‘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!

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.
