Call to Artists: ‘All the Feels’ 2023

Deadline for Entry: Saturday, January 28, 2023

‘All the Feels’ asks you to submit work that exudes emotion! How do you feel during the creation process? Does the content of your work bring joy, angst, humor? What emotions does the viewer go through when experiencing the art?

Whether you felt it during the creation process, you can see it in the content of the piece, or the viewer takes in some of that brooding or underlying excitement, we want to see it! Creation can be gorgeous and/or disturbing. We all want to feel connected and artwork bridges many paths.

All mediums and sizes presented by artists of all ages and stage of their careers are welcome!

Note: This is a juried and curated show, you will be notified of the selection on January 29, with work to be dropped off by February 1, 2023 during designated times.

Learn more and submit your work directly here:

November Exhibition: ‘Object Permanence’ by Christy Mitchell – Read the review!

‘Object Permanence’ by Christy Mitchell

Closing Reception: Friday, December 2 from 5-8pm

Exhibition Duration: November 11 – December 2, 2022

Open Hours: Fridays & Saturdays 12-5pm

The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery’s Director, Christy Mitchell, returns with her annual solo show this November with ‘Object Permanence’. The term refers to the understanding that objects continue to exist even when they cannot be sensed. During the pandemic, sticking to the indoors, we all assumed that life still existed outside our walls, that there would be a similar world to rejoin when the time came. Through the use of walls, furniture, a portal and even artificial intelligence, Mitchell creates an installation that is part dream and part allegory on our collective experience with covid and the new world that surrounds us.

Read the Seven Days Review Here!

From: ‘Christy Mitchell’s ‘Object Permanence’ Explores Expectations in a Post-COVID-19 World’ by Pamela Polston

Object permanence, as many will remember from college psychology class, refers to the understanding that things and people continue to exist even when you can’t see or hear them. First documented by child psychologist Jean Piaget, that realization is a necessary milestone in a baby’s brain development, even if it dashes the hilarity of playing peekaboo.

“Object Permanence” is also the title of Christy Mitchell’s current exhibition at Burlington’s S.P.A.C.E. Gallery. She borrows the term to refer to the expectations we had about the world when we were shut-ins during the pandemic and how we experience the world now.

“During COVID, we were confined [at home], but we had this sense that things would still be the same,” she said during a gallery visit. “They’re not, in so many ways.” Read more here.

‘The Shape of Things’ July 1 – August 6, 2022

‘The Shape of Things’ July 1 – August 6, 2022

‘Clouds’ (detail) sculpture by Kevin Donegan

The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery is honored to host an exhibition many months in the making. The title, ‘The Shape of Things’ feels even more poignant now as we struggle to make sense of our world, how we express ourselves, and how we may work together as a community to lift each other up in the face of oppression and seemingly insurmountable challenges. Gallery Director, Christy Mitchell, approached four artists in the past year to participate in a show simply about shape. These artists create work that plays with geometry and with patterns that literally or figuratively appear to float off the standard 2-D frame.

Kevin Donegan, an artist working just down the street, joins us from a recent residency at the Vermont Studio Center. Donegan states, “The intent of this installation is to create an environment which feels ominous and potentially dangerous, but also beautiful and serene. Touching on themes of climate change, escapism, and the slippery nature of perception, it attempts to engage viewers viscerally and intellectually, and is rooted in the artist’s desire to affect change.” 

‘It’s Ok’ sculpture by Kevin Donegan

Will Patlove has been exhibiting with us from time to time for a decade and we thoroughly enjoy his playful interpretation of what the shape of a painted surface can be. Bent and manipulated pieces covered in canvas or carved and cut wood become multi-faceted planes in which Patlove applies his minimalist color palettes.

Frank Tamasi is a newer artist to The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery and creates meticulous geometric pieces by hand (without tape or straight edges) feeling each line and selecting each color deliberately. Tamasi states that, “Color theory plays a vital role in my work allowing me to express inner-energies that otherwise leave me at a loss of words….The layering of colors immerse you deeper and deeper as you look at it longer. It creates an experience that not only brings light into any room, but ignites an emotion internally through the vibrations.”

Haley Fenn expresses herself through form, both with one of a kind jewelry and with sculptures that play with hard geometric edges and softer shapes and palettes. Fenn’s work draws you in, you notice it in any room, as if the work has something to say and it will tell you if you just listen long enough. A first time showing with us, we are thrilled to host a series of her sculptures in this exhibition.
