Ink Languages

Artists: Patty Hudak and Chalice Mitchell
Moderator: Alison Crites, SVAC’s Manager of Exhibitions & Interpretive Engagement
Date: Tuesday, October 27
Time: 7 – 8 p.m.
Cost: $5.00

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 SVAC, 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.

This program will take place virtually on ZOOM. One hour before the program begins, registered participants will receive the Zoom link via email.

Southern Vermont Arts Center, Women Take Wilson

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.




Southern Vermont Art Center, Yester House Solo Exhibitions

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.  

More information, hours, and directions can be found at the Southern Vermont Art Center website.

Thank you!  Looking forward to seeing you and hearing your response.
