Ron Prigat 

When: May 18-June 5 2019
The U.S.-based, Israeli-born painter, currently a staff member at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, exhibits works in a show titled “Consider the Source” in the Center’s Red Mill Gallery. He explains the title thus: “Were we to have a forensic investigation in order to understand how a work of art came into being, we’d need to examine not only the physical application of materials, but more importantly the causal chain of events, thoughts, influences and desires that brought it to being.” But one needn’t dive that deeply into forensics to appreciate the mystery of the paintings on view, which Prigat deems as collectively a sort of self-portrait. “These images are meant to unfold slowly,” he suggests, “like a beloved poem, or an old friend.”
