Celebrating the Art of Sculpture at Barn Workshop
in Danvers, Massachusetts now through September 13th

Following Your Dream by Melanie Zibit.

The current exhibition at the Barn Workshop, presented as part of the yearlong celebration of their 40th anniversary, is packed with so many pieces of astonishing art that one place can't fit them all. Celebrating the Art of Sculpture is behind held at two locations in Danvers, Massachusetts and will feature more than 45 works by 29 artists and both indoor and outdoor sculptures. This exhibition is being held at the Barn Workshop Fine Arts and Crafts School at 245 Maple Street, as well as the Peabody Institute Library of Danvers at 15 Sylvan Street. Library Director Alan Thibeault said, "The Peabody Institute is extremely pleased to host Celebrating the Art of Sculpture in collaboration with the Barn Workshop. Our beautiful grounds are a perfect place to view unique and interesting works of art. I hope that our citizens enjoy this summertime treat." Visitors to the exhibition will be able to experience monumental works as well as others pieces in different media. It is this personal and intimate quality of sculpture that makes the art form so palpable. The ability to examine each piece and its lines, structure and materials will help viewers connect to the sculpture and intuit the artists' intentions. "Even though the sculptures are very different, their size, structure and placement complement each other and create a cohesive presentation," said Michael Guadagno, president of the Barn Workshop and curator/organizer of the exhibition. The artists included in the exhibition are from all over New England and New York State and have exhibited both nationally and internationally. Some of the featured artists include Lindley Briggs, Nancy Diefenbach, Jerry Holmes, Barrett Kern, Claudia Olds Goldie, Kim Radochia, Dale Rogers, Scott Stoll, Melanie Zibit and many more. Celebrating the Art of Sculpture is on view now through Friday, September 13th at both locations. The Barn Workshop is also hosting an Open Studios on Saturday, July 6th from 10am-4pm. There will be demonstrations, tours of the studio and works for sale.

Ravine at Lori Warner Studio/Gallery
in Chester, Connecticut July 13th through September 30th

                Ravine 1 by Kate Cordsen.

Solo exhibitions at Lori Warner Studio/Gallery don't happen very often, particularly because Warner herself carefully considers the integrity and process of each artist's work. That's why her connection to the photography of Kate Cordsen has led to the gallery's upcoming exhibition, Ravine. "I felt an immediate excitement the first time I saw Kate Cordsen's photographic work," Warner said. "Her huge, dramatic prints are widely collected and are often purchased by big name designers." Cordsen's success has much to do with her instincts in emotional expression and transcendence. Her landscapes are, at first glance, simply meditative, but reveal impassioned and dramatic depths upon second and third looks. In a statement about her art, Cordsen said, "My work boils down to a few fibers of form and emotion. I love the structure and shape of the landscape as well as the innocence. I hope that is conveyed in my work." Though she credits Whistler and Klimt as some of her most significant influences, much of Cordsen's intuition and style comes from her travels. She lived in Manila as a young child when her father was a Peace Corps leader and later, before graduate school, in Japan for two years. "I am drawn to watery scenes particularly where the land and water meet." Despite her worldliness, Cordsen has an intimate relationship to the Connecticut River Valley. "I have seen some extraordinary places these last few years but, truthfully, none that inspire as much as the Connecticut River Valley," she continued. The artist walks the trails in Lyme and Essex almost daily. "It is very impressive how much preserved land there is in this region. This series, Ravine, started on the Ravine Trail in Lyme but ultimately was shot all over Connecticut and New York." If you'd like to see landscape through the eyes and lens of Kate Cordsen, Ravine will be on view Saturday, July 13th through Monday, September 30th at Lori Warner Studio/Gallery.

Rejuvenation at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery
in Shelburne, Vermont now through August 13th

                          Dogwood (White-Red Tips) No. 2 by Jeri Lynn Eisenberg.

Summer brings with it new weather, nature and sights, and what often accompanies these is a fresh breath of air. Whether we feel refreshed by the sun that dances off our skin or excited for vacations and experiences, this season pumps new life into all that surrounds us. A similar occurrence is happening right now at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in their 22nd Annual Summer Group Show. This year, the gallery is showing Rejuvenation, a show of astonishing works by over 15 artists that resuscitate a desire within us that we never knew we had. Some of the featured artists in the exhibition include Annelein Beukenkamp, Annemie Curlin, Carolyn Enz Hack, Philip Hagopian, Lynn Rupe and Gowri Savoor. Rejuvenation also features Hudson Valley based photographer Jeri Lynn Eisenberg, whose work focuses on the natural beauty of ordinary scenes near her home. "It is, rather, the common wooded landscape of my day to day life that captures my attention," Eisenberg explained. Of her method, she said, "The very soft-focused, painterly images are printed digitally on Japanese Kozo paper, with the barest hint of color in certain values, reminiscent of traditional split-toned photographs. The large-scale prints are infused with encaustic medium, making the delicate paper at once both more translucent and better able to stand on its own." As described here, both Eisenberg and her process are unique, so don't miss out on this opportunity to see her work for yourself. Rejuvenation is showing now through Tuesday, August 13th at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne, Vermont.
