All Souls Church hosts multimedia arts exhibit

WEST BRATTLEBORO — “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” a multimedia exhibit by six area artists, is on view at All Souls Church in the West Village Meeting House, 29 South Street, through Monday, Oct. 31.

The public is invited to a reception on Saturday, September 24, from 2 to 4 p.m.

The exhibit, curated by Stuart Copans, focuses on Vermont rocks, both actual ones and those portrayed in works of art by Copans, Maisie Crowther, Don Fitzpatrick, Kip King, Steven Meyer, and Charles Siggins II.

“Rocks preserve the rich and elaborate patterns that waves and currents create on the floor of the ocean as well in mountain streams, where the water flows in curves and spirals that are reproduced in the flow of molten rock that solidifies to preserve the patterns of both flow and turbulence,” according to a news release about the exhibit.

Maisie Crowther represents the flow of water over rocks in her watercolor paintings, and Kip King reveals intricate rock patterns through his photographs.

Don Fitzpatrick uses elaborate pendulum systems to create his art, harmonograms. Charles Siggins II creates his hand-drawn, energetic images from his imagination. Steven Meyer represents stone walls with India ink drawings.

Stuart Copans relies on the rhythms of his hands to create his papercuttings. Two of his paintings honoring the spirit of “Shalom” will also be on exhibit, in addition to rocks from his collection.

The show will be on view each Sunday from 11 a.m. to noon, and Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to noon. For more information, visit, or call 802-254-9377.
