Ewing the Stark Fisher: CU Bank Gallery Opening Reception

CU Bank Gallery Exhibition: Saturday, October 20th, 2018 – Saturday, December, 1 2018
Reception: October 26th, 5:30-7:30 pm in the C.U. Bank Gallery

This exhibition is a group exhibition of three painters from the surrounding region. From the Rutland artist J.R. Ewing with his bold color palette, to New York State based Roscoe T. Stark self-taught artist with excellent craft and meaning, to Mindy Fisher with her “Ornaglyphs” and her avian explosion of color there is something for everyone to enjoy at the C.U. Bank Gallery.

About the Artists:
-Mindy Fisher hails from New Hampshire but makes her home in Vermont and has exhibited and taught around the United States. Over the past decade she has been creating a series of paintings called “Ornaglyphs”. These surreal, gouache paintings feature a crazy cast of bird-like characters and a hieroglyphic non-language that is open to interpretation.
-Roscoe Tyler Stark resides New York State right across the border. His most current work adds to his continual journey as an artist and perpetual student. The styles, environments, and objects used in his recent paintings are connected to and drawn from his life experience, both the good and the bad.
-J.R. Ewing is a German born seventy year old self-taught painter and has lived in Rutland for 32 years. He works in many different mediums but always finding himself continually drawn back to acrylics. His subject matter ranges from landscapes, animals and abstractions.

Come on down and check it out!

Rutland’s First Drawing Day!


You are officially invited to participate in Rutland’s First Drawing Day, on Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm, the city’s first dedicated day for anyone interested in an artistic capture of our downtown.

If you like to draw, sketch, or color, you will want to mark your calendars to join the cadre of other like-minded folks, from kindergartners to octogenarians, novice to professionals. Anyone who’d think it could be an enjoyable experience to spend an afternoon with others drawing beautiful downtown Rutland are invited to bring their drawing materials to the city and pick a location to sketch.

All of Rutland’s seven current galleries will be open from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm and available to warm up, take a break, meet other drawers, and have some refreshments (restrooms will also be open at gallery locations for artists). There will be a welcome desk at the Opera House, the conclusion of Rutland Drawing Day will also take place in the Opera House, where the day’s drawings can submitted to be exhibited in one of the Rutland galleries and City Hall.

The intention of this event is to have folks draw drawings of downtown Rutland: the different store fronts, churches, streets, the dog in depot park, the new marketplace center st park, a statue, whatever sights of Rutland sparks your interest. It’s totally up to whatever inspires you! At the end of the day, we hope to have a whole slew of drawings to exhibit Rutland sketch by sketch.

This event is free, open to the public, and will go on rain or shine.

All are invited to join in and we hope you do — happy drawing!!!
