Feathers and Fur Exhibition: Portraits of Field, Forest & Farm
is scheduled to open at 12 Noon on Saturday, October 3, 2015 and run through the end of April 2016. The exhibit is made possible by the Springfield Regional Development Corporation. The Great Hall is a participant in the Statewide Open Studio Weekend (October 3-4) and will be open both Saturday and Sunday from 11-4p. Regular viewing hours are 9-5p, Monday through Friday.
Artists featured include Richard CoFrancesco, Springfield, VT; Donna Ellery, McIndoe Falls, VT; Rick Hearn, Chester, VT; Lesley Heathcote, Brattleboro, VT; Jennifer Maharry, Culver City, CA; Christine Mix, Manchester Center, VT; Robin Truelove Stronk, Westmoreland, NH; Jamie Townsend, Springfield, VT and Adelaide Tyrol, Plainfield, VT.
Nina Jamison, Director of Exhibition says: “One of the goals of this new exhibit is to renew a sense of wonder and awareness for animals and nature. Inspired by their subjects and the natural world, the nine artists in Feather & Fur celebrate the beauty, intelligence and grace of animals and birds. The portraits convey a poetry and beauty that are part of the animal’s story. Some of the portraits are colorful, sweet and charming, even magical. Artist and art director, Adelaide Tyrol's 6’ by10’ canvass present a different perspective and suggest the regal yet darker side of nature.“
At the Saturday opening to meet the artists, VINS and artist Christine Mix will present live demonstrations. Beginning at 12:30 p.m. Christine Mix will demonstrate how to draw animals. This will be followed by a presentation by Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) with an up close and personal encounter with live hawks and an owl. Cider and cider donuts along with seasonal faire will be served.
Nina Jamison, co-curated the show with Carolyn Enz Hack, an artist from Thetford Center whose work has been exhibited nationally. Her sculptures have also been exhibited in two different shows in the Great Hall – the inaugural show, Emergence, as well as in Fibrations.
