Magicians Without Borders coming to North Hero - Sunday Sept 22, 2pm for a special magic show. OPEN to all.
where do you draw the line? This show is about exploring the effect that borders have on habitat: human, environmental, and spiritual. Our existence has always depended on moving, migrating, and adapting as conditions change. So what are the implications of drawing lines across space?
In Barbara Waters’ work, we see her create from the experience of encountering a wall cutting through our protected lands. And in Tuyen My Nguyen’s installation, we have string as line building a boundary through which we cannot pass.
John Douglas w/ Diane Gayer at “Of Earth: Image and Clay” — the show’s not over… which means we have a long way to go still on this planet Earth, despite the “Auto-Warming” CGI Prints. But how we proceed is the question? Both Ojihozo and Rock Formations can remind us that there is more. And as Sarah Rosedahl says in her art poster: “Make America Kind Again”… So let the Beauty of the Universe shine thru!
Joan Watson’s Clay Workshop was great fun. 10 attendees was about all the workshop space at the Gallery can accommodate, and we filled it.. Everyone learned (or relearned) about clay, working it, and forming it. Joan’s the best! letting pieces dry, get ready for burnishing or firing happened out side in the sun and wind. The class firing was cancelled due to massive storm threats, but a sub-group tried it on their own. Most of the pieces turned into archeological bits… Ah maybe better luck next year!
New signpost by custom metal fabricator John Marius. Great to have a permanent sign with some street presence after 3 years of getting many other things done around the Gallery. John has been the artist behind other projects at GreenTARA as well - the handrail inside, the outdoor bench legs, and the canopy brackets. Keep your eyes open - there’s more to come.
Join us for a Clay Workshop with Joan Watson on August 17. It will be 2hr of making free-form objects from locally-harvested clay starting 9:30am at GreenTARA. Shapes can be rocks, garden spirits, or made-up creatures - all up to you! Then we'll take a break while things dry, returning later in the afternoon to fire them in a simple campfire, in Alburgh.
Sat Aug 17, 9:30am / late afternoon. $10 donation. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Of Earth: Image and Clay works by artists John Douglas and Joan Watson. John’s Auto-Warming CGI Prints, Ojihozo Photographs, and several Videos (Auto-Warming, The Invasion of Granada, amongst others) will be presented along side Joan’s Rock Formations, in clay. John’s strange and watery world is grounded thru the density of Joan’s Lake Champlain-inspired balanced and stacked rocks. Show runs July 19 thru August 31, 2019. OPENING RECEPTION is July 26, 5-8pm.
