PRESS RELEASE: Emiko Sawaragi Gilbert and Janet Van Fleet at Flynndog in Burlington

There will be two artists exhibiting in the post-arthop artspace at Flynndog from September 30 - October 29, 2010 in an exhibit entitled Afterward. The public is invited to two receptions: an Opening Reception on Thursday, September 30, 6-8 PM and a Gallery Walk Reception on Friday, October 1, 5-7 PM

Emiko Sawaragi Gilbert will be showing manipulated found branches in a series called Cornucopia, which references the bounty of nature and goodness she finds in Vermont. One piece, which is exhibited near the front door in On the Planet (closing September 22) will be a holdover in the new exhibit.

Janet Van Fleet is installing All Aboard, a long train whose cars are re-purposed from her three-dimensional work in wood, metal, and found materials. “Cars of insects, cars of warmakers, moneymakers, couples, walls, animals, teapots... kind of a cornucopia too, in its own way,” says the artist.
