    Artists to Watch 2019

    Tools

    Through Feb. 28

    Talk about meta curation. For this exhibition at the Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery, Vermont Art Guide editor Ric Kasini Kadour recruited nine other art professionals to each choose, in turn, an artist they deem “watchable.” Given the sheer quantity of capable artists in Vermont, the winnowing alone must have been challenging. In the end, the 10 chosen artists represent a diverse approach to contemporary art in a variety of mediums. They are: Sarah Amos, Clark Derbes, Hasso Ewing, Andrew Frost, Sally Gil, Sean Hunter Williams, Elizabeth Nagle, Andrew Orr, Rhonda Ratray and Jackson Tupper. at Spotlight Gallery in Montpelier.

Wood Gallery in Montpelier. In fact, “Almanac 4” — inspired by Februa, the ancient season of midwinter — earned a people’s choice award. In addition to text and painting, the quilt-like piece repurposes cotton swabs, old newspapers, denim, birch bark, salt packets and metal spouts. at T.W. Wood Gallery in Montpelier.
