PUTNEY: Landmark College to Open Fine Arts Gallery
Inaugural Art Gallery Open House to Feature the Work of Artists Tim Segar and Craig Stockwell OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, March 6th, from 4 – 6 p.m. EXHIBITION RUNS: March 6th through April 20, 2013
PUTNEY – The Landmark College Fine Arts Gallery’s opening reception, featuring the work of sculptor Tim Segar and painter Craig Stockwell, will be held Wednesday, March 6th from 4 – 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Both Segar and Stockwell will be on hand to talk about their work.
Tim Segar is a sculptor trained at Rhode Island School of Design and UC Berkeley. Segar began his career making ceramic sculpture focused on theatrical groupings of forms called “Box Theaters.” After a period of working in steel and bronze also displayed in staged groupings, he has been involved with finding intersections between sculpture and drawing. The work on display at Landmark College, made of steam-bent arcs of oak and ash, becomes at once a drawing and a sculpture. He teaches at Marlboro College. Craig Stockwell began his studies at Dartmouth College and Rhode Island School of Design. His work has been widely reviewed, including by The New York Times, The Village Voice, Newsday, and The Soho News. He has shown his drawings and paintings extensively in New England and nationally, including the Nielsen Gallery in Boston, the Mills Gallery at Boston Center for the Arts, Marlboro College, New England College, the Fitchburg Art Museum, The Painting Center in New York, and the Spheris Gallery, among other venues. His work is in many permanent private and public collections, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Stockwell lives in Keene, New Hampshire where he teaches at Keene State College.
The Art Department is excited to launch this gallery as both a place to showcase curatorial projects in contemporary art and as a dynamic pedagogical tool supporting its curriculum.

How to submit a PRESS RELEASE
We'd love to post your venue's press release. Please send us a prose paragraph of text about the exhibition/event AND one or more jpeg images. Please DO NOT send just an electronic exhibition card. We reserve the right to decline inadequate press releases.
We want Vermont Art Zine to be a commons for our Vermont visual arts community, with information and pictures about shows, artists, and venues around the state. To make that happen, we need artist/writer participation from many, many different voices in many different places in Vermont.
Do you have ideas about issues and hot-button topics in the visual arts? We post questions for response and debate. Let us hear from you!

How To Add Your Link
If you're a Vermont artist or a visual arts presenter, we'd be happy to list your website or blog (one of each) in our LINKS. Send your link to email@example.com. If you'd put up a reciprocal link, that would be great!
Blog Listing Policy
Vermont Art Zine offers to link to one blog per Vermont artist. Send your request to the addresses above. We reserve the right to remove blogs from this list if they have been without a new post for 6 months. If you use your blog more as a website (that is, you put it up and then more or less leave it, with just occasional updates), ask us to list it under VT Artists instead.
We will be happy to link to one website for each Vermont artist. If you have a website and a blog, we will link to one of each. A Vermont artist is someone who resides in the state for more than half the year. Artist websites should be about the visual artwork of the artist. It's OK to sell through your site, but it should be your own work.
