Thank you Hotel Vermont for hosting four paintings in conjunction with Art Hop 2016!
Thank you to Ten Bends Beer for featuring Two Faces in their tasting room!
A quick walk-through of Seb Sweatman’s 11 pieces currently up at the Vermont Contemporary Art Space Summer show. The show is open until October 16, 2016. Come visit!
Going counter clockwise (to the right) as you come down the three stairs into the finished gallary space, are Seb’s two larger paintings. “Love is Red”, is on the right, and “One way to hell” is on the left.
Then, facing the two paintings above is “Yellow Door”, painted in 2014.
Next to City Lights is “While Red and Blue slept, Orange crept in”.
And opposite Composition 9, on the panel is “Dentist visit”, finished in 2016.
And then, the final piece is “Got religion”, 2016. The sculpture on the left is “Two Plant Forms” in steel, by Alexandra Heller.
WHAT: A pop-up art gallery focusing on Vermont Contemporary Art.
WHY: The Vermont Contemporary Art Space idea was hatched by Sebastian Sweatman after reading the Seven Days article (4/6/16) ‘Making Art Work for a Living‘, by Rachel Jones, Sadie Williams & Amy Lilly‘ and reflecting on his own efforts to get his paintings ‘out there’.
Specifically, the article identified a mismatch between the artistic creativity of Vermont, “Vermont has one of the highest percentages of artists per capita,” and yet, “ranks the poorest for art sales” as reported by the Vermont Arts Council. The goal of Vermont Contemporary Art Space is to close the gap!
HOW: Our strategy is to exhibit important works from committed Vermont contemporary artists. Let us know how we do.
