April: ‘Form/Function’ a Vermont Woodworking School Alumni Exhibition!

‘Form/Function’

A Vermont Woodworking School Alumni Exhibition

April 5 – 27, 2019

First Friday Opening Reception, April 5th from 5-9pm

Open Gallery Hours through April: Thursdays – Saturdays from 12-5pm

Glow Lamp by Towards Nightfall

Continuing in the long tradition of woodworking and craft culture in
the Northeast, ‘Form/Function’ features the works of emerging fine
furniture makers in Vermont. The makers each look to infuse beauty and
artistry into the objects that we live and interact with everyday,
looking past pure utilitarianism to craft pieces truly worth sharing
our spaces with.

Crook, chair by Jamie Herman

All the exhibitors were trained at the Vermont Woodworking School in
Fairfax and are members of the newly-formed Collective working out of
a cooperative shop in the school’s historic red barn. The members
represent four emerging furniture businesses, each one bringing a
distinct style and design aesthetic while staying true to the
time-tested methods of traditional wooden joinery and construction
techniques.

Intrepid, case by Valor Woodworking

____________

“Form/Function” features contemporary, handcrafted furniture from members of The Collective at the Vermont Woodworking School. The exhibit showcases modern takes on traditional wooden furniture forms,
blurring the line between art and function. Works by emerging local design/build companies Eleven Wood Design, Jamie Herman Studio Furniture, Towards Nightfall, and Valor Woodworks. Selections of photography featured by fellow woodworker, Eli Rosenblum-Stephens.

March Exhibition: ‘On The Dotted Line’ Solo Show by Ashley Roark

‘On The Dotted Line’

Solo Exhibition by Ashley Roark

March 1 – 30, 2019
Open Thursdays – Saturdays from 12-5pm

Unique 12 color palette created exclusively by Ashley Roark for a show filled with screenprinting, collage, painting, installation, and video!

‘Making it Work’ monoprint collage by Ashley Roark

Ashley Roark’s signature style of creating collaged assemblages in minimalist color palettes has translated nicely to screen printing in her latest series of works! Roark sought out to learn the screen printing technique as a way to broaden her knowledge of processes, with the goal of finding a new way of mark-making in her own hand. Translating her distinct art language into a new medium has opened up a world of unique possibilities through monoprinting.

‘Place Mark’ ink, charcoal, graphite by Ashley Roark

Each piece is created through gestural movements with ink, she likens to dancing, that are then pulled through a screen. Later the work is curated and cut into shapes that find their final form in collage. In addition to collage, ‘On the Dotted Line’ features expressive paintings and unique sculpture by Ashley Roark that will solidify the artists style to the viewer, in a cohesive new body of work.

‘All Dolled Up’ monoprint collage by Ashley Roark

Enjoy and see you soon!

February Exhibition: ‘All the Feels’

All the Feels

February 1 – 23, 2019

Opening Reception, First Friday, February 1

In Background; ‘Awe’ by Jeremy Goldberg

So how does that make you feel? Art has the ability to bring on strong emotions in the viewer. In Florence, Italy there have been so many known cases of visitors fainting due to the overwhelming concentration of extraordinary works of art, that there is even a name for it, the Stendhal or Florence syndrome. This February, The Space Gallery aims to strike you with a bit of cupid’s arrow causing a rapid heart rate, a sense of awe, and falling in love with works of art that express their feelings in a multitude of ways.

‘Triangle Boy’ oil on paper by Jessie Polk

 

Artists were encouraged to showcase work that was created with emotion, where the content of the piece itself exudes emotion, or if the goal of the piece was to elicit an emotional response in the viewer. See for yourself if you can interpret the original intention. In many cases, there is more than meets the eye, and it simply must be felt.

‘Rythmic Pathway’ acrylic on canvas by Nikki Laxar

Paired with an artist made Valentine’s Day Card Swap! Participants may register through February 1st for a mailbox, or help yourself to some supplies while visiting and make your own Valentine’s Card…inspired by the work in the exhibition!

‘Small Works’ Continues for January, 2019

Happy New Year from Space!

First Friday Art Walk January

‘Small Works’ Exhibition Continues!
Friday January 4th – Saturday 17th

‘It Was So Cold on Shelburne Bay Last Winter’, encaustic by Jessie Polk

Sevendays newspaper so aptly states about our continuing exhibition….

“You’ve put away the holiday decorations, dragged the tree to the curb and made a New Year’s resolution: to buy some art for yourself. At Burlington’s S.P.A.C.E. Gallery, a whole exhibit full of petite artworks by Vermont artists measure no more than 12 inches, yet come in a big variety of styles and mediums. Consider decorating all of your rooms.”  We couldn’t agree more!

‘Sailing Dory’, acrylic by Tim Neiley

Join us every First Friday Art Walk from 5-9pm for complimentary wine and refreshments as you decide which pieces to take home with you!

‘Moonlit Haybales I’, oil on panel by Paul McMillan
