Gelli® Plate Monoprinting Class
Description:

We will use different sizes of Gelli® plates with acrylic paints and a variety of stencils, stamps, vegetation, household items, and whatever else we can find to create fun designs on paper and boxes. Bring along an old shirt or apron, any old gift boxes, anything that might make an interesting pattern, and your imagination. Preregistration is required and costs $50.

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE: Young Marx

NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE: Young Marx
Description:

National Theatre Live, the best of British theatre broadcast to cinemas around the world, presents the screening of Young Marx. It’s 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke and restless, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the town than Karl Heinrich Marx. Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for seniors and $8 for students.

JAGFest

JAGFest Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

JAG Productions is pleased to announce JAGFest 2.0, a weekend performing arts festival of new works all celebrating the talents of African-American playwrights and performing artists.

Presented February 9 – 11 at Briggs Opera House in White River Junction, VT. The weekend-long festival of play readings celebrates and explores diverse, new voices in American theater. JAGFest will include four staged readings over the course of three days, each featuring a post-show conversation with the playwrights, actors, directors and Dartmouth scholars.

Founder & Producing Artistic Director Jarvis Green says “I am beyond excited to amplify Black voices in the American theater by having JAGFest serve as an incubator for new works that are written, directed, and performed by Black theatre artists. Introducing residents and visitors of the Upper Valley to the newest voices in American theatre with a festival that brings attention to the Black experience in America, in my opinion, is very necessary. Our company sees itself as playing a key role in bringing diverse actors and stories to the stage and to the Upper Valley, one of the most racially homogeneous regions of the United States, via powerful art that are artfully staged.”

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Picasso at the Lapin Agile
Description:

Picasso at the Lapin Agile - The Perfect Fix for Winter Doldrums

Looking for a reason to come out of hibernation? Ready for an infusion of warm intellect with a provocative dose of humor? Wipe the winter gloom away, and come out to the Town Hall Theater February 8-11 to see the Middlebury Community Players' presentation of Picasso at the Lapin Agile.

Steve Martin's play, Picasso at the Lapin Agile, is a clever and humorous take on a chance meeting and witty repartee between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein. There will be a cash bar at each performance with a limited number of café table seats available. Tickets are $12 for opening night, Thursday, February 8 at 7:30pm, and $17 for all other shows Feb. 9-10 at 7:30pm and Feb. 11 at 2:00pm (plus $1 THT preservation fee on Feb. 8 and $2 fee Feb. 9-11). Tickets are on sale through the Town Hall Theater Box Office at townhalltheater.org, or in person at 68 South Pleasant Street, Middlebury (802-382-9222) Monday-Saturday, noon to 5:00pm, or at the door starting one hour before show times.

About the play... It is 1904, in Paris, France. The Lapin Agile (Nimble Rabbit), quaint watering hole to struggling artists and would-be geniuses, welcomes two soon-to-be legends for one extraordinary night. Picasso and Einstein, whose egos match their intellects, spar with the regulars and each other about art, science, inspiration, love, and the promise of the 20th century. Throw in a mysterious visitor who makes the ladies swoon, and you're in for a well-rounded theater experience.

Equally smart and silly, Picasso at the Lapin Agile asks serious questions about art, science, and genius while it cracks goofy jokes about history, romance, and how to bake a pie in the shape of the letter e. It was Steve Martin's first full-length play; at the debut reading in Martin's Beverly Hills home, Tom Hanks read the role of Picasso and Chris Sarandon read the role of Einstein. The 1995 production in New York City won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play.

More information is available at middleburycommunityplayers.org or on the MCP Facebook page.

Founded in 1959, the Middlebury Community Players present musicals, comedies, and dramas in and around Middlebury, Vermont, USA. The Players are an enthusiastic group of actors, directors, technicians, and production personnel from Addison County and beyond. The purpose of this organization is to further the interest of theater in Addison County, Vermont. If you have any questions about the show or MCP, please email info@middleburycommunityplayers.org.

Description:

Paul McCartney and John Lennon together again for one night only. This intimate play by Hollywood writer Bob Stevens (The Wonder Years, Murphy Brown, Malcolm In The Middle) brings to life a little known night when John and Paul were becoming the most famous young men on earth. Stranded in a hotel room in Key West, they do what many young men do when they’re bored–get drunk. They have some laughs, but as their talk turns serious, they bond over the revelation of traumatic childhood events they have in common and find inspiration for the music that changed our lives.

Advisory: Ages 12 and up.

The Book of Changes: Symbolic Landscapes of the I Ching

The Book of Changes: Symbolic Landscapes of the I Ching
Description:

ON VIEW DECEMBER 2 – FEBRUARY 18
OPENING RECEPTION: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5 FROM 4-6PM
64 works by Elizabeth Nelson inspired by the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching


Elizabeth Nelson is best known for her images of northeastern landscapes. Her work has been shown since the late 1980s and has been presented in juried shows for nearly as long. She is represented by galleries in New York and Vermont and has won commissions for public art. Neither a young nor obscure artist, one can believe her
when she says, “Every so often artists come to the end of what they’re exploring.” They have to ask, “Where do I go from here?” 2012 was one of those periods for Liz. She
wanted to transform her work.

In January 2012, she started a series of “Symbolic Landscapes” inspired by the sixty four hexagrams of the I Ching. Incorporating chance even into the procedure, She threw coins to choose a hexagram each time a painting was started and would contemplate the result as she thought or dreamt an image. Her work has always referenced the landscape of northern New England and this new series continued that exploration, but with an interior dimension of symbols and geometric juxtapositions.

A friend showed her the book in the mid 1960s. “The language about the symbols connected so closely to unconscious thoughts I had been having.” She wears divination loosely; there are times she refers to the method frequently and times she puts it aside for years. Liz describes her use as “something I have used in different ways for different questions and in different intensities.”

The discipline of such a project is “very freeing.” Describing the freedom inside of discipline, Liz makes this analogy: “If you’ve cooked a souffle, one that’s followed the rules, and have had some success, then you start changing things.” She applies that thought to painting: “You have to keep pushing the edges of your knowledge and capabilities to grow as an artist. “Completing one idea,” she explains, gives her the “confidence to do a riff on it. It’s a physical skill, among other things. You have to have confidence in your skills; you keep practicing.”

For the first time all 64 of these new paintings will be on exhibit.

Free and open to the public. For more information, please call (802) 533-9075 or visit www.HighlandArtsVT.org.

Up Home: Hand-Colored Photographs by Susanne and Neil Rappaport

Up Home: Hand-Colored Photographs by Susanne and Neil Rappaport
Description:

After Minnie Griswold passed away in 1952, her sons locked up their mother’s house in West Pawlet, Vermont and left all her belongings in place, unaltered. Thirty years later, Pawlet documentarians Susanne and Neil Rappaport would enter the home at the invitation of one of the brothers, Charlie, and go on to produce a collection of hand-colored photographs of Minnie’s home.

Today, nearly thirty years after Susanne and Neil entered the home, this rarely seen collection of over 45 hand-colored photographs comes to the Vermont Folklife Center as a new exhibition entitled, Up Home.

Elise Whittemore: One by One

Elise Whittemore: One by One
Description:

Elise Whittemore, BCA’s 2017 Barbara Smail award-winner, has made important contributions to the vibrancy and excellence of Vermont’s arts community as an artist and arts advocate. In her beautifully designed prints, Whittemore is drawn to the physical labor of art making and how it challenges her to pursue different ways hand and material can create meaning together. The artist’s use of pattern develops a narrative that explores the physicality of printmaking as well as formal constructs that are inherent to the natural world.

Free Admission. The Winter Exhibition also includes Dusty Boynton and Edwin Owre.

Time: 1/19/18 6:00pm - 4/7/18 8:00pm

Dusty Boynton: From Within

Dusty Boynton: From Within
Description:

Dusty Boynton merges past memory and personal experience to create works that are seemingly child-like in appearance but sophisticated in gesture and expression. Drawing from her inner subconscious world, the artist’s cast of characters rejects conventional representation and inhabit a fantastic world of their own. Boynton’s expressive brushstrokes, vibrant color palette, and supernatural imagery give her compositions a carefree and imaginative innocence. Dusty Boynton’s exhibition for BCA Center will feature large-scale paintings, monoprints, and reliefs created over the past decade.

Dusty is one of three artists featured in the winter exhibition. Edwin Owre and Elise Whittemore are also included.

Time: 1/19/18 6:00pm - 4/7/18 8:00pm

Edwin Owre: New Constructions

Edwin Owre: New Constructions
Description:

With an artistic career spanning more than five decades, artist and educator Edwin Owre works continuously in his Grand Isle studio creating new, colorful "constructions" that explore the possibilities of drawing and the gesture through abstract sculpture. Referencing the sensibilities of the formative American art movements of the 1960s and 70s, while embracing contemporary expressions of mark-making, Owre creates work that is exciting, immediate, and most importantly formative to a generation of Vermont-based contemporary artists working today.

Free Admission. The Winter Exhibition also includes Dusty Boynton and Elise Whittemore.

Time: 1/19/18 6:00pm - 4/7/18 8:00pm
