Vermont Artist to Exhibit at the
GMC Feick Arts Center
POULTNEY, VT – Seeing the literal through the practice of repetition is one theme for a new exhibit opening at Green Mountain College’s Feick Fine Arts Center October 27.
“Between the Lines” features ink on paper and oil on canvas work from Vermont-based artist Cameron Schmitz. The opening reception is Thursday, October 30, from 5 – 7 p.m. The show runs through November 21.
Since earning her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia in 2006, Schmitz has gone on to receive many awards and accolades. In 2007, she was one of three artists from the United States represented in the contemporary international exhibition, “Kigami/Mirrors” in Kyoto, Japan. In 2008 she was included in the Fitchburg Art Museum’s Biannual “New England/New Talent” exhibition, which represented only 13 artists from across New England. Most recently, she was awarded the Board of Directors Award for originality and excellence in the fine arts by Arts Alive in Burlington, Vermont. She continues to exhibit her work in venues across the northeastern United States.
Schmitz describes her work as highlighting the themes of “repetition, tradition, accumulation and memory.” She uses handwritten text as meditations presenting “new ways of seeing the literal through the practice of repetition.”
The Feick Fine Arts Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 1-5 p.m.
