Rocks, Paper, Scissors – New Exhibit at West Village

Rocks, Paper, Scissors, a multimedia exhibit by six area artists, is now on view at All Souls Church in the West Village Meeting House through October 31.The public is invited to a reception on Saturday, September 24, 2 to 4 pm.

The exhibit, curated by Stuart Copans, focuses on Vermont rocks, both actual ones and those portrayed in works of art by Copans, Maisie Crowther, Don Fitzpatrick, Kip King, Steven Meyer, and Charles Siggins II, Rocks preserve the rich and elaborate patterns that waves and currents create on the floor of the ocean as well in mountain streams, where the water flows in curves and spirals that are reproduced in the flow of molten rock that solidifies to preserve the patterns of both flow and turbulence.

Maisie Crowther represents the flow of water over rocks in her watercolor paintings, and Kip King reveals intricate rock patterns through his photographs. Don Fitzpatrick uses elaborate pendulum systems to create his art, harmonograms. Charles Siggins II creates his hand-drawn, energetic images from his imagination. Steven Meyer represents stonewalls with India ink drawings. Stuart Copans relies on the rhythms of his hands to create his papercuttings. Two of his paintings honoring the spirit of ‘Shalom’ will also be on exhibit, in addition to rocks from his collection.

The show will be on view each Sunday from 11 am to 12 noon and Monday through Friday, 9 am to 12 noon. The West Village Meeting House is located at 29 South St, West Brattleboro,, 802 254 9377.
