Temporary stores emerge with local art for the holidays
Mother-daughter team Meg Streeter and Charlotte Hoffman with backgrounds in business, art and real estate will open a Holiday Pop Up Shop in Wilmington every weekend in December. The shop, called Display Wilmington, will be located in the historic Home Center at 1 East Main Street. It will feature a selection of art and gifts by artists from Vermont and around the world. Blown glass ornaments, hand-crafted wooden trays, Vermont balsam wreaths, and ceramic plates are among some of the shop offerings.
Charlotte grew up in Wilmington and currently lives in New York City and her mom Meg owns a local real estate business. They’re thrilled to be doing something for Wilmington following the devastation of Tropical Storm Irene.
…and in Brattleboro
Cynthia Reeves New England pop-ups in Brattleboro with several curated shows that will be on view over the coming six months. Cynthia-Reeves New England has an eighteen-year history of exhibiting innovative contemporary artwork in the Connecticut River Valley. In 1995, the gallery originally opened under the name Spheris in Walpole, NH. After mounting exhibitions in Hanover, NH for the past seven years, the business will be moving back to Walpole in the summer of 2014. Prior to that date, the gallery has planned several exhibitions on Flat Street. The December show CHOATE/CHAOS explores the tension between the two states as seen through the lens of six international artists in their respective media of painting, video and sculpture. The show features the works of Shen Chen, Michael Mulhern, Lee Jung Woong, Magdelena Fernandez, Oliver Marsden, and George Sherwood. Beginning January 3 through March 1, the works of Ray Ruseckas and Daniel Kohn will be featured. Following that from March 7 through April 26, the works of Sarah Amos and Lorrie Fredette will be featured. The final show will open May 2 and go through June 30 and will include the works of Dawn Black, Lionel Smit, Daniel Julian Norton and Thomas Munita.
