Where Folk Art and Modern Meet
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning ( GMALL ) is delighted to welcome back Jamie Franklin , curator at the Bennington Museum , to talk about the convergence of folk and modern art . The talk will take place on December 6 from 5:30-7pm in Burr and Burton ’ s Bell Tower Room at Founders Hall . This talk will also be available as an online presentation via Zoom . This presentation , originally created in conjunction with the 2014 Bennington Museum exhibition Alice Neel / Erastus Salisbury Field : Painting the People ( named one of the nine most memorable exhibitions in North America by Karen Wilkin of the Wall Street Journal ), looks at the intersection of folk art and modernism , primarily in America , during the early to mid-twentieth century . As early as the 1910s , objects such as hooked rugs , weathervanes , decoys , and portraits by itinerant artists began to be appreciated by progressive artists , dealers , collectors , and curators for their aesthetic value , as opposed to their purely historic interest . By the late 1930s “ folk art ” came to be seen as an integral aspect of modern art , shown alongside the likes of Picasso and Klee at the Museum of Modern Art in New York . This illustrated presentation will explore this evolution and its continuing impact on artists and the art world in the 21st century . Registration is $ 18 per person and pre-registration is required . For more information or to register , please call 802-867-0111 or visit greenmtnacademy . org .
Wild Wood II Exhibit at Equinox Village
Photographer and owner of Whistle Wing Prints , Kristina Martin , teams up with woodworker , CJ Lyttle in Wild Wood II . The work of these artists is wholly inspired by nature , particularly birds .

CJ will also be sharing an exhibit of framed classic lithograph prints from the limited edition prints “ Classic Shorebird Decoys ” by Milton C . Weiler . Including old carvings from a collection , most lacking the maker ’ s name . Kristina began birding in 2016 , which led to her love of photographing wildlife , landscapes and farmscapes . The artists met at Valley Artisans Market , a 40-year-old artist ’ s cooperative in Cambridge , New York , where they are active members and exhibit their artwork along with 25 other artists . The show will be open daily , 9am-5pm , now through January 4 at the Gallery at Equinox Village , 49 Maple St ., Manchester Ctr ., VT 05255 .
