PUTNEY — NXT Gallery, 15 Kimball Hill, hosts the opening reception of "Dragon Land," an exhibition by artist and acupuncturist Sarah H. Paulson. The event will take place on Sunday, Nov. 19, from 4 to 6 p.m.
"My art practice is performative," Paulson says in a news release. "I believe that performance, in its sacred form, has the capacity to bring the human being closest to what it means to be human. This sentiment is at the heart of all my work, including my drawings and paintings."
Paulson says "Dragon Land" presents inner worlds, creatures, and dynamic communication through her paintings. The unique aspect of this series is the canvas itself: a collaborative creation, involving artists, dancers, writers, and musicians who dipped their feet in pigment and contributed to the foundation of these artworks. Natural earth-based inks, crafted from a variety of organic sources, serve as the primary medium for this series.
"It is my hope that these landscapes can speak to the viewer in a language that transcends the spoken word," Paulson explains. "Art teaches me with every brushstroke and every gesture."
NXT Gallery is open during events at Next Stage and by appointment with the artist or by contacting Next Stage at [email protected] or 802-451-0053. The exhibit will continue through Feb. 11.
