“Red Mountain” to Open at Feick Fine Arts Center
POULTNEY – “Red Mountain,” an exhibit from video and installation artist Derek Larson, opens at Green Mountain College’s Feick Fine Arts Center January 21. The opening reception will be held from 4-6 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
A 2007 graduate of the MFA program at the Yale School of Art in Sculpture, Larson teaches digital art classes in video and animation for motion graphics and multimedia projects. He has served as an adjunct professor at colleges in Vermont and New Hampshire, including Green Mountain College in 2008. Exhibits of his work have been featured at galleries and museums in San Francisco, Seattle, Miami, Detroit, New York, and Toronto. Larson was recently nominated for the 2009 Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant in New York.
In the spring of 2009, Larson served as artist in residence at Crawl Space, a gallery in Seattle, Wash. He prepared an exhibition from scratch during seven days and nights of confinement on the Crawl Space grounds. The installation investigated “culturally nostalgic objects and the effects internet mediation has on the emotional resonance of these artifacts.”
“Red Mountain” will be on display from January 18-February 19. The Feick Fine Arts Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m. There is no admission charge.
