Them, Us & You at Studio Place Arts
in Barre, Vermont now through April 16

                            Encountering - The Space Between by Carolyn Enz Hack.

Interested in different points of view and the way we interact with one another? Them, Us & You is currently being shown at Studio Place Arts in Barre, Vermont and addresses the way our species connect with one another. With work from artists worldwide, including Vermont, Denmark and France among others, the exhibit features diverse perspectives. The exhibit showcases a variety of artists including Carolyn Enz Hack, Phil Whitman and Robyn Hasty. Focusing on questions regarding how we connect with ourselves, one another and our world, artists work in a variety of mediums including mixed media, sculpture, ballpoint pen on paper and oil on pane. Each artist uses their individual craft in order to create a cohesive body of work while exhibiting one's individuality and illuminating how singularity can develop into solidarity. The Studio Place Arts Call to Artists stated, "While occupying a single earth, many generations of people have amplified their differences from others and the similarities within their own identified groups." This brings attention to the ever present US versus THEM mindset that is prevalent within our society today. Them, Us & You features 24 artists from America and around the world and through different cultural interpretations and a variety of mediums, gives a deeper insight into how we engage with one another. It's important to look at this not only in terms of our past, but our present and future as well. Them, Us & You is running through April 16 at Studio Place Arts in Barre, Vermont. The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Pawtucket Printmakers at Gallery 175
in Pawtucket, Rhode Island now through April 30

            Mountain Stream, Summer by Regina Partridge.

Gallery 175 is pleased to exhibit works from a variety of artists affiliated with Studio Goddard Partridge, a space founded by artists Elizabeth Goddard and Regina Partridge originally as their own workspace which then expanded to serve the needs of their fellow artists. Established in 1999, Studio Goddard Partridge serves a variety of creative needs and provides artists with the tools they need to produce, including a cutting-edge etching press used to create much of the work shown in the gallery among woodcuts, monotypes and intaglio prints. Goddard and Partridge are both technically-trained artists and have an extensive show portfolio. Goddard's work has been shown in galleries and corporations across the country including the Boston Athenaeum in Massachusetts, the University of Connecticut, H2O Restaurant in New York and Bice Restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada. Viewers can find Partridge's work at corporations including Cambridge Savings Bank in Boston and Watertown, Johnson & Wales University and Women & Infants Hospital in Rhode Island. Both artists focus on nature within their work. While Goddard works in both color and black and white in a variety of techniques, including woodcuts, monotype prints and oil paintings, Partridge works primarily in monotypes and pastels. Each artist has an original perspective of nature which can be distinguished between Goddard's sharp lines and abstraction of her subject and Partridge's bright colors and softer edges in her natural landscapes. Pawtucket Printmakers is running through April 30 at Gallery 175 in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free of charge to the public.

Planning The Improbable, Sketching The Impossible at Gallery 321
in Somerville, Massachusetts now through March 26

    Featured work from Planning The Improbable, Sketching The Impossible.

Visiting Somerville, Massachusetts? Stop in to Gallery 321 to see an abundance of ideas from a variety of artists. Planning The Improbable, Sketching The Impossible focuses on the work that artists create in their minds but may not have the means to create in actual form. Curator Mitch Shiles notes the importance of acknowledging artists' ideas on paper and how "physical, monetary, or social inhibitions" can sometimes make it improbable, or impossible, for the sketches on paper to come to life. This exhibition not only focuses on different struggles, constraints and ambitions that vary from artist to artist, but also the extremely different processes artists go through to create their work. Planning The Impossible, Sketching The Improbable displays a diverse collection of work, including clay models, pencil and ink sketches, and notebook ideas that have not been brought to life. The work represents a variety of real-life traumas, including the death of a loved one, the loss of a relationship and the death of a pet, all of which are expressed through sketches and finished pieces that represent what the artist was feeling like in a particular moment. Featuring work from artists Rachel Eng, Leah Medin, Will Preman, Trevor Bennett and Kelcy Chase Folsom, Planning The Improbable, Sketching The Impossible features a diverse group of artists who manifest their emotions through art. The exhibition runs through March 27. Gallery 321 is open Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment. For more information visit Gallery 321.
