Kristen M. Watson

March, 2019

Art’s Alive is dedicated to increasing awareness and appreciation of Vermont visual artists. Please join us in welcome Kristen M. Watson to the One Main Street Gallery starting in March of 2019.

Kristen works in a variety of media, with the common thread in much of her recent work, is that of interpreting what she is experiencing in her own life in terms of body transformation, self image, relationships, and observed human behavior. She does this through installations and intuitive mixed media painting. She uses whatever techniques and materials that communicate to her ideas effectively, but is particularly drawn to manipulating and fabricating digital designs and internet-based ephemera and collecting discarded/ unwanted personal effects (both material and digital). The works speak to personal (and often universal) experience which include the exploration of social psychology, boundaries, behavior, acceptance, and inequality. Her intention is to create emotionally and mentally stimulating work that is also aesthetically distinct and compelling.

This exhibit will run through the end of April. For more information about the exhibit or Art’s Alive, please contact SEABA at 802-859-9222 or artsalivevt@seaba.com Open M-F, 8-3pm, Sat-Sun by apt only. Curated by SEABA

“What Brings Me Joy” Exhibit by Emily Mitchell Studios

March-April 2019

Art’s Alive, Seaba Burlington and Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center warmly welcomes Richmond Artist, Emily Mitchell and her exhibit “What Brings Me Joy”.

In her newest collection of acrylic paintings, Emily Mitchell, continues to create colorful stories about aspects of life which bring joy, love and appreciation. This current collection has a renewed sense of calm, peace and celebration of the things which lift us all up and provide a visual break from contemporary, complex issues.

Emily Mitchell’s acrylic paintings are a vibrant celebration of love, nature and relationships. Through the development of many layers of paint and marks on the canvas, she weaves layered and complex narratives.  Deep within her layers of paint, are the layers within of all of us – thin and thick, complex, translucent skins of color and texture, masking, but not eliminating, our shared experiences, feelings and moments.

Accompanying Emily in The Gallery for the Video Installation we would like to welcome Hugo Martin Alexander Ljungbaeck, with the film “Last Words [sic]” (2017).

Hugo Ljungbäck is a Swedish queer moving image artist, film curator, and media scholar. His work has screened internationally at such venues as the Montreal Underground Film Festival, the Beijing International Short Film Festival, and Pixel Film Festival, and regularly explores queer themes, sexual abuse, and coercion. His research interests include film, media, and critical theory, experimental film, and video art, and he has been published in the AM Journal of Art and Media Studies and The Projector: A Journal on Film, Media, and Culture. He is an Undergraduate Research Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and a programmer for the Milwaukee Underground Film Festival.

Please join us for the Artist Reception, Friday April 5th, 5-8pm. Exhibit runs through end of April.
