Category: Hello from Vermont 2011

Hello from Vermont is an exhibition, a catalog, and an ongoing project to explore contemporary art from Vermont by profiling artists and their practices. All of the artists featured here live and make art in Vermont. Here is the 2011 edition.

Sherri Rigby

Recently, Rigby has moved away from large work on canvas and embraced small paintings on paper that beckoning the viewer from the distance and insist on an intimate interaction. The cool, dreamlike images are small parts of a whole, leaving the viewer’s imagination to build context around them.

Will Patlove

Will Patlove’s uniquely stretched, painted canvases blur the lines between two and three dimensional artworks.

Tom McGlynn

Tom McGlynn is an artist, writer and educator based in New York City and Vermont. His art is represented in the collections of the Whitney Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Cooper- Hewitt National Design Museum of the Smithsonian. His work has been reproduced for the cover of Artforum magazine and featured in articles in the New York Times. His most recent commission was the public sculpture, Rotterdam Stages, installed in the city of Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Susan Larkin

Susan Larkin’s paintings are the result of her dialogue with the natural world. As she goes about her life on the island—walking the dog or running errands—the beauty of the land and her mood come together in a visceral moment that she documents with a quick sketch or a photograph.

Anne Cummings

“In the quest to justify my creation of art and meld it with my environmental convictions, “Vermont Wastescapes” was born. This series was a six-year journey to create a large-scale conceptual work celebrating the state I call home, using exclusively re-cycled, re-claimed, and re-purposed materials. It is intended to raise awareness about the volume of human waste we create, and its toll on places of natural beauty, even in a state considered as “green” as Vermont.”
