Call to Artists: ‘Dark Matter’ A Juried October Exhibition

‘Dark Matter’

A Juried Dark Arts Exhibition at The Space Gallery

The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery is thrilled to host our annual ‘dark arts’ exhibition this October with ‘Dark Matter’, juried and curated by gallery director, Christy Mitchell. She relishes in the opportunity to get creepy with you!

‘Dark Matter’, in a scientific sense, has never been directly observed; however, its existence would explain a number of otherwise puzzling astronomical observations. We ask that you consider how existence and puzzling realities…and fantasies, play in to your own work and interpretation of the universe. In a psychological sense….what makes you think, makes you question, terrifies you…or others. Do you find beauty in death, in quiet alleys, and in the dark nights of your soul? Do you feel that we may be in the new ‘dark ages’ with regards to our environment or political climate?

Is your work just simply, beautifully, dark…with seriousness or humor?

Show us. We can’t wait to see.

Applications accepted now until midnight on September 30th, 2017, as we slither into October. Muwahahaha

Saturday Events

Matt Neckers –
The Vermont International Museum of Contemporary Art + Design is mobile miniature art museum located inside a 1960s era camper, and it includes hundreds of pieces of miniature artwork displayed in several galleries.

Matt Neckers, ‘Vermont International Mini-Contemporary Art Museum’

Jeff Howlett – 
Live Tintypes Booth, $50 a plate/tintype for Patrons of the Event
Introduced in the mid-19th century, each tintype photograph is individually created by coating, sensitizing, exposing and developing metal plate as the subject sits for the portrait session. Many Civil War era photographs were created with this historic technology, which provides a hauntingly beautiful and permanent image especially suitable for heirloom portraits of individuals, families, and bands.

August 2017 Exhibition: 86th Annual NVAA Member Show

NVAA: Northern Vermont Arts Association 
86th Annual Member Exhibition    

August 4 – 26, 2017

Opening Reception; First Friday Art Walk, August 4 from 5 – 9pm

‘Riders’ by Nancy J. Hayden, Current NVAA Member

The Northern Vermont Artist Association was founded right here in Burlington, VT in 1931 by Harold S. Knight and a group of Vermont artists in search of venues for their art. One of the first members of this new art organization was the renowned American painter, Maxfield Parrish.

‘Waterfall’ by Maxfield Parrish, shown during the first NVAA Member exhibition in 1931

From 1931 through 1972 the NVAA held its annual member show at the Robert Hull Fleming Museum at UVM. Exhibitions have since moved around Vermont in locations large enough for the membership. Over the last 86 years, many important Vermont artists have exhibited their work in one or more of these shows, including Francis Colburn, Ruth Mould, Stan Marc Wright, Emile Gruppe, Mary and Alden Bryan and Roy Kennedy.

‘First Light Cape Cod’, by Andy Brown, Current NVAA Member

Today, the NVAA offers its members the opportunity to show their work in many lovely locations, and for the second annual exhibition in August, here in the heart of the South End Arts District at The Space Gallery in Burlington.

July 2017 Exhibition – ‘Weirdo!’

Weirdo!

Too weird for Vermont, not weird enough for New York

Curated by Robert Waldo Brunelle and Blake Larsen

July 7 – 29, 2017


The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery prides itself on being an accessible space for artists and the viewing community to enjoy work that you will not often see anywhere else.

Kristin Richland and Dierdra Michelle

A collection of eleven varied and dedicated Vermont artists show work that allows them to push their own bounds and exhibit works which, though dear to the artists heart, have yet to find venue in the local art scene. The work is familiar; comfortable for some and graphic at times for others. We welcome you to join us in the conversation of what it means to show work, no matter how ‘weird’ it may get.

‘A Hair in the Stars and Grass’
Peter Richards
June 2 – July 1, 2017

In this new work I want each piece to tell a story, but with only the aura of a story and perhaps its setting doing the telling. I enjoy reading stories and so I’m interested in the ways stories evoke, transport, and enlist the reader into adventures built more out of atmosphere, tone, and voice, than what is ostensibly narrative. While events in life are important, I find it curious, and perhaps it stands as a rule—a great novel is great always despite it’s story. So I look in this new work to explore the question— outside of figure, what are some of the utilities a painting enjoys for creating realities that are at once habitable, intimate, and convincing, I’m also curious about the activity that exists somewhere in the overlap between viewing a painting and reading a text. I like to populate my paintings (suggestively) with what might be perceived as purely imaginary letters, and from alphabets and languages that are equally imagined. Imagined, but are they real? and if so, what are the semiotic, aesthetic, and spatial consequences when such lettering presents itself as not only imaginary, but also biological in form, and sentient in disposition? For me the question occurs simultaneous with the painting becoming embryonic in its outcome, and perhaps even still astral yet in the stage and mode it presents itself to the viewer. And as much as I want my painting to each one tell the particular story of how it came into being, it’s also true I wish for the viewer’s attention to absorb into the painting as one of its happily imagined, and living constituents.

Peter Richards – ‘The Slips’

‘Character Witness’
Alex Costantino
May 27 – June 3, 2017

Although these are images riddled and defined by abstraction, still they are images of human beings experiencing change, life, transformation. They are meant at once to be paintings- objects concerned with their own materiality and the manner of their creation- as well as communions of artist and subject. What makes them portraits is, as much as anything, that they are not the human beings they represent.

Every portrait is a fiction, just as every painting is simultaneously an engagement with a subject and, in itself, an inert object. Whether full scale nudes or merely a pair of hands, these paintings are meant to capture some measure of an individual- some measure of the subjects’ emotional residue, of their physical presence, of their life lived apart from being a subject. And because these paintings depict people through varied ages and stages of life, these pictures communicate that transition. Each one is being, and becoming.

Alex Costantino – ‘Domenica’
