WILDLANDS Exhibition Opens

5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
The Great Hall
100 River St
Springfield, VT
 

In the 19th century, American landscape painters gave people a glimpse into the magic of wild places. Long before the days of film, they helped spur the public call for preservation of wilderness rather than exploitation for resources.

WILDLANDS, an exhibition opening on October 12 at the Great Hall, 100 River Street in Springfield, VT, celebrates our public lands and national parks, and the beauty and experiences we enjoy in our publicly owned wild spaces. The show’s intention is to put a spotlight on preservation and how societies come to value and live in balance with natural resources in a time of climate change, development, and political stresses.

The 10 artists in WILDLANDS share a deep love of the land and capture the breadth and feel and temporal fragility of open spaces in their art.

Artists include:
Susan Abbott, Marshfield, VT
Rich Cofrancesco, Springfield VT
Walter Cudnohufsky, Ashfield, Massachusetts
Ailyn Hoey, Rockingham VT
Joan Hoffmann, S. Royalton, VT
Jessica Houston; Montreal, Quebec
Charlie Hunter, Bellows Falls, VT
Pat Musick, Manchester Center, VT
Oliver Schemm, Grafton, VT
James Urbaska, Newfane, VT

The public is invited to meet the artists at a free catered reception on October 12 from 5:30 to 7 pm. Several of the artists will speak about their work.

With a soaring 25-foot ceiling and clerestory windows, the 150-foot-long by 45-foot-wide public art space is unique in the region, and accommodates very large artwork and sculpture.

The main entrance to the Great Hall is off of Pearl Street, although the entire complex is called One Hundred River Street. The Great Hall can also be entered from One Hundred River Street. A pedestrian bridge crosses the Black River directly into the Center. There is plenty of parking at either entrance.

The exhibition runs through March 30, 2018. The Great Hall can be viewed from 9 to 6 pm weekdays; there are docents on Fridays from 1 to 4 pm to explain the history of the building (the former Fellows Gear Shaper Factory). The Great Hall will also be open on Saturday, October 14 from 11 to 3 to celebrate Vermont’s Statewide Open Studio weekend.
