ARTIST’S ARTISTS THE WAY YOU LOOK TIM SIMONDS AND ASHISH AVIKUNTHAK

AUGUST 10 – OCTOBER 7, 2018 Lower Level Gallery, BCA Center Artist Reception: Friday, August 10, 6 - 7:30 p.m. Guest Curator Talk: Pete Moran Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 6 - 7:30 p.m.

In this inaugural installment of the Artist’s Artists series, Vermont-based artist and guest curator Pete Moran brings the acute, timebased work of filmmaker Ashish Avikunthak into contact with Tim Simonds’ intimate and careful sculpture. The light from Avikunthak’s early, ritual based films, spills off the screen into the immediate, encompassing world of Simonds’ wall-to-wall carpet punctuated with bleached vegetables and stainless steel. Here, a mystery can become its own answer, and an experience can become its own meaning. As we see, smell, hear and feel these artworks, we are left to wonder not just how we look at art, but how different ways of looking can change how we perceive the world. The Artist’s Artists series offers insights into contemporary art by inviting Vermont artists to guest curate intriguing and challenging work that has influenced their creative practice.

AUGUST 10 – OCTOBER 7, 2018 Roth Gallery, BCA Center Artist Reception: Friday, August 10, 6 - 7:30 p.m.

Visual Analogies features the photography of two recent graduates, Vanessa Kotovich and Penn Chan, who explore themes of growth and decay; myth and reality; and the beautiful and the grotesque. Penn Chan captures the beauty of destructive forces and nature’s resiliency in his series, Second Growth, while Vanessa Kotovich immerses the viewer in the surreal beauty and lush decay of idyllic sanctuaries in her series Natura. Representing a new generation of contemporary photographers, Chan and Kotovich embrace the discomfort of the world and explore the extremes in creating imagery that is as unsettling as it is beautiful.
