Mary Lamboley and Glynnis Fawkes will be exhibiting new work at 215 College Gallery in Burlington this month.The exhibit- " After Images" features recent drawings by Mary Lamboley. These exquisite atmospheric drawings of interior and exterior spaces use paradox and ambiguity to play between the familiar and the unfamiliar so that through contemplation, they can suggest the universal in common places and the conditions that create them. The exhibit- " Before Troy" -includes paintings by Glynnis Fawkes. These delicately rendered depictions of archaeological sites are peopled by characters from mythology in modern dress. These contemporary landscapes of ancient sites serve as a stage for both mythological and lived human comedy. The exhibit is curated by gallery member, Kate Donnelly and runs from March 26 through April 18 , 2010. An opening reception will be held on March 26 , 5-8pm, with an artsits' talk at 5:30.

Mary Lamboley is an artist who draws inspiration from her experiences living, working and traveling in the US, Europe, and Africa, as well as from her studies of the relationships between eastern philosophy, science, art, and creativity which inform the practice of being in the world in ethical and sustainable ways. She has exhibited work nationally and internationally and is currently working as the Founder’s Assistant with a year-long staff artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson.

Glynnis Fawkes grew up in Portland, Oregon. Her studies have taken her all over the world including the Middle East, where she worked as an archaeological illustrator on many excavations, in Cyprus, Greece, Lebanon, Turkey, Israel, and Syria. Ms. Fawkes has taught Archaeological Illustration and Comics at UVM and various courses at Burlington City Arts. She works and lives in Burlington with her music-archaeologist husband and two spirited young children.

The mission of 215 College Gallery is to explore visual art in all mediums: to build a network for connecting and communicating with one another, other artists, and the community at large. We promote excellence and diversity in the arts with monthly openings of new work by members, and curated shows of guest artists presented in our professional gallery space. This space provides a venue where artists control both the curatorial process and pricing of their work. Proceeds from sales go directly to the exhibiting artist.
