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.
