Too Many To Count.
August 13, 2015
There are so many artists packed into this blast that we couldn't even count them all. Well, that's only half true, because we did take the time to count them: 18—that's at least double what we normally feature. But when galleries are as ambitious as the ones featured below, who are we to limit the talent? If you're feeling like 18 isn't enough for you, no worries—we've got more coming. This weekend, August 15 & 16, is Andrew Devries' Open Studio Bronze Pour at River Studio in Middlefield, Massachusetts from 2-5pm. Also happening this weekend: South Coast Artists' 12th Annual Open Studio Tour. With all these events added on, there definitely has to be too many to count now.

Making Meaning at Drift Gallery
in Portsmouth, New Hampshire now through September 13
Beachfront Gambrel by Paul Pedulla, acrylic on canvas 30" x 30".
ow we make meaning can transcend boundaries of all kind—rules, obligations, memories and disciplines. The five featured artists in the current exhibition at Drift Contemporary Art Gallery
unpack what it means to create meaning, using their experience and expertise to guide them. M. Benjamin Herndon
experiments in his works by fusing the content of his creations with their orderly qualities: form, process, substance. These subtle and nuanced surfaces open a window through which onlookers are invited to a close and careful viewing, and provided a quieted, contemplative space. Emerging Rockland, Maine-based installation artist, Hannah Berta
, cuts away organic shapes from yards of "altered" muslin creating an intricate lace of mark-making using form, light and shadow. Her piece, 'Via Estrellas' will take center stage in the Main Gallery. The works of JT Bullitt
explore the invisible, inaudible and intangible forces that underlie human experience. He is especially fascinated by questions of time and memory, language and symbol and conscious and unconscious choice. In Jim Nickelson
's 'Pyrotechnics' series, the underpinning of the photographic work is an intense and abiding interest in science and nature. This interest manifests itself in Nickelson
's photography as he creates work based on the concept of the passage of time, work motivated by natural rhythms and cycles and patterns, work exploring the mysteries of nature or work simply inspired by the wonder of the natural world. In The Loft Gallery, Paul Pedulla
's contemporary paintings begin with fresh ideas about space and place. What you see is a moment, often revealing a relationship between neighboring houses, a road and the landscape, the sky and the sea, figures in an environment or a window and the world it views. The drawings, paintings, prints, mixed media, photographs and installations in Making Meaning
are on view now through Sunday, September 13
at Drift Contemporary Art Gallery
at the Wentworth-Coolidge Mansion
historic site in Portsmouth.

People/Place: American Social Landscape Photography at Bennington Museum
in Bennington, Vermont August 15 through November 8
Albuquerque, New Mexico by Garry Winogrand, Gelatin silver print, � The Estate of Garry Winogrand.
ore than just a photography exhibition will be kicking off at Bennington Museum
this weekend. At its core, People/Place: American Social Landscape Photography, 1950-1980
is an exploration in wordless literature, an effort to unpack the irrational events society has to offer and arrange them into a revealing narrative. This special exhibition is the result of a collaborative effort between Bennington Museum
and Bennington College
to select photographs from the portfolios of Jonathan Brand
, John Hubbard
, Neil Rappaport
, Garry Winogrand
and Lee Friedlander
. "Each of these photographers explores the human condition within the public sphere, the social landscape. Careful framing and split second timing are key aspects of their practice, and we have selected a wide range of their best work," states Jonathan Kline
, Faculty Member at Bennington College
. Featured in the exhibit are black and white photographs from Brand
's October 1967 journey from Manhattan's Upper West Side to Bennington, Vermont. Hubbard
's photographs capture the lives of Bennington people as they worked and played 40 years ago, offering a glimpse into the lesser-known social aspects of the town. Photographs in "Bennington Visual Censes" provide a look into the life in Bennington in the late 1970s—all were a result of an assignment by Rappaport
to his students in how to let the camera be the bridge to the subject. Winogrand
's spontaneous images of everyday life frequently incorporate unusual camera angles along with implausible configurations of people within his viewfinder. Friedlander
is best known for complicating the viewing experience by the use of reflections and shadows, and using street signs and windows as framing devices. Each image in this exhibition provides a window that allows the viewer to look back in time and discover fragments of the sociopolitical, cultural and emotional landscape that shaped that period. People/Place: American Social Landscape Photography, 1950-1980
will be on view at Bennington Museum Saturday, August 15 through Sunday, November 8
Eight Artists at The Schoolhouse Gallery
in Provincetown, Massachusetts now through August 26
The seasons with Chandelier by Lauren Ewing, Spring 2014, coal dust on archival digital photo.
or much of this month, artwork at The Schoolhouse Gallery
is acting as stand-ins for the moments we find in nature when we come face-to-face with our natural boundaries and explorations. The following selected gallery artists all consider nature's interaction with society and the material world. Joanne Dugan
is a photographer who lives and works in New York City. Her work, created in New York City and on the Cape, explores the practice of looking deeply "through" daily life scenes, settings and objects that surround us. With the goal of translating the obvious into the precious and sublime, the shadows and light in Dugan
's photographs become symbols for various states of human consciousness. Lauren Ewing
is a sculptor and installation artist. Her art addresses the relationship of individuals to institutions, the collapse of nature into culture and the vast construct of material culture in relation to memory and desire. Many of her site sculptures and installations are polyvocal. They involve image, materiality, simulation, language, sound and unique electronic texts which are thematically provocative and richly poetic. Over the course of two decades, Ted Kincaid
has systematically subverted the notion of an objective photographic record. As his art continues to explore the play between painting and photography, Kincaid
is one of several artists creating a new painting informed by photo-imagery and a new photography influenced by painting. James Stanley
will present two new paintings that are part of considering his current home and terrain and incorporating the Outer Cape into his well-known constructed, painted worlds. Alongside these artists at The Schoolhouse Gallery
are four artists featured in a Director's Choice: Robin Bruch
, Nona Hershey
, Peik Larsen
and Michelle Weinberg
. All eight artists' works are on view now through Wednesday, August 26
at The Schoolhouse Gallery

August 10 - September 11, 2015
Reception: Thursday, August 13 6:00 - 8:00 pm / 7:00 pm learn the stories behind select artworks
SEE HOW LOSS FEELS
Grief may be a universal human emotion, but the expression of grief is highly individual, as evidenced by "Images of Grief and Healing" at the Chandler Gallery. The exhibit, juried by therapist and artist Emily Newmann and art educator Deborah Putnoi, presents artwork inspired by personal loss. The losses are many and varied, and each piece has a story of its own.
