“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away” Eudora Welty

Kathy began making photographs seriously 5 years ago when she joined the online photographic community called blipfoto (www.blipfoto.com). The purpose of blip is to journal your life with one picture a day. She has found that the discipline of taking a picture everyday and posting it has given her the confidence to experiment, realize that every picture isn’t the best, and recognize the moment when you have created a wonderful image. She loves finding a moment in time to keep it from running away.

At the opening reception, a wine tasting will be hosted by Montview Vineyard in Corinth, established in 2008 on a farm that was built in the 1830’s. All grapes used in their wines are grown in Corinth. At this tasting they will have Marquette, a red wine made from Marquette grapes and Pas De Deux, a blend of two white grapes, Prarie Star and Frontenac Gris.

Linda Bryan’s show, “Blue x 2” will be featured in the Gallery at The Space On Main for the month of December. Come visit with Linda during the opening reception on December 7th (First Friday) and for public viewing hours 3:00–5:00pm on subsequent Fridays throughout the month.

With Blue x 2, Bryan combines her love for cyanotypes, an alternative photographic process, with different printmaking techniques, to create one of a kind, handmade images.

Cyanotype is one of the first photographic printing processes, invented by Sir John Herschel in 1842. In 1843, Anna Atkins published the first book to use photographs instead of illustrations, “British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions”. Using UV light for printing and developed in water, cyanotype is a very safe photographic process that does not require a lot of equipment.

Ms. Bryan has a BFA in Studio Arts from Johnson State College and an MFA in Photography from the Academy of Art University. She teaching both digital and darkroom photography through the Vermont State Colleges and has taught workshops in different photographic techniques for all ages. She still uses film and collects vintage cameras.

Stephanie Gordon’s show, “Root & Branch: Encaustic Paintings” will be featured in the Gallery at The Space On Main for the month of November. Come visit with Stephanie during public viewing hours 3:00–5:00pm on Fridays throughout the month.

Stephanie Gordon has been an artist and craftsperson her whole life. She attended the University of Michigan (BFA cum laude). She spent her junior year in Aix-en-Provence, France studying French culture and art.

Stephanie has taught art to all ages, from kindergarten to adult. She taught art at Hanover High School for 18 years before retiring. She currently teaches community art classes for adults and teens. She exhibits work locally and regionally. Her artwork is in many private collections from one coast to the other

The artworks in this exhibit are mixed media encaustic paintings. Encaustic painting is a very ancient and beautiful method of creating luminous art from pigmented molten waxes called encaustics. Encaustics have been used for painting since at least the 1st century BCE in Egypt. The word encaustic comes from the Greek word “enkaustikos”, meaning “to burn in”. Each layer of melted wax must be fused to the one underneath with heat. Encaustics are well suited for mixed media work as objects and other materials can be embedded in the wax.
