‘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

‘All the Feels’ Closing Reception February 28, 2020

All the Feels

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!

My passion for the arts and love of creative endeavors has led me down a path of connecting artists to opportunity. My vision for the South End consists of building up relationships and paving new ways for artists and entrepreneurs to connect and communicate with each other and the broader community. My role at SEABA will be diverse, though centered on the idea of the organization being a platform to raise awareness and give a voice to artists and businesses, so that we all may thrive. I’m looking forward to many exciting days ahead.” – Christy Mitchell

We are very pleased to announce that Christy will be joining SEABA as our new Executive Director. This position requires a dynamic leader who is integral to our community, who has a deep knowledge of and appreciation for all that the South End has to offer,” stated Seth Mobley, President of the SEABA Board of Directors. “Christy is the right person to guide SEABA, to nurture its strengths, and to support the innovation taking place across our community.

In the next few months, the Board will work closely with Mitchell to explore and assess the South End’s needs by:
• Planning the 27th Annual South End Art Hop, optimizing its potential
• Conducting listening sessions within the community and engaging members
• Defining programmatic priorities for artists and businesses alike

setting and ask any question and feel comfortable doing so. We take
pride in showing artists work and will always do so professionally!

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.
