Edgewater Gallery opens first juried show June 9

MIDDLEBURY — Edgewater Gallery on the Green announces its first Juried Show and Competition, which will be on display for the month of June. The competition was fierce, with over 200 works submitted by more than 100 oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel artists from all over the northeast.
“How does one whittle 215 beautiful and interesting paintings down to a select 30?” Juror Andrea Rosen, curator at the Fleming Museum of Art at the University of Vermont asked. She felt one could interpret the term broadly, but that she found herself using the show title and prompt “The Color of Light” to make such difficult choices. “I focused on works that directly expressed this idea in some way,” she said.
“The evocative powers of color and light have been the focus of so many great artists throughout history, who spent their lives experimenting with techniques to master both effects,” said Juror Claudia Fiks, art professional in the Boston area. “The final artworks selected bring an interesting investigation of light and atmosphere, depicted in abstract and representational styles. The viewer will be invited to enjoy a sensory opportunity, which encourages contemplation of the subtleties of lights and forms.”
Edgewater on the Green will host an opening reception on Friday, June 9 from 5-7 p.m. The jurors will be present to make the announcement of winners in Best in Show, second place and third place. Light bites will be available from Grapevine Grille, Drop In Brewery will be offering beer tastings, and live music will be performed by Simply Acoustic, an unplugged duo covering the classics.
