Diane Sophrin | Studio Place Arts | Shows | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice

Diane Sophrin 

When: Through June 29
Phone: 802-479-7069
Borders are much in the news these days, but Diane Sophrin has been routinely crossing them for some 15 years. That is, she has split her time between the capital cities of Vermont and Hungary. In Montpelier, she explains on her website, she works intensively but quietly; in Budapest, she participates in an active arts scene and exhibits in solo and group shows. Currently, though, Sophrin is revealing her work close to home: at Barre’s Studio Place Arts. In the modest third-floor gallery, visitors can find “Present Continuous: Commentary and Form.” If that title is enigmatic, Sophrin’s scroll-like abstractions are hardly less so. With text drawn and painted on layered, stitched paper, her pieces present a “personal visual language with which to comment, define and respond to world events and realities,” she writes. For her, she adds, “Process as subject has taken on significant importance.” It is left for viewers, perhaps, to navigate their own internal poetry.
