Garbage Bag

In her meticulous manner, Carla had wrapped Jerry’s big kitchen knife in stiff layers of cardboard, generously wound with black tape. Whatever torn wrappers, putrid chicken bones, dented old cans, sticky wet tissues and other debris may have filled the bag; they were merely the packing material to conceal the evidence.

Artist Opening At Mitchell Giddings Fine Arts: David Rohn Watercolors 1974-2016

March 16 - April 30: Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is proud to feature a retrospective of watercolor paintings by Vermont painter David Rohn in David Rohn Watercolors: 1974-2016 . For the first time, MGFA will devote the entire gallery to a single artist with this exhibition of over thirty-five paintings. An opening reception is set to take place Thursday, March 16 at 5, with an Artist Talk scheduled for Saturday, March 25 from 5-7pm.

Rohn’s ability to speak through watercolor suggests an element of magic in his choice and command of materials and technique. Never intentionally arranged, the objects in Rohn’s compositions create a relationship of inherent balance and established order, bringing harmony and satisfaction to the eye. Remarks Rohn, “Sometimes a hidden composition seems so resolutely preconceived it is like finding an unknown Bach Partita crumpled in the trash.” His extraordinary gift of playful observation allows an unexpected appreciation and analysis of the common object.
