PRESS RELEASE:Green Mountain College group exhibition


"Wild Flowers," Peter Huntoon
GMC Feick Arts Center to
Feature Local Artists

POULTNEY, VT – A group show at the
Feick Fine Arts Center August 3 features local artists working in mediums ranging from photography and painting to ceramics and pottery.

An opening reception will be held August 6 from 5-7 p.m. It is free and open to the public. All of the exhibitors are from southern and central Vermont.

Brandon-based artist Warren Kimble, well known for his folk art style, will be featured along with Margaret Stringer, a watercolor artist from Wells, and Middletown Springs-based watercolor artist Peter Huntoon. Huntoon creates “representational works of art inspired by the New England landscape and its people.”

Poultney resident Fred Michel is the show’s lone photographer. His work features landscape images from all over the globe. Husband and wife team Diane Rosenmiller and Nicholas Seidner established Rising Meadow Pottery in Middletown Springs in 1998. Seidner’s work often features “local raw materials” for glaze ingredients, while Rosenmiller’s work is influenced by her love of gardening and by historic medieval Asian pottery. Liza Myers, who has been a Vermont resident for over 20 years, creates ceramic sculptures and paintings that explore “connectivity and distance, and intimate details of the physical realm.”

The group show will be on display through August 28. The Feick Fine Arts Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m. There is no admission charge.
