Exhibition on View: September 5 – November 30, 2020 Opening Reception: Saturday, September 5 from 3 – 5 pm
The Southern Vermont Arts Center, in Manchester, VT, will exhibit my 2018-2019 Vermont Creation Grant Project, There, Through the Broken Branches, Go.
The title, taken from the WB Yeats poem, Two Trees, is an invitation to enter another world. This large scale installation (over 45 yards of fabric, 9 feet wide) invites us to contemplate the here and now, before our final passing into other worlds.
The installation will be located in the staircase of the contemporary galleries in the Wilson Center, naturally lit from behind, with the fabric suspended and cascading down the stairs.
For more information, hours, and directions, please visit the SVAC website.

Ink Languages: A Conversation with Chalice Mitchell, Patty Hudak, and Alison Crites
Artists: Patty Hudak and Chalice Mitchell Moderator: Alison Crites, SVAC’s Manager of Exhibitions & Interpretive Engagement
Join artists Patty Hudak and Chalice Mitchell for an engaging online conversation about how living and working abroad in China and Japan fundamentally changed their artistic practice.
In particular, both artists developed a personal “ink language” through their exposure to, study of, and experimentation with the tradition of ink painting, which first flourished in China during the 600s and was introduced to Japan during the 1300s.
Patty and Chalice, whose artwork is currently on view at Southern Vermont Arts Center, will bring their memories and experiences to life through sharing images and stories. Alison Crites, SVAC’s Manager of Exhibitions & Interpretive Engagement, will moderate the program. There will be time at the end for audience members to ask questions.
I am delighted to be exhibiting my recent work at the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, Vermont. Beautifully situated, the Southern Vermont Arts Center has put into place CoVid safe measures to protect us, while enriching us with its thoughtfully curated art exhibitions. The opening for my exhibition is on August 22, 2020 from 3-5pm. There will be a variety of solo exhibitions opening on that afternoon. However, don’t feel pressured to attend the opening–the exhibition will continue until October 4. There will be spectacular Fall days in Vermont when a trip to the Southern Vermont Arts Center will be peaceful and still, and you will be able to enjoy the artwork without being in a crowd.
TheScreen and Beyond is an online project originating from an open call conceived by Nick West and Yuka Otani for the Art Byte Critique collective. The world is changing rapidly due to COVID-19 pandemic. The artists participating in this e-book explore the theme of “Screen” from their perspectives. Through creating artworks, they try to find hints for surviving a world where the future is uncertain.
This is Hamilton Gallery’s sixth invited artists exhibition thematically drawing upon a major poem by W B Yeats and also timed to coincide with Ireland’s Decade of Commemoration. “Among School Children” comprises an individual work from each of 115 invited artists.
Exhibition curator and Vermont Art Guide Editor Ric Kasini Kadour invited Vermont art professionals to answer the question: “Which Vermont artists are creating contemporary art that commands our attention?”
Ten artists were selected from these responses. They are featured in Vermont Art Guide #11, and were exhibited at the Spotlight Gallery from February 2020 until the Covid-19 pandemic hit.
Ric explains that “The deeper purpose of Vermont Artists to Watch goes beyond a magazine feature, an exhibition, and artist boosterism. The project is an opportunity to discover artists, revisit familiar ones, and develop a deeper appreciation of visual arts in the state.”
