August First Friday Art Walk – Celebrate 85 Years of the NVAA Member Exhibition

August 2016 at Space: ‘NVAA Member Exhibition’

Return of the Prodigal Cows by David Goodrich

Return of the Prodigal Cows by David Goodrich


“NVAA at Space Gallery”      
Northern Vermont Arts Association Member Exhibition    

Exhibition Duration; August 5 – 27, 2016

Opening Reception; First Friday Art Walk, August 1 from 5 – 9pm

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.

From 1932 through 1972 the NVAA held its annual 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 85 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.

Today, in addition to its venerable annual June show, the NVAA offers its members the opportunity to show their work in many lovely locations. Showing for the first time at The Space Gallery this August, the NVAA celebrates 85 years, right here with us in the heart of the South End Arts District in Burlington.

First Friday Art Walk July 1st – “Over the River and Through the Woods” & “Creative Competition”

‘Over the River and Through the Woods’

Paintings by Michele Johnsen & Barbara Nedd             

Exhibition Duration; July 1 – 30, 2016

Opening Reception; First Friday Art Walk, July 1 from 5 – 9pm

This exhibition by two long-time artists is a reflection of their respective journeys, relations to places past and present, and history as friends and fellow makers.  Barbara, a past resident of Colebrook, NH and Michele a current one, engages in work that is informed by the small town and rural landscape of this Northern, NH location.   Color is a common thread to all the works and unites the exhibition as the passion for that element drives much of the work.  The importance of “place” inspires and drives the passion to create and feeds the need to express through works of art, their connection to it.

May 2016 Exhibition at The SPACE Gallery

‘Digital Immigrant’
by Kristen M. Watson

Exhibition Duration; May 6 – 28, 2016

Opening Reception; First Friday Art Walk, May 6 from 5 – 9pm
Artist Talk at 6:30pm

A multi-sensory mixed media art installation that explores the transition from analog to digital life and how social and digital media have altered the way we experience and relate to one another and ourselves.

Notice Me:Ignore Me - Kristen Watson

Kristen M. Watson explores her own transition (immigration) from analog to digital life through interactive, multi-sensory mixed media assemblage, large-scale digital prints, and installation pieces that create a “digital-real” environment. By manipulating electronic material and exploiting methods that exist solely due to digital technology she addresses themes of presence and distraction, paralysis of choice, decontextualization of information, temporality and permanence, and the physical & emotional addiction to social validation. Watson creates a visually compelling comment on the influence of digital technology on human relationships and the self.

‘News From NowHere’
by Jeff Bruno

Exhibition Duration; May 6 – 28, 2016

Opening Reception; First Friday Art Walk, May 6 from 5 – 9pm

In ‘News From NowHere’, Bruno moves away from his more meticulous oil paintings and ballpoint pen drawings, seeking only immediacy in execution. The work is nearly instantaneous, leaving no room for editing, minimizing the distance between conception and expression. Experimenting with different media from cardboard to paint markers, charcoal to papier mache, each piece is designed to be disposable, temporary, unarchivable. Through sketches and sculptural scribbles, the artist explores the reasons behind his compulsion to create, and why that desire is all too often dimmed by his obsessive need for perfection, his fear of self expression and the nagging distraction of “sellability” that has blunted his previous work.

‘Ignecia’
A Dystopian Morality Tale Told in Sculpture
by Mark Eliot Schwabe

April 1 – April 30, 2016

BreitenbachsPeakbyMarkEliotSchwabe

Opens; First Friday Art Walk, April 1, 2016

“Ignecia” is a dystopian morality tale told in sculpture by Mark Eliot Schwabe.  Twenty five pieces, all made of aged steel and dark concrete, depict a stark and beautiful post apocalyptic landscape. Bronze figures are featured in the smaller free-standing works, showing the ‘innocent’ plagued by evil doers, who in the subsequent battle, are driven back by a hero figure in the form of an “Artist Champion” (the sculptors self portrait). The exhibition is augmented by installations and a series of black & white photographs of the ‘Ignecian’ environment. There is no shortage of dystopian tales in literature, film and art, but this narrative in sculpture is both unusual and intriguing.
