“Suspended Moments” a solo exhibit of new abstract oil paintings from Cameron Schmitz.
“Suspended Moments” features new abstract paintings with Schmitz’s dynamic brushwork and a lush color palette that already has us feeling the excitement of spring’s unfolding. “I use mark-making to express the constantly moving, changing, and morphing of life and nature, leaving observers certain that they are witnessing merely a fleeting moment in time.”
“Grace Mellow: Not For Show” features a selection of Mellow’s more experimental figurative drawings.
The work was created in New York City. Mellow uses gouache and pastel, plays with line weight and blocks of color to capture what feel like intimate and passing moments. “These drawings were never intended to be shown,” says Mellow. She describes this body of work as “visual amusements, inspired by the burlesque and cabaret performers who sat for them–quirky individuals with a rare joie de vivre and a talent for remaining motionless for 20 minutes at a time.”
Group shows featuring miniature delights continue to abound this holiday season, with the latest display of brilliance coming to us from Vergennes, Vermont. Whose works can you expect to see?
Have you finished your holiday shopping for that special art collector and connoisseur in your life? If not, Northern Daughters Gallery in Vergennes, Vermont, is currently showing a range of outstanding works in miniature that will both brighten your day and make your holiday gift list shorter.
“more light” features small works from seven artists working in watercolor, monoprint, oil painting and collage. Anne Cady, Pamela Smith and Cameron Schmitz have been exhibiting at Northern Daughters since the opening of the gallery in August. Rebecca Kinkead, Sobelman Cortapega, Katie Loesel, and Bonnie Baird are showing at NoDa for the first time.
VERGENNES — A Vergennes duo has big plans for a small gallery that throws open its doors this Friday.
Northern Daughters is the art gallery owned and operated by Justine Jackson and Sophie Pickens, lifelong friends who have endeavored to share their lifelong appreciation for art by creating a space where they can showcase all sorts of work.
Kids who grow up in Vermont often spread their wings and take off for the big city. So it can be cause for celebration when those fledglings return — particularly when they put down new roots with a local business. That's exactly what Justine Jackson, 30, and Sophie Pickens, 31, did, opening an art gallery in Vergennes called Northern Daughters — NoDa for short.
