Current Exhibition, ‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ by Christy Mitchell & 100th Show at Space!

‘Don’t Be A Stranger’

Annual Solo Exhibition by Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell

It’s The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery’s 100th Month of Continuous Shows!

Exhibition Duration: November 3 – 25, 2017

‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ photography series by Christy Mitchell taken by Luke Awtry

Each November, The Space Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell, recounts her past year with a conceptual solo exhibition in the form of an autobiographical installation using various media. The work is presented in such a way that the viewer may also see themselves in the story line, identifying with broader concepts of social interaction, relationships, and human or cultural experiences.

Manipulated Vintage Rotary Phones by Christy Mitchell

Following 2016’s ‘IRL’, a story about finding love in the digital age, ‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ is a telling of just how arduous dating ‘in real life’ can be. Modern terms such as ‘ghosting’ reference the tired game of waiting by the phone for someone who may never call. Mitchell uses vintage rotary phones, collage, photography, and set design in a palette which compliment a mid-century era noir film aesthetic, a thriller in fact, asking who done it?

‘Don’t Be A Stranger’ photography series by Christy Mitchell taken by Luke Awtry

There is an ever present power flow within the context of the ritual of dating. The one with the power to shoot someone down, the one who takes that power back by denying the dominance of the other….who is holding the gun? …or sent that last message?

October 2017 Exhibition, ‘Dark Matter’

Dark Matter

A Juried Dark Arts Exhibition
October 6 – 28, 2017

‘En Route III’, oil on wood panel, by Lydia Gatzow

Opening Reception First Friday Art Walk
October 6th from 5-9pm

‘Dark Matter’, in a scientific sense, has never been directly observed; however, its existence would explain a number of otherwise puzzling astronomical observations. We’ve asked artists to consider how existence and puzzling realities…and fantasies, play in to their own work and interpretation of the universe.

‘Monday Vibes’,
acrylic, latex, mixed media on slate by Jackie Bishop

Do you feel that we may be in the new ‘dark ages’ with regards to our environment or political climate? The work in this exhibition asks you, the viewer as well, to consider the broader ideas of the human and cultural experience.

‘When Silence is Betrayal’, pigment ink framed print by Matt Larson $150 (100% of artist’s proceeds to Black Lives Matter Vermont)

This exhibition is extraordinary! We are looking forward to showing you. See you on First Friday Art Walk and all month long!

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

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.

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.
