‘Word of Mouth’ Solo Exhibition by Christy Mitchell

Word of Mouth

Solo Exhibition by Christy Mitchell

November 8 – 30, 2019
Open Thursday – Saturday 12-5pm

Set in a 1950’s dream, apple pies cool on the window sill and girls talk on the phone with their friends about…everything. This annual site specific, conceptual installation by The Space Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell, often uses symbolism from past decades to comment on her own current story lines. ‘Word of Mouth’ has a few things to say about how we communicate and what is shared through networks in small towns. The process itself is nearly as interesting as the content when you consider how fast news travels and how it is interpreted. As you walk through the exhibition, tap into your own memories from the past. Each piece stands for a moment in time and a fleeting thought, smell, sight or taste. Each song has been handpicked, and every note is meant for you specifically.

Special thanks to all of our friends and supporters!

A Vermont Woodworking School Alumni Exhibition

April 5 – 27, 2019

First Friday Opening Reception, April 5th from 5-9pm

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.

Intrepid, case by Valor Woodworking

“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.

March Exhibition: ‘On The Dotted Line’ Solo Show by Ashley Roark

‘On The Dotted Line’

Solo Exhibition by Ashley Roark

March 1 – 30, 2019
Open Thursdays – Saturdays from 12-5pm

Unique 12 color palette created exclusively by Ashley Roark for a show filled with screenprinting, collage, painting, installation, and video!

‘Making it Work’ monoprint collage by Ashley Roark

Ashley Roark’s signature style of creating collaged assemblages in minimalist color palettes has translated nicely to screen printing in her latest series of works! Roark sought out to learn the screen printing technique as a way to broaden her knowledge of processes, with the goal of finding a new way of mark-making in her own hand. Translating her distinct art language into a new medium has opened up a world of unique possibilities through monoprinting.

‘Place Mark’ ink, charcoal, graphite by Ashley Roark

Each piece is created through gestural movements with ink, she likens to dancing, that are then pulled through a screen. Later the work is curated and cut into shapes that find their final form in collage. In addition to collage, ‘On the Dotted Line’ features expressive paintings and unique sculpture by Ashley Roark that will solidify the artists style to the viewer, in a cohesive new body of work.

‘All Dolled Up’ monoprint collage by Ashley Roark

Enjoy and see you soon!

October Exhibition: ‘Dark Matter’ at The Space Gallery

‘Dark Matter’

October 5 – 27, 2018
Opening Reception: October 5th, 5-9pm
Open Thursday – Saturday from 12-5pm


‘Self Portrait with Bolo’ oil on panel by Paul McMillan

The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery is honored to host our 10th annual ‘dark arts’ exhibition this October with the second edition of ‘Dark Matter’, juried and curated by gallery director, Christy Mitchell.

‘Sexual Terrorism War Against Women, Accountability Playing Cards’ by Toni-Lee Sangastiano

This group exhibition asked artists to express how they interpret personal views of the known and unknown world through artworks that are not always cheery and light, albeit still aesthetically pleasing. It went so much deeper than that with thought provoking work taking hard looks in regards to our current political climate, race relations, toxic masculinity, domestic terrorism, and the United States’ place in the world.

‘Out in the Cold’, collage by Ryan Geary

We also looked for beauty in the darkness; that you may find in decay, in death that leads to rebirth, and in diving into your own soul to attempt to answer the difficult questions and grow from it. How do positivity, truth, and humor play into this learning and/or unlearning? The attempt is to cause the viewer to think, to appreciate, to take a step back, in horror…or in awe.

‘Punished By The Gods: Narcissus’ ink, dye, colored pencil on illustration board by Andrew Prendimano
