Multimedia works ‘In Real Life’ with Christy Mitchell
‘IRL’ of Christy Mitchell by Luke Awtry
Romance in the digital age as a woman ‘seeking’ is a treasure trove of miscommunications and preconceived notions of what the perfect partner should be. It gives you a two-dimensional view into the hopes and fears of single (and sometimes not so single) potential partners, communicating in profiles both eloquent and idiotic. Taking the leap from speaking to strangers online to meeting ‘in real life’, Christy Mitchell documents the often vulnerable process with humor and grace through photography, video, and mixed media compositions taken from the computer screen.
Paintings by Frank DeAngelis (aka Frankie D.)
‘Losing Head Over Heart’ by Frank DeAngelis
Frank DeAngelis in the Studio
November 4 – 26, 2016
Frank DeAngelis began painting for the first time only 7 months ago and has been passionately addicted ever since. Fueled by loud music and heartache, his favorite time to create is after midnight alone in the studio. The work is raw and gritty, featuring the artists’ heartfelt imagination, angst, excitement and love in each brush stroke. Canvas edges are not framed or painted over, ‘Frankie D.’ states, “My artwork is imperfect, much like life itself.”

August 2016 at Space: ‘NVAA Member Exhibition’
Return of the Prodigal Cows by David Goodrich
“NVAA at Space Gallery”
Northern Vermont Arts Association Member Exhibition
Exhibition Duration; August 5 – 27, 2016
Opening Reception; First Friday Art Walk, August 1 from 5 – 9pm
The Northern Vermont Artist Association was founded right here in Burlington, VT in 1931 by Harold S. Knight and a group of Vermont artists in search of venues for their art. One of the first members of this new art organization was the renowned American painter, Maxfield Parrish.

From 1932 through 1972 the NVAA held its annual show at the Robert Hull Fleming Museum at UVM. Exhibitions have since moved around Vermont in locations large enough for the membership. Over the last 85 years, many important Vermont artists have exhibited their work in one or more of these shows, including Francis Colburn, Ruth Mould, Stan Marc Wright, Emile Gruppe, Mary and Alden Bryan and Roy Kennedy.
Today, in addition to its venerable annual June show, the NVAA offers its members the opportunity to show their work in many lovely locations. Showing for the first time at The Space Gallery this August, the NVAA celebrates 85 years, right here with us in the heart of the South End Arts District in Burlington.

A Dystopian Morality Tale Told in Sculpture
by Mark Eliot Schwabe
April 1 – April 30, 2016
Opens; First Friday Art Walk, April 1, 2016
“Ignecia” is a dystopian morality tale told in sculpture by Mark Eliot Schwabe. Twenty five pieces, all made of aged steel and dark concrete, depict a stark and beautiful post apocalyptic landscape. Bronze figures are featured in the smaller free-standing works, showing the ‘innocent’ plagued by evil doers, who in the subsequent battle, are driven back by a hero figure in the form of an “Artist Champion” (the sculptors self portrait). The exhibition is augmented by installations and a series of black & white photographs of the ‘Ignecian’ environment. There is no shortage of dystopian tales in literature, film and art, but this narrative in sculpture is both unusual and intriguing.
