. Tonal gradation and converging lines and forms dissolve into her signature elements of accumulating layers of atmosphere and mist. “Petria’s brushwork is wonderfully integrated into the light and darkness of her work. Her brushwork has an abstract quality to it that testifies to the authenticity of her work.” (Ric Campman, 2001)
