WOODSTOCK: "Charlie Hunter & Clair Dunn" at ArtisTree

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 27, 6-8:30 pm
October 27 - November 17, 2012
An exhibit of plein air painting and photography reflecting hardships and harmony.

CHARLIE HUNTER is a Bellows Falls-based Vermont artist, currently emerging on the national level. In 2012 he won awards at plein air painting events across the East, including Easton, MD (Best New Artist), Wayne, PA, Cranford, NJ and Plein Air Vermont. This show of paintings from Summer, 2012 captures Hunter's propensity for the drippy, begrimed and neglected.

"This is not the Vermont of fall leaves and covered bridges the tourists come to see, but the Vermont of abandoned Plymouths, lost industries and declining family farms. Charlie Hunter captures that everyday beauty with realism and sympathy, his eye eager for the telling detail, the unusual viewpoint, and the unexpected angle." - Art New England

CLAIR DUNN sees Vermont in black and white. Her rural images often capture the result of abandonment while "rural urban" images depict the very human and very comfortable scale of Vermont's towns. The former are fast vanishing, the latter we still have time to think about. She lives and works in Swanton.
