JOIN US for the final gallery opening of the season... Books: Matter and Magic with Genese Grill and Diane Gayer. Smaller books and other writings will also be displayed and for sale. Opening Reception is Friday, August 31, 2018 / 5-8pm (artist talk at 6pm).
BOOKS: MATTER and MAGIC is a show about books, their making, and the spirit behind them. Genese Grill's painted work "Almandal Grimoire: The Book as Magical Object" is a large-scale set of written and drawn on wood panels, while Diane Gayer's "Of Earth and Being" is a book of photographs at the intersection of man and nature and was printed on the Heidelberg Press at Villanti Printers, Milton, VT. While very different in production and finished entity, both books speak to the magical realms of existence.
Genese Grill, artist, writer, translator, and editor of 05401 PLUS now lives in Plainfield, VT.
Diane Elliott Gayer, architect, writer, and artist lives in Burlington, VT.
Please join us for the Opening Reception with artists Emily Brown and Russell Fellows, 5-8PM. Artist talks at 6PM.

Spirit of Place : a combination of playful and thoughtful work that is both grounded in the dynamic spirit and color of Flying Kites from Kate Pond and the more structured black & white linocuts from Nori Pepe based on her discoveries of place in her travels.
Kate Pond's Flying Kites kite sculptures hang throughout the volume of the gallery and two will be available to fly during the Saturday May 5th, afternoon OPENING.

Fleeting Nature - The ephemeral nature of our history, climate, and human conditions. We live in changing times, but haven't we always? In any case, these Auer Family river boats speak to an era when our connection to water, sky, and earth were deeply intricate and Mary Zompetti's photographic images of Lake Champlain ask us to review what we know about watery life.
