New exhibit brings ‘more light’ to Vergennes

Northern Daughters welcomes a new exhibit to their gallery on Main Street in Vergennes. “more light” opened on Dec. 1 and will be on view through Jan. 28. The show features small works from six artists who work in a range of media, including watercolor, oil painting, encaustic and collage. Exhibiting artists include Anne Cady, Pamela Smith and Sobelman Cortapega — who are regularly exhibited at Northern Daughters; as well as three artists exhibiting with NoDa for the first time: Edward Holland, Julia Jensen and Molly Bosley.
Edward Holland is an abstract artist based in New York City who works in a wide variety of materials including acrylic and oil paint, colored pencil, graphite and collage.
“I am not interested in depicting a specific narrative,” he said of his artwork. “Instead, I am interested in establishing a space where narrative can be developed.”
Holland received his Bachelor’s degree from Syracuse University and his Master’s from New York University. His artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries including Peter Marcelle Gallery in Bridgehampton, N.Y., Gerald Peters Gallery in Santa Fe, N.M., and New York City, and Phyllis Weston Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. Edward’s artwork may also be found in private collections nationwide.
Julia Jensen is a Vermont-based landscape artist working in encaustic.
“Paintings exist at the meeting ground between the external world and one’s internal, emotional, and spiritual responses to it,” said Jensen. “For me, landscape is the perfect point of access for this exploration.” A graduate of Tulane University with a Bachelor’s in Art History. Jensen has been painting for 20 years.
Molly Bosley is a mixed media artist based in Vermont. Bosley says she strives to create “art that is arresting, yet familiar, like a memento you find tucked away in between the pages of an old book.” Indeed, at first glance her patterned paper-cuts are decorative and nostalgic, only after closer examination do the modern elements and unexpected stories layered into the details emerge. Bosley is a graduate of University of Vermont, with a Bachelor’s in Studio Art. She has exhibited nationally and gained recognition in online publications, as well as landing the cover of the Random House book titled, “The Aviary.”
This exhibit will host an opening reception on Friday, Dec. 8, from 5-8 p.m. There will be live music from Nate Wallace-Gusakov and Jacob Weiss, and cocktails from Barr Hill Gin.
