Wood Rabbit Arts Pop-Up Gallery


Date & Time: 
Sep 1 2017 - 6:00pm - Sep 4 2017 - 9:00pm

Wood Rabbit Arts, the studio of Brattleboro painter Julia Eva Bacon, announces a 4-day-only pop-up exhibit at 80 Main Street, Brattleboro, VT, September 1 - 4. The show features Bacon's "Animal Spirit Guide Collection," including large- and small-scale animal paintings in oil. Vermont Abenaki artist Linda Longtoe Sheehan will also showcase handmade wampum belts and jewelry.

The gallery will open during Brattleboro's Gallery Walk, Friday, Sept. 1st, with an opening reception from 5:00 to 9:00pm. Original work, prints, and postcards will be available for purchase and light refreshments will be offered. The gallery will remain open Saturday, Sept. 2 – Monday, Sept. 4 from 9:00am – 9:00pm.

Works from the exhibit can be found on Julia Eva Bacon's website at www.woodrabbitarts.com. The Vermont painter is inspired by our connection to the natural world by way of its animal inhabitants. "For me, animals have always provided that grounding connection to what is sacred—a serenity that pulls us out of our everyday chaos and focuses our attention on simply being," she says. Though Bacon's paintings are created in a realistic style, there is an emotive quality to her subjects that tell a deeper story and convey powerful messages. "Though our natural world has never been more imperiled than it is today, I believe we are at a moment in human development that will bring a renewed reverence to our union with all living things."

Joining Bacon during the exhibit is Linda Longtoe Sheehan, displaying her wampum belts and jewelry. "I have been designing and making wampum belts, wrist bands, necklaces, bracelets and earrings for over 30 years. I work with real Quahog, glass and mother of pearl wampum beads." Linda's work has been on display at the Institute for American Indian Studies and at Johnson Hall Historic Site. Learn more at www.abenakiart.org.

A small percentage of sales throughout this exhibit will go to Julia's Way, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring parents, medical professionals, and the general public to reimagine what's possible for those living with Down syndrome through education, advocacy, and awareness.
