The inspiration for this year’s exhibition comes from Shirley Jackson’s 1958 novel “The Sundial.”

"WHAT IS THIS WORLD? The question inscribed on the sundial (a quote from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, in "The Knight's Tale") echos through the book. The story explores a family’s response to an apocalyptic vision of the world...

WHAT IS THIS WORLD? Seems an obvious question to ask ourselves at this moment.

 

While we live on this world, we reside in our own worlds. 

 

What kind of world do you see?

The Strip Show

While to strip is to lay bare and to remove layers the word evokes both removing and remaining

.

A show of recent work by local artists Greg Winterhalter, Berta Burr and Gregory Smith.

Greg Winterhalter is a visual artist working in drawing, painting, mixed media, paper making and ceramics. He is Professor Emeritus of Art and Humanities, teaching at Southern Vermont College from 1979 to 2016.
The majority of his work in this exhibit are widely ranging drawings excerpted from his sketchbook experiences and posted as "daily drawings" on social media.

Berta Burr established a studio in her early twenties. Work as a gilder and restorer has given her an informed level of craftsmanship. Since 1990 her studio output has been directed toward original art of a representational nature. Her paintings typically echo Dutch painting from the 17th C. The collages at first seem to be a departure, but one senses the acute precision found in Dutch painting. The group of collages on view use appropriated images as a vehicle to amuse.

Vermont metal sculptor, Gregory Smith, has shown his sculpture throughout the United States and has received numerous awards for his work. For this exhibit at the Left Bank, he will be showing a mini-survey of his sculpture from the last four decades. For more about the artist please visit www.gregorysmithsculpture.com.
