EXHIBITS

Through Dec. 16: Gerald Auten: Graphite Insomnia. Opening Reception October 20, Saturday, 4-6 pm. Gerald Auten uses powdered graphite or graphite pencils on dense, smooth hot-pressed paper or onto the back of old museum posters and postcards. To the powdered graphite, he adds a bonding element, WD40, turpentine, or linseed oil, often buffing the surface. The work takes many months to achieve the dense metallic, oily surfaces. The affect is luminous, deeply saturated, mysterious and mischievous. Auten is a senior lecturer in Studio Art at Dartmouth College, where he teaches drawing, architecture, and senior seminar. White River Gallery, 35 South Windsor Street, South Royalton. 498-8438, Monday-Friday, 10 am – 4 pm.

    Compass Music and Arts Center, Jones Drive, Brandon, VT, United States

    Following a ten year period designing for Hallmark, Belmont artist Stephanie Stouffer had a 35 year career as a freelance artist. She designed more than 1,500 original gouache paintings used for licensing by companies like Caspari, Certified International, and Peking Handicrafts.

    With a personal, first-hand experience of truly earning a living as a freelance artist, Stouffer will give a Gallery Talk at the Compass Music and Arts Center, as part of her current exhibit ‘The Creative World of Stephanie Stouffer’, on Sunday, October 2 at 2:00pm. The artist will share both the creative compromises and rewards of a freelance career in licensing, acknowledging the role her time with Hallmark took in preparing her for her chosen path. She will discuss the demands and frustrations of staying ‘on top’ of the market, of staying creatively fresh and innovative while meeting the commercial interests and time demands of manufacturers, but also why she feels her work proved to be so appealing and successful.   

    The Compass Music and Arts Center is located in Park Village at 333 Jones Dr. Brandon VT, 05733 (Park Village used to be the Brandon Training School, located 1.5 miles north of downtown Brandon off of Arnold District Rd.). www.cmacvt.org
