Vermont Events in June


Blades Will Sprout 6/14/18 - 7/29/18

Northern Daughters is pleased to present Blades Will Sprout, on view at the gallery’s 221 Main St. location in Vergennes, Vermont from June 14th through July 29th with an opening reception on June 22nd from 5-8pm. This summer show features the work of Anne Cady, Julia Jensen and Jessica Smith, three artists who use familiar landscapes as an entrance point to creating art, but have very little else in common. Anne Cady's distinctive oil paintings are inspired by the Vermont countryside that surrounds her. Her paintings are playful and bold, full of vibrant color and spirit. This body of work features all new paintings, include works filled with the brilliant green of the first growth of Vermont’s early spring, and the lush brilliance of fields after the first cut. She also mixes in pieces wild with color, red mountains and rolling hills stretching back into open sky’s typical of her local valley landscape. Though quite a departure stylistically, Julia Jensen work is also a rich collision of the external and internal world of the artist. Her work brings blurred, lush, almost dreamlike visions of landscape to the viewer. She says “When I am working I try to leave the surface as open as I can for as long as I can, turning the panel this way and that, trying to keep subject out of it and work just with color and shape. Inevitably, somehow, a place begins to emerge.” A graduate of Tulane University with a BA in Art History, Jensen has been painting for 20 years. Sense of place is certainly a cornerstone of Jessica Smith’s work. Many of the paintings she is exhibiting in the current show feature landscapes viewed near or directly from her farm in a mountain valley, hillside in Southern Vermont. The profile of familiar mountains and hills dominate the her work compositionally, while her sparse paint application and muted color palette show the viewer the Vermont landscape through a lens unique to Smith. Her work, she says, is a way of processing comings and goings, and this group particularly is inspired by the seasons of change in the mountains.
