First Friday Openings; April 4, 2014

‘Manipulated, Altered, & Destroyed’

First Friday Opening Reception: Friday, April 4 from 5 – 9 pm

Artists have an innate talent to find new life in the discarded. These manipulated raw materials help us to examine our past, and start a dialog for the future. ”Manipulated, Altered, & Destroyed” explores America’s love affair with the automobile in the current exhibit this April at The Space Gallery. (work will be shown by Aaron Stein, John Brickels, W. David Powell, Ben Peberdy, and more!)

Show Duration: April 4 – 26

Open All Month Long! Wednesday – Saturday from 12 – 5pm

‘Telephone’

First Friday Reception: Friday, April 4 from 5 – 9 pm

Artists will be contacted to participate in a group artist version of the game ‘Telephone’. One artist will be approached to bring in work to The Soda Plant hallways and they will in turn invite another artist, and so on. The result will be a visual conversation about who is making work in Vermont, who they look to, and how their work interacts. The exhibit will close with a networking event for the artists to see the exhibit in full and meet the participants, who were only a phone call away.

Show Duration: Ongoing, closing reception TBA

Opening Reception: Friday, March 7 from 5 – 9 pm

There is a beautifully eerie quality of winter when there’s a fresh blanket of snow on the ground, and here in Vermont, we are in the thick of it. The pallet for ‘White Wash’ is clean, bright, and fresh with a side of the quiet, serene, and ghostly.
