‘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.

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?

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.

Opening Reception: First Friday Art Walk May 5, 5-9pm

A Spell To End Strife, Beth Robinson

Statement on ‘Conjuring: She Rises’:

325 years ago, the Salem Witch Trials were an example of a hysteria that people can experience when faced with fear. Witch hunts, whether hunting actual witches, or not, are a serious global threat. Conjuring: She Rises is a group show of 13 artists in honor of the anniversary of the Salem Witch Trial. These artists use art as a political agent of change to reclaim the power of vulnerability over terror.
