It is Re-starting......Reboot after summer

Chatham Art Agency, in all its permutations on view at Greenarts.
So, what did you do over the summer?  I hope you had a chance to see some of the great cultural happenings the season is known for.  This image shows the Chatham Art Agency on the road and on display as part of an exhibit at the Greene County Council for the Arts titled Give and Take: A Collection of Past Individual Artist Grant Recipients.

Our contemporary art reading and discussion group will be getting underway this month with a bang.  Artist Madison LaVallee will be offering a talk about her work on Wednesday, September 23, (6:30 - 7:45) at the Chatham Public Library (upstairs.)  Hope you all can make it and please, spread the word!

Madison LaVallee Installing 
Maddi will be installing her work in the window at Stone House Properties this Saturday, September 12, where it will be on view through November.  Stop by on Saturday from 4-6 pm for a little meet and greet and enjoy the other TWO art openings happening on Main Street at the Joyce Goldstein Gallery and Thompson Giroux Gallery.  

Jaymee Harvey's work on through Friday, Sept. 11, 2015
Over the summer Maddi and another friend from graduate school, Jaymee Harvey and I developed a new theme for the window at Stone House Properties that began in July. 

This theme: “Labor and Fantasy in the Domestic Sphere” will celebrate and reclaim or question and reassert themes around home, inside/outside, and domestic space.

The office of Stone House Properties at 9 Main Street is it’s own kind of transitional domestic space.  Nicely appointed with comfortable seating that could be found in a living room, one can sit and have a conversation while searching for a new home.  Thanks so much to Nancy Cuddihy of Stone House Properties for her continued support in allowing a little art to happen in the window!
