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. Call first, or by appointment Contact curator, Dian Parker:
