    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).
