Poetry Reading at MGFA by GennaRose Nethercott

Date & Time: 
Oct 15 2017 - 5:30pm - 7:30pm


Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is proud to feature a reading of A Ghost of Water by GennaRose Nethercott this Sunday, October 15 at 5:30 pm during the Brattleboro Literary Festival. A Ghost of Water is a collaborative book featuring the artwork of Susan Osgood and ekphrastic poetry by Nethercott. MGFA’s current exhibit “Mapping the Unknown”, features many of the original oil paintings, monoprints, and collages by Osgood paired with Nethercott’s poetry.

GennaRose Nethercott is a writer, performer, and folklorist from the woodlands of Vermont. Her book The Lumberjack's Dove (Ecco/HarperCollins, 2018), was recently selected by Louise Glück as a winner of the National Poetry Series Award. Her work has appeared in many publications including The Offing, Rust & Moth, and PANK,  and she has toured nationally and internationally writing poems-to-order for passersby on a 1952 Hermes Rocket typewriter. Nethercott composed a poem-to-order for Susan Osgood on Main Street in Brattleboro one afternoon, and from this a connection was forged that resulted in the book A Ghost of Water.

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.

Publications of A Ghost of Water will be available at the Gallery. Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works that stimulate and challenge both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.
