Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts presents Larry Simons: Live It Up, an exhibition of wood and mixed media assemblages and sculpture. Opening and Artist Reception on Gallery Walk Friday, August 5, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Artist Talk Saturday, August 20, 5:00 pm. Exhibit continues through September 11.
Larry and Donna Simons owned and ran A Candle in the Night, a rug and furniture store that anchored downtown Brattleboro for over 40 years, and which is the current address of Mitchell-Giddings Fine Arts. In this homecoming exhibit we admire his ability to pursue his passion “… to explore and nurture my creative impulses by being an observer, forager and steward of beautiful objects.” Symmetry, repetition and delicate rhythms belie a restless and creative spirit. Simons’ work may be lyrical and subtle. It is often full of humor as the artist juxtaposes the unexpected (car tail lights) with wood scraps, or toy propellers with croquet stakes.
