Artist Talk at Mitchell - Giddings Fine Arts: Susan Osgood

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts invites you to an Artist Talk with Susan Osgood on Saturday, October 28 at 5pm. Osgood will be speaking and answering questions about her current exhibit Mapping the Unknown, featuring monotypes, oil paintings and collages accompanied by the ekphrastic poetry of GennaRose Nethercott. Mapping the Unknown will run at MGFA through November 5.

Susan Osgood’s work is known for its rich use of atmospheric color fields which, combined with calligraphic surface lines form a sense of intriguing depth. The atmospheric backgrounds that rest beneath fluid, map-like lines in Mapping the Unknown transport the viewer “to the place of not-knowing--where we are suspended for a moment in the timelessness of curiosity and fascination.” It is through this shared fascination with the allusions of color and the power of light and darkness that viewers are brought to a world free of objectivism, energized by its sense of mystery.

Desensitization

Desensitization occurs when someone is overexposed to scenes of violence, cruelty or suffering. Those scenes then become less likely to cause feelings of shock or distress.

There is another definition. Desensitization is also a process by which someone is freed from a fear or neurosis by gradually exposing that person to the thing they fear until it is no longer an issue.

Vermont Jazz Center Presents: Tom Harrell Quartet

Trumpet Legend, Tom Harrell to perform with his quartet at the Vermont Jazz Center on October 14th

On Saturday, October 14th at 8:00 PM, the Vermont Jazz Center will welcome the legendary trumpeter, Tom Harrell to the stage.  He will be touring with pianist Danny Grissett, bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Joe Dyson in support of their new release, Moving Picture.

Although Harrell has recorded 30 discs as a leader, this current album is the first that features him as the sole horn in a quartet setting. Like Miles Davis before him, Harrell can most often be found in a quintet setting pairing
him with a tenor saxophonist (usually Wayne Escoffery), but, for this project, he has intentionally chosen to record and tour without another frontline instrument. This gives him room to work on unexplored textures and stretch out on his solos. In the liner notes of their current release he elaborates: “I wrote the arrangements with the instrumentation of the quartet and the specific players in mind. There’s a lot of ensemble writing on Moving Picture - concerted writing with piano and trumpet as well as unison writing with bass and trumpet. I think this brings interest, as it is different from my writing for previous records. Then too, when I write a melody I think of it as something for the globe. I try to make it accessible for everyone and capable of being played or sung by any combination of instrument(s) or voice(s).”

An Indigenous Ballad

In fourteen hundred ninety-two

Columbus sailed the ocean blue

It was a courageous thing to do

But someone was already here.

 

Chorus:

Inuit and Cherokee,

Aztec and Menominee,

The Onondaga and the Cree;

Someone was already here.
