Edgewater opens exhibit with public reception
Are you ready for art receptions again? Yes!
Edgewater Gallery at the Falls will be hosting their first in-person exhibit reception since the pandemic put a stop to in-person gatherings. The local gallery will host the reception on Friday, June 4, from 5-7 p.m., to announce the opening of Hannah Bureau’s new work, on view June 1-July 31. This event is free and open to the public; registration preferred by calling 802-458-0098 or email [email protected]. Cocktails and light refreshments will be served in the gallery and on the deck overlooking the falls.
Bureau achieves a balance of landscape and abstraction in her painting. She edits the layers of fields, forests and water, down to what she sees as the essential shapes and planes of the composition, and then creates depth and a dreamlike quality through the use of a palette made up of subtle grays that she pushes toward warm and cool tones and is punctuated by more defined areas of deep color. There is a looseness in her gesture where remnants of her process are exposed and further enhance the intimacy and dream quality of the painting. As Bureau edits and adds layers upon layers of shape and tone, landscapes emerge with a feeling of limitless depth and sense of place.
“Exploring the way landscape fits together in a patchwork of intersecting fields inspired this body of work; agriculture fields as well as fields of color and shape overlapping and intersecting,” Bureau writes of her newest collection for Edgewater. “Sometimes these fields are best described with a hard edge and sometimes with ethereal and soft passages designed to suggest a distant view.”
