The painted portrait is the fruit of an act of stillness, of noticing what remains present in the aftermath of lived experience, of truthfully seeing the physical human form and the circumstances that surround it, capturing the gravity and dignity of what is here still. Works by Vermont based painters Kate Longmaid, Nathaniel J Moody and Corrine Yonce invite the viewer to the same transformative process: to be here, still. Curated by Lydia Kern and Susan Smereka.
On exhibit May 5th through July 25th

In this recent body of work, I feel compelled to speak out. Reworking these portraits, I give them a voice and through them find my own. I have found something liberating about writing over the portraits. They move from the singular to the universal. They began with a vision of graffiti scrawled over a portrait. Slogans from the Women's March, historic speeches, poetry, quotations, and phrases are sources for the words.
At the center of the work is freedom of expression and the importance of not remaining silent. It's about standing up for what matters. Its about speaking on behalf of those who cannot speak or are at risk of being silenced.
10 Percent of sales of work will benefit EMERGE VERMONT, an organization committed to identifying, training, and encouraging women to run for office at all levels of government, get elected, and serve their communities and our state. Emerge Vermont is an affiliate of Emerge America, a national organization currently working in 17 states. I am proud to support this vital organization in promoting women's voices to benefit us all.

Opening Reception Jan. 30, 5 - 7 pm
Chandler Gallery is thrilled to announce the opening of Salvage. This thought-provoking group show features more than 20 Vermont artists working with found materials. From assemblage and collage to large-scale sculpture, artists mix mediums and blur the lines between art and daily life. By definition, Salvage is a rescuing, a saving of things, and the work included achieves much more; it transforms, re-imagines and reassembles. From the past to the page, pedestals and the gallery, viewers will be taken beyond the banality of the decay to a place where remarkable beauty lays within discarded gems rescued from waste. The opening reception for Salvage is January 30th from 5-7pm. The show is curated by Josh Turk and runs through March 19th.
