|Studio interior (Gerald Auten)|
Artist Gerald Auten is showing his large abstract graphite drawings at The Studio through May 30th. Auten, whose work is also currently on exhibit at Hood Museum, is an award-winning artist and faculty member at Dartmouth College. The surfaces of Auten's work are lovely, rich, and deep, and take months to develop. To allow viewers to fully appreciate the drawings, the work will be pinned directly to the gallery wall at The Studio without the intervention of traditional framing with glass. An opening reception will be Thursday April 18th from 5-7pm at The Studio, 50 Canal Street.
Contact The Studio for more information, or with questions. 603-455-8008

See you at The Studio - a little out of the way, a lot out of the ordinary!

Artist Kirk Membry sees things in a big way. In his professional photography practice he is contracted by organizations such as the Mount Washington Observatory and NBC Sports to do 360 degree panoramic photos or "panos". In "Terra Vegrandis", his current exhibit, he takes the big picture and shrinks it to create the "tiny earth" prints that are featured.
In images that may conjure the familiar cover illustration of "The Little Prince", he gives viewers a playfully disorienting look at the world. The scale and perspective are both delightful and a little disarming. I think you'll have fun exploring these little worlds.
There is an opening reception for the artist this Saturday, March 16th, from 11am to 2pm. "Terra Vegrandis" is at The Studio through April 13th. Regular hours are 10am to 5pm Wednesday through Friday, Saturday 10am-3pm. For an appointment at another time, or with any questions, please call 455-8008.

Artist Elizabeth Obelenus opens the 2013 Exhibit Calendar for The Studio
From the artist's statement:
"Navigation, journaling, journals, storytelling, nighttime, the Milky Way, rivers that have been dammed for industrial progress and women as an extraordinary power in nature are themes that have informed my artwork for several years. I have also worked with the image of crows as magical creatures because of their intelligence and their dark bodies, and their preference to hang around human habitation. The dark and crows have been powerful images of mystery for my art.
I have created a fictional character named The Saintly Tourist, whose journey is based on Lewis and Clark’s expedition out west, following rivers and camping out for two years in western America. I was enthralled by their story and the journals they kept and the relatively peaceful passage through other people’s lands. The Saintly Tourist is someone who is respectful and reverent toward the landscapes she passes through. I create objects, usually 3-dimensional, often using found objects to evoke aspects of her story. The artwork, rather than being a literal transcript, is meant to be an evocative, poetic reference toward the Tourist’s journey."
"Enchanted Encampment" is on view through February 2nd at The Studio. There is a reception for the artist Saturday January 12th from 11 am to 2 pm, with live music by Abbie Morin beginning at noon. Contact The Studio with questions or for more information.
