‘Unnatural Light’ Exhibition

‘Unnatural Light’

Opening Reception Details for March 13, 2020

‘Thousands of Islands’ by Alexander Costantino $750

Details on Friday, March 13 The Space Gallery takes the health of the creative community seriously. That comes in many forms;

First; We will be open tonight from 5 – 9pm but for a limited opening reception. We will host another reception in April or when it is safer to do so. We have disinfected everything and will not be serving food or drinks tonight. We have hand sanitizer at the front door and a hand washing sink. Please stay home and enjoy our social media posts and live feeds tonight if you are feeling nervous or unwell. We will limit access if it feels too crowded, so please make sure to move along to the outside or hallways as more people come in!

‘Luna Glow’ by Nikki Laxar, acrylic on canvas $150

Second; The health of the creative community also means financial support! We are in love with this unique exhibition where each piece illuminates and will post each piece and a post about the artists throughout the month on Facebook and Instagram @spacegalleryvt. We encourage you to buy work online and we will ship to you! Artists, music, and industry workers are at high risk now due to cancelled events and limited attendance. Please do your part to support this vital portion of our community through commissions and purchases of artwork. We need beauty and light now more than ever. Enjoy in person or from home tonight, thank you.
Sincerely, The Space Gallery

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.

____________

“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.

November: ‘Note to Self’ An Installation by Christy Mitchell

‘Note to Self’

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

November 2 – December 1, 2018
First Friday Art Walk: November 2, 5-10pm


‘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.
