Mitchell-Giddings presents ‘Inner Landscapes’

BRATTLEBORO — Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts, 183 Main St., presents “Inner Landscapes: Three Views,” paintings and collaged prints by New Hampshire artists Maggie Cahoon, Jessie Pollock, and Erika Radich.

An opening and artists reception will take place on Saturday, July 15, from 5 to 7 p.m. The show continues through Aug. 27, and all are invited to an artist forum scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 6, at 5 p.m.

Cahoon, Pollock, and Radich bring together their “unique and highly personal, nonfigurative imagery to fashion an exhibition of deep, reflective, imaginative spaces while responding through a diverse palette of explosive color,” organizers say.

Within her series of paintings titled Beyond Measure, alcohol inks offer Cahoon the freedom to “explore a world of lucid and sensual color. With diaphanous veils and swirls, the artist generates a sense of peace and mystery.” Cahoon invites viewers to “this place that offers no words or labels, asking one to look close, or stand back, and bathe in something beyond measure.”

In her series Petrichor - the scent that occurs when it rains after a long dry spell - Pollock introduces the viewer to “a vision of a world of atmosphere and grit, soft and rugged, influenced by our changing climate, vanishing landscape, and the mysterious energy of stones.”

Radich organizes cut pieces of discarded or repurposed prints into Refuge, what she calls her “village of collages” that may be viewed as community and connection. Tippy or balanced, Radich's structures “remove the weight of isolation from our lives and transport us to a place of optimism and hope.”

Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts is open Thursday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call 802-251-8290 or mitchellgiddingsfinearts.com.
