Women’s Suffrage Film - Suffragettes in the Silent Cinema

Women’s Suffrage Film - Suffragettes in the Silent Cinema

January 25 at 2:00 pm
Suffragettes in the Silent Cinema
No charge. Donations welcome.

Following the movement into the "modern age,” this documentary—which contains clips from a variety of silent films—is a time capsule from the dawn of women's suffrage as a mass movement. It looks at how the new medium of film was used for messaging by anti-suffragists and suffragists alike. Director, historian and novelist Kay Sloan will introduce the film via Skype; the discussion afterwards will be led by Jyotika Virdi, professor of Cinema Studies at the University of Windsor in Ontario.
Sponsored by the Bennington Branch of the American Association of University Women, and co-sponsored by the Bennington Free Library and the Bennington Performing Arts Center—Home of Oldcastle Theatre.

The Hirschfield International Film Series Presents: Varda by Agnès

The Hirschfield International Film Series Presents: Varda by Agnès

The Hirschfield International Film Series presents Varda by Agnès. In French and English with English subtitles.

Two showings: 3-5pm & 8-10pm

(Agnés Varda, France, 2019, 1h 55min) Free

Synopsis:

The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the director’s own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, Varda acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, shedding new light on her films, photography, and recent installation works while offering her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging. Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved—Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes—this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.

Artist Talk with Lisa Mackie

Artist Talk with Lisa Mackie

symbol of where the piece was printed. Lisa Mackie is a master printer who, working with one artist per session, serves as the consultant for whom artists can rely on to create a print within the most effective technique...and encourage the artist to process and complete a print that mimics, but does not necessarily replicate their artist project. Artists in the show include
Emily Mason, Wolf Kahn, Sol LeWitt, Grace Hartigan, Margo Humphrey.

Molsky’s Mountain Drifters features Bruce Molsky, a Grammy-nominated artist on fiddle, banjo, guitar and song. Molsky is also Berklee College of Music’s Visiting Scholar in the American Roots Program.

Spencer Lewis in Concert: Solo Guitar & Violin and Songs

Spencer Lewis in Concert: Solo Guitar & Violin and Songs

Spencer Lewis will perform a solo concert of guitar & violin instrumentals and songs inside the fine acoustics of the red brick building that is Congregation Ruach haMaqom on 168 Archibald St in Burlington, Vermont on January 25th. This is his first concert in Burlington since his FlynnSpace performance in 2007.

Lewis’ signature sound combines the precision of the acoustic guitar with the sustained elegance of the violin. On stage, the live-looping of guitar and violin overdubs allow him to move in unpredictable directions, often spontaneously, to mirror or eclipse the music from his internationally known 26 album catalog.

His reflective instrumental folk grooves once described as ‘somewhere between melancholia and celebration’ can be meditative or stirring as he employs an inimitable cross flat- picking technique that combines the Carter Family's 'church -lick', Mississippi John Hurt’s fluid finger-picking, and Ramblin’Jack Elliott's interpretive style, all of which are played in a variety of tunings.

The songs he sings are transcended from folk, folk-rock and old-time music with embedded reflections of loss, change, and spiritual optimism.

"The Drag: A Homosexual Comedy in Three Acts", by Mae West

"The Drag:  A Homosexual Comedy in Three Acts", by Mae West

Vermont Pride Theater presents a staged reading of "The Drag: A Homosexual Comedy in Three Acts", by Mae West. West, an early supporter of gay rights, considered her play to be a “comedy-drama of life”. Set in the repressed 1920s, it’s the riveting story of two love triangles which cross the lines of social and economic class and defy the sexual norms of the day. In its opening run in 1927 in NYC, the play was shut down after only 10 performances.

Tickets are available now, online www.chandler-arts.org or at the box office 802-728-9878.
-- Adults $22 in advance, $25 at the box office on the day of the show
-- Students $15 in advance, $18 at the box office on the day of the show
-- SNAP/3 Squares participants, $5 at the box office only
Student groups of 10 or more can purchase $8 tickets only by calling the box office in advance.

This is VPT’s ninth annual winter benefit, the proceeds this year going to Vermont CARES, which works throughout the state to prevent the spread of the HIV virus and to connect those with HIV/AIDS with culturally sensitive medical care providers.

The performance will be followed by a talkback, and then a complimentary reception.

Out of Sight... Out of Murder

Out of Sight... Out of Murder

The Valley Players will present Out of Sight, Out of Murder by Fred Carmichael, January 17-19, 24-26, and Jan. 31-Feb. 2. Shows on Fridays and Saturdays are at 7 pm, and Sundays at 4 pm. The Valley Players Theater is located at 4254 Main Street in Waitsfield.
Out of Sight, Out of Murder was the first play to receive the Valley Players' Vermont Playwright Award in 1983. In the play, author Peter Knight (Jesse Putnam, Warren) is grinding out a murder story in an old mansion in Vermont where another author was murdered years before. A weird electrical storm effects a cosmic snafu and his characters come to life. There's the lovely ingenue (Aimee Clement, Waitsfield), the trusty butler (Brent Adams, Warren), a feisty character woman (Ruth Ann Pattee, Fayston), a dauntless hero (Louis Bronson, Warren), a fascinating "other woman” (Rachel Natvig, Northfield), the always pregnant serving girl (Marci Robinson, Warren), and the wily lawyer (Sal Spinosa, Waitsfield) waiting for midnight to read the will. Peter loses control of his characters and there is a murder; the intended victim is Peter. Other murders follow and the culprit is among characters who, having also worked for other authors, know a great deal about the subject. Charlotte Robinson, Warren, is also in the cast. The play is directed by Doug Bergstein, Warren, and stage managed by Mikki Nucci, Waitsfield. Jasper Mayone, Waitsfield, is the light operator.
Tickets are on sale now and are available by going to valleyplayers.com, or by calling 802-583-1674.

The Art of Mindy Fisher

The Art of Mindy Fisher

Mindy Fisher grew up in a small town in New Hampshire where she took as many art classes as she possibly could, including attending courses at The River Gallery Art School in Brattleboro, VT. In 1998 she moved to Chicago to study Set Design at Columbia College. She stayed in Chicago and focused on painting, cartooning, and self taught herself animation. She also had the opportunity to teach youth cartooning and sewing at Right Brained Studio in Oak Park, IL. She now lives in Vermont and has moved her studio into the Exner Block in Bellows Falls Mindy has shown work in Chicago, IL, Cincinnati, OH, Rutland, VT, Lafayette, LA, Portland, OR, and Clifton Springs, NY and has sold work to collectors around the globe.

Artist Statement
Over the past decade I have been creating a series of paintings called “Ornaglyphs”. These surreal, gouache paintings feature a crazy cast of bird-like characters and a hieroglyphic non-language that is open to interpretation. The paintings started off as comic panels and have now morphed into clustered, layered abstract paintings. Each painting is a spontaneous experiment with color and shapes colliding. When people experience my work I want them to get lost and find new things.

No moment is too small — flying down the hill on a sled,skiing in fresh powder or snuggled by the fire with a favorite book — and he captures each one with bold, brilliant color, often in large scale, to capture each moment’s importance. Mark Barry paints happiness and celebrates the gift of time and his deep appreciation of life — and the viewer quickly realizes it is contagious.

Bread and Puppet Theatre -The Bad Bedsheet Existibility Show Part 1 at TW Wood Gallery

Bread and Puppet Theatre -The Bad Bedsheet Existibility Show Part 1 at TW Wood Gallery

The TW Wood gallery is pleased to present the work of Peter Schumann of Bread and Puppet Theater. This important show will be exhibited in both the Hallway and the Nuquist Gallery. The new exhibit features hundreds of new works, big and small, by Peter Schumann and his Bread and Puppet Theater. The exhibit will run from January 25th to February 20th, 2020. All shows are free and open to the public.

The Bread and Puppet Theater is a politically active puppet theater, founded by Peter Schumann in New York City in 1963 and based in Glover, Vermont since 1974.

The name Bread and Puppet is derived from the theater’s practice of sharing its sourdough rye with the audience, and from its central principle that art is as basic as bread. The Bread and Puppet Theater participates locally in parades and is active at many statehouse marches in Montpelier.

Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet’s director, was born in 1934 in Silesia. Schumann was a sculptor and dancer in Germany before moving to the United States in 1961. In 1963 he founded Bread and Puppet Theater and in 1970 moved to Vermont, eventually settling in the Northeast Kingdom in Glover where the company still performs outdoor circuses and pageants all summer long. For more information visit Bread and Puppet Theater at: https://breadandpuppet.org.

Reception: February 7th, 4:00 – 8:00pm - In Conjunction with Art Walk

5:00pm - Bread and Puppet Performance: The Bad Bedsheet Existibility Show Part 2

Peter Schumann will perform a Fiddle Rant and along with Bread and Puppet members and volunteers a Contastoria Performance for “The Bad Bedsheet Existibility Show Part 1” at the reception. There will be live music and singing and bread and aoli will be served at the end of the performance as is tradition.

Russet Resplendence

Russet Resplendence

Two artists sharing a passion of providing a glimpse of the majestic and stately natural world and the rural tranquility of old farms combine their work in this unique exhibition. Working in diabolically different mediums of wood and paper, their work is joined by the common thread of russet earth tones.

Barb Godwin is a fine artist working with pyrography - the art of applying burn marks on wood with a heated object. Godwin applies her designs to a smooth wood surface and engraves the image with a special heated “pen” utilizing the grain of the wood and various degrees of heat to develop subtle values and tones.

Roarke Sharlow is a fine art photographer known for digitally manipulating his images. Starting with a colored image, he first removes the color and then applies a sepia toning resulting in a subtle russet timbre with the depth of rich light and dark values.

Artists Reception Sunday – February 23, 2020 from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM.
