BRATTLEBORO—Through March 18, Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts, 183 Main St., presents “Winter Group,” an exhibit of new work by Donald Saaf, Torin Porter, Josh Bernbaum, and Jackie Abrams, and select work by their gallery artists. They are also pleased to welcome and introduce printmaker Erika Radich.

An artists reception is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 11, from 5 to 7 p.m., with a collaborative artist talk set for Saturday, Feb. 10, at 5 p.m.

Painter and collage artist Donald Saaf creates work at the intersection of fine and folk art, exploring place as it is experienced in memory. His newest pieces reflect themes of inner growth and contentment.

Torin Porter’s steel sculptures engage our imagination with his playful, stylized figures. His newest work is richly symbolic of conflict and transcendence.

Josh Bernbaum’s hand-blown glass stands out with its vibrant colors, patterns, and surprising intricate textures. New work featured in this show is inspired by patterns of West African textiles and cacti in the Southwest.

Fiber artist Jackie Abrams explores feminine form and experience through her woven vessels, with delicate and luminescent pieces featured in this show.

Erika Radich has been involved in the arts administratively and professionally for more than 30 years. Since her college years, she has chosen printmaking as a compass and vehicle to best express her artistic vision. She exhibits her work regionally and internationally and is an active member of Zea Mays Printmaking Center in Florence, Mass.
