Sage City Symphony to host jazz brunch May 18

Sage City Symphony to host jazz brunch May 18

On Saturday, May 18, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Sage City Symphony will host a Community Jazz Brunch at the Park-McCullough House Carriage Barn in North Bennington featuring live music by the Leo Yucht Jazz Combo. The menu will include a variety of brunch favorites, including quiches, smoked salmon, fruits, and pastries. Tickets for the brunch are $20 for adults, $10 for students, and free for kids ages 12 and under. Proceeds will benefit the Village School in North Bennington and the Kitchen Cupboard food pantry in Bennington. This event is made possible by the Fund for North Bennington and the Board of Sage City Symphony.

The Community Jazz Brunch is an appetizer for the symphony’s free spring concert the following day, Sunday, May 19, at 4 p.m., at Greenwall Auditorium in the VAPA Building at Bennington College, sponsored by People’s Bank. The program is built around the world premiere of “E,” a composition for jazz combo and orchestra by local-boy-made-good Leo Yucht, an up-and-coming jazz percussionist and composer now based out of NYC. This work was commissioned by Sage City Symphony as part of its mission to support new composers.

A graduate of MAUHS (ʼ13) and William Paterson University (ʼ17), Yucht has performed with some of the most acclaimed musicians in the world, including Jon Batiste, Aaron Goldberg, Harold Mabern, Pete Malinverni, and many more. He performs regularly in the New York metropolitan area with his band and also as a sideman with other world-renowned jazz artists. Yucht’s jazz quartet for this brunch and concert includes Bob Bruya on bass, Thomas Linger on keyboard, and Daniel Berkey on tenor saxophone.

Yucht’s composition, simply titled “E,” is dedicated to his wife, Ekin. “The piece is my tribute to her,” Yucht says. “She is a special person and I feel lucky that I get to write it for her.” He adapted his original melody for Sage City Symphony’s strings, a few wind instruments, and glockenspiel, which will accompany his four-piece jazz quartet. In describing his process, Yucht says, “Musically, I drew inspiration from many historical recordings of a similar nature; for example, Charlie Parker’s ‘Bird with Strings,’ ‘Clifford Brown with Strings,’ Wayne Shorter’s ‘Without a Net.’ I feel that the piece is dynamic. It is not simply ‘this’ or ‘that’; rather, it embodies a spectrum of moods and sounds.”

Also on the program is Symphony No. 7 in D minor by Antonín Dvořák, and “Fanfare,” a rousing brass piece written to precede the ballet “La Péri,” by Paul Dukas. (Dukas is perhaps best remembered for his orchestral work “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” which was notably used in Disney’s 1940 animated film “Fantasia.”)

Sage City Symphony (www.sagecitysymphony.org) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, registered in the State of Vermont, and relies entirely on generous donations, grants, and volunteer services from individuals, local foundations, businesses, and sponsors. Concerts are always free and open to all.

About Sage City Symphony
Led by music director Michael Finckel for the past 25 years, Sage City Symphony was founded in 1972 as a community and college orchestra with close ties to Bennington College. In addition to performing traditional classical repertoire as well as contemporary music, the symphony commissions and premieres new pieces each year. The symphony attracts a high caliber of dedicated amateur as well as professional musicians who travel from throughout Vermont, New York, and Massachusetts for weekly rehearsals during the concert season. Auditions are not required, and academic credit is available for Bennington College students who participate. Information about joining the symphony is available at www.sagecitysymphony.org/join.htm.

The Book of Help: Reading, Signing and Q&A with Best Selling Author, Megan Griswold

The Book of Help: Reading, Signing and Q&A with Best Selling Author, Megan Griswold

“In a world full of spiritual seekers, Megan Griswold is an undisputed All-Star.”
—Elizabeth Gilbert - #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Eat Pray Love

THE BOOK OF HELP is the story of one woman’s life-long quest for love, connection, and peace of mind: 15,000 hours, four decades, six continents, and 290 trial remedies. n THE BOOK OF HELP: A Memoir in Remedies (Rodale Books; $26.99; On-sale: January 22, 2019) Megan reports from the fringe, the alternative, from the backcountry to the front, in stories that trace her lifelong attempt to become a more loving, more awake, more durable person in an increasingly complex world.

Megan was born into a family who enthusiastically embraced the offerings of New Age California culture––at seven she asked Santa for her first mantra and by twelve she was taking weekend workshops on personal growth. But later, when her newly- wedded husband calls in the middle of the night to say he’s landed in jail, Megan must accept that her many certificates, degrees and licenses had not been the finish line she’d once imagined them to be, but instead the preliminary training for what would prove to be the wildest, most growth-insisting journey of her life. She encounters psychics, therapists, and tarot clairvoyants; camps everywhere from the deserts of Burning Man to remote encampments of the Chilean military; travels from interviews with Maasai schoolkids in Kenya to peak climbs in Wyoming. While some of her healing techniques borderline the extreme—she does a 21 day water fast, tries Ayahuasca, and becomes a doula to name a few—Megan acts as her own experimental guinea pig, fearlessly plunging into the world of alternative medicine as she endeavors to figure out what it means to be fully alive and have successful relationships.

Often hilarious and, at times, heartbreaking, THE BOOK OF HELP is an expedition through existential curiosity. Megan’s adventures offer a beacon for readers’ own paths as they too grapple with what it means to be a loving human in the world. By leading readers through layers of spiritual and holistic experiments and lesser understood methods of wellness, they feel equipped to embark on their own journey, and Megan, an ally to a reader’s unfolding. The memoir, while entertaining, offers serious insight into a niche spectrum of non-traditional healing and her memoir is a deep dive into this sphere—showing us what it taught her, and how we may make more intelligent use of these resources.

Presented in collaboration with the Yankee Book Store.

Pedrito Martínez and Alfredo Rodriguez Duo

Pedrito Martínez and Alfredo Rodriguez Duo

Two of Cuba’s greatest young musical masters will come together in an incendiary duo performance.

Pedrito Martínez (b. 1973) is the winner of the Thelonious Monk competition in percussion and Alfredo Rodriguez (b. 1985) has quickly emerged as one of the finest Cuban jazz pianists after being “discovered” by legendary producer Quincy Jones.

Martínez’ fame spread initially due to his work with the folkloric ensemble, Los Muñequitos de Matanzas, which led to work with Jane Bunnett’s Spirit of Havana in 1998.

Since then he has become one of the most highly regarded Afro-Cuban percussionists in the world. Pianist Rodriguez attended three music conservatories in Cuba, winning classical piano competitions in each.

After performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2016, he was invited by Quincy Jones to collaborate on a project that was presented at the Shanghai World Expo.

These two Grammy-nominated artists first worked together on Rodriquez’ 2012 release Invasion Parade.

Since that initial session they have had the rare arrangement of performing together as a duo, leaving audiences completely mesmerized by their fearless and virtuosic playing.

Alfredo Rodriguez: piano

Mamet - Oleanna

Mamet - Oleanna

The Rock River Players (RRP) offer four performances in May of David Mamet’s Oleanna. Written in 1992, inspired by the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill Senate hearings yet well before the #MeToo era, the succinct three-act play detonates the fury of sexual politics through a power struggle between a male college professor and a female student. Twenty-seven years later, the subject could not be more relevant.

Rock River Players present David Mamet's Oleanna

Rock River Players present David Mamet's Oleanna

WILLIAMSVILLE The Rock River Players (RRP) offer four performances in May of David Mamet’s Oleanna. Written in 1992, inspired by the Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill Senate hearings yet well before the #MeToo era, the succinct three-act play detonates the fury of sexual politics through a power struggle between a male college professor and a female student. Twenty-seven years later, the subject could not be more relevant.

According to director Bahman Mahdavi, “As with all great works of art, nothing is simple in this story. The characters are complex and flawed, sincere and manipulative. The playwright has been quoted as saying he wants to make his audience members choose as they squirm and hyperventilate over the onstage fireworks. The goal is ultimately to create debate and discussion.”

There is much in Oleanna that rings frighteningly true: a smug professor, enamored with his own oratory prowess, dismissive of a struggling student; students trying to shut down a class because the professor's reading list is "questionable,” and, most notably, a shift in the balance of power between the generations and the sexes, using language as their ammunition and tool for winning power over one and another.

Mahdavi explains, “For my directorial debut, I chose a play with only two characters depicting human conflicts and exploring how we act when we are put in a situation where we have no control. The play is not a code for some deeper feelings; it's not an elaborate attempt to say anything other than what it says. It’s primarily about language --its power, its limitations, and who controls it. David Mamet, one of the greatest American playwrights, has a clipped, precisely-crafted style of diction leaving no room for error nor improvisation. Like a classical music score where everything is in the execution.”

Oleanna features Jon Mack and Rebecca Musgrove. Dody Riggs assists, Miles Keefe is on lights.

Performances are May 17-18, 8pm, at the Williamsville Hall, Dover Road, Williamsville, VT and May 24-25, 8pm at the Hooker-Dunham Theatre, 139 Main St., Brattleboro. Tickets--$10, $8 for students and seniors--will be available at the door; order on line at williamsvillehall.com.

Rock River Players, a 501c3 non-profit theatre collaborative, grows on the inspiration and initiative of those who wish to see the lively arts thrive in the West River Valley.

Dorset Players Present OKLAHOMA!

Dorset Players Present OKLAHOMA!

The Dorset Players will bring down the curtain on their 91st anniversary season with Oklahoma!, considered one of the seminal musicals in Broadway history.  Performances will be at the Dorset Playhouse on May 17-18 and May 24-25 at 7:30 PM and on May 19 and 26 at 2 PM.

The first collaboration of legendary Lyricist Richard Rodgers and Librettist Oscar Hammerstein II, the show was a game-changer when it took Broadway by storm when it opened in 1943.  Memorable songs such as “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say We’re In Love,” and “Oklahoma!, rather than just providing filler, advanced the story of a cowboy, Curly, who falls for a farm girl, Laurey, against the backdrop of prairie life in the Indian Territory, circa 1907.
Over the past four months, Director Suzi Dorgeloh, Musical Director Tom Salmon and Choreographer Kelly Gaiotti, have marshaled a talented cast of 23 from 17 area towns in Vermont and New York.  Newcomer Josh Bond takes the lead as Curly, while Danielle Houston who last appeared with The Players in the 2014 production of Miracle on 34th Street, is Laurey. Dana Haley, who wowed audiences in The Players’ production I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, sashays in as Ado Annie - the girl “who cain’t say no.”  Two actors fresh from leading roles in The Players’ Witness for the Prosecution, are Joe Mozer, as Will Parker, who does his utmost to romance Ado Annie and Drew Davidson who portrays the tortured Jud Fry, who pines for Laurey and cannot have her.  Aunt Eller is played by Caren McVicker, who is also new to the Dorset stage.
The balance of the cast is peppered with new and familiar faces to Dorset audiences, including Christy Vogel, Richard Grip, Chris Restino, Billy Jamieson, Dan Silver, Errol Hill, Bill Cruikshank, Michael Gallagher, Lily Gallagher, Zachary Barnett, Bob Fogelgren, Sara Gregory, Maeve Keeton, Laura King, Lily Butler, Ginny Edinger, and Annie Nash.

Tickets can be purchased on-line at www.dorsetplayers.org, in person, or by calling (802) 867-5777. Oklahoma! is proudly sponsored by Above All Vermont, The Barn Restaurant, Errol L. Hill Painting, La Peche Lingerie, RK Miles, Southern Vermont Medical Center, Bob & Martha Schoenemann, Spivey, Lemonik Swenor, PC, and The Wilburton Inn.

The Dialects of Line, Color, and Texture Visual Discussion

The Dialects of Line, Color, and Texture Visual Discussion

Elizabeth Billings is a collaborative maker and ikat weaver who loves, and creates, public art. She describes her installations as “an investigation of wonder.” She lives and works in Tunbridge.

Frank Woods is primarily a painter. His landscapes and Kimono paintings are closely linked in their shared exploration of line, tone, texture and composition. “For me, drawing is the foundation upon which all of this rests.” Frank lives in Montpelier.

Elizabeth Fram is a multi-disciplinary artist, relying heavily upon her drawing practice to inform her textiles. “I apply the formal principles of line, form, and color, in tandem with the textural qualities inherent in textiles to explore image and surface, separately and together, celebrating each for the qualities it contributes to elevate the other.” Elizabeth lives in Waterbury.

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

Thomas Waterman Wood – The Master Copies

October 30, 2018 – June 1, 2019
The T.W. Wood Gallery announces an exhibit of Thomas Waterman Wood’s Master Copies.
Wood painted portraits across the US and Canada which lead to a European trip in 1858. Following fashion, Wood copied paintings in Europe to learn from the masters; such as Rembrandt and Turner. Wood made three additional trips and brought these paintings back to Vermont. In 19th Century Montpelier, these paintings were akin to an art history textbook, as many Americans wouldn’t have had access to European paintings. We invite you to visit the gallery, see these paintings’ scope, and explore how they differ from the originals.

Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12:00-4:00 pm and by appointment. The Gallery is located at 46 Barre Street at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, VT. For more information contact the Gallery’s Director Ginny Callan at 802-262-6035, info@twwoodgallery.org or visit www.twwoodgallery.org

Imperfect Societies

Imperfect Societies

Featuring film and photography, Imperfect Societies probes themes of history, trauma, and nationhood set within the trope of science fiction. In Icarus 13: The First Journey to the Sun, Kiluanji Kia Henda plunges viewers into parallel traditions at pivotal movements in Angolan history, from the politics of Marxism-Leninism to the practice of witchcraft, as told within sci-fi narratives of the Cold War. Henda employs a sense of humor and criticality in his videos and photography, which often investigates themes of identity, politics, and perceptions of post-colonialism and modernism in Africa. Vietnamese-born artist Tuan Andrew Nguyen’s work questions the individual’s relationship to history, nationhood, and cultural displacement. In Nguyen’s short film The Island, shot on the Malaysian island Pulau Bidong (once the largest and longest-operating refugee camp after the Vietnam War that also housed Nguyen and his family) we encounter a dystopian future focused on the last two people on earth.

Artist Reception: Friday, February 22, 5-8 p.m.

Imperfect Societies is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. Tuan Andrew Nguyen’s The Island courtesy for the artist and James Cohan, New York.

Rebecca Weisman: Skin Ego

Rebecca Weisman: Skin Ego

Artist Reception: Friday, February 22, 5-8 p.m.

Rebecca Weisman examines subconscious and psychological spaces of identity. The artist combines video, sound, sculpture, and photography to create a large-scale, immersive installation. Skin Ego is comprised of several narrative threads that weave a story about the body’s corporeal nature. A central component of Skin Ego is the large-scale, eight by twenty foot sculptural recreation of a beached whale that visitors can enter and explore. Incorporating film and performance within her surreal environment, the artist spins a mysterious narrative between the fisherman and whale that expresses the nature of our impermanence.

Project Vermont is a new series dedicated to experimentation by providing a setting for contemporary Vermont artists to push their artistic practice while creating new work. Presenting visual, performance, and interdisciplinary exploration from emerging to established artists, Project Vermont supports artists’ exploration of new ideas and challenges, enables innovation, and creates engagement between audience and artist.

Rebecca Weisman’s Skin Ego is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty

Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty

Barbara Zucker debut’s her new work, Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty, featuring several black-and-white paintings and an installation of acrylic abstractions inspired by the stylized hairstyles of Tang dynasty tomb figures. Zucker is fascinated by the complex ways in which hair has been used by cultures to convey class, status, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and power throughout the world. Since the 1990s, the artist has explored the subject of hair in her sculpture – how it is shaped, removed, or adorned. In Adorned: Hairstyles of an Ancient Dynasty, Zucker transforms seemingly abstract forms into ironic, often humorous, observations on gender and culture.

David Rohn: Watercolors

David Rohn: Watercolors

David Rohn was born in Chicago in 1934 and grew up in the small town of Ludington, along the shore of Lake Michigan. He graduated from the University of Michigan College of Architecture and Design and stepped into a creative life richly lived as cartoonist, puppeteer, printmaker, teacher and painter.

Running parallel to his explorations in abstract painting and printmaking, and during his tenure at Windham College in Putney, Vermont, in the mid-1960s and ’70s, David’s watercolor painting gave relief from the more formal demands and cultural mandates of artistic invention and novelty of non-figurative oil painting. The delicate washes and expansive passages of color represent liberation from an art world of expectation and judgement. His modest still-lifes are deceptively loose and easy, and we’re comforted by the associations we bring to his unassuming and familiar scenes.

In 1953, I was the kid who was good at drawing, actually one of three in eighth grade. I did airplanes. After hundreds of airplanes, then dozens of cartoons, I was introduced to looking at paintings. I began to learn about the language of visual art: not depiction, but the secret language—form, color, symmetry, rhythm. This felt fundamental.

I thought I might give it a go.

There are other secret languages in art, of course, including some I don’t quite grasp. Art, done well, Is a way of twanging the mind, and the mind is infinitely resonant. Who knows what’s coming next? For me it’s mainly the classical ideas of form/color/architecture, plus the paradox of 3-D on a 2-D surface that Cézanne calls attention to.

Working from observation offers an endless variety of visual situations, and has the bonus of requiring prolonged intimate contact with plain stuff—a jar, an apple. I begin by gathering in. I yield to it. Later, I play with what I have harvested, playing the dialogue between the parts.

Sometimes a dynamic equilibrium results—a perpetually self-charging energy source. That’s the goal.

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch

Catamount Arts is pleased to present Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch, an exhibition of sculpture and works on paper on view in the Fried Family Gallery from April 27-June 14, 2019. A wine and cheese reception will be held on Sunday, April 28 from 4-5:30 pm, with remarks by the artist at 5 pm. All are welcome to attend.

Debra Weisberg: Drawn to Touch is an exhibition showcases the artist’s fascination with exploratory drawing as the basis for work that invokes a sense of touch. Using tape, fiber, fiberglass mesh, and hydrostone, she creates installations and stand-alone pieces that act both in collaboration and resistance to material. “All of my work is rooted in drawing,” Weisberg observes. It is her desire to establish sensory awareness of spatial relationships between the human body and material, one that is “dynamic, improvisational, and mutable.”

A native of Philadelphia, Debra Weisberg graduated from the Tyler School of Art and currently lives and works in the Boston area. Known both nationally and internationally for large installations and smaller works that explore drawing in physical terms, she has exhibited at the Paper Biennial in the Netherlands; the East Hampton Center for Contemporary Art in New York; and in numerous venues in the Boston area, including the Art Complex Museum, Boston Center for the Arts, Danforth Art, the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Gallery Kayafas, Lesley University, and the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University.

Retrospective of Two Generations

Retrospective of Two Generations

Hallie Richards Monroe's stained glass work uses contemporary and traditional vitreous glass painting techniques, that are fired in a kiln and are fused to the surface of the glass. Sometimes she uses sand blasting and etching with hydrofluoric acid to effect the surface of the glass. Then the glass pieces are assembled into a stained glass panel, using cooper foil or lead came to hold all the puzzle pieces together. Hallie's passion of illustration gives me the desire to incorporate conceptual imagery and the beauty of nature into most of her artwork. She has been doing stained glass commissions for over 35 years.

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.

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

Scattered Geometry; The Ceramics of Jenny Swanson & Holly Walker

Jenny Swanson’s high-fire wall pieces, each one a unique microcosm, are inspired by the art of India, and by floating lotuses she was intrigued by during her residency in Shangyu, China. Also on view are her unglazed, low-fire sculptural vessels carbonized in saggars, in bottle and funnel-like forms. Swanson’s innovative work gracefully curves and undulates.

In contrast, Holly Walker’s terracotta forms are Shakeresque and utilitarian. Rolled coils of clay are glazed with bold colors that are playful, saturated, and luminous. Walker’s painterly designs are geometric, floral, and sometimes alphabetical. Walker’s colorfully patterned rectangular palettes and disc shapes are the foil to Jenny Swanson’s silky black and white ceramics.

Ebinger, Rodrigo Nava, Dan Snow, an outdoor installation featuring the evocative work of three contemporary artists on view across the Museum’s expansive campus, from May 1 through October 31, 2019. These captivating sculptures complement and amplify one another through their shared engagement with fire, wind, and earth – subjects of fascination since antiquity. Exploring themes ranging from the anatomy of wildlife, the buoyancy of inflated steel forms, to the relationship between site-specific stone structures within the natural environment, Ebinger, Nava, and Snow push the boundaries of their respective materials and processes, revealing new experimentation with these classical elements.

Malcolm Morley

Malcolm Morley

The Hall Art Foundation is pleased to announce an exhibition by British-born American artist Malcolm Morley at its galleries in Reading, Vermont. Hailed internationally as a pioneering figure of his generation, Morley was a founder of Super-Realism, which developed as a counterpoint to Pop Art in the 1960s. He is also remembered as an artist who deliberately broke away from the stylistic innovations which brought him this initial fame. Over a career spanning sixty years, Morley’s practice continually evolved, his paintings becoming ever more colorful, expressive and distinctive. This exhibition includes approximately 40 paintings, sculptures and works on paper created between 1964 and 2016 from the Hall and Hall Art Foundation collections. On view from 11 May through 1 December 2019. Appointments available 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., Sa–Su. $10 pp. First Friday of every month, 5–8 p.m., free without a guide.
