Closing Reception, Friday, February 28 from 5-9pm

‘Gone Fishing’ by Jessica Avery

‘All the Feels’
February 7 – 29, 2020

All the Feels features artwork that exudes emotion, feeling, and causes reactions! Whether in the creation process from the artist, in the content of the piece, or in the response from the viewer while taking in the work, we all want to feel something. Due to the massive snow storm at the opening reception, we invite you back to celebrate this extraordinary exhibition featuring work by 40 artists!

200 submissions came in for consideration for this exhibition, which conveys to us that emotions are running high! That artists are creating! That the process of creating artwork is cathartic. 40 artists were selected to display their works in one of our favorite themes. Each piece tells a nuanced story and we invite you to dive in, see you soon!

‘In the Marsh’ mixed media by Eve Jacobs-Carnahan

The word Cadence, has rich associations. In jazz, it signals rhythm, flow and inventive solos in the company of others. Each of the four artists in this show bring a distinct approach to their art, yet a common thread – literally – ties these diverse and lively pieces together. Their work reflects deep engagement with their materials – and delight in the surprises and elaborations that spring from them.

‘Stitched Left Hand’ mixed media by Sharon Webster

Enjoy and see you during First Friday Art Walk, the Artist Talk, or all month long Thursdays – Saturdays from 12-5pm!

A Site Specific Conceptual Exhibition and Solo Show by Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell

‘Note to Self’ handwriting in astroturf by Christy Mitchell

‘Note to Self’ is a response to the call from a series of solo exhibitions by the artist, Christy Mitchell, that have taken place each year during the month of November at The Space Gallery in Burlington, Vermont, of which she also serves as the Director.

Mitchell’s site specific installations often integrate the memory of a past generation through the use of era based artifacts. She uses these symbols to communicate a way of living in relation to how she is feeling in the current moment.

‘Capable’ mixed media by Christy Mitchell

‘Note to Self’ feels as if you’ve walked into the artists home and noticed their notes on scrap paper or messages written in the condensation on shower doors that were never intended to be read by anyone but the author herself, though in fact the outside discovery was completely intentional.

‘fake it ’till you make it’ etched handwriting in glass, shadow on wall by Christy Mitchell

Immerse yourself while walking along the astroturf covered floors through a dreamlike installation…into the artists’ musings on what is real, what have we been faking along the way, and how do we really feel about it all now?

Visit ‘Note to Self’ at The Space Gallery any Thursday -Saturday from 12-5pm through December 1st, 2018.

‘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.

‘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.
