Landscape Installations by Alex Costantino
NOW’S YOUR CHANCE! Check out this unique exhibition for the first time or visit again to hear the talented Alex Costantino speak about the work, material, process, and concept behind ‘Avalon’, August 3rd at 7pm.
_________________________________________________

In the better half of the 21st century, in the middle of a glacier-carved lake in the hilly north edge of a certain green, mountainous state, there is an island village called Avalon. It exists after scarcity, with a peculiar continuity to its past as a lumber milling center and a summertime retreat for farther-flung wealth. Avalon is a portrait of a particular rural future, one in which the questions of life in the outer edges of a wealthy, deeply unequal society have been answered in unexpected ways.

 

The world of Avalon is partially one of technological post scarcity, with much of the challenge of keeping everyone housed and clothed solved by careful and efficient extraction of the means of keeping all people housed, clothed, and fed using technologies most analogous to contemporary rapid prototyping, made democratically cheap and ubiquitous, but also changes in society, locally and throughout this global future, of more free and more equal distribution not only of the technology at issue, but the knowledge and means to use it. It hasn’t meant that there are no clerks, or farmers, or teachers on Avalon, but that none of them really want for anything.

The project of Avalon comes from a desire to see a future for the world we live in, one not mired in dystopias that warn us against our worst possible todays without pointing toward the better world that is indeed possible. It’s particularly pressed on by a desire to see a future that isn’t characterized by the bleeding edge of the technologically and culturally possible we see in most speculative fiction, one centered on the great cosmopolitan global cities or interplanetary frontiers, but one that can be envisioned in the small, aging towns, the remote and currently-shrinking places that have and likely will be receiving the future’s distribution second and third-hand.

‘Theory of Relativity’ encaustic by Jessie Polk

The Space Gallery is built on ideals of being accessible; to artists
and viewers alike. For us, this means that you may show your artwork regardless of your age, medium, and experience in the arts. Everyone needs a first gallery exhibition and we have seen artists go on to New York City, Chicago, or stay right here in Vermont, fulfilling their dreams of becoming a full time artist and making a living at it. For all of May, Space Gallery Members showcase pieces of artwork that they are proud of, is new for them, or best exemplifies their specific style. This also serves as a pre-view of the artists work that we will be showing throughout the coming year.

‘She Could Not Sleep’ oil painting by Corrine Yonce

‘Just the Essentials’ photography by Lauren Mazzotta

For the viewer; accessibility to us means that someone may visit the
gallery who may not have been in a formal exhibition setting before
and ask any question and feel comfortable doing so. Artists may walk in as well with questions about how to show or price work, and receive advice or critiques on their portfolio. We take pride in showing artwork and will always do so professionally.

Anyone, anywhere may become a member of The Space Gallery. We look forward to working with you, and as always…..
Thank you for your support!

April 2018: ‘Home Works’ by Kylie Dally and Corrine Yonce

Home Works

by Kylie Dally and Corrine Yonce

April 6 – 28, 2018

Opening Reception:
First Friday Art Walk, April 6th from 5 – 9pm


In honor of the anniversary of the passing of the Fair Housing Act and in remembrance of the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968, April is set aside as National Fair Housing Month.

2018 coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act. Former President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1968, signing fair housing into law.

“Now, with this bill, the voice of justice speaks again,” Johnson said
as he signed the bill. “It proclaims that fair housing for all, all
human beings who live in this country, is now part of the American way of life.”


 

‘Guy Salvomini, South Burlington Community Housing’ acrylic on masonite by Corrine Yonce

This April, The Space Gallery is honored to show the wonderful work of Kylie Dally and Corrine Yonce who have created paintings of, with, and for the residents of Burlington Housing Authority.

‘Wharf Lane Community Painting’ with Kylie Dally

With the guidance of Kylie Dally, a series of nature paintings were created with residents of Wharf Lane Apartments in Burlington as a way to connect them with nature, art, and community. Utilizing plants sourced in the area, the work is to be permanently installed in their building this summer.

Residents wanted art, colorful walls, and to have some control over the appearance of their living environment, and with the financial assistance of a Burlington City Arts Community Fund Grant, the work has done just that.

‘Debra Pratt, Decker Towers’ acrylic on masonite by Corrine Yonce

Corrine Yonce’s series, ‘Voices of Home’ combines the audio narratives and painted portraits of affordable housing residents of Decker Towers and South Burlington Community Housing. The result is vibrant work that demonstrates the importance of safe, healthy, and affordable homes.

Yonce has received support for the project from Burlington City Arts, the Vermont Arts Council, Fair Housing Vermont, Curtis Lumber and worked in collaboration with Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition. She is currently the artist in resident at New City Gallery on Church Street, Burlington.

March 2018: ‘In The Moment’ collage work by Ashley Roark, Barbee Hauzinger, and Christy Mitchell

In The Moment

Collage Work by Ashley Roark, Barbee Hauzinger, and Christy Mitchell

March 2 – 31, 2018

Opening Reception:
First Friday Art Walk, March 2nd from 5 – 9pm

Collage by Barbee Hauzinger – ‘In Search of the Waganauts’

Ashley Roark, Barbee Hauzinger, and Christy Mitchell have much in common; females in their thirties creating collage artwork…though their styles range from minimalism to conceptual, crossing a wide spectrum of time and eras with their materials and visual media.

Collage by Ashley Roark – ‘Balances’

Ashley Roark sees paper as a place holder for memories. These assemblages create a language through the layering and manipulation of materials. Roark uses inspiration from typography to create form, space and movement. Her work utilizes vintage paper, acrylic paint, gouache, graphite, and wax. This new series illustrates Roark’s current experimentation with an expanded color palette, adding new elements of pale pink and sienna to her traditionally muted tones.

Collage by Barbee Hauzinger – ‘LIFE Magazine September 14, 1962’

Barbee Hauzinger uses collage as a way to actualize a landscape, a scene, and a place in time that could never be captured through her other creative passion, photography, exclusively with paper from vintage books and magazines.

In her ‘Where You’d Want to Be Series’, Hauzinger creates familiar yet curious scenes; snapshots that exude a sense of strange sense of nostalgia for the viewer.  The landscapes themselves are beautiful; star studded skies, ethereal heavenly bodies, pristine wildernesses. Yet there is something eerie and off about them, like these places may just be too good to be true.

The second series, ‘Age of Ads’ goes about dissecting and exploring American consumerism and commercialism through the use of ads from a single piece of print material. The piece featured above from this series uses only one magazine, LIFE Magazine September 14, 1962, dissecting the moment in time to one message; utopia can be created if you just buy the correct products.

Collage by Christy Mitchell – ‘Traffic Jam Uptown’ (detail)

Christy Mitchell creates a sense of nostalgia in her collages through the use of color and imagery printed in magazines from the late 40’s – early 70’s, though the artist herself never lived in those decades. Her choice of settings and the people depicted appear as if in a scene or a still of an imagined movie. Utilizing media from those specific eras, the content was ‘of the moment’ in those years, though when placed in fresh compositions the work takes on a new life, commenting on broader implications of our current place within society and with each other. The work is at times comforting, as though you could just go back ‘there’, paired with a voice in the back of your head, asking, ‘are you sure that you want to?’

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!
