    Art Hop Juried Show

    Art Hop Juried Show

    Tools

    Through Nov. 30

    Burlington’s annual South End Art Hop ended two weeks ago, but its traditional juried show didn’t — you can see it, at least during limited occasions, through November 30. What’s not traditional is the venue: the Amy E. Tarrant Gallery at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts. That’s why the hours are limited; the Tarrant does not have a full-time gallery staff. Though the exhibit was open for the three days of the Hop, September 6 to 8, now viewers can see it only prior to MainStage shows or by appointment. Here’s a tip: It’s worth making an appointment. Juried by Brent Beamon of the Flowers Gallery in New York City, the exhibit includes some strong work and is quite diverse in mediums and styles. It’s clear that Beamon favored artworks that make a statement. Or, as he puts it, “[I’m] drawn not only to an artist’s technical ability but also to their point of view.” The first-place winner is a photograph by Emmanuel Christian Tedjasukmana, titled “Myopia: Harming in Order to Heal,” in which an older woman is lying amid a jumble of medical debris (pictured). Vanessa Compton’s second-place collage painting, “A Night at the Garden,” depicts what appears to be a Nazi/white supremacist rally. And though the third-place winner, a black-and-white photograph by Orah Moore, is far more benign, the image of Vermont dairy farmer George Woodard putting out hay for “the girls” certainly speaks to hard work and devotion. According to Christy Mitchell, director of the South End Arts and Business Association, the people’s choice votes have been tallied — and resulted in a tie. Viewers went for a moody watercolor-and-gouache piece titled “Emergence,” by Sam Wyatt; and “Auto-Warming,” an apocalyptic CGI print by John Douglas. at Amy E. Tarrant Gallery in Burlington (map).

    Through Jan. 11, 2020

    It’s increasingly common for artists to take up the cause of endangered species, and for good reason. But perhaps not many use the medium of ceramics. In an exhibition titled “the animals are innocent” at Middlebury’s Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History, Maryland artist, author and environmentalist Dana Simson presents ceramic boats as well as paintings featuring animals and a message. Unlike grim images of starving polar bears and plastic-entangled turtles, however, Simson’s works are gaily colorful and kind of adorable. But if her folk-art style is beguiling, her goal is serious: to show that animals are losing habitat and food resources, and suffering as a result of pollution and climate change. at Henry Sheldon Museum of Vermont History in Middlebury.
