Visual arts and shows

BELLOWS FALLS Claire Adams Solo Show - "Painting with Light": Adams' most recent work uses the traditional techniques of reverse painting, enameling, and staining glass to depict a detailed view of the cycle of natural life on the farm and in the garden. Painted and stained entirely by the artist, artworks such as "Sunflower and Crickets" and "Dalias & Bees" use traditional materials and methods like silver stain, and the grisaille technique in which black paint is scratched away and color is applied on top. Starting with recycled window glass, this process requires numerous firings in Adam's solar powered kiln, and uses modern, nontoxic enamel formulas. Each artwork is composed of many of these hand-painted and stained pieces of glass soldered together in patterns inspired by quilts and are beautiful on a wall or in a window. (Also see 9/17). 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wed.-Sat., parties of 3 at a time. First arriving in VT as assistant in the glass studio of Robert DuGrenier, Adams continues to present an evolving and experimental practice using old world methods and lost art techniques along with modern materials. She studied at the Corning School of Glass in NY and with masters of the techniques of reverse painting and enameling glass. "My patterns have been inspired by American quilts. I have been looking at traditional styles as well as the stunning asymmetrical styles of, specifically, African American quilts. To me each piece feels like a prayer. An earth prayer collecting light energy for healing and renewal!". Through Saturday, October 9. Canal Street Art Gallery, 23 Canal St. Information: www.canalstreetartgallery.com online, 802-289-0104, artinfo@canalstreetartgallery.com.
