Awards for Vermont Pastel Society Member Exhibit 2016

The following is a list of awards presented at the 2016 VPS Juried Exhibition at the Compass Music and Art Center.  Our appreciation goes out to Christine Ivers, the Judge of Awards for VPS.  She included a statement (below) regarding the exhibition in general.  

Each award listed, is followed by a statement from Christine Ivers about her impressions of the piece.  
Congratulations to all of our winners.  The exhibition is incredibly professional in appearance.

Juror’s Statement

First, I would like to thank VPS for giving me the opportunity to judge this wonderful show for awards. It was truly an honor and it was most difficult to choose the winners from so many wonderful pastels. From the moment I walked into your facility I knew I would be spending hours trying award only a few awards when I honestly could have handed out at least another five or six. The variety of styles, the skilled use of the medium, and the professional presentation of all of the artists involved made for a beautiful show and I commend all involved. I hope that you will continue to create more terrific work and help to educate others as to why we love to paint with pure pigment. Thank you so much again.

        Chris Ivers, PSA-MP, IAPS/MC



First Prize:
Diane Burns, “The Golden Hour”

As soon as I saw this painting I was awestruck with its dynamic composition and incredible use of color temperature. The vibrancy of light turning from the “magic light” of the sun to the subtle harmonies of beautiful shadows made me feel as if I were standing in the scene. The boldness and directional strokes pulled me to the destination that the artist intended. This painting was as incredible as “The Golden Hour” always is and is deserving of this show’s highest award. Kudos to the artist!




Second Prize:
Matthew Peake, “Overlook #26 Partners in Time”

Motion! Energy! The creative and imaginative way of looking at the world from a different angle made this composition filled with a circular motion of the figures, all the while in contrast to the geometric floor. The bold use of color complimented the piece, which kept me feeling that I was spying on the musicians and dancer from the balcony above. By truly “thinking out of the box” this artist has definitely found a creative niche that should inspire others to look at the world differently. Great job!

Third Prize:
Patti Braun, “Spring Run Off”

The dancing light on the waterfall contrasting the forest in luscious dark and vibrant color immediately drew my attention! The exceptional use of color choices in the lit and shadowed sections of the painting made me feel the perspective of the water and cascading rocks. I particularly loved the use of the violets in the shadows, which made what are normally overlooked supporting actors, such as the rocks, come alive with those delicious strokes of color. Excellent presentation as the wooden frame seemed to be part of the composition. Beautiful piece. Congratulations!


 Honorable Mention: The Philip M. Danylik Memorial Award sponsored by Christine Ivers
Jean Pollack, “KaBOOM….pshhhhhh….”

It wasn’t only the crashing wave or the excellent composition that drew me into the scene, it was the fantastic rim light on the rocks that spoke to me! The use of alizarin and violets against the warmth of the sand and sky is absolutely beautiful and kept me looking deeper into the areas that were almost imperceptible shadows. Motion and power contrasted by a serene sky and gentle sand makes for a powerful work. Totally enjoyed this terrific piece.

Honorable Mention: sponsored by Otter Creek Frame Shop of Middlebury
Carol Eberlein, “Sunshot”

The contrasting aspects of this painting were what drew me to it the moment I saw it. Bold, defining strokes, a spectrum of values and the flickers of light on the horizon and trees gave me the feeling that night was falling or that a storm might be coming in. I enjoyed trying to figure out which of those two scenarios this painting might be trying to convey, which I found interesting enough to make me linger with it. Striking is how I would describe the artist’s approach and I hope to see more of her work in the future. Congratulations!

Honorable Mention: sponsored by Phoenix Bookstore of Burlington
Kathrena Ravenhorst-Adams, “Autumn Reflection”

The abstract qualities and the freedom of the artist’s strokes were what first caught my attention in this work. The movement and serendipity that was achieved in this painting is wonderful! “Bouncing” light that created the bold reflections, the artist’s use of the extreme light and dark values, and the color temperatures that gave the piece depth, are a true testament to her skill as a painter. The simplicity and tone of the painting is beautiful yet difficult to achieve. I applaud Kathrena for creating such a memorable piece.

Honorable Mention: sponsored by Zephyr Designs of Brattleboro
Norma Jean Rollet, “Garden en Plein Air”


The atmospheric perspective in this painting is telling me much more about the artist’s ability to give her viewer a true taste of depth in a landscape. From the softness and coolness in the background hills to the crisp strokes that make the flowers in the foreground jump out at you in the composition, these techniques alone absolutely makes this painting worthy of recognition. Add to that the use of value and temperature to create a piece that is not only beautiful but shows just how beautiful the medium can be. Truly deserving on an award.

Art's Alive: 2016 VPS Member Exhibition; Main Street Landing, Burlington, VT - Participants, Awards and Photos


The VPS 2016 Member Exhibition is Spectacular - to say the least.  Below are some random photos within the list of 9 awards given during the reception on April 1, 2016.  Thanks to Judge Mickey Myers from the Bryan Memorial Art Gallery in Jeffersonville, VT, who took the time to write her carefully, crafted thoughts about each piece.   Also, below is the list of participants and their art which was requested by VPS members at the reception, to be shared with all VPS.

Awards:



  1. Most Luminous Landscape
Award donated by Mount Vision Pastel Company

Rodica Tilley
Winter Garden 4 PM

This piece has such an unusual luminosity to it.  At once it is sweeping, and it is intimate.  It pulls the viewer to what lies ahead at a distance, and it pulls the viewer back to the crunch of the ground under foot.    That ironic concept of a “Winter Garden” in the title explains why the luminosity of this piece provides more than just a seasonal picture – it provides the depth of the season itself.  


  1. Most Fluid Waterscape (Landscape)
Award donated by Dick Blick Art Materials

Wendy Soliday
Just Meandering

This award inspires idyll thoughts of meandering like a stream in the woods.  Wendy Soliday hands us the experience without the water.  You can tell from the first glance that she is on a meditative mission.  She doesn’t miss a detail, but she sees it with the relaxed vision of a mature and appreciative observer.  Don’t be fooled.  When Wendy meanders, there’s nothing diminuative about it. 
 

  1. Most Lively Still Life

Award donated by Art Works Frame Shop, So Burlington

There is not a still life in this exhibit per se, and so I have chosen to give this award to

Gwen Nagel
Bellagio Marina

There is an exquisite placement and arrangement of objects within this landscape – each object is unique and all together appear quite dense and plentiful, boats and houses and trees, in their own neighborhoods or enclaves.  All this abundance, and yet such serenity abounds in the entire picture – a remarkable feat.


  1. Most Figuratively Speaking

Awards donated by Rochester Art Supply and

 Michael Chesley Johnson

Matthew Peake
Figure Overlook #24   Gravitas

Shall we dance?  Shall I guess they are dancing a tango?  The angles, particularly of the sitting figures, speak to that Latin movement and the floor grid is reminscent of an acordian.  The couple is intimate; the figure on the left is alone and bored; the lady in red is eager for the next dance if someone will only ask her.  That so much emotion is conveyed so efficiently is a real triumph for Matthew’s Overlook series.  


  1. Going Gaga with Color

Awards donated by City Market /Onion River Co-op and

 Michael Chesley Johnson

Belle McDougall
Beetle Cat Light, Falmouth, MA

Beetle Cat Light may be my favorite find in the exhibit, as I have been moving it around for the award in just about every category.  It gets the color category award primarily because of its control.  While the colors are tweaked and saturated and toned up, they are also balanced and mutually supportive.  They do not fight with each other and they do not fight with the viewer.  Rather they work hard together to convey the serenity of their scene, offering an invitation to participate.  Two other observations:  the water is like glass – I would like to see much more water from Belle.  The frame almost caused me to overlook this painting, so in this case a smaller frame would let the painting breath more deeply. 



  1. The Yin and Yang of Light and Dark

Awards donated by Trader Joe’s, Burlington and

 Vermont Art Supply, Burlington 

Pat McPike
Stroll After Dinner

This work goes far beyond the usual concept of light in the windows casting a reflection on the water.  Light in windows easily can be a rather fascile device.  In this piece the windows are handled both playfully and knowingly.  While their reflection on the water shimmers, the piece gets it deepest strength from the treatment of the tall building at right, the lightest element in the composition, but easily overlooked.  It shimmers itself, as do all new constructions, throwing another kind of light on the scene. 


  1. “Seriously, Do a Series”

Award donated  by French Canvas

Kathryn Ditzer
Gathering Sap

The format Kathryn has chosen for this work emphasizes the particular strength of her vision, the ability to make a rather elongated shape, not the usual vertical, work together up and down the entire picture plain.  I would anticipate watching Kathryn develop this imagery throughout a year, standing in that exact spot through the seasons.  Her subtle and minimal use of color would benefit from the steadiness of her gaze while everything around her changed. 

 
  1. “Tell me more”

Award donated by Pro Art Critique

Kathleen Fleming
Gratitude

Kathleen Fleming gets this this award for the tiniest work in the exhibit because – literally – I want to see more.  The emotional content of Gratitude is outstanding; its virtuosity is strong and established.  What happens to her technique and her confidence when she expands her picture plain?  Can she do 100 more of these and maintain it?  Can we talk?

  1. “I’m being framed”

Award donated by Dostie Brothers’ Frame Shop, Burlington

Jacqueline Call
River of Glory

Jacqueline Call’s work is always growing, and has hit a new high in River of Glory which as it is titled, is a place of courage and enlightenment.  She deserves some frames to match her accomplishment.
 
 Juror’s statement


It was an honor and it was fun to award the prizes for the Vermont Pastel Society’s Members Exhibit.  When invited to do such a privileged job, it is for me like going to a party – I am always looking for surprises. 

In my everyday job at Bryan Memorial Gallery, I look at art all day long, which is almost as good as making art all day long.  So when I step outside the gallery and to look at art someplace else, I want to be surprised.

Well, you did it, Vermont Pastel Society!  There were surprises from so many of you, and just when I thought I had absorbed it all, there were more surprises.  And I’ll bet, I’ve done it right back to you.  The award categories were like a great big puzzle, and there were some pieces among the works that I wanted to award the prize in more than one category.  I could’ve used a few more awards to give out as well, but that’ll be another time. 

Of all the awards, the “Seriously, Do a Series” Award was probably my favorite, and the most difficult to decide.  That is because my great teacher always had us do 100 of something.  She would teach a technique or give an assignment, and then say, “Do 100 of it. . . .by our next class.”  So way back in my teenage years, I learned the value of series, and to this day, it is operative in my own studio. 

There are a couple of observations I would like to make after having had this lovely experience.  1)  Watch your skies.  As much as we all might want to be like the impressionists, their skies were not their strong suit.  Look up even on the dullest of days.  2)  Watch your frames.  Take care to let the artwork breath within the frame you select. 

Congratulations to all of you for a strong and playful show and thank you for inviting me to be a part of your mystique for this happy occasion.

Welcome to Spring 2016! There is much going on at VPS this year.


Dear VPS Members,
Welcome to Spring 2016!  There is much going on at VPS this year.

1. VPS Member show and Artist Reception – 4/1/2016 - VPS is having a member exhibition at Arts Alive (http://www.artsalivevt.org/) at Main Street Landing, 1 Main Street, Burlington, Vermont.  Arts Alive space is lovely, open space which is spectacular for our exhibit.  Thanks to Matthew Peake and Anne Unangst for organizing this exhibition. The show will be through the month of April with an artist reception and award presentations on April 1, 2016 from 6 PM - 7PM.  Please come if you have art in the show, but if you don't, come anyway to support your fellow pastelists and see the fabulous show.  It doesn’t hurt that it’s on Burlington’s Waterfront with lots of sightseeing and eateries around.  This show will host a variety of awards this year, which is not usually the case for our member exhibits.  Thanks to the suggestions from members, VPS voted to support more awards for such exhibits.  
Mickey Myers from the Bryan Memorial Gallery in Jeffersonville, Vermont will be judging the show and the 9 categories of prizes:
Most Luminous Landscape - Award donated by Mount Vision Pastel Company

Most Fluid Waterscape -Award donated by Dick Blick Art Materials

Most Lively Still Life - Award donated by Art Works Frame Shop, So Burlington

Most Figuratively Speaking - Awards donated by Rochester Art Supply and Michael Chesley Johnson

Remember – please come and share in this wonderful recognition of the VPS talent! April 1, 2016 from 6 PM - 7PM;
Main Street Landing, 1 Main Street, Burlington, Vermont

2.  VPS will be having a juried exhibition at the Company Music and Art Center (http://www.cmacvt.org/) in Brandon, Vermont.  This show's theme is “The Sky’s the Limit.”  Our two jurors, whose job it will be to select 50 paintings from the many images submitted, will be Alan Flattmann (http://alanflattmann.com) and Karen Israel (http://artbykarenisrael.com).  Our judge, Christine Ivers, (http://www.christineivers.com), will choose recipients from the selected artwork in the show to award the following prizes: Best in Show ($300), 2nd Place ($200), and 3rd Place ($100), along with two or three Honorable mentions (receiving art supplies valued from $30-75).  We are happy to be able to provide more awards for this exhibit, as well.   This exhibition runs from June through the end of July, with a reception and award presentation June 3rd from 1PM – 3PM.   Mark your calendar and save the date.
I’d like to thank other VPS members, who have been going out there to get the awards from suppliers, businesses, etc., to present at our exhibitions.  Thanks, thanks, thanks!
3.  VPS is very pleased we were able to offer limited seats to a 5-day, Richard McKinley workshop here in Vermont.  Thanks to Joyce Kahn in working with Richard to make this happen.  Richard did put a cap of 18 on participants but we hope to have him back again in the future. If there is anyone in other areas of Vermont who would like to spearhead a workshop with Richard, I’m sure Joyce would tell you how she did it.  Remember, if you organize it, you get in for FREE (what a deal!).   This workshop is August 15 – 19 and will be hopefully, mostly plein air. 
4.  Our VPS Annual meeting will be in the fall again, but more information on that to come out at another time.
5.  As most of you know, we have been looking at moving away from our existing website to one in which general computer types will be able to easily make changes to and update.  We are getting closer and we hope to move on this soon.  I apologize for not updating images and we will let you know as soon as we are ready to upload your new images to our new platform.  Thank you for your patience.
We do now have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Vermont-Pastel-Society-1526769437591380/?fref=ts) and it is up to 57 likes.  Go check it out and make entries.  This is a place that we could buy, sell or swap art supplies, too.  Keep an eye on it and see what pops up and feel free to jump right in to make additions to it.   Thanks Carol Corliss for managing this.
Remember, VPS also has a BLOG (http://vermontpastelsociety.blogspot.com/) and usually information on our exhibits is on there so you won’t forget dates and schedules.  There is a VPS Calendar tab on the BLOG as well.  We believe once we get our new website, the blog will be right on that site, making it easier to remember all the links.
6. Lastly, please remember you can help make VPS lively by organizing very simple things, such as a group paint day in a location of your choice (aka:  Paint Out), or you can borrow one of our art DVDs, which is free to you as a member, and invite a group of fellow artists over to watch it with you, or you can organize a workshop.  There are many options of things you can do.  Please let any Board member know if you have questions about anything you are thinking of.    Below are the Board Members:
