Using various media, Michelle Vigeant explores a world of animals. As they walk, their shadows form puddles of creation around their paws. The fox, a trickster armed with a paintbrush, draws surreal dreamscapes and the moon itself. These scenes are depicted in vivid colors playing with light and mood.

I paint for the way it makes me feel. When I am engaged in art making, I am fully caught up in the medium, my tools and my vision. I've learned not to think about the piece that I will end up with because the time spent engaged in the creative activity is what is most important to me. I enjoy feeling detached yet completely engaged. When I am in my art zone time goes by at a surreal pace. It's all about the process for me. The product is a bonus.

Hours: Sun-Thur 9am-12am, Fri 9am-8pm, Sat 9am-5pm

City/Town: Amherst
Website: www.amherst.edu/mead

This exhibition presents some of the ways in which artists have employed collage, and the related forms of photomontage and film montage, throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. As a technique, collage involves the physical layering of disparate elements often borrowed from other contexts. This capacity for fragmenting and combining have rendered collage both an inexhaustible medium and emblematic of the ever-changing modern world.

Sitting at the dining room table, we watch the birds at our feeder. They move so quickly that the naked eye sees only a blur of wings. But with a camera set at high speed, Ben stops the action to reveal a split second of wings in motion. The high-speed camera exposes unexpected emotions of surprise, anticipation, challenge, and even anger. Simply sitting in his house, Ben has found these beautiful and thought-provoking images.

Florence Exhibits/Events

Bolt

Artist: Donnabelle Casis
Start Date: May 20, 2019
End Date: June 21, 2019
Reception Date: June 21, 2019
Location Name: Red Light Gallery at Workroom Design Studio
Hours: Mon-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat-Sun by appt
Address: 30 Main Street
City/Town: Florence
Website: www.workroomdesignstudio.com

Casis' work explores personal identity and its relationship to markers and patterns. She researches textiles and tattoos that tell a story. The exhibition title 'Bolt' is a multi-level reference. Bolt can be defined as: a roll of cloth; a lightning stroke; to dart off; and to sift through a fine-meshed cloth. Casis believes the process of contextualizing visual information is akin to filtering information quickly, where connections can be compelling and electric.

Laro's assemblages and silkscreens are deeply rooted in pop culture and explore themes of class, race, gender, privilege and power. Laro is a natural visual storyteller. His tools of the trade are the remnants rescued from flea markets and junk shops, assembled and silkscreened into stunning works of art that challenge us to look beyond the stereotypes and impossible to separate from current politics and social movements.

Hours: Fri-Sat 1-5pm
Address: 13 Montague Road
City/Town: Leverett
Website: barnesgallery.org

John's winter flowers are fashioned from bits & pieces of metal and wood. They bring out the inherent forms of our surrounding shrubs and flowers wintering over just waiting for spring to create more fascinating branches and stems for their autumnal return. We all see our world through the prism of experience and inclination. These pieces allow us to remember the vibrant colors and bring forth the fascinating structure and incongruity of nature and materials.

Roads & Rails

Artist: Louise Minks

Location Name: Sawmill River Arts Gallery
Hours: Mon & Wed 12-4pm, Thur-Sun 12-6pm
Address: 440 Greenfield Road
City/Town: Montague
Website: www.sawmillriverarts.com

"Roads & Rails" includes one of Louise Minks' favorite painting subjects, steam trains. Old cars and trains refresh memories for many people, images right out of scrapbooks and photo albums. Louise often adds a twist, perhaps huge flowers that make cars and trucks seem very small, or an intense red background behind the steel blacks, blues and grays of an old engine. Since history is a favorite focus for Louise, playing with historical images and shapes is for her a challenge and a joy.

Hours: Mon & Wed 9am-9pm, Tue & Thur 10am-6pm, Fri & Sat 9am-5pm
Address: 20 West Street
City/Town: Northampton
Website: forbeslibrary.org

"Photography has evolved for me as a way to recognize the life of worlds very different from my own. As I travel I look to discover subjects and configurations that, in compelling ways, transcend their time and place. As empathy with chosen subjects is often very strong, desire to do them justice in camera/darkroom work can be counterproductive. But when I let go of all agendas my subjects seem to meet me halfway, and there comes a moment when I suddenly see the finished result and know how to achieve it."

Hours: 8am-8pm
Address: 30 Locust Street
City/Town: Northampton

The inaugural show of the Meadowbrook Arts Camp. Envisioned by two residents of the Meadowbrook Housing Complex in Florence, the camp was founded on the belief that each person IS art. What we do with paint, clay, music, pen or dance is an extension of ourselves. The art works are conversations we have with our world and with each other. Each child who participated in the MAC had the opportunity to go on a journey into and through their own emerging "voice".

Neal Parks exhibits very large mystical oil paintings in three showrooms at the Anchor House of Artists including the Big and Little Galleries plus the New England Visionary Artists Museum Wing. By what he explains and for those who have some knowledge of things astrological, Parks was once given a star chart reading with the 12th House as a predominant feature in his cosmological makeup. There was a resonance for him in that arcane label. Image: "12th" House.

She left to the Anchor House of Artists over seven hundred paintings, thousands of drawings, and journal writing dating back to 1956. Our endeavor now is to research her rich legacy and to present this oeuvre in serial exhibitions to the public. This show is a condensed exhibition from the past month featuring her cat paintings.

New oil paintings by artist Larry Preston. Working in the still life tradition, he explores subjects as varied as eggs from his own chickens, amaryllis flowers, knobby wild apples, and stacks of jelly donuts. Preston's work has been featured repeatedly in American Art Collector, which stated that he, "... rivals the Flemish Old Masters he studied as a youth." His paintings have a richness of color that is the result of many applications of thin colored glazes on smooth prepared wooden panels.

These pieces, at least while in progress, are about relationships: what color next to which, what pattern or shape settles in or calls for more action, what happens when the paint physically engages with or ignores or obscures the drawn shape? What excites or calms or irritates? Often small changes answer large questions.
