She has worked in commercial photography since 1977 including a position as a publicity photographer for PBS. She is the founder of Haymaker Press. According to Orah, “I have been studying the lifestyle of Montana ranchers, from the romantic to the mundane.

Through Aug. 25: Colorful Musings by Rob Hitzig at Axel’s Gallery and Frame Shop. Titled “Colorful Musings,” Rob’s work explores the surprising interactions of colors and shapes through geometric abstraction. Although not easily categorized, the art rides a mysterious line between the painting and sculpture — while some pieces have physical depth, all the work, even pieces that are completely flat, have visual depth. Rob is inspired by wonder and curiosity, seeking to discover what happens when things just happen, with the hope that the work generates the same experience for the viewer. An Artist Reception is planned for Friday, July 13th from 6-8pm. This event is free and open to the public. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. Axel’s Gallery and Frame Shop is open Tuesday – Friday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm and Saturdays 10:00 – 4:00 pm. Images from work in the show attached.

    The first artist to bring in the New Year at the Vermont Supreme Court Gallery is Lark Upson from Marshfield. The show will run from January 4 until March 31.  An opening reception will take place on January 12, from 4 to 7 pm.

    In 2005 Upson began turning her attention to oil painting, especially portraits. Her human subjects, mostly regional models are staged in traditional poses. Each work displays the everyday complexity and individuality that only quality portraiture can convey.

    Upson also has a strong interest in the protection of our wildlife and environmental preservation. In this exhibit, she presents full-size renderings of Lions 4ft x 6ft and Empire Penguins 46”X 36”. She will be displaying portraits of four species on the verge of extinction. Beside each painting is information on the status of their populations, climate impact on their habitat and what can be done to help save them. Her intention is to raise awareness of the decline in population of many endangered species. Upson’s wish is for other artists to join with her in depicting the many species at risk.

    Lark also has a diverse background as a furniture maker and an interior and architectural designer.
