Lynne Bond has lived in Charlotte, Vermont, for the past thirty-five years, and is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Vermont. Her work and art explore relationships between individual identity and community, including their boundaries and adaptations to one another.
Physicality, deliberation, and repetition characterize the sculpture of R. Elliott Katz. His work depicts the natural world in tension with the needs of people, and juxtaposes the finely crafted object with down-home subject matter and materials. Nonument to the Paysage presents an unremarkable rural scene in monumental form.
Growing up in the hills of Vermont, Kate Pond’s first sculptures were of cattle bones, clay or fallen branches found in the woods near home. She now works exclusively in steel. Her sculptures invite participation: with people, with sun, shadows and alignments at different seasons of the year. The position of the sun, moon and stars creates a structure, like a painter might use a rectangle as a frame of reference. Pond’s recent public work includes Come Light, Visit Me at Champlain College in Burlington, VT, and Wellspring at the Heller School at Brandeis University near Boston, MA.
Torin Porter’s passion for sculpture has its roots in early experiences. Born in 1969 in northeastern Vermont, he grew up next door to and performed with the Bread & Puppet Theater. As an adult, he toured internationally as a stilt dancer with the MOMIX dance company, created sculptural performance events for Phish’s outdoor concerts, large-scale sculptures for the Bonnaroo music festival in Tennessee, and served as props master for Circus Smirkus.
